: Oh this person again. Yeah, no. You didn't fix shit. It still looks god awful. Seriously, let the professionals handle it and stop insulting this skin with your hackjob of an animation done in MS Paint. Jesus Christ.
This wasn't mine and i clearly stated that. I have the right to not be satisfied and professionals aren't flawless. It's sad that you are thinking im plugging myself and insulting the person that tried to add more animations and using it as an argument. If you actually want to argue against me i want actual points.
: Even if they represent only about 12% of the champ roster, ADC occupies about 27% of skin releases..
Most people don't care about prestige skins and you could say the same thing with other mages. The recent skin releases were mostly adc yes but mages do get way more attention when it comes to skins overall.

: I love Jhin and I love the Dark Star skin line and I do not love this skin. I feel very different about it than you do it seems. There's a LOT wrong with it to me and I honestly feel like most of it should be scrapped (despite knowing full well there's absolutely no chance of that happening). My biggest issue is the voice over. Jhin just isn't Jhin without certain subtle details in his voice that are very lacking with this skin. There's no hint of the beast lying in wait under a calm exterior. It's dull, drab, and disappointing. Some of it might be the acting but I think most of it is the processing and the writing. Too much turning the pitch up at the end of sentences that just takes all the weight out of so many lines. A lot of straight up poor writing (so many obtuse lines!). The echo in his voice is far too airy and light (just like Project). Some of the passionate lines are devoid of the breathy whisps and bestial snarls that clue you into the level of psychotic killer lurking within. The jokes aren't funny. The lack of whimsy on the few occasions it should exist is painful. Some of his lines are straight up cringey. Most of the pretentious lines are completely devoid of subtly. So many lines are boring, egotistical, nonsense which feels so out of place for Jhin. And throughout his emphatic lines the emphasis or the line as a whole often doesn't match up with either the trigger or purpose of the line. For example, his pentakill line is great, except that it's far too tame for a pentakill. Jhin passionately revels in the heights of his artistry. That line would be much better used for a less dramatic moment. In particular his most common lines when just moving around, killing minions, and casting his basic abilities are such a let down. They're dull at best. And as you said, there are too few common lines (his interactions with other skins seem to have eaten up a lot of his VO). Occasional whispers of madness and poetry are a hallmark of what makes Jhin aesthetically pleasing to play. But when a few lines are repeated so often and many of his better lines are an interaction with another skin that feeling is severely lacking. To be fair there are a few diamonds in the rough among his lines, but far too few. The next biggest issue I have with the skin is the entire tone of the visuals, particularly the colors. It's too bright! This is supposed to be DARK Cosmic Jhin, not Pastel Purple Jhin. His outfit is a slew of different colors but they are nearly all brighter than even the splash art shows, which itself I feel is a little too bright. The lack of darkness both literal and metaphorical is an issue not only with the model but the effects as well. So many pretty sparkly stars... This is *Dark Cosmic Jhin!* This skin should be so edgy you can split hairs with it. Also, why four arms? Is it really just because "4"? The other arms seem to serve no interesting purpose and they screw up his silhouette, making him look oddly bulky yet scrawny at the same time. It'd be better if he just had two but those two left visual trails sometimes that look like his current two extra ghostly arms. The splash art barely even features destruction, something that should be a key theme for this skin, yet is nearly entirely absent. It should make you feel like Dark Star Thresh's splash art does at least. The 4 pointed star on his forehead should just be deleted along with his ghostly arms. The thing on his shoulder is a little too big. Why is he wading through a glowy oil spill and turning a lone grey lump of a planet into a ring instead bringing oblivion to stars and more? As a whole the skin reminds me heavily of the Morgana visual update and I mean that in the most, "please throw it in the trash, light it on fire, and start over" way possible.

I will actually have to disagree on most points made here. The skin looks absolutely amazing, the splash doesn't need to be as destructive as every other dark star skin. The splash gives off the impression of a god figure elegantly gliding over the universe and creating beautiful destruction. The model looks very nice although i also don't see a need for 4 arms and it doesn't bring much to the skin. I have 0 complaints about the effects i just wish he actually held whisper while firing and while ulting. Now the voice lines are a bit lackluster and i also do agree that the interactions ate up the majority of the VO and i wish he had more of his character implemented into his quotes. Overall i really love this skin i just wish there was more of Jhin and less of dark cosmic.
