How it works

  1. This is a pretty meta build that you have might seen on Summoner's Rift.
  2. You are going to be building damage items, going AD and Crit.
  3. You are going to play carry for your team.

How to play

  1. Caitlyn Crit build. Pretty meta. You go AD, Attack Speed and of course... Crit!
  2. Don't rush Infinity Edge. Usually go for it as #2 or #3 item.

Tips and Tricks

General
  1. Keep track of your Passive! It can be used for securing cannon minions, harass enemies or score kills.
  2. You can place your traps (W) in bushes for bush control.
Riot
  1. Make use of her Yordle Snap Traps by placing them pre-emptively to ensure that you'll have one off of cooldown during combat.
  2. Avoid using Ace in the Hole in large team melees as it might be blocked by the wrong target.
  3. Fire 90 Caliber Net away from the opponent to close the gap or hop over walls.
