Play

 
  
 

Karma is on-line totally awesome



with melee champions [Xin Zhao, Shaco, Master Yi,...]. She can shield them with E and simultaneously deal DMG around them. Moreover she can heal them with combinate Q and R so u can to play her as AP support too. This guide is good on mid too because she always can spam her E over minions to deal DMG to enemy champion. If u play Karma at mid dont forgot for her W ! Always use it on enemy champion to slow him and if u can, u can to go to him faster and deal him DMG with Q and R+E.

Counter

What about COUNTERpick?



Counter pick against Karma are Vladimir, LeBlanc and Orianna. Karma is counter pick against Akali and other melee invisibility champions as Evelynn. Because Karma have small range of skills is against her good each champion with big range.

What items to do against Karma?



Counter item for Karma is undoubtedly Banshee's Veil! This make u imune against her slow and if u need it u can without bigger problems run away. In lategame is her slow very OP because in teamfights is it inconspicuous. Enemies take DMG from u without noticed.

Items - Beginning

 
 

Sapphire Crystal


This is very good item in begginning of the game. It gives u more mana and u can more heal your allies and more spam to enemies. Moreover u need Sapphire crystal to make Rod of Ages.
______________________________________________________________________________________________ 
 

Boots of speed


This is just for bigger speed .. nothing special. If u are on mid u have to buy as first Boots of speed and then continue in this item guide. If u are on mid without boots, u are easy target for gank and easykill.

______________________________________________________________________________________________

Potions and Wards



buy as u need. If u play Karma as AP support look at this link.. When u are on mid, dont forgot ward ! No warding = 100% gank.

Items - Lategame

 
 

Rod of Ages


Is very important make this item as soon is possible. I make this item befor Ionian boots because Rod of Ages have stack and this is OP item in earlygame for AP champions.


______________________________________________________________________________________________
  
 

Ionian Boots od Lucidity


If you dont have 1000+ AP, you need this boots. Thanks this cd reduction u can make in teamfights bigger chaos than u think.

______________________________________________________________________________________________
  
 

Rylai's Crystal scepter


Just make it for more kills and slow enemies. It's also supply of healt and AP.

______________________________________________________________________________________________
  
 

Rabadon's Deathcap


This item make only for more AP. Nothing special. It's very good for AP because of this passive (u get 30% more AP)

______________________________________________________________________________________________
  
 

Archangel's Staff


It's good for Karma because she needs Frozen Heart. With mana from Frozen Heart and Rod of Ages it gives u a bit AP.

______________________________________________________________________________________________
  
 

Frozen Heart


Make for slow enemies Attack speed and for more mana. It's a little protection against AD carry because it gives 99Armor. It's very useful in teamfights!

Other items which u can to make


 
 
  
 

Abyssal Scepter


You can to make this because of that aura which reduces nearby enemy champions magic resist.

______________________________________________________________________________________________
  
 

Deathfire Grasp


This u can to make if in enemy team are a lot of carries. Moreover it gives u cd reduction.

______________________________________________________________________________________________
  
 

Void Staff


Magic penetration is useful and if is it necessary u can to buy Void staff.

Skill Sequence

As first u can improve Q or E.

When improve Q??


U should improve Q when u are on line with AP melee/range champion. [Katarina,...] In this case u are the champion which has to spam and deal DMG. If u are on mid, u have to improve Q too. On mid is it predominantly about farm. And Q is for farm very useful.


When improve E??


U have to improve E when u are on line with melee AD champion. He needs shield and if u deal DMG around him it's only good. On mid is it good against melee champions because u can to spam over minions R+E and deal DMG to enemy champion.

COMBINATE SKILLS WITH ULTIMATE !!!

That's the most important thing for Karma. If u need speed use R and then W on some unit.If u need heal, heal yourself with R and Q. And if u need shield and kill enemy use R and E !! It's EASY!

Runes

I have runes for full AP at lvl 1 [36AP]
It's good cuz u give bigger shield and u heal more and that's necessary in earlygame.

Runes cost :



Mark  :  9x 410 IP  --
Seal  :  9x 410 IP  --
Glyph  :  9x 410 IP  --
Quint  :  3x 1025 IP  --

Total cost : 14 145 IP

Farming

Karma has very easy farming in lategame .. she can kill all minions around her only with R+E. In early game she has to lasthit minions. I always use W on the strongest minion and then only use R+E and Q for kill other minions. Farm is very important for Karma because she dont have a lot of kills in earlygame. Never forgot :) Farm = gold = items = DMG = Kills = Ace = Win !!
