Goodnight dude, I'll be off soon as well!

EDIT: Downvote me because I say goodnight to someone - you have quite some humour, mysterious downvoter!

let's leave her name for a moment. her title is the Enlightened One. which directs to her having some supernatural powers. from her splash we see that she's like meditating, calm posture, energy around her palms, the garb to emphesize her status, the dragons to emphesize her mental balance, we getting that's she a spiritual leader. now if she's a spiritual leader she supposed to protect her allies but she also have power to fight and stand for herself in a difficult situation and that's what her skillset actually does

Yet if you tell a new player 'this kit is all about being a spiritual leader' you aren't really helping him in any way.

If you tell the player 'this kit is all about redirecting anything you throw at the target' you are giving him an idea of what the kit is all about instantly.

You keep on defending Riot's choice - I'm going to repeat: They want the most thematically tied and readable character as possible.

With your own posts (such as the one saying 'omg how am i supposed to explain, read the lore of karma!) you have confirmed 'Spiritual leader' is indeed a very weird and abstract and thus unreadable theme, so they could've chosen for 'Karma' instead to make a more readable design.

Yet again - it's living up to their own standards of making a good design - making the design as good as it can be when it comes to theme, readability and counterplay.

Currently, readability is not fixed with this rework - hence I'm complaining, do you understand that? I'm not asking you 'why her kit does represent being a spiritual leader'

I'm asking you to understand that 'karma' is a WAY more readable theme to convert to a kit than 'spiritual leader' which eventually makes the theme 'karma' healthier for the game.

EDIT: I'm not entirely sure why you would possibly downvote this - it are Riot's own words to strive for a champion that is tied to theme and is as readable as possible - in this post I explain how they could have made it way more readable because currently it's extremely abstract and I get a downvote.

I'm welcome! I guess.
