: Darius: Blood of Noxus
A little insight in to what exactly went in to making the Hand of Noxus we know today. There's a reason he's a champion.

: Lux and Poppy need familiars as well! They are the only two that dont.
Hey maybe they're just shy and don't wanna change out of their weapon forms.
: Please tell me this is real and cite it please

: But but but ... Kayn is not fap material :( He looks like he is around 16, how am I supposed to fap to this?! I mean the Shadowreaper form is quite hot but that's about it.....
You realise that Rhaast is still on the table right?

They will generally talk about the next new champ, the next VGU going into production as well as go into deeper details on the VGU currently in full production. So the next one should include some info on the next new champ, a deeper dive into the Swain VGU and a announcement of who the next VGU after Swain will be. > > If there is any details on the smaller gameplay updates like Xin and such I will also include that stuff. I gotta ask, not flaming or anything just curious, why was the decision made to push back eve's vgu in favour of Xin ?
There was no push back. Xin's being done by live gameplay. Eve's being done by one of the champion teams. No change has happened. If Xin comes out first it's because he was a smaller job to begin with.

That's fair, but where's her magic in those concepts? What do the dashes look like? The charm? The foxfire? Even Taric retains his magic tattoo to a degree. Lifeguard could be a great concept, I'm just looking to where the magic lies, since the vfx and sfx are what make these skins something special.
Epicurus (OCE)
: I've been sketching an Elderwood Ahri concept that looks like a cross between Elderwood LeBlanc and Skyrim's Spriggans. Ability particles are swarms of insects, her face is a mouthless mask, and her torso is an empty wooden ribcage. Not as spooky as your concept, but I think there's a lot of potential for eerie/scary Ahri skins. Hopefully next year's Ahri skin is something more interesting and not just Pool Party.
The problem with Pool Party Ahri I feel is that, in reality, many folks just wants Ahri in a bikini. There's probably a ton more interesting paths they could take there, I mean there has to be to make her work considering she's a mage with magic so her having a beachball ain't gonna cut it, but many will just want their sexy bikini Ahri. Blegh. You can be so much more imaginitive with that idea.
: I honesty think, and I know it's cheesy as hell, that the Soul stealer thematic would work wonders on her. Spooky green effects with a ivory-bone orb and topped off with purple, skeletal cowl and robe.
Yeah same. All of her skins are nice and happy and shiny, but her prime canon story is anything but. Let's see the dark side for a change.
: Riot should release a Yorick Ahri skin for next April fools
Jokes aside I feel like a horror themed Ahri skin would be cool. Tails are living snakes, her whiskers are gaps in her skin from which vile liquid spills from, stuff like that. For a Harrowing four years from now perhaps.
: Questions On The Topic of Ornn, Anivia and Volibear
The only answer I have for any of this is that if I'm remembering correctly Volibear's among the candidates for a VGU so he'll probably get one in the future. Don't know when of course or what scope since I can't remember if he's a top priority or not, but I'd imagine his VGU would be fairly extensive; he's more ordinary bear than stormbringer bear-god at this point.
tieger05 (OCE)
: What the new Star Guardian skins could have been
So uh two things: 1. You showed a concept titled ARCADE Taliyah 2. You showed a concept called POPSTAR Sona I mean you could've gone with any of these and it'd not be as much of a bother, but the Taliyah one has the name Arcade even on the image itself! http://pm1.narvii.com/5847/0f683dd5899328079fcac20ba080c9d611474f3d_hq.jpg https://pbs.twimg.com/media/C_9rT_SUIAE-61Y.jpg http://pre08.deviantart.net/cfae/th/pre/i/2016/293/4/4/star_guardian_taliyah_wip_by_inkrose98-dalorv0.png http://img11.deviantart.net/ab7d/i/2016/138/b/4/lol_skin_concept___star_guardian_taliyah_by_jeddy017_vz-da2wtoi.jpg (Note: I'm not knocking the post, but OP your choice of art to use bugs me)
: Taking that as a given isn't it a bit strange that there are 2 ppl so similar in their criminal art creation? Was there a sort of "school" like the ones for martial arts and such that believed that blood and homicides should be used for art purposes?
*Shrugs*. Runeterra's a big place, so I don't see it as being that off that people with similar mindsets, even when we're talking about murderers.
: Was Ahri and Jhin in love?
Timeline wise it doesn't work: "She grew drunk with memories that were not her own, and exhilarated in the lives of others. Through stolen visions, Ahri watched through their eyes as they pledged fealty to a temple of shadow, sacrificed offerings to a deity of the sun incarnate, encountered an avian tribe of vastaya that spoke only in song, and glimpsed mountainous landscapes unlike any she had seen. She experienced heartbreak and elation in tantalizing flashes that left her craving more, and wept at the massacres of Ionian villagers at the hands of Noxian invaders." Ahri was struggling with her addiction before she met her lover and during the course of the Noxian Invasion. Jhin was in prison at the time.
: Post your favorite skin concepts for champs who haven't received skin love.
Dark Star Urgot would be sweet. I always dug the idea of Mecha Volibear. Super Galaxy Aatrox, where he basically becomes Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagan. I feel like Irelia could make a cool PROJECT candidate. And Kalista could use a fire themed skin. The victim of arson now out for vengeance. ...That's all I've got atm. EDIT: Oh and Tahm could use a plant themed skin, where he's basically a giant man eating plant monster.
SatomiKun (EUW)
: Could be a possible explanation, but that creates a new question: How did the troll know about that? I doubt that he ever had the opportunity to witness what is happening with True Ice in the presence of the godly goat. And he doesn't seem like someone leaving a bet like that to speculation only.
You assume his ego wasn't big enough to not think his assumption was a guarantee?
SatomiKun (EUW)
: Ornn's legends: True ice shard
Well I mean I wouldn't be all that surprised if True Ice melted in Ornn's pressence. He's Ornn after all; certified molten bad ass.
: So now that Volibear is confirmed a demi-god...
The Ursine still exist, though they've changed a bit since you last saw them.

