Period: 10th to 13th of February, 2015
Skins: Jaximus, Darkforge Jarvan IV and Sherwood Forest Ashe
Champions: Draven, Fizz and Olaf
Armoured warriors and a green archer appear in this week’s sale. Let the arrow fly and the fight commence.
Turning the Grandmaster into a gladiator is a good idea but Jaximus’ concept ends up not being that well represented. The strong classic base prevents the outfit from recreating the look of an actual gladiator. That’s all the skin offers and it isn’t bad but there’s room for improvement.
With a sober but imposing design Darkforge Jarvan IV presents the Prince in one of his best armours. Both elegant and functional Jarvan IV appearance isn’t without a dose of stylization but offers a reasonable balance. While not perfect, Darkforge is a rather interesting option for fans of the Prince.
While a re-colour isn’t necessarily a bad idea Sherwood Forest Ashe has more complexity in its name that in its implementation. Even though green particles are added along the green textures the aspect doesn’t go far from her classic look. In spite of its low price this is a skin that doesn’t really offer much.
Being his League, Draven knows how to avoid farming a good amount of IP. Fizz is trickier in that regard but can give a helping hand as well. Olaf isn’t such a clear case: his price isn’t low but is reasonable enough so IP may be a good way of hiring him.
In spite of his Primetime job Draven has found time to visit sales. A few weeks ago he appeared in his Gladiator outfit, ready for the show. Besides last August, his Soul Reaver costume was also offered. With that in mind, for the time being it seems like Draven will be busying himself with his favourite subject: himself.
Not yet comfortable enough with the Void to come with his dark presence Fizz hasn’t been absent for long. A couple weeks ago he brought his gear and tried his luck as a Fisherman. His guided Atlantean travels were sold on October and the Tundra trips on September so we’ll have to wait to join the Trickster in a new adventure.
With the Pentakill visit still fresh on our minds and skulls we can rest assured that Olaf won’t be back in a while; hopefully. However, his Forsaken temper hails from August and his Glacial mood from December 2013 so chances are that he’ll make an unstoppable visit in some form in the near future.
