Period: 10th to 23rd of February, 2015
Bundles: Year of the Dragon, Year of the Serpent, Year of the Horse, Year of the Goat and Lunar Revel
Note: the bundles reduce their prices depending on which content you already own. In case you don’t own a champion in a skin bundle the price rises by the champion’s price. Wards included in some bundles are discounted to 1% of their price.
The Year of the Goat brings back spirits from that past. The horse, serpent, and dragon appear in the shape of bundles and skins are sold with different discounts; though they tend to be rather modest. Also, many of the offered skins are always available and so eligible for regular sales. Therefore, take a look to see if there’s anything of interest but don’t expect any fantastic surprises.
For those adept at gambling there’s the Mystery Chests and Lunar Revel Mystery Box; the latter with double chance of unlocking a Lunar Revel skin. They are always an option but not everyone would agree that the risk justifies the saving.
Year of the Dragon
3900 -> 2925 RP
7330 -> 5497 RP
This bundle offers skins that have all been on sale at 50%, some not too long ago. Besides, it doesn’t add anything else to make the set tempting. It’s merely a collection of skins with a subtle discount. It could be an option to get both champions and skins for a bit less but with a bit of patience a lot of RP can be saved.
Year of the Serpent
Ward: Banner of the Serpent Ward
5632 -> 4225 RP
9234 -> 6771 RP
This set of skins has great quality despite the Warring Kingdoms ones being somewhat overpriced. The addition of a ward skin tries to make the bundle more palatable but if you are after the skins then 25% won’t be tempting enough. They have and will be offered again at a lower price. Considering that these skins aren’t legacy you may be better off waiting for regular sales.
Year of the Horse
Ward: Banner of the Horse Ward
3306 -> 2810 RP
5746 -> 4884
With such a small discount there isn’t much temptation to acquire this bundle. It’s worth remembering that Lunar Goddess Diana is a regular skin and so it’ll eventually reach a discount of 50% on sale. Add to that that fact that bundles are flexible and so, if you are looking to save RP, the bundle doesn’t look like such a great option.
Year of the Goat
Discount: 0% but Firecracker Jinx is 975 RP until the 16th of February
Extras: Firecracker Icon and Firecracker Ward
Total Price: 5488 RP (until the 16th), 5863 RP afterwards
Skins’ Price: 2933 RP (until the 16th,) 5488 RP afterwards
As a mere convenience to catch all the 2015 Lunar Revel skins in one go this bundle doesn’t have much to attract buyers. None of these skins are legacy so they’ll arrive at a sale sooner or later. Therefore, if you don’t mind waiting you can save a good amount of RP. This bundle only has an icon and a ward to offer so if that’s not to your liking there’s nothing else to convince you.
Wards: Gong, Banner of the Serpent, Lantern of the Serpent and Banner of the Horse
24650 -> 12325 RP
15384 -> 7692 RP
A huge bundle including all previous Lunar Revel content at a 50% discount is something that shouldn’t be ignored. The problem arises because of the variety: getting a good discount also means getting skins that you may not like. The fact that the quality of the skins is also variable doesn’t help matters.
So, if you like all of the skins it’s a great way of filling any Lunar Revel gaps. You just have to remember that the majority of the skins can go on regular sales, and most already have, so if there’s just a few you like it’s better to wait.
