Hello! Are comics reliable narrator? I mean the way Ashe found her bow is truly what happened? Or truth may differ? Also, are Swain's and Taric's quotes toward Ashe still canon? I mean Taric's > "That bow is of the stars, as is its mistress." and Swain's > "She claimed it was the Frost Queen's grave. They believed her."

Thank you. As a Tahm half-main and lore enthusiast I always knew about the fact that Tahm have enemy taunt and ally taunt to almost every champion. And it always made me sad that we never hear them. Now It will be more fun! Nice work :)

: It was Reav3's idea. {{sticker:slayer-pantheon-rainbows}} I worked on it a bit with LtRandolph. It's not mentioned in the patch notes, but not every character/faction-specific taunt was moved over. Some didn't make sense (in our opinion), or 2 out of the 3 options didn't make sense... And there were tech limitations as well. For example, we couldn't combine Tahm Kench's ally and enemy taunts without requiring everyone to download a bunch of sound files again, bloating the patch size (a big issue in some regions). So only the enemy taunts became first encounters. Basically, you're right. Two person indie project. Looking to make the most value with the least negative impact!! If anyone who happens to see this post notices anything wonky, or has suggestions for their favorite champs, please lemme know.
So.. Will Tahm ally lines be added in the future? Or he'll remain as he is?
: Visual Effect Updates: Kennen, Olaf, Wukong and Riven
On Olaf: I think Olaf's axes on his Q are too Electric. On his W electricity seems fine but, I think, should be less. Less electric would be more fitting, Maybe even more Skyrim-y glow IMO. E seems strange, I never thought about it coming from the sky, it seems strange. R looks _really_ cool. On Riven: I think E is too bright. It's suppose not to be magical shield, but rather show that she is that hardened warrior. I think it should be more translucent. Great job on all of these 4. Really nice work! Kennen look fantastic, Wu looks fantastic! And most of Olaf looks fantastic too! I really appreciate the changes :) Edit: Also W on Ken could be more zig-zaggy, more lightning-y

So.. as story progression we gonna get the things we already know? That seems strange..
The Iceborn (EUNE)
: Very good post I also caught the ,,attached" part and i just checked Mina out and that also some new gameplay right there! Purr was also very interesting, probably a hairy champion but also maybe the champion will have a cat as a pet? Witches like cats! And I think its gonna be a male yordle judging by the blue color, I would guess a pet cat would be there aswell since yordles like pets :)
Bonus points if new champion (if it is yordle) uses cat as horse in homeguard run :D
: I think another whimsical yordle champ just steps on lulu too much. Would rather want stereotype witch (since that already steps into Lulu's way kinda) as human. Puur-fect (cat familiar), spellbook we saw in teaser image, maybe cauldron and potions brewed for the allies.
To me "whimsical" sounds like the new support will be young or small. But if it's a witch and she is small or young, wouldn't it be too Zoe-like?

: Well dang, all I’m asking is for a Russian guy to call his creation something more Russian. I thought it would make a light hearted conversation. I didn’t mean to make someone write an essay on league lore.
so you want Blitzcrank renamed to something like _Elektricheskiy Robot_? I think it's highly unlikely :)

Is it the same size as on live? It looks not enough :\ Also: great work! I saw every VFX update: all of 'em was absolutely cool and almost flawless. TY! :)

It feels like a cliche idea to imagine both Demacians and Noxians playing war games for instance; surely they both enjoy non-contact sports, but there's such a wide variety of those... Oof. Drakehound racing in Noxus perhaps? If sports aren't your jam (and they're not usually mine, though I do love a good sports sim or sports management game) - what about traditional children's games? What do you imagine are their equivalents of hoop-and-stick? Hopscotch? Red Rover? Extra points if the games in such a world are sneaky ways to teach children safe habits. What might a children's game that teaches how to avoid Xer'Sai might be like? What would games in Bilgewater be like when the ever present threat of the Harrowing looms?
What about that old Shuriman game called "Xer! Sai!" ;) It's quite like "Marco! Polo!" but on a sand intead of water
: It's not "a high chance." They've confirmed she's getting a VgU alongside Kayle's VGU. They stated her W and passive were trouble areas for her otherwise well aged kit, and were going to be working on them to either change or update them.
But she's considered only VU for now; they said that they'll gladly release her VU only if they do not come up with something. That's really worrying for me, that why i posted this.

