Period: 7th to 10th of June, 2013
Skins: Foxfire Ahri, Almost-Prom King Amumu and General Wukong
Champions: Karthus, Swain and Sejuani
If you’ve ever wanted to complete your browser collection then now you have even less excuses with Foxfire Ahri being on sale. It’s a skin with a clear and appealing style that stands out. The implementation isn’t as consistent as it could be but the result is certainly good. Ahri fans shouldn’t miss this opportunity.
Almost-Prom King Amumu is a skin with a whimsical concept that is neither funny nor particularly attractive. As far as looks go it’s not a bad skin but there isn’t much on offer anyway.
General Wukong is interesting on paper but the implementation of the ideas isn’t exactly stellar. The equipment isn’t bad but the enlightenment signals make him look lifeless. In general, the aspect is a bit drab so the skin isn’t bad but doesn’t rise beyond good.
If you want to trample the fields and avoid any IP farming then Sejuani and Bristle are the duo you need. Unfortunately, her skins are nothing noteworthy but if you want to be prepared for the eventual arrival of Queen Sejuani this could be a good opportunity. Just be mindful that it may take a good while and your IP reserves may be enough by then.
Swain stands midst good IP farming avoidance and not avoiding enough; depending on how much IP you usually gather. As far as skins go he has a good selection but their sale will probably take a while as they were all discounted at the beginning of the year. Patience may be the best choice to wait for a sale so there’s really no rush.
Finally, Karthus isn’t worth purchasing unless you have a severe need for a lich singer. His IP price is rather reasonable and while Grim Reaper Karthus may appear on sale he shouldn’t take long to unlock with IP. You could aim to be prepared depending on your IP needs, as sales aren’t certain, but you may as well find enough IP in your pool.
