Overview   Match History    



Katarina The Sinister Blade is a melee assassin AP Carry. One of her trademarks in competitive play is that she benefits from the reset mechanic as a result of her passive, Voractiy. Katarina is a great "finishing move" champion due to high burst and mechanics such as Sinister Steel, which grants movement speed if it hits an enemy champion. When paired with her Shunpo ability, it can be used as a gap closer or an escape. One of the keys to avoiding the majority of her damage is to crowd control her once she begins to use Death Lotus.

Champion Spotlight

Description

Lore: Driven by an intense killer instinct, Katarina uses her talents as an assassin for the glory of Noxus, and the continued elevation of her family. While her fervor drives her to ever-greater feats, it can sometimes lead her astray.

From childhood, Katarina displayed a natural gift for combat. As the daughter of a prominent Noxian general many paths were open to her, but she rejected them all for the path of the blade. Rigorously trained by the finest assassins in Noxus, her father the best among them, it was not long before Katarina demanded her first assignment. The task they gave her was aggravatingly simple: assassinate a low-ranking Demacian officer. As she set to her work infiltrating the enemy camp, Katarina discovered an opportunity too tantalizing to pass by - the arrival of a Demacian General. Stalking him to his tent, she quietly dispatched his guards and slit his throat. Pleased with her impressive kill, she disappeared into the night. Katarina's elation faded the next day when her original objective, the Demacian officer, led his forces to ambush unprepared Noxian soldiers. Though the Noxians fought valiantly, they suffered heavy casualties. Furious at her mistake, Katarina set off to complete her original task. Returning to the camp, she spied her now heavily guarded target and realized a stealthy kill was no longer possible. Drawing her blades, Katarina swore the officer would die, no matter the cost. She leapt into battle, unleashing a whirlwind of steel. One by one blades flashed and guards fell, each strike bringing her one step closer to the officer. A final thrown dagger restored her honor. Bloody and bruised, Katarina barely escaped the Demacian forces, and returned to Noxus a changed woman. The scar she earned that night now serves as a constant reminder that she must never let passion interfere with duty.

"Never question my loyalty. You will never know what I endure for it."

Patch History

Patch Notes 7.7

E cooldown increased at early ranks.
Quote.png At the moment it's somewhat difficult to punish Katarina in the early game thanks to Shunpo’s low cooldown, even when she isn’t taking advantage of the partial reset from jumping to daggers. Increasing Shunpo’s downtime opens up more opportunities to catch Katarina out, particularly if you can force her to Shunpo back to a less-than-ideal target. Unquote.png

ShunpoS5.png E - Shunpo

  • COOLDOWN: 10/9.5/9/8.5/8 seconds ⇒ 14/12.5/11/9.5/8 seconds

Patch Notes 7.4

Minus 2 MR from Slytherin.
Quote.png Katarina had 2 more base MR than she was supposed to. Whoops. Unquote.png
  • Base stats
    • BASE MAGIC RESISTANCE: 34 ⇒ 32

Patch Notes 7.2

E ratio down.
Quote.png Terrorizing high level play (and the Jin Air Green Wings), to say that Katarina’s flashy update packs a punch would be an understatement. A large part of Kat’s oppressive power comes from her early all-in strength: she’s able to land multiple abilities on opponents before they have access to most of their tools. When looking at where we could even the playing field, Shunpo felt like the obvious choice for having the least actual gameplay when used solely for its damage. Katarina’s lethal takedowns should reward anticipation, execution, and dagger tossing; repeatedly clicking on your opponent in the early-game no longer carries as much weight toward that end. Unquote.png
  • ShunpoS5.png E - Shunpo
    • RATIO: 0.65 total attack damage ⇒ 0.5 total attack damage

Patch Notes 6.24

Dagger damage increased in the early/mid game.
Quote.png Given Katarina’s focus on damage dealing, it’s a bit surprising that only one of her basic abilities (Bouncing Blade) gains substantial base damage with rank-up. Instead, a huge chunk of damage comes from champion level scaling via Kat’s new dagger mechanic. So, the Sinister Blade hits a mid-game slump: though daggers keep gaining damage with level and she gets better dagger access via lower Preparation and Shunpo cooldowns, Kat’s unable to prioritize damage itself in her skill-ups once she’s maxed Bouncing Blade. In most reasonable matches, Kat hits this wall before her ability power scaling takes off, making it hard to keep pace with enemies. We’re giving her a little help while she fills out her inventory. Unquote.png
  • VoracityS5.png Passive - Voracity
    • WTF NUMBERS: Daggers deal slightly more damage at all levels, scaling faster early but more slowly later (damage at levels 1 and 18 are roughly unchanged). The damage difference peaks at level 10 (+10 damage).
    • DAGGER DAMAGE (LEVELS 1 - 6): 75/78/83/88/95/103 ⇒ 75/80/87/94/102/111

    • DAGGER DAMAGE (LEVELS 13 - 18): 189/206/224/243/264/285 ⇒ 198/214/231/248/267/287
  • Bugfixes
    • Katarina’s R - Death Lotus icon no longer lights up while dead when enemies walk near her corpse
    • If Katarina catches a W - Preparation dagger at the end of E - Shunpo’s cast time, the Preparation dagger’s damage no longer follows her to Shunpo’s location
    • If Katarina E - Shunpo’s to an ally or a dagger, Shunpo’s damage now properly transfers to the nearest minion or jungle monster if no enemy champions are in range

Patch Notes 6.23

Stop walking away from your target, Katarina.
  • ShunpoS5.png E - Shunpo
    • SILKY SMOOTH: Movement commands are canceled if Shunpo targets a plant or enemy champion
  • Bugfix
    • Warring Kingdom Katarina’s visual effects have been adjusted to re-add some of the flair lost in her pre-season update

Patch Notes 6.22

Quote.png Kat’s truly the embodiment of the phrase ‘feast or famine’; crushing entire fights in a second of button mashing, or throwing limp daggers in a poor attempt to contribute from behind. This has led to a pretty tight leash for Kat’s balance - while you can succeed on her, we’ve had to fine tune every part of her laning to ensure she can’t reliably hit her penta-killing critical mass every game.

