Do Katarina's abilities do physical or magical damage?

Physical damage is reduced by armor, while magical damage is reduced by magic resistance.

  • Gah. Please rephrase the question a bit. I don't quite understand Aug 9, 2010 at 4:42
  • He wants to know if Katarina's abilities do physical or magical damage. Physical damage is reduced by armor, while magical damage is reduced by magic resistance.

    @Mechko he's using jargon. Most LoL players should be able to parse it.

Katarina's abilities break down as follows:

  • (Q) Bouncing Blade - Magic (Both initial hit and the damage from consumed mark)
  • (W) Sinister Steel - Magic
  • (E) Shunpo - Magic
  • (R) Death Lotus - Magic

All are magic damage. Do not confuse this with the fact that some abilities scale off AD and AP

  • Thanks! It is as I imagined.. so it justifies the importance of sorcerer`s shoes for the magic penetration.

  • where do you find these information? I think RIOT should somehow provide these info. I often find myself stuck while choosing armor late game

  • @nimcap google? I found it across a couple sources as no one source gave me all the information.

  • I tried googling lots of times, I never found a source that contains all of the skills and their types. I wish RIOT added that information in game.

  • @nimcap when you pick a character the tooltip says what kind of damage the skills do. i mean ingame, not while chosing
