Anyway, as far as I know / have seen, Katarina since the remake is a champion that doesn't really have specific mechanics to learn. Learn that shunpo places you behind your ennemy, learn ranges and the casting time on your Q, learn to predict bounces.
Learn to hop to wards to escape, or shunpo to dodge skillshots. Try not to use this though, as it puts shunpo on cooldown and essentially gives an opponent who knows Kat well the chance to shut your laning down for the cooldown of shunpo. This is because your lasthitting is virtually all melee, your opponent is NOT stupid enough to push the lane when playing against you, and not having shunpo means you can't hit your opponent with W, nor can you proc your Q's mark, meaning you can't possibly trade with him.
I guess the most advanced thing you could try doing is looking at the effectiveness of QEWR vs EQWR depending on matchup. I guess mobile opponents might not let you use the first one due to Q's casting time.
