Lunar Revel 2017 Skins’ Review

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.

Sale Overview: Lunar Revel 2017 Bundles

Lunar Revel Bundles 2017

The Year of the Rooster is upon us and spirits from years past also return. The monkey, goat, horse, serpent, and dragon bundles make an apparition as well as the few legacy Lunar Revel skins that have been absent. The bundles discounts tend to be meagre which added to the fact that many of the skins can be purchased at regular sales means that the offers aren’t always that good. Nevertheless, it may be worth giving the bundles a look to see if there’s anything of interest. If you own some of the non-legacy skins then the bundles can be a way of getting a discount on legacy content. Just don’t expect any great savings.

Sale Overview: 01.20 – 01.23

Heartseeker Ashe, Surfer Singed, Wicked LeBlanc and Freljord Rammus plus Elise, Sejuani, Nocturne and Twisted Fate

One dressed in hearts, the other in furs, both ladies walk alongside the coast and inhale the fresh sea air. They look at the white sands and converse about the latest news and trending topics among the population. The whimsical curves of nature’s brush gave a steady rhythm of turns to the, as one of the ladies would pinpoint: “promenading of the esplanade.” “Shall we make our way back?” “Just a few more paces, I know a great spot with a unique view of the whirling sea waters.” They reached the place in a handful of steps but instead of finding the waves curling against the sand they found a large block of ice floating.

Dreadnova Gangplank Review

Dreadnova Gangplank Splash Art

“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.

Snowdown Showdown 2016 Skins’ Review

Winter Wonder Karma, Snow Day Graves and Santa Braum

Has the poro found the place? Is it cold is it ablaze?
There’s a feature to recall. Does it give any clue at all?

Tall stands, protective bash. Our poro has found his moustache!

Targeted Removal & Smouldering Emotions

13th of December, 2016

Program Camille Review

Program Camille Splash Art

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.

A Multifaceted Gem & Human Reflection

Elementalist Lux Review

Elementalist Lux Splash Art

Light, it’s the mother of all life. With her guidance wind, water and fire nurture and life blooms. Sometimes, there’s too much of them. The storm ravages the sky, ice spreads its silent mantle, magma explodes out of the inside of earth; they put an end to what light gave a beginning. It’s a sad, fact, ironic in a sense that light is responsible for both extremes but everything is linked by a thread and so is light. Wherever light freely offers her warm embrace there’s the coldness of the dark within. Now imagine if all that power were mine!

Note: purchase either Elementalist Lux or the Master Elementalist Edition Bundle until the 13th of December to receive the Elementalist Icon and the Elemental Origin Border for the loading screen.

A Tome to Bind Them All, Golden Victory & For a Slice of Cake

21st of November, 2016

RPG Skins’ Review

Sejuani Dawnchaser, Jayce Brighthammer and Bard Bard Splash Art
Karthus Lightbane Splash Art
The One Tome To Rule, To Find and Bring Them All and In Darkness Bind Them

No mountain too tall to climb, no abyss too wide to circle, no adventure too daunting to tackle. This is just a squabble in our long tale with an end we already know. Nothing resists our advance to our objective. We have seen sombre might before and we’ve triumphed over it. It never was one of us though but it makes no difference. The true self will prevail and peril will pass as before. We’ll see this through to its end and a new day will break again.

She is the will to chase the dawn and hit with the strength of a Sun. He is the brilliance of faith and the zeal to persevere with trust in a good cause. I am the charm of a sweet melody for a friend and the strength of a booming horn for a foe. He was the advice of wisdom and the resourcefulness of experience. All came to naught once that damned tome was opened. The light was drained from his eyes, the only glint that remained in them was sheer greed.

You have no idea. How can I explain the indescribable visions, the unimaginable knowledge, the pure power. They sunder the mind and claw at the flesh. It’s a need, a desperate wanting for secrets that yet lay to be discovered. They beckon with promises of unmentionable extent. How can you refuse this promise? How can anyone turn their back on a universe beyond conceivable form?

Once our dependable fountain of wisdom, he was snatched from us in an instant. He remains in there, he’s struggling still against the cursed runes in those pages of madness. We will set him free. We won’t rest until we pay his loyalty with our devotion to his freedom. We won’t stop until his flame shines bright again. He will escape the grasp of that tome, if not in body, then in soul.

Victorious Maokai Review

Victorious Maokai Splash Art

For the best, triumph needed no more than a wreath of laurels. For the modern era, gold hanging from the neck marked victory. In the digital world, a full laurel tree gilded and decked in blue is enough.

End of a Civilization & Unyielding Fires

11th of November, 2016

Worldbreaker Skins’ Review

Worldbreaker Nautilus and Trundle Splash Art
Worldbreaker Hecarim and Nasus Splash Art

From the sea they came. The waters rose and parted to reveal monstrous beings of colossal magnitude. Their power had no limit and neither did our desperation. The few survivors gazed at the coast with relief. As they drew closer they realised their mistake. With wild eyes they stared at beings of gargantuan proportions disintegrating the land with their sole presence. It was the end of civilization and there was no averting the course of fate.

Nothing Can Save Us Now & Suited for a Party in an Overload of Sales & Bundles

21st of October, 2016

Bewitching Morgana Review

Bewitching Morgana Splash Art

A step, careless, taken on the ground,
Malignant fumes surround you all around.
It’s too late, the deed is done,
Even if you don’t move you will be gone.

Stirr and pour, cook it all,
Sprinkle some death and all will fall.
The night is dark, the summon starts,
Scamper and hide, evil is his art.

