hi im thinking about buying a new champion and its between hecarim and karma

i used hecarim in his last free week and i dominated and carried almost every game i played in that week with him and won getting 15ish kills each game

i have never used karma but i dont have a single support and from what ive heard shes a more offensive support than a "sit back and heal me" type which is good for my playstyle

i have just enough IP for karma but i dont know if i should buy her or wait a buy hecarim since i know im good with him even though i have other people i can go top lane with

also ive heard that theyre going to do a karma re-work but those are just rumors ive read

i am newer to the game being only level 26 so some input from more experienced players would be nice

Karma isn't a top lane champion, really. She's a very niche mid lane/support champ. Not a very good purchase in general since she's definitely a hard champion to master and isn't the strongest champ. Basically low reward for high risk.

Why are you so sure you want to buy Karma? There are a lot of offensive supports as well as the mid laners.

Both are underrated.
Heca is a great jungler and Karma can easily dish out enought damage to kill any opponents.

BUT, she got a damn high skill cap, and unless you are willing to learn a lot I would buy Heca.

Hope this helped.


See you later, armadillos! Unless I see you first!

You already said you did good with Hecarim, so why not him?

Karma is a niche champ and hard to master. If you want a more offensive support, check out Taric and Leona.

Since you like Hec and play him well, I think you should go for him. The only reason I can think of to buy Karma instead is to add a new role or lane position to your arsenal. And even if that's the case, try Karma out with f2p before buying her. No use to risk getting stuck with a champion you might not like. You're paying hard earned points after all.

Hecarim is a great lategame champ.
Karma is a not so good support but an astonishingly good tanky caster with amazing lategame utility, pronlem with her is that tho she has great farming lategame she lacks burst.
I personally love her, but I don't think she's a real good ranked champ.
She's good for trolling enemies tho, expecially against veigar mid and Nasus top, as she can deny them their Q farming whith shield while hitting em like a truck.
Add her passive to all thos, andthere you have the queen of trolling in LoL.

For all you questions about jungling

if you are ok with heca, buy heca. if you have no support, get ali and sona, you'll be fine.

karma is hard to master, i can say by experience, and people easily buy a load of **** to her when she must get full CDR as soon as possible.
