So, about that Karma leak...

For me I am thinking that her shining arms is her ulti. Like it's a status buff that gives you perma-mantra for the duration. Which seems interesting.

Just a wild guess though.

Wow, thank you Riot for the traditional skin!

Say what you want about me, but i simply do not like to play as scantily clad women, keep Karma classy!

Though, call me a hypocrite, but that splash art is simply stunning, having the background like that gives the viewer a MUCH better vision of what Ionia is meant to be, rather than Karma's current, cluttered background.

I am very excited about these changes and really hope to find out more soon! (Support-mage? Yes please!)

Karma's back to kick ass and piss off nerds, and she'll soon be outta nerds...

This is Riot being great at what they do and living up to the expectations yet again. Congratulations on the hard work guys!

P.S.: Downvote away nerds!

Hey dudes! As you might know by now, i'm heading up the Karma Relaunch from the design side, and i bring good news - we are changing her kit. While i don't want to go too in-depth just yet, i wanted to drop in to this thread and answer this question, as it's one i've heard a lot and am sure will continue to be a concern.

Karma was re-imagined in our eyes as a support-mage. Think Lux, Morgana, Orianna - the kinds of characters that scale just as well with ability power as they do cooldown reduction and provide a lot to the team in the way of supporting their efforts. As a support-mage, she won't necessarily have the exact same specialized strengths as say Nami or Thresh (who were primarily designed as duo-lane support champions), but brings a mixed bag of damage and utility that we hope will leave you able to affect the outcome of teamfights and skirmishes alike no matter what lane you want to take her.

I'll be back with specifics on her abilities and mechanics as we get closer to her PBE release.


If this is true, I'm very excited. I'm not a fan of champs who's only job is to kill whatever is in sight, but more of a fan of utility-oriented kits. Orianna is probably my favorite mage, so if Karma 2.0 has a mix of utility and damage I'll probably enjoy her a lot.

So.. shes not going to be an actual support anymore. Because other then a couple of people who try to force it to work, how many people actually send Morgana/lux/orianna bot?

Not to complain, just personally, I bought her to be my first support and I don't really ever get to play mid since its such an indemand lane, will this mean that she is going to be like morg, lux, orianna in that she is more of a gimmick bot, then an actual support?

Does this mean, like Lux, Morgana and Oriana, that the new Karma will be viable for mid AP play?

and now she's shaped like most of the other female champions in the game...
...
I wonder a bit now if I'm the one and only person who wishes Gragas or Urgot got rule 63s instead of having different clothes and colours on the exact same girl as often as it happens
