[11.9] The Deathsinger, A Quick Karthus Guide

By riftyxo
With Karthus u want to have very high CS/m numbers meaning u want to farm alot, like alot.
Karthus isn't played like Lee sin or Rek'sai where u spam gank lanes.
With Karthus u want to consistently and optimally fullclear your jungle since u have one of the fastest clears in the game and should abuse that to get an XP and gold lead over the enemy jungler who cant keep up with ur pace.
With that said, Karthus is very good at taking objectives because of his isolation damage on his q so dont be scared to take dragons and heralds.
He's very susceptible to early game invades so be careful for that if u think u'll get invaded.
Keep in mind Karthus is a late game scaling champion so u probably wont win most 1v1s against enemy jungler if theyre a strong early game champ like lee, xin, etc
Doesnt mean its impossible though if ur good at hitting q's and such.
Karthus can snowball out of control very quickly if u get ahead since he farms camps so insanely quick and can turn that lead to hard winning skirmishes since ur a higher level then the enemies and have item advantage.
Karthus is very reliant on hitting his q's, there isnt some secret trick to getting good at hitting them other than just practice practice practice. The more u play, the better u'll get, simple as that.
Be careful with ur E usage since it drains alot of mana (especially early game when u dont have alot) so if ur inconsiderate u can run out of mana very quickly if u dont pay attention so dont have it on perma when ur running around the jungle.
I dont really have much more to say than that, this is my first guide and its really scuffed but i tried my best =D
I'll maybe work on bettering the formatting later if i feel like it.
Hope i helped someone :)
If u want a more in-depth guide i would recommend Insightful's Karthus guide, it goes more in-depth into the topics i talking about here.
