Ive had Caitlyn for quite a while now but I just don't know how to build her. Ive tried many builds but none of them are to my liking. Many have told me to rush IE but im not sure if its such a good idea. Any advice on that?

Also Ive been thinking of an item build and it goes like this :
Manamune
Beserkes Greaves
Phantom Dancer
Blood Thirster (or Frozen Mallet)
Which ever I didnt pick above
Then IE or Black cleaver

Is this build viable for Caitlyn? And should I switch the order around a bit?

Your close, almost exactly on my build first off and most important 21/7/2 mastery 3 points in strength of spirit with manamune you'll gain 50 hp per 5 so you can delay lifesteal.
Ghost and Flash summoner (exhaust is okay but flash is better) like ezreal you DON'T want them to get ahold of you so net and flash escapes are great.

Manamune
MERC Treads( you need MR to do well and reduced CC effects> AS)
Zeal+ dagger
Vamp Scepter
Phage or finish Thirster (Thirster usually way more important)
Frozen mallet
Phantom dancer
Another phantom dancer
Sell boots and get force of Nature (more Move Speed)
That build has gotten me several 25-3 scores.


Vs Heavy physical teams
Manamune
Chainmail
Start Warmog's
Finish atma's then warmogs
Merc tread
2 PD
Or 1 PD and Banshee
Or 2 PD and FoN
Or PD and bloodthirster/executioner

Seems like a lot of AS... The build still does good damage even if theres a bit less AD?

never underestimate AS. One of my favorite champions is Kog'maw and he basicly stacks AS all game. More to the point with AS headshot will trigger faster and make up (somewhat) for having less AD.

What's better shooting 4 times for 300 or 7 for 250 with a 60+%crit chance? Its mainly for mobility midgame to get those kills that would have gotten away, or to be the one who got away. The AS and crit are an awesome bonus.

I usually grab double Dorans blades then w/e boots followed by Black cleaver and brutalizer. This is easily achievable fast with her great farming. After these it depends on how the game is going but other good items are Frozen Mallet and IE.

Ive heard of stacking Dorans early game but doesn't that just slow down the build? I mean your pretty much waisting money instead of buying something worth while end game...

only stack dorans if you are having trouble in your lane.
