I have heard that she is, but that she just does not fit in the meta. She seems cool, and I've been thinking about buying her. But first, I want to know from you all if she is good right now and if so, in what role?

Yes, also the most fun champ in the game to master, and rape with.

As long as you know when to pick her and what team comps she fits into. Her heal is a %health missing heal and her shield needs to have a target if it's going to be mantra bombed. Meaning her kit has potential with team mates who have High HP or are very tanky and get right into the middle of the fight on the front line.

THink of champions like Nasus, Irelia, Mordekaiser, Nocturne Xin those champs are great team mates, they either have gap closers or just get all up in there...

If you plan on 0 CS supporting with Karma do not spam your heal ever , just mitigate with your sheild it happens to be the strongest physical damage sheild in the game. You can also deprive enemy's of last hits by sheilding your creeps.

She is good if you have time to practice with her. Her early game is usually an AP casting mage so mid lane would be good for her. Mid-game she ties into AP/Support her heal works well on tanks but not well on low hp carries since it works as a flat amount 35 / 55 / 75 / 95 / 115 / 135 +5% + X% missing (Scales off AP 1% per 50AP above 25AP). Then not to also forgot the heal also does damage to foes in the cone also thus making it a nice team fight move.

Then her ability 'Inner Flame' makes her even more deadly since Karma gains up to 30 / 50 / 70 / 90 / 110 / 130 increased ability power corresponding to her percentage of missing health. So that makes her heal/shield/spell that more powerful when she's harrased.

The only problem however is people don't play her competitively since there are better champions to pick and fill a specific role since karma tends to fill many roles and others don't know how to play with a karma since they sometimes lacks knowledge of her. However I think the 'better' champions are usually picked for a few reasons:

1 - Usually overpowered no matter how much everyone wants to be blind to it. Plain and simple they are just to unbalanced for other champions who are good to compete.

2 - Other champions are just sub-par and need a tiny fix or major overhaul. Karma for example is balanced on her overall kit but some karma players (few and far inbetween) find that she would be a bit better if her spells scaled better than level 5 type spells since her 'Ultimate' only modifies her 3 skills. Then also giving karma 3 mantra charges instead of two would also help.

3 - People simply are sheep and follow what "Pro Players" do. In most cases you can tell this is the problem but you can't really fix it.

she needs farm so I'd say she is good top or mid. I play her as support karma alot (0 cs) but often it takes until late game or atleast a few items to get strong. That said, she is probably the strongest late game support

Her status at the moment is considered poor by the majority of people. Not saying I agree, but a lot of people view her as a subpar support and AP.


Regardless, isn't she getting reworked anyways? (According to Guinsoo.)
