After some time, I find that I want to be feared a bit more and to have more burst damage than constant damage. I am looking into Katarina. I was wondering what you think about the "role" of Katarina, compared to Tristana. As Tristana I can solo mid fairly well against anyone or lane. When midding I usually go top or bottom to gank or tower dive someone with low HP.
Please Elementz, do you think my damage potential with Katarina is as high or just as high as Tristana? What kind of different roles would Katarina be compared to Tristana? IE: Are they both ranged DPS? Or is Katarina a "sort of" hybrid DPS? You seem to have put Tristana a bit over Katarina on the tier list. My last question is, what is the viability of these two champions in high ELo on SR and especially TT? You seem to have taken them off the TT list in general. =[
Thanks again Elementz! I'll be waiting for your reply!
Kat is probably stronger in lane currently than Trist currently but not by much tbh. Trist is a crazy solo carry still. Kat probably ganks a bit better then Trist does too. I feel that Trist is most likely a stronger carry overall as Kat only has to have 1 well timed stun vs her and she's effectively countered. No doubt Kat has more burst than Trist but the Trist does have some great single target burst as well.
So overall it comes down to preference really. If your a middle of the pack pick and they don't got any CC yet on the other team Kat is a solid choice.
As for using them on TT I wouldn't really advise it. Ranged carries tend to stink on that map and Melee carries shine much harder with 1 caster support.
