The supporting cast of rotund penguins and feral squirrels are passive witnesses without joining on the action despite their, at times, privileged position. Karma appears meditating with a serene visage, a somewhat stereotypical pose and fans overtly displayed; though the open one conceals a good deal of her dress. Sounds: Original voice-over for Karma. Sounds: New sounds for his abilities, auto-attack and recall. Therefore, the style feels like a plain, and even untidy, adaptation. In the foreground, the walls are clear with elaborate carvings and the floors richly lined in gold.
Animations: New animation for her Mantle of Decorum and new recall animation. Her dress, from the waist up, is nicely coloured with a satin-like texture and dim yet believable gold lining. Another skin that is also worth recommending is Sun Goddess Karma, thanks to its novel concept and florid execution. All added together, this is a fantastic portrayal of Karma. Splash Art: Diffuse buildings, shining gems and mystical creatures coalesce to give a thin frame for Karma. What is far and away, in the middle, is closer to a bunch of shapes without much form than anything concrete.
Such ambivalence sets the skin apart from being a simple tribute without being unbelievable within its fantasy: a snow sorceress surely knows how to resist the cold. As we move down we find that colours become more diffuse and so that hands and legs, especially the latter, look unavoidably sketchy. The new particles are more focused on bringing the lotus theme forward, though. The fog is more than a way to occlude details as it extends with ominous presence. After considering it all, Karma does have a distinct Japanese aesthetic and the concept is largely conveyed. All in all, Warden Karma is a nice re-model with some nice bird of prey designs.
The former Challenger skins were good in their own way. The incredible use of light makes the portrayal enchanting. Particles: New particles for her abilities, auto-attack and recall. If you like the idea of a battlemage then Warden Karma delivers if you can accept its flaws.
Metal looks a bit dull and the central part of her Mantle of Decorum glows with a weak light that obscures the wings of the Mantle more than illuminate them. In terms of sounds, nothing new is noticeable. Karma is clearly visible and, fortunately, escapes to the unnecessary blur of the background. Instead of defining a new identity for Karma we find the good, same old Enlightened One with a change of clothes.
Her Mantle of Decorum is largely omitted but most of her armour is visible with, from the waist up, a reasonably colourful and attractive depiction. Conqueror seems to be more about elegance, which is fine, but without trying to define a new identity for the champion as Challenger skins did. Rating: Conclusion: Dressed in gold-lined red and displaying a contrasting, and perhaps unmatching, light blue hair Conqueror Karma has a clear identity. Maybe sometimes, just only the voice over is good enough. This is all finished win a fitting recall. That said, Traditional Karma is more of a nostalgic memento that fails at capturing her old style as is relies so much on the new visuals.
When it comes to Sakura Karma we find a skin with a distinct Japanese aesthetic. All in all, Winter Wonder Karma is a particularly convincing interpretation of the Enlightened One as an ice mystic. Gold glints with a dim personality and the satin-like dress appears dull; which is anticlimactic to the rich and elegant look of the three-dimensional model. Her depiction is clear, with sharp colours and great use of reflections. Players guide you through every step of Karma creation, modification and play style. Still, the portrayal is quite appealing with nice, even if uneven, sharpness.
They are clear in that regard but a tad forced sometimes. If the setting were more focused and the portrayal less uneven in its depiction the piece could shine. Her skin is soft and delicately shaded. Jax receives an even more detailed portrayal but only as long as we centre our attention on the area around his helmet. As if regardless of the situation a lotus should be displayed somehow.
Metal looks dull in all places and the satin feel of the dress at the top is lost due to lack of vibrancy in the colours elsewhere. Splash Art: Mayan pyramids with floating icons on top stand under a dusky sky filled with shining stars. For something elegant and sober with a touch of her old style Traditional is the best choice. Karma poses with hands ready to unleash her powerful magic and eyes that reveal that the power goes beyond the exterior. In certain ways it gives the idea of a girl wanting to dress in traditional Japanese clothes and doing as good she can with what she has available.
Not at all, glad to help. Her Mantle of Decorum glows with a mystical albeit dull light but the metal looks alright. Nevertheless, as a change of style Conqueror Karma is quite a good option; provided you accept its superficiality. The interesting feel of the watercolour hair and whimsical ripples of magic are echoed by the capricious bends of her dress and svelte contour of her body. In fact, the silhouettes of leaves over her kimono are a fantastic touch that makes the portrayal all the more evocative.
