Ashe, the Frost Archer
Ashe, the Frost Archer

Ashe, the Frost Archer is one of the classic original champions; this means that her skin roster is quite varied while at the same time represents the several stages of past skin development. There are simple re-colours, major re-models and full re-models to choose from. Her skins are not only varied in the amount of work they have but also in concepts. The visual upgrade brought many aesthetic changes to Ashe, though some things changes other stayed the same. If you want to know more to better choose how to outfit League of Legends’ prime archer, check this skin review.

Freljord Ashe
Freljord Ashe Splash Art Freljord Ashe Model
Category: Regular
Price: 520 RP
Concept: Ashe dressed in white clothes with blonde hair.
Model: New textures for Ashe’s clothes, hair, bow, quiver and arrows.
Particles: New white particles for Frost Shot, Volley and Enchanted Crystal Arrow.
Animations: No new animations.
Sounds: No new sounds.
Splash Art: Freljord Ashe’s splash art is quite good but leaves the feeling that with the great technique used more could’ve been achieved. The background offers a great panoramic view of the Freljordian landscape. However, it’s mostly empty and the few trees that are visible a little more than a stroke of the brush. Ashe looks great, shooting an arrow, but without context it ends up being just a pose. Nevertheless, the delicate delineation of her dress, the well placed reflections and the flying of her locks make for an outstanding portrayal. Freljord Ashe is a good piece but it leaves the feeling that it can be excellent but, sadly, isn’t.

Conclusion: The splash art is much more impressive than the skin itself. That’s not to say that Freljord Ashe looks bad, because the new colours suit her rather well. However, while Freljord Ashe’s colours make it visually stand apart from Classic Ashe, there isn’t anything else. Except for inconsistencies, as her in-game quiver is coloured in Classic’s brown while it’s depicted white in the splash art. Therefore, Freljord Ashe may only appeal to those that want to see Ashe blonde and dressed in pristine snow white. Overall, it’s just a re-texture, a good and simple one; recommended for dedicated Ashe fans.

Sherwood Forest Ashe
Sherwood Forest Ashe Splash Art Sherwood Forest Ashe Model
Category: Regular
Price: 520 RP
Concept: Ashe dressed in green with brown boots and a wood bow.
Model: New textures for Ashe’s clothes, bow, quiver and arrows.
Particles: New light green particles for Frost Shot, Volley and Enchanted Crystal Arrow.
Animations: No new animations.
Sounds: No new sounds.
Splash Art: The splash art does much more than clearly represent Ashe’s three-dimensional look. This piece shows Ashe in action, offering a dynamic setting, a dramatic pose and all of it at a believable level. The background is as relevant in the piece as is Ashe. The excellent lighting, the abundance of tones and the reflections bring the woods to life. Ashe portrayal is awesome, not only does she shine with the sunlight but her clothes show different kinds of folds, reflections and textures according to the material. Sherwood Forest Ashe is a great piece with a quality few others can equal; definitely one of League of Legends’ best.

Conclusion: This skin is an alternate colour scheme for Ashe and nothing else. While differences with Classic Ashe do exist they aren’t very pronounced. If you want more green and brown on Ashe it delivers; but that’s all. Sherwood Forest Ashe is just a simple re-texture and better suited for dedicated Ashe fans.

Woad Ashe
Woad Ashe Splash Art Woad Ashe Model
Category: Regular
Price: 520 RP
Concept: Ashe resembling a Pict archer.
Model: New model for Ashe, and her bow. New textures for her quiver and arrows.
Particles: New light green particles for Frost Shot, Volley and Enchanted Crystal Arrow.
Animations: No new animations.
Sounds: No new sounds.
Splash Art: Woad Ashe is piece that looks simple at a glance but that has lot in display. The background is well displayed even showing the texture of the tree’s bark. The sunlight reaches Ashe through the trees and makes her quiver and hair glow. Ashe is very nicely portrayed, from the complex arrangement of her locks to the seams of her trousers. Special mention deserves the inclined angle at which the piece is painted which provides a peculiar perspective of the scene. Woad Ashe may appear simple but it’s a splash art with a lot of detail and stands proudly among League of Legends’ best.
Rating: Star clip art used in skin reviews at StrategyZeroStar clip art used in skin reviews at StrategyZeroStar clip art used in skin reviews at StrategyZeroStar clip art used in skin reviews at StrategyZeroStar clip art used in skin reviews at StrategyZero
Conclusion: Woad Ashe is almost a full re-model of Ashe but what really makes it interesting is how different it makes her look. Not only does the new style fit her but it is also well done. The complexity of her clothes and equipment work in tandem with the tattooed skin to provide a distinctly unique and appealing Celtic archer appearance. On top of that, the light green particles round up the colour theme. For this price, there’s absolutely no reason for any Ashe fan to skip Woad Ashe. If you aren’t a fan but want a cheap and nice skin for Ashe, Woad Ashe is the one for you.

