Tips Against Karthus in the Jungle Tips Provided by MOBAFire Guide Authors

spuki97 says “Make sure to invade him since he likes to full clear jungle. If he has exhaust in jungle, try to bait it out then blow your combo. Best build: Regular Assassin/Chinese strat”
Agzer says “This champion will out farm you in any scenario. Make sure to permanently invade starting level 2.”
Kao_Oak says “In a strict 1v1, you shred him. BUT he is a scaling champion and no matter how hard he will fall behind, he will start scaling eventually. You need to destroy him and his jungle as much as you can. Hit your W just before his R hits so you reduce it by 90%.”

RengarNBush says “You can cheese him by doing this exact clear, Red -> Blue -> his Red. By the time you do your 2 camps he already did 4, he will have no smite on his red and should be doing it if you do everything right. You get an advantage over this guy from the beginning, but the game will be very hard since he can't really be put behind if he gets to farm his jungle, he might even be higher level than you since his clear is insane, also if you jump on him there is a 80% chance you die, if he has exhaust you can't kill him and run or you die. Very broken champ, if you are new on rengar and playing in high elo dodge this matchup.”

BattleCatsRoyale says “Karthus might be one of the few junglers you can actually invade safely, as long as you track him. he still out damages you early if he lands his Q consistently.”
MaximusWillCarry says “You beat him early but lat he will oneshot with each Q + ults all of your passive blobs. Stomp him early and dont let him get ahead. He is immobile but watch out for his passive.”
Geomine says “you outscale and outrade him in lane so no big deal, just kill him and his adc on repeat he is very squishy, you can sustain his dmg with your W he cant.”

UDYSOF_OCE says “Easy matchup can use R awaken to make fighting hard for Karthus”
Atemporal says “A única chance de Karthus matá-lo é no nível 1, respeite o dano do Q. Nesta partida, você já pode começar a negociar o nível 2 se estiver se sentindo confiante em suas habilidades de esquiva. Use a velocidade de movimento passiva para se esquivar e fugir. Depois de um comércio, vá em direção à sua onda de lacaios. Mesmo que ele acerte um Q, contanto que também acerte um lacaio, ele causará apenas 50% de dano. Karthus não tem ferramentas para se defender se você E nele, então você tem muito potencial de matar no início do jogo. eu. Se você não pensa é possível matá-lo, empurrar as ondas e procurar roams, invades, jg camps etc, pois Karthus não tem como negar o push a não ser matando você. Se Karthus for agressivo, concentre-se em processar sua passiva nele e depois use-a para correr longe / esquivar. Se ele for uma construção frágil como o Eco de Luden ou o de Liandry, ele será macio o suficiente para você negociar com ele sob a torre, e você pode até conseguir 100 para 0 mesmo sob a torre. Isso basicamente não tem risco, pois ele não tem cc ou explosão surpresa para pegá-lo desprevenido. Mais tarde, você o demolirá na pista lateral, especialmente depois de 2+ itens. Proc passivo, dance ao redor dele. Use seu R para evitar o dano do R, se necessário. Ele também é extremamente imóvel, então é fácil acertar W dele. ”

mochileiro says “Karthus is the greatest problem to go against in the jungle, the way to win against him is to counter his jungle early and keep pressing, but take care if he use exhaust.”

KnobHobbler says “Can be frustrating to play against if you can't dodge Q's. You win all 1v1s. Try to zone him off his minions to reduce his gold intake. If scared of his R build Wits End.”

DixonTheGuideMaker says “When playing as an AD champion in the bottom lane, look for extended trades whenever possible. Trading autos will usually end in your favour, just make sure you dodge his Lay Waste(Q). If you see Karthus channelling his Requiem(R), try to cancel it with any CC abilities. This will reduce his and his allies chances of getting kills. Karthus will be looking to farm as much as possible early so he can unlock his Ultimate. Try to put him behind by playing aggressive and requesting ganks.”

Pacu says “Very easy. Take null orb+hexdrinker and he won't be able to kill you. You can also dodge his Q with yours very easily.”

m1NEEX says “Karthus bot is cancer for Jinx as pretty much every mage on bot, since you can't really dodge his skills due to no dashes in your kit. Only good thing about Jinx into Karthus is that when you kill him, your passive can get you out of his passive. He is very squishy, if your supports CC him you can burst him with E > AA > W > AA > R . Take MR runes into this fight. Galeforce also viable into him, but not recommended, since Kraken is way better in teamfights. Also get one stopwatch eventually later on to survive his R.”
Kitqsune says “I guess this would be a threat, never faced one before but Karthus APC is really strong still. Very annoying lane just from thinking about it, has large slows and you can't block any of his kit.”
quinn adc says “This matchup is free top lane. Goal is to bait karthus W, and if he ever uses it, he can't play the game for 15 seconds. Ideally, freeze against karthus, which will force him to over extend. If you freeze, he has to be far away from his tower, so you can E him when he walks up and run him down until he flashes to his tower. You must play close range to him because he out ranges you. Karthus only wins if you play far back, so always be in E range of him if you can. Use Q on him during trades, which makes it almost impossible for him to land his Qs on you while blinded.”
7EyesNoSkills says “He can slow you down, you can easily kill him but he will also easily kill you when he dies. Wit's End will help alot. If possible, kill enemy toplaner as first while dodging Karthus's Q, then kill him. Don't forget to dodge his Q after he dies.”