: So how many of these stories were written by Zileas?
Err none, this was written by FauxShizzle.
Limrick (NA)
: So is that a confirmation or 100% joke?
The intention was to be a joke.
: Why happened to Pool Party?
Ornn evaporated the pool. They're probably not gonna invite him back to the pool party.
: I thought this short story was his color story.
Nope, this was different. His colour story will appear with his bio.
: Well, they use the Void models
: Damn, so what do they think if they're allied with Sej? Does her tribe view them better?
Well I'll posit this to you; do you consider a bear your friend as long as it's eating your enemies and not you?
: This game mode is maybe confirming what I said on a previous thread? (about Star Guardians/the Void)
OP: "Look at the void!" Me: *cocks head at the immense amount of not purple energy in the concept art*. Me: *cocks head at Skarner, a decidedly not voidborn champion being included among the creatures.* Me: "You sure they're not something else?"
: Wow. So the Ursine are a bunch of people who made themselves look like Voli?
Essentially. The people of the Freljord don't look fondly upon the Ursine.
: What's up with Volibear's army? They're not Ursine right? Do they still exist?
They are indeed the Ursine.
: Quick on the draw as always.
It's about time I got back on the horse; been slipping in recent times.

Can I join you in the merriment?
: Or just Ashe since she can instantly apply a movement debuff with autos or her W.
Humor me: Brittle extended Ashe arrow.
Ralanr (NA)
: Nothing?
Then why's it got a horn broken off?
: aatrox vs orrn who wins?
Ornn I'd say. You don't mess with Ornn, even if you're a darkin.
Krabohod (NA)
: I know it's a dumb question - but Is he a yordle? He have this.. _I dunno.._ this primal yordle-y look. Or is he is more of a spirit? I mean, does his appearance have to do something with race or he is just looks this way with no particular reason?
: Is that slow like a mini-Trundle pillar or what? That's the wimpiest terrain in the game, it comes out too slow to do anything besides interact with his other ability
I mean that's kind of the point.
: He did the VO too? 10/10 the gruff voice and the lines really suit each other. Can't wait for more on Ornn!
To be clear he wrote the lines, but he wasn't the VO. They hire actors for that.
Penns (EUW)
: No idea what these upgrades are but why only at 6 items? For example you get... an upgraded IE with {{item:3031}} + {{item:3087}} on an adc for some more gold?
Because then the gold is equalized and everyone is at the same level of items. In the case of Ornn's team, his team would then be advantaged because his carry has that buffed Infinity Edge on someone while the other team has a regular Infinity Edge on someone.
: Can we just congratulate whoever thought of Ornns voice lines?
That comes down to FauxShizzle; Ornn's primary writer! You can thank him for the VO and lore to come!
: Why does Ornn not just craft a real weapon to fight with, like any other blacksmith would do
Penns (EUW)
: Yeah, prolly not. Azir ult is also interesting, does he just destroy the wall, get knocked back, or both? I guess he is just gonna destroy it tho.
I hope he shatters it. No damn Ascended can withstand the power of an ACTUAL Demi-god!
Arakadia (NA)
: I read that in Sol's voice ;__; Anyways, even though Elderwood aint cannon Bard has no feet!, all I see is hooves or hoof like structures! http://pre02.deviantart.net/1dde/th/pre/f/2015/287/e/e/kindred__the_eternal_hunters_by_lol3dmodels-d9d294h.jpg http://apollo-na-uploads.s3.amazonaws.com/1416123067806/24222860.jpg http://ddragon.leagueoflegends.com/cdn/img/champion/splash/Bard_1.jpg http://vignette2.wikia.nocookie.net/leagueoflegends/images/3/3c/Bard_model_1.jpg/revision/latest?cb=20150227210030 ######and both Raka and Lamb have those goat features.
I mean I always took them at stilts rather than hooves. Also in Snow Day Bard he has ice skates. HOW DOES ANYONE WITH HOOVES WEAR ICE SKATES. CHECK MATE.
: Yes, but galio and malphite have the unfair advantage of getting sculpted manliness, we must have true rippling Armstrong carries as well.
Graves come to mind but they moved him to jungle. ...Eh sod it take him bot lane I'm sure it can still work.
: We have braum, Ornn, Olaf, now we just need a manly mid lane and adc for a full Armstrong team.
Hey some people take Galio and Malphite mid. Though they lack the moustaches. ADCs...yeah they're mostly squishy sods.
Penns (EUW)
: Makes me wonder... is Camille ult "player created terrain"?
I wouldn't have said so since there's no technical walls to it. I suppose we'll leave that to Vandiril.
: Ah, of course, Odinornn.
I like this name. That's my go to name for it now.
: Jesus... Why? Do we really need more damage and just give your team a passive advantage for having him on your team?
I don't know the specifics, but I've gotta assume the upgrades put you back a bit in your item builds. Like it seems unreasonable that you could just buy Infinity Edge and it'd be just plain better; you'd have to put some extra dosh in the pot surely. EDIT: Also it's only SOME items. A small pool of items can be Ornn-ified. So some champions might not benefit since they won't use those items.
Arakadia (NA)
: I swear to god if he is a celestial then its cannon that celestials have goat features/hooves.
{{champion:136}} "Bard do you have hooves somewhere under those gaudy robes?" {{champion:432}} *Produces some form of musical response.* {{champion:136}} "Oh alright then no need to get touchy about it."