Queen Ashe
Queen Ashe Splash Art Queen Ashe Model
Category: Regular
Price: 975 RP
Concept: Ashe wears a queen’s dress and crown while wielding an engraved bow.
Model: New model for Ashe and her bow. New texture for her quiver and arrows.
Particles: New white particles for Frost Shot, Volley and Enchanted Crystal Arrow.
Animations: No new animations.
Sounds: No new sounds.
Splash Art: Queen Ashe is a magnificent depiction of Ashe where she eclipses all other parts of the piece; which is both a good and a bad thing. On the one hand, the background is rather good: an ice fortress with surrounding mountains. On the other hand, there’s a clear difference in quality between background and foreground. Furthermore, the background is effective but definitely simpler that Ashe. She looks amazing thanks to awesome shading and excellent use of reflections. Moreover, while she does pose it shows a natural stance for her which is greatly improved by the flowing hair and dress. All things considered, Queen Ashe provides an incredibly good portrayal of Ashe but a frame that leaves a little to be desired.
Rating: Star clip art used in skin reviews at StrategyZeroStar clip art used in skin reviews at StrategyZeroStar clip art used in skin reviews at StrategyZeroStar clip art used in skin reviews at StrategyZeroStar clip art used in skin reviews at StrategyZero
Conclusion: Queen Ashe is an elegant skin that marries a good concept with a good execution. A dress can be considered impractical for an archer but there’s no doubt that Ashe looks delightful in it. The new model is very elaborate and has nice detailed textures that show folds and embroidery. Moreover, as Ashe walks the dress clearly shows her steps and trails behind her; which adds a sense of elegance to her movement. From the engraved bow to the lavishly decorated dress, Queen Ashe is a very good looking skin that clearly elevates Ashe’s look; the white particles are just icing on the cake. Few champions can look majestic, Queen Ashe is one of them.

Amethyst Ashe

Category: Regular
Price: 975 RP
Concept: Ashe puts on an amethyst engraved armour and wields a complex reflex bow to shoot arrows with gem tips.
Model: New model for Ashe, her bow and arrows.
Particles: New light purple particles for Frost Shot, Volley and Enchanted Crystal Arrow.
Animations: No new animations.
Sounds: No new sounds.
Splash Art: This piece is a very nice representation of Ashe that suffers from a few inconsistencies. To start with, the gem background is detailed without taking relevance from Ashe. Her amethyst armour is nicely drawn with good use of lighting to reinforce the gem’s dim glow. The arrows new design isn’t portrayed well but the bow is well depicted even though the perspective makes it look a little small. All things considered, a good piece that could’ve been much better.
Rating: Star clip art used in skin reviews at StrategyZeroStar clip art used in skin reviews at StrategyZeroStar clip art used in skin reviews at StrategyZeroStar clip art used in skin reviews at StrategyZeroStar clip art used in skin reviews at StrategyZero
Conclusion: Amethyst Ashe is quite a change for Ashe: short hair, body armour, reflex bow, small quiver and gem-tipped arrows. This skin changes everything and, fortunately, the changes are also pleasing to look at. Ashe’s amethyst based look puts the gems at the forefront without overloading the design. Moreover, the new particles provide a nice finishing touch to the amethyst theme. The balance between looks and realism may be subjective but the conclusion is that Amethyst Ashe is a great skin for Ashe players.

