Karma is one of my fav champs, and I always roll over people with her, I solo'd a nocturn on bot when my ad ran off to mid, and I kicked his ass, he wasn't expecting the shield nukes to hurt him that badly. She is so satisfactory to play, especially when everyone says she sucks and you stomp them throughout the game.
I have played her mid before, but I had an ashe there and since she was ad it was a bit harder, but I still dominated the lane in the end. She definitely does not need a rework, hell she doesn't even need buffs, people just need to stop thinking she's a normal support because she is far from it. I have support-ish masteries on her, but instead of the defensive part of the masteries that I have for people like sona, I put it on AP just like an ap carry would and she absolutely destroys - the only thing is, she unfortunately doesn't fit the meta's idea of supports...
your expected to just let the carry get all the gold, but since you need to build Karma as a semi-carry, you really need some too. I usually go for athenes unholy grail (starting with meki) or go for morello's tome if they have a regen tank, after that it's usually arch angels and then stacking mana because she does eat it away pretty fast, and ofc you need to get cdr when you can. Very expensive items to try and build towards early game if your trying to just let the carry get all the gold, and "gold per" items have been nerfed so.... that's definitely out of question for her type of build.
She's an exceptional character, she just doesn't fit the meta very well, hopefully the rework that she's getting wont change her amazing abilities too much, and just add some method for her to be just as good without as much gold - so she can fit the meta better. From what I hear she's getting a knock-back and a silence of some sort, sounds interesting to say the least
