Yes, his ap ratios are ****py, and yet he has possibly the best late game scaling out of any AP carry. AP ratios aren't everything. Having a low AP ratio just means that he doesn't have much burst damage - which, shouldn't come to much of a surprise. Most karthus players know this and simply whittle their opponent down in lane and finish them with requiem.

There is this notion of AP/second however. This is quite a useful read. It justifies that while karthus has pretty bad ap ratios, he will deal the most damage in team fight over a long period of time. With this in mind, I think that karthus doesn't need Liandry's Torment to supplement his damage - rather survivability to that he can live longer and deal more damage to his opponents in a team fight.


Pretty much this.
