Katarina stands as one of the most powerful gankers in the game. With no mana she is able to use her abilities as long as they are off cooldown which makers her a potent ally and a powerful enemy.

Yet she is also one of the weakest champions in the game. She is unable to withstand any sort of crowd control and if focused she goes down hard. As you might imagine she summoners tend to focus on her first.

In this guide I'll discus a few key points that make playing The Damage Dealing Katarina fairly simple and intuitive.

Warmogs =(

Infinity edge? Black cleaver? No magic penetration? Starks? Last whisper?

Good lord, why?

There are a billion other better champion choices if you're going to go auto attack dps. If you're not going to go flat out AD + magic pen then there's really no point to playing Katarina.

I thought this thread was about a guild for beginners who enjoy dealing damage with Katarina. Instead it's just a crappy guide. What the heck!

Infinity Edge relies on crits, which means auto attacking, your lowest source of damage. Black cleaver reduces armor (through auto attacking, again), whereas most of your damage is magical. Starks is very bad for a Katarina to take (Attack Speed, Lifesteal, Armor Pen are YUCK for her). Last Whisper is bad for the same reasons.

You're trying to stack the wrong stats here. It's all about RAW DAMAGE and survivability for AD KAtarina. Crit is useless. Speed is useless. Armor Pen is useless.
