As a Karma player myself, the biggest problems that I saw with her was her short range and her lack of consistent damage in team fights due to her main damage ability needing mantra charges. How are these changes going to address these problems? If anything I can only see this as an overall nerf to Karma, unless the CD on mantra has been GREATLY reduced.

Love it, have to say I kinda liked the old look but I am so revved up to see how she looks in the final stages. Also, props to Riot for releasing that free skin for the karma owners, I am so looking forward to that, I kinda like it more then the original rework skin because I like blue more I guess ^v^ yay. I am gonna pick her up ASAP as soon as she's updated.

Her fans, dress and posture didn’t reflect her playstyle or storyline. There was a lot we could change about Karma to bring a more cohesive vision to the character.
Her previous aesthetic valued subtly and sophistication as more important than flashiness and cheap doses of *** appeal. And it spoke volumes about her character in comparison to the rest of the league. What was wrong with that? Is it so wrong to want ONE champion that makes maturity and sophistication the character's leading traits. Some of us are capable of handling subtly you know.


Also. Why does her tether have to be a slightly tweaked version of LeBlanc's chain? Please forgive my lack of eloquence here but... Please don't make her tether another version of LeBlanc and Morgana's abilities! Isn't there anything more unique you can come up with!?

She seems like she could be a real offensive poke support like Lulu.

Can we get a guestimate on when this will be out? I want to mark my calendar.

I like the new kit, except for Gathering Fire. I don't understand why it isn't simply part of Mantra's effects. Wouldn't making the cooldown refund an inherent part of Mantra and giving her a different passive be better?

What about the loss of the original Inner Flame, the bonus AP when damaged. It had a really nice defiance in the face of defeat flavor which I think would be a great fit with this new kit/background.

Does Karma have a "second set of cooldowns" upon using Mantra like Rengar?

They call me Karma because I control your quality of life
Think no one plays me?
My popularity has no equal
I got the most fans in the whole league and they're all lethal
So bring your whole clan and your family and we'll brawl people
I kill Noxians from a sound sleep cause' they're all feeble
It may be harsh, but we're past negotiation
I was prepared to tolerate everything short of a full invasion
Killed most of my village and I'm here to balance the equation
Not a Natural warrior but you forced me to defend my nation
And on occasion I might even enjoy it a bit
cause no matter what you do we'll always have our spirit
My strength lies in my brethren and I'm happy to lead'em
Cause you can take our lives, but you can never take our freedom
Not here to weather the storms I'm here to calm them
And if your team's around you should alarm them
Our victory is assured I got a plan
I'm farmed up and it's about to hit the fan
My power's a secret, quiet agent of aggression
You can call me Bond, Spirit Bond 007
I can play multiple lanes so I use my discretion
but no matter where I end up you end up in depression
cause you can try to kill me, but failure is assured
the more health I lose, the more my shield endures
and if you try to dive me, well I'll just wave politely
Use a mantra charge, and live everytime while your death is likely
That was embarassing, I bet your team reports you
It looked pretty intentional, it was so easy to thwart you
I know you rarely see me but you could look me up
You play like you've got the brain capacity of a dixie cup
I'm so enlightened I'm pretty sure I flouresce
You need to borrow some gold? Seems I have an excess
Now that I'm fed there's absolutely no stress
I can't believe how easy it was to destroy you in this ridiculous dress
Not here to weather the storms I'm here to calm them
And if your team's around you should alarm them
Our victory is assured I got a plan
I'm farmed up and it's about to hit the fan

If you want riot To Keep the FANS! In some form or another, taunt, joke, recall, dance, revival then please keep posting. Riot doesnt understand that the FANS she holds are a symbol of all of the old Karma Players! Because we are The FANS. If you know the song lyrics by badministrator called hit the fan posted above, then you are in the cult of Karma DieHards! Keep the fans in some form Riot, we supported what many called an unfinished champion for 2 years, so please make this sacrifice for us and show us you support the minority of us as well!
Guys, you got to stop with this mindless "Karma Fan Army".
I started to play when Karma was in the store. I bought her at day 1. I loved her (still do), but loving someone means understanding the good and the bad sides. And Karma was a trainwreck from a design standpoint.
Do i love her current design? I love the ideas that are behind it, but I could love it more. The rework is doing exactly this: it's removing the useless and improving on the core of Karma.
She's more than a passive and a bunch of fans.
She's a warrior of balance and elegance, and she will still be that.
