Karma Matchups Overview

Karma General information

Karma tips and tricks

In team fights, use your empowered InspireE rather than your empowered Inner FlameQ as the shield is more valuable in a team fight.

Try and poke the enemy down as much as possible with your Inner FlameQ in the early game. Use your level 1 ability advantage to get a lot of damage down early.

When playing against hard engage level 1 champions like Nautilus, Thresh, Alistar, Blitzcrank do not start Inner FlameQ. Starting InspireE is a better- safer option.
