Eh Rhaast isn't really that worthy of going into imo. He's just not that interesting.

In all seriousness though, I want only Legendaries for certain champions. Some of my old favorite champs now with better animation rigs, HD textures, gorgeous effects, a new fantasy being fulfilled with skin lore to boot. Champs like ( {{champion:432}} {{champion:136}} {{champion:104}} {{champion:43}} {{champion:91}} {{champion:7}} {{champion:90}} {{champion:267}} ) should get Legendaries. With an Ultimate skin its not about YOUR favorite certain champion. It's about an idea. Seems short-sided to pick any champ to get an Ultimate skin if you don't have some really novel idea to justify it. In those cases just give the champ a high quality legendary. Ultimates have to be unique AF to justify the price. Otherwise we'll get anotherGGMF which was cool but lets be real, that coulda just been a legendary (or 4 variant Legendary skins a bit like Eclipse Leona) as it was just Elementalist Lux-lite

How about Leona lol I was the biggest advocate for Leona to get a base splash update above anyone else since hers is so bad and she gets a lot of play. Then Rito made the glorious Eclipse skins and I never look at it lol. She should get one too of course but I knocked her down a bit. Skarner may get VGU in like 2 years or so. Leona/Diana may get a VU/VGU around 2 or 3 years from now like Kayle and Morgana did so ok there too. But Jayce is in no need of a VGU though. It will never happen he's just gonna get gameplay reworks so they should just commit the resources and give him a base splash like they did for Xin Zhao.

: Kai and Valmar have a music video, story, comic and yet Rhaast has nothing.
Comparing apples to pears a bit? The hosts are ultimately more interesting as humans than the Darkin are individually (besides {{champion:266}} of course) They're bloodthirsty warlords that got locked up in weapons thats' really all we need to know. How many unique motivations for each individual Darkin does Riot need to make? Rhaast was Ascended he slayed some mortals, herded the rest like cattle, fought against his brethren, contributed to the near destruction society in Valoran and Shurima etc etc. They all kind of did the same thing back then. The interesting bit is how they influence their respective mortal hosts. If anything I'm more dissapointed the relationship between Kai, Valmar and Varus isn't explored in game via voicelines. Something Riot really needs to get on. As a rule going forward Darkin who directly control their hosts and destroy their consciousness will probably get the character development, while not so autonomous Darkin will be more interesting catalysts to start their mortal hosts down their own character arcs.
: It's time for a mid-2019 lore update check-in!
{{champion:54}} is coming on Wednesday {{champion:107}} and {{champion:143}} are probably going to get minor passes to integrate them into Ixtal If Rito are benevolent masters maybe {{champion:121}} will be addressed??? Since he roams the jungles as well even though he is a Void champ Probably a short story for Ixtal and Qiyanas' color story as well So should be a good update.

Rioter Comments
: Demacian language
I think its' like Star Wars. There is a "Galactic Basic" that everyone speaks and understands, but you can whip out the local language for flavor when you need to. Its' strictly done for ease of storytelling because it removes the difficult (and quite frankly unnecessary) complications that arise when addressing language barriers in stories.
: got my friend permabannede - he blocked me on every media - did I do the right thing?
If he was only a dickhead in League, but chill outside of it I would say report his ass without telling him or just stop playing with him to preserve the friendship. This dude sounds like a real grade A %%%% though so surgically removing him from your life is the best option. I would also like to ask you to look at yourself and ask what does it say about me that I allow people to belittle me like that?

Some kind of story is being written for her as was teased on the Russian LoL twitter account and then a Rioter corroborated that he or she was writing it. It's only been a month though.
: When are we going to get actual conclusive events? (Like the Void)
Right now the only payed stories are the physical Ashe and Lux comics and that Demacian novella in the works. If all the lore can be monetized and become self-sufficient (aka justifies them making more stories irregardless of the state of League of Legends) than yeah Riot will have impetus to continue League stories after the game implodes. That isn't the case right now though. The lore serves as deeper advertising for the game. To "end" the story in any kind of satisfactory way would directly effect engagement with the game after that conclusion blows over. They would lose their "hook" and that would impact their bottom line. This obviously cannot happen and the writers have acknowledged it before at that PAX panel.

