In your post about Wukong, you mentioned that you will look into making his ult CD start on key press rather than after the ability has finished. Could you perhapsw do the same for velkoz as well?

I mean, dragons are covered in scales so what did u expect
: This is my own list that I can refer to on the subject matter. > [DEITIES] - Great Weaver- Nature God, governs the tapestry of fate, Shurima origins. - Shurima Sun god- Before the Sun Disk Shurima had a pantheon of gods, they were disowned and now long forgotten. - Bearded Lady- Elder God, governs the sky; sea; movement, Blue Flame Isles/Buhru origins. - Ornn- Firstborn, demi-god of fire and craftsmanship, Freljord origins. - Anivia- Benevolent idol, demi-god of the bitter cold; wind; rebirth/transition, Freljord origins. - The Volibear (Thousand-Pierced bear) - Ambivalent idol, demi-god of battle, uncivilized wilderness and thunder, Freljord origins. - The Sealsister- Forgotten goddess of the frozen sea, Freljord origins. - The Tusk Lord- Undisclosed demi-God, Freljord origins. > [IDOLS] - Gray Lady- Patron saint, the catalyst for Techmaturgy, Piltover/Zaun origins. - Veiled Lady (Morgana)- Patron saint of penance and atonement, Demacia origins. - The Protector (Kayle)- Patron saint of unwavering justice, Demacia origins. - Sivunas Alahair- prophesied hero, Shurima origins. - The Ascended Host/Darkin- all Sunborn were treated with god-like reverence, more so out of fear during the Darkin War. - Demon (Evelynn, Nocturne, Tahm Kench, Swain's demon) The spiritual manifestations of various aspects of humanity, feeding on unnatural coveting and/or unhealthy addictions. Note: I would love to include related items as "Idols" too, but gameplay =/= lore. > [ENTITIES] - Aurelion Sol- Born when the universe first came to be and spent eons forging stars. this allowed for the formations of star systems, planets and planetary life across the cosmos. Not particularly known throughout Runeterra nor worshiped. - Bard- A traveler from beyond the stars and an agent of serendipity to maintain balance where life can endure the indifference of chaos. - Nagakabouros- The exact size and scope of this being transcend mortal comprehension. It's a 'force' of energy that's connected with all living things. - Vilemaw- Although not a god, this entity is far more than meets the eye. - Kindred- Runeterra's mythological representation of death. Spoken of only in whispered tones by those who narrowly avoided fatality and seen by all in life's last moments. - Aspects- A group of cosmic unknowns, each embody a particular concept and has the ability to imbue mortals with their power/persona. - The Watchers- the conscious manifestation of the unknown nothingness that lies beyond. - The Spirit of Ionia- An unknown entity that expresses itself in various magical ways, through the land and abilities of some the champs. >[CULTS/SPIRITUAL INSTITUTIONS] ~~RELIGIONS~~ - Cult of the Three Sister- (Avarosa, Serylda, Lissandra). Ancient Freljordian saints revered as if god-like. - Draklorn- Lissandra's own cult inquisition. - Solari- Targon Sun(light) worshiping. - Lunari- Targon Moon(light) worshiping. - Church of the Glorious Evolved- Faith through techmaturgy and the practice of sacrificing flesh with mechanical limbs. - Somersaulting like Rammus - Yeah, some weird thing Shuriman's do to honor Rammus. - Sun Disk- Shuriman Sun priests dictate the will of the cosmos for those honored with the rite of Ascension. - The Illuminators- A charitable religious order and one of the only organizations within Demacia to utilize mages, albeit secretly. - Kinkou Order- An ancient clan dedicated to the preservation of balance and the protection of spirits and humans alike. - Indigenous culture Buhru- Not much is known beyond their devotion to Nagakabouros and the many other serpent gods. - Brethren of the Dusk- They maintain and bury corpses, not too sure if actually religious though. Doesnt matter tho, as they're all dead.
I feel like Rammus could be potentially regarded as an Entity or a Deity, though we know so little about his origins currently. Personally, i think it'd be very fitting if he was simmilar to Ornn or Anivia, in the way of shaping the overall landscape of the area where he's located. Also, aren't there some festivals in Demacia that celebrate, Poppy, the hero who wields the hammer? Not sure if that could be regarded as religion tho. We also know that both Vlad and Eve have followers, right? Maybe the void-supporting cult that Malzahar is in, could also be mentioned here. And lastly, Viktor's notion of glorious evolution, also kinda resembles religious beliefs with all of his followers.
Rioter Comments
