    My kid has this on his account, and I was wondering – I’ve seen comments about working with Frozen Banshee for the skill reset, what about putting him on a team with Prince Kymar? Not only does Kymar have a poison as an A1, but his A3 is a complete skill reset. Wouldn’t that make this champ pretty valuable, at least for early to mid game players and/or F2P?

  2. Khvicha Gogichashvili

    Happy New 2022! Does anybody an idea how he can work in unkillable team?

  3. Jojo Rabbit

    Rot away has been updated to include after the original line: “If the target is a Boss, it receives 50% less dame from those poison debuffs” I don’t know if that changed the damage or how he works now, I won’t turn him into food yet.

  4. Cevrial

    Has anyone tried this guy outside of CB? Look at his modifiers. Even without the poison damage on that A3, it’s modifier goes between 4.8 and 8.8. If you can get him to 0 against any boss without a %hp cap (level 20 grinding classic dungeons) he will hit for 200k before the poison damage is added in. An atk modifier of 7 is high–almost 9 is crazy compared to most other high damage champs. With poison on a1, this is a good looking kit for damage even though his a3 gets capped on higher-end bosses.

  5. polop lopol

    Unfortunately, Karam’s poison explosion works really weird on CB, just tested. He applies basically just damage of one stack.
    Completely useless on CB, probably due to how maximum % damage works on the boss. Maybe as a poison exploder or dragon or something but I’m pretty sure everyone thought he would be god on CB but is absolute trash.

  6. travism2006

    Sounds like 5* star for CB if you have frozen banshee for Poison Sensitivity + Pain keeper to help deal with cooldown? I currently have Frozen Banshee as lead with Kael, Sycl, Stag and Apoth and I can get a good 6 poisons on sometimes and easily reach the max debuffs allowed.
    Maybe not unkillable setup but still sounds like a great dmg dealer for CB.

  7. Billi

    Therese are no restriction on how much damage Karam can inflict. But there are a max limit on how much HP burn/Poison damage the Clan Boss can recieve.

    A couple in my clan use Karam in unkillable with great success, both use Vizier too but I guess that’s “optional“

  8. Nickilio

    Would Karam be a good option for slowboy in budget unkillable team (Maneater, Painkeeper, Kreela & Dracomorph)?

  9. Neveron

    After posting my earlier message I read near the bottom of comments that his Karam’s damages when forcing poison’s to hit is capped at 75K. I will have to watch that closer in my next CB fight. If this is true I think it is a shame that they give a champion a skill and then step on it so it cannot be utilized fully. What’s next? Are they going to Nerf Kael because some people know how to make him an uber champion? If they do that then I will part company with this game and take my wallet with me. Why create a champion with a skill then crap on it? Should just have never released the champion at all. I got an idea… lets do the “progressive” thing and make all champions equal: (And yes, that was sarcasm).

  10. Neveron

    Have not finished completely building Karam or Dracomorph but have had promising success with this team in CB Brutal. Frozen Banshee, Apothecary Scyl, Dracomorph and Karam. I am using an Attack/Support Mastery instead of this sites recommended Attack/Defense Mastery. Has anyone else tried a similar use for Karam? If so what are your takes? When I have finished the buildouts on Dracomorph (who is awesome champion by the way) and Karam who is new and have not utilized him much yet so have limited knowledge of his strengths in practice yet. I will try him in Faction Wars next but most players I have noticed are not much impressed in FW results as a way to critique a champion.

  11. GJWHITE66

    After seeing him basically 1-shot Spider 20 when paired with Taurus, it may be time to revisit building Karam in a very specific way. I know I’m taking him out of the vault

  12. BorisBaddenov

    @TheTodmeister — Not sure where you got the idea that Spider is immune to Poison. Poison is quite effective against this boss.

  13. TheTodmeister

    @unknown031 Spider is immune to poison, so no.

  14. Unknown031

    Wouldn’t trigger all poisons be useful against spider to one shot him?

  15. GarrettM

    so this was one of my earliest, if not my very first, epic champion. it makes me sad to see that so many people dont like him. he is one of my all time best characters that i have. now maybe its because of the very specific gear that i gave him, but he does more damage and can take more hits better than most everybody else i have. i love him and i dont think ill ever get rid of him.

  16. TobyFox2002

    The text for Karam’s A1 is misleading; it is 2.5% which can be increased to 5% by getting 3 star ascension.

  17. ugrivous

    @bizzaro same…..-.-

  18. bizzaro

    this was my sacred pull during a 2x event. makes me want to quit

  19. Himnal

    Good point 4cat. Never really thought about that setup. But hard to put him on a team for just that considering you’re doing the same with FB. Worth it?? ehh maybe…will give it a shot i guess just to test it out.

  20. 4catsarmy

    I think you have to use Karam in a turn meter manipulation team for him to shine. Eg. If you use him against dungeon bosses with an Allure and Frozen Banshee, the poisons won’t damage the bosses until their turn since Allure keeps pegging the turnmeter down. So Karam is there to trigger all accumulated poisons for that massive hp hit. Remember poisons does 5% of target HP, and if a boss has 9 poisons with poison sensitivity, that’s over 60% hp damage triggered by Karam’s A3 if the boss does not have innate decrease poison damage. Pretty useful I would think.

  21. Himnal

    Nothing like pulling a Karam from a sacred on X2 event…This CHamp is the posterchild for Needing a buff. Utterly useless and is nowhere near a B rank. 75% of the rares are better.

  22. 123123

    this hero keeps popping, fcking useless piece of shit

  23. Slim

    If you are using someone in FK to keep his shield down like allure then Karam works wonders in FK. A draco or aothar can load him up with poisons while Karam nukes him down. He should be way higher there.

    @Bodionospe: Thanks. I have updated Karam’s Clan Boss rating from 5 to 3.

  25. Bodionospe

    Rot Away skill on NM/UNM Clan Boss removes posions stacked by Visier, and does only 75k dmg. Think that his Clan Boss score should be lower (probably 1), because this drastically lowers overall poison dmg (can be calculated).

    Video proof:

  26. ShalokShalom

    His cap makes him a 3 star in clanboss if even.

  27. Driderk

    I read somewhere his A3 caps at 75k regardless of how many poison buffs triggered. I was thinking of pairing him in my counter team with F Banshee since she as the only poisoner can get to 10 debuffs pretty easily.

    Also is the dmg taken on his a2 cumulative or like a missing hp % calc?

  28. Crapple

    His gauntlets and chest-piece should be HP%/DEF%. Ring and amulet the same, focus on survivability. He’s not a heavy hitter. Ideally you want him in either a lifesteal set if you don’t have a strong healer, otherwise relentless would capitalize on his A1. A counterattack team would really help him shine too.

  29. Matthew M Stewart

    So I recently Got this Karam and was wondering: If his primary use is VS Clan Boss and it’s b/c of his ability to poison and then trigger all poison counters, then why do the gear lists for him all focus on attack and critical? Wouldn’t a focus Speed and Acc net you a greater amount of damage overall?

    @M: Karam mastery guide and equipment guide are now available! His mastery is tuned towards Clan Boss and Dungeons as he is not frequently used in Arena and Campaign.
