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.

Karina Skills

Passive – Shadow Combo

Karina does additional True Damage on her third attack in a row against the same foe, up to 2000 True Damage versus creeps, equal to 50 plus 5 (+2.5% Total Magic Power)% of their lost HP.

The cooldowns of Karina’s non-Ultimate ability are shortened by 1.5 seconds if the target is an enemy hero.

Skill 1 – Dance of Blades

Karina enters the Dance of Blades state for 3.5 seconds. During this time, she increases her movement speed by 45%, deflects 100–200 (+30% Total Magic Power) magic damage to the aggressor, and blocks all incoming basic attacks.

Karina’s Basic Attack during the period slows the target by 45% for 1 second, deals 150–255 (+55% Total Magic Power) Magic Damage, and is certain to land a critical hit. The Dance of Blades state is prematurely ended by casting the upgraded Basic Attack or Shadow Assault.

Skill 2 – Dance of Death

Karina unleashes a spinning slash that causes adjacent enemies to sustain Magic Damage between 375 and 600 (+125% Total Magic Power).

Skill 3 – Shadow Assault

The target enemy hero is dashed to by Karina, who deals 350–750 (+160% Total Magic Power) Magic Damage, shadow marks them, and leaves a shadowform in her wake. The duration of the Shadow Mark and Shadowform is five seconds. The cooldown of this talent is reset if the adversary dies within the time limit.

Use Again: Karina sprints back to the site of the Shadowform while causing 150–250 (+50% Total Magic Power) Magic Damage to foes in her path.
