Either that or make them affected by AP.
The problem with Kat (Eve has a similar problem) is that her apilities have 2 separate sources - the blade is physical, the others work off AP. Problem here is that if you divide your items, you;re just bad at 2 things. Eve has the same thing with Q and E working off AP and ulti increasing AS, which is completely physical.
Basically, characters with split bonus systems are bad at two things if you do both, or you inevitably need to sacrifice one of those things, which makes you subpar to the other champions that have an uniform damage distribution.
