: Kayle's Helmet as she levels up
In my opinion she should only take her helmet off at her absolute final form, as her unmasking is meant to be a really big deal and it fits with the idea that she finally "Ascends" at the end.
: Lore?
"Dota Lore" "*Warcraft Lore*" {{sticker:sg-lux-2}}
: Keeping up with the constant lore retcons is giving me whiplash.
Lux and Garen bios were edited mostly due to word limit (Bios have to be around 600-700 words) and probably to compensate for their comic and Novella in the future. I highly doubt that Lux being a secret magic agent isn't canon anymore, they'd probably explore it in her future lore.
Rioter Comments
: I got quite a lot of feedback on the Kennen VFX update, and one thing kept cropping up consistently. A lot of players weren't satisfied with his new E. People thought it looked a bit static, and felt like it was fulfilling a different fantasy. I want to cover what the aim of changing it was: to add gameplay clarity. I wanted to make sure the range was clearly indicated, and I want to avoid losing Kennen's silhouette entirely. Additionally, it was too bright before, and I wanted to move it away from just pure white. With this context in mind, please let me know what you think of this update to Kennen's E. I've given him a really quick run animation in a ninja pose so that he doesn't look static, and I've shifted the shape of the VFX back to being closer to the original. Is this better than the first version? Additionally, would you want this applied to super kennen? Or would you like super kennen to keep the VFX it had in the first preview video, so that you can see his pose better? https://youtu.be/s_3Skqi5uuM

I think that Super Kennen should make it easier to see the slight movement in this updated E since his pose is a feature of the skin, but still try to retain the VFX shape to the original? Overall, amazing work! Can't wait to play Kennen after this!
: Weird Summoner Icon? Can't find it in the list.
It's a Noxian banner in the 'Jungles' near Shurima. It released when Neeko was released and you get it by playing as either Neeko, Nidalee, Zyra or Rengar, who all reside in the jungle. It also ties into the story "At the Edge of the World"

Thats been a thing for a while. The videos of his laugh you are talking about are probably pretty old
QMighty (NA)
: Morgana and Kayle are probably still a month away
Personally I feel like they could still be next PBE cycle. It's a little strange for him to mention more Morgana kit changes _now,_ but maybe he's reffering to smaller QoL changes, just a few more extra details before they ship the Twins?
: Visual Effect Updates: Kennen, Olaf, Wukong and Riven
Love all of these! My only suggestion is maybe add a sort of blurry, vibration effect to Kennen's E? It looks a little strange for this small lightning hamster to just T Pose and float slowly at you with lighting shoot out of his body. It should look more like he's constantly moving, even when idle in his E form.
: It would be nice to see Kennen get a Visual Update

Demacia has no 'secret mage organization'. This has been apparent for 2 years now.