Bewitching Tristana Review

Bewitching Tristana Splash Art

Nothing to see, everywhere to hide,
When you feel the sting, you will die.
Run, fight or yield, the end’s the same,
No place you find will ever be safe.

So, gather and push, more into the pot,
No small sacrifice, throw in the lot.
The wind grows cold, his figure appears,
Pray and flee, for the end is near.

Little Devil Teemo Review

Little Devil Teemo Splash Art

A gentle smile at all evil’s root,
If you see it then struggle is moot.
Don’t move, don’t look, there is no chance,
No matter where you go, doomed is all advance.

He laughs, he pokes, you chase after him,
The greastes mistake, believe you weren’t seen.
You choke, you fall, he starts to savour,
With eyes pierce and with teeth devour.

The First Star Shines Bright on Us & Four Heroes

7th of October, 2016

Star Guardian Jinx Review

Star Guardian Jinx Splash Art

“You’ve yet to understand the power and the responsibility you have accepted.”, bored impersonation. Nobody understands what really makes this job worthwhile. All the stars and sparks are nice and all but it’s the explosions they make, you have to see them. I know what I have to do and I know what it means to be a Star Guardian and blah, blah, blah. Why can’t I enjoy all the wanton destruction anyway? Now, is that the call to action? I’m ready, wait for me! I’m always ready! Shiro, Kuro, come on! We’ll get left behind! Wait! I’m going!

Star Guardian Janna Review

Star Guardian Janna Splash Art

“You will be their guide and also their guardian.” I still remember the exact words of the First Star. When I received this power I thought it would be something special, that I’ll be a heroine; we all did. It is, but not how any of us imagined. They are all gone now, reunited with the First Star but how I miss them. How I long to be with them again. Their light is not lost. The First Star and the Star Guardians need me. Our light will shine brighter than ever before. We can glow again, we only need to work together. Star Guardians, the light of the First Star shines on the world! To action!

Star Guardian Poppy Review

Star Guardian Poppy Splash Art

“Your strength is only surpassed by your determination but you still need to understand.” I clearly understand: they are a menace to the First Star and I have the hammer to smash them. I will leave nothing behind, they shall see justice. It is my duty, the purpose that was bestowed upon me. But, I wonder sometimes. Are we really ready to fight this war? Are we powerful enough? Yes, we are, we will be. The First Star shines on the world, the Star Guardians are required. For the light of the First Star, here we go!

Star Guardian Lulu Review

Star Guardian Lulu Splash Art

“We are all one, separated but whole. Spread my light on the world and protect it.” The First Star shines bright and I feel the warmth inside me. It colours everything with a bright, sweet glow and the world seems made out of a lot of small lights burning together. We are all little stars, apart but all shining together united by the song of the First Star. We have to share this wonder and let all the others shine too! The First Star signals a spot on the world. Follow the light and share the radiance with all. Star Guardians, the First Star calls us with her light!

Championship Zed Review

Championship Zed Splash Art

The World Championship is here and it doesn’t come empty handed. Champinship Zed completes the team lineup but is he more than a blue ninja? Take a look at the skin’s review and find out if there’s more than a change of colour.

Chef Skins’ Review

Chef Skins Splash Art
Culinary Champions

Food can be an acquired taste but when expert chefs assemble a menu of unique quality no patron shall leave unsatisfaied. Welcome to the restaurant, pull up a chair and enjoy a culinary experience like no other. There is no menu, everything is pre-arrenged and we can assure you that you have tasted nothing like what this magicians of the kitchen can accomplish. Bon appétit!

Yorick Visual Upgrade Review

Yorick, the Shepherd of Lost Souls

Yorick, the Shepherd of Lost Souls constantly travels the Shadow Isles, gathering tortured souls. His duty demands as much: cleanse the Blessed Isles of its corruption. To fight monsters, sometimes you have to become one. The source of his power is his burden and both are terrifying to face. His order has prepared him well for this task and no matter on which side of the veil his enemies are the mists will claim them, or his maiden. Raise yourself and take a look at his skins’ review to discover what’s behind the man with the spade.

Rebels Before Revolution

Arcade Ahri Review

Arcade Ahri Splash Art

Enter a world of pixellated fun with Arcade Ahri. Orbs of pixels fly left and right, flames crackle in chiptunes and hearts charm everyone, as always, while dashing all round the stage. There’s no moment to lose when the power of pixels is at Ahri’s hands. Are you ready for it?

Arcade Corki Review

Arcade Corki Splash Art

Invasion incoming! Package secured, missiles ready, let’s go. They’ve come from space but Arcade Corki is prepared to face them. His pixel bullets while get them all and they’re getting a special deliver of them. If it isn’t enough he always has a Big Pixel for them. The action starts now, ready for it?

Arcade Ezreal Review

Arcade Ezreal Splash Art

Use your wits and pixel tools wisely. The path is tricky but Arcade Ezreal never fails a chase for a worthy artifact. Throw your blade, release the hook and teleport to a side: the dragon is still undefeated but you have your final weapon. Release the power of the sword and triumph over the most difficult bosses. This fight’s over but there are many more to come, are you ready for them?

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.

Charge!

Sir Kled Review

Sir Kled Splash Art

“Onwards, onwards brave steed! The giants will be stopped.” With their wide arms they swing but Sir Kled charges without doubt. His noble mount is sent flying but Sir Kled doesn’t let go of the hook. He takes off into the air but before falling to the ground he mortally sounds the titan. Tales will be told about his bravery. The legend of Sir Kled only gets larger. Now he just needs to find Skaarl.

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.”

The Wandering Archmage

14th of July, 2016

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.
