The best midlane skirmisher in my opinion.

Quick Karma AP Build
Who am I ?
I'm a solo lane karma player who plays her the role she was designed as, which is also her strongest role, im one of the few players that probs exist of her very kind, cause there isnt many of us.
My Name is NiveaCream a Karma otp for most, who also occasionally plays zilean and other off meta things, ive peaked master (EUW) with karma, but continuning to struggle at times in ranked.
Since karma has very high Armour growth, I dont even go armour runes in most matchups, so therefore i go magic resist if needed.
I never go resolve second, unless not going full AP, otherwise its useless in my mindset, But when ya can get access to more spammable abilties which is what ur reliant on as of now.
Font of life is only used cause of helios of echo.
- The general roamer
- poke yet efficient
- FULL AP
Mainly going ignite or exhaust these days, exhaust helps me cripple some of their carries dmg, whilst ignite would give me more early domination as I roam to lanes to gurantee a kill with it, pick wisely.
Most of these sets will be the same depending on the situation in the game, so therefore ive been picking it up lately in my games as we speak.
For most karma is very reliant on cheap items which is what mostly makes her a good champion, and it does not take a whole lot for her to spam her abilitise, so therefore going ionian boots as a first item is what you could go, cause it gives her so much value.
And if you really want to dish out dmg, I made a very fun Liandries build down below for those who are interested, since karma has very low ratios, stacking magic pen is thee way for success.
Especially in lower elo, you just need to go a dmg path... you cant really carry with enchanter karma unless ur duoing.

Matchups and Synergies
i have some bits scattered around but hopefully this is edible information.
if anything ill add more champions, there is so many and i pretty much write the same about almost every one of em
Plus most of the mage matchups are the same, its quite safe or way too safe with some. Or you get outranged or outzoned.
- Generalised hatred
- Assasins matchups
Not a very fun matchup, he can push you out of the lane if he knows what his doing, you can barely get close to him as well so therefore i kinda hate him since he pretty much outscales you no matter what.
Decent matchup but id rather just not deal with him at all, if nobody deals with him he will pretty much win by default cause karma cant do a whole lot to him at a certain point in the game.
His quite annoying, he counters you're W as well, and can burst ya down quite easily, quite a threat if im honest if ur unfamiliar with his laning phase.
yeah.. just an insta ban for me nothing more to be said, he has more range then you and just bursts ya down immediatly so yeah a huge counter to karma.
This just kills her as a whole champion, hence why its so strong against her and that makes karma already more worse than she already is.
You have more early power, so u can easily poke him to death and push him under turret hence why i favour this matchup.
Same as zed, not the hardest champion to play against cause of karmas early laning power you're able to dish out but still a threat if she gets ahead in the early too quickly...
Pretty much a skill matchup, who can dodge who's abilities, but she isnt much of a threat, she's quite a safe pick against karma cause of her ultimate, so she can get out of the sight from ur jungler to.
quite annoying if im honest, but can be pushed under turret if ur agro enough so be sure to q him to death other than that I dont dislike him that much.
This matchup isnt my favourite, but he cant really use karma's abilites that well, but with sylas u gotta use minions and some good distance since he can burst ya down very quickly so quite thee threat in some cases.
He's alright, i dont see him as a big deal when ya can easily push him under turret in the early plus you outsustain him with RW so be sure to use that when dueling against him.
Not a big deal, just push her under turret and you're good.
She's okay, u can poke her out of her lane as well so not a big deal.
pretty safe, its quite hard to get near a good orianna player since their ball is constantly zoning you but overall not a big deal if ur careful
If she burns her abilites you're free to to whatever you want against her thats how easy it with her for most part.
(I had a game a lux player was so scared of me they wouldnt even come to lane they even called me monster ;_; )
She's quite annoying, but it is possible to poke her down before she gets 6 otherwise she outscales ya quite easily.
skill matchup for most, who gets outpoked out of the lane early on, but overall a little tough to bare cause he has so much more range than you.
you pretty much counter taliyah, cause u dont dash at all, but can zoom around with E to kite her and W - RQ her with a couple of autos.
This was it for now!
Hopefully this will help you all going her mid <3
