The Best Runes, Items, and Advice to Dominate Your Competition
We set our Caitlyn build recommendations by analyzing 286,008 recently ranked League games with her selected. We only advise the best winrate Caitlyn builds that have been used by ranked League players enough times for us to suggest them. With so many games in our dataset, we are very confident in our provided builds.
If you would like more focused build guidance and advice, you should take a look at our guide at the bottom of the page. Additionally, Caitlyn builds specific to a unique skill rank can be viewed by picking a different rank from the dropdown menu located above. The recommended Caitlyn build will be focused on that tier’s meta.
Best Caitlyn Runes
If you are playing a mixed enemy team composition, you should really consider grabbing her the Fleet Footwork, Presence of Mind, Legend: Bloodline, Coup de Grace, Bone Plating, and Overgrowth runes. In recent matches, she won the largest percentage of her rounds when using these runes. Yet, if you are facing a more single focused enemy team comp, such as an AD focused or a crowd control centric team, you should instead browse down and to the right to get the best Caitlyn runes to win your particular game.

Best Items for Your Caitlyn Build
The most critical items to incorporate into your Caitlyn build include: Galeforce, Infinity Edge, Phantom Dancer, and Stormrazor. Moreover, as with our rune advice, you can also get quality, dedicated, Caitlyn item builds below for the particular enemy team comp you are fighting in your current match. Players who included these pieces in their gear had a significantly better winrate than players who tried for other Caitlyn builds.
