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.
hello everyone i'm Kassadin and welcome to my guide! today i am going to tell you what skills to choose, summoner spells, runes, good items and the right masteries. i will teach you some tips of how to play karthus the troll. if you dont follow my guide... I'LL SILENCE YOU ALL!!! enjoy my guide =)
skills of trolling
this is why karthus is really hard to play. why? because it takes some skill to aim this spell but you get the hang of it =) ok this spell is a really strong spell not as strong as his ulti ofcourse. the spell can deal double dmg only on single units! also it is very useful to farm and harass. trust me master this skill.
this skill can be really effective if used right. it decreases their magic resit and movement speed which any spell would deal addiotional damage and would definatley improve the aim of this spell
this skill is very useful for last hitting and regaining mana if not activated. if it's activated. it forms a huge death vortex which deals damage for fools who are next to him. becareful it will drain your mana quick! master this skill at level 13
best ultimate and great passive
this is one of the best ulti's in ths game why? because it has an endless range (which it will demolish every champion) this is why karthus is a troll because of this overpowered ulti. it will help you feed if you lose mid. also it will help you carry the game hard and most of all the enemy will be angry and mad!
this passive is really unique and awesome! why? because you can cast spells while you are dead! only for 7 seconeds thats all. you can even cast the ulti of trolliness while you dead. also it can cause an aftermath to the oppenent which will make the enemy player cry
items in late game
pros and cons
really strong in mid lane
great farmer and poking
dominate mid lane with blue buff
his helps give him free kills
amazing at 1v1
powerful at teamfights
difficult to play
very squishy at the beginning
i have gone 21/0/9 on my masteries
i put most of the masteries on offence to boost up ability power, cooldown reduction and magic penetration because it would really help karthus troll better and much more damage in early game
i have put 9 points on utility because karthus can run out of mana quick is you spam or forgot to unactivate
this will boost up his mana regenration and his mana. and others on buffs boost
i have put no points on defence DONT EVEN ASK ME WHY!
summoner spells of dreams
mainly i would take and because flash helps you escape from sticky situations and ignite helps you finish of those enemy's in painful death!
is actually good for chasing down enemies and escaping so i would put it on recommended list
is only good to pummel down your oppements thats all but i still put it on recommended list
DO NOT TAKE THOSE SPELLS TRUST ME!
CLAIRVOYANCE: karthus is not a support champion he is A trOLL champion
SMITE: karthus is not a jungle
PROMOTE: very useless in late game
HEAL: you are not an ad carry
CLARITY: no need because we have rod of ages and arch angles staff
SURGE: worst spell of all DONT get this spell!
runes of trolls
i will list of what runes to take.
GREATER QUINTENSENCE OF POTENCY: gives you some ability power also gives you a huge start from early game
GREATER MARK OF INSIGHT: gives you some magic penetration to take down tanks quicker
GREATER SEAL OF FOCUS: reduces cooldowns of ulti of TROLLINESS!!!!
GREATER GLYPH OF INSIGHT: recieve's less damage from mages
twisted fate is a good champion but his only problem is his skill is shorted range and karthus can activate his to damage him
tips against dodge his and make sure you activate when he attempts to use trust me it's easy facing
oh my god this guy is really hard! his will seriously hurt karthus the silence last's 2.25 seconeds which that means it will disable karthus's which it will go on cooldown.his is used either a escape tool or to catch up enemies. this will make worthless
try and poke him with before he silences you and call for alot of ganks to win against kassadin]
anivia is a strong mid champion but she gets absuoletly destroyed by karthus why? because karthus can spam his when anivia is in and can kill anivia really fast. getting blue buff for karthus makes him unstoppable in lane (until it wears off)
make sure you avoid her which is easy to avoid and hur*** her as much as possible
