Champion & Skin Sale: Dead Man’s Party
Welcome, stranger, to the Shadow Isles. Don’t be afraid: I know you mortals say this place chills your blood, but tonight, that’s just the dry ice. You see, in honor of the renewed interest in our haunting home, I’m hosting an informal gathering. You might even call it a, yes, dead man’s party.

Don’t run away! Those soft wisps you perceive around you are just some incorporeal guests arriving. Take care with what you say; just because they’re dead doesn’t mean they don’t have feelings.

In the distance, three distinctly solid silhouettes materialize out of the blanketing mist and begin striding toward Yorick.

Now the festivities are officially underway. Here, take this lantern and go welcome our latest trio of partygoers. I think you’ll find they’re just dying to meet you.

  • For Maokai, coming here is almost a family reunion, being surrounded by so many spirited treants. 395 RP
  • And with that Totemic Maokai attire, it appears that tonight he wishes to invoke some shamanic ritual to commune with them once more. 260 RP

  • Hecarim appears menacing, but he has helped me with party preparations for many a night. His immense strength and broad back are just perfect for hauling heavy logs and stones for my bonfires. 487 RP
  • But on this night, his air is more serious. As Reaper Hecarim, harvester of innocent souls, he is a symbol for the finality of death. Poised to snatch unsuspecting spirits away from their warm-blooded lives, he offers them a new beginning in death. 487 RP

  • Karthus, my dear friend! It has been far too long since you graced my graveyard. How many champions have fallen to your death’s song upon the fields? 487 RP
  • Ah, I see you are garbed in your ritual Grim Reaper Karthus robe, all the better for the night’s activities. That scythe is a magnificent piece of craftsmanship—so brutally sharp. I wouldn’t want my soul separated with that crescent blade. 487 RP

Come, everyone, let us all assemble. That includes you, my acquaintance. And may I compliment your attire? You’d make a splendid corpse. We will be celebrating from October 19 to October 22, and we would like to give you a proper welcome.

Suddenly, a small sapling runs through your legs and trips you. As you stumble back, Hecarim charges, pinning you under an immense iron-shod hoof. Your last glimpse is of Karthus, his evil grin illuminated by Yorick’s swinging lantern, as defiling energy swirls around him. His scythe sings through the air as it descends…

In the Shadow Isles, death is just the beginning. Welcome, new friend.

The Skin Sale Checklist (Post Update for 10/18/2012)
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 May 1st 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.

■ May 01: Frostblade Irelia (975 RP), Rune Wars Renekton (975 RP).
■ May 08: Blight Crystal Varus (975 RP).
■ May 23: Lord Darius (975 RP), Blackthorn Morgana (975 RP), Tyrant Swain (975 RP).
■ May 28: Sad Robot Amumu (975 RP), Darkflame Shyvana (975 RP).
■ May 30: Glaive Warrior Pantheon (975 RP).
■ June 06: Soul Reaver Draven (975 RP).
■ July 07: Full Metal Jayce (975 RP).
■ July 09: Panda Teemo, (975 RP), Augmented Singed (975 RP).
■ July 11: Glacial Malphite (975 RP), Foxfire Ahri (975 RP).
■ July 13: Scorched Earth Xerath (975 RP), Infernal Alistar (975 RP).
■ July 19: Mythic Cassiopeia (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).

Wanna know how that new Teemo skin looks in-game? Click here. :p

How to get a Champ's skin (w/screenshots) by EmissaryShadow.
EncasedShadow (at one point, a Riot employee himself) started this thread listing all champion skins, links to their in-game screenshots, and availability of the skins, as well as how they may be acquired. He currently keeps updating the thread via his alternate account, EmmisaryShadow. :)

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 take #2 by Aestrivex.
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.
Aestrivex is currently updating the thread regarding past Champion sales (which was first made by Eat Orange Be K), and has been doing a good job at keeping it up-to-date. Wait a minute... If Eat Orange got replaced by Aestrivex, does that mean I'll be replaced soon? :eek:

Champion Sales Thread by Woogan.
Woogan has gone ahead and created a Champion sales history thread on the EUW server. In case Aestrivex is not updating his thread, Woogan may be able to help out.
At least, that's the way it's supposed to be, right? :rolleyes:

Skin Sales Super-Thread by Coreporeal.
Have you ever looked at a skin sale and wondered, "Has my favorite champion skin ever gone on sale?"
Well, my Skin Sale Super-Thread may just answer that question, as it contains an extensive list of past skin sales, so you may formulate an idea as to when it may just go back on sale again. :o

All Skin Sales List by TheReap3r.
Want a little European flavor added to your search for your favorite skin's past sales? Moving to the EU servers and don't want to deal with the NA servers in any way, shape, or form? TheReap3r's got you covered in his thread, which follows a similar principle as mine, only that it's found in EU West forums.
But please, don't leave our server. We'll miss you! :(

Institute of War: The Chamber of Antiquity - (Lore Archives & Other Literary Works) by Sylph.
Sylph has put great effort into amassing a gargantuan mega-thread dedicated to any and all literal works pertaining to League of Legends; Champions, lore, judgements, and much, much more.
Please visit his thread and look around: The world of Runeterra awaits you...

...Okay, looks like it might take a while for new lore to develop. :mad:

TheEnygma 10-18-2012 04:02 PM

once people see Zombie Brand, I think they'd wish he was on sale instead

AllTimeLoww 10-18-2012 04:03 PM

Might get Reaper Hecarim if Headless Hecarim isn't limited edition - making the Shadow Isles skins permanent drops their value significantly tbh.

Trixie 10-18-2012 04:04 PM

Selling skins for someone who is about to get a new skin.


CannibalMoose 10-18-2012 04:04 PM

Maokai and Hecarim are getting new skins for Halloween and everyone knows it, why encourage people to buy older ones?

Everyone saving their RP for Halloween skins, so I doubt this sale is gonna be anywhere close to successful.

Mayau 10-18-2012 04:04 PM
