: Why is getting double or triple of one drake harder? Just elder spawns earlier so less drakes?
Because there is a new rule in place that says that the first 3 dragons of a game **must** be unique. So before, it was possible to get 3 of the same drakes right from the start. Now your first 3 drakes will all be different, **then** you get the opportunity to get 2 more of one you already have to get a triple bonus.

: At the end of the year there will be a prestige point store that has tons of loot for lower prices Emotes, wards, keys, jackpot bags, OE etc
Really? Huh, didn't know that. That's good news for me, I will have 52 points after the mission today and thought they will just expire without giving me anything.
: Teemo shrooms are a neat way to keep the drug reference light-hearted enough so that the game can appeal to kids. It's still League of Legends and you need to communicate somehow that the Zaun are the "rough and tumble" streets, but the tone is a bit lighter. Goofy looking characters bartering over shrooms is a bit sillier then watching some hopeless dreg of the Sump OD on shimmer in the gutter. Riot wisely filters adult content through layers of their IP to appeal to everyone on some level. Lore: Horrific eldritch creatures stalk the night feasting on the unwitting, uncaring space entities use and then cast aside mortals like toys highlighting the futility of human self-determination, an endless cycle of self-destructive wars and magical atrocities claims the lives of untold innocents as man refuses to learn that power is impossible to resist... MOBA: Some champs have blood splatter effects like Yasuo and Darius but Rito is quietly trying to remove some of the violent imagery from the game. A bunch of the champions are scary, edgy or nihilistic, but are balanced by whimsical options as well. Card Game: It's all so colorful! Look a rock concert in the Sump! Hehe POROS KAWAII DESUUUU!
Good explanation, but there is still one detail missing. Teemo (as far as we know) does not reside in Zaun. Keep in mind that Riot is planning to add the other regions of the game in the future. If they are going to add Bandle City as an own deck, then it will be awkward that they put Teemo in the Piltover/Zaun deck instead of Bandle City. Some people say that they might move him to Bandle City and replace him with Twitch in the Zaunite deck, but I kinda doubt that since they designed so many Zaunite cards around his shrooms now.
: because Mordekaiser is already a champion, and Ledros being a champion would be like if Riot released another Brackern ({{champion:72}}) or another scarecrow {{champion:9}} the niche of "spooky suit of armor ghost warrior guy" has already been filled. sure, his sword/shield looks unique, but that's the main thing that's unique about him.
Well, designwise there are some precedences for that, aren't there? There has already been a living tree guy in the game: {{champion:57}} But they gave us another one: {{champion:427}} Both are in appearance just an interpretation of an "ent", what makes them different from each other are their personalities, lore, abilities.
Arakadia (NA)
: Despite your sarcasm, that is exactly my point. He is (somewhat) special, but he doesn't look like it in that art.
Maybe you can elaborate a bit more here. I really don't see what makes Mordekaiser's design stand out more as "championworthy" than Ledros. Both are wraiths in metal armor for me, I don't really see why Mordekaiser is more special in your eyes than Ledros when it comes to appearance.
: Yeah, that's how we did the base Lux update in the past! But I do want to warn people on the boards (since there are a lot of posts about LoR VO). Legends of Runeterra recording sessions can't be used for League of Legends content. Separate contracts and signatories. To work with the best talent we have to respect these limits. The new VO Lucian is getting is because Champions team thought it was important, and we carved out the resources and time necessary in this case. From the beginning, when Reav3 was pitching Senna, part of the pitch was a Lucian update. {{sticker:slayer-jinx-catface}}
Related to this topic: Why didn't you guys give us a new VO for Caitlyn back when you made her legendary Pulsefire skin? Hers is pretty outdated too, yet nothing happened as far as we know while you put the effort into Lux and Ashe....

: Marai we know about and don't live near Ionia. Makara are most likely shark like based on description (there is a theory that Shark Aatrox is one of those holding his sword), so out of the 3 Raylu seems the most logical choice however, only 3 types in the sea and all 3 fish like, no crustaceans? I dunno. That said, the Sea isn't a River. Eduard Santangelo's drawing might have been just based on what he observed as there appears to be a few tribes of the sky and Rakan and Xayah, even though they have wings are part of the Lhotlan tribe (land based). That leaves only 5 to 6 tribes for ALL other types of creature to walk. Wukong is Shimon. Ahri is unknown. But none are listed as river.
If I remember correctly, then it got mentioned somewhere that the Makara are crustacean and not shark-based.
: Also a little wink wink nudge nudge to Riot ADD THESE TO THE LEAGUE DISPLAYS PROGRAM PLEEEEEEAAAASE
Aren't they already? I just know the Zaun page in that program, but it has quite some good pictures of that city.
