Summoner Spells Back to Top

12.pngTeleport

Why teleport? Teleport is a good thing on Karthus. This is a useful summoner on Karthus because you can make big money plays. You can counter a gank on Bot and Top lane and when you die, you can still kill them with your image.

3.pngExhaust

Exhaust is a okay summoner on Karthus. Karthus is a champion where you need to land your Q's. You can slow them and down and land your Q's. It is also good on Zeds. I usually recommend this.

4.pngFlash

You can make big money plays. It is required for Karthus to make big money plays.

Starting Items

    Start. You can also use it to get mana and healing. Karthus runs out of mana quickly
    More mana. Mana is key on Karthus

Professor Karf's Stats Back to Top

Items order Back to Top

-For AP champions that dominate Karthus like Orianna or someone that dominates you in lane that is AP, get tear than Rylai's always. 


-Then, either go Abyssal, Deathcap if owning, Luden's is 5th or 6th item, Zhonya's if teamfighting early (Don't recommend until teamfight, but against like an Annie or AD assassin like Zed or Talon, get Zhonya's). Always get archangel's staff for the active.

-Order
1. Rylai

2. Build tear into Archangel's staff for shield for active (active is shield)

3. Deathcap if owning

4. Zhonya's. This is for mid to late game fighting. You can go in with this.

5. Luden's for that 100 AP and that passive

6. Abyssal, Luden's (if didn't get it yet), or Void Staff

Early, Mid, Late Game Back to Top

-Early Game

Early game, you need to land your laywaste.png and not use your auto attack as much. If you land your laywaste.png killing a minion, you can get some of your mana back. You can also use your laywaste.png to harass your enemy making them low so they don't win lane as much.

-Mid Game

There is not much about mid game. Mid game, just keep an eye on top and bottom to see if you can use your ult fallenone.png to secure their kill. Make sure to check their HP and you're HP. You also have to have awareness. Be careful not to ultfallenone.png when long ranged champions can stun you like 103.png's ahriseduce.png.

-Late Game

In team fights, make sure to get in a position that is good for your passive (karthuspassive.png). They can't kill you and you can lead your enemies into your team. You can sometimes do this and get kills. This will help your team.
