LoL Skin Viewer

Skins cost money. To make the best purchasing decision, we would want to see what the skin looks like in detail before purchasing it. Unfortunately, Riot's previews for champion skins simply aren't enough.

I found this link on the other day (posted by Baby Panda[Solomid]) that lets you not only look at all the released skins out there, but play with them as if they are digital action figures. The website is a Chinese LoL fansite, but all the champion and skin names are in English. Skins are frequently updated with the latest release.

  • All released RP skins for preview (including ones that are no longer available
  • Preview in 3-D
  • Rotate via dragging with mouse to any direction
  • Mouse Scroll-up/down to enlarge/shrink champion size
  • Additional champion stats & skill info (in Chinese) 

Good luck and have fun!

Noob Charts

Jooma, a member of the Solomid community, created several convenient charts for players who want to know the exact damage of "Ignite" and so on. The charts are free-for-distribution as long as proper credit is given.

Recent events and my new love :3

You guys all deserve a cookie for being so patient!

Recently I have been incredibly busy (like always but even more so) because the final examinations are only a few weeks away! Nonetheless, I will try to do my best to keep up with the postings. By the way, I will soon be blogging for the Solomid community if everything goes smoothly. The site is run by the top players in the League, known for its high-quality, high-ELO livestreams, and recently its guide system. I am really glad that I received this opportunity to share my knowledge and passion for blogging on Solomid. Don't worry guys, while I will be posting on a consistent basis for Solomid, this is my main blog and I will continue to update it in the future! Nonetheless, the first part of my planned mini-series, "The LoL Mindset", will debut on Solomid before making its way here. Again, do not worry, there are many other articles that I plan to release only on my blog ^^.

Now you are probably wondering, who is this new love that I found? No, I didn't find a girlfriend to mitigate my loneliness T_T. This new love that I found is a champion in LoL; you would know if you have read my in-game status updates recently. That's right, he is no other than Shaco - The Demon Jester! (No homo) I guess I am "cheating" on Anivia~
Sup Bros?
Why Shaco?

My collection of lovely Mages

I love Mages. They go in, release their load, and come out -exactly my style. There are many types of mages: bursty, bulky, and supporty. Generally speaking, I usually call a champion "mage" if it meets all three criteria: 1) AP/mana powered skills 2) naturally built mage style (e.g. not AP Master Yi) 3) not a tank. 

Pros and Cons of Mages
Pros: Bursts hard; utility; AOE damage (usually); good gankers/assassins
Cons: Fragile; Mana/CD reliant; need good team support; usually harder to play than other classes

I have a collection of mages that I play with the most. Here I will introduce each of them, see if they suit your style. I only have a limited amount of time and money so I didn't buy all the mages (sorry Ryze). I will talk about the mages I didn't buy in another post.

My favorite Pokemon mage. I played and fell in love with her since I was level 13. Packing 2 AOE slows, 1 mini-AOE stun, a map hack, and a self-revive, she is an awesome burst and utility champion that can turn the tide of the game. If she is fed, might as well be GG for the other team. Being one of the highest burst-damage mage and best utility character in the game, she is not very popular due to her high skill-cap fail-hard ratio. Just when she almost became FoTM, Riot steps in to nerf her, quelling all QQs and put her back in the loner zone. Today, the Ice Phoenix remains untouched by noobs. (My guide available, check "guides" section)

[cool stuff bro] League of Legends CHN Splash

This is the subsequent post of my "Chinese LoL Client" article ( Kaiokhen, one of the administrators of the Leaguecraft community, took the time to gather 96 (more in the future) Chinese LoL artworks and assembled them into an album. They are perfect for wallpapers. A preview is shown below:
