Guide to Countering Karma as Zyra

Tips for Playing as Zyra against Karma

Seeds grant vision to your team.

Placing a seed in your spell's path after you have cast it gives you the best chance of having a seed in the proper spot.

Zyra is a great ambusher - look for opportunities to set a trap of seeds in brush, then lure enemies in.

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.