: while kayn came out in 2017 hes only gotten 2 skins compared to kaisa who came out in 2018 has FOUR skins INCLUDING prestige.
Yeah, but he already got a legendary one also. And in the same sentence you say that these champions have waited over 1000 days for a new skin, that doesn't apply to Kayn either. Kayn has no business in that list in my opinion, but I agree with the general massage. But in the end, Riot has to make some money... and they have put some effort in less popular champions in the last time, we have to give them that.
: Hey riot, I know money is important for a business but please
I don't know if this is supposed to be a joke or something, but why the HELL did you list Kayn there????
: Surprise Party Fiddle Sticks = IT?
It would be a real shame if they wouldn't reference IT in some way for that skin.
: A list of champions that are unfun to play against?
Viktor? I mean, yeah, when Tank Viktor was a thing, sure. But as far as I know, this build is pretty much removed now, isn't it? And I don't see anyone complain about Viktor as long as he doesn't run tank.
: The Spirit of Ionia is more of a force than an entity, though, if I'm not mistaken.
It could be both, like Nagakabouros (excuse me, I mean Nagawhateverthefuck).
Zira (NA)
: Wow, Senna is the first champ I've been looking forward to since Nami
_Sigh_ Really glad for you that there is something you can enjoy in the near future. I am a bit sad since there is still nothing on the horizon for me.... Next new champions after Senna will be Targonian and Ionian, reworks are Fiddlesticks and Volibear. Hopefully the new "edgy solo lane carry" will either be a Piltovan or Zaunite, so I can have a new toy finally. Whimsical jungler surely won't be from these regions.
: she who wanders... riot will nerf that card for sure. its way too strong. but i really love her art. i can imagine myself playing shadow of the colossus and suddenly that giant lady just wanders around.
Ok, so I had to look this up. What even is that?
: Apparently Teemo's shrooms are a drug of sorts in Zaun. They are seen in most of the Zaun cards as well. I agree though, its weird to see him there.
Well, they could have done the same in other ways. For example there is that drug known as shimmer, if I remember correctly then it is made out of waste from creating artificial Hextech crystals? They could have made cards with that shimmer thematic, maybe connect it with the canisters which are in the card game as well. Using these shrooms feels kinda misplaced in Zaun.
Sukishoo (NA)
: Well, Ashe sort of did. She hadn't had any changes to VO since Lissandra was added, so having some actual interactions with other champions is nice (as well as some of the other stuff they added). They Hers wasn't just the same 10 or so lines over and over like Cait, but it at least gave her some more personality now. They did say they want to look for more opportunities like that to update other ones. They probably started to think of doing it more after the recent Lee Sin change, and Ashe just happened to be their next legendary for an older champion, so it was a good time when they planned it.
The new VO is nice, yeah. But there wasn't really something that makes it _urgent_. The VO was kinda bland, but at least it wasn't contradicting the actual lore like the VOs of many other champions. That's what I mean. It is nice to have, but it didn't really feel needed, just like a nice add on. And you make it sound like it was a fun little coincidence, but honestly, at this point it doesn't feel like one anymore. It really feels like Riot is neglecting some champions completely on purpose.
: Jhin. This game needs Jhin. Throw in some more crazy Ionian wildlife too.
I gotta say, I was a bit disappointed with the champions they have chosen to represent Piltover and Zaun as well. We hae Jinx, that's great. Heimerdinger..... not really the first Piltovian coming to my mind, but fine. Token Ezreal.... And the weirdest thing of all: TEEMO?! Why the hell is Teemo in the Piltover deck? It doesn't make sense, they should have left him if they will make a Bandle City deck some day. He doesn't fit in these cities.... There are so many great champions they could have picked, like Urgot, Camille, Caitlyn, Singed.... And got god damn Teemo. ;__;

: Is there anywhere where I can find all the cards/art? I have some great champ ideas but am not the best artist, so would like to steal the designs. If they already exist, why not?
https://rankedboost.com/legends-of-runeterra/ First I encountered so far to look at them was this site.
: Idk where to find the actual cards, but. https://i.imgur.com/zyywj4i.png[]
Well, personally I would prefer the first Chembaron champion in the game not to be a joke.... But yeah, I can see why people would enjoy seeing these guys fooling everyone. Also, here you can take a look at the cards: https://rankedboost.com/legends-of-runeterra/
: Corina Veraza by far! Like she looks like a benevolent version of Zyra. Seems to also be dominating the plants and nature.