: Made a thread when Neeko came out hoping that they would become a faction then. I thought a unique niche for them would be to be gatekeepers of magic. They don't irrationally hate it like Demacia or use it ruthlessly like Noxus or try to harmonize with it like Ionia or worship/venerate it like The Freljord, Mt. Targon and Shurima do. They have a very Ryze-like sensibility about it, but more extreme. It exists and it can be dangerous in the wrong hands so they try to amass as much as they can in any form to protect the world (artifacts, Hextech even actual World Runes). They don't trust anyone else to use it. This is because the Kumungu Jungle got hit pretty hard during the Rune Wars which has had a lasting effect on their culture. They are directly south of the chunk of Valoran next to Noxus that is missing. Which is suggested to be due to the Rune Wars, east of their desert Shuriman cousins and see the negative impact that the Ascended and Darkin had there the biggest one is that they are directly west of the Shadow isles which fell victim to the Ruination. The reason they must keep themselves secret is because of what happened with the Blessed Isles. They were home to magical artifacts and healing waters that made them a target to others. In service of this they use the untameable jungle as their ally. Their sophisticated culture and citadel is located in the center of the Jungle but the kicker is that they use dummy tribes of human and Vastaya to feign inferiority to surrounding societies (Piltover, Bilgewater and Shurima). By surrounding themselves with savages whose leaders report directly to the central command structure they can essentially remain completely incognito presence of the world stage. This is part of their darkness (Like Demacias' magic phobia, Noxian tyranny and Targons' misguided religious fervor) though as well. When outlying tribes get attacked, they turn a blind eye. If someone needs help they turn them away, If a tribal leader gets fed up and threatens to reveal Kumungu (or whatever Riot calls it) to the world they swiftly dispatch assassins to silence them (THIS COULD BE THE ROLE OF THE NEW AD ASSASSIN!). Anything to protect their secret. This could give off a spooky Big Brother, harmful government oversight, Edward Snowden type vibe to give the area more contrast. The Rune Wars are a WWII/Cold War analogue, a story device that is supposed to bring that very real fear of WMDs to Runeterra. Kumungu should be that worlds' Chernobyl or Hiroshima and Nagasaki. Even in the old lore the Kumungu jungle "bears the scars of the Rune War". I'm thinking a good analogy for radiation would be magical anomalies. A little like Ionia but less harmonious natural magic and more discord, environmental damage like stuff that calls to mind polar ice caps melting and global warming and animal extinction irl. Areas of the jungle that have different gravity. Warped time. Magically enhanced Flora and Fauna. Crazy Numenera type stuff that lets us see that the magic of the runes is dangerous and can fuck the world up in the wrong hands. The people of Kumungu live this reality everyday and remember the cost of magical power and try to prevent the rest of the world from being like their home. Just what I came up with. Came close to stepping on Ionia and the Vastayas toes but I tried my best to differentiate the faction and make it its' own. Might make a thread later once I make it more solid
Hoooly, thats actually a really great idea, and now i'm gonna be very dissaponted if their lore is just them protecting the trees from piltover. Only thing i dont really understand is that Kumungu doesnt have to do anything with the rest of the world, so i dont quite get why the rune wars would have had an effect on it. I get that from zyra's lore we do know that the war had infact reached the jungles, but it just seems weird to me that the nations of Valoran, who fought the war, would prefer to fight in such a hostile environment like what Kumungu has been desrcibed before. Though I can imagine Kumungu hosting a lot of untouched world runes, kinda like a huge oil reserve, that everyone would have wanted to get their hands on during the war, so that could be a good reason to dive deep into the jungle.
: Somekind of secret society remnicent of Mayan and Inca society. I'm calling it now. I just really hope that it isn't a retread of the Vastayan niche and they have something unique about them.
I agree. Mayan and inca cultures are not reperesented in any of the factions currently, so im _rooting_ for the jungle faction to fulfill this role.
: Kumungu is like a mini region within the greater Shuriman Jungles
Rioters have said multiple times, that they really dont like the name Kumungu. So my guess is that its just going the be a geographical place, and the actual region will have a new name. But i could be wrong, and i'd be very happy if they named the region Kumungu.

