Laning Against Karthus

Laning Against Karthus

When playing as an AD champion in the bottom lane, look for extended trades whenever possible. Trading autos will usually end in your favour- just make sure you dodge his Lay WasteQ’s.

If you see Karthus channelling his RequiemR, try to cancel it with any CC abilities. This will reduce his and his allies chances of getting kills.

Karthus will be looking to farm as much as possible early so he can unlock his Ultimate {{championSpells.KarthusFallenOne}. Try to put him behind by playing aggressive and requesting ganks.

Strategy VS Karthus

Strategy VS Karthus

If you see Karthus using his Ultimate RequiemR at the start of the fight, try to CC him so it cancels his Ultimate RequiemR.

If you kill Karthus at the start of the fight, try to reposition and get away from his Passive. This will reduce his damage output and make surviving the team fight easier.

If you spot Karthus in a side lane split pushing, you could start a team fight. But, you need to keep in mind that he can influence the existing fight with his Ultimate RequiemR.

Karthus Power Spikes

Karthus Power Spikes

Once Karthus has his Ultimate RequiemR, he can impact the map regardless of his positioning. Whenever you’re fighting the enemy, always take into consideration that he may use his Ultimate RequiemR to finish you off.

The more AP and the more magic penetration Karthus gets, the better and stronger he will be. Try to shut him down or constantly invade him to reduce his gold income.

The longer the game goes, the stronger Karthus is going to become. Ensure you put him behind in the early game to make him less useful as the game goes along.
