Rioter Comments
: It does contain flashback _scenes_ as typical comic readers and most league players don’t actually know who Zed is, why he fights, or even why he and Shen have beef. (The boards users’ knowledge level is much higher than the average joes—actually most league players knowledge of lore comes **only** from VO) Like the Lux comic, the Zed comic starts in the recent past, but will begin advancing the timeline around its midpoint. But even in this recent past, for the people that already know Zed, Shen, and Jhin’s lores there’s a lot of new stuff you will discover.
i have a question regarding the Lux comic. Is it canon now that J3 is dead and is J4 NOW the actually king of Demacia? Also will we be getting stories that move the country forward from this point on?

: Right now, this is still unclear. There is certainly no commonly accepted language across ALL regions of Runeterra, let alone sign language. We default to writing everything in English, even though there's probably a remarkably varied spread of languages being spoken across various stories and such. It depends on the POV of the narration, really. A TV show which handles this really well is 'Vikings'. Even though the whole production defaults to modern English (with some accents!) you can assume when the Viking characters are speaking to each other, it's meant to be in an old Nordic language. When English characters are speaking to each other, it's in one of the old English dialects... and the French guys, and so on. BUUUUUT when they try to speak to each other, the language barrier slams down HARD, and the scene is presented from the POV of whichever characters we're following at the time - some of them speak several languages, which means they can move in and out of conversations. If we're making Runeterra a more authentic and realistic place to tell stories and play games, a major thing to consider is how the people in that world communicate. I am from the UK, and I can speak a little bit of French and German... because geographically they are pretty close by. But I can't speak Italian, Spanish, Hungarian, Polish, etc etc. I am utterly clueless with Korean, Mandarin, Japanese, etc etc. Soooooo... can someone from Ionia like Sona understand whatever language they use in Demacia? Probably, because she lives there. But can she understand someone from Shurima, or Targon, or Ixtal, or even the Freljord? That's unclear. Also, can someone from modern Shurima understand the ancient languages of their homeland? All good fodder for future storytelling! :-)
okay. 1. Your wrong. Sona doesn't speak language. She "speaks" music, and 2. Music is a universal language. I do understand how a writer wouldn't get this though so no worries. Glad to help.

Actually, there was a plan to do some VO for the SR shopkeepers many years ago, but it had to be put aside. I only remember the Blue Side shopkeeper's stuff. Remember - because this didn't go live, this is NOT OFFICIAL. It may never be! Her name was Yuba. She seems like a typical, kindly, old, shopkeeper, except secretly she's a mostly retired con-woman/catburgler. She knows very well how most of the items she sells works, where she got them (legally or less-so), and she's straight to the point about how this is about gold. Her getting gold, specifically. You're unlikely to pull a fast one on Yuba.
Now i'm going to call her mount Grooby because then it sounds like Scooby Doo when you say Yuba and her mount Grooby too. This also has hints of a Wizard of Oz quote but that's another post entirely.

How much of a stigma is there for eating sea monsters in a place like bilgewater? > > Also, what's your opinion on Ionia's ff choices? After another comment pointed out instant ramen and I did some quick googling. Found out stir-fry and other modern Asian food is relatively new, more ming-dynasty and on kinda stuff, while older Asian culture was more into boiling, roasting, and stews. Stews tend to make good "community food", but it's also a very "sit down and eat for a while" kind of thing, so I'm not sure how much they qualify for this topic. I imagine that the majority of food eaten in Bilgewater is sea monster derived! You've seen the concept pieces of the Slaughter Docks showing their butchering processes, right? https://universe.leagueoflegends.com/en_US/region/bilgewater/?mv=image-gallery (Image 7, for example) https://lolstatic-a.akamaihd.net/frontpage/apps/prod/universe-map/en_US/61d0e6fadd7044bbdacb73ba6fdcc10fa1c31ef0/assets/images/bilgewater_slaughterdocks_07.jpg https://lolstatic-a.akamaihd.net/frontpage/apps/prod/universe-map/en_US/61d0e6fadd7044bbdacb73ba6fdcc10fa1c31ef0/assets/images/bilgewater_slaughterdocks_06.jpg (There are a few more on Universe and the Runeterra map) Folks native to the Serpent Isles probably have a _significantly_ more varied diet (to tie into another thread, Illaoi loves her mangoes) and the consumption of sea monster is probably more meaningful to them than your typical Bilgewater scrub. Harder to speak to Ionia, seeing as it has such a variety of living situations, biomes, resources, etc. Getting fuel might be tricky or at least, wasting it may be very looked down upon, as most fuel types we're used to seeing are wood, coal, or dried dung - and the first two of those don't seem very in harmony with the land (except for fallen wood, but cooking uses a lot of fuel). They may be more into magically cooked food, solar cooking, chemically cooked food (acids like lemon juice or vinegar), fermentation, drying, and the like. In other words, it's less clear cut than some of the other comparable locations, imo.

