Karthus, the Deathsinger is a champion in League of Legends [1].

Abilities

Death Defied
Death Defied

Upon dying, Karthus enters a spirit form and becomes invulnerable and untargetable, allowing him to continue casting spells at no cost for 7 seconds.

Ability Details
Death Defied is a self-targeted death innate.

Additional Information:

  • Karthus cannot use basic attacks or summoner spells while in the Death Defied state.
  • Defile.png Defile will automatically be toggled on if Karthus has at least one rank in the ability, and it cannot be toggled off for the duration.
  • Death Defied occupies the lowest possible priority for effects that trigger upon death. As such, it will always trigger after effects such as Guardian Angel item.png Guardian Angel's or YorickSquare.png Yorick's Omen of Death.png Omen of Death.
  • Karthus will still benefit from cooldown reduction during Death Defied's duration.
  • Death Defied will still trigger if Karthus is killed by the Nexus Obelisk.

Additional Information:

  • Requiem's impending damage is shown to enemies by a large beam of greenish light coming from the sky during the channel.
    • Champions who were untargetable when the channel begins will not have this beam show for them, but will still take damage when it ends (should they become targetable in the meantime).
  • Champions who are untargetable when the channel ends do not have any damage dealt to them.
  • If Requiem's channel is interrupted in some fashion, the ability's cooldown is still applied in full and the mana cost is not refunded.
