How to play Karina:
Karina is an excellent pick for players who want to play an aggressive assassin role and deal high amounts of burst damage to enemies.
Use skill 1 (Dance of Blades) to increases her Movement Speed by 45% and blocks all Basic Attacks.Use skill 2 (Dance of Death) to deal AoE damage.
Use skill 3 (Shadow Assault) to quickly take down enemy heroes.
Early game (level 1-7): Karina is relatively weak and vulnerable to enemy attacks. She should focus on farming and gaining experience to level up quickly.
Mid game (level 8-12): Karina should focus on building her core items to increase her damage output and mobility. During team fights, she can use her ultimate ability to quickly burst down enemy heroes.
Late game (level 13+): Karina becomes a deadly assassin who can quickly eliminate enemy heroes in team fights. She should target enemy heroes who are out of position or low on health to quickly secure kills for her team.
Passive – Shadow Combo
Karina’s third attack on the same target deals extra True Damage equal to 7 (+2% Total Magic Power)% of their lost HP plus 50. If the target is an enemy hero, her non-Ultimate skills’ cooldowns will be reduced by 1.5 seconds.
Karina deals up to 2000 True Damage to creeps.
Skill 1 – Dance of Blades
Karina keeps flourishing her twin blades as she enters the Dance of Blades state for up to 3.5 seconds. In this state, she increases her Movement Speed by 45% and blocks all Basic Attacks, dealing 100–200 (+30% Total Magic Power) Magic Damage at the attacker (throwing a Shadowblade if hit by a ranged attack, or launching a spinning slash at melee attackers. This effect has a built-in cooldown of 0.4 seconds).
Karina’s Basic Attacks and Shadow Assault end Dance of Blades, but make her next Basic Attack deal 180–255 (+55% Total Magic Power) Magic Damage and inflict 45% slow effects for 1 second.
Skill 2 – Dance of Death
Karina brandishes her twin blades, dealing 375–600 (+125% Total Magic Power) Magic Damage to surrounding enemies.
Skill 3 – Shadow Assault
Karina charges at the enemy hero, dealing 450–750 (+160% Total Magic Power) Magic Damage and inflicting a Shadow Mark upon it and leaving a Shadowform behind it, both lasting 5 seconds. This skill’s cooldown is reset when a target with Shadow Mark dies.
Use Again: Karina rapidly travels over to the Shadowform’s location, dealing 150–250 (+50% Total Magic Power) Magic Damage to all enemies in her path.