Weird, when I read this post, I could have sworn they went into detail about the duality of the sisters, and their art, etc. I guess my dyslexia must be acting up again.
The thing is that even if Morg will become darkin (which I think is highly unlikely) she still needs that gameplay-artistic element that highlights her out of other champions. That's why I propose to move her W to passive, so "a lot of scorched earth, cursed land everywhere" could be that highlight factor
Rioter Comments
: Well we do have a character who is a detective that was meant to fill a "sniper fantasy" but arguably fails to do that in game. Hint: {{champion:51}} Since her creation we have a character that actually fulfills the sniper fantasy pretty well. Hint: {{champion:202}} If cait every gets a VGU I would be all for her losing the rifle in exchange for some hextech pistols, maybe going under cover to find out who wants to murder her parents (maybe make them successful) Hint:{{champion:164}} fulfilling the too familiar "cop gone rogue" cliche but in League
I think you are absolutely right and Cait will get this detective traits with her inevitable rework. She absolutely in dire need for new visual style and her gameplay could be updated so she'll feel like sniper. And with that she must get new VO, that has these detective almost noire vibes.
: Worldbuilding: Language of Runeterra
I think the most "english" language probably is Bilgewater language. And I mean english in the way that it's mostly used. Let's see: prob the most common language due to absolutely enourmous amount of trades - check; an absolute melting pot of languages - check. I mean there are probably 2 languages in Bilgewater. One that comes more from Buhru (more native in a way) and one that was built for the centuries at trade markets, taverns and etc. I think that _new_ Bilgewater language sounds pretty much almost like Va-nox mixed with Pilties' language. Cause it's most likely to be 2 absolute main trade partners of Bilgewater. Also it'll sound nothing like Demacian language at all, cause Demacia do not trade. I'm no language enthusiast, but I feel like languages spread due to trade. That's why I think _new_ Bilgewaterian_(?)_ language is our best attempt at common language. And Bilgewater language is probably more English sound-like. Sea "empire" that absolutely trade heavy. Sound familiar ;) Va-Nox and Bilgewater are not far away linguistically and probably built on same base like Latin base in English in real life terms. And btw I always, for some reason, thought that Vastayan language is more Polish or Russian like. Due to that Witchery-feel from Xayah and Rakan login screen and the fact the pair refer to each other as Mieli and Miella; which sounds a lot like russian "Miliy" and "Milaya" which mean "Darling" with sex defined. **EDIT** Yup [a little miss at Vastayan language](https://boards.na.leagueoflegends.com/en/c/story-art/uPRhAAbl-vastayan-language). But the fact these two words sound like Russian is a bit cool! _(Maybe? Please? :D)_

: Um, there's Rafen who is MF's right hand man in Burning Tides. Lol, he's only one of what we need. Doubt he'll be a champion though. Despite his position, he doesn't feel like a proper main character (everyone is the hero of their own story, but it doesn't feel like he can run one on his own immediately)
He is absolutely not the one that we needs. I care more about Tamara, the Battlemason from Noxus, and Olgavanna the Iceborn from Ornn's lore

Arakadia (NA)

: If Malphite got reworked...
I think his passive should be that he is terrain (and he should be big) - like Talon can jump over him, Poppy could E enrmies to him and etc. But your idea is ok too, you can combine both passives.

: What I wonder: Does that mean that there are at least 2 doors like this? After all it says that he gave it a rams head just like the door at the heart of the freljord,implying that this new door came after the one that Braum uses. It would also kinda fit since the new door is seemingly always closed and can't be opened,but the one that Braum uses did let a Troll boy into the vault.
There are also may be a myth that the Troll boy were in a cave. Or maybe he climbed through the little hole near the cave that've been burried under stones then
Nixtarma (NA)
: I think they might have some power, but their social situation interests me more. To be approved for the ritual, you had to be one of the best and most honored people in the entire empire, and have passed thorough examination. To be broken by the ritual probably means that the priests made some mistake along the way, and you were not properly prepared, so that shame would be attached. Additionally, to go from hero to twisted wretch must be a horrible burden, socially and mentally.
That would make a great Champion. Looking like Arakkoa from Wow
: Amazing work! But some thoughs - there is some location I'm not happy with (I already told it Killaburn about that) aka Bandle City (it was stated not be reachable for humans - probably a part of the spirit world?) and now Icathia (I doubt it would be located in a jungle). Second thing - I think there are probably still different continents as well. The old lore mentioned they existed (Lokfar) and also we know they have Twelve seas, so Runeterra for now seems to be pretty small. [Source for my Twelves seas statment](http://universe.leagueoflegends.com/en_GB/story/champion/gangplank/) Third - as I mentioned there are Twelves seas. Wouldn't it mean Runeterra is even bigger than our world, since we only have 7? (My greography knowledge could be wrong, tho) Nevertheless, I'm impressed by your work and of course upvoted it.
Bandle City seems like some interdimensional city. Or city that are placed in other realm. That's very true that it's not supposed to be physically on a map. And about 12 seas statement. Earth has [much more then 7 seas](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Seven_Seas) so we can not safely say is Runeterra bigger or smaller then Earth. But, I think, the safe bet will be that it's the same size.

