i remember when ghost nocturne came out and everyone was upset that his trail was just pitch black like classic nocturnes, so they replaced the trail with the new spooky ghost one.
same with xerath, and all his skins were blue on the inside and riot changed them to match the skin.


now, i'm not referring to legacy skins (i hardly see them for a reason) but there are imo some skins that could use a little touch up.

examples:
  • pink taric: grimdark taric has red particles for all his spells, yet pink taric still has blue particles. now its a known fact that pink tarics play 50% better then regular/grimdark tarics, but if the particles were pink he would do 100% better than non-pink tarics.
  • pantheon's passive: his perseus skin, when the passive is up, still has the little orange shields surrounding him. now, i havnt seen any other pantheon skins and what not, but shouldn't they have their different shields floating around them? perseus panth's is just terrible to look at, because it doesn't fit the rest of his color scheme.
  • i'm sure there are others but i can't really think of any at the moment. will get back to you.

It seems like I'm one of the few who barely notice these things...

..The legendary TF skin is actually...Well a skin that has nothing different except the way it looks. Particles/Ulti/etc are the exact same as any other skin. And it's "legendary" 1820 in price....Or last I checked it didnt have anything special.

Yeah, the TF "legendary skin" needs a rework really bad. I know so many people who got suckered into buying it, thinking it was a cool legendary skin only to realize it was just a poorly done reskin. Scum bag riot.

The General Wukong skin looks faded out. He doesn't have that nice full brown as he does in is classic skin.

I think this was true with Anivia's Bird of Prey skin as well.

Some champs just lack skins as well....like Nidalee! I kind of hate how they discontinue non-holiday skins for a bunch of champions but still keep a ton different skins for only a few champs. ( Teemo, [[Twisted Fate, Veigar) But it's probably some behind-the-scenes sales ratio thing...=(

If you felt I contributed and stuff, can I have a (+1 Rep =3)?

*imagines Magnificent Twisted Fate's new voice being this awesome deep cockney british accent that actually sounds like a magician* *if only* At least I didn't buy it!

I think there's a ton of these, but I don't feel like thinking of them now. XD Is the idea if they're 975RP they should have different particles and not just be a reskin?
Thanks to Minho for my sig!

it also changes the trident and gives him armor along with similar changes to the shark. fizz however doesn't really need new particles on his skins. the only thing tundra fizz does is dress him, change the trident and the shark. does that need all new particles too?
