Playing against Karthus
Key Insights
If you see Karthus moving to his turret in fog of war, chances are he’s looking to cast
. If you have a way to interrupt it, move in to stop him.
Karthus is pretty weak early, so trying to kill him alone or in a gank before lvl 6 is generally a good idea.
Grabbing
as a tank,
as a mage, and
as an AD champion can aid in negating
's damage. Nullifying Orb rune from the Sorcery Tree is another option.
deals 2x damage when only hitting one target, so fighting in your minion waves can sometimes be a more favorable trade.
Power Spike
His spike comes at one item once he completes
, which will allow him to sustain from constant spell spam. He can also go
instead or grab both for a slower scaling build.
Vulnerable
As an immobile mage, Karthus is always somewhat vulnerable, but he is easier to reach and kill if he doesn’t have
available. It’s a long CD of 18 secs!
