@-Alex-, haunting guise is for characters with high base damage and low stacking, which is not kat's case, she doesn't benefit from mpen as much as she would from a needlessly.About the q over w, q is better if you know how to farm...it is better at poking, gives more burst and you can farm caster minions better.Also, kat does need farm and high damage in little time(burst), and q achieves them both.It provides the same clearing potential at level 7 and you can farm well before it.Q provide more reliable burst with its mark, 75 more damage than w at lv 9.If you wait 4 seconds to cast w again, your enemy would have killed you by then...

Liandry's: Haunting Guise is great. Useful stats at a fair price. Torment costs too much gold and doesn't give kat enough relevant stats (namely you're spending a lot to get a DOT passive when kat wants to be bursty to trigger her passive ASAP)
Rylai's: Again, you're spending a lot of gold to get stats that don't contribute to fast kills: a slow (which kat doesn't need, being mobile and bursty) and a lot of health (useful, but not worth 1000+ gp) you could build a deathcap instead of rylais for not much gold difference.
Q over W: the thing is, making W makes it really really easy to farm because it doesn't deal reduced AOE and it has a much shorter cooldown. Kat needs farm, and she needs high damage in as little time as possible. W achieves both of these better than Q does.

1st-don't get liandry's, it's passive is for sustained damage champions, not bursty ones.The hp doesn't help her at all.
2nd-don't get rylai's, you don't need a slow, you need more damage, don't try to supply katarina's low utility, her utility is damage.You don't want to kite the enemy, you want to burst them down.The hp is pretty useless, it won't stop you from being bursted.Better get more dmg.
3rd-max q first, it brings you bigger burst, safer farming and safer harrasssing, people with a decent reaction time will just damge you before you have the chance of casting W.
