It's made clear that if rhaast takes over kayn then kayn is basically just "sleeping" or something to that effect. > > But if kayn takes over rhaast since he "expels" him from the scythe does that mean that rhaast is truly dead and never coming back? If so could kayn actually be the one who could save us from the darkin in the world? After all the darkin are bound to their weapons but if kayn can break that bond and kill the darkin that means he could stop them and finally give them death. i think the reverse should also be true. also imo the darkins should be at their strongest when they and their human host work together which rhaast actually is the only one even remotely close to that. i'd like a new darkin to be released who's like the biggest bro (or sis) with his host xD the voice acting would be a delight too :D they could go ham with the design too, i think i once saw how rhaast and aatrox are supposed to look but they currently look like bastardized versions of themselves. don't think we ever saw varus' true form though. (because apparently most if not all humans don't have the ''power'' to hold a darkin, their transformation into their true forms can never last. it will ruin the body with aatrox being an example of that) the darkin lore is the most interesting to me, because it slightly reminds me of bleach. imagine aatrox's entire lore and his personality, his views on the world could be easily by not immediatly discarding the host's conciousness i have fantasized about what would happen if jax would pick up aatrox by his handle. if i had any skill in drawing and animating i'd make fanfiction videos/what if videos
They could have gone something like this for Varus instead. Keep him as The Arrow of Retribution and have him willingly give himself up to the Darkin to avenge his fallen lover. Y'know, instead of 2 and a half Man.

: I am giving up Katarina.
Katarina SHOULD have a bad early game if the opponent doesn't make mistakes. Because if they do make mistakes, she can kill them and snowball. And a Katarina who knows what they're doing is probably the hardest assassin to lockdown in team fights (Other than Fizz) without an AoE silence or point and click hard CC. No other assassin has that much AoE damage, and no other assassin actually has a mobility reset.

: Over the last several years, Lol has not declined - it’s gotten better
I agree, the game did improve, and I don't remember the Legacy client now, but if the new one is an IMPROVEMENT, the other must have not even opened in the first place.
: X champion doesn't belong in Y lane
But Arceus forbid if ADC players want to play against other ADCs.
: I believe that is kinda the OP's point though. Why is an elementalist using a "gaint, bladed, metal ring" in the first place? Or more importantly imo, why is she not more about actually being an elementalist...?
Because they wanted to just add Tira from Soul Caliber but needed a way to use her weapon without making her look too much like Sivir and to give her particle effects. But more thematically, she probably hasn't mastered her elemental powers and can't use them extremely well. Whereas, according the homicide rates, anyone can use a knife or other similar sharp object.

: Anyone else find it odd that Qiyana is AD?
Not really. The bulk of her kit is about hitting you with a giant, bladed, metal ring.

Design is not just what a character looks like, or if they're interesting or not. A boring looking character can be the best design in the world, if it gets across the fact that this character is a boring character. Design doesn't stop at the visual level, it transfers into their character, personality, the world they live in, everything. > > In the end, 'Boring design' is subjective. Bad and good design, is objective however, because you can easily make a character look opposite to who they are. A stick figure in a cowboy hat isn't descriptive, groundbreaking or anything special, but place them in a world of stick figures, and that cowboy hat tells you just who they are; A cowboy. They've gotten the point across to you who this character is, and what his place in the world is. I said when Qiyana came out, and people were talking about her hair, that I was going to wait on what her lore was, and I was right. > > Design isn't just what people see when they look at the character. It's all the things they can pick apart and inference from the character, how much they can tell you from what they are, just by looking at them. > > In fairness though, teasers are vague, and always leave things to the imagination for the audience. While I think it's okay to be disapointed it's not what someone thought it'd be, I think we need to be wary of shouting out bad design when it's not what we want. gonna be honest, now I'm wanting a character who's whole idea is that he is just your average guy who just happens to have horrible (or really great?) luck getting in and out of trouble
: Confusing details about Lore and the world of League
I think Gods are more defined by their worshipers than their actual powers. If someone started a cult to Sol, he would be considered their God.
: Fortnite has a plot?
Not so much a plot, more just a changing world. Like when one season ends, something happens and the map gets changed as a result (Volcano erupted and destroyed Tilted Towers, which became Neo Tilted). The closest thing League has had to that was GP dying and coming back with a rework. But as an aside, Fortnite does have a story mode. No one plays it, but it's there.
: My life as a Sona Top and the reports I have received
Say nothing. Carry hard. Get Honored instead. Someone can be the most toxic Riven main you'll ever see, but if they carry, then they won't be reported in Ranked. If you don't win lane as an off-meta pick, you will be flamed and reported. Only communicate with pings (Enemy MIA, Danger, On My Way) and Ult CD. The only words to type are "Baron," "Dragon," and "gg" (Only at the end of the game)
: Are all the plotlines going anywhere?
How could they advance it? What medium could they use to advance the story in a game that has no story? They can't up and change the game every time something happens to advance the 'plot' along like Fortnite does with its world (Just using it as a comparison b/c it's also a FTP game where story takes no meaning for the most part). Summoner's Rift doesn't even exist in Runeterra any more.
: Taric counters AD assassins like Qiyana
Yes, you could choose Taric to beat AD assassins, but that still leaves you with a big dilemma ... by choosing Taric, you are now stuck PLAYING Taric. And is that really a fate you want to choose for yourself? ~~/s, but I always found Taric super boring, pre and post rework.~~
Urgash (EUW)
: How does Qiyana use the river element on ARAM or 3v3 ?
: A logical question ,How Qiyana "AD" and not "AP" When she clearly control elements ?
The blade itself is magic, but she's mostly just using it as a cutting object.
: Holy crap...... Serious QoL Karma buff?
That's not what QoL means. QoL is for a minor change that doesn't actually change anything about how the character functions (IE - making the visible area of Yuumi's Q brighter, or showing the max range a chargeable ability can go)

