Got questions? I've got answers!

Posted on at 12:49 AM by Moobeat

 Over the past few months, I have gotten a handful questions in comments here and there. I typically address them in the comment box but I thought a few of them would be interesting enough to share. Combine this with little things friends and fellow summoners ask from time to time and wallah!

On a side note, I'll be out of town for two days and won't be returning until late Monday night. I hope this special post satisfies your cravings until then.

Q: Whats your LoL user name?
A: Moobeat and I play on the US realms.

 Q: Do cool down reduction items with the same % stack? They say Unique passive yet I see players running around with things like Ionian Boots and Glacial shroud.
A: Yes, as long as it isn't two of the SAME item, it will stack. Two Kindle Gems (10%) will not stack, but a  Stinger (10%)  and a Kindle Gem (10%) will stack.

Bonus tip! CDR caps at 40% reduction so plan masteries, runes, and items accordingly!

 Q: How do you the King Rammus skin? I can see it on the champion selection screen but its not in the store and doesn't seem to be any sort of holiday related sin.
 A: The King Rammus skin released as a special thank you for closed Beta testers. If you account was created before 10/22/09, Rammus and this delicious skin become unlocked for you. Here is a red post from way way back.

Q: I saw a Jax running around the other day with a brown staff and a samurai hat on. Where is that skin from?
A: That would be PAX Jax, a nod to the Card Board Tube Samurai character from the Penny Arcade comics. The skin handed, via a redeemable code card, out to patrons of the Penny Arcade Expo. PAX East just ended a few weeks ago, so the influx of new codes being redeemed would likely be the reason you're seeing them float around. You can actually pick up a copy via Ebay pretty easily at the moment. It's going to run you about $25 though.

Q: Why does Jax fight with a lamp post?

A: Jax amassed such a devastating win streak after joining the league that officials put official restrictions on him. In response, Jax limited himself to fighting with only a brass lamppost.
"Jax proved himself to be an immediate terror in the Fields of Justice. The self-proclaimed Armsmaster of the League rattled off a streak of consecutive wins that to this day has not been matched. A number of summoners in the League grew concerned that the perceived objectivity of the League of Legends would be questioned by the presence of an unknown fighter who was unbeatable. For this reason, the new leader of the League (following Reginald Ashram's disappearance) , High Councilor Heyward Relivash, created special restrictions for Jax to fight under. This was something the League had never done before, and something which has never been done since. The burly fighter responded by imposing his own special conditions; as a means of protest, he permitted himself to fight using only a brass lamppost. Neither the League's sanctions nor his own has affected his winning ways. The League has since rescinded its sanctions, but Jax has not; he fights and fights well with his trusty brass lamppost. "

Q: Whats up with the goggles on that guys face? ( Referencing Master Yi )
A: Luckily enough, there was a red post by RiotBabagahnoosh, Lead Creative Designer, about this very topic. Long story short, they were given to him by fellow champion Heimerdinger and gives him increased visual prowess.
"OK, the goggles. Here we go:

The goggles Master Yi wears are a techmaturgical device that was gifted to the champion by Piltover's own Hermerdinger, the Revered Inventor. Master Yi first used these goggles when defending his homeland from Noxus invaders in the time after the League has just formed and before Ionia had affiliated itself with the League. The goggles are fitted specifically for Master Yi; while someone else may wear them, they won't receive anywhere near the same benefit as he does himself.

The one-of-a-kind goggles, known as the Seven Lenses of Insight, allow Master Yi to see across a wider range of the spectrum than normal people see. They also give him abilities not dissimilar to that of real world binoculars and telescopes. The goggles are synced to Yi's own magical resonance, allowing him to adjust settings without the use of his hands. He simply thinks what he needs, and the goggles act accordingly.

This concludes the first installment of my Q&A. Got more questions? Toss me an email here or drop your questions in the comment section. As an added bonus, enjoy this Teemo comic by omnibus.

  21. @Bulwyf
    No, DoTA, the game that LoL is based on was a custom map for WC3. LoL utilizes an art style very similar to that

    I never did play DoTA much, despite vigorously playing custom maps on WC3