Mvrshy says “[JUNGLE] hes a bit annoying, his ganks are shit but sometimes he can just press R and get a penta, making him very impactful. cas doesnt benefit too much from zhonyas so you dont really want to be forced to build this. annoying if ahead.”

Adamonias says “You outrange him, you can just bully him. Sidestep Q's and you should be sweet. He actually does outscale you, so dont fall behind and ping when he gets 6. If you trade WQ for his Q you win the trade so dont be afraid of those trades, but it should be easy to poke for free bc he will have to Q the wave. No-one really plays karthus mid anymore anyway”

SkyBanana says “Both singers of the souls: One sings of death and one sings of life. Karthus is a skilled base match up since he acts like Seraphine but in a different way. His early laning phase is very strong due to Q spam and E mana gain from kills, however he is not good to deal with ranged burst mages (which Seraphine is.) Your all in will kill Karthus but you have to make sure you have enough AP and HP to negate his R after death. All in all if you can beat him early you definitely seal the late game.”

Body Those Fools says “If he takes Exhaust, it will be hard to all-in him unless he's very low HP already. Karthus Q has similiar range to Azir so if you trade with him stand in your minions so you take less damage from his Q or be prepared to dodge it. The only way for him to get fed is by Ulting when your teammates are low. You can build a Zhonya's Hourglass or a Banshee's Veil to negate his Ult. If he summons his wall on you, try to disengage since it lowers your magic resistance and gives him the advantage. While fighting him, stay out of his E to avoid more of his DPS.”

Tips Against Karthus in Top Lane Tips Provided by MOBAFire Guide Authors

LeyzeHP says “(jng) Standard runes are good here. It's not a tiny because he scales really hard and you have to be careful while invading if he has exhaust. Going assassin is the best choice since he usually go for burn builds.”
Rengar jng/top/adc low elo guide 12.17 by LeyzeHP | Rengar Player
RuchaczSzmat69 says “He has very good dps but he wont be able to hit most of the Qs if your movement is good and you use W on his slow. He is squishy as fuck, unmobile and his autos are propably the worst aa in the game so its very hard for him to win "lasthit the barrel" minigame with you. U may struggle early if he plays safe but mid/lategame you can just barrel him, then prowler+passive+Q and he should be dead by that time. Your barrels will make him use his passive a lot.”
Oogaboogaga says “Harder than it would first seem. All inning is risky due to his E damage. Play safe if you can not play vs. For jungle, he usually brings exhaust so be weary. Try to not trade kills.”
Garen Top/Mid/Jungle by Oogaboogaga | Garen Player
NegativePhoenix says “Not too much he can do against you honestly. He's immobile and an easy target to just auto if you can get close enough. If he ults you can just W it to stop it from hitting you, and if he dies you can W as well to stop his passive attacks.”
7EyesNoSkills says “He can slow you down, you can easily kill him but he will also easily kill you when he dies. Wit's End will help alot. If possible, kill enemy toplaner as first while dodging Karthus's Q, then kill him. Don't forget to dodge his Q after he dies.”

Raen says “Cheese him lvl 1. Also jump on him and try to dodge as many Qs as possible while fighting with him bcs if you will dodge his Q he will run of out of mana really fast and his E isnt dealing much dmg on early anyway. Once hes low with mana it's free kill for you. Use E while he R. If you see hes going back follow him to prevent him from R, if he does it stun him to stop his R.”

MHLoppy says “Almost entirely based on each of your abilities to dodge the other person''s Qs. Remember once you kill him you'll still eat some damage afterwards due to his passive, but if you get out of his Q/E range you can use W and life steal to heal up enough to survive an ult if you're low.”
A Comprehensive Guide to Top Lane Olaf by MHLoppy | Olaf Player
LunaticDancer says “His lvl 1 is ridiculously strong, so try your hardest not to get hit by his Qs. Bullied runes, D Shield. He's immobile and with a terrible attack animation (can't clear ghouls efficiently), so after the initial hurdles you should be killing him easily each time he shows up. If he uses R while alive, you can interrupt it with your W wall displacement (place it so the wall bumps him).”
Gambler Yorick, or An Intro to Economic Terrorism by LunaticDancer | Yorick Player
Stinkee says “It's unlikely that you'll face a Karthus in lane but if you do, he'll be very easy to deal with. He is extremely immobile, use that to your advantage. Always look to fight him and get in his face. Don't let him farm, don't let him poke you. Level 6, just E him and ult him then Q and he'll either be dead or very close to it. He has no way to escape that combo unless he has flash.”
