Also why would they be wearing any of that if they're miners? I do agree that they look more Noxian and probably are, but its not 100% out of the question that they're Shuriman either.

Mostly Noxian ones and pickaxes. No Shuriman-like aesthethic to them at all. Why would you even use pickaxes IN THE DESERT for? The fact so many of them have pickaxes makes me think more about rebels in mountains. Like idk Delverhold.

: There are mages in Piltover/Zaun, we actually have an example in the game already. {{champion:81}} His lore directly states that he is gifted in magic, he just doesn't seem to be aware of it yet. And I think this is a good example why we know so little about mages from these 2 regions. You see, these regions have access to hextech and chemtech. This technology basically allows _everyone_ to utilise magic, as long as they have the specific device and are trained to use it. Which means that there is less need to actively search for natural magical talents and teaching how to use these. Instead, Piltover and Zaun will focus on training their people in the ability to craft and use hextech/chemtech. And so many magical talents in these 2 cities will simply go unnoticed, but this doesn't mean they don't exist.

They don't have mages tho. They have tech that is powered by magical crystals but Piltover and Zaun doesn't seem to have actual mages because well, it's kinda impossible to develop your magical talents in that setting. Ezreal only got to develop them because he travels a shit ton in Runeterra and got his hands on an Ancient Shuriman artefact
: Probably more common in Ionia because it's magic land. I'd also say that it's not really a matter of how rare magic is because of the politics in a region (obviously if you're a mage in Demacia it's in your best interest to move) and more an equation of population. Noxus is huge so they're going to have more there on average, not just because Noxus encourages magic. In places with relatively low populations though you're gonna have a higher mage density, if the politics allow for magic like in the Ixtal arcologies where people are probably bred to have magic and their society is based off of it because elemental magic powers the arcologies. There also seems to be a caste system based on magical potency (at least from what I can tell, the region is admittedly pretty bereft of lore). A good way to show magic exists in places where MAGES who live there aren't the focus of a REGION (aka Piltover, Zaun, Bilgewater.... Shurima to an extent) Is to build stories around it. Piltover could have mages powering hextech machinery have their jobs rendered redundant by the invention of more efficient hextech battery cells and causing them all to lose their jobs and move to Zaun. Bilgewater is listed to have an "Employ" Attitude about magic, but this is NEVER shown in the story. Wouldn't it be cool if one of the meanest gang leaders around solidified her territory by using water magic to rip people apart and even challenged MF. Lot of missing opportunities there.

S H U R I M A The last thing to have happened in Shurima that was told in a story was 5 years ago (in the timeline based on some calculations). We know nothing of what happened in those 5 years. We also know legit nothing about Nerimazeth as a city, or about Shurima's military (by Shurima's I mean Azir's) or Xerath's, or the equipment the soldiers/warriors/mercenaries from Shurima use.

And Jax canonically never joined the League because it's not canon.
: At what point in time did he struggle against the ascended? This could have easily been way before he came to the League. When he did come to the league he was undefeated. Why was he undefeated on a stage where he was fighting ascended and beyond? Cho’gath and Xerath were definitely there when this was the case. I just don’t understand why you can’t accept that perhaps Jax too gained power to surpass those beings. Plus, even superman fights in a team. A single uber powerful being cannot protect an entire continent/planet from an entire dimension of invaders. He cannot be everywhere at once. Even if he goes unscathed and defeats all he comes across, and even if his stamina is infinite, Runeterra would still fall without people to fall back on.

: I still think it's a watcher judging but the way it used those black tentacles to try to corrupt Ryze, especially the one on it's head. Keep in mind a few things : * That watcher had a very limited attacks it could use due to being behind an ice barrier * Being trapped in true ice for so long obviously weakened it quite a lot * Ryze is extremely powerful due to being marked with rune magic. So he isn't just an ordinary mage. So it was a weakened watcher fighting rune magic.

: 1) The Aspect of Targon are fighting against the void. Their pet Aurelion Sol can close void gates. 2) Ryze in his latest cinematic destroys a watcher by himself. Which is... pretty badass. 3) Humans themselves. Two humans (Kassadin and Kai'Sa) survived being in the void and gained power FROM it. 4) Darkin don't give a damn about anything now. I guess Aatrox would be kinda happy to have an endless fight if someone would have the idea to throw him in the void. Same for Rhaast. As for Varus I don't know. The darkin part of Varus is not very expressive.

Xerath started as a slave and worked his way through being the most powerful Ascended ever created.

Both could just throw a tantrum and create massive destruction. > > Also you can't call Syndra and Xerath pansies. You may not consider them badass, that's your opinion. But pansies? After what they've been through -which may not be as bad as other champions, it doesn't change that simple fact- and where they still are, and how powerful they are, calling them pansies? Ok, maybe they are mental or emotional pansies. Sure they had to ENDURE a great bunch. But ENDURING or SURVIVING something does not make a badass. But no, specializing in a combat form that involves little grit or true risk isn't all the badass. It may be other things, like smart, or devious, or underhanded, or whatever. But not badass. Not by a long shot. If the context was, who is more powerful? sure, syndra and xerath are more powerful than jax. They may be wiser, more cunning, or whatever. But they don't have the gritty physical determination to pair WITH their power to be truly badass. This isn't me calling jax stupid either, just that he's a courageous fighter. There is nothing really to assume that syndra or xerath exemplify any heroic level of courage. Again, enduring slavery and surviving don't automatically make you courageous or badass. What's more, champs like jax and darius display more badass traits that can be EMULATED. Sure, it's a fantasy world, but xerath and syndra can hardly be emulated. Their entire power sources are basically arbitrary for that matter. Someone said that a marine is not as badass as them. Well, I'm not a member of the military, but I take some exception to that argument. Characters like jax and darius represent real life warriors like marines. Xerath and syndra are pure make believe. This also constitutes my reply RyzetheSmurfMage and PaleMask

: His lore in the past was vague, and his past was unknown. The point is he too has clearly transcended beyond mortal power levels; he just doesn’t ooze his power everywhere uncontrollably to show it. Perhaps like something out of an Eastern cultivation novel, Jax’s “mysterious past” and his utmost prowess is intended to hint at him possessing a power that he is half assedly concealing behind being a grandmaster at arms. A grandmaster at arms does not simply kill an ascended or fend off the void and the shadow isles and win consistently.

