Karthus, in my opinion is probably one of the hardest champions in the game to use, and to actually get good with. It took me 50 games or more of fine tuning to make this build for your pleasure, and still i learn something every game. But i have to say, i think it's worth the time, and games played/spent in order to get good with karthus because he is such a great champion once you know how to use him.

I wouldn't suggest Karthus to you if you are new to the game, or aren't good at getting away and nuking people.

That being said, Karthus is fine to get in the thick of the fight and do what he does best, which is, honestly, to die haha. No but seriously, you should be in the fight and doing your thing since your passive will be the turn in the battle. You have 8 seconds after you die to sit there and cast spells free of charge, and if you die on the outskirts of the fight, you're not only hurting yourself, but you're hurting your team as well, since your Defile is such a close range. Trust me on this, if you die in the middle of everyone, your no charge defile will rape there team while your team sits there and pwns face. Sad to say, and it sucks for the other guys, but you will most likely be focused first and downed quickly, but the thing is, that is EXACTLY what you want to happen. That way you can control the battle field, and pwn people for 8 seconds while you sit there not taking any damage at all.

PROS AND CONS



Pros:
Very enjoyable once learned
Extreme amounts of damage, even early game with his Q
Ult is unescapable
Slow owns just about everything that runs through it
Passive alows him to stay in the fight 8 seconds after death

Cons:
Killed pretty quickly if swarmed
hmmm, ummm, i'll get back to you on this one. :)

Just 2 pictures of my build working it's magic.

The first pic was as my friend, might i add it was his first game with Karthus, i was there to help, but he did the rest.

The second game was one of my own, so if you doubt my build, you can look there and see. :)


I hardly ever lose with Karthus, but here you go, just an example. ;)





I'll have more on Karthus as i go on, just stay tuned, and keep checking the guide for more info.
