surprised no one posted this yet.

since riot seems to be doing some new lore about freljord they went ahead and did a minor reveal on the new trundle, since they are (sadly) changing his lore. he's also getting a slightly reworked kit (similar to tarics slight rework), a new model and animations and particles and blah blah.

While old Trundle certainly had a unique narrative and visual design, we always felt he was disconnected from the rest of the world. This inhibited the number of stories we could tell with Trundle and, well, we want to tell stories about him. Trundle’s upcoming changes include... and a new story that ties Trundle to the brewing conflict in the Freljord.

anyway, here's new trundle doing his dance. they confirmed that he still walks hunched over with his hand, and hes also doing a stupid face with the dance in case anyone questions it.





as an added bonus, those who own trundle before his rework goes live will get his traditional skin, free of charge. gonna assume it also comes with his original voice, if they change it.

i like the new trundle because i just like ice and such

however i am sad that theyre going to change his lore because i think he has the best lore in the game, including his judgement, but hopefully whatever they change for him is going to be even better

EDIT: his splash art is out now and i love it cuz its so snowy

Only a art/model rework? That's it?


Can't see while he was the most in need for that one...


I mean there are still like ~10 champs who have the orginal beta splash art.

^ But thats the same with karma... She was right after Irelia? (I forgot) but they still redid everything for her, same with lux etc. I think they wanna keep some of the old esthetic, but not to much of it. eventually all the splash art will be changed... also I WANT A NEW MAP THAT IS COMPETITIVE DAMN IT ARAM MAPS ARE NOT COMPETITIVE :< GIVE ME MY ICE/LAVA MAN ALREADYYY
Thanks to everyone that has made me a sig!

a) theres a minor skill rework as well, similar to taric recent 'rework'
b) it fits the new lore being written

I assume his kit will remain the same with altered ability names. Like Pillar of Ice instead of Filth, stuff like that.

I like new Trundle visual wise, lepracy Trundle always irked me a bit, but I agree with Dill about his lore. His new lore could be good though. :D

Quoted:
Trundle’s upcoming changes include a gameplay update (more of a quality improvement than a rework – similar in scope to our Taric changes in 3.03)
