Not Updated For Current Season
The masteries shown here are not yet updated for the current season, the guide author needs to set up the new masteries. As such, they will be different than the masteries you see in-game.
Hi all it's my first guide here so don't be bad with me :) i reached lvl 30 5 days ago and actually i have 200 wins and 190 losses.I write today my own version of khartus. i think he is a very strong champions and if u know how to use him you can dominate with requiem an entire game.Well let's see it more in detail and sry for the bad english!With this build i do at least 20 kills every game ding well max 8 times so watch out!
Runes and Masteries
For the masteries i choose something pretty traditional for an AP carry.As runes i put 9 MP marks(essential),9 armor seals because if u have to mid wgainst a champion like Catylin you are even less squishy and then 3 ap glyphs and 6 ap lvl.
i use healing and flash as spells because you loose a lot of life as khartus in mid it's really hard to dominate a lane early game without risking ganks from jungler exc so it's useful healing and more important flash to avoid ganks
Pros / Cons
-hellish ap carry -very squishy early game
-requiem -you need a pretty good team
-his passive let him surprise enemies -if your team is bad you won't get fed and you
We start with some mana because with these runes you won't have so much mana left and 2 pots.After we buy a Mejai,this is good if u can use requiem and assist your team or get some kills you'll gain tons of ap to dominate. Then some ability power and the most important item is Morello's Evil Tome for the cd reduction to use more often requiem and be annoying for enemy team.Then I put some life/ap and abyssal scepter to get some def and mp and finish with void staff or another ap item.
Let's analyse skills.... first of all lay waste because of it's ridiculous cd and waste of mana you can push enemy back and farm pretty easily. Then Defile:this is a very important skill!If u die activate that to deal damage to all enemies near you and it's your farming key!Then Wall of pain to help jour jungler in ganks or slowing down enemies during team fights.
Well in early game we must see who you have against in mid.If u have against a champ like leblanc or akali you have to be proud because they have burts damage so save flash and heal and important weaken them because if u die u can get the kill with defile or using a lot of lay waste!If u die you have 7 secs to cast all you have so do it! Vs other like caty or twisted fate try to push them back with lay waste they won't have time to react!And you'll farm!Farming is important for khartus expecially if u have a pretty bad team and your mejai doesn't give you so much ap.
I think that's all if u have any question or something thst is wrong just ask to me i'm open to everything! as i said it's my 1st guide so i have a lot to learn and your advices would be precious!Contact me here or in game I'm Rispols.... i haven't written a ranked guide because i haven't experience in ranked so..... well that's all hope you'll enjoy this guide!
