Period: 13th to 16th of March, 2015
Skins: Bioforge Darius, Midnight Ahri and Ruthless Pantheon
Champions: Fiora, Lee Sin and Heimerdinger
Biological modifications, fur coats and big shields may appear as very dissimilar elements but are all chosen by the warriors that visit this weekend sale. Such variety is certainly interesting so let’s see what they have to say about their choices.
Rough in appearance and dull at a glance Bioforge Darius is a skin of polar opposites. When an ability is used the suit lights up with the power of the serum and catches the eye with an appealing contrast of colours. The idea is certainly attractive but the implementation unnecessarily uneven. Fans of the Hand of Noxus will find it a different option if they can excuse its issues.
Simple but attractive the dark fur coat provided by Midnight Ahri is a great addition for an elegant lady. There’s only the new clothing but it’s definitely a good match for the Nine Tails Fox. If you like Ahri then Midnight is a straightforward but enticing alternative.
More homage to He-Man than anything original Ruthless Pantheon has little to offer. It might be interpreted as a fantasy take on a warrior but the tribute looms all over the skin. For the price it’s not a bad choice but it’s clearly tied to its source.
Others try, Fiora succeeds in what she endeavours and if saving IP is the task there’s no better option. Lee Sin, with his unequalled martial might, is also a great choice but his peace of mind isn’t the same as unbridled determination. With his clever devices Heimerdinger can also help but not as much; many will find his IP price rather reasonable.
Wherever a challenge lies Fiora is sure to follow. In fact, it was only a few days ago when the Nightraven defied all odds and came out triumphant when all seemed lost; her legend keeps growing. One could wonder if such skill with the blade doesn’t have anything in common with the Royal Guard. When she visited in September we were impressed by her abilities too. Perhaps it’s all a coincidence but hopefully we’ll see them again.
Last year Lee Sin was quite busy: he had been giving lessons all year round. In December he taught the way of the Dragon Fist, in November Traditional martial arts, in October the path of the Acolyte, in September Pool Party relaxation and in June Muay Thai. When it comes to martial disciplines Lee Sin is the one to rely on. With some luck 2015 will be a year with as much activity for him.
A great mind knows how important it is to be careful when dealing with Hazmat; that’s why we haven’t seen a discount yet, right? It’s certainly better than witnessing a Blast Zone as we did in August. Still, it wouldn’t be a bad idea for his Piltover Customs products to receive a discount soon. Since January 2014, they’ve stayed away of sales.
