Disclamer:
This a temporary build that is intended for those that can(/could) only play kat effectivly, and still want to be some kind of presence in a game.

Skills:
shunpo>ult>bouncing blades>killer instinc

Item build:
Boots- 3x health potion
Mejai's soulstealer: You have to get this by lvl 6.
BoM
Rylai's Crystal Scepter: Start with giant's belt then build up
Zhonya's Ring
Any ap item

Summoner spells:
Flash and heal what worked for me best because you will have to preserve any stack you get on your mejai.
Flash is a must. Its a great getaway move, as you will be using your shunpo a lot.
Ignite instead of heal might also work after you practice a bit.


Runes:

I'm using furor's rune pages.
Dodge seals could be changed to cd runes if you afford it.


Laning
You will have to have a partner. You will not be able to mid, but i think no present kat build is able to do that.

If you cant lane with some1 who has slow/stun you might want to consider getting exhaust or simply leaving before the game starts. The second is the better choice.
Your best laning partners are: taric, cho, sion and amumu. Casters like ryze and annie can also work.

Strategyy
Well think of the kamikazee of ww2. You will kinda sorta play like that.
After you start building mejai's, be ultracarefull. Loosing stack hurts you much more than anything.
Also sunpo is your main damage dealer, use it on champs whenever possible.

Lvls 1-6: If you cant get 2 assists or a kill you can surrender now. You wont be able to get mejai's in time. You will have to sunpo/blade champions at any given chance. Disregard minions, hopefully your laning partner can do that part. If you picked heal, dont be afraid to turret dive low health champs (sunpo+bb=death)

Lvl6-11: Try to stay in your lane, but if a low health hero (squishy, below 25%) needs a gank dont hesitate. Your BoM should give you enuf speed for running between lanes.
In team fights never initiate. ONLY USE YOUR ULT IF MOST OF THE OTHER TEAM IS DISABLED, OTHERWISE YOU WILL GET RAPED BY THE TIME IT STARTS TICKING.

Lvl11+: If you played right you should have atleast 10 stacks on mejai and a couple of ap items. This could mean that your ult is actually usefull now, but not quite. You need a stunner the whole game if you want to score kills with your ult.

You can insert any other champ just about and get better results. Even if you do this if the other team is smart they will still save a stun for you or focus you. A rylai's will not give you the survival you need. You will die and stacks will fall.

Stop playing Kat. She was nerfed into uselessness for no reason since Riot listens to noobs and ******ed *****ing whiners with blue names.

Your build, as many others, is missing the most important part: Magic Penetration
You need it both on item and runes. You also need the Archaic Knowledge masterie for Mpen.

Katarina's damage where too high when builded right. Now they are still decent, but you can't have decent results without the Mpen.

Im using furor's runepage & masteries which is higly focused on mp.
This huide is intended for only kat players. No one who can play other chars should play kat in her current state imo.
