Do you think Karthus should be nerfed?

-global ult
-can win team fights by running into the middle of everyone
-highest DPS of all casters
-can feed several kills and still be useful as long as somewhat farmed

You see what I'm getting at. Do you think Riot should tone him down a bit?

No. He's an ult on a stick and requires way too much skill to be good.

i think they should nerf his passive into oblivion but compensate him in other ways so that mindless suicide karthus isn't rewarded but landing lay waste efficiently is.

His other passive is what defines him actually, without the mp return karthus wouldn't exist.

Nerf him AGAIN? No.

thought he had the 3rd highest sustained dps, or am I getting the 3 from viktor being the 3rd highest burst? erm, **** if I remember

anyways I'm pretty sure he didn't have the highest sustained dps, just pretty close to it

or I might be super wrong

Nah, I love facing all the squishy Karthuses mid. Super easy to crush.

I'm assuming he has the highest theoretical DPS since you would have to land every single Q you possibly can to get something like that.

I think his abilities should only cause 50% damage during his passive, or at least cost mana. I think dying should be special for him, being some sort of Lich, but it shouldn't have him at full power. In some ways it's more than full power, since he trades mobility in order to become manaless and immune to CC.

Living Karthus is perfectly balanced though. The one that needs to have good positioning and maintain mana via defile.

He's perfectly balanced and no more OP than kogmaw.
