Karthus

the Deathsinger

Mage

The harbinger of oblivion, Karthus is an undying spirit whose haunting songs are a prelude to the horror of his nightmarish appearance. The living fear the eternity of undeath, but Karthus sees only beauty and purity in its embrace, a perfect union of life and death. When Karthus emerges from the Shadow Isles, it is to bring the joy of death to mortals, an apostle of the unliving.

Death Defied (KarthusP)

Upon dying, Karthus enters a spirit form that allows him to continue casting spells for 7 seconds.

Lay Waste (KarthusQ)

Karthus unleashes a delayed blast at a location, dealing damage to nearby enemies.

Wall of Pain (KarthusW)

Karthus creates a passable screen of leeching energy. Any enemy units that walk through the screen have their Movement Speed and Magic Resist reduced for a period.

Defile (KarthusE)

Karthus passively steals energy from his victims, gaining Mana on each kill. Alternatively, Karthus can surround himself in the souls of his prey, dealing damage to nearby enemies, but quickly draining his own Mana.

Requiem (KarthusR)

After channeling for 3 seconds, Karthus deals damage to all enemy champions.

Karthus Counter Tips

Karthus can cast spells for a short duration after he is killed. Move away from his corpse to be safe.

Make sure you always have enough health to survive Requiem, even if you have to go back to the base more frequently to heal.
