I've been wondering whats better Attack or AP kat.

For AP I usually go
Doran Shield
Haunting Guise
Sorcerer Boots
Rylai Scepter
Void Staff
Banshee Vail
Mejas (optional)

For Attack I go
Doran Blade
Sorcerer Boots
Sword of Occult
Blood Thirstier x2
Banshee Vail.

Whats better I need your opinion !!

From what I've heard, they're both pretty much the same with the exception that AD is a harder pusher. I'm not an expert on Kat though so don't quote me on that.

Oh ****, I want to change my vote.

I like AD Kat because it synergizes better with more survivability. But, choosing between the 2 builds you actually posted, AP Kat is better.

Glass cannon AD Kat might as well be Yi..... with a 2.6 second Highlander that roots you instead of giving mega speed..... 8(

Never get Doran's Blade on anyone, ever.
  • Rejuv bead+4-6 HP pots
  • Sword of the Occult
  • Boots
  • Phage/BFS, depending on your current situation
  • BFS again, you should get 2 before you get
  • Frozen Mallet or your first Bloodthirster, depends
  • At this point you should at least have a Phage for survivability, otherwise get Leviathan if you've been doing well for kills, but remember that Phage/FM have a good chasing passive
  • Second Bloodthirster
  • Infinity Edge

Banshee's Veil and etc are all situational and should be gotten based on current game status.

Also, take mid.

I run a 21/9/0 mastery build.

Doran's Blade is a fail, especially for Kat... Doran's Shield all the way

I don't get why to take HG, Sorc Boots and a Void Staff that early... Magic Pen can NOT go below 0, so it's useless, nobody stacks Magic Res so quickly.

AD is better than AP.

Sword of the occult is fail on kat. If you were getting stacks on it you were probably going to win anyway.

you're a fail. Katarina has a LOT of possibilities to get a kill/assist so it's easy to get stacks (and 5 stacks make SotO priceworth compared to B.F. Sword)

Don't get that many BTs. No survivability, once you die, you're ****ed

ya, id say neither in favor of tank kat... she does a much better job as a tank due to meh ratios, and helps u keep stacks up. Rylais is pretty great on her though.
