Karthus Matchups Overview

Karthus General information

Karthus tips and tricks

Look to gank lanes that are overextended and are low. You do not have the greatest ganking potential, so ganking easy lanes is key.

Continuously toggle your DefileE on and off for extra damage when farming the jungle camps. Do not leave it on though as it will quickly burn through your mana bar.

Keep an eye on the minimap at all times and use your RequiemR to pick up kills on low health enemies.
