Presence of Mind,
Legend: Bloodline and
Coup de Grace.
Presence of Mind helps Caitlyn with the mana problems by restoring missing mana, if a champion is killed.
Legend: Bloodline gives life steal, which aids in winning damage trades and fights in the later stages of the match. Caitlyn deals with
Coup de Grace more damage to targets with low health.
