: I'm pretty sure it is a spear, it's just zoomed in on the blade portion. I'd look at pictures of Guan Yu for example. The one from dynasty warriors has a spear shaped exactly like this.
guan yu's weapon is not even a spear though

Drafting yordles away from Bandle into other cities/factions only cheapens Yordle Lore for the sake of not making anything interesting and unique for Bandle. I hate this idea so much.
But what if this is the direction riot is going too? What will be your reaction? Nevertheless, which faction would you want tris to be affiliated to if this happens? A new faction may do? Or Is she gonna be a wanderer without affiliations like his new lore? > While many other yordles channel their energy into discovery, invention, or just plain mischief-making, Tristana was always inspired by the adventures of great warriors. She had heard much about Runeterra, its factions, and its wars, and believed her kind could become worthy of legend too. Setting foot in the world for the first time, she took up her trusty cannon Boomer, and now leaps into battle with steadfast courage and optimism.
: Way too short and thick to be a naginata. Honestly it looks most closer to a pudao since their blades on average were thicker and shorter. But even then it still doesn’t match. I think trying to match weapon design to Riot’s art is a practice in futility. I don’t think they particularly care about weapon typology.
Which they need to reconsider because a lot of people want some clarity with these weapons too. Maybe some pips are being educated by seeing this and after it hits live, it may cause misleading info about the weapons typology.

Yay! thanks for the update though. I hope to see your beautiful map soon :)
: Bandle City is definitely one of the top most requested region/faction updates, from players worldwide. I thought it'd be cool to cover in future, so I decided to do some research, maybe take some photos... but I couldn't find any mention of how I was supposed to get there. I asked Teemo, and he shot me in the forehead with a dart. Everything got a little fuzzy after that. At least I still had my kidneys the next morning.
As I can see, bandle city as of now in my perspective is a realm were good furry spirit resides before they go and journey into the human world or another dimension/journey into a desired faction. They can never go back into that realm unless they have completed their mission in life or else dead and be reborn again in that realm. It's like their nirvana or something. Maybe in the future, Bandle will just be a faction where no one resides too but all yordles are affiliated to it. As to why, its because they came from it. I'm not even against that all yordles will be scattered across runeterra or thru other universes/planets. But they always came and will come back to this bandle realm. I also support satomi-kun's comment about it too. We could fit even more Bandle City Yordles into other factions. {{champion:42}} Piltover, it even clearly states in his new bio that he resides tehre. All he needs is a VGU. {{champion:117}} I disagree with her in ionia. Glade Dimension needs to bea thing again riot. A dimension were fairytails exist and physics a have no laws. An Illusion realm maybe. {{champion:68}} Zaun, he fits there. Maybe, Zig embodies the chetech of zaun while rumble embodies the junky tech of zaun. {{champion:18}} Bilgewater. This can be a thing cause she has no new canon lore atm. The only thing that is controversial here is her VO. which can be utterly change in the future if riot finds a better story for her. Maybe fizz embodies bildgewaters deep waters while her embodies the people side of bildge and its hostile theme. She is cocky at times so who wouldn't guess. {{champion:45}} Noxus or maybe a wanderer with a rune that corrupted him. {{champion:17}} Kumungu Jungles/ A Huge Jungle (If you don't like the name kumungu/ kumungu is even prt of this huge jungle). Even his skills are from this faction
SatomiKun (EUW)
: My opinion might seem cruel, but I honestly think there is no need to flesh out Bandle City like that. But why do I think that? Right now, the only thing that we know about Bandle City is that this is the place Yordles are coming from. It is supposed to be a mysterious place no one has seen who is still able to tell the tale anymore. And I think that this is ok.... We got most archetypes for places in Runeterra covered. Shadow Isles as the land of the undead, Piltover and Zaun as the science cities, Noxus as the conquering army and so on. Looking at the roster of Yordle champions, there are even more Yordles attached to another faction primarily than Bandle City directly. Bandle City Yordles: {{champion:42}} {{champion:117}} {{champion:68}} {{champion:17}} {{champion:18}} {{champion:45}} Non-Bandle City Yordles: {{champion:32}} {{champion:105}} {{champion:150}} {{champion:74}} {{champion:240}} {{champion:85}} {{champion:78}} {{champion:115}} And looking at these champions.... I could imagine a lore rework that makes these Bandle City Yordles move to another faction as well. Reading Corkis current lore, I am almost 100% sure that he will become a Piltover champion after his VGU. It just makes sense. We could fit even more Bandle City Yordles into other factions. {{champion:42}} Piltover {{champion:117}} Ionia (country with the most natural magic... makes sense for her) {{champion:68}} Zaun (he has a mecha made out of scrap, fitting for Zaun) {{champion:18}} Bilgewater {{champion:45}} Noxus I wouldn't be mad if they moved the champions to other factions. Bandle City stays as the mysterious place where the Yordles come from. But the trend seems to be that Yordles are living in human society, hidden with the glamour. Which is more interesting for me.
and add teemo to kumungu. Specially that his mushrooms came there i believe :)
Sukishoo (NA)
: Definitely not a Spear. I get the original icon was like just a placeholder, but even that looked more like a Spear than this one. For the IE, I don't mind the new one but I think they should have just made a completely new idea. The new icon is like just taking the style of the original and trying to reuse it.
I agree to all of this, The place holder looks and lives up to its name while the new one don't. And yes, although riot wants to preserve their iconic item icon, IE, the new one sucks. They can do better than that and I'm not even btching but critiquing them so that they can improve the game, fix their mistake and make it appeal to players.
: The blade is way too short to be a sword dude. However yes, while still a polearm, the art very clearly shows a glaive, not a spear for some stupid reason.
There are diff types of sword though or a sword type weapon like knifes,dagger,etc. Even a glaive is a sword lmao. But nevertheless to say, I get your point and riot must rename it for clarity issues.
: It took me a second but this actually makes perfect sense. Maybe there's a reason why the harrowing keeps targeting Bilgewater; maybe instead of it just being the closest what's going on in the Ruined King trying to reclaim his kingdom from the pirates and criminals who have settled there.
: I mean. It could be possible. But I find it highly unlikely.
: > The ruination of the blessed Isles to Shadow Isles is so old too, much older than the darkin and the rune wars. Wrong. The Ruination is a more recent event if you compare it to the Watcher, Shurima and the Darkin War. If you ask me, I don't think it is older than a few centuries. Before you say, "no it happend before the Darkin War", we have canon mentioned that it did happend later. > Remnants of an order that has existed far longer than Noxus itself, initiates of the Black Rose have schemed from the shadows for centuries, drawing the rich and powerful to their ranks. Though they do not often learn the origins of their matron, many have uncovered legends of a pale sorceress who aided the broken barbarian tribes, in their struggle against the infamous Iron Revenant subjugating lands already ravaged by the darkin. Even today, his name is whispered in fear: Mordekaiser. [LeBlanc Bio](https://universe.leagueoflegends.com/en_GB/story/champion/leblanc/) Darkin War happend, after it Mordekaiser come to power and reign for a few centuries. In the end someone could steal his skull, which was brought to the Blessed Isle. The Ruination happend also a good while later. > Years rolled into decades, decades to centuries, until a cataclysm was unleashed upon the Blessed Isles. A king whose mind had been ruined by grief and madness unleashed a terrible spell that condemned the isles to darkness, turning them into a twisted realm of the undying – the Shadow Isles. During that great sorcerous explosion, the vaults securing Mordekaiser’s skull were torn asunder. [Mordekaiser Bio](https://universe.leagueoflegends.com/en_GB/story/champion/mordekaiser/) Yeah, the Darkin War happened a good while before the Ruination.
You have a point there too but lets just see what would riot bring into the future.
: Interesting idea, though I don't think that's the route Riot will take with the story. Also, the Ruination is a newer development; it doesn't predate the Darkin War or the Rune Wars.

