Tips Against Katarina in Mid Lane Tips Provided by MOBAFire Guide Authors

Yannou-Ari says “Flash - Barrier - Flat HP. I like to go barrier against katarina because usually she won't expect it and if I can survive her burst without giving her the reset, it will screw up her fight! You easily get prio, be sure to not step onto her daggers and she will never kill you.”
awawa says “You need to mess up a lot to lose against her in lane. Your W hard counters her engage and cancels her R. Literally all her kit procs your passive. You lose only if you let her roam a lot and she gets fed off your teammates, then she will make your life miserable. SPAM PING WHEN SHE ROAMS OR FOLLOW. Dont let her play the game.”

MageSept says “Veigar doesn't want chaos (not very role play, indeed…)! Katarina will obliterate your botlane while you farm, then come back with a gold advantage and one shot you with little to no counterplay. If Katarina is popular, I highly recommend banning her depending on how strong Zed currently is. ”

ShokLoL says “Katarina is a weak laner outside of a couple key moments. Make sure you don’t stand on any daggers and respect her level 2 and level 6 all in. For the most part Katarina will just look to spam roam and cheese kills from other lanes so placing good wards and pinging missing or retreat pings on lanes to keep her from getting kills is really important. If you can ever lock her in lane or kill her you will be massively ahead. This is one of the rare melee matchups where you can opt into comet instead of phase rush (since she doesn't normally go doran's shield second wind).”

This is a matchup you can consider running electrocute ignite in as well. ”

You can consider playing tank azir in this matchup. ”

Soft Headpats says “As long as you pay attention to where her daggers are going to land, this lane can be fairly simple. The dagger from her Q will always land opposite of where she throws it from, so you can manipulate where it lands once you understand how it works. Forcing it to land towards the sides of the lane rather than in the path of where you're traveling is extremely important to stopping her extended trades. Early on, her E CD is pretty long even if she catches a dagger, so play patiently and make sure you land EQ if she jumps onto you. Good Kat players will often E onto you and cast W to place another dagger while juking with the MS boost to avoid your EQ, so be wary of this. AP Kat is very easy to deal with, but if she goes Conqueror the matchup gets exponentially more difficult. If she runs Conqueror and starts Doran's Blade or Long Sword, she'll look for extended trades with AAs (she gets adaptive AD without any AP items). She can be threatening with this setup since she can quickly stack Conqueror and stick onto you with her Shunpo (E) while resetting her AAs. A single extended trade can put you in kill range, or even kill you straight up depending on where you are in the lane. She'll likely buy Merc Treads and Wit's End with this setup so be prepared to get an early Cryptbloom.”

ShokLoL says “Katarina can snowball really easily so you need to play this matchup slow, don't step on daggers and make sure you hold your E defensively. Post 6 make sure she's pushed in and doesn't get windows to roam.”
