Conclusion:

This sale may be about snow but it’s the savannah where the choicest catch is: Hyena Warwick is the recommended purchase and with good reason. The skin doesn’t astound at first sight but its animations and laugh effectively adapt Warwick into an appealing were-hyena. If you like skins that give a new feel to a champion then this is a great choice.

Northern Storm Swain is rather straightforward but not any less interesting. A pleasing and plausible snow uniform and owl give a clean and elegant style to the Master Tactician. Beatrice also reflects the lighter raven form which isn’t groundbreaking but looks good enough. Fans of Swain will find much to like in this Arctic take.

Gothic Orianna is a passable skin for Orianna fans. It doesn’t do much but what it does has appeal. The dark aesthetic suits Orianna well though it doesn’t stray far from her classic look. It’s not revolutionary but may be a nice alternative.

Champions:

Volibear
Volibear Splash Art
975 -> 487 RP / 6300 IP
Galio Blitzcrank

880 -> 440 RP / 4800 IP 790 -> 395 RP / 3150 IP

Conclusion:

Volibear takes the vanguard against IP farming this time. His skins don’t give many good reasons to unlock him but they offer some interesting themes anyway. A new skin seems to be in the making but it may take a while still. Unless you are in a rush for a furry tank then you may want to wait.

Galio also doesn’t have the best wardrobe to offer. Considering you IP gathering capability you may consider him a good way of escaping from some farming. Regardless, it may be better to simply unlock him with good old IP and wait for a really astonishing skin.

Finally, Blitzcrank is simply better unlocked with IP. RP is better put to use in the purchase of iBlitzcrank; either now at 975 RP or when it goes on sale at 1350 RP. His other skins aren’t bad but seeing as his price is manageable there’s no rush.
