Pulsefires and the Vase of Venom

Pulsefire Caitlyn Review
Through time and portals the chase goes. There’s no pause, no escape, no obstacle to her pursuit. Her words still ring in the ears of the target: “You mess with time, you mess with me.” “Empty threats don’t frighten me.” A rifle blast was the answer: how about that for empty? It was the head that would be emptied soon if the legs didn’t move fast enough. If only but fleeing was never an option.
Sooner or later, a foot would step and be caught on a trap. A net would envelop the body and the rifle would rain death. Then, it would stop, seemingly showing an opening for a frantic escape. It was just a misconception to think that she wouldn’t finish her job. The rifle would simply be adjusting for a long range shoot that would end the task. Another always appeared but there was always time for a cup of tea while the portal opened. Perhaps also time for a simple question: “Now, which hat would suit me better in this new era?”
Pulsefire Ezreal Review Updated
Higher Tech, Technically
A couple new animations, new grim and gritty textures and particles that have to be seen to be believed; not in the most positive of ways, sadly. Pulsefire Ezreal has been updated and all have been warned: things aren’t as they used to be for better or worse; the latter shouldn’t have been addressed at all but well…
Sale Overview: 05.26 – 05.29
05.26 – 05.29 Sale
The Prince entered the room and smiled to the court. His manners were renown, his taste enviable, his tact unarguable and his hold on power undisputed. He solved the trifles that were put to him as problems in scarce minutes: he always had the right answer. He showed wisdom beyond his years and it seemed irrational that he still held his place as prince and hadn’t challenged his brother, the favourite, for the throne. He had been asked, of course, to which he would answer: “I don’t need a bigger seat. The one I have is large enough.”
Sale Overview: May 2017 Bundles
Pixels, Stars and Cyborgs
May leaves us and four bundles with skins associated by role, more or less, arrive to the store. There are a couple of legacy skins among them and some rather nice options. The question is: does the quality of the skins stay up along the best of each bunch? As always, we can only take a look and see. Still, even if bundles are chock-full of great skins you may wonder, what compensates buying a set if the discount is just like in a regular sale? In that case, there isn’t much to see here; legacy apart. At any rate, let’s find out what these bundles offer.
Last Day of Star Guardian Lux, Urfrider Corki, Order of the Lotus Karma and Karate Kennen
05.23 – 05.26 Sale
Echo of Hunger & Machined
5th of May, 2017
Dark Star Orianna Review
A Swirl of the Universe
A twirl and a hop, planets orbit, stars explode. She sets the pace, she moves the bodies. The music is unheard, the rhythm is exact. The universe is at her hands, she conduces among the stars. Nothing out of place, every beat on time. If a tune goes out of tone, her correction will be prompt.
Dark Star Kha’Zix Review
The air is leaving the lungs, it’s leaving the atmosphere. The maws widen, the claws hold greedily. It devours, it consumes. Once it was diverse life, now is part of its homogeneous self. Look around, there’re more to catch. Each a priced morsel, each a step in an untold plan.

Cosmic Blade Master Yi Review
A part of space with speed and conscience? Madness, a foolish story coming from some imaginative kids. Do you try to tell me that some space-man has come here to slash us all? With what? From what you tell he doesn’t even have a sword. This sword, I found it somewhere, if he wants it he better come to get it I’m wait…

Rebel and Charmer Review
Meet the Vastaya
Xayah, the Rebel never quits and what many see as a weakness she can easily show how open to interpretations it can be. Sometimes there’s a job that requires more than sharp feathers to finish and that’s where Xayah excels. If you find a trail of glowing feathers know that’s she’s nearby and she seldom is alone.
Rakan, the Charmer isn’t known as such for no reason. Magic, love and ecstasy combine to scare, hurt and frighten as easily as he can form an irresistible smile. When you need someone to focus attention Rakan can captivate multitudes. Whenever he does so chances are he’s simply setting the scene up for his other half to seal the deal.
Together they make a team like no other, one that can take to the stars and shine with their own light. From dusk to dawn they tirelessly chase each other. Like Moon and Sun they are apart yet never separated. Appreciate their light and know that it comes at no small sacrifice.
Double IP Weekend and Icons
Welcome the Birds
Until the end of the 23rd of April get double IP from every battle. You can also get the Gift of Magic icon by gifting Xayah or Rakan with RP or IP. There’s also the Blazing Feathers icon which can be unlocked by playing two matches with Xayah along a Rakan on your team and viceversa. Both icons are available only until the 26th of April.
A Project to an End

Dreadnova Darius Review
We are all equal in war: everyone just meat to be sliced. Some are especially adept and keen on butchering their way through the battlefield. It’s not sadism, it’s the life they have been designed to lead. They embrace it and become some of the most feared fighters. Anyone would be wise to stay away from their path, but well, they aren’t an exception either.
The Fight for Ascent & Wind on the Door
7th of April, 2017
God Fist Lee Sin Review
The first time, it was mastery over all forms of combat. The second time, it was dominance over all combatants. The third time, it was prevailing against all odds. The fourth time, it’ll be a battle that no earthly words can describe. The fifth time, it’s to ascend.
Toy Box Heroes and Between Flames

Toy Box Skins’ Review
Play That Kills
Open the box of toys and save them from a fate worse than death: the drooling maw of the Pug. Have pity for these brave heroes, and the cow, they only aim to amuse you and will do stop at nothing to be by your side. Provided that a certain someone doesn’t disassemble them in bites and barks. The call to action is clear. Toys assemble!
Colossal Gargoyle, For Panda and Dragon plus Marching Bundles and Sales

Galio, the Colossus Review
Galio, the Colossus stoically watches over Demacian lands. As guardian he waits for the time when his titanic might will be needed. It’s said that he keeps the uncontainable power of mages from scarring his country; as it had in the past. However, without magic he has no means of fuelling his will. Such is the ironical fate of this extraordinary titan. In the direst of times, the Colossus will walk again and legends will be rekindled anew with more tales of Galio’s battles. For now, he stands dormant seeing decades go by. The most long-lived also tell of how magic affects his appearance. Perhaps we should go through the records and see the many faces of Galio’s past.

