Dear RIOT SOTERE. Has there been any talk of an utility support armor item?Squishy supports really need it. :/
PeanutButterJely
Not that I've heard of lately. A Glacial Shroud upgrade that makes sense for supports sounds tasty, though.
Would you mind giving me the speed of Yasuo's third Steel Tempest? I'm a little curious about just how fast it goes. Not really a support, but while you're here...
Direwolfiez
1200
Which "I travel to you" (at lack of better group name for it) skill shot is the fastest in the game? Lee Sins feels pretty fast (faster than death sentence at least) but that could be that it's so smooth to cast, it doesn't seem to have any wind up time at all. Lissandras should be the slowest I guess at 850. (would be curious to know Dredge lines speed as well if you got it).
haywire android
1800 for Lee Q - smooth feeling as you say, rather than raw projectile speed. Lissandra's E is indeed 850 (same speed as Anivia Q incidentally, which I think is still the slowest skillshot in the game). Naut's Q's 2000, though with a long cast time.

Range is one of the possible nerf points (it was while looking at his ranges we realized the indicator was off). Please nerf his burst, not his range. He was intended to be a sustained-damage mage, was he not? He doesn't really seem to play like that too much at the moment - just bursts people down like any other non-support mage. He needs all the range he can get to keep that sustained damage.
Drukyul
Yeah, burst's one of the other things we've been looking at, particularly now that people have go pretty good at chaining his spells/attacks together quickly.
What bothers me about responses like this is that it amounts to "We'll talk eventually, maybe, possibly," when you could literally create one official discussion post, check it once a day for a day or two, and solve 90% of the crowd's concerns. From our side, it looks like *complete silence.* I know consciously that you guys are probably working feverishly behind the scenes, but saying "it'll get there eventually" doesn't help when you are literally giving words to excuse the lack of words you have given. Most of the people complaining are consistent forumgoers. This is the case because the people who want more *actively seek out more.* You're clearly capable of posting on the forums, and since the forums are a much less formal environment, you could post some bits and pieces, or a Q&A, or even just have a casual discussion and people would be - if not totally satisfied - then at least a little bit sated.

Absolutely fair point. I'll put something up this week for specific discussion. If you'll forgive me if I don't right now as I have a shivering man-flu and the spots in front of my eyes mean I don't fully trust my ability to rationally produce words. I just wanted to make sure I addressed the thread in some form as I've been wanting to get on the boards a while and a fellow Rioter kindly poked me about this in particular.