Doubtful, Targon taught the shurimans how to ascend. My best guess is that they wanted the Shuriman Empire to take over all of runeterra so they could have an army of ascended ready to fight the void. So I doubt they'd halt Azir's advance
Where does it say that Targon taught them how to ascend?

Ðïana (NA)
: If it had AP+ it's current stats(Could even remove 50-100 health, all of the heal regen) I would most certainly pick it up on Diana occasionally. It'd be my rush item sometimes Vs AD champs. The active would allow me to make the dives that are so often terrible ideas on early Diana(They're just so fun though), while the health/armor would help me.. Y'know.. Not die to the AD enemy. Adding AP would allow me to not only not die, but also retaliate and actually deal some damage - Opening the window for the aforementioned dive. That said, I don't think it should have AP. It honestly has very little reason to even exist these days overall. I'd rather see it as a tank item with +armor, +health, -20% Damage from towers(Only towers) and the active changed to "Forces selected tower to target the Ohmwrecker user for x seconds(or until user leaves tower range)" - Making it an item that you could use to save allies when they draw tower agro. Using the active would force the tower to target you, and you'd have that little extra defense from the tower damage reduction. Would be useful when you're playing your tank of choice(Let's say Malph.) and can't QUITE keep up with the carry in front of you(Let's say Diana) as you both chase the near dead enemy(Die, Annie!) - Your carry dives, gets the kill, eats a tower shot - You walk under the tower, use the active, and it targets you instead so that your carry can safely escape before they take the 2nd/3rd shot that would have killed them. Would also then be useful in teamfights under the enemy tower if the tank doesn't land the first hit to attract agro. Not every tank can get in there faster than their carries(And not every carry is patient.), this would allow them to over-rule the typical priority, and take the agro in the middle of the teamfight.
this probably is the best suggestion I've ever heard for this item

: qiyana is unplayable, if she doesn't get some sort of buff soon i'm gonna want a bundle refund.
I've played just about as many as you with her. Her animations are so slow compared to others. The damage can be good, especially the rock damage on low health targets, but I agree with you she needs some help. Even by building buiser items on her she still seems very squishy. Im reminded of an AD Diana all these ways in on a target if close enough but gotta walk outta danger. You can only hop so far.

: Iceboxed for now, not expecting a new dragon type this year at least.
I had to re-read this because I thought it said we were getting a new ice type dragon. i was thinking to myself: "Cool. A dragon that causes a slowing effect on melee attacks. Now that would be a drake to fight over.", but as I said i was wrong in my reading. But how would the ice drake work you ask (said no one at all). Well, it would give a 0.25/0.5/1% movement speed slow (for ranged) and a 0.5/1/1.5% movement speed slow for melee. So @Meddler...... maybe?
: Hi there! When we examine future UI and visuals updates in the game for the future, faster related system updates that we want to keep consistent with future work (such as colors) will often preempt major system updates. As a result, the preceding changes won't seem to make as much sense _yet_ since there isn't a holistic context to back it up with. SO, to give you all the full context, there is nothing wrong with purple--we are preparing purple to consistently represent **magic resist** / **penetration ** and the blue family to represent AP / magic damage, with mana being a darker blue. You can see this color logic represented in the stats panel currently on live, and with some items (Adaptive Helm, Abyssal Mask, etc) although not all things yet (we know!). In contrast, warm tones such as red and orange are saved for the physical damage / AD stats and greens for health and heal/shield. Setting this color system up ahead of time allows us to better plan for consistency with UI and tooltip work in the future. https://imgur.com/R6iYeCW The reality is that we have many important stats and text types that we want to be sure have appropriate colors tied to each one. We also want to make sure that color readability and appropriate contrasts can survive on multiple surfaces (against in-game colors, on tooltips, as icons, as text). Nothing is exactly set in stone, but we'd like players to give it time and test it out. Thanks for your patience and feedback!
wait, You guys aren't going to sell color text chromas? or have I just drop;ed a pebble into the pond with this idea?
