Summoner Spells Back to Top

4.png Flash is a MUST HAVE. You are Karma and you can't move properly without it (or your E).
3.pngAs soon as we are going to rush a support Karma as mid, we don't have enough damage to win a lot of trades, so pick this spell and you can use it to force enemy's flash or even kill him with your jungle.
14.pngI don't like ignite so much but if you are pretty sure you can win early trades pick it but at Teamfights you won't be as useful as if you had Exhaust.
12.pngAs soon as we are not in top this is a bad choice. If you're going to play at that lane it's a must (you will save your team a lot of time with it).

New Runes Back to Top

You can change Conditioning depending on your match up, if the enemy is going to be a hard AD pick Iron Skin. If it's AP, Mirror shell.

Summon%20Aerie.png?width=64 Is our best friend, it'll help us to harass the enemy at lane and we'll protect our allies even more.
The%20Ultimate%20Hat.png?width=64 We'll spam our R so it'll be charged soon and trust me, 18 seconds on your ult will be a spam of R+E.
Transcendence.png?width=64 Even if we pass the CDR cap that'll be useful (and I don't like Celerity on Karma so...).
Gathering%20Storm.png?width=64 The longer the game gets you'll get even more annoying.
Revitalize.png?width=64 More shields and heals, YAY!!
Conditioning.png?width=64 A bit of tankyness. As I said before you can change it for Mirror%20Shell.png?width=64 or Iron%20Skin.png?width=64 depending on your match-up.
Font%20of%20Life.png?width=64 Won't be useful. We're not going tank so it's a bad idea.

PATCH 8.1

I tried recently the second rune page and I really liked it:


Futures%20Market.png?width=64This is so freaking useful; I mean, you will have -50 gold everytime you buy with that lend money but it's not a problem at all (you will reach your build even earlier).

Cosmic%20Insight.png?width=64More CD and 18s lvl 3 ult. At lvl 16 you will spam your shields about a minimum of 3 times in EVERY teamfight.

karmaq.png Our damage spell. It's not a perfect one but it's our unique option to farm and to trade. Don't use it with your R if you're not going to win the trade and the enemy's going to be rooted by your karmaspiritbind.png.
karmaspiritbind.png Perfect to troll enemies with your R. It deals a lot of damage due to his 0.9 scale, no need to upgrade it (and the heal is the same at every level of it and R).
karmasolkimshield.png This is so FREAKING nerfed (come again old Soul shield, COME TO ME). Even with that we can make it a beast with our build. Leveling it up will be at 4 seconds on lvl 5 and the movement speed boost also will be better.
karmamantra.png You know what it is, our option to win. Using R+W or R+E will make us win a lot of trades. R+Q just deals damage and it's not good if you're not confident to root your enemies or you can use it to farm, but never in a Teamfight.

Items Back to Top

Starting Items

    Standard start. This is perfect for every match-up.

Core Items

    This is our core as soon as we're still a mid support. Trust me, it is viable due to Athene's passive. I'll show you how it'll scale.
    If the enemy have a lot of CC, Mercury, if not (or if they have too much AA based champs) Tabi.
    Is a must. Will heal every ally in the area and with our R+E will fit perfectly.

Situational Items

    Is a perfect option if you want to be even more useful at protecting your ADC.
    Yeah, we will use some AA in Teamfights and this will give us more damage.
    Don't be afraid of building it, is perfect in most of the cases if they decide to focus you.
    As a final item is perfect. More AP, more shields.
    Example of full build. Athene's Grial will give us 30 AP + 20 (100% Mana reg) + 30 (150% Mana reg from Redemption) + 10 (50% Mana reg from AC) = 90 AP. Combined with Ardent Ascender it'll be 150 and with our Mastery will be above 200. Thinking about a flat 210 AP (for example) with Rabadon it'll be 330 *1.35 = 445 AP. That'll be translated into 170+222.5 on every E (without modifiers of shields/heals) without Mantra. 392 it's a good shield but we have +25% shields and heals (30% if the ally is low of HP) which works with our Athene's passive and shields. That'll turn into 490 to 509 shields + more than 200 of heal. If we get Mantra, the principal ally can reach more than 1k of shields (don't forget that you still have Solari).

If you take a look, only Rabadon is an expensive Item, the other ones are below 2500 golds in most of cases.

A bit about me Back to Top

Hey, I'm Shaental from EUW and I'm Platinum V at the moment (yeah, not so much but well). When I started to play LoL at the end of the Season 2 I fell in love with that orgasmic lady and her troll passive (that +130 AP was so insane). Later she got an AWFUL relaunch but she was still my champ so I kept playing her until now. I managed to Platinum V from Gold I in just 8-9 games by playing this build and that's the best one right now for her as soon as she's just a... mage-support-tank? I don't know what it is at the moment. The single fact that this build was even better at S7 due to masteries (+18% shields on you, +10% on allies ALWAYS) but it's still viable right now. I want to keep upgrading this guide and I'll try to reach Diamond League with my beloved champ, if you have any question about something of this guide (or any ideas) just let me know !
