2) Shunpo's damage reduction with Killer Instincts was the only thing keeping her alive in teamfights.
3) Grievous wound has a lot of uses and now she can only do it with an ult. I'd take that over the damage mark, due to reason 1.
4) The passive is clearly nerfed. No gold, which she needs.

I don't know why Riot feels the need to nerf her. You rarely see Kat in high skill games because she is a close-ranged glass cannon. If anything she needs a buff. In her current "broken" state, failure to time her moves precisely will get her killed and potentially not deal much damage.
PLEASE stop nerfing everything!
Shunpo now naturally gives damage reduction, FYI.

She needs to deal more damage. I'm honestly sad to see she didn't get any real cc whatsoever . She was designed during an age where most champions didn't have it... Now she sucks in comparison because even high damage champs get cc [Ahri, Xin Zhao, etc. etc.]
