Katarina remake announced

Aug 10, 2012 16:13

ImageRiot have been putting numerous champions through remakes lately - now it's Katarina's turn. If you wanna get an overview of what abilities have been changed and if there's even more about her you can look forward to, keep on reading.

After finishing their recent changes on champions like Evelynn and Twitch Riot continue their remake spree. Apparently they have noticed that violence alone won't solve Katarina's problems in the very early game and in team fights. That's why they are now dedicating their time and ideas into a remake of the champion.

Katarina's New Abilities

Voracity (Passive): Champion kills or assists reduce Death Lotus' cooldown and refresh your basic abilities.

Bouncing Blades: Katarina throws a dagger that bounces from enemy to enemy, dealing magic damage and marking them. Striking a marked target with an ability or basic attack will consume the mark to deal additional magic damage.

Sinister Steel: Katarina whirls her daggers around her, dealing magic damage to all enemies in the area. If she hits an enemy champion, Katarina gains Movement Speed for a short duration.

Shunpo: Katarina instantly moves to her target's location and takes reduced damage from enemies for a short duration. If the target is an enemy, she deals damage.

Death Lotus (Ultimate): Katarina becomes a flurry of blades, throwing daggers with unrivaled speed at up to three nearby champions. Daggers deal magic damage and reduce incoming healing on targets hit.


Do these changes please you? It gets better. The ability remake will be brought to the League together with a complete model remake. Like this, there's a very high possibility that in the near future both your kill ratio and your viewing pleasure will increase a lot when you summon the redhead.

What do you think about these changes? Do you consider them necessary or do you think that they are unneeded? Will you now be more likely to summon Katarina or will you stick to more "classic" picks for your lanes? Feel free to discuss in the comment section below.