: If you could take one object from the world of Runeterra to have what would you take?
Murr Wurr (OCE)
: Why did Riot have to remove Graves from the bot lane?
Because he was just a worse Lucian. They INTENDED for him to be an ADC, but he just worked far better as a jungler. I'm pretty sure they intend for Vlad and Ryze to be mid laners, but they work out better in top. They went with what the players liked, and they evidently liked Graves jungle. But nothing is stopping you from going Graves ADC. I used to play Kindred ADC.

What a thrill The darkness and silence of the night
: My Suggestion for a Shaco Rework (10-year Shaco main)
Wait, your complaint is that Shaco takes a long time to "come online?" He's not supposed to come online, he started on 4G in the beginning of the game and falls to McDonald's wifi later. He's always been an early game champion. Isn't that where the "Survive to 20" thing originates?
: Olaf Is In For A Nasty Surprise
Morde's ult brings them to the Shadow Realm.
: If a champ has a 54.7% win rate with a 15.8% play rate and best on win rate of 61.6...
If I still played, I'd be complaining about her. I hate everything about her and she was always unfun to play against as someone with shorter range than Fishbones.
Sherogarth (EUNE)
: Lets face it: Mordekaiser's ult will become a balancing nightmare.
Now, how big of an area do you have to work with? And can you cleanse it? Can you escape it using a TP or something? And if you can't kill him, can't you run from him for 7 seconds? You're really going to have to learn how to kite against him now.

{{champion:4}} It's time to d-d-d-d-d-DUEL!
: "Mordekaiser is seizing the souls of the living to help him build the afterlife he was denied
: HOLY CRAP I JUST REMEMBERED KALISTA EXIST
I understand why she's been so nerfed, but I just don't understand why she has the hops. Like, that just seems out of place on a spear-throwing spirit of vengeance.
: The new morde ult will be a huge problem.
I can't wait to see him ult a Vayne and have Vayne come out the winner.
: If you think anything is gonna slam slower than reworked Aatrox inital Q or Sions Q you dont know Riots design or balance team. His current ult is the same as Yoricks old ult just a diffrence between targets and a massive up front damage load
Yorick's old ult created a ghoul of any allied champion that, if the ally died, would let them keep playing as normal for a few seconds.
: Tahm Kench in top lane is filthy
Well, he was gutted as a support, his primary role, so throw him up somewhere else.

If all they say is kys, they really need to up their toxicity game.

: guys i feel like being an ass hole someone give me a build
Go watch KiandyMundy. I like his 6 Warmogs build on LeBlanc.
: No room for casual play in League of Legends. You are forced to commit to LoL or Uninstall
That's how ALL Mobas are. There is a massive burden of knowledge, especially when first starting. It's why I want to play Smite but can't be bothered to put all the time in to learn everything.
Dyromic (EUNE)
: Summon Rift Herald should only go to your trinket slot if you have no item slots available
Disagree. You get the best tower taking tool but can't throw a ward down to ensure you won't get ambushed during the summoning channel. It seems like a fair trade.
Auccuatt (NA)
: I've been stuck at Gold IV 0 LP for over 300 games, should I just give up?
What point is there to climbing higher? Bragging rights? More stressful games? Just get the Victorious skin and go play Normals.
Rioter Comments
The Iceborn (EUNE)
: I know where Norra is.
Interesting theory. Too bad that, like every other plot thread introduced with each new champ, nothing will ever be explored or reach a conclusion.
: Nidalee Players Want Riot To Step Up And Fix The Mess Riot Created.
What they may think is that if Nidalee is good in mid, then she'd be too strong in jungle.
: Lee Sin W
Probably because it's coded as a movement ability and the shield is applied after he dashes?
: Protecting children from abusive games act.
They'd have to change Hextech boxes, but otherwise not much. Everything in League is buyable, save for a few emotes and the Gemstone skins. They could still do the Random Champion drops for level ups
: remember when spongebob and patrick went panty raiding
Didn't Angelica tell Chuckie that HE was the reason he didn't have a mother and didn't deserve one?
: What's the punishment for holding game hostage with endgame spoilers?

Clones is an offensive term. Please use the politically correct "Echo Fighters" instead.
