How can I prove, then, that I'm not just someone who bought Karma just for the skin, and that I'm actually a 'Karma faithful'?

I need to prove my hipsterness, dammit!

it's not too bad. I myself like the fans. they gave her a unique look that you don't find on other champs. That mantra system needs to go for sure. it's pretty garbage.

Thank you so much for these insights! It's really cool to see your reasons for making the decisions made. I like much of what I'm seeing, especially the particle effect changes. I also agree that her fans didn't really seem to do much to convey her character, and her dress was perhaps too impractical. However, I feel as though she isn't as elegant and classy as she was before, and has lost a good amount of her mystic mage appearance. Instead, she's showing a lot more skin, and she looks like a martial artist/monk with some magic, like an arcane version of Udyr or Lee. Such a character could be interesting, sure, but is it Karma?

Have both of her prior skins been given this shawl/wrap/loincloth look, or is there one that keeps the dress vibe for variety's sake?

Riot...you guys are just awesome! As someone who has owned Karma since the moment she was first released, I can't find a satisfactory way of expressing just how overjoyed and grateful I am!

TY TY TY!!!!!! <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3

I assume she is being driven towards the role of a support akin to Janna and Sona, or more of a magey support like Lulu or Zyra? Or a passive like Soraka?

People that own Karma now get to keep the traditional skin. I approve, but I think it'd also be a nice gesture that the traditional skin should keep the original voice over. Just an idea, but I think it'd be cool for fans of the existing Karma can keep her as intact as possible.

Wait so karma gets a new skin and keeps her current one or does the new one replace her current one?