Not sure if you were here then or not, but targeted spells now proc minion agro, so that might affect your Panth matches.

: Worth noting that Rek'Sai has waited that long and yet STILL only has 2 alternate skins. I think everyone else waiting since 2015 has at least 4 alternate skins, except maybe Udyr?

Any chance we could see the return of Spellvamp in the shop?

Last year you said that Banner of command could return in the future. Is that statement still true? If yes, can we expect it again anytime soon?
Meddler (NA)
: Oh, man, it's been a while. From memory we were drawn to the shape and sound of the word more than anything, with the harder 'dra' being appealing given some of her backstory of rebellion and force of will. We actually started with 'Cyndra', but eventually concluded 'Syndra' felt like the slightly better fit. Also possible the writer on the team did have an origin point I'm forgetting though, apologies if so.
What caused you to desing so many mages?(Thanks for all of them btw!)

Any new runes in development? The current ones are becoming a bit stale.

I actually really like the idea of a modern darkin who is encaged in a gun.

What about making Conqueror adaptive? I never really understood why it only worked on ad champions.

Petricite Burst (Passive) **16/15/14/13/12 second Cooldown** "After casting a spell, Sylas's next basic attack whirls his energized chains around him, dealing [100% Total AD] (+5/8/10/13/15/18/20/23/25/28/3 0/33/35/38/40/43/45/48) (+20% AP) magic damage to enemies hit."

Whats the exact context behind the aurelion sol changes on the pbe currently? As for the leveling cap idea, imo it sounds like an interesting mechanic, and it could shift the meta towards some more offmeta picks, so im for it.
: Everyone wants to see damage nerfed but no one's willing to have their class nerfed.
Magic pen is about the same amount as it used to be. Some of it got buffed, as a compensation last year, cuz pmen was removed from runes.

: I want Volibear to be the fighter Aatrox never was
Good idea! Also Aatrox wasnt the only one that could have ended up like this. Back when they reworked sejuani, she was gonna have this aspect of her highlighted, which didnt really happen unfortunately.
: I hate being the 'bad guy' because I don't trash on Riot.
Imo ppl who do this are the reason rioters are not always keen on commenting here on the boards under gameplay.

I really hope Aurelion somehow breaks the crown and goes and just destroys them.
: It did once upon a time, and mage vs mage lanes were boring as fuck because both laners would rush negatron, then get ap, mana, cdr later, and neither would do damage to each other until they both had sorc shoes and void staff. It honestly became a problem because they made negatron build off null magic. If negatron was a basic item, it might work now, currently it would be like Stormrazor building out of a chain vest.
banshee never built out of negatrons cloak, you prolly mean abyssal staff

(seriously she has 8 quotes total in game.) Yeah, i'm unable to belive when i hear that. Besides, visual updates usually ended with that champion losing part of it's personality. I don't really care about it now, but i doubt new VO will be something astounding. I hate the very idea of a rework, but my opinion doesn't matter, i'm in the extreme minority here.
Why wouldnt you believe it lol? Why would riot lie to us about not updating her gameplay
Sukishoo (NA)
: LOL no. She's on the list for Updates in the future. All she had in the past year or 2 was part of their Global Splash Unification where they chose to use the Chinese Splashes for all regions.
Please, do a bit of research next time, before you disagree with someone. Also dont make false claims about she being on the splash update list. Theres no such offical list, and even if there was she wouldnt be on it, because **sivir did receive a splash art update like 1-2 years ago** Here i made some comparisons for you https://imgur.com/a/Fx3LbcG
: Sivir splashes please
umm sivir had a splash update kinda recently lol
: Some thoughts on more dated female champions, from a girl
Sadly, i kinda a think a lot of male mains of these champions, would be pissed off, if their mains would be changed in a VU or VGU in a way that covers them up. Its one of the reasons, in a lot of the cases, that they play them. So if this were to happen, we could at least expect some posts about their champions losing their core "identity". At least IMO.
