Tips & Tricks

Karina is a highly offensive oriented magic assassin designed to infiltrate enemy lines, eliminate key targets and get out without a scratch. As a result, she’s very squishy and needs to use her mobility and elusiveness to avoid death.


As a mage assassin, Karina can focus on building heavy damage items to mow down the opposition. This means it’s very important for her to farm in the jungle for the early part of the game so that she can maintain a gold advantage and obtain the items she needs to ramp up.

Start with the basic jungle item and Retribution spell to make early clears easier. Feel free to sell the base jungle item rather than upgrade it once farming becomes less important — Karina doesn’t benefit too highly from anything the Star Shard offers; she has high mobility to not need the upgraded Retribution, and enemies should be killed before she takes too much damage to need the heal on death. If you do decide to upgrade the jungle item, upgrade it to Star Shard.


Karina’s abilities give her nice damage, mobility and even defensive measures to get her out of a stick situation. 

Karina can initiate a fight with her ultimate ability Shadow Transition, bursting the enemy down and then using Dance of Death if more damage is needed. Casting Elusiveness can work to avoid a marksman’s basic attacks when needing to get out.

Using Karina’s ability resets on kills will take practice, but will separate a good Karina from a great one. To better do this, be sure to assess team fights carefully, knowing when to dodge and avoid enemy spells and who to engage on properly in order to snowball your burst damage into reset after reset!


Karina can use the Jungle Emblem page for help with her early clears. The extra damage to monsters from Brutal can help her clear camps faster and avoid having to waste gold on upgrading the jungle item. Swift will increase her attack speed, helpful in the jungle and out.

None of the final talents are particularly amazing — either Veteran Hunter or Mage Killer would be the better choice considering Karina is unlikely to upgrade the jungle item to make use of Wild Power.

Veteran Hunter will get you more gold in the jungle, and Mage Killer will help you secure important jungle objectives more easily.
