Sooooo. What about her skill set? Instead of saying you are advancing it why not just come right out and tell us what it is? I want to get a general feel of her new kit... hoping its not that different.

So are her prior two skins (Sakura and Sun Goddess) also getting the sash/wrap/loincloth treatment, or will she keep a gown for variety's sake?

Yep, just bought her with IP.
Undercover massive Karma Sale Conspiracy? I think so.

I actually thought Karma was particularly solid in this regard. I'm also a bit scared that "badass" is being used to describe the fan-wielding master of inner peace and balance that I'm used to.

This (and the new VO) sound promising, though!

I'd argue she lost that when she could no longer shield wards. Ward bombing was pretty awesome.

Is this rework purely aesthetic or are we actually going to see a rework to her ability kit or just an updated look? It's really hard to tell from the post Morello made.

At first I thought it was going to be a complete rework but the more I read, the more it's looking to be more of a model makeover and nothing more. Would love to get some clarification.

Is she going to be primarily a support or is she also an AP carry now too?

Please tell me she can be played effectively as a carry. I don't want to be forced to play her in one role in one lane.
