Team Fighting

With this build I find it easy to sometimes be a little back, don't be afraid to haresse them until they come at you guys.
DO NOT BE THE FIRST ONE IN!
If they start to run ( which they will) this would be the time for WALL OF PAIN if you get them with it and your close enough use DEFILEand always use your LAY WASTE. If they are lucky enough to escape you and your team, use REQUIEMunless your near there spawn ... in that case just attack the Nexus. But if your not then use it and hopefully u will get some kills, ( and listen to people say how "noob" or "gay" Karthus Ultimate is ;) )

Items

Since this is all AP doran's ring is very useful, if you are fed and have lots of GOLD I get the Blasting Ward or Needlessly Long Rod for the Rabadan Cap. IF not then get the Catalyst The Protector since Karthus has low HP at the beginning. Morello's Evil Tomb is very use full for it has 20% CD (Cool-Down) if they start to get MR the Void's Staff will help you out with killing them, if not then get the Rabadan Cap. Once you got all these and still want more power trade Doran's ring for the Rabadan's Cap.
This will help you out A LOT with Karthus

Farming

Lay Waste is very use full and don't forget when You unlock Defile every time you kill something or some one u gain mana back ( only when its off) Karthus basic attack doesn't do much until near the end when it can do up to 120 damage.
