Champions: Anivia, Ashe, Gragas, Janna, Nunu, Olaf, Tryndamere, Udyr, Quinn and Valor plus Volibear
Frost Queen Janna is without doubt the best option in this sale. She offers an elaborate and satisfying ice theme that suits her well and also brings a lot to see. Something similar can be said about King Tryndamere with its regal take on the barbarian. It’s a full re-model for a very low price and while fantastic it’s also appealing.
Alternatively, Hextech Anivia, Primal Udyr as well as Phoenix Quinn and Valor provide rather nice themes and executions. The first two are just re-models but well done ones. The last may not be as eloquent about its theme as it should but still has an interesting style.
Freljord Ashe, Gragas Esq., Demolisher Nunu and Northern Storm Volibear are options worth considering at the least. These skins aren’t as well developed as the previous ones but they offer some nice elements that fans may appreciate.
Lastly, Glacial Olaf is as simple a re-texture as it could be. The skin doesn’t offer much of interest and while not a terrible option it’s a rather uninspired one. If you are a dedicated Olaf fan you could consider it but there’s little to be excited about.
|Quinn and Valor||Volibear|
If you’d like to let IP farming freeze in the Freljordian tundra then Quinn and Valor along with Volibear are the best choices. Not only you’ll save a lot of IP but the discount, albeit small, applied to the high RP price nets the most saved RP as well. Of course, that also means you’ll be paying the most so decide wisely.
On the contrary, Anivia, Gragas, Olaf, Janna, Tryndamere, Ashe and Nunu aren’t worth unlocking with RP, even at 3150 IP. The IP prices aren’t very high so unless you are on an unlocking spree of Freljordian proportions it’s better to let the wallet breathe some fresh air and rely on your IP pool.
