Elementz, why did you place Karthus on the bottom of the 3rd tier? I would like to hear your reasoning, since I'm interested in buying him. I want to know why he's not as viable as the other casters...Thanks.

He's the single highest DPS caster in the game and his R can really be devistating to people who think they got away from a team fight. Q harass in lane is also very very strong.

He's the king of sustained caster DPS in a game where burst rules.

He's just king of the wrong castle. He also requires mid-lane to be successful since then he can get his ultimate faster; this denies your carry the mid lane. In a side lane, he's really easily harassed since he's squishy as hell and has no real CC/getaway other than Wall of Pain.

If you ignore a Karthus in favor of the enemy carry, you'll quickly wonder why your entire team just took like 2,000 damage from Karthus's Defile/Lay Waste spam. But at the same time, he has no real burst aside from a few Qs before somebody is on him like stink on ****.

Like I said, he's the king of sustained caster DPS in a game where burst rules.

Elementz, can you please elaborate on Kassadin? How do top Kassadin players build him to put him so high in tier 2? Does his power come from ganking power (but that can be easily countered by wards)? He seems to be a champion that loses steam at endgame, so how can he still remain an asset to his team at the 45 minute mark?

Anyways, thanks!

I find Gragas is not suitable to be built as a pure tank. He doesn't have any stuns so Amumu is much better in 5v5. There is absolutely no reason to build him as a pure tank because his scaling is so good and there is absolutely no reason to build him pure AP because his damage mitigation is so good. building him in the middle lets his little bit of utility and good damage shine through making him a force to be reckoned with.
Would this be your response to my post on Gragas? (pg 544) Seems like it I'm just not sure
