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.
