Karma Matchups Overview

Karma General information

Karma tips and tricks

Aim your Inner FlameQ so it hits the enemy and the minion wave together so it pushes the minion wave and pokes the enemy at the same time.

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.