Heartseeker Ashe
Heartseeker Ashe Splash Art Heartseeker Ashe Model
Category: Regular
Price: 975 RP
Concept: Ashe dressed in Cupid-styled clothes for Valentine’s Day.
Model: New model for Ashe, her bow and arrows.
Particles: New particles for her abilities and auto-attack.
Animations: New recall animation.
Sounds: New tinkling sounds for Frost Shot’s auto-attacks, Volley and Enchanted Crystal Arrow.
Splash Art: A garden of diffuse heart-shaped bushes with an emerging heart-based throne seems like a fitting setting for a Queen of Hearts. The background doesn’t reveal much more than that, sans a heart-smitten barbarian enchanted by an enticing lady, but it suffices. The centre of the piece is Ashe and with due reason: she looks suitably lovely with a good balance between appeal and playfulness. The superb shading goes a long way in depicting every texture as unique and the result is certainly eye-catching. Nonetheless, the colours feel a bit too saturated, though it works for the better, but the bow appears a touch dull in comparison; despite the meticulous design. All in all, even if the background lacks some force Ashe’s portrayal is one of the best in the whole of League of Legends and makes this a very attractive piece.
Rating: Star clip art used in skin reviews at StrategyZeroStar clip art used in skin reviews at StrategyZeroStar clip art used in skin reviews at StrategyZeroStar clip art used in skin reviews at StrategyZero
Conclusion: As a Valentine’s skin the theme behind Heartseeker Ashe is clear and eloquent. However, what appears in the game pales in comparison to the great presentation laid by the splash art. The vivid and detailed portrayal makes promises about Ashe’s look that the three-dimensional model simply can’t fulfil. Even at a distance it’s plain to see: high heels, metallic bow, hair curls, lively textures and bright colours are all absent. Instead we find a duller, simpler aspect that clumsily resembles her charming depiction. Having accepted that, what we are left is a whimsically dressed Ashe that struggles to be appealing. At a glance it carries the elaborate design of Amethyst Ashe but without the elegance and class. Instead, it resorts to playful grace that approximates a warrior Queen of Hearts. The new particles, sounds and recall further the theme but can only do so much to salvage it. The result is a skin that disappoints initially but that offers a lot of additions to compensate. Heartseeker Ashe isn’t a bad skin and if you like an infusion of hearts it will deliver. Sadly, it also walks in its splash art’s shadow.

Conclusion

Ashe’s skins represent the several stages of skin development in League of Legends’ and their quality is directly tied to them; at least in this case. Earlier skin changes like Freljord Ashe and Sherwood Forest Ashe are simple and may interest only dedicated fans.

Woad Ashe is a nice compromise between cost and detail while Queen Ashe provides a nice and well executed concept. Amethyst Ashe offers quite a sophisticated design but the icing on the cake is, suitably, Heartseeker Ashe with its profusion of hearts.

Thus, the recommendation follows a similar trend: if you want detailed and sharp looks for Ashe, there’s nothing better than Amethyst Ashe. Heartseeker Ashe instead emphasises her particles as her aspect is simpler and more fanciful.

Queen Ashe is a nice and elegant alternative though its concept isn’t as radical; in comparison to other skins. Woad Ashe is also recommended as it offers a very distinct and nice look for Ashe at an affordable price.

  1. Amethyst should be 5 stars. It’s an amazing skin.

  2. According to the soon-to-be release Darius patch, this review would need a rework also… Maybe.

    • Definitely maybe? New Ashe, new review; choices: to update or not to update…

      • I would say “update”… But that is entirely your choice, obviously.

        If you want a look at the skins before release in action, here they are: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Rk6tXILYrWQ

        Amethyst Ashe appears to include some particle changes.

        • More than an update it’s a new review that we’ll gladly do. Of course the idea of throwing away a full article isn’t exactly appealing.

          Indeed, Amethyst Ashe is receiving new purple particles due to fan demand. Unfortunately, I don’t think that the idea of making Enchanted Crystal Arrow freeze enemies got enough fan support.

          • That would have been amazing, but at least Ashe got improvements rather than… you know… nothing at all. (like Soraka)

            I’ll be waiting for that new review for Ashe. Keep it up!

        • Here it is. Hope you enjoy it!

          While Enchanted Crystal Arrow doesn’t freeze enemies at least it looks quite pretty now. The changes to Frost Shot and Volley are also nice.

