Just by looking at the page that the main website has for Katarina, I'd say build her as a mage, mainly because of her high spells bar (which I have no idea what it means besides that she has strong spells), and that the recommended build has her taking mage items.

Remember that the recommended items aren't necessarily the best build, but a suggestion to make her effective. You may have to counter-build against certain enemies to try and take them (Tanks need this skill or else they're sunk), and have fun with her!

Shes a mage who does damage while stacking AD or AP.

I don't understand your question... Are you asking AD or AP? Are you asking use spells or autoattack? She's still a "mage" as everything does magic damage.

Some decent items on Kat include:
Abyssal Scepter
Hextech Gunblade
Rylai's Scepter (Not a fan)
Rabadon's Deathcap
etc.

Your skills scale better of it, Shunpo is boss for kill securing.

The higher ratios for AD are misleading. Consider this:
BFS - 50 AD - 1850
NLR - 80 AP - 1600

Most of items in game are as the above compound that + Existence of +30% AP item mod and,

Ap is the clear winner.

Pick up a sword of the occult if your roflstomping noobs, thats about the only time I
ll see kats pick up some AD.

1400ish gold- upwards of 100 AD if fed.

ad scales better with ulti, but ap itemization leads to being harder to kill and more utility(abyssal and rylais)

Hyrbid items give the most stats/money hands down. I'm dumbfounded as to why I don't see more rageblade katarinas.

Rageblade gives AS, which is not needed. Also, Q > W > E > R is 4 stacks.