I don't know if she is really "dominating" plants (I guess you mean in the way that she can control them like Zyra?). I think she is just researching them and using biology for crafts. She criticises Piltover for just using steel for their creations, while she thinks that living cells hold much greater power. So maybe she is some kind of bio-engineer, but I kinda doubt that she really controls plants.

Got the icons and the masterpiece chest... I really have to remember to log in daily so I won't miss all these skin shards. x__x
Rioter Comments
Sukishoo (NA)
: Time. It takes time. Things don't always happen back to back like Lux with Elemantalist or Ashe with High noon. So that is why Cait didn't have one with Pulsefire. They don't always have the time or resources that are needed to commit to a project like that.
While this is true, it still is kinda weird that they did commit to giving it to Ashe... she wasn't really an urgent case, I don't remember that she ever got mentioned when people were discussing which champions are in need of a new VO. Yet they invested the ressources into Ashe, while they had the opportunity to do the same for Caitlyn, which is actually a champion who needs work.... (not just VO, new looks as well).
darkdill (NA)
: So which Champions are just never going to get a VO update?
{{champion:53}} {{champion:61}} Still sound like terminators, while their lore suggests that they are gentle af.
Sukishoo (NA)
: Well from what has been gathered, it is possible that True Damage is before her joining K/DA as she is supposed to be a well known rapper based on the K/DA lore.
Which is still kinda lame, tbh. They are basically just repeating the thing they did with Popstar Ahri, which was her as a solist, before she joined K/DA. Now it is just Akali who was in another band before K/DA... Like, come on, they already did this thing. What's going to happen next, we get a new Punk Rock band and Kai'Sa gets a skin alongside "because she was a member of a Punk Rock band before"?
Sukishoo (NA)
: True Damage skins T-Shirt leaked.
Okay, maybe I am the minority here, but I think it is kinda BS that they put Akali in **another** band skin line instead of another champion.... She already is in K/DA, why now in True Damage, too?
: @ Chembaron Yamada
Yes yes yes yes yes yes yes This is a dream coming true, I can't wait to see this!
And it is about Jinx and Vi, finally the secret will be revealed! I am so absolutely overhyped for this, AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH!!!!!!!!!!
Terozu (NA)
: Swain is canonically banging LeBlanc. Confirmed by him.
Not sure if we can really say that they are doing it canonically. Or did I miss anything? I just recall his quote saying they are "enemies with benefits". While yes, this is an innuendo, but it's really just that. He could as well mean that they are enemies which are tolerating each other since they tend to be useful for each other from time to time. It is not really a confirmation that they are having sex.
: Which way to interprate Garen would you prefer?
Since you asked, I prefer Katarina and Garen having canonically romantic feelings for each other. You can't control feelings, it doesn't matter that you think he shouldn't feel this way for a "competitor" and that a noble warrior shouldn't love an unhonorable assassin, but such things happen. Love isn't always logical, many times you can't even explain why you feel attracted to a person. I am actually in the same situation right now, I am in love with someone I shouldn't be in love with, but here I am. And I see no way to interpret the quotes for Garen and Katarina as him just seeing her as a sister or comrade. Many quotes are quite literally calling out romance between them, this leaves little room for this claim.
: Whose lore would you like to see expanded on the most?
{{champion:222}} Simply because I want to know the big secret of her past and how it connects her with other champions like Vi and Warwick.

Other than that and his W, though, he has no mobility. Yeah, I actually forgot him. Sorry. It's hard to keep track of everyone when trying to list them out of the blue
Yep. You also forgot Kog'Maw and Varus. While Varus has at least his ult to root enemies and escape, Kog'Maw is another example of an ADC with no defensive tool except an AoE slow.
Terozu (NA)
: Apparently this was an early concept for SG Zoe.
Her clothing style is actually what I would really enjoy if they would finally create a Star Guardian Caitlyn. Especially the beret, Caitlyn **needs** a beret for such a skin!
