Riot Games has recently added a brand-new champion named Katarina in the League of Legends: Wild Rift 2.1a update. Katarina is a Noxian assassin who is played usually in the mid lane as she is an assassin who does magic damage. In addition to this, she also plays the role of support in Baron Lane, although the chances are rare. Katarina was teased with the announcement of Wild Rift’s Season 1 and is a deadly champion who deals with high damage and has amazing mobility.
