I'm a little skeptical on this rework.... I was sorta hoping she would stay more of a support, but instead a "Support Mage" like Lux, Morg, Ori?
I'm also worried about her new lore.

Quote:
The ongoing struggle has taken its toll on Karma's calm, composed demeanor.
I hope this doesn't get overdone and she doesn't turn into some sort of rage-monster, I also miss her fans, and I still hope Janna was her mentor at some point.
Eh, I was probably getting ahead of myself, when I heard "rework" I just sorta thought "Oh, they'll change up her abilities, like rework the R+Q and R+E from "damage and heal" on Q to "Heal and Resist Buff" for Q+R and E can stay a shield with some damage and R+E can be an aoe shield for all allies in the "damage" area. Then make the speed buff/slow easier by having R+W let you use two chains, so you could choose to speed two allies, slow two enemies, or one of each, instead of having to speed/slow one person and dance around hoping to speed someone by catching them in that thread. Probably woulda been good vs aoe comps by chaining R+E and R+Q with solari locket and bulwark.

Maybe I'll like it, maybe I won't, my biggest concern is that she wont be able to support anymore, and will instead just get exiled to middle. Not just because I like having new supports, but because she always felt like less the straight up killer type and more of the "Hey, you're in trouble, let me help you" type. Hopefully she won't be completely like Lux, Ori, and Morg in the respect that she's thrown in mid and just HAPPENS to have a shield and some CC.

Thank you for letting us keep the old Karma skin, it is my favorite. Also, Karma 2016.

This announcement is hilarious since it forced me not to pick up Akali with IP and Nurse Akali with RP since this way I get Karma and a skin for 3150 IP, and Karma is turning into a support mage which I like.

"Weve also taken her Ionian ties a step further: her magic springs from the crest of twin dragons in her mantle, literally and figuratively transforming her into a symbol of her homeland."

Wait, so her ult turns her into a dragon?

I need to know!

Scarizard pls!

I appreciate the fact that riot has devoted so much time to this rework and karma. Although it does pull away from the current karma we have I don't view it as a bad change. I played her on a different account long before and I did enjoy her but I only just recently bought her on my current account because I was holding out for the promise of her rework. And now that this has come out I can honestly say I'm happy and if riot is so devoted to maintaining her and advancing her as well, I'm willing to wait and have faith in their goals for her rework. Thanks for listening riot and reworking such a deserving champion.
