Hello readers! I am Veigar v2, a challenger midlane main on EUW. My main champions are Veigar and Karthus. I have over a thousand games and have spent a lot of time analysing the best karthus in the world BBoBBo / BBO / Cheong. His OPGG.He is trying to be a pro player at the moment I think but he still plays a lot of .

I am also the creator of the Karthus + Nunu funnel strat ( Old nunu gave ap from his W ) rip nunu :(

My current rank as of writing this guide.

These are the PROS and CONS of


- Global 5 man ultimate that deals a lot of damage

- One of the best level 1-2s in the game.

- Great scaling

- Good DPS with his Q and E

- Flexable, can be picked as any role pretty much.


- No gapclosers / escapes

- Really slow (335 movespeed)

- Weak CC, Really only has damage in his kit

- A lot of weak matchups in midlane

- Item reliant

- Needs his team to make enemies low for his R. If your team cant damage enemy Karthus is really useless.

vs which is better?

Lets start talking about the build. and both have low AP scalings but high base damage which means that if you want to build for best damage over time and dueling power Flat and % magic penetration is the best to build. Items such as synergizes well with .The 10% Extra damage and gives is also really nice for this build. This build spikes a lot faster aswell because of and being a lot cheaper than and due to how valuable magic penetration is on
