Not Updated For Current Season

The masteries shown here are not yet updated for the current season, the guide author needs to set up the new masteries. As such, they will be different than the masteries you see in-game.

Introduction

Welcome to my guide for Karma, the Enlightened One.

Karma was the first champion I ever played with.
I played her as a support in the botlane, and later on I played the midlane.
I have seen that people play her in toplane too, so I tried and looked what items and build would be nice to play with in the toplane.

I hope you guys enjoy my guide, and if you think something is not right, you can always correct me! :)

Runes

I just go for flat runes.

Marks: Magic Penetration ( Karma uses magic, so this is are good runes to give her attacks more magical damage )
Seals: I always take flat armor runes, because I think that she needs a little bit defense to survive.
Glyphs: If you are not magic resist, you enemy could blow you off the lane with their magical damage, so it's important to have some of those runes.
Quints: Karma is an AP-based champion, so you can take AP Quints, or if you want to try, you can use Spellvamp (I don't have these yet, so I don't know if it works good on Karma)

Masteries

I take the masteries in AP-form. (21/0/9)

Karma gets an AP-burst if you have the right items,runes and masteries.

In Utility I have chosen Runic Affinity because if you take a blue buff,
Karma will be stronger and the blue buff lasts longer so you won't be out of mana so fast.

Pros / Cons

Pros:
- Good farm
- Her E gives her a shield and movement speed to escape
- She can be very powerful with the right items
- She's got her ultimate at level 1
- Low cooldown
- She can poke wirh her R+Q

Cons:
- If you miss your Q, you can lose the fight
- If you get behind early, you get raped in your lane
- She is not a fighter, so protecting your lane would be hard if your team is dead