  3. I particularly like Queen Ashe, mainly because her walking animation doesn’t look like a washing machine just spinning left and right, (like with Divine Soraka).

    While many people say that her default skin is the best out of the lot, i really enjoy Queen Ashe personally.

    Woaf ashe looks awesome too, it’s a nice detail that her arrows in normal auto-attack look like wooden arrows.

    • The skins’ re-textured arrows are very nice, though in the actual auto-attack they all look the same. Still it’s a nice touch.

      Queen Ashe is a skin that stands apart because of the dress: it completely changes the way Ashe looks. While now Divine Soraka may not compare to Queen Ashe both skins are quite special because of this.

      On the topic of Woad Ashe, it was good and now it’s even better. Now she looks more aboriginal and less like a dark elf which helps the overall style of the game be unique. It’s certainly a very well thought and executed skin.

      • Divine Soraka does not compare to Queen Ashe “for now” at least, since apparently Riot is remodeling Soraka now. They even said they might release a new skin for Soraka and everything, i do hope that’s true.

        Back on-topic: Woad Ashe reminds me to Sivir but with bow and arrow, which is awesome. And i agree, Woad Ashe is a well executed skin all things considered.

        • Indeed, Morello confirmed that the Soraka visual upgrade would include a new skin as well.

          We agree that both Woad Ashe and Huntress Sivir share a distinct and well executed aboriginal theme.

          • Too bad that Huntress Sivir is somewhat hard to get. Hard in a sense that the pack it comes with it is not really impressive.

          • The Gamer’s Choice pack, as the other bundles, are worth purchasing only for new players. The more champions unlocked the less benefit they provide.
            Therefore, we agree that seasoned players won’t find them very appealing.

  4. I really appreciate this post. I¡¦ve been looking all over for this!
    Thank goodness I found it on Bing. You’ve made my day! Thx again

  5. ‘woad ashe resembles a tattooed aboriginal archer’

    … that’s not what a woad is! a woad is scottish!

    • We agree with that, woad is used for the Scottish Picts. Still, the look of the skin resembles a tattooed aboriginal or native; which, in a way, is what the Picts were.

  6. The particles are actually different colors for all of these skins now. Sherwood and Woad are green and Freljord and Queen are white.

    • We’ll have to check that then, thanks for the information.

      • Are the particles the same on the “white” vs “green” line of skins (Freljord & Queen vs Woad & Sherwood)? Or are there actually differences between, say, Woad and Sherwood?

        • They seem to be the same. After the visual upgrade the particles were kept the same for all skins available at the time; the only thing that changed was the colour. You could consider it a re-colour of particles. Therefore, Freljord and Queen are white while Woad and Sherwood are green.

  7. Does her ultimate have any changes in her other skins except in the Amethyst one. If so please tell me cuz I dont see them. Might be from my graphics.

    • Yes, her ultimate, Enchanted Crystal Arrow, gets a faint colour change just like Frost Shot and Volley. The colour of the new particles is white with a soft colour hue; except when it’s just white. The difference is definitely subtle but it’s there.

  8. I apologise for writing here about other champ than Ashe but my all time fav Sejuani has no skins review yet and i agree because her skins are quite dissapointing. I do really want to buy one of them. Can you reccomend me which and explain why and are there any changes in her spells in any of the skins Sej has?

    • No problem, as distant relatives Ashe shouldn’t mind.

      The reason we haven’t reviewed Sejuani isn’t due to the quality of the skins but rather due to requests and seasonal events.

      Sabretusk Sejuani has a distinct tribal style while Darkrider Sejuani has a darker and more serious look. As far as we know neither of her release skins alter the look of her abilities. Therefore, the ice powers work better with Darkrider’s theme rather than Sabretusk; though the former looks a bit monochromatic.

      Regardless, both skins look reasonably good and you should consider how much you like the concepts and the executions. As more skins will eventually come be sure that you like the skin enough to use it even after new releases.

      Feel free to ask any further questions you may have.

