Mad Scientist Ziggs Puts Lab Assistants on Sale
Hi summoners! Hexplosives are serious business in my lab and experimentation breeds innovation! Yee-haw! The best experiments prioritize maximum explosive efficiency above careful planning, so detonation directionality proves unpredictable in most cases. Kaboom! The Hexplosives Safety Administration (HSA) fails to realize that combustible entropic forces can only exist in periculous ecosystems (explosions first, questions later, right?) and have mandated that a lab assistant be present at my facility.

I must now endeavor to find a suitable protégé with the patience for my impatience and affection for homogenizing hexplosives. Mmmmyah! Unfortunately, all trial assistants thus far failed to effectively produce volatile mixtures and I like my assistants like I like my bombs: about to explode. So, I’m now offering them at a discount for your mad lab efforts. This sale’s the bomb! Bwahaha! Too bad they couldn’t make any.

  • Corki isn’t the brightest bombardier in the hangar and parked his R.O.F.L. Copter in my spot. 487 RP
  • Sejuani’s silly boar contaminates my percolating chemical combustibles and knocks over my expensive equipment. 487 RP
  • Jarvan IV refuses to forego his armor for regulation laboratory safety gear and I’m far too busy to deal with this liability. 487 RP

  • Subterranean Nautilus tries to execute delicate laboratory procedures using a mining drill. 487 RP
  • Warmonger Sion believes axes trump bombs, but apparently he’s never seen my hexplosive range. 487 RP
  • Ravager Nocturne keeps turning out the lights causing electronic malfunctions that cause unwelcome chemical stability. 260 RP

If you don’t take them, I’m planning on using them all for extended hexplosive testing. They’ll be available from August 14 until August 17. Then they’re gonna blow this joint. Hahaha!

Why put Ziggs as a spokesperson?
Are you guys aware of how much hate the guy generated by having him in back-to-back-to-back sales?

Oh. Maybe that's why.


The Skin Sale Checklist (Post Update for 8/13/2012)
Originally Created by Shingo Monster.
Edited and Modified by Coreporeal.

This post has been created to inform potential skin buyers of the possibility of recently released skins that may be featured in an upcoming sale. Newly released skins may go on sale as early as three months after public release; however, this is all subject to change. With the exception of Limited-Edition and Legendary-status skins, every skin released before Feb. 20th has received a sale prior to the latest skin sale announcement, or has been placed in the "unofficial" skin sale Blacklist. The next sale may contain at least 1 skin from the list below.

■ Feb. 20: Dark Crystal Ryze (975 RP).
■ Feb. 29: Royal Guard Fiora (975 RP), Nightraven Fiora (975 RP), Bladecraft Orianna (975 RP).
■ Mar. 02: Vandal Gragas (975 RP).
■ Mar. 05: Battlecast Urgot (975 RP).
■ Mar. 20: Bittersweet Lulu (975 RP), Wicked Lulu (975 RP).
■ Mar. 23: Jurassic Kog'Maw (975 RP).
■ Apr. 01: Fisherman Fizz (975 RP).
■ Apr. 02: Mafia Graves (975 RP).
■ Apr. 06: Battle Bunny Riven (975 RP).
■ Apr. 18: Blood Knight Hecarim (975 RP), Reaper Hecarim (975 RP), Warlord Shen (975 RP).
■ May 01: Frostblade Irelia (975 RP), Rune Wars Renekton (975 RP).
■ May 08: Blight Crystal Varus (975 RP).

All skins not listed here have been placed on sale before, are currently on sale now or have just been announced to be going on sale in a couple of days. The only exceptions to these rules are either Limited-Edition or Legendary-status skins. "Blacklisted" skins are still eligible for skin sales.
With this in mind, it is advisable that you don't buy these skins unless you really want them NOW. (If that's the case, don't complain if you bought it and it happens to go on sale shortly afterwards).

Champion Rotation Info Thread by MistressHel.
Like a new skin... for a champion you've never played before? Wish you could test said champ before committing to a purchase? You could try it out when that champ gets placed in the free-week rotation.
Well, when will that happen, if it hasn't already? For that question, MistressHel's "Champion Rotation Info Thread" might have just the answer you seek. And if it doesn't, it may give you an idea as to when it might go into the free-week rotation.
Who knows? It couldn't hurt to look, now could it? ;)

Champion Sales History and FAQ by Eat Orange Be K.
Skins are always nice, but they can't be bought without purchasing the champion first. But what happens when that Champion you want costs a little too much in IP? An option is to wait for its RP sale.
Eat Orange Be K has made a list of past Champion sales, as well as a general FAQ section that aims to answer questions and misconceptions that may arise during Champion sales.
Please remember, though, he's a little "forgetful", so give him a reminder on updates every once in a while. :mad:

Champion Sales Thread by Woogan.
Be K not updating his thread fast enough? Woogan has gone ahead and done that for you on the EUW server. No, he didn't steal his post, he's just making it easier for others to see what champs have gone on sale, and when. Is that too much to ask for? :rolleyes:
