Summoner Spells Back to Top

11.png being Jungle no explanation in that.

4.png for secondary spell ALWAYS.
1.Most of the time defile.png with 4.png can get you a kill. 
2.4.png wallofpain.png can help you get a successful gank.

3.Escapes

4.defile.png 4.png 3157.png. I mean come on a common combo even as a mid Karthus





New Runes Back to Top

Masteries Back to Top

This Karthus Jungle build emphasizes on the cool-down of the ultimate karthuspassive.png.

With the intelligence we can hit up to 45% cool-down reduction. 

Sorcery for the obvious reason karthus is ap. 
Feast for surviving in jungle.

-I tried taking 12/18/0
Without the tough skin, you cannot last in the jungle. Usually you need to kill the Blue with close to 50health and without tough skin you usually die at the buff. Then you get the 4 man report.

Qlaywaste.png is you main damage output in clearing out jungle camps.

laywaste.png Does Extra damage when cast on single target. Make sure to position the laywaste.png.


defile.png is not necessary but it does help you kill out the smaller adds and cast laywaste.png without caring about its positioning. 

You are not going to gank any lane until you finish the jungle route and once you finish the route you will hit exactly 4 thus you take wallofpain.png for ganking.
 

fallenone.png USE IT AS FREQUENTLY AS POSSIBLE. AFTER HITTING 6 TRY TO TIME IT FOR AN ASSIST. THE GLOBAL DAMAGE WILL ACT AS A 'GANK' TO ALL LANES.

Items Back to Top

Starting Items

    You need the get the hunter's potion to survive the jungle and gank lanes
    After your first b to base

Core Items

    Get it when you think you need speed to gank or the opponent jungle keep poking his damn head into your jungle.

Situational Items

You won't be running from fights and all so boots are neglected in the end. This core items will build you 45%cooldown and immense amount of ap. 3165.png(20%) + 3157.png(10%) + 3092.png(10%) + 5% from masteries.


Archangel is only needed when you are the grouping with the team type as it gives you a shield after hitting 750 in tear.

Athenes3174.png is when the opponent team has more than 3ap damage champs that does damage. 
One enemy setup you have to rush Athenes is 
Mid - 7.png /55.png /103.png / 105.png Very mobile mid champs
Jungle - 245.png / 9.png / 60.png / 76.pngImmense damage early game when they counter jungle
Support - 43.png(You need atleast 3028.png or forget about ganking bottom) /1.png /37.png These guys actually hurt a lot for a support

Top usually dont matter as your team top laner should have cc and tank the damage. But incase your top is not human and you are fighting an opponent 13.png / 245.png 


ON YOU SECOND TIME BACK TO BASE AFTER A NICE STROLL THROUGH THE JUNGLE CAMPS. 

3108.png TO INCREASE COOL DOWN REDUCTION. 1001.png IS COMPLETELY OPTIONAL. I usually do not get it until I think I really really need it.

Always complete 3165.png first as it gives 20% Cool Down Reduction. Good to have 1004.png one of it to help in mana regen if your mid laner needs it.
After this is completely personal.

If you have lots of kills rushing more damage with 3089.png might be good.
or if you are going to split like there is not tomorrow while aiding with fallenone.png then 3092.png might help you keep an eye out for incoming gank. 

If you are going to focus on teamfights then 3157.png is the answer. 
3285.png and 3135.png are real end game items and usually the game ends before i get void staff. 


The usual build for me is 
3165.png-->3108.png-->3098.png-->3020.png-->3092.png-->3089.png-->3285.png-->3157.png-->sell 3020.png
(You can finish the jungle item whenever you feel like it) 
But like I said it depends on preference and opponent team setup.

VS

Karthus

Medium

EVERY AND ALL JUNGLER THAT COUNTER JUNGLES ARE HARD. IF THEY MESS UP YOUR RUN ON THE JUNGLE CAMPS YOU NEED TO ADAPT AND RUN A NEW ROUTE. TAKES A LOT OF TIME MOVING FORM PLACE TO PLACE AND YOU WILL BE BEHIND. 

Make sure to gank at that level 4 on top lane.