  9. First off, I want to thank you for these very good skin reviews, I always read them before any skin purchase I make!

    However, I couldn’t help but notice a small mistake about Woad Ashe. ‘Ashe resembles a tattoed aboriginal archer.’ This is definitely not true. Woad is a reference to the typical blue dye (based on the woad plant), used for tattoos by Celtic tribes in ancient times. Celtic warriors wore these tattoos to intimidate foes in battle. Woad Ashe looks in my opinion very similar to the depiction of Guinevere (Keira Knightley) as a Celtic archer in the movie King Arthur (2004). Here you can see picture: http://fr.web.img6.acsta.net/r_640_600/b_1_d6d6d6/medias/nmedia/18/35/25/49/18381623.jpg

    A little remark, but I felt the need to point this out. :)

    • Woops I see that someone already made a remark about this. While I understand you see ‘aboriginal’ more like ‘native’, I think Woad Ashe’s esthetics have very little in common with Aboriginal esthetics: dark skin with white or light colored tattoos vs Ashes pale skin and blue tattoos, very different clothing etc…

      • Not at all, glad that you find the reviews useful.

        Truth be told Woad Ashe has a clear Pict archer look that should be explicitly noted instead of using more general terminology. We agree that the review should expose it as clearly as possible and so we have updated it.

        Thanks for the notice.

  10. i really love your reviews but may I ask how come you havent been posting many reviews lately, thanks in advance

    • Glad that you like them.

      That’s because all champions’ skins have already been reviewed. Thus, until new skins are released there isn’t much else we can review. We are still planning other types of content for the site but as far as skins go, there doesn’t seem to be anything left to review; sans the classic ones.

      If you have anything in mind we’d be grateful for your suggestions.

  11. May I ask why Sherwood Forest Ashe is lower rated than Freljord Ashe even though they are both just basic re-textures with low prices and the Sherwood Forest is given a better Splash-Art review?

    • Certainly, that’s because Sherwood Forest Ashe looks too similar to Classic Ashe, the colours aren’t very different. At least Freljord Ashe provides a distinct white that makes it stand out. The splash art is a nice bonus but in-game it isn’t very relevant and the model is the focus of attention. That’s why we put more emphasis on it than the splash art.

  12. Great article! That is the type of information that should be
    shared around the web. Shame on the seek engines for no longer positioning this submit upper!
    Come on over and seek advice from my website . Thank you
    =)

  13. IN amethyst ashe her third is light purple right.? i see it cuz i have it xD .her hawk eye.!

    • We didn’t notice any changes but as the particles’ colours are so subtle it’s not something to simply rule out. As far as we know only Hawkshot keeps the same particles across her skins while the other abilities get a subtle tint.

  14. heartseeker ashe pleaseeee :D

  15. Hi Zero,

    Thank you for the timely review on HeartSeeker Ashe. It seems like a nice skin and your review is on the mark but it seems odd and a bit sad that they would add a 4 star rated Zero skin to a library that already has 5 star Zero rated skins such as Woad, Amethyst, and Queen. Riot already has 2 quality regular 975 rp skins and Woad and Sherwood arent bad and Freljord has occasional appeal. With 5 fairly nice skins did Ashe really need a 6th?

    Honestly, I might have docked them a star just because I feel that Ashes new skin is not an addition to her library. There are already really good Ashe skins that I dont own and am waiting for a sale to own. And if I was going to spend 975 rp Id get one that you have rated higher.

    From here on out, you cant really do much with Ashe except go legendary or Ultimate. Shes got 975 price point and under skins covered.

    Meanwhile, Rengar has been holding at one skin forever and could use a Heartseeker skin. And I suppose that women are more attractive and sell more skins so they get more made for them but even so, Karma only has 2 skins that you can buy assuming traditional never hits a store again. And her 2 skins arent “special” and she would look good in Red.

    Its a good skin, dont get me wrong. But I dont get it. Ashe already has plenty of skins and some of the best skins in the game especially at the price point where Heartseeker enters. Shes a fairly popular champion but not a hugely popular champion.

    There are probably a hundred champions that had greater need of an addition to their skin library than Ashe.

    And Zero dont you feel that if you are going to throw a skin in the mix to compete with already great 5 star skins like Woad, Amethyst, and Queen Ashe and at the same price point that it should have something incredibly special going for it beyond lovely splash art ?

