Today, 7th of December, the Victorious Team disbands after a hugely successful and profitable campaign. Their special discounts on members and outfits acquisitions finish by the end of the day so don’t miss on the hype. Remember that Victorious Team’s members have been handpicked from the cream of the crop: its roster is filled with the finest and better looking exponents for each role.

When you find a battle where the odds seem insurmountable you can be sure that these professionals will be up to any challenge; especially if RP is involved. As part of their new VT brand, they offer special discounts on team members and outfit’s purchases. Take a look at these champions’ dossiers and choose the finest abilities and fanciest styles:

Dark Valkyrie Diana Splash Art Dark Valkyrie Diana Model
975 -> 487 RP

Dark Valkyrie Diana embodies the classic dark warrior: dark dress, dark particles, dark name; everything makes sense. As the team’s mage she fulfils her role rather well though her diving tendencies could be considered suicidal; though gloomily fitting. Nevertheless, if you don’t mind Diana’s enticing yet moody look and soliloquies there’s no better choice.

Bittersweet Lulu Splash Art Bittersweet Lulu Model
975 -> 487 RP

Bittersweet Lulu is definitely a sweet, helping yordle; almost literally. She’s a teammate that is always ready to send Pix to the rescue, from a reasonably safe distance, to assist wherever and whenever is necessary. She’s more straightforward than other support mates: cupcake as debuff, seems only natural. Regardless, if you do like her whimsies then you’ll savour her confectionery style.

Demolisher Nunu
Demolisher Nunu Splash Art Demolisher Nunu Model
975 -> 487 RP

Some think that giving armour to polar bears is a bad idea but apparently Nunu doesn’t share that thought in regards to yetis. Demolisher Nunu is ready to tank and munch his way through any kind of opposition and truth be told, he couldn’t have prepared Willump any better. If you want to be as safe as houses when snacking and freezing enemies, then here’s what you’re looking for.

Glacial Olaf
Glacial Olaf Splash Art Glacial Olaf Model
520 -> 260 RP

Sometimes a touch of blue and a white beard are enough to scare carries. In fact, Glacial Olaf prefers to keep things simple and functional when recklessly swinging his axes. He may look a bit monochromatic but his berserker’s rage stays as vicious as ever. While it’s not as exciting as stopping a carry in their tracks with an axe firmly planted on their back, it’s not a bad look at all.

Frosted Ezreal Splash Art Frosted Ezreal Model
520 -> 260 RP

Frosted Ezreal doesn’t look very icy but he does look like someone with a goth vein. If leather boots and jacket plus eye shadow don’t cure you desire for gothic fashions then few will come as close. As the team’s carry he certainly could’ve chosen a more aggressive style but who can really argue with someone that can Trueshot Barrage you when lovingly hugging your favourite tower?

Today, 3rd of December, it’s your last chance to get in good graces with Lord Darius by helping him along Renegade Talon and Jurassic Cho’Gath apprehend the escaped prisoners. As if the Blood Brothers House wasn’t in bad enough state the Lord has to cope with the humiliation of a breakout. He’s even been forced to employ monsters and yordles; totally unfitting of a Noxian aristocrat. Therefore, your help in this matter will be rewarded accordingly.

As you can imagine, donations in RP are always welcome in Noxus and the Lord himself assures you that they will be put to good use in the capture of the prisoners; you head depends on believing his word. However, as he’s such a benevolent, and desperate, ruler he wouldn’t like to see you leave empty handed or handless. The Lord has agreed that for your entirely voluntary contribution you will get access to these individuals in his service:

Lord Darius Splash Art Lord Darius Model
975 -> 487 RP

Lord Darius is a man of his word and so he sets the example by offering abilities of such quality that they will make you lose your head; better not literally. In the end, he’s just trying to get more funds to pay for a more regal outfit. The one he wears may seem elaborate from the waist up but it’s actually quite dull and overall not regal enough for his stature. It’s your head and RP; so choose wisely.