They are all willing and able to cause harm on a massive scale. You can be a threat without actually intending to hurt someone... for example other countries are still a threat to the united states whether they intend to hurt us or not and they're treated as one, that's why we have a military. You can be a threat without actually having any motive to do harm to anyone... that's what a threat is, something that COULD do harm, not something that is always activley doing harm. Maybe look up the definition of threat before you try to tell me what it is... "a statement of an intention to inflict pain, injury, damage, or other hostile action on someone in retribution for something done or not done."A person or thing that can cause damage or danger," "The possibility of trouble, danger, or ruin." Ryze is a threat to runeterra because if he was to be manipulated by any of the various evil manipulators on runeterra, he could be used for major destruction. I don't understand why you think Aurelion Sol is an option for a threat if you think the Celestials aren't. Aurelion Sol would just leave runeterra if he was free. You think he would try to destroy billions of innocent lives? You think he would challenge the celestials, the same people who chained him there to the first place with ease? Not to mention you're like one of the many people who think Aurelion is actually that strong despite rioters and his lore if you actually read it showing that he's strong, but not as strong as y'all think he is. If you think Aurelion, someone who would probably only ever intend to hurt the Targonians, not the runeterra itself, is a threat, I think we can count the celestials as a threat. He understands runeterra didn't chain him, it was the Targonians who got the power from the celestials (which aurelion already doesn't like ex: his quotes towards all the Pantheons). So if you're going to call Aurelion a threat, I get to call Kayle and the celestials a threat. Especially since if Aurelion is a threat by your (whacky) definition, guess who made him into a threat... the celestials by chaining him there and making him angry. The celestials would be the root cause and therefore the root threat by your (whack) definition. A drug addict's friend could be the threat by being the enabler even though the drug addict is the one inflicting the harm themselves for example. That being said your definition is really bad and wrong, I was just saying even with your bad and wrong defintion my statement would be true.
Format your post bro. Nobody wants to read a giant block.
: Why are the aspects and celestials not on this list? They created runeterra and they could easily take it out. Do I think they would? No, but they are one of the biggest threats. Just look at how terrifying Kayle is, a half aspect that isn't even really under the guidance that the other aspects are. Kayle probably doesn't even know the full length of her powers.

It was there only as a supporting plate for the game There are always ways of moving the lore forward. Retcon some parts of it, and it would be fine. But no, previous writers took the worst idea they had. Removal of a center point of lore is unacceptable, and i don't care if new is interesting to some people. I simply refuse to conform to this stupid and lazy direction. I don't want to insult anyone who likes new world, everyone is free to love what they want, but don't act like old couldn't be expanded.
Summoners and the League of Legends were the lazy writing. It was a flimsy plot device that barely justified the existence of all the champs by saying "oh yeah the Summoners made them do it". How can you tell stories within such a confining framework. It had to go and never should have existed in the first place.
: I don't think Cho'Gath will originate or dwell in this world at all. I think it's pretty clear he's currently in the Void, waiting to tear his way into the world. Whatever lore they have in store for his eventual VGU will probably end with him finding a way to break into the plane of Runeterra. I think it would greatly weaken him as the supposed terror of terrors if they made him like Rek'Sai and be a void creature that's been haunting parts of the world for centuries.
With the Void update he kinda has to be a Voidborn like the rest of them. They are just tools made by the Watchers. Their reason for existing is to consume, and learn all the information about Runeterra necessary enough to aid for the eventual return of the Watchers. There isn't a pecking order anymore between the "eldritch god Voidborn" and the "animal Voidborn that runs on base instinct". They were all created by the watchers to serve them. They are tools created for different purposes.
: How do people/champions in Runeterra cope with PTSD (or avoid it, entirely)?
Exactly, its' all relative. Today pretty much 80% of the world believes that the world would be a better place without war and hold some kind of altruistic idealogy based around the value of all life and the will to determine your own happiness. In the Middle Ages life was cheap, anyone who was an outsider was a savage or a heathen that was deemed sub-human deserving of death, dying for your King/God/Country was considered the highest honor one could possibly attain. In Viking culture, the whole point of your life was distinguish yourself in battle so you can earn a seat with the Gods in Valhalla, anything less and you would live with shame and be ostracized by all your peers. Mental Health issues weren't treated they were ignored this "PTSD" that we classify today would just be perceived as weakness or cowardice. I guess the answer to your question is that people have collectively become more pussy lol. Of course it's a good thing we don't all need to be so hardcore anymore

