Karthus Stats

Pantheon often has a similar longest killing spree as his opponent does. On average, Pantheon takes a similar amount of damage to Karthus. This is usually reflective of differing health capacities; however, it can also illustrate that the champion with increased health has less mobility and thus is not able to escape further harm when engaged or poked.

Pantheon typically racks up a similar number of minion kills than Karthus. Champions that don't amass a lot of minion kills usually do not need much CS to be effective. They are capable of scaling well off of their skills and stats alone. However, champs with tons of CS, such as ADCs, typically require a lot of items to be useful. In either situation, work to pass the averages shown here to do well.