The city of Bilgewater is just one small bay in the **Blue Flame Isles**, though... there's a whole indigenous culture that has nothing to do with it, and we've only just begun to scratch the surface. :-) That's the **Serpent Isles**, silly paylangi. {{sticker:slayer-jinx-wink}} ######Just kidding!
lol you two. OFF TOPIC: Bio its been a half a year already. Are we gonna see the new maps you promised :(? The Plausible Maps to see this year might be ionia/half ionia w/ akali and the retcon freljord map w/ nunu. Or are the maps will be shown as a stand alone get up. Or maybe both :)

: It actually looks more like a Naginata.
Yep, that a good choice too if you ask me rather than a spear.
Eggbread (NA)
: That's the tip of the spear. Ex: https://i.pinimg.com/originals/ad/af/86/adaf86b8fed6b4510e748b4b7b74aeb4.png
well its a short and bulgy tip though, for clarity issues it doesn't look like a spear of a spear tip specially that its thick and the picture doesn't convey a spear. Even if the old one has age, it clearly defined its name rather than the new icon.
: I like the Rito drawing they had on the PBE. It made me laugh.
lol me too but did you see the new icon of atma's reckoning? Its so sick and i'm loving it! https://pbs.twimg.com/media/DeomqfCWAAAdekF.jpg

SatomiKun (EUW)
: Will they tease it at all? I know, he gets new visuals and so on, but he was initially planned as a GU and we didn't get a teaser for any of the former GUs.
Maybe? because he got promoted as a VGU now
: We've already got Pyke coming in next week. Aatrox/Akali, I forget who was coming first but it's typically in the order that they appeared on the latest champion road map, will probably release either next month or the month after. The other likely won't release until September/October, and Nunu, the last one on the list, won't release until December at the earliest, possibly even January if he takes that long.
Not to be mean but are you new to the boards? specially in the story,art and sound page? if so, the estimation of aatrox->akali->nunu(yes, this is the correct order) release date ranges from may-august/september.

