Katarina works much better on AP or AD?

AD is a lot better at farming and probably in general.
AP can very strong but they are a bit more dependent on ganking to get gold as their BB isnt as good for farming.

You can also go a tanky AD build as well.

Personally I play AD.

Well a lot of her abilities make excellent use of AP. The moral is, as long as you build something she WILL hurt.

I prefer best to build mostly AP and take in a tiny bit of +Damage to round things up. I gotta admit, I dont play Katarina much though.

AP katarina is good and can put out alot of damage also she gets CD reduction way more easly in her items. but I find AD to have a slight edge when pushing because she can farm faster and has higher damage output against turrets. so just choose depending on your team I guess.

I have found genraly that AP Kat's do better in the games i have played. But it is down to personal prefrance. What one do you enjoy more?

These two quotes sum it up pretty much.

Hybrid.

I always start off by getting a Brut for that little bit of armor pen you do use when you attack someone and then I focus on **** like Rylai's, a BF sword, then probably try to build a Gunblade. Because well.. Gunblade is awesome.

Until you realise that her ultimate (her main source of damage) does the damage on either 55% AD or 30% AP (whichever is higher (numbers may be off)).

Whatever you do don't build both AP and AD together.
Personally I got wrecked by a kat that rushed 2 sunfires and then stacked Blood Thirsters on my smurf yesterday.

Hard for me to decide. AD scales with BB which is a really good nuke and farming ability, but AP has better itemization overall with stuff like Rylai's, Haunting Guise, and Void Staff.
