"League of Legends" could soon release some massive hero adjustments that would make Karma a support champion, again. Karma has been one of the most flexible AP (Ability Power) heroes for the past few years.

Riot Games' fans have been using her in top, mid, and bottom lanes. Although most gamers are still relying on her skills, building magic items, some of them still tried to be more creative.
They made her a full-AP tank hero, as well as an AD champion. Now, the giant title publisher said that players might soon be unable to do this since the major adjustments could make her a full-support character.
In the current "League of Legends" Patch 11.15, Karma dominates the solo queue with a 91.2% play rate, as well as a 47.73% win rate. On the other hand, her top and mid-lane pick rates received a 4.1% chance, with a win chance of 47%.
'League of Legends' To Make Karma a Full-Support Hero?
According to Dexerto's latest report, Riot Games release some massive champion adjustments for Karma this coming "League of Legends" Patch 11.16. The game publisher added that these changes would make her strong in the early games.

On the other hand, some title critics compared the hero adjustments to those received by Irelia. Aside from this, similar changes are also expected to arrive for Gangplank.
First, Riot Games said that Karma's passive ability called Gathering Fire would have a reduced Mantra cooldown. This update will be applicable when her passive skill hits an enemy hero.
But, the title creator said that the cooldown reduction would be significantly buffed, starting at 5 seconds per ability hit and scaling to 7 seconds by level 18.
Aside from her Gathering Fire, she will also receive some adjustments on the following skills:
