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.
Krathus from the darkest nightmares
Your main skills are Lay Waste and Defile. Try to aim on single unit with Lay Waste - It will get double damage. Use Defile to kill big groups of minions near your turret and when you are chasing enemy chamipons. After 6th lvl ask your teammates for good opportunity to use Requiem. When you reach 13 lvl you will get Wall of Pain - aim behind champions they will have to avoid it or go throught and suffer for a slow movement. Do not forget about your best skill - Death Defied - you can still try to kill somebody within 8 seconds. Just turn your Defile and aim for single champions with Lay Waste. Additional: when you are dead you can freely cast Requiem - nobody will interrupt it.
Runes & Masteries & Summoner Spells
I use only mana reg. runes and my mastery tree is builded for utility too. Because of that you will not need any mana reg. item you can focus on dealing damage. Your Defile skill can easy drain from you all mana but you have Clarity. I prefer use teleport as a second skill but Flash and Exhaust are useful too. Choise is yours.
On beginning you should buy Amplifying Tome and (depends on way you choose: mana for lanes and hp for mid) 1 potion.
When you will get 800 g. as fast as you can back to the base and buy Mejai's Soulstealer - with every kill you will become stronger.
Next item is something for movement I used to pick Sorcerer's Shoes for Magic penetration for future Requiem.
Another item will be Rylai's Crystal Scepter - it is good mix with hp and ap (you will need more hp as a offensive Krathus) and gives you very useful ability to slow your enemies. When enemy is in range of your Defile skill just turn it on and chase him - he will be slowed and you can easily get and kill him.
Void Staff is good in mid game when some of champions can get magic resist. They will be surprised that your requiem still can deal big amounts of dmg.
Banshee's Veil - Useful in late game when all champions are together - when one stun can let everyone get you and kill. Additional you will get few more mana, magic res. and hp.
Last item is free to choose. It can be anything with Ability Power. I prefer Abyssal Scepter - Good Ap and again - Magic Resist of Your enemy will be decreased. Zhonya's Ring is good too but it is very expensive but you can buy first Abyssal Scepter and later sell it and exchange for Zhonya'a Ring.
- NEVER forget about your Dead Defied skill
- ALWAYS aim with your Lay Waste to single unit
I think this is all.
Thanks for reading and sorry about my English :)