: Swain foreshadowed Sylas.
I don't think *that's* what was foreshadowing Sylas. If anything, his quote to Galio is what more or less foreshadowed Sylas, as it hinted at Durand having secrets. "His secrets died with his sculptor."
: How massive was Jarvan I's head?
I wouldn't be surprised if the crown was sort of...bent and stretched in some forge to fit Sion's jaw.
: If you could change a champions epithet what would it be ¿
Also, Cassiopeia's title is "The Serpent's Embrace" Evelynn's title is "Agony's Embrace" Change Cassiopeia to something like, the Alluring Serpent or even just The Serpent.
Cetri (NA)
: We also have the Curator of the Sands, so that's kinda iffy... The Cardinal Patrician? The Sanguine Sublime? The Rose Rake?
Oooh lots of cool ideas. And thanks for pointing out Nasus's title, completely forgot! Cardinal Patrician sounds really interesting, or maybe the Crimson Aristocrat?
: If you could change a champions epithet what would it be ¿
Wukong's epithet should've been changed to "The Wuju Disciple" in the Vastayan lore update iirc, but that never came to fruition. Still should happen though. Other than that change Vladimir, the Crimson Reaper. We already have Kayn the Shadow Reaper and he fits the title of reaper much more thoroughly. Change Vlad to "the Crimson Curator" or something artsy with some form of the word 'red.'
: Map is Blurry
Oh thank god it's not just me. I was starting to get worried that the map was *always* this blurry, but my first through was "...this can't be right." Along with that, recently most of the splash arts for older Champions, even from at least 2 years ago, are blurry as well.
Echoing (NA)
: "I am Yrael. I am the hammers."
Tbf, I think Yrael actually decimated a lot of the ambushers. After all, the only ones left were Maalcrom and his two associates, it seemed as if the rest of them were frozen to death by the ice powers of his hammers and the fight with Grena
: Who's on your list for an Ezreal tier revamp?
{{champion:21}} {{champion:51}} (GIVE HER PANTS){{champion:22}} Jeez why are they all ADCs...?
: Thanks again for the feedback. We disabled the blurry background on the comic reader for now. We might investigate bringing it back in the future, but in a way that doesn't interfere with the reading experience. @Tesla Effect & @Larriet Totally agree it would be awesome to have easier avenues to find content related to a champion.
I personally really liked the background feature but I see why people wouldn't like it. A bit strange but I personally think a toggle would be nice, but it's such a minute feature that we might as well just go one way or the other.
: Why is it called nunu & willumb but not kled and scarl
Skaarl already has a title and some representation in Kled's passive: "Skaarl, the Cowardly Lizard" Rhaast has representation through Kayn's transformation mechanic and because his passive is titled "The Darkin Scythe" What we REALLY need is Quinn & Valor, as they literally were named that but it got removed because the old client couldn't put an & symbol in the name.
: Yes, we did indeed update the story reader recently! We've got a fix for the cutoff circles coming this week. I really appreciate the feedback on the blurred background being distracting. I agree that's a bit strong, especially on stories with a light colored background image. I will see what they think about making it more subtle. Let me know if you have any other feedback on it!

In the mean time, some of the splash arts used for the background when reading Champion bios are lower resolution than others. A bit of a nitpick, but it takes away from the beauty of the lore and art coming together in this amazing format, if the art is really pixelated and choppy... Either way, absolutely LOVE this new format!
: Certainly - the one at the top of this page :-) https://universe.leagueoflegends.com/en_US/race/darkin/ It's unlikely for now that we'd see their Ascended forms, as we aren't likely to tell stories there (then?) yet. It's also unclear whether Darkin ever stop with one fixed form, once they find hosts - it's very rarely happened in the world.

Are they humans modified by blood magic?
MeilinII (NA)
: Could Garen be related to the mageseekers that traveled with Syras?
I thought it was implied to be {{champion:8}} maybe? Bloodletting is a bit of a hint.
: So if Lux were to run into Sylas again, what would she think of him?
I like to think that they're gonna end up being the Professor Xavier and Magneto of Demacia's mages. Lux has seen plenty of good in the world and knows that Demacia can make good use out of mages who use their powers beneveolently like she does. Sylas however hates that idea and just wants to burn the whole kingdom to the ground, since he thinks Demacia will never change.
: Will the next Champion Roadmap be before or after Kayle and Morgana's rework?
After Sylas is released on live iirc, but still before the next patch that is. My guess would be in around 2 weeks, probably on the 23rd or 24th
: im sorry but where is it that he's a manipulator? Lux, if that's your example, that's one of my issues, why would Sylas care about mages if he manipulates them, there's no reason why Sylas would manipulate mages to his benefit, if the reason he's mad be because mages are treated bad? That's like PETA beating a dog to do a flip so people won't want to abuse animals anymore, if he manipulated her instead of simply actually befriending her it jsut goes ot show they made his character more malicious than reason would dictate?
It's heavily hinted that he uses this revolution as a front for his vengeance of the Demacian throne. Along with that, a Rioter specifically stated that he 'manipulates' the oppressed in a sense.

