"Tower hug"

Was the advice my teammates gave me as they went to forest and have sexy time in the other lane. Now I sincerely doubt this is good advice, next method please?

Don't die to her, and try to force her away from creeps.

If she's denied farm, she's a wuss.

Tower hug, get a better lane partner, don't let her kill you early....what else can you do hmmmm.....make them rage by spell shielding that stupid dagger throw spell.

Name a melee character with spell shield.

There isn't much at all. Literally. As a melee - you can't force her out of the lane. She'll throw daggers to harass then jump on you as soon as she can. If you tower hug she'll out farm. I can't find a way to counter her effectively as melee at all, tbh.



IMO.

An incredible counter to Kat mid is Janna. Just throwing that out there.

EDIT: Oh sorry if we're talking exclusively melee, then a lot of it is about mindset. A fun way to mess with her is that whenever she shunpos to you, pop all your stuff and hit her back. If you really want to get this done, stack a lot of crit chance runes. Then at some point during one of your encounters, you're gonna turn around and hit her really really hard. Then she's gonna be afraid to do it again.

If every time she harasses, you run away, she's gonna know she can annoy you and get away with it. If you punish her a couple times, she's not gonna feel as comfortable clicking on you with E anymore.

That's like saying Chocolate is Delicious. Janna is an incredible counter to most everything.