Renegade Talon Splash Art Renegade Talon Model
520 -> 260 RP

Renegade Talon seems to be following his Lord’s orders but he’s actually trying to sneak away some currency to get himself a new set of clothes. It’s understandable as he’s been practically left to wear rags, well not exactly, but that’s no professional outfit for a keen assassin. It may be useful for blending in among crowds but with that aspect no court would receive him.

Jurassic Cho'Gath Splash Art Jurassic Cho'Gath Model
975 -> 487 RP

Now Jurassic Cho’Gath is a whole different case: he’s been starved to bones; literally. In spite of the pitiful state he’s in, as a true devourer from the Void, Cho’Gath manages to stay deadly albeit bony. If you want to see him return to a healthier state then he’ll reward you with spikes, screams and other peculiarities natural of his sort. Not a bad deal if you like your monsters huge but light.

Today, 30th of November, Jailbreak Graves, Blight Crystal Varus and Rugged Garen will finally leave Noxian territory. You still have some time to hire their services, while they are on the run, for 50% less. Tomorrow, far from the Noxian prisons they will scatter and become unavailable. Don’t waste this chance to acquire the unequalled skills of these specialists.

Jailbreak Graves Splash Art Jailbreak Graves Model
975 -> 487 RP

Jailbreak Graves is not only adept at escapes but also offers many additional skills; perhaps too many. His clothes are a good reflection of him, as they usually are: they are loaded with elements to the point of saturation. His outfit may be elaborate, it certainly isn’t bad looking, but you’ll get tired just from looking at it.

Blight Crystal Varus Splash Art Blight Crystal Varus Model
975 -> 487 RP

There’s always a sniper in every team and Blight Crystal Varus puts his yellow arrows to good use. However, he seems to have some issues at deciding if he’s corrupted by a fluid or crystals. Maybe that won’t affect his aim but as far as looks go, he seems quite inconsistent.

Rugged Garen
Rugged Garen Splash Art Rugged Garen Model
975 -> 487 RP

There are many ways of winning and spinning is this man’s choice. Rugged Garen prefers simple and reliable tactics and the same can be said about his clothes and gear. Still, for someone who prefers to worry solely on reeling he does have a fashion sense. If you are looking to avoid anything complex then he seems like the most straightforward yet appealing choice.

Today, 26th of November, Fizz will finally get rid of the demonstrations by Frostblade Irelia, Amethyst Ashe, Cowgirl Miss Fortune and company so as to enjoy some peaceful shark sledding. If you are interested in any of Swain’s new combat manoeuvres don’t miss this chance to get them at 50% less. By tomorrow the Master Tactician’s drill will conclude and these powerful stratagems will return to their habitual price.

Frostblade Irelia Splash Art Frostblade Irelia Model
975 -> 487 RP

Frostblade Irelia offers a demonstration of the virtues of a surprise attack with Bladesurge. Her form-fitting suit is a good choice as it allows freedom of movement; plus a generous exposition of her silhouette. Moreover, her icy light armour is a proper addition that provides protection without hindering her dextrous movements. Without a doubt it’s a nice demonstration by a finely dressed lady.

Amethyst Ashe Splash Art Amethyst Ashe Model
975 -> 487 RP

Amethyst Ashe provides an interesting lesson on how to use a decoy as bait. Her bright amethyst dress makes her easy to see and attractive to stare at. However, those foolish enough to disregard her purple Frost Shots find soon enough that they are simple moths flying too close to the fire. It surely is a fantastic exposition by a talented archer wearing a fascinating outfit.

Cowgirl Miss Fortune Splash Art Cowgirl Miss Fortune Model
975 -> 487 RP

Cowgirl Miss Fortune is in charge of no other tactic than shock and awe; as it should be expected. Her attire is a fitting choice as its revealing enough to awe her enemy while her huge revolvers deliver all the necessary shock. Not a bad Far West inspired demo as long as we excuse Miss Fortune’s peculiar choices.

