This isn't just a complaint to riot to nerf Karthus, but a piece of serious advice to serious ranked team players.

Karthus' ultimate, requiem, combined with his passive, makes a rediculously OP champion. Take one of the following builds:

Sorcerers Shoes
2x Rabadons Deathcap
Morello's Evil Tome
Void Staff
Rylai's Crystal Scepter

If your opponents have high health, high speed, high magic resist, or your team has lots of melee fighters

Sorcerers Shoes
Rabadons Deathcap
4x Archangels Staff

If your opponents have very low health or low magic resist

The top build gives you 657 AP, slowing on your requiem, and loads of magic penetration. The Bottom build gives you loads of mana and gives you aproximately 1140 AP!!! This means that your team will ace in nearly all team fights. Pick up the blue buff with both builds, to give you 40/20% cooldown reduction. So why do i chose these builds.

Late game, when these builds are completed, team fights are inevitable. You can run in, do lots of damage, and run off using requiem afterwards, doing 800/1100 damage respectively. If you die trying this, no matter, just cast it after you're dead with your passive!

Also, if you are playing as karthus:

1) Farm minion kills from the very beginning with defile and lay waste, in order to get enough gold and experience to fulfill these builds.

2) Have a maximum of one other player on your team who uses the blue buff in summoners rift (which is best for Karthus), so you can use it for mana and COOLDOWN REDUCTION!

And so, with the use of requiem every 72/96 secs, these builds are seriously OP, so riot should nerf karthus

why are you stating this as if nobody knows what his ult does? using req as soon as its off cd would be a great waste... take a counter pick like fizz in a team fight make sure fizz kills karthus 1st then work on staying sustained enough so you can back out so karthus doesnt pick any kills up with a rage ult.

Sorcerers Shoes
Rabadons Deathcap
4x Archangels Staff
As for this as a valid karthus build is hilarious.... you would die instantly making popping your ult afterwards a waste. kill karthus back out re-enter simple .....

Also letting karthus farm up to a rabs and 4 archs you deserve to die in his ult hes one of the easiest mids to counter and push out of lane.

And how will our lovely glass-cannon Karthus farm those two deathcaps?

Do u really mean loads of mana or TONS OF MANA?! but anyway, when u have 2 rabadons, why don't u just buy 6 and afk in base?

Karthus is a glasscannon who, once dead, becomes immobile, instakill him out of position and his ult is all he does, which is imo a pretty realistic scenario

He is pretty weak and that ult is his only ticket even be picked by players.
