No one seems to understand the power of lay waste as a harassment spell, trust me. If you can aim with it, your opponent can't do anything back.
Then ofc when you hit level 6, Karthus can score kills from low hp champs or help alot in 2v2 fight.
I agree, to a point. Even as a super aggressive MFing Cho'Gath, I end up having trouble will a well played Karthas. My only real reprieve is sticking huddled into my own creep so they crunch down the damage of lay waste, but by the time I get feast stacks it's almost impossible. He may be squishy and slow, but the spammage lay waste offers is ******ed. I usually just end up trying to out-fat their mana, but more often then not they have to choose between harassing me and making duckets, which I'm fine with.
Still, between a well played Karthas, and a well played Jax/Trynd, I'd take the melee dodgebags any day.