Today, 23rd of November, is a sad day as Morgana is forced to close her latest enterprise: her restaurant. As a final goodbye to this famed place Royal Shaco, Rune Wars Renekton and Primal Udyr joined her to offer unique dishes in every sense of the word; at half their usual price. By tomorrow you’ll have to rely on Sinful Succulence to sate your hunger with Morgana’s vital delicacies. So, don’t waste your chance to delight yourself with these unequalled masterpieces of the culinary world, here they are:

Royal Shaco Splash Art Royal Shaco Model
520 -> 260 RP

Royal Shaco offers a dish like few: Jack in the Box. With its colourful, squared aspect it appears deceptively simple when in fact it’s a dish that looks but also feels very nice on the palette. It’s true that it retains a classic flavour but Jack in the Box remains a stylish and attractive choice.

Rune Wars Renekton
Rune Wars Renekton Splash Art Rune Wars Renekton Model
975 -> 487 RP

Rune Wars Renekton presents an apt dish for dire times: Rune Wars Macaroni and Cheese; don’t expect fancy names out of this veteran as he prefers simple but effective recipes. The dish offers a combination of traditional elements that feels familiar yet stands out of the norm. It’s not a dish that excels in any particular facet but in general it’s a satisfying option.

Primal Udyr
Primal Udyr Splash Art Primal Udyr Model
975 -> 487 RP

Primal Udyr is an advocate of raw foods and his dish clearly reflects that: Fugu Sashimi. This, possibly and literally, fatal dish benefits from a careful preparation that allows multiple facets of its flavour to shine on their own. The combination of distinct and fascinating aspects creates a magnificent experience that is sure to delight even the most demanding palates.

Today, 19th of November, Elise is ready to season another set of champions and feast on their poor souls. Therefore, this midnight the discounts on Warlord Shen, Tango Evelynn and Lumberjack Sion come to an end; much like they soon will. If you are interested in any of her spiced playthings don’t miss this chance to get them at 50% less and maybe spare them some suffering; only if you are feeling benevolent. Heed Maokai’s warning and escape with as many as you can from the Twisted Treeline; lest the Spider Queen lose her lean figure with such banquets.

Warlord Shen
Warlord Shen Splash Art Warlord Shen Model
975 -> 487 RP

A samurai never quits, hesitates or wonders why; but we do. So, is Warlord Shen a good samurai skin? Well, aside from the name, yes it mostly is. Bright lemon armour is a questionable choice but a couple of deadly katanas and precise martial arts dispel some doubts. However, if you have a problem with a mushroom sashimono then no amount of bushido will be enough to make this garish warrior appealing.

Tango Evelynn
Tango Evelynn Splash Art Tango Evelynn Model
975 -> 487 RP

Tango could be considered hypnotic but what really catches the eye is Evelynn’s elegant dress and comfortable shoes. Dance, run, murder and all wearing high heels; who could equal her? Forget about any Night Hunter, Evelynn looks gracious and her anthophobia disregard makes for nice decoration. If you need a partner for a danse macabre then few will be as good company as Eve.

Lumberjack Sion
Lumberjack Sion Splash Art Lumberjack Sion Model
520 -> 260 RP

What would you expect from Sion? Of course he thinks the axe is for slaughter instead of wood cutting. Just look at that face, smart guy right? He can’t even keep his drab clothes from tattering and his reckless chops are turning him into the Tin Woodman. Let’s be fair, not all is bad, the axe appears clean and the cap, let’s say that it’s intact. There are better garments for a battlefield but his simple axe should suffice if you need a woodcutter.

By today, 16th of November, Elise has finally grown bored of her playthings and so she’s no longer interested in attracting more poor souls with her discounts. Blood Knight Hecarim, Infiltrator Irelia and Sandscourge Skarner return tomorrow to their habitual price. If you are interested in any of these skins, this is your chance to get them at 50% less. Remember to visit the store before the sale finishes at the end of the day; lest Elise place her interest into more succulent treats.

Blood Knight Hecarim Splash Art Blood Knight Hecarim Model
975 -> 487 RP

Blood Knight Hecarim mixes a mounted knight with a ghost and the ensuing pastiche of ideas isn’t as appealing as it seems. There’s a bit of both but if you are looking for a cohesive look then it simply isn’t here. Still, if you want to give the pony knight a chance there are worse options to take for a ride.