And most people were expecting it to be his title. > But we got "the Fire below the Mountain". > > Since Ornn's title mentions his elements of fire and earth (Mountain) and Anivia kinda mentions her element of ice (the **Cryo**phoenix), I expect Volibear's title to include something related to storms and/or lightning. But "The thousand-pierced bear" sounds so cool tho.
He could have a lot of titles. Like Khaleesi, for example. Witness Volibear, King of the Ursine and the Fearless Freljord Men, The Thousand-Pierced Bear, Bear of the Great Storms, Lightning's Roar, the Stormbearer, Father of the Storms and the Freljordian Wargod. Witness and Bend the knee.
: It can. But usually it just means that the god character has to grab the idiot ball and never let go to make the fight fair. Take Volibear. He can level mountains and destroy cities as a side effect of using his power. If, let's say, all the clans of the Freljord banded together to defeat him he should just destroy whatever ground they're standing on and call it a day. But he will never do that because that kills the mortal protagonists. Making him an idiot. Having some gap in power is ok. Take Lux and Garen. Lux is far more powerful than Garen, but in a theoretical confrontation Garen still has a chance to stab her. Stabbing Volibear doesn't do anything. He's already called the Thousand Pierced Bear. If weapons ever hurt him that is directly contracting what we already know. Or Xerath, go look at everything he does in his fight with Nasus. Memorize them. Now if he is ever put in a situation where any of those powers would solve it and he doesn't use them. He's an idiot. Almost all of them would kill a human instantaneously. So unless we want to cheapen Xerath by making him an idiot no human can ever fight him. Unless we do something equally cliche by giving them some anti-magic amulet or something. Which honestly shouldn't even work. Character has an anti-magic amulet that stops them from being targeted, the just level the building they're in. It's not hard. But really, more important than actual fighting is scope. Because Sol exists and thinks destroying the planet is an acceptable means of getting what he wants. Literally every other conflict in the setting no longer really matters. Next to the destruction of the world, whether or not magic will be accepted in Demacia is entirely irrelevant.
Every God has it's flaws. Look at story of Dr. Manhattan in Watchers. That's the same thing with Gods on Runterra. No matter how powerful they are, they still have flaws that can be used. Apart from Kindred. She's in fact have no flaws and You can only pray that she'll mercy you.. for a while.

Guys. Don't even start. It so hard to see it. Dawngate was really _really_ good. And had some really good charaters. In some things League could even took some things. I really loved the idea of items be like "Courage", "Wrath" and etc. The idea of items not be actual items, but "sides" of personality It was really cool and suited champions perfectly. It's always was my dream to have this in League too., I still to this point bothers me a lot - why Ryze need some magical hat, why X champion use X item when they have their own item ingame, why ADC use Infinity Edge and not "Bloodlust" for example. I mean goddamn, it's a sword and they are Ranged! Mines with workers was also pretty great idea. And some characters are pretty 10 out of 10. Renzo's personality, Support that can embody their ADC, ADC that has two arrows storred and if he strike 2 times and then does a little pause he does more DPS. Blind Otter Justice Cowboy. And _many_ more things.. Eh, Dawngate were super good game

: The Thematic of Garen's Ult
Just look at this issue that way: Garen, just like Lux have tendencies to magic. But unlike her he did't train himself to use magic, didn't have teachers. So his magic just kinda frees at the time of stress. I think his Ult is not something he uses very frequently in lore. He use it as super last-second move. Moreover, I think. he does not even realise that he uses magic. I think he just shouts Demacia and hopes for the best

Eggbread (NA)
: I personally think Volibear is going to not be as much of a "brute" as people think. I think each demigod represents the contributions to the world and Volibear was underappreciated. Ornn is the earth, Anivia is the wind, and the Seal Sister is the sea/water. Volibear is storms/rain, which many in the Freljord felt was a bad thing with blizzards and what not. They did not consider the rejuvenation to the earth Volibear brought. So, Volibear became jealous of how the other demigods got followers just by existing, so he became angry and warlike.
That's super cool idea for our lovely Bear. And it ties with mythic folklore approach that Freljordians have to demigods presumably