    Zero, I just dont get it. Its a good skin. Its a nice skin for Ashe. But dont you feel a bit like … yeah Ashe gets another 4 star skin … Meh … yawn.

    In the past few months, Tryn has gotten a 6th skin, Renekton has gotten a 6th skin, Ashe has gotten a 6th skin and everyone of these champions already had at least 1 high rated 5 star Zero rated skin in their library. Sivir also got her 6th skin but even without a skin rated 5 stars, her new snow skin didnt leapfrog the other 5 skins you already have rated 3 stars or above.

    Ahri got her 4th skin which is more sensible but even then Im not sure that it outshines Foxfire. Only Diana got a well needed 2nd skin and even then it sits at the same price point as Valkyrie and you rate it lower than DV Diana which makes me sad.

    I suppose that more people own Ashe than Jinx because of price point differentials but Riot could fix that in a hurry by dropping the prices on champions that have been out for 2 years or more.

    People would buy more skins if they owned more champions so I dont see the downside in doing it. Maybe they need to explore ip sales for older champions.

    Well heres hoping 2014 gains traction and Riot starts making skins for champions that need them instead of pumping out skins for our champions that already own several of them.

    Thanks for your great reviews. Looking forward to your opinion on this issue.

    • Not at all. We agree that there’s a certain tendency to ignore champions with few skins, which are usually unpopular, and instead prioritize popular ones with large wardrobes. It’s particularly problematic because many champions with few skins even have a low IP prize so it’s access isn’t an issue. So, it they had more varied skins they could attract a larger audience. After all, looks matter.

      If a champion like Ashe receives a new skin one would expect it to add something novel with respect to the others but that’s not the case with Heartseeker. The only things that stand out are the new particles, which aren’t re-colours like the others, the new sounds and recall. Still, they aren’t particularly striking.

      Therefore, it seems like modern skins are content with adding more of the same to sexy archer Ashe and brutally angry Renekton. Heartseeker and Scorched Earth, to name the latest ones only, don’t deviate from the direction of previous skins so they struggle to define an identity for themselves. On top of that they need to go above and beyond in features to truly feel special.

      The large cast of champions also doesn’t help as new players would have to either spend huge amounts of money or time to unlock their favourite champions. Maybe in the statistics all looks fine but from the look of someone who wants to start playing the game it’s simply overwhelming. Just open a new account and you’ll get quite a clear picture.

      It’s possible that in 2014 the direction and quality of skins will need to be addressed but also how to make the game more welcoming to new players and more appealing for veterans. Good things have been done so far yet there is a need for change because, overall, there’s a lot that needs to be improved.

    • As a Heartseeker skin, the Ashe one is infinitely better than the older Vayne effort. The recall animation alone is worth the price.

      The Heartseeker theme only works for characters that shoot some form of arrows — so for a male Heartseeker, your obvious go-to champion would be Varus, who is instead getting a skin based on http://forums.na.leagueoflegends.com/board/showthread.php?t=3563463 .
      Admittedly Ezrael uses some form of (energy) bow as well, but him going after Taric on Valentine’s Day might not go over well in some of the markets LoL operates in.
      Twitch is another (cross-) bow user that could use some love, as his skins are universally terribad — yet making a plague rat work with the love concept is somewhat far off.

      • You are right that it’s better but to an extent, we still think that Heartseeker Ashe isn’t at the level of other skins at the same price. In particular, the model seems somewhat washed out and while the particles are good they aren’t innovative either.

        It’s probable that for future Valentine’s skins they’ll tackle other concepts like Debonair; in the case of Jayce. We agree that Heartseeker isn’t exactly an idea with great flexibility.

  16. Don’t know whether or not we should point out typos, but I’ll do it anyways.

    “Fleljord Ashe is a good piece but it leaves the feeling that it can be excellent but, sadly, isn’t.”

  17. You know am wondering they might change the textures and particle effects after Season 5 approaches, do you have to reconsider your reviews later on?

    • They’ve already started to update the textures of some skins so that they make a better fit on the upcoming visual upgrade for Summoner’s Rift. It’s mostly a layer of polish but when necessary we adjust the reviews. Although, changes are minor enough that, at least so far, there’s no need to alter the ratings.
