Swain can be good too. Snare, slow. and his ult makes him almost unstoppable (assuming his team has his back.)

fiddles, karthus and swain can be ok with zhonas hour glass. ie. flashing in and AoEing/Zhonas can cause some serious havok.


Karthus especially. Because even if you get facemelted when you jump in, you can still keep fighting after you die.


Another style could be Leblanc/Ahri flashing in and out real fast, messing up the enemy teams posistioning and timing. Not quiet a big group vs group initiator but still an initiator of sorts.


Vlad with Zhonas and his pool of blood could give you 4 seconds of untargteability + he has a decent amount of AoEs so he could be considered.


So besides the 3 you mentioned

1. Kharthus
2. Vlad
then the others
Fiddlesticks
Swain
Ahri
Leblanc

Anyone with a ranged stun/snare that can be used at a safe range. For instance, Morgana or Zyra

They nerfed Karthus's W a while ago; it no longer reduces armor. Only reduces magic resist.

THor, that wall that is so wonderful on Karthus has recently been nerfed into the ground. It no longer reduces armour at all, and only takes 15% of MR at all levels.


I agree that Cassiopea is really not a good initiator. The ult is too short range for that job, and the other things are ok poke, but poke is not initiation.

Best AP carry initiate is without a doubt Galio and it's not even close. Morgana's flash ult gives them time to get away and disperse, they have to be facing Cass and Kennen's stun doesn't last as long.

Galio flash ult, done right, is pretty much 2 seconds of locking down the entire enemy team followed by a ton of burst. I have seen so many team fights go down like this...

Galio Flash ults
Galio ult ends
Enemy team is Aced.


It is easily the single strongest mid lane initiation in the game.

Rumble ult for mad range (!!!), damage and 35% slow. Especially godly when chained with something like amumu or Jarvan. :)
