Guide to Countering Xayah as Karma

Tips for Playing as Karma against Xayah

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.

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

Advice to Win Against Xayah

Xayah's Bladecaller will only root targets hit by 3 or more returning Feathers.

Make sure you are ready when you go for the kill. Untargetability from Featherstorm can quickly turn an ambush in Xayah's favor.

Long fights in the same area with Xayah will allow her to drop a lot of Feathers. Try to stay on the move!
