Summoner Spells Back to Top

Flash4.pngis a must-go, obviously because Karthus has no engage/escape tools.

I prefer Exhaust3.png second, probably because I am support main haha. It helps to duel or 1v2 and also save your allies.

Teleport12.png is an option too, you can get to lane and dont lose turret/farm and you can gank other lanes early. Important thing is that you can push lanes far from your team and TP to the fight quickly.

Ghost6.png I suggest this for Car-thus build, press E and run into your enemies. Works if you are tanky enough.

Not talking about Smite11.png here, I dont play jungle.

Don't take Ignite14.png unless you are somewhere in Bronze-Silver.

Masteries Back to Top

FEROCITY TREE:

 - 6114.png. AS Karthus is not that strong as you may thought.

 - 6123.png. I prefer this one, because it helps your teammates to get the kills after karthusfallenone.png. Also you deal a lot of AoE damage, so you can affect more enemies.

 - 6134.png. I take this only beacuse 6131.png isnt good on Karthus, since all of your abilities are AoE (unless its single target karthuslaywastea1.png), AP is also nice.

 - 6142.png. I like this one more than 6141.png, because you have 3% from the start. You can still take Booty Hunter tho.

 - 6154.png. AP Karthus, remember?

 - 6164.png. It's better than 6362.png on Karthus, because he doesnt work like Lux or Veigar - oneshot people with 3 abilities. It works great with karthusdefile.png  and, well, every other ability too lol.


CUNNING TREE:

 - 
6312.png. Helps with farming, and well, 10 MS is not really worth.

 - 
6323.png. Karthus is not an Assassin, but this mastery gives extra 2% Damage, it helps in lane and duels. Also, if you cast karthusfallenone.png while being alone it will deal extra damage to all champions too. 6322.png is for pussies :^)

 - 
6331.png. MORE PERCENT DAMAGE INCREASE PLZ. Helps killing people with karthusfallenone.png .

 - 
6342.png. My own prefernce. I like gold, also 6343.png is useless for Karthus most of the time, since you get kills/assists after your death. Not always, but still. 6341.png is cheese, but wait, its another damage boost :^)

karthusfallenone.png dot-pattern.png karthuslaywastea1.png dot-pattern.png karthusdefile.png dot-pattern.png karthuswallofpain.png


Nothing special in skillorder here, take karthuslaywastea1.png at lvl 3, dont go too ham if you dont know where enemy jungler is. If your jungler is going to gank, take Wall.

I don't advise to karthuslaywastea1.pngkarthusdefile.pngkarthuslaywastea1.pngkarthusdefile.pngkarthuslaywastea1.pngkarthusfallenone.pngkarthuswallofpain.png Yes, you get a bit more damage and mana sustain, but Wall is important too.

Items Back to Top

Starting Items

Core Items

Situational Items

STARTING ITEMS:

Pretty standard, D. Ring and pots. Gives all you need early.

CORE BUILD:

3027.png - usually a first buy, better as soon as possible. Gives a lot of HP, Mana, AP and sustain. The best item for Karthus I guess.

3020.png - classic boots for Karthus, dont buy anything else. Buy them after the first item.

3157.png - first item against Zed/Kayn/Talon/Yasuo. If you are behind, dont buy RoA after this, go for 3030.png.

3135.png - good second item if enemies started buying MR items.

3136.png - buy this after 1-2 finished items. This will give you 50 MPen with boots and runes (if you are using first page of course). Don't finish it unless you need 3151.png passive against fat tanks or all items are done.
3089.png - go for Deathcap if you are ahead and dont need % Magic Pen from 3135.png. It will increase you damage a lot.

3003.png - lets talk about this one. It's  a great late-game item, combined with RoA it gives a lot of mana and AP, but if you buy 3070.png early it will delay your damage a bit. Do it on your own risk.

3165.png - its a good item when you already have some damage and penetration in your kit, all stats from it are really nice, but many players dont like Morello. I like it. Thats why this book is here. There is nothing wrong with some CDR on Karthus, also it gives 100 Ap and 400 Mana, what else do you need?

3116.png - nerfed, but still viable. Buy it with 3151.png, to double the damage, bring more CC and survive in fights longer.

3102.png - it is good against CC chhampions such as Lux/Veigar, also it has nice MR stats.

3285.png - weird item for Karthus, but it can work if you want to burst squishes with one karthuslaywastea1.png. Sell boots and buy it in late game, 100 AP is 100 AP.

2139.png - buy this one late game if you have 500g, AP and true damage.

3001.png - decent item against heavy AP teams OR if you suck in lane. It gives MR and RoA passive + an aura. Helps in teamfights and duels, but gives no AP and your ult will deal less damage on targets far away from the aura.
