Overview

April starts to say goodbye and bundles come to wave the month away. There are several different themes running through the bundles with some being more reasonable than others. In the end, what matters is whether the skins included are worthwhile given that discount never go over a regular sale. So, should one get a whole set instead of waiting for a sale? Let’s find out.

It comes as no surprise that Gladiator Draven is the star of the bundle; who could’ve doubted him? That said, while the other skins aren’t bad they particularly special either. If you just want the best then a sale is preferable. If the specific selection appeals to you then the bundle may be of interest.

Let’s get to this first: Festive Maokai is a lacking skin and there’s no way around it; visual upgrade or not. The rest of the skins can be quite nice; even the Pumpkinhead Fiddlesticks despite his modesty. There’s no doubt that a discount on this skin is tempting but it comes at the price of getting other skins which are alright and one that is tragic for its wasted potential. Unless Festive Maokai looks like something palatable and you like the whole rest then you may be better off picking the specifics in sales.

Gauge and Engage

This is a rather good bundle brought down by the appearance of the lacklustre Surgeon Shen. The rest of the skins are quite good so most of the bundle is quite tempting. The problem is that paying for deadweight means sacrificing the already not stellar discount. For most, regular sales will be a better option. Only those that like the whole of the skins and accept Surgeon Shen’s shortcomings will find the whole bundle a good option.

Support and Escort

While the best skins aren’t perfect there’s much to like in them. The other skins aren’t bad by any means so the bundle, by and large, is quite good. Of course, it would appeal if you find the eclectic selection of skins appealing and you, evidently, like to support; given how these champions can hardly fill any other role, some good time ago that wasn’t so strict. Therefore, this is a good bundle, a bit uneven, but there’s enough to like. Still, if you only like a few then sales will, eventually, come to the rescue.
