Karthus usually has a similar longest killing spree as his counter does. Typically, Karthus receives less damage than Renekton. This is usually reflective of different amounts of tankyness; however, it can also show that the one champion has less mobility and thus is not able to escape further damage when engaged or poked.

Karthus often racks up many fewer minion kills than Renekton. Champions that don't get a lot of minion kills normally do not need much CS to be useful. Instead, they are able to scale properly off of their skills and stats alone. However, champs with scores of minion kills, such as carries, usually require a lot of items to be effective. In either case, try to pass the averages shown here to do well.
