Conclusion:

In spite of new particles and sounds Heartseeker Ashe’s model isn’t up to par with the attractive promise made by the splash art. The skin does offer a lot, nonetheless, and the message is conveyed; just not in the expected way. For fans of hearts and the Frost Archer it still is a nice option.

For its price, Pentakill Karthus doesn’t offer a full re-model though there are new quotes from time to time. Still, the main issue is that the core base is too evident and the result isn’t bad but could’ve been better developed. Ultimately, it’s an all right skin that fans might enjoy.

Straightforward but appealing, Thunder Lord Volibear adds a regal suit of golden armour over Volibear’s new dark fur. The contrast of colours as well as the plates design catch the eye and give a different style. The changes aren’t revolutionary but, for its price, they are effective and attractive. For fans of the Thunder’s Roar it’s a fine alternative to consider.

Champions:

Draven
Draven Splash Art
975 -> 487 RP / 6300 IP
Brand Taric
Brand Splash Art Taric Splash Art
880 -> 440 RP / 4800 IP 585 -> 292 RP / 1350 IP

Conclusion:

If you are having doubts remember that the answer to all questions is quite simple: Draven. Need to save IP? Draven. Not only does Draven give a lot of himself but this time he even gives a hand in saving IP; though he’ll need quite some RP. An alternative to farming IP is always to set the fields on fire with the help of Brand; though he too would need RP, economy. Of course outrageous gems can be very valuable but Taric’s IP price is quite reasonable so there’s no need to spend RP.

This year has been rather busy for Draven in terms of discounts; Primetime aside. His Soul Reaver costume was on sale at the beginning of May and he certainly advertised it well: Draven style. Before that, in January, his Gladiator show got a price cut as a promotional move. Although, if you ask Draven, he’ll say that all you need to make a good job is Draven.

With his flaming persona always setting things on fire the market isn’t the place where Brand feels the most comfortable in. Still, he comes from time to time, like in February when he appeared in an Apocalyptic mood. Perhaps it’s less trouble with his Cryocore suit: we don’t recall any fire incidents last December.

Perhaps due to his collection of gems we don’t often see Taric around sales. We do remember his Armor of the Fifth Age last January but that’s just one a few apparitions. In August his Bloodstone armour was a bit of a sensation but rubies may be too expensive for armour. Perhaps one of these days he’ll find a way to make more affordable protection.
