I know you mentioned wanting a badass skin and I'd love that too, buuuuut I'm still crossing my fingers for Pool Party Aatrox at some point.

: Can we please move Shurima forward?
I'm really craving a new champion from Shurima. I'd love to see an Ascended similar to Bastet, but really I'd be happy with anything. Even if it's not a champion that moves Shurima's story forward I'd be fine with that tbh. Shurima desperately needs to progress imo. It feels like it's getting left in the dust and that makes me sad as its my favorite region!
: Worldbuilding - Your Turn! Part III
Not really an idea so much as something I'd love to see explored more, but I'd love to see all the different holidays that get celebrated in the different regions! I wanna see what each region values enough to celebrate and maybe even sometimes throw a party of some kind for y'know? I don't know why but I get this vibe that ancient Shurimans partied hard, not even necessarily tied to holidays, particularly the upper class of ancient Shurima. That's the kind of fun stuff I'd like to see more of!
: @Riot, listen to Vlad players feedback this time (Legends of Runeterra splashes)
Honestly even just removing the little cowlick hair thing he's got would be a small but much needed improvement. That bit always looked strange to me, like he's an ice cream cone or a turnip : (

: Can we make Aatrox's taunts towards Varus and Rhaast work when they're on Aatrox's team as well?
: Aatrox's "joke" and taunt
Hi there! GreenLore is right, the reason this is the way it is was due to miscommunication. Here's a post where its explained in more detail: https://boards.na.leagueoflegends.com/en/c/story-art/j0LIAGGr-aatrox-taunt-sounds-like-it-should-be-joke-meanwhile-his-joke-is-completely-silent-why?comment=0001 And the TL;DR: >"TLDR my fault. I think we briefly put a line from another bucket in there-- but then it felt weird (As it was just a taunt in the wrong place) There was talk of having him hum or whistle. It's currently unresolved. When I do my next champs VO session, I'm gonna make something and then steal some time from my sound guy to fix it." I was hoping we'd get some resolution on this by now considering I thiiiiiiink Odin/WAAARGHbobo was doing VO things for Ashe's new skin/her voice update relatively recently. But as of right now this still seems to be unresolved. I think the idea of Aatrox humming or whistling something would be pretty cute, but I'm guessing if anything they're just gonna move some lines around at some point since getting the voice actor back in to just hum or whistle would probably be a tad silly/expensive.

{{champion:266}} Our little baby, off to destroy ~~people~~ gods.
: Sorry, I'm blind. Where is Aatrox?
His head is the backdrop behind Pantheon. On either side of Pantheon's head/shoulders you can see Aatrox's eyes and from there spotting the rest of his head should be easy!
: Not dead but back in the weapon/cage until someone takes him.
I discussed this earlier with someone else but... it's even entirely possible even that _The Cage_ takes place after this story so he already has a body again. The timeline is a bit confusing to me though so I'm not sure.
: Any idea how exactly did aatrox cut off the aspect but not kill the weak fleshy host?
Not entirely sure if I'm honest. Hopefully its something that gets explained when Pantheon's AMA comes around or possibly in Pantheon's color story.
Zemasu (EUW)
: But so at the end Aatrox is dead? :O
Back in his sword if anything. Not being able to be killed is kinda Aatrox's thing and I doubt they would leave something as important as him dying as ambiguous as they did if that's what they were going for.

: The prestige female skins are also rather revealing and the splash arts are quite seductive. While prestige Aatrox is over here covered in armor. And to pick Aatrox of all people, one of the ugliest champs in the game. Why do the female skins make them look more attractive while the Aatrox skin makes him look repulsive?
Aatrox isn't a pretty boy like Ezreal or Taric, but one of the ugliest champs in the game? That's a bit of a stretch. I'm a little biased, mind you, but I find him attractive in an unconventional way at the very least. While I personally find the base skin more attractive than his blood moon/prestige he (in his splash at least) has arguably more conventionally attractive human features in that skin. The in game model leaves something the be desired in the face area admittedly, but I can tell what they were going for. And while Aatrox certainly has a lot of armor in that skin he also has this "shirt mostly off" kinda thing going on where he shows off his pecs and abs. Something about the way his "shirt" is lightly slipping off of him speaks more toward a "female gaze" of attractiveness rather than the typical macho male fantasy that you might get with a character like this and as a girl who mains Aatrox I can appreciate what they were going for here, intentional or not. I find that attractive, personally. ~~Apologies if your post was sarcasm and I just didn't pick up on it, I just woke up, saw this, and had to defend my man. ~~