Jungle Route Back to Top

JUNGLE ROUTE FOR KARTHUS IS THE KEY.

Blue Team(bottom) 

1. Get leash from adc and support. Make sure support takes at least 2 hits from MR.Gromp. Single target so just spam laywaste.png. One key feature is that you have to, and must, auto laywaste.png auto laywaste.png. Spamming laywaste.png will cancel all auto and you will do less damage over time.

2.Kill pop your defile.png and kite continuously while positioning your laywaste.png on the small mobs. Once all the small mobs die. Turn off the defile.png and kite while spamming auto laywaste.png. Should have popped 2031.png at the beginning of fight and again once it runs out.

3. Wolves same as blue buff. 

4.Wraiths keep the defile.png on and spam auto big one and laywaste.png on all of them. 

5. Back to base 

6. Kill Red the same as Blue. As you kill the red buff tell the top laner to back off and pull the lane closer to turret.

7. Golem turn on the e and kill the smaller golem first with positioned laywaste.png.
8. Time for a top lane gank if the line is not pushed!  make sure to pop 2-3x of 2032.png for mana. 

9. Ganking is simple place 2043.png at tribush to check for wards and if there isnt any ADVANCE!
Let the top laner engage with whatever cc they have. 
wallofpain.png and spam laywaste.png forget about the auto. Spam the laywaste.png and advance with the defile.png turned on. IF YOU CAN LAND THE laywaste.png GURENTEED FIRST BLOOD . 4.png to land the defile.png if you think that will help. 
Will leave it up to your decision.

10. Back to base whether it is a successful or unsuccessful gank. 

11. Repeat from gromp --> Wolves --> Wraiths --> golem --> Golem

12. Gank top again

13. repeat 11. 

14. Once you have your fallenone.png use it as a substitute for GANKING in other lanes. It gives a lot of lane pressure.

Purple Team(Top)

Disclaimer Back to Top

Make sure you practice enough in normals first. 


Landing laywaste.png while kiting in jungle is not easy as it seems. (If you live to make others life difficult by all means use it in ranked) 

If anything goes wrong get ready to get blamed even though your top laner and mid laner fed around 0/5/0 each. 

Only tested in SILVER 5-1 / GOLD 5-3. Nothing higher. 

The amount of satisfaction when you get a kill from fallenone.png is still indescribable. Immensely satisfying. 

Mid game/ Late game Back to Top

GANKING IS THE ADVISED. 


AFTER BUILDING 25% COOL DOWN REDUCTION, SPLIT PUSH ANY LANE. THE fallenone.png WILL DO YOUR JOB FOR YOU .
SPLIT PUSH AND MAKE SURE ONE GUYS COMES TO STOP YOU. THEN IT BECOMES A 4V4 TEAMFIGHT AND SINCE YOU HAVE  fallenone.png YOUR TEAMMATES HAVE IMMENSE AMOUNT OF ADVANTAGE.

I USUALLY DO NOT GROUP FOR TEAM FIGHTS. BUT IF YOU DO ALWAYS ENGAGE WITH wallofpain.png MASS SLOW AND WALK IN WITH defile.png. IF THEY FOCUS YOU GOOD, SPAM laywaste.png UNTIL YOU DIE AND ONCE karthuspassive.png POPS SPAM 1-3 MORE laywaste.png.  THEN ITS CHRISTMAS fallenone.png  TEAM FIGHT IS WON. 
YOU CAN ALWAYS 3157.png / 3003.pngBEFORE  YOU DIE.

Thanks Back to Top

First ever guide. I can't even call it a guide. Just a sharing of knowledge I guess. 

I had to pick jungle karthus in ranked as i forgot to switch with the first pick while I was watching youtube video. I know you guys experience this at least once.
Anyway bloody disaster.
But I thought if karthus can jungle he can have so much map pressure. 
Thus, i tried this on my sub account. Which ended up in gold 4 from silver 5. Name is bussypi. It has my karthus stats. Some are really bad I WARN YOU. Like I said there is a chance of 4 man report. But if you actually get comfortable with MR KARTHUS JG  its gonna be hell lot of fun for you. 

Thanks for reading please leave comments for me to improve and share your thoughts too I wanna try them out!!!
