Karrie’s skills in Mobile Legends

Passive – Lightwheel Mark

Karrie’s basic attacks and skills apply a stack of Lightwheel Mark on hit. Once a target has five stacks of Lightwheel Marks, the marks will turn into a lightwheel, dealing true damage equal to a percentage of the target’s max HP to them.

  • Lightwheel Mark deals true damage, which ignores physical and magic defense. This allows you to shred tanky enemy heroes.
  • Since this passive ability deals true damage, it is advisable to prioritize acquiring attack speed items rather than focusing on physical attack equipment.
  • This also triggers on jungle creeps, but has a damage cap.

First skill – Spinning Lightwheel

Karrie releases a sphere of surging energy in the target direction, dealing physical damage to enemies in its path. The sphere will stop upon hitting an enemy hero or reaching its max travel distance, continuously dealing physical damage to nearby enemies and significantly slowing them for a second.

  • Get Spinning Lightwheel at level one to pressure your opponent in the lane or quickly clear the first minion wave.
  • When using this skill against minions, place the lightwheel at the center of the wave to maximize its area of effect.
  • Use this to slow down enemies that are pursuing you. Throw the lightwheel to the direction you intend to retreat, preventing them from inching close to you.
  • While this deals damage over time, it only applies one stack of Lightwheel Mark.

Second skill – Phantom Step

Karrie dashes in the target direction while throwing a lightwheel at the nearest enemy, dealing physical attack and applying a Lightwheel Mark on them.

When in Dual Wield state, she throws two lightwheels instead.

  • Phantom Step is her primary mobility spell, so max this out first to lower its cooldown.
  • Use this to chase down enemies or escape from them. Additionally, use this to reposition and dodge spells during team fights.
  • You can dash through walls using this ability.
  • This skill can be disabled by root effect, which Minsitthar has in his ultimate, King’s Calling.

Ultimate – Speedy Lightwheel

Karrie enters Dual Wield state for several seconds, during which she gains extra movement speed, and throws two lightwheels on each basic attack, each dealing a percentage of basic attack damage and inheriting a portion of attack effects.

  • Make sure to cast Speedy Lightwheel before engaging in a duel or team fight.
  • You can also activate this to gain movement speed when running away from enemies.

During the laning stage, hit your enemy with Spinning Lightwheel, then close in using Phantom Step. Use basic attacks to trigger Lightwheel Mark.

If you find yourself in an unfavorable matchup, use Spinning Lightwheel to efficiently clear minion waves, and rely on Phantom Step to disengage and retreat.

Before engaging in combat, ensure that you cast Speedy Lightwheel. Slow down your target with Spinning Lightwheel. Chase them down using Phantom Step, and secure the kill with basic attacks.

Remember, positioning is crucial for marksmen. As much as possible, stay in the backline or go to a position where your teammates can protect you while you dish out your damage.
