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

checca says “One of the worst matchups for Zac in the jungle by far is Karthus. There is literally no way to counter him since you cannot dodge his E. Going in is almost always a death sentence, so most of the time I will only use my Q1, Q2, and CC and save my E to get out of his passive when he is dead. Never jump in on Karthus unless you are sure you can kill him and escape. Also, be aware that he will kill your passive in his death passive.”

basrty1p says “His skill is no threat to you anymore since you have CC, DPS, and team utility better than him. Just use W+E+Q+Ignite to kill him instead.”
Kindredgarten says “Stop his ultimate with yours, you can save yourself and your team. Early game powerfarmer in the jungle, you can invade him for an easy kill.”

lovicoaching says “2,3,4 or 5. If he can't invade level 1, can't invade level 4 after clear, and you can get scuttles and he doesn't go exhaust he's a 1 or a 2 on difficulty scale, free win. If he goes exhaust and any of those are possible he's around a 3 to 4. If he goes exhaust and he has strong ad laners who allow him to invade level 1, invade after full clear at lvl 4, contest all scuttles AND setup ganks, he's a 5. Player skill does matter also but lanes etc. matter more here as long as he knows to go exhaust. Hard cover level 1 invade. Do not start same side of the map as him if he seems like a decent player (decent elo and has exhaust). He finishes clear 2:55 with 1 smite up leashless so he WILL be on your blue before you finish your clear if you do not start opposite side from him. ”
Davecraft16 says “An immobile champion who doesn't take flash, if this isn't a free kill I don't know what it is. Unless you are high elo he will miss most of his q. Just perma invade him and don't even let him gank. Put an end to his suffering.”

Kukiziuu_ says “If you play rhaast or assasin your winning against him, hes the easiest matchup you could play against. Invade his jungle as much as possible, play near objectives.”
Blubtastic says “When your E is down he can easily exploit your lack of mobility. Phase Rush counters this well.”

Bhyure33 says “You can kill him easily if you get close to him. But, be aware that he can kill you in his passive. He is also a great threat to your team even when behind because of his R. But other than that, you should be able to carry better.”

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

LewisTheRat says “I'd recommend running ghost as it makes it insanely hard to land his q for him. When he dies, he can keep using his spell for 7 seconds so be careful, try to kite him always.”
[12.23] Twitch's Guide + Matchup sheets by LewisTheRat | Twitch Player
slendoooo says “Karthus is only problematic level 1, because you don't really have a way to dodge his Q's. So avoid fighting him at that level and wait for your level 2, when you can use W it makes it easier to dodge his Q's. And late game when he can damage you and your whole team with his ultimate. But most games won’t get that, because Karthus ADC players tend to play hyper aggressive and Draven profits from that. You can also look to buy an early maw or mercs for extra protection. A video example of Karthus-Draven Matchup: (To be made)”
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.”

Doody_tco says “Avoid being slowed by his wall and avoid having a low health and you should be fine”

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 “Against a fed one, the matchup is even. Dodge his q's with your passive ms and kill him and quickly get out of his passive zone and you'll be fine. If needed, take stopwatch for his ult (obviously).”
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.”

Deru says “In general karthus is good against your champ because flipping a karthus into your team is just troubleful. In lane he's easily stompable tho so try to solokill him or ask for jungler's help since he is an immobile mage.”

Samikin says “Non-Threat. Dodge Q. That is all. He outranges you, but his Q's are really easy to dodge. Get up in his face if you can without getting hit by too many Q's, then it's an auto-win. Recommendation: Aery (+ Ingenious Hunter) rune page Crown of the Shattered Queen + Lich Bane”
StralekS says “Kat Favored: Electrocute/ Sorcery: Short Trades, Ignite + Flash, Doran Shield start. Play lane safely, farm, and when he wastes ability, punish him with all in combo. You can rush Sunderer or Nashor for guaranteed win.”

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. ”