This has been fixed.
People being upset about the retcon is no surprise to any of you, I'd wager. But this has been going on for months now, and all we can seem to do is argue and point the fingers at eachother. A lot of the discussion seems to be about if this is Riot's fault, or ours, or whatever. I think the problem is at least on both ends. For every attempt to fix things the Lore team makes, when Jaredan or CarnivalKnights comes into a thread, someone rambles off about how this is (and I'm quoting here) "the worst decision since the 1933 German elections". Remember Opeli? Remember the death threats? The Twitter raid GD got dragged into? Remember the last time someone made a "Tech Issue Must Be A Lie!" thread and IronStylus shut them down? Every attempt to forge a new connection is sabotaged by roughly a handful of people who feel the need to throw out every edgy zinger they think up or think they're fighting some kind of internet war where if you aren't with them, you're against them, and Riot is some crushing entity trying to smash their homes. And there's issues with communication with Riot, I'm not going to say that's not true. Lore is an extremely marginalized area. The president of the company was even unaware about what was going on with Lore. It's not the biggest focus. You just have to check the client and see the spot where Nikasaur or Phreak would discuss community fan work and see #BIGPLAYS ZED BLINKS FOR 10 SECONDS STRAIGHT instead to know that the focus towards community has shifted. It's just the nature of things. Lore is a super small part of a shrinking focus on fan work, and I doubt the writers are any more happy about that than we are. And I hate to invoke this, but we saw what happens to MOBAs that put Lore first nowadays. It was called Dawngate. There are a ton of people here who make a ton of good threads. CaptainMarvelous continues to make solid Lore Discussion threads almost every week. CupcakeTrap's Bandle City thread and Bilgewater thread were really good, and I've had a great discussion with him in client about reasons we like League's lore, our favorite city states, etc. And it was great. I also talked with Rioters on the forums a few times, about dumb stuff like Jarvan's staunch approval of "The Bro Code" and more serious things like what was going to happen after the League retcon. And it was great. This is so frustrating to me because I don't think we're at a good place right now, I don't like the retcon, but I don't think this is the way to go about fixing it. This constant fighting and tinfoil hatting over how we're being "TRICKED AND PACIFIED", every single red post breaking out into an argument, etc. I have posted almost exclusively on the Lore Forums for like 4 years now, mostly because I like the people here. I know a lot of the people here. And we enjoyed the forums and the discussions, and that demographic is growing with boards because of the international aspect of it. EUW, NA, LA, etc., are no longer separated, and that opens the floodgates for a ton of potential discussion on Lore. But it kills me to see that time being spent fighting over absolutely everything. This is not a binary issue. The Lore team's goal is to put out good lore. That makes them money and gets them appreciation. Lore fans want to consume good lore. That makes us happy and gives us stuff to talk about. So why are we treating it like a fight? It's not one. You don't have to declare your allegiance to Riot or the fans. You should want to work with both. You don't have to choose between the LeagueFactions lore or the Official Lore, or the Old one or the New one or even the Beta one where Kayle shot fire for some reason. You can talk about them all, you can enjoy them all, you don't have to pick a side. You aren't going to stop playing League just because you also like to play WoW or Dota or Smash Bros. or something. Nobody is forcing you to like the new lore or the old one. And they shouldn't. There was such a good community here, folks. There still is. This isn't about fighting to "Take Back Lore" or to "Shut up the whiners". It's about working with the people who make the Lore to create something we can all enjoy. Come on, people. Let's talk about Lore. Together. EDIT: Goddamn, top thread on the "Hot" sorting for Story and Art, 43 upvotes, and a Red Post. Certainly did not expect that. I appreciate it, ladies and gentlemen. I really don't want to see this community I've loved for so long break apart, and I'm thankful for all the discussion posts and opinions being weighed in in the comments.
LordHippoman
I just wanted to say thanks to LordHippoman for such a constructive and positive post. Great stuff.
In theory, this would be ideal and I'd fully support it... In practice, there are a few flaws: * **Narrative is in full charge of the conversation:** Someone from Narrative could, in theory, come in and say "*we're not going to discuss the ret-con or anything else, but what do you think of ?*" and use that to gather ideas and provide feedback. Even if they didn't use a single idea, the notion of them *asking* for feedback would be a powerful start. * **The silence has gone on too long:** Except for one message from Carnival Knights on a joke thread and a handful of standard Riot-issue non-answers about Foundations from Riot Whren, they've gone into complete silence for the past two months. Nothing new about the tech issues supposedly preventing them from releasing content or progress on the new bios and the retcon, etc. The cycle of silence and broken promises from Narrative/Lore has fully repeated once again. Again, I'd love to put all that history in the past and start fresh, but the first step has to come from Narrative. They have to be willing to start the conversation and stick with it. They have to provide some feedback on the ideas we have and be willing to work through the wall of ice they and their previous associates have built. And they should do it as soon as possible.

