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

ak521 says “A skill matchup. If the karthus is good, it may be game for you. Very hard to engage on due to his large AOE damage and Amumu isn't particularly strong against AP champions. Furthermore, even if you do happen to kill him, he'll probably be able to kill you as well in his death animation.”
EUWRATS says “Take phase rush and go through him with your E to proc phase rush and just dodge his Q while running around him, shouldnt even be a problem”

Frillen says “Top winrate vs Rammus, so he must be nasty. I rarely have big problems bursting him down and countering him with MR. ”

NixLychee says “This champ is really braindead afk farm, so just invade him and kill him. He'll definitely flash away, so try and save your second q for his flash. You might want to get a stopwatch for his ult, he's gonna afk farm and then nuke everybody unless you can survive it.”

Tchouvline says “You can invade Karthus on early game, he's weaker than you're. Buy a stopwatch on early to protect yourself from his R.”

Riealone says “Dodge his Q, stack MR and run him down. You clear almost as fast as he does”
colingogo says “You both powerfarm. If you ever find him after six you can kill him easily, and if you find him before six you can usually outplay him.”

Citric says “Karthus clears faster than Shyvana and can gank with one press of the R button. You need to be actively trying to do more by securing objectives and perhaps counter jungling to break his jungle tempo. Save your W or R for when he dies so you can get out of his passive.”
Polarshift says “Outscales you, outdamages you and clears even faster than you. Not a counter by definition, but still insanely overtuned and most of all AP. You can try to invade his frog at level 2 if he starts blue buff on red side. Building MR, permanently invading him and trying to set him behind is a must. I recommend going Phase Rush and trying to get Herald to end the game quickly.”

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

yers says “Immobile and almost like you, you just need to stun him to start exploding him. Remember his Q deals double damage if it hits only one target, so if you think you're getting hit, just keep running or be near a minion to negate the extra damage.”

Cactusmies says “He 1 shots you by abusing funneling strat. He will always be 1-5 levels ahead of you from the minute you walk in to lane. If the ult doesn't kill you don't worry Liandry's + Dark harvest will finish you off after procing and killing your other 4 team members.”

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

FalleN3 says “He is very squishy and which makes it very easy for you to burst him down and get fed against him in lane. He's a good enough lategame champion though so he will eventually hurt. Try to get fed from him, Roam and end the game as early as possible :)”
Annie Mid | FalleN3's Guide to Annie by FalleN3 | Annie Player
eiensiei says “I out-range him, so I just poke with E without going for passive procs and putting myself in a position to lose a trade. I'll build Zhonya's for his R, but there's no point rushing it as it doesn't deal that much damage early on. If he's some sort of god that lands every single Q, I'll get some Mercury's Treads. He's fairly immobile and pushes easily, so my jungler usually has no issue ganking him and slowing him down from scaling into a late game monster. I'll also spam ping when he's close to 6/gets 6, so my teammates are reminded to back or avoid fights if they're low on HP.”

Dr Eggmund says “Hate him, ideally wait for ganks and all in him then. Otherwise experiment with the Karthus with a few Qs when you play against him. If you get a feel for how much damage you can do and how much you can take you will know when to kill him. Build Spirit Visage if scared and behind otherwise go normal build with Abyssal Scepter for more poke and damage.”

PlayCabex says “very easy match up , you have everything to counter him , your w , your q to heal back his dmg , your w can block his ult , if possible , then try to avoid his w (slow) because if will reduce your movement speed and magic resist , but with that you can still kill him but its just a bit harder”

Sylvan Lore says “Although he does do lots of damage, his skillshots are easy to dodge and he has no cc. I find this matchup quite easy as long as you can outthink the Karthus and dodge his Q spam. If he is rushing for level two, back up and respect it because the only real way to lose this lane is to take a terrible early trade from the level 2 disadvantage.You should be able to bully him early, and burst him out nearly instantly mid and late game. Buying magic resists is theoretically useful, but in almost all situations it is much better to have a Zhonyas to survive his passive or ultimate while also stacking armour for his allies. ”

Aegox says “Karthus burns mana easily, and his Q wont do much damage early game, so just stop him from getting CS and hit your sleeps when you can.”
Jnewbringspain says “Really easy. You can sustain against his poke, and his immobility makes it easy to land Rupture. One of the most useless champions once you land Feral Scream too.”

Scyrine says “he's pretty squishy and with how agile you are it'll be hard for him to hit a skillshot. dodge everything he throws on you and play aggressive. ”

Drewmatth Taliyah says “Start Doran + 2 Pots if 1) You think you can outplay her and hit your W's to generate a kill at levels 3-5 or 2) You think she will burst you down post 6 (get an extra ring). Start Corrupting if you think you will not hit your W's (or you will get poked down) and you rely more on wave clear/spammy poke (you will be way more squisher but more durable -- this is recommended if you are sure you will not get hit by CC spells and instantly die). Be careful of isolated Q (just like Kha'Zix). Play around minions and try to get a full combo on him. Remember if you kill him to back away as soon as possible because of his passive. Always keep in mind that he can ult when you are low hp or your team, so use pings to communicate. Ping when he makes level 6 so your team knows that an ult might come. Roam but keep in mind that if he has ult he will use it. Try to go for the kill as often as possbile. Play with Ignite and get a stopwatch if you want to deny at least an ult.”

Fuzzmonkey says “Karthus comes as an extremely easy match up for Leblanc since he struggles to hit many abilities on her at all. Leblanc just has to hit full combo's and dodge all of Karthus' Q's and she straight up wins.”
