Period: 24th to 27th of May, 2013
Skins: Stinger Akali, Deep One Kassadin and Hextech Janna
Champions: Elise, Jax and Zilean
In spite of the wildly dissimilar concepts this sale offers interesting options. The ones the stand out are Hextech Janna and Deep One Kassadin. The first is a satisfying and attractive re-model that suits Janna in more traditional but not any less appealing clothing. If you’d like a reasonable and nice skin with a little steampunk feel then Hextech Janna is a great choice.
Deep One Kassadin is a deserved tribute to H.P. Lovecraft’s Cthulhu myths by the Void Walker. The changes are limited but the fascinating textures used for his lower body surely make the skin worthwhile. If you are a fan of the Void, Cthulhu or both then this is a skin you’ll enjoy despite its polarized nature.
The re-texture on offer for the Fist of Shadow is indeed plain and simple. Still, Stinger Akali could be a nice alternative to her classic skin. It’s hardly a groundbreaking skin but is different enough to warrant its own space. It may be a better choice for Akali fans but it’s hardly a terrible choice.
If you want to snare, grasp and eliminate all IP farming then maybe you should ask for the Spider Queen’s help. This weekend, Elise is the best option to avoid quite a bit of IP accruement. Unfortunately, Death Blossom Elise will probably take a good while to go on sale so if that’s on your mind there’s no need to rush.
Finally, neither Jax nor Zilean make for appealing purchases. Their IP prices are rather low and it wouldn’t take long to unlock them. They do have some nice skins available but that’s just another reason to rely on IP and reserve RP.
