Best comps for Katarina



  • 4 Rogue
  • 3 Frejlord
  • 2 Zaun
  • 2 Deadeye

This is a quick level 8 reroll with excellent economics to level up all the champions with 2-3 cost while concentrating on Katarina.

This composition focuses on the rogue trait or more of assassins to eliminate the adversaries' backlines.

Best setup for this comp:

1. Katarina is the primary damage producer in this composition, and she possesses the Rogue trait, which will cause her to become an assassin if her health drops to 50%.

2. Lissandra is a great choice since she would shock opponents, giving the rogue members time to inflict the necessary damage.

3. Due to her ability to take a tonne of damage while stun-casting a huge number of opponents, Sejuani is now one of the finest tanks in TFT.

4. Because Urgot possesses both the zaun and deadeye qualities, he can do massive amounts of damage while taking far more punishment.

5. Zed, a rogue member, is capable of doing some decent damage.

6. Viego is the third rogue member you have.

7. Ekko is a crucial choice since he possesses both rogue and zaun qualities, healing himself and doing significant damage.

8. Ashe is a crucial choice because Lissandra, Sejuani, and Urgot share the frejlord and deadeye, respectively.



  • 6 Noxus
  • 3 Shurima
  • 2 Juggernaut
  • 2 Strategist

This is a typical level 8 reroll with solid economics to ensure that you level up your primary characters so you can win.

In order for the noxus members to endure adequate damage, Katarina and Azir serve as the key damage producers in this composition.

Best setup for this comp:

1. Azir, a Shurima who gains increased attack speed and healing and shares the strategist trait, which gives the frontline greater tankiness and the backline more damage, is one of the key damage dealers in the game.

2. Katarina is your second primary damage dealer since she possesses the noxus trait, which gives her extra stats that increase her resistance to damage and make her blades a deadly weapon.

3. Sion makes a fantastic front-line tank since he can take a ton of damage without dying, and if he does, he will just reappear and deliver more damage.

4. Darius is one of the best frontlines in TFT since he can take a lot of punishment while still doing more harm.

5. Nasus is a fantastic frontline player who shares the Juggernaut trait with Darius, making them both stronger tanks.

6. In order to gain time for the backlines to inflict the necessary damage, Kled will be bolstering the noxus trait and taking a lot of punishment.

7. Swain should be chosen since he can strengthen both the Strategist and the Noxus qualities.

8. Cassiopia is a fantastic choice for the backlines, particularly early on in the game when she can deliver a ton of damage from there.



  • 6 Slayer
  • 1 Darkin
  • 3 Noxus
  • 2 Rogue
  • 2 Juggernaut

This is a gradual level 8 reroll in an effort to level up every champion at a cost of 2-3, notably Katarina, who will be the major damage producer.

Given that the competition is centered around Katarina's role as a slayer, a slayer symbol is a must.

Best setup for this comp:

1. Katarina is the major damage producer because she possesses both the noxus and rogue qualities, but in order to maximize her potential, a slayer emblem is a need.

2. Due to her slayer characteristic, Gwen is an excellent source of damage and tankiness in the front lines.

3. Kled must be included because he possesses both noxus and slayer qualities.

4. Darius shares the juggernaut, which gives him additional tankiness, and the noxus, which raises his total stats, making him a formidable damage dealer and tank on the front lines.

5. Kayle will enhance the slayer attribute.

6. Attrox is your fifth slayer, juggernaut, and darkin member. He will be inflicting a lot of damage on the front lines while also healing and applying CC.

7. Zed is your second rogue and sixth slayer, which is a terrific choice for this lineup.
