: kayns character splash art question
I personally think it it's hardened flesh, like Rhaast corrupted that side of Kayn so it can't be undone unless Rhaast is banished.

Exactly kind of like the new passive! Edit: Actually they should make that her color story, creating these zombies or casting some vile curses.
I'd like to see her turn to perverse magic in order to raise an army if the Frostguard and trolls aren't enough to fight off the Watchers and the Avarosans and Winters Claw

For the last part I'd love to see a dark story with Lissandra making ice zombies based off of that new passive Meddler gave her
: I don't think it will be coming before MSI, they won't risk MSI meta for big changes. Probably 9.10
Well other then the fact the designer who is working on the changes said they're shipping in 9.9, 9.8, this patch above, is the MSI patch

: Can we have Ornn's update item quotes back?
Just got Squad5 to look into this
: Riven's part in the Awaken cinematic doesn't make sense to me
KneecapPhilly confirmed Riven was captured and extradited to Noxus to serve out her sentence in the arena sometime in the future
: Who has the best dance and why?
Kayle because she does a dance from Seinfeld
: > What have you been up to? Staying busy. My role has changed, so I'm less hands-on in systems these days. It does mean I'm much busier and at my desk less .. so less time to check the boards. > Did you vote cat or dog? Dog ... always dog! > Are there any exciting things within life or Riot you can share? My dog got a new nametag made based on The Neverending Story :). He looks like Falcor so it's pretty fitting.
What would happen if Neurocat tried to ban you for voting dogs, could you unban yourself
: Lux/Garen comic for November?
That's when the collected trade should come out, Riot Ashekandi mentioned the first issue should be out next month
Urgash (EUW)
: Feedback from an ARAM Main on 9.7 experimental changes
To your second point, I asked Mort on Twitter and he said they plan on doing balance changes like every 4-6 weeks from now on
: Other versions of ARAM
I think the Bridgewaltz market would be an excellent setting for a Zaun ARAM map
: Can we get a Bard lore update?
Loping Cinder mentioned Bard has a huge secret that he'd liked for Riot to tell the story of, so I'd be interested in learning that. Apparently what Bard is actually saying, not the ootays, is crazy revealing about Runeterra
: Reav3 8 months ago mentioned working on Diana and wukong any updates so far on them?
AzuBK started some gameplay changes to Wukong but passed them onto Meddler since he had to do preseason work, they found a solid direction but the work is suspended since Meddler is out of commission due to paternal leave. No clue about Diana
Sęraph (NA)
: Should the Invictus splash arts be done by a new artist?
I don't think it needs to be redone, its still a solid splash but just need tweaks to the faces
: i really hate it when they release new lore and don't let us know
There was an issue with this week's lore patch

This is cool! (and thank goodness because it's the only good one this patch) Wait this is the 2019 Legendary skin?
: so event horizon entities can travel from universe to universe?
Yeah I believe so, thats how Dark Star Rhaast got into Odyssey

: My main issue with Ionia
The Noxian invasion was a huge paradigm shift for Ionia, so there can really only be pre and post invasion Ionia. I'd personally love to see more pre invasion Ionia and what life was like when life was chill. I don't think its possible to tell a story in Ionia, present day, without some influence from the Noxian invasion even tho it was like maybe a decade ago(?), not sure on exact timing, because the invasion had very serious repercussions, kudos to Riot for showing the weight of the invasion. I agree there are some characters that can evolve without much Noxian influence but they'd probably have to pretty secluded from the rest of the continent

Hey meddler can I ask for your opinion on emergent playstyles like the return of Hecarim top or the bortk MF build
: IKR? Unfortunately, like Oleandervine pointed out, that might be a bit clashing with Camilles whole hitman theme..... But I will keep hoping! {{sticker:slayer-pantheon-thumbs}} Don't know if an organisation would really call themselves Villainous, tho, and they initially used more Chemtech than Hextech.
True I just came up with it because I couldn't find any good V words immediately
: I want to know more about H.I.V.E.
I think HIVE would be pretty cool as like the Chem Barons' hitman team and silencing anyone who tries reforming Zaun. An acronym I thought off my head could be Hextech Infiltration Villainous Exterminators