: Just throwing random opinions out then. I like that the Darkin are Shuriman now. I never really cared for Runeterra’s galactic pretenses. And ultimately I think making darkin’s existence a metaphor for PTSD and the corruption of power is far, far more interesting than evil demons from space. Aatrox is at his best when he’s philosophizing and contemplative. Agonizing over his lot in life and how he has fallen. Sure it’s juvenile “woe is me” philosophizing but it works He is at his worst when he is screaming at stupid things. Unfortunately there is more screaming than there is contemplating in his quotes. I wish they would have restrained that part of him to just being when talking to Zoe and Pantheon where it feels earned. Rhaast and Kayne have never interested me. I don’t have anything to say about them. Varus, I am conflicted about. On the one hand two lovers fighting off possession is unique. And that cinematic they made for him was breathtaking. But I’m am not certain it was worth losing original Varus over as I feel that character has plenty of places to go in the lore. Sure they tried to bring aspects of that back in the backstory of the Darkin side of Varus but it is not the same and no longer the focus of the champions’s story. I really think Riot shot themselves in the foot with this one. Especially since the in game character has not changed, resulting in weird out of character dialogue and animations. It’s a pity. Because the new Varus would have made an excellent addition to the Darkin by itself.
I also like Aatrox's character immeasurable more than when he was yet another bland avatar of war. I can see people not liking Darkin being Shuriman Ascended, but people who think that old Aatrox was unique or insightful in anyway... man I don't know. I'd like to add that when he yells at his opponents it isn't for the sake of being edgy. It makes more sense when you see it as: A.) A self-defense mechanism, he is portraying himself as this big bad blood-thirsty warlord to hide from his lost nobility. Aatrox was a hero once upon a time, but his world-view has now become so warped by the fight against the Void, the Darkin Wars and his ensuing confinement that Aatrox really hams up his villainy to hide that sliver of heroism still inside in him. He truly hates what he has become and because he doesn't believe he can ever become that shining beacon again he assumes his new role in its' entirety. As a "fuck you" to those he blames for stealing his goodness. But its' almost like he's ashamed, the voice actor did a great job at inserting a little self doubt. It's like he's trying to fool himself, but can't quite. Cognitive dissonance at its finest. B.) Escapism, fighting makes him excited. Its' the only joy he still has and if even for a brief moment fighting lets him forget about his current predicament. Just a moment of bliss for him, like a dockworkers evening smoke break. I think Aatrox is Leagues only "deep" character. League has cool champs, and likeable champs, and champs that we love to hate, but no other champ deep dives into mental issues like Aatrox does. He touches on body dysmorphia, depression, self victimization, cognitive dissonance and suicide and all of this is made even profound when you consider that he's supposed to be this untouchable god like figure, but in some ways all of that human weakness that carried over into his Ascension makes him into one of the most relatable champs in League with a lot to say about mental health issues in our society today. Even his goal to destroy the world to end his own confinement is profound, it makes no logical sense and thus makes perfect sense because coming from Aatrox's point of view IT HAS TO WORK. If he doesn't believe he can destroy the world than there is no hope, no meaning to his suffering. It's not really meant to work but it gives him a reason to keep going and it becomes his anchor. I honestly think you could do a Psych thesis on him if you're going to school for it. WaarghBoBo knocked him out of the park.
: Overall what did you all think of the Darkin Lore Update?
At first I was like wtf why Rito? Alien/extradimentional Darkin were cool. Now I get why they did it and honestly .... prefer it this way. Tying them more to Runeterra makes them have a splash effect on a lot of other champs . Especially Vladimir which is one of my favorite lore updates. Should probably just leave all that Celestial stuff for Targon.

: Those same vaults that Thresh was the warden of, who became an undead wraith when the Black Mists came? That vault? Because I don't think anyone is alive on the Shadow Isles who isn't Yorick (iffy) or Maokai. Even if someone DID evade the Mists by hiding or being trapped in the vaults, Thresh would have found them and tortured them to death.
I'm thinking more of a sealed Vault with magical stasis putting the body in a coma while sustaining for the 1300 years between the Ruination and Current Day. Thresh doesn't have to torture people down in his vaults anymore, because he can roam the whole island now. The whole thing is his playground so I don't see why he would stay in the dingy Vaults where he doesn't have to hide anymore. Not only that but even if he were to enter one of the Vaults (which are sealed tightly to prevent any of The Black Mist from getting in) Then what pleasure would he gain from tormenting someone who is incapacitated. Can't beg for it to stop, show pain, they would just die blissfully in their sleep. I doubt Thresh would be very interested int hem

I actually kinda like Lord Mordekaisers mix between effects. Think the colors go well together, they really pop.

