“Fine, if you don’t want to help me then I’ll do it myself.” The dame left the court as the aristocrat waved with a smirk. The fool didn’t realise what he was doing. She had only one ally left, one she’s been at odds with for a while. When she arrived at her house she found the mystic wearing a kimono and meditating under the Sun. “I know why you’re here and I will help you despite our differences.” “You know well enough what’s at stake, our disagreements mean nothing.” “Sadly, you are right.”

Chroma Packs, Left and Right

25th of August, 2016

Base Chroma Packs Review

Blitzcrank Steel Chroma Pack

Base chroma packs offer different colours for each champion’s classic skin. As re-colours, what matters the most is if they offer a different look to the classic one and if it is pleasing to the eye. It’s also worth considering if a skin employs colours in a way that highlights characteristics of a champion that are appealing. With all that in mind, let’s see which chroma packs are worth getting.

Skin Chroma Packs Review

Koi Nami Element Chroma Pack

Skin chroma packs provide the opportunity of customising a champion’s skin with specific colour combinations. When a chroma offers a different look, that’s visually attractive and that also enhances or plays with the skin’s features it can be worthwhile. However, that’s only provided both champion and skin are owned. With that assumption firmly in place, let’s see which chroma packs are worth getting.

PROJECT: Ashe Review

PROJECT: Ashe Splash Art

“Snow white and dim blue, the glowing neon on the streets casts its hue. The scout listens, a mission’s due; her drone follows, through the city blur.
She draws her bow, an arrow glints; virtual yet real, she’s got ready her sting. They fly and bite, they swarm the prey; slow and weary, escape is in vain.
A mission done, she isn’t gone; another comes, start recon.”

Pool Party Fiora Review

The Wandering Archmage

Ryze Champion Update Review

Ryze, the Rogue Mage Splash Art

Ryze, the Rune Mage isn’t an archetypical wizard, transformed by the arcane power he wields his skins revel in his unique idiosyncrasy. Some skins take his peculiar image to fantastic extremes while others try to root it as much as possible into the realm of the believable. The power of the runes must be contained and their call is strong, too much too resist. So, if you are desperate for the power to make Ryze look like a true arcane master, read his skins’ review.

Deep Sea Nami Review

Deep Sea Nami Splash Art

Do you dare delve deep into the waters? The seas hold many secrets and few were meant for human eyes. Go ahead, dive where light doesn’t reach and find out what seek. Know that what you find may consume you. If not in horror then whole.

Soulstealer Vayne Review

Soulstealer Vayne Splash Art

What is a soul but the pure source of life? Some are dedicated to create and nurture. Others, they don’t deserve to exist. If you decide to dance with shadows you better don’t fear what you find within. If darkness eats your soul then you’ll be hunted and become ammunition for the night.

A Disruption in Space & Miss the Queen

17th of June, 2016

Dark Star Thresh Review

Dark Star Thresh Splash Art

To absorb, to consume, to gather and collect. The voracity of the black hole knows no limit and the power of its master is just as oblivious. When matter is bent and subdued without effort be aware that Dark Star Thresh is near.

Dark Star Varus Review

Dark Star Varus Splash Art

Focus, concentrate, compress and release. Matter becomes a common resource that is extinguished for its energy and unleashed within the same vicious circle. Qualities are irrelevant, only quantity is a concern when Dark Star Varus aims at his objective, again.

Weaving Ice and Surfing

19th of May, 2016

Freljord Taliyah Review

Freljord Taliyah Splash Art

A new path but in the same direction. Freljord isn’t a bad place to be. At the beginning the cold was a problem and snow. It gets everywhere and makes you even colder. After a while it wasn’t so bad. It turns out that ice isn’t that different from rock. If you know how to weave one then you can weave the other and, of course, surf! Now if you’ll excuse me I have to take a little trip round some mountains. If you want to know more about Freljord and what I think of its culture then take a look at some of my homework.

Gothic Omens and Yeti on Their Way

6th of May, 2016

Gothic Skins’ Review

Iron Inquisitor Kayle, Cursed Revenant Nocturne and Black Scourge Singed Splash Art
The End, the Hope and the Disease

The wood complains under the weight but there’s much more for the cart to carry; many more. The plague doctor looks with glass eyes and an expressionless visage. The Lady of Iron has been crying dark tears for a good while but this plague is too much even for her divinity. Whatever is the true source it overloads graveyards to the point that bodies pile up on top of others; which makes spirits restless to wander the streets only adding more death on the cobblestones. The doctor signals the cart and it creaks as it catches a bit of speed. Nothing can be done for these poor, doomed souls but to pray for a painless end. The rest, is in the hands of our stern Lady.

