Bewitching Morgana, Bewitching Tristana and Little Devil Teemo
Harrowing 2016

The ritual requires hundreds to sate the hunger of the Lord. Once he is summoned, nothing can save those involved. Even mentioning this is a bad omen. It’s too late now. We have to accept what we have done and go down through the trapdoor we have opened. Let’s embrace the end.

Ivern, the Green Father
Ivern, the Green Father

Many seasons ago, Ivern wasn’t a father nor was he green. His presence caused fear and yet it still does. According to legend, there is an entity that protects the forests in all of their flora and fauna. He isn’t often seen but his presence can always be felt. Those that commune with wildlife have nothing to worry about and much to learn from his gentle disposition. Those that trample over the natural order will find that he is much more than a lone rumour. Ivern, the Green Father watches over all life and we are only asked to respect its cycle and bloom.

Koi Nami Element Chroma Pack
Skin Chroma Packs Review

Skin chroma packs provide the opportunity of customising a champion’s skin with specific colour combinations. When a chroma offers a different look, that’s visually attractive and that also enhances or plays with the skin’s features it can be worthwhile. However, that’s only provided both champion and skin are owned. With that assumption firmly in place, let’s see which chroma packs are worth getting.

Blitzcrank Steel Chroma Pack
Base Chroma Packs Review

Base chroma packs offer different colours for each champion’s classic skin. As re-colours, what matters the most is if they offer a different look to the classic one and if it is pleasing to the eye.

Kled, the Cantankerous Cavalier
Kled, the Cantankerous Cavalier

Argumentative and grumpy, Kled the Cantankerous Cavalier is also known for his bloodlust and stubborn refusal to back down from any battle. As most folk tales, his stories are usually much taller than the heroes they speak about but there’s usually a trail of truth from where they originate. So, if you happen to be in a battlefield and you spot a reptile absentmindedly eating insects you may want to take care. It wouldn’t surprise anyone if it were Skaarl about to be summoned back into action by Kled and that only means one thing: charge. If you hear the word, don’t get in the way.

Lunar Wraith Morgana, Lunar Wraith Caitlyn and Radiant Wukong
Lunar Revel 2016

The Dark Queens rule with darkness over their lands. Each day, the Snake Queen aims at the Sun and the Wolf Queen ensnares it from the skies. Held prisoner in their castle it leaves behind an eternal night.
A burning light arrives on the Dark Queens’ lands bathing them with hope. As a radiant dawn the Monkey King defies their alluring grace and shatters their illusions with his magical staff. He mocks their animal shapes and escapes mounted on his cloud.
They chase him over hills and seas but every time they catch him it’s only a decoy. Tired, the Dark Queens retire to their castle and, in their slumber, the Sun breaks free from their chains. The light returns and jubilations warm each heart; until a new dusk is to return, once again.