His new lore never places him there now he is a Noxus champion. Every spirit that is in the Black Mist is a slave to the mist itself, although there is a pecking order where the stronger spirits like Thresh, Hecarim and Karthus toment the weaker ones. I think it's implied that the Ruined King {{item:3153}} is the "leader" of the Shadow Isles, though we don't have much direct information about him yet. I and others suspect it's because he'll become a champion one day.
Not really, he just caused the event but nothing there would make me believe that he just caused the Ruination. He's really not that important after the fact. I'd imagine the Mist has consumed him by now or he's some nameless lesser shade wandering the isles unable to remember who he is.

This is the guy who provided us with the map before all maps. I would expect no less {{sticker:slayer-jinx-wink}}
Rioter Comments
: Who leads each nation?
Demacia: Jarvan III is the king and is the leader, because it's a feudal system his power is vested in the power of the royal houses that act as his vassals like the Crownguards: Garen and Luxs family or Fioras' family the Laurents. Jarvan IV is only the prince atm and is next in line to take the throne after his father dies. Noxus Trifarix: Swain, Darius and The Masked Lady (prolly LeBlanc) hold equal power after Swain deposed Boram Darkwill, prior Emperor of Noxus, he reformed the government so that one person couldn't have too much power. Freljord: No official "leader", as most of the the Freljord is tundra and wildlands but the biggest tribes are the Avarosans with Ashe as their leader, Sejuani as the leader of the Winters' Claw and Lissandra leading the Frostborn all in conflict to be the dominant tribe. Shurima: Azir only controls the area around the Sun Disc and the newly arisen capital of Shurima, The northern shore of Shurima is voluntarily assimiliated under the Noxus banner, everyone else in Shurima is either an independant city-state who hasn't allied either way or a nomadic tribe. Xerath is starting an empire of his own in Nerizameth Ionia, Split into several regional provinces, each with their own governors. The closest thing Ionia has to a leader in Champion terms is Karma as she is their spiritual leader. People who still resist Noxus look to Irelia as a martial leader. Shen and the Kinkou probably hold some sway when they care to intervene in mortal affairs and Zed controls his Shadow Assassins and whatever lands they hold. Bilgewater: After ousting Gangplank, Miss Fortune holds a tenous grasp on most of the gangs in Bilgewater. Shadow Isles: Mordekaiser is no longer a Shadow Isles champ in any capacity. His new lore never places him there now he is a Noxus champion. Every spirit that is in the Black Mist is a slave to the mist itself, although there is a pecking order where the stronger spirits like Thresh, Hecarim and Karthus toment the weaker ones. Ixatl: Qiyanas' parents rule over Ixaocan, which is the cardinal arcology in Ixatl. Piltover: The merchant clans and the largest families hold most of the influence here. Meaning Ferros (Camilles' family), Medarda and Giopara are probably the biggest ones Zaun: The chem-barons and their gangs control all of Zaun and have chopped it up neatly between them. Urgot is a leader of his anarchism movement (If such a movement can have a leader.) Mount Targon: The Solari, Leonas' tribe holds the most power and forces their dominant religion on the rest, the Rakkor are technically the bigger and more powerful tribe, but they have assimilated their traditions and the Solari religion and take orders from Solari priests. The Lunari are a smaller sect who are persecuted by the Solari for worshipping the moon and mostly stay in hiding. Void: The Watchers
: Just a question, but does Demacia permit incestuous love-children? I hope not.

Turning Xerath from a blue glowy man to a human would throw people off.
: The Lux/Sylas comic is SO GOOD!!
More comics in lieu of popular champion skins? We hear you loud and clear! Get these skin artist and get them working on panels ASAP
: Why can't there be a skin for a female champ when they are in heavy armor or a large coat.

: "hey we have this city-state of outright good vs. the nation of outright evil. But what if Noxus was alright, except like 2 bad baddies, and we made Demacia morally grey/questionable?" "Okay lets make every demacian as hypocritical and malicious as possible! Thats brilliant writing!!!" Do yourself a favor and just don't read Riot's lore post-2015. Its actually worse than the game balance state
: good take! but I raise u the question: would the petricite be destroyed in the process? or would it just chill out like a full sponge in a bucket of water?
Well if I was writing the stories I'd have it go supernova just to emphasize how powerful Xerath is. Gotta have that dramatic effect. Same for the other S tier mages like Syndra. As for what Riot would do, who knows?
: A Question About Petricite
Because Petricite doesn't nullify magic but absorbs it maybe a little isn't enough for Xerath. He's not some mere mage but an Ascendant being of pure arcane energy amplified by the sun. Batteries can be overcharged, and that's what petricite is. It would take a lot to drain Xerath.
