Karma Relaunch Heading to PBE

We’ve talked a lot about giving Karma a complete overhaul, and we’re ready to discuss her changes. Karma’s relaunch is the real deal, covering her art, abilities and lore for a total renovation. We know she’s been the source of a lot of contention since her launch, but we also know that she’s got a cult following of Karma diehards. Here’s an overview of why we think she needs a rework.



Karma’s aesthetics are confusing. While she looks cool, it’s difficult to read her role at face value. Grumpy Monkey has provided more info for you on Karma’s look. We’ve also seen players eschew her support role for bursty mage gameplay, so we seized this opportunity to give Karma more options in lane. Scarizard has talked more on Karma’s evolving mechanics. We also think that Karma needs a new story that suits her updated abilities and aesthetics. RiotRunaan has taken you through Karma’s transformation into an unstoppable Ionian leader.

For Karma diehards, we have a special treat – we’ll be giving those of you who’ve unlocked Karma a skin based on her traditional look.



Karma’s getting an extended PBE stay so we can thoroughly test her new gameplay and incorporate your feedback.

Karma at last! One less champion out of the pool of 'pick and get reported', and into the pool of coolness.

I think the new Karma skin should be only given to those who bought Karma a year ago or some some time ago.

I don't enjoy that it will be given to everyone since everyone will now start buying it today and eventually the skin will lose its uniqueness and become pointless. Meh.

The thing with Karma is that she is an Ap mid that then transitions to support late game with some shiny skills, Also really she needs to be in organised play to make her work and requires far too much celestial alignment. Hopefully her support role will be much better this time round.
