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.
This is my first build up on MobaFire. Working on a write up. Try before you vote please.
There are two Karma Builds located in this build. The first is a more mana friendly early game thanks to the new patch, this is the one I play more. However if you want to go a more Nuke, with less regards to mana the 2nd is also viable
Inner Flame (Innate): Karma gains up to 30 / 50 / 70 / 90 / 110 / 130 increased ability power corresponding to her percentage of missing health.

Heavenly Wave (Active): Karma sends forth a wave of hidden blades from her fans, dealing magic damage to units in a cone in front of her.

Pros / Cons
-Good Lane Sustainability
-Decent Burst (with CDR)
-Long Cool Downs
-Mantra only stacks up to 2 (somewhat long recharge time imo)
Your job in team fights is protection and support. Although you are building an AP Carry build, the best way to use your abilities are with Mantra. This allows your shield to do a ton of damage.
Some Key Things to do:
Mantra, Cast Sheild on a Squishy or Tank that is in the middle of the battle.
Mantra, Cast Wave with your teammates in front of you, so that they benefit from the healing properties
Slow down enemies that try to run away. Or Speed up allies to catch enemies or get away if your loosing.
In the lane, often use Mantra. I would say save try to have one stack at all times while laning, in case of a gank attempt.
Use your mantra and sheild + wave combo to take on an entire minion wave. If there are some minions already weak, just use the mantra+sheild combo and watch the gold pour in.
Blue Golem buff is extremely good for Karma. Get it often when its up.