: Did Lux free Sylas? Or did she do so by accident?
Lux befriended Sylas due to what they both have in common; Magic. She never knew his true plans to break out and start an anarchistic Demacian riot. Sylas had plans to use her to break free however, unbenkowst to her. So yea, she's the reason he broke free, but she didn't *mean* to.
: Jarvan IV got turned into a tyrant.
Do you hang out with that guy who excessively ships Ahri and Wukong. You two will get along perfectly.
: I love imagining the demons as friends.
Evelynn and Tahm probably never really 'dated' imo, to me they'd probably see each other as kin or siblings. However I like the idea that they sort of hang out, aside from marking their own territories to separate each other.
: Prediction/Assumptions about next years(2019) lore events
Riot mentioned that they plan to update Freljordian bios by the time Ashe's comic comes to a conclusion. Whether or not that means ALL the bios or just a few, were not sure. However, I can confidently say that {{champion:79}} is going to get an update, a Rioter mentioned him as being some form of a Freljordian 'ronin' or 'loner' who completely diverges from the tribe system of the rest of the Freljord. My guess would be {{champion:22}} {{champion:113}} {{champion:201}} {{champion:23}} {{champion:79}} for the Freljord update. {{champion:2}} has been highly requested and noted of being in line for a VGU, possibly relating to Volibear or the Ursine somehow. {{champion:77}} is also noted to have a VGU somewhere down the line {{champion:34}} and{{champion:106}} are in a weird spot but I doubt they'd get much attention with this comic. If anything, those four would probably be best in a Lore Update of their own, as {{champion:2}} {{champion:77}} can relate heavily to spirits like {{champion:34}} and{{champion:106}}

: This, plus how Ashe's mother resembles Sejuani is gonna be important later down the line i'm sure!
i feel like Sejuani's resemblance to Ashe's mom is partially what fuels their conflict. Not in appearance, but mostly in how they act and their views.

: 2018 Lore Tournament! (Vote for your favorite stories of the year)
Frozen Hearts was really cute and a great way to show off Nunu's character and his relationship with his mom. However I feel like it was just kind of...there. Nothing really interesting happened other than Nunu's mom telling him small stories and how the Notai live and stuff. "An Explorer's Journey" however confirmed a sudden revelation that Zaun was originally a Shuriman settlement and that there is a huge catacomb of Shuriman treasures in the deepest, darkest parts of the city. The story itself was also a hell of a lot more entertaining and exciting, coupled with some nice pieces of art too! All in all, my vote is Explorer's Journey.
Rioter Comments
: Showerthought: It's going to be awkward as hell if Riot reworks a champ that shows up in the comics.
If they anyone is going to be majorly depicted in the comics, they probably won't be a direct translation from Game to Comic, allowing a very possible VU (Ashe doesn't even look the exact same in the comics either, she's wearing _pants_ for crying out loud, it's a miracle!). On the other hand, if people really feel *that* connected to a Champion who appears in a comic, Riot would probably try to keep the essence of that interpretation of the champion when they get reworked.

Necrit even got the Shapeshifters so incorrect. It was explicitly stated that Shapeshifters are just Vastaya who have more diluted blood, allowing them to shift between a 'human' appearance and their more bestial one.
: for some more diversity can we get a biracial champion
{{champion:555}} Is actually bi-racial in a sense. His father is a Serpent Isle native (think pacific islander, like Illaoi), while his mother was an outsider possibly from the Freljord.

Yea sure, it's humorous to use the male stereotype of smelly and ugly, but if anyone makes a joke about any FEMALE stereotypes it's suddenly a huge political debate. Mind you, IIRC, there is not a SINGLE CHAMPION in League who makes any sorta of comments on the female gender as Neeko does. In fact, 90% of the roster don't even have any gender-specific voicelines at all. I like Neeko and all, but some of her voicelines are really pushing it. I love that she's our first openly LGBT Champion, but some of this just makes it look slapped on. If we are actually going to keep these quotes "Because they're in a humorous manner," it'd only be fair if we get something similar on the opposite side of the spectrum; jokes about women (innocent ones please, nothing that devalues or objectify women), but even that won't go very far considering how much of a controversey that'd be.

: Unpopular opinion: Neeko’s character feels kinda offensive.
EXACTLY MY THOUGHT. I think it's cool that Neeko is lesbian. What I don't like is that it seems a little...superficial.
: I feel like Neeko is half of a LeBlanc Rework.
TBF, I think LeBlanc should be a more clone focused champion. Personally I liked her before her revert so I want something similar to that. Maybe with MORE CLONES.
