Katarina is a champion in League of Legends.[1]

Abilities

Edit

Voracity

Katarina Voracity.png

Innate: Scoring a Damage rating.png takedown against an enemy champion within 3 seconds of damaging them reduces the current Cooldown reduction icon.png cooldowns of Katarina's abilities by 15 seconds.

Katarina Sinister Steel.png

Innate - Sinister Steel: Whenever Katarina retrieves a Dagger, she uses it to slash around herself, dealing 68 − 240 (based on level) (+ 75% bonus AD) (+ 55 / 66 / 77 / 88% (based on level) AP) magic damage to nearby enemies and applying On-hit icon.png on-hit effects at 100% effectiveness to enemy Champion icon.png champions hit, as well as reducing Shunpo's Shunpo's total Cooldown reduction icon.png cooldown by 78 / 84 / 90 / 96% (based on level).

Daggers will disappear after being on the ground for 4 seconds.

Info
  • Voracity's cooldown reduction will still take effect even after Katarina dies.
  • The Dagger's area of effect indicator is displayed even before it lands, although Katarina may not slash until it has. This can be targeted by Shunpo Shunpo.
  • Daggers will still deal damage but not apply on-hit effects if Jax Counter Strike.png dodged. They cannot be Shen Spirit's Refuge.png blocked nor can they be missed while Katarina is Blind icon.png blinded.
  • Single-use on-hit effects, such as Sheen item.png Spellblade, will apply to the closest target to Katarina when she uses a Dagger.

Edit

Bouncing Blade

Katarina Bouncing Blade.png

Active: Katarina throws a Dagger at the target enemy that upon arrival bounces to another nearby enemy up to 2 times, dealing magic damage to each.

Magic Damage:
75 / 105 / 135 / 165 / 195 (+ 30% AP)

The Dagger then lands onto the ground after 1 second, roughly 350 units opposite from where it struck its first target.

The Dagger bounces to targets regardless of having Sight icon.png sight of them or not.

Info
  • Bouncing Blade will not be destroyed in-flight if the target dies before reaching them but it will on Shaco Command- Hallucinate.png clones that expire.
  • If the Dagger's intended landing position is inside terrain it will instead land at the closest spot that isn't inside terrain.

Edit

Preparation

Katarina Preparation.png

Active: Katarina tosses a Dagger into the air above her current location and gains Movement speed icon.png bonus movement speed that decays until it lands after 1.25 seconds as well as Ghost.png ghosting for the same duration.

Bonus Movement speed:
50 / 60 / 70 / 80 / 90%

Info
  • No additional details.

Edit

Shunpo

Katarina Shunpo.png

Active: Katarina Flash.png blinks to the target location around the target unit or Dagger, dealing magic damage to the nearest enemy in range and applying On-hit icon.png on-hit effects at 100% effectiveness.

Magic Damage:
15 / 30 / 45 / 60 / 75 (+ 50% AD) (+ 25% AP)

Shunpo Fiora Bladework.png resets Katarina's basic attack timer.

Upon blinking, Katarina remains unable to act via a cast time for 0.15 seconds.

Info
  • Shunpo can be used on any unit except structures and Ward icon.png wards.
  • Shunpo can be cast on Daggers that haven't landed yet.
  • If Katarina Shunpo's on an ally, any attack command she is given during its cast time will be negated, and every movement command will be delayed by 1 second (starting at the start of the cast time).
  • Shunpo should be an instant ability but it has extra logic to consider which makes it have a short cast time before blinking.
  • Flash Flash can be used during cast time but it will not cancel the blink.
  • If the target is very close to a wall and Katarina targets Shunpo behind the target, she can blink over the wall.
  • Shunpo will still deal damage but not apply on-hit effects if Jax Counter Strike.png dodged. It cannot be Shen Spirit's Refuge.png blocked nor can it be missed while Katarina is Blind icon.png blinded.
  • Shunpo does not require the enemy to be within targeting range to damage them. It only requires them to be within the max range around a unit that Shunpo allows them to blink to.

    Death Lotus

    Katarina Death Lotus.png

    Active: Katarina Channeling icon.png channels for up to 2.5 seconds, rapidly spinning in place to throw a dagger every 0.166 seconds to up to 3 of the closest nearby enemy Champion icon.png champions, Sight icon.png revealing herself in the process. Each dagger deals physical damage and magic damage, applies Lulu Pix, Faerie Companion.png on-attack and On-hit icon.png on-hit (without applying Life steal icon.png life steal) effects, and inflicts 60% Grievous Wounds icon.png Grievous Wounds on the target for 3 seconds.

    Physical Damage Per Dagger:
    16% (+ 12.8% per 1.0 total attack speed) bonus AD
    Maximum Single-Target Physical Damage:
    240% (+ 192% per 1.0 total attack speed) bonus AD
    Magic Damage Per Dagger:
    25 / 37.5 / 50 (+ 19% AP)
    Maximum Single-Target Magic Damage:
    375 / 562.5 / 750 (+ 285% AP)
    On-Attack/On-Hit Effectiveness:
    25 / 30 / 35%

    An enemy champion within Range center.png 500 units is required to cast this ability, and targets do not have to be Sight icon.png visible to be thrown at.

    Info
    • An alternate way of writing the formula for the bonus AD ratio is 16%  ×  (1 + 0.8 total attack speed) bonus AD.
      • At level 6, Katarina has a minimum of 0.729 attack speed (bar potential reduction from Cripple icon.png attack speed slows).
        • The minimum physical damage per dagger is 25.33% bonus AD.
    • In addition to already revealing herself, Katarina will Sight icon.png reveal her location (450 radius) for 4.5 seconds every time she throws a dagger at an enemy while the enemy team does not otherwise have vision of her.(bug)
      • Because of this, the vision on Katarina's location will persist for up-to 4.5 seconds after the channel ends.
    • Death Lotus will not end if no enemies remain in range.
    • Sivir Spell Shield.png Spell shield will block and be consumed by only one dagger.
    • Each dagger counts as a separate hit for effects such as Conqueror Conqueror, Electrocute Electrocute, and Eclipse's Eclipse's Ever Rising Moon.