They have to provide some feedback on the ideas we have and be willing to work through the wall of ice they and their previous associates have built. And they should do it as soon as possible. I'm fine with discussing the reset of Runeterra, the issue is I've put forward answers that folks, understandably, don't agree with and it's hard to respond with points that will be satisfying as they're dependent on the content we want to produce due to the changes we have made. When I continue to give similar answers, the response from players on the boards (again, understandably) is that I'm not saying anything new and that "trust us" isn't a viable response in the time between content. I can reiterate until the cows come home, but until they're carrying some stories with them (that metaphor got away from me quickly), I feel like I'm just being annoying to a bunch of folks—mainly as they tell me how annoyed they are. The tech issue has been about as frustrating as it could be all around. From my perspective, being able to talk specifically about new content, about those champs and their affect on the world of Runeterra, is the primary way to really engage about the world of story we want to build without it being hypothetical. For folks on the board, it must seem bewildering that something as apparently simple as putting words on a web page can go on for so long. The complexities are there though. We're trying to get a solution that frees us to deliver content a little differently from a technical standpoint and there have been hiccups as we go, as seen by the unfortunate Amumu-related occurrence last month. That was a test run that didn't work out. The tech-issue alone has not been the complete reason for the delay in some of the content we want to deliver. Narrative is undergoing a number of changes as we attempt to level up in much the way the Art team has in recent years. I'm not going to be able to talk specifics, but it includes prioritization, organizational structure, personnel and so on. In other words: lots of stuff. Before anyone asks: I'm not going to talk about specific people who are not part of the Narrative discipline out of respect for them. It's an endeavor that has taken up a lot of my personal time, but I certainly should be engaging more than I have. I'm attempting to rectify that. My personal lack of engagement in the last couple of months is, no matter the circumstances, utterly my fault, and I apologize for that. Continuing to foster a positive dialogue with you should always be a priority and I've been unable to respond in the way I want to. I greatly appreciate everyone's passion on these boards, I share it, as does every member of the Narrative team. I simply want to be one of the many folks helping to move things forward, both in the content Narrative produces, and in the conversations between us and you, the players.

Well, at events, we'll be decked in Riot gear, often with summoner names on the back. Otherwise, it's a matter of recognizing someone, or noting they're wearing a Riot shirt. I practically live in one of my Riot hoodies. It's grey and matches pretty much everything I wear. (It also gets washed frequently.)

Just wanted to share an idea for a skin for Gnar. Basing him on the mythical Jackelope would be a great fir for his theme and his bouncy animations already complement the idea. In addition, his Mega Gnar form could give him some full heavier antlers like a moose. I am not a competent artist, but here is a picture of a Jackelope that already looks like Gnar. via Pardoart @Deviantart http://fc02.deviantart.net/fs70/f/2014/050/c/8/jackalope_by_pardoart-d7741eh.jpg Full photo credit here: http://pardoart.deviantart.com/ Cheers, Summoners! :) Edit: added art link.

Is there anything you can tell us about the PAX skins, like will there ever be a time that people can GET them at some point in the future? Or will you ever "remake" these skins by making very similar skins and naming them something else? It makes me so sad that everything I've looked at from ordinary users points to them never being available again. Personally, the only one I want more than anything is PAX Sivir, although I am sure there are people who would love to have the other PAX skins. It would just be very nice to have some official word on these.

Ah, totally sold out!? :~c I guess i wont be going to pax this year... :/ Yeah, i just looked it up.. Sold out. Crazy...
georgeCARNAGE
Yeah, three day passes sold out in less than 10 minutes. I was waiting my computer, and my fiance was on his, and we ended up with four passes, so I ended up giving two of the passes to my friends, and they're splitting the hotel with us.
Oh. I was just starting to look into it. About how much does it cost to be able to stay all 3 days?? o.o Looks very expensive with event+hotel price for all 3 days.
ChimeiTekinaNasu
I usually split a hotel with friends, so it's only ~150 for the weekend as the hotel goes, plus ticket cost.
Oh im not really sure, ive never attended an event like this before. Thats a good question though. Are the badges for the panels and/or are there ga tickets if i just show up?
georgeCARNAGE
The badges are for the expo hall, and for the panels. If you don't have a badge, you're not permitted into the event.

