Snowdown is Coming!Snowdown is right around the corner! Starting on December 10th and lasting through early January, we'll have a sleigh full of new content, returning legacy skins, promotions, and sales!
LOOK OUT! IT’S SNOWDOWN!
BEGINNING DECEMBER 10
A chill in the air; A handful of ice
A present for you; How lovely, how nice!
It’s round and it’s cold; Packed tight and frozen
A face full of frost for the unlucky chosen
The battle starts now; Put some cold in your fist
Snowdown arrives with an aerial twist
So throw on some gloves and step into the sun
This Snowdown’s about snowballs and friends having fun!

These little guys are feeling the cold and bundling up before hitting the battlefield. Snowdown minions slide into lane starting December 10. Spend some time with these frost-ready friends before they shed their cold weather gear once this patch ends.
SNOWBALL FIGHT12/10 - 1/7Show your friends you love them with a snowball to the face! You can throw four new Legacy Snowball icons at your pals for 100 IP each all through Snowdown. Each time you toss a Snowball icon, whoever it hits will get to keep one of the four randomly selected icons and rack up a one-win IP boost!
THE LEGEND OF THE PORO KING RETURNS!ALL THROUGH SNOWDOWNA grand decree from his eminence, the Poro King:"GREETINGS, I RETURN."The Poro King has spoken!Let it be known!
PORO KING 101
The poros are back and they’re joining your side in Legend of the Poro King. Jumping into a match, you’ll see two poro pals flanking you in combat. Each one grants a summoner spell that will help you call forth and aid the majestic Poro King!
The Poro King is a mega-classy super minion that heals your team, regenerates mana, and deals AoE damage while handing out royal beatdowns to enemy towers on the Howling Abyss. Summon the mighty Poro King by landing Poro Toss ten times. The King will serve as a sieging dynamo for you until he is killed by the enemy team in a regicide most foul.
Activate Poro Toss once to toss your teeny poro pal across the map. If the lil’ fella hits a target, trigger Poro Toss again to Poro Dash, which will send you soaring towards an unlucky enemy. If your team lands ten Poro Tosses, his excellence the Poro King will plop down and begin his royal wreckery.
TO THE KING
When the Poro King hits Howling Abyss, activate To the King! to transform into one of the King’s loyal (fluffy) subjects and fly to his majestic side.
PORO ICONS (AND MORE)Pick up a poro icon for 250 RP and grab a special skin for your poro pals in Legend of the Poro King for a limited time. To trick out your poros, follow these handy steps:
- Buy any poro icon
- Equip your new icon before launching into a Legend of the Poro King match
- Enjoy the skins worn by your two poro buddies in Legend of the Poro King

Q: Can I send my friend all four Snowball icons?
A: Yes. You can send them up to all four icons as long as they don’t own them already.
Q: Can I buy myself Snowball icons?
A: You cannot buy yourself Snowball icons.

A: Yes, but we’ve raised the limit to 20 gifts per day for the duration of Snowdown.

CAUTION- SNOWSTORM SALE INCOMINGIn addition to ALL of the Snowdown legacy skins returning to the shop, over 100 legacy skins are also returning to the shop! They'll be on sale for full price as well as daily one-day legacy sales between December 16th through January 7th!
Here's Popstar Urf with more information:
URGENT - SNOWDOWN WEATHER MESSAGE
… A Snowstorm sale is forecasted to bring one-day Legacy sales everyday all through Snowdown...Details below...
*HAZARD TYPE… Daily Legacy skin sales
CONDITIONS… Six different Legacy skins will go on sale everyday, starting December 16 until January 7 at 23:59 PST.
Experts are recommending bringing all poros indoor while the Snowdown Snowstorm sale is active to prevent any confusion between massive amounts of snow and massive amounts of fluff.
Note: Challenger Ahri erroneously appeared in a previous version of this article. We apologize for the confusion but she will not be participating in this sale. She will however be available in January for the launch of the 2016 Season."
Red PostsFor anyone who may be concerned, WizardCrab confirmed on reddit that all the legacy Snowdown skins will be available individually in addition to the bundles
 "All past Snowdown skins will be available as well. The top section only features the Snow Day skins because that's the theme this year :)"
 "Winter Wonder Orianna will be available with all of the other Legacy Snowdown skins at the beginning of the event - individually and in a bundle."
As for the Legendary Snowball promotion and if skins like Primetime Draven and Surprise Party Fiddlesticks will trigger the free mystery gift, he noted:
"Yes. They're Legendary. With all the rights and benefits conferred thereby."As for if Alien Invader Heimerdinger and The Magnificent Twisted Fate (legacy 1820 skins going on sale for 910 during the promotion) will trigger the Legendary Snowball mystery gift, he noted:
"I guess they do! Probably shouldn't have overlapped those sales with Legendary Snowball - mistake on my part, benefit on yours I suppose.
¯\_(ツ)_/¯"For players who already own a lot of content, WizardCrab noted only one skin is required for the Snowball Legendary promotion:
"you'll only need 1 available skin to get one from the Snowball Legendary promotion. That being said if you already own every skin available to you based on your champ pool, Snowball Legendary will not give you any additional benefit besides the Legendary skin you purchased."
WizardCrab also confirmed the Snowstorm legacy skins will also remain in the shop between December 16th and January 7th in addition to the daily sales!
" Full price the whole duration until 1/7, except the 1 day that each goes on sale for 50%."
DontHassleDaHoff also stepped in to comment on the personalized Snowdown shop offers:
"Hey all - I saw some recurring questions so I wanted to clear this up.
Your Snowdown Shop is a new limited-opportunity sale we’re offering this holiday season. Each of you will receive six unique deals. Skins we’ve made available for Your Snowdown Shop are more than 3 months old but do not include Legendary, Ultimate or Limited skins. (Don’t worry you shouldn’t get anything that’s already in your inventory). We hope you really like the deals offered to you!
Offers will be available from 12/16 - 12/30!"WizardCrab reiterated that they will not include legendary or ultimate skins, noting:
"No, they won't be. Sorry for the confusion."
