Karrie is one of the best hypercarry marksman in Mobile Legends. Her skills are easy to understand yet hard to master. But if played well she could be the best carry for your team. But honestly, in the solo queue, she is a little hard to play if your teammates don’t understand her rotation style. She is a burst-type hero so she is weak in ganks but is extremely strong in picking up enemies one by one, which in solo queue is tough to do. So to make it easy to play in the solo queue here is our guide for you. In this guide, we will take a look at the best emblem set, spells, build, including tips and tricks to pave your way to victory with Karrie in Mobile Legends.

So make sure to check these hero guides as well. For now, let’s focus on Karrie.

Skill analysis

Karrie has a basic skill line-up with one passive and three active skills. In this Karrie guide, let’s see what are her abilities in Mobile Legends, and when you can use which skill to get the best out of her.

Passive – Light Wheel Mark

passive skill

Karrie’s passive is simple. For every basic attack or Lightwheel Projectile, she adds up a mark that goes up to 5 marks. After completing 5 marks she deals true damage which literally ignores all the shields and penetrates armors. The true damage is equal to 7-13% of the target’s max HP and for the creeps, it deals 300 damage.

Skill 1 – Spinning Light Wheel

skill 1

Karrie releases a flywheel that deals damage on the way. If the flywheel travels the whole way it will deal less damage. It also slows down the enemies who are hit by it for 2 seconds. This is the only AoE skill of Karrie and it can be used to give continuous damage to the enemies or slow them down on the way and pick one by one and finish them. You can also use this skill to fast clear minion waves and takedown creeps.

Skill 2 – Phantom Step

skill 2

This is a small dash of Karrie in which she dashes in a designated direction while releasing a light orb towards the enemies in a range which deals significant damage to them. This skill on hitting also adds up a stack for true damage. The light orb released while the dash locks on targets in range and hit them for sure, even if they ran away to a distance. Using it frequently can deal more damage as it adds up the stacks. You need to give proper direction while using this blink or else you will end up in the enemy’s lap.

Skill 3 – Dual Light Wheel

skill 3

Karrie enters dual wield mode which basically increases her movement speed while reducing her attack speed and splits her single basic attack into two. That means she fires 2 light wheels on a single basic attack which gives her more stacks and deals more true damage to the enemies. The movement speed boost makes her more mobile and she can reposition herself faster while giving damage to the enemies.

Skill-up method for Karrie

Karrie is a great burst hero and can pick off enemies one by one easily, but she is very fragile. So you need to focus on upgrading the second skill or the dash first. By doing that the CD of the dash will be reduced and you will be able to dash frequently making her squishy to catch.

Moreover, her dash also gives a significant amount of damage in the process. After reaching level 4 focus on upgrading the ultimate as much as possible. It will help you spam the ultimate and you will be able to provide much True damage needed to melt down the tanks.

Best Emblem Set and Spells for Karrie in Mobile Legends

Emblem Set

You can use both the Assassin Emblem and Marksman Emblem with Karrie based on your playstyle. If you want to play the late game or you have tank support, we will suggest you go for the Assassin Emblem as it will provide you with the additional damage and gold bonus, if you secure kills in the early to mid-game. Set up your Assassin Emblem like this.

Mobile Legends Karrie Gameplay Tips

Karrie is a Mid-game-Late game Hero so don’t rush and play it slow. For hypercarry Karrie start in the mid lane with your tank and ask him to buy ram for sure, or else change the lane. This type of thing mostly happens in the solo queue so be prepared for it. . According to her gameplay, we can break it down into three phases. Our Mobile Legends Karrie guide includes the perfect game plan for the early, mid, and late game in the game. However, a player must need a good understanding of the map to bring the best out of any hero.

Early Game

If tank buys roam and stay with you in the mid lane, clear the minion waves and go for the blue buff as well as the red buff, along with the camps. This will make you level 4 in less than 4 minutes if you’re carrying retribution with you. While hypercarrying tries to give your offlaner a free lane, or try to move away from the attention from the offlaner. This will help her to get farmed faster and will allow her to push the turrets as well.

Mid Game

Keep on Pokin’! With Karrie try to poke your enemies with your first and second skill, and try to stack out your enemies while poking. Just do not overcommit to poking, if you think they gonna ambush you just get out of there, don’t take risks in the early to mid-game.

Mobile Legends Karrie Guide

They can easily pick you off in the early to mid-game.In the mid-game try to take the Turtle buff. It will give you the gold boost and CD reduction for the ultimate destruction in the late game.

Late Game

In the late game try to stay behind the tank or fighter and keep a safe distance from any assassin. Assassins can pick Karrie off very easily. So try to maintain a safe distance from them and most importantly in the late game don’t engage alone.