Rioter Comments
: It's a well-placed line.
: I always liked the idea of Zyra being more primal-focused. Essentially, emphasize on the fact that she is a CREATURE seeking only to survive. I don't exactly know where Riot wants to go with Zyra right now, but I've always interpreted her old lore as her being the last of her species and seeking only to survive as a vicious collection of carnivorous plants. PLEASE OH PLEASE stray away from a Poison Ivy copy.
yes, i kept telling riot to stay away from a poison ivy copycat and I don't like her staying in valoran because jungles are so far away from that continent. Riot needs to redo that, instead of valoran, just rename it to the shuriman continent.
Zoli Ben (EUNE)
: The longer {{champion:6}} goes, the more I keep hoping its the Star Guardian meme skin especially after that legit meme killer news article. Sona recieved a chroma for Lunar Revel, hope its not just that.
Lol any urgot skin at this moment is a yes for me though and we have the same opinion as to sona.
: they already debunked the .wad skin release thing
They clearly did not debunk all of that as false. They did just told us that they should secure their files more to prevent something to be leak like the wad checker stating the wad files
GreenLore (EUW)
: Actually Cho'gath is among the Top tier candidates for a VGU,so there is a small chance that this was done because they are working on him as well https://boards.na.leagueoflegends.com/en/c/story-art/Q30wxkKg-new-roadmap-reav3-can-you-give-us-an-update-on-the-tier-1-vgu-list-you-mentioned-one-year-ago?comment=0001 Though I remember that a few months ago,one rioter talked about working on a female VGU(unrelated to the Akali one) and another one talked about a "minor" VGU,so I think that Kayle&Morgana are more likely to get the next VGU after Nunu.
Same as amumu though... And yep kayle and morgana is old news now, so nothing new..

Almighty (EUNE)
: The idea of skins skipping PBE testing is stupid for the following reasons:
I like their approach but its also kinda risky. If they would pull another one like this they need to be sure that the community will like it.
: Riven is the one I like less aswell, seems too unrefined when it comes to the weapon. I also would have preferred to have this skinline to be limited and felt somewhat special.
Agree. When ps cait was release i was bitter because this skinline should only be limited to ez because its an ulti skin. Meaning ulti skins should only be exclusive to one champion only. But i forgive riot for that because its a legendary skin and i like that skinlikne for cait. But now, instead of getting angry at the new skins, i grew tiresome to this skinline because they don't even look bad but the skin line should not be expanded anymore.
: {{champion:6}} is the only fully reworked without a new skin
: So... no champ reveal for two weeks?
Dont lose hope. Its still monday bro. Tommorow is the final judgement

: That Ionian village _officially_ recognizes her as war criminal. However, the understanding we get from the falcon nosed magistrate is that she sees Riven's shame and torment over her crimes, as well as her desire to start her life anew and make atonements for her past. That is why the magistrate "condemned" Riven to a life of hard labor in the village to atone for her war crimes in the Noxian invasion. What the magistrate did was both a sentencing of a crime and a way to allow Riven to continue to live in the village without the burden of needing to hide herself or live in exile as a war criminal and renegade. It was a brilliant move of the magistrate to give EVERYONE the justice they wanted, and allow Riven to restart her life under the protection of the village's council as a "criminal serving a punishment." Riven definitely is Ionian now, given that she outwardly rejected her Noxian roots.
SatomiKun (EUW)
: Totally agree. She will continue living in Ionia. It is even shown that she found a family in that land to take care of. It feels like she should become an officially Ionian champion with that story, just like they changed Ziggs to be a Zaunite instead of Piltovian with his comic. Which would mean the Ionian champion roster would have 19 champions then.... Hell, Riot really should take some years of a break from Ionia.
Agreed, Don't worry though, In my opinion (and my prediction/theory) soraka will leave the ionian roaster and will transfer to targon. Making the Ioninian Champs still 18. I also wish that annie's faction would be noxus though, yeah, it clearly stated that she roams into some random houses/travelers but she still never left in that **noxian woods** making her still clearly noxus and in its territory. Noxus faction just focusing on the main folks in the noxian prime will clearly lose its essence as a faction because it just focuses on the city not the whole faction and its pips.
SatomiKun (EUW)
: {{champion:6}} Born in Noxus, then send to Zaun as a **prisoner**. He escaped the prison and now continues killing chembarons to drive Zaun into insanity (well... _more_ insanity), chaos and anarchy. So he is pretty much a criminal in Zaun and I don't think you could see him as having allegiance with Zaun. He just is there to show the Zaunites his vision of strength, which he learned in Noxus. He is still listed as a Zaunite champion. ____________________ Most important for the faction a champion belongs in is not where they are born, if they care for that country in any way or stuff like that. I think it is mostly important _where their narrative takes place_. Riven is not a factor in the lands of Noxus anymore. She will live in Ionia, she takes care of these 2 elderly people calling her their daughter. All her stories from this point on will probably be in Ionia, She has actual impact in Ionia. Not Noxus. Was the same for Urgot. Noxus was his past, but his business, impact and general narrative is in Zaun, he counts as a Zaunite champion.
totally agrees with SatomiKun

this should be the case but doubt it cause we only have nunu as the name of the champ unless they'll include willump like "Nunu & Willump" in his rework.
