Guide to Countering Ashe as Karma

Tips for Playing as Karma against Ashe

Don't be too conservative with Mantra. Gathering Fire is strongest in teamfights, making it easy to recharge Mantra multiple times.

When using Focused Resolve, slow your opponents with Inner Flame or speed yourself up with Inspire if you're having trouble sticking to a target.

Gathering Fire rewards aggressive play. Look to land abilities and basic attacks on your opponent to lower Mantra's cooldown and stay on the offensive.

Advice to Win Against Ashe

Ashe has very few defensive options, and she's a good target to gank.

Be wary of moving around the map alone if Ashe has not recently cast her Enchanted Crystal Arrow.
