Review, runes and strategy

Katarina (Wind Valkyrja) is a good fusionable attack monster in Summoners War, she is viable in pvp offense when used with a invincible state buffer such as Chloe or Qebehsenuef.

This is because when in invincible state, Katarina's third skill ignores defense giving her the potential to oneshot some targets up to mid-high level arena tier.

In Guild Wars and Arena Offense she works as a pure-nuker, teamed up with an invincibility buffer unit (or two) and an attack buffer she can easy wipe out the tankiest defense. Nevertheless katarina remains not 100% reliable and pretty random, for example if the AI decide to target the same unit 3 times you may lose the match and this is the main reason why you can find her more reliable in Guild War Offense where the enemies are only 3.

One of the best (but not one of the most common) team in GWO is Katarina Chlow Jamire, where thanks to the cooldown reset capabilities of Jamire you can rely on katarina third skill with invincibility times 2 turns in a row!

You can obtain her by fusing Baretta, Arang, Shakan and Mikene in the Fusion Hexagram, however Katarina is mainly used for pvp purpose both Arena and Guild Wars, so invest on her only if you do a lot of pvp! (we know there's a video featuring her in a R5 speed team, but trust us they have godly runes)

I have no words to describe how powerful this unit can be. You don´t need to build her with Rage, a simple Fatal/Blade %ATK/CrDam/%ATK set can turn Katarina into a godess of death. Since Qebeshenuef is fusionable too, there´s no reason not to use Kathy (as I like to call her) as your main wind nuker, cause she´s much more deadly than Lushen (Im my oppinion, Lushen is a great monster, but only better than Katarina in farming tasks). When properly buffed (Bernard (L) + Qebe) Kathy can do huge amounts of damage and if you can get enough speed on her (mine is at 177) you can blast half of the enemy team (or even more) before they move. I know that the third skill aims random, but believe me... if you could aim that skill Kathy would be the most deadly unit in the whole game XD. Do not regret to fuse, build and try her, cause I´m playing Guild wars at Guardian 1/2 rank and I use her in almost every battle. Kathy is nuke, Kathy is love. All hail Katarina :)

She is one of the best mid-late game affordable (since she is fusable) units in the game. Personally, I use her with Chloe in guild battles and sometimes arena offense, but I'm gonna try her paired with Qebeshenuef. I agree with Kain, she is really good even with Fatal rune set ( %ATK/%Crit DMG/%ATK) with speed substats.

She is fantastic in the arena. In fact, I have two of them teamed with chloe. My chloe is super fast and the Katarinas are fast too. She makes them invulnerable then they attack 3 times each. Each attack does between 8k and 15k. Yes it is random who gets hit but I almost always kill two of the opponents in the first salvo. One draw back is I have to avoid groups that can eliminate beneficial effects. They will take away the invulnerability.

She is good, I've fought an enemy Katarina and the invincibility buff of Chloe make her very hard to kill and my team lose pretty quick, I'm planning to get her by fusion and rune her Vampire Revenge with a lot of critical damage and speed.

Stop recommending Vampire runes for every monster. She has a self heal on her second ability already, and he nuking potential comes from being invincible, which will keep her from taking damage anyways (generally speaking). Build her Fatal or Rage with any 2 set.

I hear a lot of folks say Kat is not worth fusing... Typically, ppl who think a mon is trash either don't have it runed correctly, aren't using it in the right place or both. Katarina is a beast. Even if NOT paired with an immunity buffer (like Chloe or my personal favorite, Neal) she can own the other team in PVP. Her 2nd skill GIVES her invincibility if she kills an enemy- so, aim for a critter on the ropes and you've just set up skill 3 to drop a great deal of damage on your enemies. Skill 1 immediately fires skill 2 (see where I'm going with this?). So, if you plan it right: she can drop an enemy with S1, drop a 2nd with S2 and wipe the rest of the team with S3. It's not as hard to pull off as it sounds. She shines on Fatal/Blade but destroys enemies on Rage/Blade. Her combo even works in dungeons- but for maximum usage make her friends with Chloe, Neal or Qebehsenuef (what were they thinking with this name?). If you don't have any of these (Q is fusable for crying out loud) she can still shine on your team if you let an AOE nuker go before her and have her use S2 on a wounded enemy. BAM= invincibility. Swing away Merrel.

Kathy is a real beast and 100% worth fusing. The only problem with her is the "randomness" of the attacks (S2 activated after a kill with S1 is random, S3 is random always...) but as I´ve said before, she will probably be the most powerfull attacker in the game if you could aim all her hits. Otherwise, I agree with all your statements except for my favourite companion for Kathy, wich is Qebe and not Neal (matter of likes I suppose).

Hi, ive just fused Katarina (not 6*yet) but i wondering of how i will pair her. 

The question is : Qebehsenuef, Chloé or Neal ? Neal is waiting in my storage (still 3* and not awaken), chloé is quite easy to get and Qebeh needs to be fused... Im wondering is Qebehsenuef worth to be fused or if Neal will do the job and if i choose the laziest option building Neal, does  the combo with Kat would be as efficient as Qeb + Kat ?

I know you said that katarina's teamate is a matter of feelings and personnal opinion but actually i don't know any of them. So in your opinion which one is worth being build ?

Ps : sorry for my english, i m French ^^

Qebehsenuef without doubt. It´s not only Invincibility, it´s also ATK and CrRate buffs wich will drastically improve the damage output. Qebe was made to buff Katarina and Lushen, he only has to be 1 point speed faster and if possible on will runes.
My 3 monsters team is Bernard (Leader) + Qebehsenuef + Katarina. Add Lushen if it´s for 4-monsters Arena. As long as you can shot faster than the enemy and there´s no nasty water tank ahead, its a 100% win.
Also the Bernard Qebe Kat is a good counter for the annoying Theomars Chasun Hwadam GW defense. As long as Kat don´t shoot twice on Theo, it´s a sure win too.

I just fusioned her and put rage/nemesis, still 5* and not awakened. She does, with attk buff/invencibility state and critical hit, like 9k-11k with third skill per hit. She is awesome, paired with megan and jeanne. I guess i'm in love