This update seeks to remove Kat’s harsh restrictions while also delivering on her lightning-speed high-skill fantasy. Armed with her new Dagger mechanic, Kat’s got the flexibility to orchestrate flashy fights (or smooth getaways) in a way that both she and her opponents can engage with. This lets us ease up on a lot of the base-stat restrictions needed to artificially keep her down, given that Katarina’s opponents always have a clue as to when and how she might move in for the kill.

As a result of the changes, it’s important to talk about one key line below: Katarina can no longer target wards with Shunpo. It’s not a decision that was taken lightly, but a large part of Kat’s update is centred around telegraphing her potential mobility to assailants. Ward-hopping breaks this at a fundamental level - giving her far too many easy outs in tense situations. Kat’s all about finding the right mix of premeditation and reaction in her playmaking, so you’ll have to think on your feet and use all of your tools to survive. Unquote.png

Patch Notes 6.4

Q damage no longer falls off. Detonation ratio up.
Quote.png We know Katarina buffs make everyone worried, but the Sinister Blade's felt pretty dull compared to her assassin peers for the better part of a season. Kat's success cases are defined by her ability to roam, but the arms-race of waveclear she's up against in midlane makes it hard to find the right moments. We're upping Kat's agency when it comes to creating favorable situations - whether through shoving to set up a sneaky side-lane gank, or just killing her opponent outright. Unquote.png
  • Bouncing Blades.png Q - Bouncing Blades
    • DETONATION RATIO: 0.15 ability power ⇒ 0.2 ability power
    • REMOVED DEADLY STEEL: Damage is no longer reduced on targets beyond the first

Patch Notes 5.15

  • Restored custom E - Shunpo VFX for Sandstorm and Slay Belle Katarina

Patch Notes 5.11
E's early damage ratio lowered. "We'll keep this one short: Katarina's Shunpo is essential to help her get around and chain multi-kills once she's Death Lotus'd up a storm, but the base and ratio were contributing far more to her midgame burst than what's intended from a flexible mobility spell. Lowering it makes her work harder and be more cautious with when to enter a fight if she wants to make it out alive."

  • Shunpo.png E - Shunpo
    • BASE DAMAGE: 60/85/110/135/160 ⇒ 40/70/100/130/160
    • RATIO: (0.4 ABILITY POWER) (0.25 ABILITY POWER)

Patch Notes 5.6
Base Health and regen down. Health per level up. "For one of the heaviest snowball champions in league, Katarina's lane-bully potential is enabled by having the base-stats to win wars of attrition with enemy mids, whittling them down for the kill. We're pulling back on that to give her opponents a better window of vulnerability to exploit."

  • General
    • HEALTH PER LEVEL: 80 ⇒ 83
    • BASE HEALTH: 560 ⇒ 510
    • BASE HEALTH REGEN: 7.7 ⇒ 4.5

Patch Notes 5.4
Katarina now needs to deal damage to an opposing champion within 3 seconds of them dying in order to Get The Reset. "The deadliest Pentakill on two legs (and not even in the band!), Katarina's a volatile and competitive option for those looking to shut out their solo queue competition. Voracity's long duration means that nobody's ever allowed to reenter the fight with low health, as they're always at risk of setting off an avalanche of daggers and shunpos - even if Kat's across the battlefield. This change is to focus Katarina's rewards on the fights she's intimately involved in, similar to Jinx."

  • Voracity.png Passive - Voracity
    • VORACIOUS REDUCTION: Scoring a kill or assist will reduce the cooldown of Katarina's abilities ⇒ Whenever an enemy champion dies within 3 seconds of Katarina dealing damage to them, her cooldowns will be reduced by 15 seconds

Patch Notes 4.20
Death Lotus has a higher cooldown and lower damage at ranks 1 and 2, but normalizes back its old values at rank 3. "Katarina's been on a tear recently, rising to near-permanent-ban status across various regions. With shifts in the game landscape alongside various preseason changes (chief among them the lowered regeneration across the board), Katarina may very well be one of the strongest beneficiaries post 4.20. We're keeping an eye on her but, in the meantime, taking some of the Death out of Death Lotus to make sure Kat doesn't Shunpo her way to a top spot."

  • DeathLotus.png R - Death Lotus
    • COOLDOWN: 60 / 52.5 / 45 seconds ⇒ 90 / 60 / 45 seconds
    • MAGIC DAMAGE: 400 / 575 / 750 ⇒ 350 / 550 / 750

Patch Notes 3.12
Summary: Death Lotus now deals more damage at later levels, and has been kicked up a notch overall with higher AP and AD ratios. We've increased the channel time of Death Lotus and removed its cast time delay, meaning Katarina's overall damage should remain roughly the same (if not higher) even if interrupted. The slightly reduced cooldown on Death Lotus means that at rank three it will take exactly three kills or assists to reset her ultimate. Context: We wanted to re-focus more power and gameplay into Katarina's Death Lotus by increasing its high-threat damage. Ultimately, we think Katarina is more fun and unique when both she and her opponents are focused on executing or stopping Death Lotus. While the increased channel duration might seem like a nerf if interrupted early (since the ability deals damage over time), we removed the cast time delay to accommodate.

  • Death Lotus
    • No longer has a cast time delay before channeling (previously had a 0.25 second delay)