Golden Flames & Chasing Prints

22nd of April, 2016

Infernal Diana Review

Infernal Diana Splash Art

Intense, focused flames brimming with life. Their fuel is a soul, fiery and blazing, that won’t let go of its destiny. The earth is carved with their passage and so are enemies. They burn until their own fire is extinguished but this soul can’t be snuffed out of its infernal coil. That is no fire that can eternal blaze but with strange aeons even time will be ablaze.

Outrageous Visuals

20th of April, 2016

Taric Champion Update Review

Taric, the Shield of Valoran

Taric, the Shield of Valoran has always been a protector. It doesn’t matter what needs protection because his knowledge of love, beauty and life allows him to appreciate how unnecessary limits and definitions are. Also, how painful failure can be. This may sound idealistic but when his sparkling charm doesn’t let him past an obstacle a blunt weapon does the job. He has become a warrior with a will tempered against the elements; polished like a fine jewel. With the celestial blessing of the Protector Taric is ready to take on storms to fulfil his duty. Of course, dressed in the most stylish, fashionable and even outrageous garments he can. An avatar must look good as a representation of a higher being and he sure knows it.

Train to Annihilation on Platform Zero & Mischief and Tibbers

15th of April, 2016

Mecha Zero Sion Review

Mecha Zero Sion Splash Art

“Do you hear it? It’s alive. This is what we’ve been waiting for, what we’ve worked so hard to achieve. Now that we have artificial sentience we have finally created life in our own image. Let it free and show us our fine reflection in the mirror of your actions. Open the gates, there’s a world awaiting you, seize it.”

The giant Mecha stared a few moments at the horizon. Blinded by the Sun it covered its face with a hand and inspected the world before him: he wasn’t interested. He turned and looked down on the minuscule creatures that thought themselves responsible for his existence. They looked back in awe at his colossal frame. “If only they knew the truth, they soon will. They will realise how wrong and foolish they had been.”

Hextech Ingenuity, Program A.I. & Void Dreams

8th of April, 2016

Hextech Annie Review

Hextech Annie Splash Art

The hextech engine glows gently with mystical power. The young engineer connects the automatic systems to the energy supply, pushes it inside the core, slides down the cover and checks the final layer of armour protecting such essential machinery. It’s time for a test. The hextech glove proves itself once again but the real show starts when it focuses the esoteric power into the summoning of the mechanical bear. Annie giggles with delight at the return of her best friend. With this technological prowess they can reach together into a new era of wonder.

A Day of Draven & Desertic Ranch

1st of April, 2016

Draven Day Skins’ Review

Meowkai, Urf Kench, Draven Draven, Definitely Not Vel'Koz Splash Art
Welcome to the League of Draven

Costumes and disguises can do little to alleaviate the impact of Draven on himself. They may try to steal the spotlight but Draven has it firmly between his teeth and they look healthy enough; like all Draven teeth do. Still, if you need a distraction from so much Draven then there’re the reviews for skins that aren’t Draven and also for the only skin that matters, Draaaven.

Burning Skies & Alien High Seas

25th of March, 2016

Ashen Lord Aurelion Sol Review

Ashen Lord Aurelion Sol Splash Art

The sky lashes with fire and marks the earth with tongues of flame. Ash gathers in thick clouds, while a firestorm lights them like an infernal heaven. Its twisted divinity reveals a golden dragon manipulating fire with its hand, creating and discarding with the ease and care of an artisan. The land cleansed below, from fallen cinders a new geography is crafted. The Ashen Lord looks at his work and satisfaction fills his visage. Blue and white returns to the sky and life returns to explore the unrecognizable terrain. A fresh set of possibilities await those that dare accept the gift of the Ashen Lord Aurelion Sol.

Chasing Spells & a Deadly Bloom

18th of March, 2016

Death Blossom Kha’Zix Review

Death Blossom Kha'Zix Splash Art

Several parties have explored these lethal forest. Explorers, adventurers, even fame-seekers and robbers, they have all held their hopes higher than their reason. It hasn’t worked for any of them. The warnings have been heard time and again but none listen. Only when it’s too late do they realise their terrible mistake. Staring with desperation at their end, neither words nor actions can change fate.
These woods aren’t meant for human eyes, the mysteries held here are to haunt us with secrecy. Every season, the vegetation transforms and interest is raised again. When will we learn that this Death Blossom can only consume us whole?

Life in a Fair Town & A Fairy Lady

11th of March, 2016

Elderwood LeBlanc Review

Elderwood LeBlanc Splash Art

A blink, a spark among the leaves,
A trick, a wish, a bit of mischief.
A bloom, a pass, some magic dust,
To fly, to soar, to reach the stars.
A night, a forest, a bit of your time,
To see, to believe, come feel alive.