So what do you want a writer who only writes the lore to do about in game issues?
Falrein (EUW)
: If you could meet your favourite champions once...
Not necessarily my favorite but I'd tell Morgana to shackle and bind Kayle down for all eternity because thats how long I think it'd take for them to work out their issues
d00mface (EUW)
: If Varus got a VGU...
I think progression would be the best choice of action for Varus. It could also help justify any visual changes and Varus corrupts Val and Kaimar's body even more
: there is also a supposed leak on the jhinmain page that ties in with this and gives away a lot of [other skins](https://www.reddit.com/r/JhinMains/comments/b4xsr5/new_skins_leaked/)
That one's pretty bogus since they didn't even include both IG's top laner's skins
: 1) Yes it is the helmet of the Warmother for the Winter's Claw. It was previously her mother's. 2) Now_ that_ is a story! ( Oh boy, is Sejuani a badass!) But.... Sorry. No spoilers.
Does she have 2 true ice weapons? Her flail and her ice bola from ult. I remember you writing in issue 1 it's incredibly difficult to wield even 1 for an Iceborn let alone two like Grena
: Indeed they are! We've not added skinlines or set adjustments for the last two patches because it would mess with the loot system, but starting this patch you'll see the elves line. We've decided to call it **Albion**. It's also separate from everything else at the moment, so it's a self-contained setting.
Sherwood Ashe is also part of this line right, even though its a bit of an outdated skin
: Ashe: Warmother. Issue 4 Available now! (in special addition or free!)
Oh yeah is Sejuani's helmet Kalkia's, because I noticed the similar design except the torn horn, also how did Sejuani get her own true ice weapon
: Ight, Time to get Downvoted :)
Good for you, I personally like goofy skins too
: Ashe: Warmother. Issue 4 Available now! (in special addition or free!)
Really glad we got to see where the animosity between Ashe and Sejuani started. Were there really no survivors from ashe's original tribe like Helnr

Hey Meddler can you share some of the thinking behind the Domination rune changes
: Yeah Kindred cares about death and It hates undeath because that is an abomination to the cycle of life and death — it breaks the rules— so it is an enemy of naga and kindred. Thus I would agree naga cares about “all life” and is somehow fueled by it. BUT this also assumes each life includes an end. (The possible reincarrnation and after-life of a soul is seperate though related issue). Now Illaoi’s faith assumes all “life” serves some unknowable plan — thus we all are instruments of nagakabouros moving the universe towards some greater destiny. Thus a worthy, righteous, and just life to her is one that embraces life itself. Accepting and pursuing all of its messy mixture of ambitions, loves, feelings, and chaos. Now, is she and her faith correct about what Nagkabouros wants? who knows? That is where faith is required.
Hey Odin could you give a congrats from me to Matt for his recent promotion to Lead Narrative Writer

: Can Kayle get a helmet mode toggle like Kai'sa?
I really think it'd be great addition but Riot said they won't add one
: Kayle's new voice lines are awefully dark..
Yeah the new direction Carnival Knights took with her is a bit intense to say the least and is a bit of a 180 from her previous personality. I think the pyscho robo cop VO would have fit Riot more then Aether Wing
: Blitzcrank Changes Heading to PBE
Very good changes Dan, his static field RNG was super outdated
: He would crush his puny hand as he devours his soul
What if he picked his nose
: I really really want to see a watcher get released.
If one does it should be required to have the quote, who watches the watchers
: Swain's writer here. The arm itself is made of pure demonic magic, the same thing he shoots with his Q. It's held together by Swain's force of will and concentration. If you look closely, you'll see there's some opacity to it; it's not solid or grown. The demonic magic, as a whole, holds Swain together, and helps him overcome the grievous wounds he suffered in Ionia. He has a leg brace and still carries a cane (i.e., has one on hand, just in case), because even a bad ass like Swain knows he can't concentrate 100% of the time. He is the type of man to prepare for contingencies. The demon is a demon of secrets. It's why Swain hears whispers when he collects souls, and why he's haunted by visions of a dark future. Saying anything more is kind of against demon of secrets policy. {{sticker:slayer-jinx-wink}} (Sleight edit for clarity above.)
What would happen if Swain tried to arm wrestle Darius with the demon hand