: That’s the thing, his title is grandmaster at arms but... that doesn’t necessarily encompass his whole combat prowess? He wins over beings like Cho’gath, Syndra, Xerath, and others with perhaps what seems to be sheer skill but definitely has beneath it some supernatural power. It’s not like he’s just a human being with insane mastery of weaponry; he’s... something beyond. The whole point behind his story was that him just being a mercenary that is an arms grandmaster that just randomly shows up is too cooked up to actually fit him. That’s his alias, but obviously one he doesn’t put much effort into keeping, as he’s clearly too skilled to be _just_ a human grandmaster at arms.

But in Runeterra (even the one back then), with champions such as Syndra or Xerath or... Well you get the point, I'm not sure a simple mastery weapons is enough to make you "the most powerful being". This is why I don't view him as _the_ badass. I mean it's completely objective anyway but surely you'll understand what I mean! But being badass just revolve around objective or relative power. It's also about personality, grit, being about action and not just words, etc. I'd even argue that neither xerath or syndra are badass at all. they're kind of pansies when you get right down to it. Jax's lore may be written in silly manner, and I may have bashed it previously in this very same thread, but jax is most certainly a badass (if not the most badass), and certainly more badass than paddycake xerath and hopscotch syndra. Think of it this way. Archers were very dangerous in medieval times, especially longbow men and crossbowmen when used properly in battle. But the swordsmen and knights on horseback were FAR more respected. They were widely looked upon as the true badasses, because they were physical and had to look their enemy in the eye and subject themselves to a far greater risk of harm. If I were being honest here, I'd place champs like azir, xerath, syndra, etc, at the back end of any compiled list of league badasses ranked 1-150.

Xerath def. Aspects need a lot of time to grow to their full strenght. Most of our Aspect champs are young and thus quite weak with the exception of Zoe, the only fully developed Aspect. Meanwhile Xerath is the strongest Ascended ever. It's not rly a contest Also, Diana didn't "slaughter entire hordes of Voidborns". She killed a bunch. The Ascended fought one of the biggest Void invasions in the history of Runeterra
: Which region of Runeterra would you like to live in?
Although it's my favourite region, DEFINETLY NOT Shurima. The chance of getting killed there is super high. Same goes to Noxus. Demacia would be the best option imo as long as you aren't a mage. Piltover too

: 2019 Immortal Journey Splashes, Ryze and Amumu too.
: It's Hard To Reconcile J4's Character Now
Demacia has a big flaw yes. Does that make it overall iremediably evil? No. Jarvan's father just got murdered presumably by one of the mages that joined Sylas as far as we know. Demacians already didn't like magic in the slightest. Mageseekers have a LOT of power in ruling Demacia, and Jarvan is trying to keep the country together rn to combat the rebellion. Suddenly freeing all mages would cause even more confusion and de-organisation and even more civil war in the Demacian society. Plus rn it's Jarvan's only big flaw, and I'd say it's a very realistic well done one at that. Also he isnt butchering kids. Not saying imprisoning them is right but its not as bad as killing them (looking at you Anakin Skywalker)
: Darkin vs Demons who are more powerful?
Darkins obviously. They are basically corrupted Ascended. The strongest of them, Aatrox, killed Pantheon, but not the host, the CONCEPT ITSELF. Demons have no feats nor statements that can compare them to Ascended or Darkins

: Earning the title of Sovereign - Possible directions for Syndra's lore
Power usually comes with a price Syndra is so powerful in exchange for getting no lore
: Ezreal cinematic
It would be waaay too similar to Call of Power so no Riot wouldn't do that
: Is Morgana mentioned in Lux: Issue #4?
Yes. Kayle too when Sylas was using the fire
Adder (OCE)
: I didn't say he went toe-to-toe, but he at least had the ability in numbers to take down an ascended. Now, with 3000+ years experience, I think he could at least put up a fight now.

Each Ascended, even the mid-tier/low tier ones, are magical powerhouses. Not to mention the huge physical stat difference. When there's a gap that big, experience doesn't matter
Adder (OCE)
: Could modern day Jax 1v1 an ascended?
https://cdn.discordapp.com/attachments/457316449594245150/617378421156216833/a37_4.jpg He didn't go toe to toe with an Ascended, he needed the help of the Kohari, which were the high elites of Icathia, and they had to topple down HALF A FUCKING MOUNTAIN just to incap the Ascended. An Ascended would murder-shitstomp Jax in a 1v1

: I think its mostly just a "big bad guy, people scared to stand up to him" generic plothole. Xerath can pretty much just vaporize anyone who he doesn't like and wipe out families / destroying homes from far away. As for renekton, you can`t really blame xerath, Renekton may be ascended but he is still a biological creature that was stuck inside that tomb with xerath for such a long time that he would have gone insane regardless, xerath was just there to abuse that and without a biological body he couldn't be tortured by the perception of time (although he still understands time).

He literally mind controls hundreds of warriors in Bloodline as stated by Nasus

Wellllll.....that's understandable which is why I'm hoping that at least one of Riot's future game projects is lore related

Then why are you trying to make us think it's something canon/confirmed?
