Period: 17th to 20th of May, 2013
Skins: Void Nocturne, Myrmidon Pantheon and Pentakill Karthus
Champions: Brand, Twitch and Taric
Those that wonder what nightmares may exist in the Void will find an interesting choice this weekend. Void Nocturne offers the result of a dreadful collaboration with a look that evokes horrors of dimensions beyond comprehension. Besides the attractive concept, the fascinating model and fitting Void trail make this skin a great option.
Pentakill Karthus is a good choice for fans of heavy metal with an emphasis on flamboyant spectacle. The look makes clear hard rock references but doesn’t really feel special. It makes for fitting visuals for the Deathsinger but it might be better for Pentakill and Karthus fans.
As far as re-colours go Myrmidon Pantheon manages an eye-catching aspect. The contrasting colours provide an attractive aesthetic but it’s one that remains very familiar to his classic one. Fans of Pantheon may find it an interesting alternative but it’s a skin that doesn’t set its aims high.
IP farmers will find that their constant ploughing of the Fields of Justice isn’t a worthless endeavour; in particular, due to the champions on offer on this sale. At a glance, none of these champions warrant a purchase in sheer terms of farming avoidance.
Brand’s price may be high for some and Cryocore is a look that offers a good argument. The same can be said about Zombie Brand but you’ll have to wait until Harrowing for that. Coupled with the fact that there’s no certain time for Cryocore’s sale it could be enough to farm sufficient IP.
Twitch has been having an exterminator skin in development for quite some time; which should be released in the future. Additionally, his gangster style is a great option but as his IP price is low enough and there isn’t a scheduled time for neither skin release nor sale, it’s better to wait.
Finally, Taric fans may like his leg warmers and blood-red gems with good reason. Therefore, any RP available is better spent on unlocking such looks; his IP price ensures a fast and brief IP harvest.
