The main path for the champion Karthus is Domination. In it, you will need to choose one keystone rune, as well as three additional ones with less influence.

Dark Harvest is used as the keystone rune. With its help Karthus will be able to truly dominate opponents. The rune deals additional damage to enemies whose health is below 40% and reaps their souls, permanently increasing their damage. The more pressure you create, the more benefits it will bring.

Cheap Shot will serve as a constant source of additional damage to enemies after applying any control to them. Eyeball Collection is a faithful companion of an aggressive player, as it enhances snowball due to an increase in attack damage or ability power when killing opponents. Ultimate Hunter will allow you to use the ultimate as often as possible.

The secondary path is Sorcery. Here you need to choose two additional runes for Karthus.

Absolute Focus will maximize the advantage over the opponent thanks to additional stats when your level of health is high. Gathering Storm will allow you to take up the enemy in long games thanks to a large amount of attack damage or ability power.
