Recently I've been playing AD Ezreal in mid and I wreck most other mid chars. But my one problem is Karthus, just reaching out to anyone who has any tips or tricks on how to counter this crazy ult s.o.b.

I probably should have specified more. Whenever I play him, he spams his Q and I can avoid it but I'll get ht ever so often and once he hits six and I'm low on health, his ult is just unavoidable and bluepilling can create some problems.


Edit: Ah I see with the Hexdrinker, I'll test that out in my build. Might save my life early game, thanks.

Lay Waste? Dodge it.
Wall of Pain? Arcane Shift ftw.
Requiem? Banshee's Veil. Perhaps Guardian Angel? I'd say Zhonya's Hourglass but... if you are playing AD Ezreal it's just weird (though it's fun if your whole team buys it, Karthus is completely useless then :D)

EDIT: Obviously Hexdrinker is useful as well. Often overlooked, guilty of it myself as well :P

Dodging Lay Waste should be pretty easy once you get Boots. You mention that you get hit ever so often, but aren't you hitting Karthus ever so often with Mystic Shot as well?
As for him getting his ult, recall sooner. Ask for your jungler to take over the lane or to gank.

Kill him.

As anyone with a decent amount of damage, you can just kill him in lane and he's pretty useless later.

That, and you can just counter pick him with someone who beats him.
Tri lane for life.

Ah okay, then Hexdrinker is the best solution I guess :)

Killing him once won't exactly make him useless.. His teamfights are so strong @.@