: (Champion Concept) Crowley the Criminal Mastermind
**Character Design and Lore** I gotta say, you created something I am really interested in when it comes to lore here. A criminal associated with Piltover is something I want for a really long time, since all the champions from there kinda seem like good guys. The only criminal we hear Caitlyn and Vi actively fight against is Jinx. So this is a big plus for me, especially since his mindful and strategic approach to crime differentiates him so much from Jinx. I also really like the idea to give his hextech an energy source that is **not** a brackern crystal, powered by void energy instead. In the end, hextch just means harnessing magical power with technology and I think there can (and should) be other sources of power for such devices besides natural and aesthetical brackern crystals. Just _one_ tiny detail and I really don't want to come off as negative here, but his design is pretty "basic". I think he could use a detail that makes his silhouette really stand out among the champions, something that gives away on the screen "THIS is Crowley, you can tell immediately!". ______________________________ **Gameplay and Kit** I try to figure out what he is supposed to be gameplay-wise. Is he supposed to be an AP-diver, able to go into a fight with his grappler and do constant dps with his Q? Or is he supposed to be more on the side of an assassin? His invisibility kinda speaks for it for me, but I am not sure if Crowley would be good enough at escaping to really work as an assassin. I like the idea of his drones, tho. Was experimenting with some kind of explosive wards in an own concept and I think this idea is really something we could use in the game. In general, I think the kit works out quite well and there is nothing really standing out as problematic for me here. Just thematically, I think you could work something out a bit. For example, his cane uses void energy instead of the usual hextech crystal for power. I think you could try to build something in the kit to emphasise this. Void champions are kinda known to have alot of true damage, maybe you could could make his passive deal partly true damage instead of it all being magic damage? _______________________________ **Facit** I enjoyed your concept and I think your champion has quite some potential. Nothing really standing out for me that tells me "no, this should not happen". Sure, there are some little tiny details I think you can iron out here and there, but in general you did a great job here in my opinion.
Terozu (NA)
: And this is why I made Elvine for fun. I'd love to explore the concept of a mage who actually relies on their latent talents despite having grown up there. (thx for your input on her btw, I'm revising things and am gonna repost her eventually, hope you chime in again then!)
Looking forward to it, these days I can be a bit busy and I am not as frequently on the boards as before, so I would like if you could tell me when you uploaded it just to make sure I don't miss it. Really enjoyed the picture you have drawn of Elvine btw, it was adorable. ^^
Salron88 (EUW)
: is illaoi damage normal?
In my experince, yeah. As long as she does hit just a single one of her spells, she will outtrade you, even if you managed to hit a complete rotation.
: The Ornn E still did damage to him so It doesn't make sense on why it wouldn't knock him up.
I watched the video again in super slow motion and as it seems, Jarvan IV just took damage from the dash itself. It seems their hitboxes overlapped a bit and the initial dash from Ornn's E deals damage if he dashes through enemies, even if he doesn't connect with any wall in the end. I could be wrong, but this is what I think happens here. Maybe you can test it with a friend?
: League of legends Fan made Card Game
I love this. Would like to see some more champion card designs, did you already design some from Zaun or Piltover? :3

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
Maybe we have different definitions for "mages" here. When I say mages, then I mean people who are born with an inherent magical talent. Therefore, Ezreal is a mage in my eyes. And he won't be the only one in Piltover/Zaun, these talents are just not discovered because the environment doesn't encourage it. Instead, they focus on their magic-harnessing technology.
Lapis (OCE)
: Are mages in Runeterra more common in specific regions?
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.
: Ornn breaks enemy made terrrain!
As far as I know, the E does still knock up in both cases (connection with enemy and ally terrain). In 2:30, it didn't knock anyone up because the enemies all have been out of range it seems.
: Why do you ban Morgana? (Poll)
My current favourite support to play is Blitzcrank and she counters him, so I always ban Morg when I am playing in the support role.
: Big issue I have with Darius atm
I can see why you might think that, but I honestly don't think it will happen anytime soon... or should.... You see, even if you think his voice doesn't match the character that well, there are champions with much worse voice overs. If all the urgent cases are out of the way, then maybe they could also give new voice lines to champions like Darius, Garen, and all these. But it will take alot of time.
: Vision is a huge factor as well. Especially on Talon, who roams a lot and would be building a Duskblade to sweep wards.
I am honestly not too sure if it really accounts that much for the grade. I had quite some games with absolutely terrible vision score and I still got S grades for them.
: Also some rando guy somehow managed to create a machine which knows location of everyone in Runeterra so anything really sounds like something he could do. Unless he spent all living time on that machine.
The person who invented the Incognium Runeterra is (as far as I know) missing, she disappeared. Sounds a bit like Camille didn't approve of her invention, if you ask me. But yeah, with inventions like these, it really shouldn't be hard for Piltovians to build something that can fly. We also know that Riot at least considered giving us a jetpack champion when they designed Husk back then. Even if she got scratched, then it seems that jetpacks at least are technologically possible in these cities. And building an airship is **way** easier than building a combat-functioning jetpack.
: Airships still Canon?
Well, there surely will be some kind of aircrafts from Piltover. I don't know if it's still in form of these airships, it could be that they are even further advanced. We got Camille, who is a fairly modern cyborg, so designing some vehicles to fly shouldn't be such a big deal for Piltover in the end.