Dragon Sorceress Zyra Review
The lair is long and wide but there is no room: everywhere eggs lay dormant. They await the call of their Queen. The time for them to hatch and burn the land with their sulphuric breath. Can anything stand against an army of flames?
Dragon Slayer Xin Zhao Review
They were gone; we thought they were extinct. They simply hid, they were only waiting. They are here now and not many of us remain. We won’t go down without a fight. They may breath fire but no heat can’t melt our heart’s will.

A Night in Scarlet & Helped as Much as He Could
10th of February, 2017
Blood Moon Diana Review
The Moon shines with a dark hue tinting the night. Among us walks her avatar, echoing her will and tainting the land as red as the Moon. Her light reaches everywhere, there’s no escape; we are all lost under a killing moon.
Blood Moon Jhin Review
Have you seen the signs painted in red on the floor? It’s a welcome to the Blood Moon and that’s not mere ink. Better run, fast, you may not get far enough before you also become a masterpiece.
Blood Moon Talon Review
Look up, stare at this blood-soaked Moon. It’s not the Moon you are seeing now and it’s not her blood that spreads around you. The blade has reached you and you become another sacrifice to the Blood Moon.
Blood Moon Twisted Fate Review
There are many names for different hands but this night is not one for games. Gamblers know that tonight there’s more than usual at stake and that makes it all the more interesting. Just know that the Moon will send someone to collect; you will pay your debt.
Seeking Hearts & Head of the Snake
3rd of February, 2017
Heartseeker Quinn and Valor Review
From high above, the letter comes,
a heart from a dove, feelings probes.
A tresure trove, in red glows,
the swing of love, in cotton wings goes
Heartseeker Lucian Review
A Horror from Zaun
30th of January, 2017
Warwick Visual Upgrade Review
Warwick, the Uncaged Wrath of Zaun is a no longer a man or an animal. He’s something between a killer and a victim of his past seeking redemption. Voracious for the blood of criminals his mind reminds his that he wasn’t always more than a monster and the memories painful stab at the frail conscience that he regained after his transformation. No matter how much he kill, how much sinful blood he spreads, his tainted past can’t be changed. Perhaps there is some hope in future transformations, which may affect his mind more than his body. Depending on what lies at his core, some say that he can be seen as a different kind of wrath but always a beast. In all this legends and rumour there may be more to find out about Warwick’s past, present and future.

Lunar Revel 2017 Skins’ Review
Year of the Rooster
She is the Emperor’s enforcer, the fiercest hero of the Jade Kingdom. Her bloodlust in battle knows no equal and even draws admiration beyond the kingdom. It’s said that her jade gauntlets are a gift of eternal devotion from a demonic admirer.
He is the Emperor’s blade, the mightiest warrior of the Jade Kingdom. Neither armies nor mountains are a match for his jade sword. It’s said that he’s the only one with the power to lift the magical blade carved from a great cloud serpent.
He is the Emperor of the legendary Jade Kingdom. Some say his staff holds the heart of a forest spirit. Others that he can summon armies from the very soil he rules over. All agree that his power is no illusion and shouldn’t be defied.
World’s End & To Train the Best
13th of January, 2017
Dreadnova Gangplank Review
“Look! An eclipse?” The Sun dimmed and only a weak red light extended on the sky. The people looked up with wonder and questions. Nothing had been announced so, what was going on? “Did the news say anything in the morning?” “Does anyone have any information about this?” It surely couldn’t be that one of the satellite bases had gone out of orbit. The government would’ve warned people to take shelter.
The barrage of explosive beams started after the brief mark of a skull was projected on the whole face of the planet. Only from space could anyone guess what it was but anyone would’ve known what it meant. That Sun is still orbited by the remains of a lost world. Someone is supposed to be grinning but for most this is a crime that cannot be forgiven.

Targeted Removal & Smouldering Emotions
13th of December, 2016
Program Camille Review
Droid sighted, systems ready… process initiated. With a swift movement she slides across her lines towards the clock’s face; out of the droid’s spotlight’s reach. She’ll give it some few extra moments, she’s feeling magnanimous today. The droid scours the building’s surface in efficient interspersed order: a pattern she knows well. The spotlights lies on the clock and finds nothing, she’s above the machine; enough waiting. She drops from her sercure lines and falls with both legs on the back of the droid. With a quick turn of her hip her legs open a circle in the thick hide of the beast.
She dives inwards and slashes open the droid like a can of beans; it reminds her of those she used to see imported to her hometown. The droid falls in two pieces to the ground with her hovering on top. The machine crashes to pieces with the slap of the ground while she simply hangs delicately over it held by two new lines. She looks around: nothing of notice. Submerging back into the shadows, her enhanced brain is already planning the best approach for her new mission. Different target but same program.
