1) In terms of fighting, Early = AD, mid = AP, late = AD. Think about it, AP champs are strong when they get ranks in their abilities and some dmg items.

Ex: Veigar. Many think Veig's Q farm is what makes him strong. False. What makes him strong is that once he gets around lvl 9-12 he can drop a rank 2 stun, land a dark matter, ult and Q. Big sexy damage.

--> He should siege or defend with a partner. Blow combo load, have partner clean up if necessary.

Karthus is pretty awesome at locking down points for obscene periods of time, even if you kill him if his team is paying any amount of attention he'll be able to hold you off long enough for them to secure the point.

A caster should be put on a team in Dominion like you would put a tank on a team in SR. One is great for holding a point and pressuring another one, but you don't really need two. You also can't just run around looking for fights with them, either, like you would with a tanky dps.

I usually play Morgana unless I see another caster or ranged AD. I had a game where I picked Morgana, saw a Caitlyn, swapped out for Riven, then the rest of the team grabbed Lux, Sona, and Morgana. They spent the whole game zerging after points instead of defending them and still managed to not get a lot of the points they were trying to take. If you are a caster, focus more on defense, because that's what you're best at.

EDIT: Oh, and buy a Frozen Heart. Almost every game, almost every caster, especially with all this tanky dps running around.

I do, sorry. =\ I go Heavy Weapons Plataform Sona, by buying Sheen and health potions. Result is that my Power Chord with Valor does a lot of damage game start.

Just needed to buy a lot of life for her, due to her poor Life Pool, but that hardly proves to be a nuisance since there are many usefull Dominion life which add Health. =P

I've been owning as Malzahar, getting #1 often and even doing 17 kills in one of them. My role every game was more of a run around murdering people (which I have been told is wrong) and stacking mass AP with the free gold.

I agree, Karthus is just stupidly annoying.