Thank you for responding
georgeCARNAGE
No problem, sorry it wasn't the answer you were looking for. I'll be at PAX East, sooo if you're around, it'd be cool to say hi! :D
> You'll notice that when a champion has a bunch of new sounds, as opposed to a new model, texture and particles, it's often a 1350 RP skin. Ooohhh...okay you see, when I watch the preview videos I hadn't noticed that his sound effects were changed at all. **edit: ** Wait...is that a good thing? ----------- btw part of the reason we all refer to you is because we don't know anyone else, for instance, I wanted to contact the creator the Vel skin but there isn't any watermark on the splash art or anything that points to the direction of the designer. So umm...if you ever run across the guy, can you pass on one request/feedback for me? His skin looks great overall! But the R looks MUCH weaker and less *"life-form disintegrate"*-y than his default skin's. I don't know why, maybe it's the light colours, but if you can pass this bit about his R off to the designer, that's be nice. Is it **supposed** to look* less disintegrate-y* because Arclight Vel'koz is supposed to be a "good guy"? Or is it the natural effect of the particle turning to such a light yellow colour?
Ginga
I try to help where I can. :3 If I don't know the answer, I often ask the person on the skins team who worked on it directly! It's a team effort, so one person isn't working on the whole thing. :D I think the ult might feel a bit different is, like you said, the color difference. I can certainly ask him about it tomorrow!

As a customer we don't know much about the skin development process as skins don't get dev blogs the same way Capcom explains how a single SF character costs a bajillion dollars to create. Therefore, any judgement we CAN make is based entirely on... a) What you say b) What we get in-game I'll take your word that altering a champion's voice can take hours of work to achieve perfection. I understand how** miniscule and trivial things can take WAY more work than a layman can possibly realize** (as someone learning to be a teacher, anyone saying teaching is an easy job should have their jaw broken) BUT, and this is a semi-objective but here, the main problem I find about your use of voice filters is point b), what we get in-game. I feel that all that hardwork simply isn't as appreciable as snazzy new particles and animations are. Let's look at animations/particles here. You can see them even if you have hearing difficulties, you can show them off by simply playing the game, **sometimes it's an outright BUFF** to the champion! (Pulsefire Ez's range increase, Blackfrost Anivia's AA animation being easier to work with, Mecha Kha'zix isolation being much easier to notice) With new particles and such, all that hardwork you guys put into designing them are there for all to see. For voice filters, unless you're taunting/laughing you can't show it off. It's easily lost in an intense teamfight. And this is the objective part here, but you quickly zone it out *unless the champion happens to say something really wacky and unforgettable in a specific context.* ** e.g **- If {{champion:84}} ever gets a Legendary skin, and when she buys Armor and Magic Penetration she says aloud *"Alright Double Penetration baby!"* ---------------- **TL;DR -** The work behind voice filters are not translated nearly as well as the work behind particles and animations as far as final product goes. You think there's a way to streamline the development of voice filters so that they can be cheaper? As a customer, seeing a cool skin go from 975 to 1350 RP is depressing just because you gave him/her smoke a pack of expensive tobacco. **PS** - I am in LOVE with the idea of that Akali Legendary skin I just made up as an example. Please oh please make it happen along with that specific line. Now THERE is when all your work on champion voices can truly come to fruition.
Ginga
Hey there! I think you're referring to what I'd said about Arclight Vel'Koz. First things first, it's not voice a voice filter, it's voice processing. In Vel'Koz's case, our audio guys made the music/sound that is played behind his voice. After that part's done, it's mixed into Vel'Koz's base VO. Then, the audio guys spend time making sure the levels are okay, and the sounds aren't drowning out what the tentacle monster is trying to say. We don't process every skin's voice because we reserve it for skins where the overall fantasy makes more sense if they sounded a bit different. Mecha is a prime example of this. With that being said, that's not all that makes him a 1350 RP skin. He also has a suite of new sound effects that are different from his base. You'll notice that when a champion has a bunch of new sounds, as opposed to a new model, texture and particles, it's often a 1350 RP skin. A couple examples of this would be Arcade Miss Fortune and Arcade Sona. We've outlined a general guide for what kinds of new stuff each tier of will have included [here](https://support.riotgames.com/hc/en-us/articles/201752874-Skin-RP-Price-Changes).