Infiltrator Irelia Splash Art Infiltrator Irelia Model
975 -> 487 RP

Infiltrator Irelia is a good concept dragged to the ground by an ineffective execution. There’s a bit of cyberpunk feel but neither technology nor stealth are actually present in the skin. At any rate, get the skin for the mask because the armour is lacklustre and the blades plain. This fair maiden deserves to look much better than this.

Sandscourge Skarner
Sandscourge Skarner Splash Art Sandscourge Skarner Model
975 -> 487 RP

If you ever wanted to impale people with a gigantic sand scorpion then just get Sandscourge Skarner. It’s every arachnid fan’s dream come true; as long as you don’t mind the minor adaptations done. Overall, the nice colour and fine design make for a wonderful time stabbing people with claws and sting alike; so that nobody forgets a scorpion’s nature.

Today, 12th of November, Graves has finally escaped Twitch so the family discounts on Mafia Graves, Commando Xin Zhao and Overlord Malzahar will be over soon. If you are interested in any of these skins then consider this sale an offer you can’t refuse. Tomorrow everything returns to its habitual price so visit the store before the sale finishes at the end of the day.

Mafia Graves Splash Art Mafia Graves Model
975 -> 487 RP

Graves is a true man of honour so being part of Cosa Nostra is only natural. Regardless, someone should ask him why he prefers a newsboy cap to a fedora. That’s not to say that he doesn’t look elegante and classy; just as his Tommy shotgun looks letale and huge. If you want to be part of the family, bambine, then there’s a price to pay and Mafia Graves‘ price is worth it; vale la pena di saperlo.

Commando Xin Zhao Splash Art Commando Xin Zhao Model
520 -> 260 RP

As far as camouflage is considered Commando Xin Zhao manages to put forth a reasonable military theme. Still, the look is molto semplice so Xin Zhao just looks plain. If you are a fan of sunglasses then go for it, with this look people may even mistake you for brush and allow for a surprise attack.

Overlord Malzahar
Overlord Malzahar Splash Art Overlord Malzahar Model
975 -> 487 RP

Overlord Malzahar aims to impress with his armour and sinister visage. Nevertheless, there isn’t much armour and he doesn’t look molto sinistro to start with. The armoured voidlings are a nice touch, fitting of a void obsessed mind, but the skin simply doesn’t look impactful. Maybe void cultists will like it yet for most it’s just an alright skin for a hovering lunatic.

Today, 9th of November, the poll closes as well as the the Ruthless Pantheon, Junkyard Trundle and Jurassic Kog’Maw skin sale. If you are interested in any of these skins don’t miss this chance to get them at 50% less. Tomorrow, no more votes may be cast and they will return to their habitual price so visit the store before the sale finishes at the end of the day.

Ruthless Pantheon
Ruthless Pantheon Splash Art Ruthless Pantheon Model
520 -> 260 RP

Ruthless Pantheon isn’t dressed for a poll he’s dressed for battle; as always. Equal parts He-Man homage and barbarian warrior this skin gives him a more classic warrior look. Still, the classic Pantheon remains, maybe too much, so while the aspect is different it’s not by much. Still, boots aren’t a bad idea for future man-drops and Ruthless Pantheon isn’t a bad idea for his fans either.

Junkyard Trundle
Junkyard Trundle Splash Art Junkyard Trundle Model
975 -> 487 RP

Unless the combination of filth and waste appears attractive you won’t find much to like in a troll dressed with trash. It sure suits Trundle and it sure is well executed but, do you really like his look? Unless you are convinced that you do, better to keep Trundle off the booths until he gets a thorough shower.

Jurassic Kog'Maw Splash Art Jurassic Kog'Maw Model
975 -> 487 RP

This may not be Kog’Maw’s actual skeleton, but it sure looks good. There’s a certain satisfaction in dissolving enemies in a pool of caustic fluid. When done with a little dinosaur skeleton it sure adds to the experience. Maybe voting isn’t for him, but if you think that Kog’Maw has been getting fat lately, then Jurassic Kog’Maw is a good way of thinning him.
