Conclusion:

This quiet sale shouldn’t be ignored as it offers a trio of interesting, though not excellent, skins. If you like musketeer stories then Twisted Fate embodies such French soldiers quite well in his Musketeer Twisted Fate skin. It may be a bit of a forced concept but who doesn’t like to play some cards?

Bilgerat Rumble and Dryad Soraka complete the skin sale with just good enough looks. The former captures the corsair feel in its own unique way. While the whimsical adaptation is effective it also has untapped potential. The latter is a rather modest interpretation of Soraka. In essence, it’s just green Soraka but fans may appreciate the little extra elements added.

Champions:

Cassiopeia

Vladimir Gragas

Conclusion:

If IP farming is an activity you’d rather skip in favour of a drink of good Graggy Ice or other more essential fluids then you’ll find this sale lacking a bit of punch. Cassiopeia and Vladimir would help avoid ploughing the fields a bit but not everybody might find their IP prices high enough to warrant a purchase. Also, they both have quite nice skins to unlock so reserving RP for such an endeavour may be a better option.

Besides, if you are in the mood for a drinking partner then Gragas wouldn’t mind if you rely on your IP reserves. His IP price is low enough to hardly affect them so instead worry about what his liquor may alter. Additionally, he has some great skins so RP is better spent on them.