5.1 azir is way nerfed. they need to buff him jst to make usefull instead of having a lower then 40% win rate.
championmaggot
Azir wasn't nerfed in patch 5.1. His win rate in normal games does look really low this week, that's a good example of why it's important to treat stats with caution though. Azir's currently in the free week rotation, and he has one of the steepest learning curves in the game. That means his normal game win rate plummets as new people learn him during a free week. His ranked win rate by contrast, where free rotation champs can't be played, is if anything still trending up slightly, at around 50% or so.
Loving seeing this pattern so beautifully displayed... all over the Bug Reports forums, game-breaking bugs and actual issues, not to mention all the big ones that have been hanging around ruining games for literally years, but no, Riot can only respond to the missing bubbles post... *#*RiotFixYourGame
Urdnot Entar
I'm not much help with a lot of those issues - I'm a part of the skins team, which is why you'll usually see me commented on issues relating to skins. With that said, we do have people who check out the forums in other disciplines and look into many of the issues, although they may not comment on every bug report. :]
Server: NA Type of Bug: Game Bug Description: I have mecha ward, but playing ingame, everytime i get the yellow trinket into the pink vision upgrade, and then i place it it shows the Golden Goal Ward. Video / Screenshot: http://imgur.com/7EhaiMD,pAvDSCW,yllBaLH,JJVHfvS,VU8hv5U,sZfsOe1#3 http://imgur.com/7EhaiMD,pAvDSCW,yllBaLH,JJVHfvS,VU8hv5U,sZfsOe1#5 (((( this one shows how it is replaced. Steps to reproduce: 1) buy warding totem(yellow trinket). 2)get to level 9. 3) buy the vision ward (upgrade to pink) 4) place it Expected result: Mecha pink ward Observed result: Golden Goal pink Ward Reproduction rate: 10/10 (i only have tried with ezreal, and with selected ward skin "mecha ward") but there are my pics showing im telling the truth gl&hf:) System specs: IRRELEVANT
ChazCreed
This is a known issue and we're working on a fix! :D
In-game when Heartseeker Ashe fires her ultimate, all that is visible is the particle effects of the ult, not the arrow. Recreation Steps: 1. Choose Ashe and select the Heartseeker Ashe skin. 2. Reach level 6 3. Fire Ultimate, observe that the arrow is not visible and only the particle effects of the ult are visible. This makes the skin unbalanced from the normal default skin since it is hard to see and is unfair. Thanks.
JACOBSMILE
Thanks for the report! We'll look into it and see what's going on with her arrow.
I've recently bought the {{item:3362}} in some games, and in every one of them the Ward became the Battlecast Ward I don't own that ward skin I currently have the Poro Ward skin. Basic Wards, the normal Trinket Ward, and Sightstone Wards all use my skin, but the pink upgrade of the trinket changes it to Battlecast I'm attaching an screenshot where I place a Sightstone ward (Poro) on the left, and use the {{item:3362}} ward on the right (note the items in my inventory)
Aamano
This is a known issue and we're working on a fix! Thanks for the report!
I see that the ZZ Rot Portal is back and that Maokai is back so does anyone know if the bug with kalista's passive has been fixed yet? I would love to start playing her with some nice attack speed again but I dont know if she has been fixed.
TotallyNotXerith
Yup! That was fixed on 1.21. If you're ever curious about a bug like that being fixed or not, you can check out the [patch notes](http://na.leagueoflegends.com/en/news/game-updates/patch/patch-51-notes). We keep a list of Patch Updates for when we fix things like this. :] Edit: spelling.
I was wondering if riot still releases codes for the pax skins at events, or are my hopes of obtaining pax sivir by attending pax east dashed?
georgeCARNAGE
PAX skins haven't been given out for a long time. We've switched to handing out other skins, such as Dragonslayer Pantheon and Arcade Hecarim. We switch it up a bit, so it's not necessarily always the same skins. Sorry!
Thinking about drawing an 11x14in Aether Wing Kaleee next because why not
3lancer
This is wicked cute! Nicely done!

