Skins: Divine Soraka, Temple Jax and Loch Ness Cho’Gath
Champions: Zyra, Caitlyn and Kassadin
An appealing set of skins is offered this weekend. They seem perfect for an adventure story so let’s give a quick look at the characters.
The mystic lady: Divine Soraka is the skin that intends to present her as a most pure celestial incarnation. In spite of her charming dress, it’s a rather modest look that does make her human but not particularly divine. Still, fans of the Starchild should consider giving Divine Soraka a chance.
The skilful warrior: at a glance, Temple Jax aims to turn the Grandmaster into a Shaolin monk. Sadly, their iconic aspect is forced to conform to Jax’s style to the point that it’s more of a hint. Jax fans may find it a skin with a nice concept but the execution seems a tad lacking.
The monstrous abomination: Loch Ness Cho’Gath is a straightforward yet attractive skin. It takes the Terror of the Void and makes him an underwater dweller. The result is rather appealing even though the particles aren’t adjusted to match. All in all, for this price it’s a fantastic skin for Cho’Gath.
Saving IP can be useful so in that regard Zyra and Caitlyn are the best options to complete a champion collection while keeping that resource untouched. Kassadin can be an option if you are hard pressed to conserve IP but he shouldn’t take too long to unlock without spending RP.
Moving on to skins, Haunted Zyra is too new to go on sale and Wildfire was discounted last July so there’s nothing to look up to. The Sheriff indicates that her Arctic Warfare, Officer and Sheriff disguises have all been offered already. Still, if you’d rather a Safari expedition then you could get ready for the parting day: December the 21st.
Finally, Deep One, Pre-Void and Harbinger Kassadin were on sale this year but on the first half. Therefore, it’s possible for the skins to return, especially Harbinger, but this is far from set in stone. Unless, you really can’t spare the IP there’s no need to rush.
