Karrie might be the most powerful character in the M4 World Championship meta right now.

The group stage of the M4 World Championship is well underway. In just two days, only Karrie was still in the competition with a 100% pick and ban rate.

In contrast to last season, the marksman hero became a fiercely disputed selection in this competition. Karrie only made an appearance 24 times during MPL PH Season 10’s 174 total games. She was only selected three times in 172 games during MPL ID Season 10, making the percentage substantially lower.

What gives her such a stronghold in the present meta? And will she appear more frequently in the knockout stage in the coming days?

Reasons Why Karrie Is So Strong

Swift Crossbow Is OP

The new attack speed Swift Crossbow makes Karrie into an early-game monster even if it isn’t tier-three equipment.

In addition to the 20% increase in attack speed, this special passive talent stacks with Lightwheel Mark, her passive skill, to increase her damage and attack speed with each basic strike.

Because it is much simpler to proc true damage on her basic attack when assaulting the same adversary five times, this item alone significantly increases her damage output. She can toss light wheels at the speed of light thanks to this and her ultimate Speedy Lightwheel, which further boosts her attack speed.

The item may be quickly acquired in the first five minutes of the game in the gold lane and is also inexpensive, costing only 1000 gold.

She was Buffed Heavily on Patch 1.7.44

Patch 1.7.44, which was released in late December last year, buffed a lot of marksman heroes, including the Lost Star. The cooldown of her Phantom Step and Speedy Lightwheel were slightly decreased.

Skill 2 – Phantom Step

  • Cooldown decreased from 5-3s to 4.5-2.5s

Ultimate – Speedy Lightwheel

  • Cooldown decreased from 40s to 35s

It might not be much, but these few seconds are crucial in team fights, especially in the early game when she doesn’t have her core items yet.

She also received an indirect buff with the improvements to Golden Staff and Corrosion Schyte, two items that increase her attack speed and damage output.

She Can Adapt to Any Team Composition

She can succeed against any team composition thanks to her toolkit. With Lightwheel Mark, she can destroy any tank jungler, and Phantom Step, her second skill, which has enhanced mobility, is a game-changer for assassin and marksman junglers.

On the second day of the group stage, ECHO’s Benedict “Bennyqt” Gonzales employed the hero against RRQ Hoshi, demonstrating the marksman’s strength.

He played one of the strongest games on the hero thus far in the tournament, achieving a brilliant 7/0/5 KDA in their first series victory, despite facing up against Claude and Akai, two of the most difficult tank junglers in the current meta.


Do you think Karrie will continue to dominate the M4? Or teams will be able to figure her out?