warpenguin555
Yup, there sure is! We keep an eye on the boards for skin concepts, as well as on Reddit! As we get closer to a new skin ideation for a champion, we'll also Google say, "Zilean skin concepts" or something of the like to see if there's any additional ideas.
http://fc04.deviantart.net/fs46/f/2009/248/a/3/Ares_by_GENZOMAN.jpg Right now i feel that {{champion:80}} needs a serious visual update, compared to every other champion in the game he looks blocky and gross. He's a insanely good champion and feel that his appearance is what drives many away from playing him. Personally i feel he should look something like this (see attached link/image) and he should be tall and lean. He should look like a force to be reckoned with, i mean hes a spartan for Christs sake. I think it would also be really cool if he had additional stuff like when his spear is on CD he pulls out a sword etc... Thanks! -Freakface99 P.S. I've also heard that Riot was thinking of giving him a face, don't. he looks way cooler with just the eyes and not seeing his face adds this concept of mystery to him that's pretty unique. http://img2.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20130705211556/polskapersopedia/pl/images/0/0b/Ares_by_peterprime-d5rvzcq.png.jpg
freakface99
Yes. Yes he does. Problem: How to make Spartan dude not Spartan dude but still make him sorta feel like Spartan dude. Anyway, there's probably space in Targon to really make something of Panth. Right now Targon itself needs some fleshing out before that can be the case. Is Targon our celestial-grecco-roman-ish playground thing? Cool. We can't be JUST a ripoff of that though. We've gotta make our nods of the mythology we're tapping into but we've also gotta put it in a unique place. I think we'll probably get to a VU when we flesh Targon out more. Hell, I'd adapt Leona to a more deep connection to Targon if we flesh the region out more. I think Diana falls more in line with what could inspire an aesthetic of Targon form language, but that inspiration would have to be reverse engineered onto Leona and Pantheon both I feel. Either way, he's probably not going to get anything super soon. Good news though is that as we saw with Dragon Slayer Pantheon's successful execution as a skin, we can make a pretty cool new base from that potentially along the lines of Maokai and Alistar if we reach a consensus about where Panth fits in.
Title says it all really, can we get a rough estimation of how much longer it may be?
imbrus
Status: Still in pre-production. We've been meeting with our Narrative bros and they've got some neat ideas for him. Some deeper and more out-there thoughts that might really create some new fertile ground for him while still keeping him familiar. It's an interesting place to be. I restarted his concept ideation to reflect some of those ideas and come up with some options that span the requirements of the game, what players' expectations of Taric are and also pad for the opportunity for more stories to be told about him in the future. We're experimenting with some new directions but so far they've yielded some very interesting results. So much so that I and another artist are spinning in a direction that's a little tangential from what has been thought of and discussed early on. The basic challenge is how to make Taric not just a dude in fancy armor, but a special sorta paladin for League. That's where we're at now. His kit remains in production, my hope is that we'll figure out a solid visual direction for him early in the year that will compliment the new kit. THOUGH ANYTHING COULD CHANGE, YA KNOW.
Thanks for the clarification. This might be a bit off topic, but a few years ago you answered questions about skillshot speeds. I'd love to know what the speed of Thresh's Death Sentence and Leona's Zenith Blade are.
Sonnington
Thresh Q has a speed of 1900 (though note that's after a half second cast, twice the most common length). Leona E has a speed of 2000.
For the next patch, though most of the balance changes seem to be terrible, their targets are justified. Nerf op assassins (some not enough, some just plain ineffective at reducing burst i.e. zed). Give compensation to dfg users (more like kill them more). Rework some champions (more like remove the champion/their playstyle from the game). But I did not see this coming. Isn't his pick/ban/winrate ridiculously high right now? And it's a buff... riot almost never gives buffs. Source: http://www.newsoflegends.com/index.php/pbe-round-up-patch-5-2-32966/
Golden Liquid
This is an indicator change only, the spell's actual range isn't increasing. We're considering Azir nerfs for 5.3, he's stronger in some situations than he should be. Range is one of the possible nerf points (it was while looking at his ranges we realized the indicator was off).
Lissandra's ultimate is supposed to count as a stun when cast on an enemy champion, but it does not break the channeling of Yi's meditate. I'm not sure if it's failing to interrupt any other channels since this is all I've encountered so far. How to reproduce the bug: play Liss, ult a meditating Yi, he will continue to heal through it as if nothing happened.
Meg Masters
Just checked and I'm seeing Lissandra's ult interrupt Meditate successfully. It does leave Yi frozen in the Meditate pose however, so it's not as easy to tell it's working as other interrupts will be.

I'd have to look, I don't know off hand.
