Guide to Countering Karma as Elise

Tips for Playing as Elise against Karma

Elise's Spider Form and Spider Form abilities do not cost mana and can be prioritized when you are trying to conserve mana.

When in Spider Form, Spiderlings will attack the target that Elise uses Venomous Bite on.

Spider Form is most effective at finishing off enemies with low health; Human Form's Neurotoxin does more damage to healthy foes.

Advice to Win Against Karma

Karma's passive lowers her Mantra cooldown when she hits enemy champions with abilities and basic attacks. Deny her from getting free hits on you.

Karma's Soulflare erupts for bonus damage in the area in which it's placed. React quickly and escape the circle to avoid taking heavy damage.

Focused Resolve is a strong disengage tool. Create distance to avoid being rooted and seek to engage afterwards.

Who is Better, Elise or Karma?

While Elise does have a lower winrate compared to Karma, when on opposite teams, Elise also has a much greater level of difficulty that makes her a more challenging character to learn and master. You should be careful when picking Elise into Karmaas her relative depth means that you may not be able to reach her full potential without a significant amount of practice beforehand.

Furthermore, Elise has only a small amount of utility and CC, a similar amount to Karma. This often makes her just as valuable during teamfights, especially when fighting champions with a ton of burst damage.

While there is not a single best champion in League of Legends, in Elise vs Karma matchups, Karma is the better champ with a lower win rate, more champion depth, and a similar amount of utility to help out your allied champions during team fights.

Elise is a somewhat poor counter to Karma. Make sure you focus your actions on keeping up your gold income and taking out objectives. If you can do that, you should hold your own as Elise against Karma.