: Come discord. ;)
Perhaps I shall >;3c EDIT: I'm gonna put this here too for those of you not in the discord who might be passing thru and want to see. Okay so ya’ll wanted to hear my theory about the Hierophant of Zuretta so here goes. It is completely based upon nothing and is 100% tin foil hattery so don’t say I didn’t warn you. No flame pls. The Hierophant of Zuretta is not Setaka’s true descendant, however, Setaka’s true descendants did live in that city at some point... she just... got rid of them to keep her claim to power. She sends those descendants on an impossible quest to the jungle that they can’t refuse in the hopes that they will die there and she will maintain her seat of power. It half works... one of the descendants does die there with their husband, however the other lives - her infant daughter that she had to take with her for plot reasons idk. That infant ends up growing up to being the Nidalee we all know and love. Her ability to shape shift into a cougar is some result of latent magic passed down from her Ascended ancestor who’s form was also a big cat. ~~Pharaoh Nidalee could be an AU where her family claims the power that is rightfully theirs. At least appearance wise.~~ Anyway, complete crack founded on nothing. I think I first thought of this before Nidalee got her lore update and honestly I don’t even remember much of what was in that update so it could be completely debunked by now but yeah. _Jazz hands._

: Mysteries of Shurima to explore in the future (ideas)
All of these mysteries interest and intrigue me but I think the one that interests me the most is the truth behind Zuretta. I have a theory or two about her, but its mostly unfounded tbh so I'll have to wait and see if we get more information before I can spin the theory further. ~~Or I can tell you now if you'd like to see some real tin foil hatting. Your choice.~~

: Riot shouldn't be afraid to kill off champions for the sake of lore
As long as the characters in question get a good chunk of lore and development before their deaths I'm fine with it. I just hate when characters are killed off suddenly for "shock" and get their stories cut off prematurely when it looked like it might go somewhere just to surprise the audience or whatever the usual excuse for such an action is. I don't think anyone likes when that happens with their faves. Wasted potential... that stuff's the worst.
: I have a feeling as an Ascended hero Aatrox was the dude who took things really, really seriously. By how easily he gets triggered by Taric's luscious and long flowing hair, or Rhaast's impractical weapon of choice I'm guessing the dude had a very strict and rigid vision of what a "true" warrior was. So I feel he'd be a very scary teacher. Or at least the type of professor everyone was afraid of, but when he tried to make jokes no one knew if he was being genuine or not and ended up making them even more scared.
OMG scary professor Aatrox. I'm loving the mental image of that.
Rioter Comments
: She takes inspiration from Bowsette/the Mario games if I'm not mistaken, so I can honestly understand them wanting her to appear more "normal" or "human" for the skin. Though, I still think they could have executed it better in that regard to still give it that classic "Battle Boss" feel while having it stand out. The robotic one, while being more true to the Battle Boss theme, doesn't really feel... Right. It doesn't give me the same impression that the human version does.
Bowsette omg, that makes sense. I can definitely see the inspiration. If that was the intention then yeah that fits and works. While I don't think the robotic one is perfect I still like the ideas it was putting forward, it feels like a step in the right direction, for me at least, with keeping in line with the Battle Boss aesthetic. But like I said in my post I actually don't mind Battle Boss Qiyana as she is currently too terribly either, but I agree they could still do more to bring her in line with that Battle Boss feel. That said if I had to guess I'd say the real issue here is that _both _new Battle Boss skins are more normal/human than the average. That's probably the crux of why folks were thrown off. If one had been more weird and the other human it probably would have been a better balance and not felt so jarring.

: Overall what did you all think of the Darkin Lore Update?
It's part of what got me into League (aside from just Aatrox himself) so I'm a _tad_ biased, but I like the current lore for the darkin. I know a big complaint people have is that by making them connected to Shurima it makes things too insular and too Runeterra-centered and I totally respect that, but for me I feel the opposite. I like them being connected to a Runeterran culture rather than being otherworldly beings. To me the latter makes them feel too _disconnected_. Having them be otherworldly beings makes any justification for them being a part of Runeterran happenings risk feeling tacked on or cheap "They're here because... uh... reasons! We'll explain it later maybe." y'know? Probably why they changed characters like Morgana and Kayle into descendants of an Aspect rather than keeping them angels from another dimension too. They Aspects themselves, though otherworldly, still feel more connected to Runeterra than both of those concepts of extra-dimensional beings to me at least. So it's a worth it trade off in K&M's case. Also them being humans turned ascended and later darkin gives them a more grounded feel to me, it gives them more humanity, and makes them overall more interesting and rounded characters to me. I don't mind our flatter more single-minded characters such as demons with singular goals from their conception, but they're just not the sort of character that interests me very much personally. Like, I like Evelynn but I don't feel I could deeply analyze her character and motivations as thoroughly as I have someone like current Aatrox. That's just my take on it though - I know my opinions aren't universal and that a good chunk of people feel strongly the complete opposite way of me. I just wish there was a way to please everyone honestly, but I know that isn't realistic.
