    1. D: why not this is like the best skin ever

    2. Sorry Noah, but I have to disagree. In game, Lulu's face is totally bland, she looks like a porcelain doll, her little dragon doesn't look ferocious at all, and the polymorphed enemy looks like a diseased newborn dragon, not afraid at all, just diseased and hurting.

      Also, the effects with this skin are kind of a letdown. I was hoping for small flames from her dragon. The effect is the same as her default skin, the only modified effect is her shield, which is now... purple? And harder to see?

      Sorry but I will remain with my kittens and cupcakes.

    4. Her 3 original skins are all better then this. It had potential but eugh :S The thing that bugs me is her Dragon Companion (Pix) Hate the fact it looks like a hppo or a pig, but I really like the polymorph lol

      Delete
    5. I adore the new skin :P Feels like her best to me.

      Delete
    6. To answer Noah- I don't really know. I just don't like how it looks in game. Don't get me wrong, the derpy dragon things it turns enemies into is adorable, but I'm not entirely wowed by this. As other people have said, I'm sticking to distraught cupcakes.

  4. Really big misstep with these skins personally...

  5. Terrible skin idea on Darius, it has nothing to do with the king of noxus, he deserved a serious skin not a cartoony like that one

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. ... Since when was Darius the king of Noxus?

      Delete
    2. The King of Noxus is the Master Tactician, Swain! Darius is just a nobody.

      Delete
    3. He should be dressed as a giant glove...because he is the hand of noxus. Even if he was a king skins are novelty.

    5. To be completely accurate Swain is the Grand General of Noxus (long story short, King) and Darius is his right hand man. Not exactly a nobody.

      And while I agree this Darius skin isn't thematically accurate... Hello ? It's a skin, they don't have to be ^^

    6. calm down guys, skins have never something to do with the story of a champ and you dont even have to buy it.......i like this one

    1. They gave Zed a passive bonus to his AD on W, changed some of the numbers on his Q, lowered the slow on E, and it looks like they shifted Zed's ultimate to do it's initial damage after the mark explodes.

      Delete
    2. OMG! I knew you cared about me! <3 I hope this doesnt change Zed to much because I played him already and I liked him personally. Anyway, good night Moo, will always continue to check this website everyday. Best website in universe

  15. Dragon Tamer Lulu! This has to be my favorite skin that Riot has put out recently.

    ReplyDelete
  16. That Darius' skin sucks, doesn't look any good. Norse King was quite better. Lulu's skin looks better in the splash than in game, but still cool, love the dragons.

    ReplyDelete
  17. Just a little typo because I'm a freak, on the last point about Zed, you put % of damage dealtH instead of just dealt XD

    ReplyDelete
  18. 25% passive AD for Zed? I think is too much, they are going to nerf that later on

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. He'll be Up if he didn't get that passive.

      Delete
    2. I thought he was supposed to be an assassin relying on positioning and deception to not die. Now he'll be able to build some tanky items and still hurt like a truck... 25%, the number scares me a little.

      Delete
  19. Wow, that Dragon Tamer Lulu is the best splash art ever! :D

    1. Idk about "ever" but its pretty nice...

    2. too bad the ingame model isn't anywhere as good :<

  20. i think the splash is better then the in game

    ReplyDelete
  21. What about that new Miss Fortube skin? :|

    ReplyDelete
  22. Moo, plz create a video new shockblade Zed!! :3

    ReplyDelete
  23. I think the biggest concern I have 'bout Dragon Trainer Lulu is that her splash looks much more colorful than the in-game model we've seen to date.
    The model is just a whack of brown, where-as the splash art gives you pink/purple/green - much like the colors one would 'expect' from Lulu.
    So my hope remains that they'll adjust the model colors to match the splash art colors - if they do, I'll throw money at em =3

    1. I'd be surprised if they released a Viktor skin before they fix his augments. Hopefully that is soon!

  27. Zed's passive now only deals 6% of their maximum hp in magic dmg.

    1. I didn't think they added new particles, only fixed the issue of it hitting.

      "Hey PBE players!

      A few days ago, we introduced a correction to Final Spark in PBE: the angle of the beam visual should more accurately match that of the actual spell, especially when fired beyond the edge of the map.

      If you're a Lux player, I encourage you to play her in PBE and share results here. Thanks!"

  32. Guys... what is the purpose of "first" comment.Some people really feel good doing that ? Wierd.

    On topic : Both skins are not what those champs needed. I mean... they don t suit them and their style very well in my opinion. They are well done, but not what i expected (some evil fire, ice with for lulu with nice effects, or voodoo lulu, and a barbarian, viking darius)

    ReplyDelete
  33. The Lulu skin dragon was not made to look scary or ferocious, the champion personality is cute, and riot got that right on the dot with pix.

  34. i checked out the zed skin and is the shadow not suppose to show? cuz it looked like there was no shadow

  35. Zed's w passive is an AD Rabadon's...
