Considering there is no Champion Spotlight on Karthus and no one really plays him anymore(After the massive Requiem/Wall of Pain nerf) I need to know what Runes and Masteries to build. Anyone got any good ones?(Tier 3 runes)

Quints - R
Glyphs - R
Marks - R
Seals - R



But in all seriousness regular caster runes would work fine I would think.

You get ArPen now, since they removed Armor shred from his W.

Runes:

  1. 9x Magic Penetration marks
  2. 9x AP per level seals
  3. 9x AP per level glyphs
  4. 3x Flat AP quintessences

Masteries:
21-0-9 (Look at the attached image to know where to put points in)


Please do remember to build a **** ton of mana (Tear second item and an early rod of ages), otherwise you will find yourself running out during fights.

I'm pretty awful but my karthus setup is flat ap quints and blues, mr yellows, and mpen reds, which i think is pretty standard. If you're a more aggresive karthus (i.e. you build mejais), i would replace some of the mpen reds or yellows with more ap. You can also replace the blue with mr per level if you want an even safer lane.

For masteries i take the standard 21 into offense, then I spec 9 into defense, taking veteran's scars. You can put the 9 into the extra buff duration in utility if you want, but I don't play a very blue-reliant karthus.
