or I should say Mecha Nocturne vs Mecha Kha'Zix?

I watched unofficial skin spotlight, checked this skin on PBE and even read mass of comments and I'm really wondering if Mecha/Eternum Nocturne should be priced as 1820RP as pure legendary skin....

let's compare both skins:

well those skins are quite similar with few exceptions... so imho new Nocturne skin should be priced as 1350 even if he is slightly upgraded version of mecha kha'zix. Also last legendary skin was also robotic/mecha related = Battlecast Prime Cho'Gath. Riot lost their touch in doing original legendary skins and now we will have only series of sci-fi robotic skins?

I would totally agree for 1820 or even 3250 (1625 discount for 1st four days) IF:
a) he will also have changed animation for his ultimate dash => distortion/blur around him other cool effect while he is "flying"/dashing to his target
b) darknessssssssss returned to his ultimate quote => come on riot? two of his ult quote are boring roars?
c) his blades should be bigger/longer a bit => compared to the other skins they are so short
d) umbra blades receive even small visual effect
e) if someone buy this skin he will receive badass summoner icon at least OR/AND summoner profile banner

ALSO!
RIOT Y U NO DO EPIC TRAILER AND THEME SONG FOR THIS SKIN IF IT'S SUPPOSE TO BE LEGENDARY!? :O

TL : DR
IMHO new Nocturne skin should cost 1350 RP unless RIOT will improve it more and add little bonus in form of icon/banner for everyone who buy it

The Nocturne skin is standard Legendary affair, so I don't see the problem. New voices, etc.


Also, only themes should have icons/banners.

You just made a lot of comparisons showing why it's better than mecha Kha'Zix so why do you ask it to be 1350 after that?
Also you can also compare it to Battlecast Cho'gath if you are going to make comparisons for the price

HAVE YOU NOT SEEN THE NEW PARTICLES/EFFECTS AND VOICES?. but seriously, this is legendary tier. riot is just releasing a lot more quality skins that are 975/1350rp, so it seems that the legendary quality is going down

This might be the my paranoia talking, but whenever I see these threads it makes me wonder if the op is a riot smurf trying to setup the price to be whatever they want.

Sci-fi robots sell really well.

So kay.

And yeah, the skin is only worth around 1350 since the bottom part is wayyyyy too ugly.

Well tbh i want to agree with you that they should put a little more work on the skin to give it the Legendary status. One year ago i would have agreed with a legendary skin like this, hell i would have payd 3250 for it. But since the new skin pricing they should put a little extra in legendary skins. Like a summonner icon? Or something else, i really dont care what it is.

But it doesnt really matter, because i (and many others) will still open my wallet and buy it.
The Percentage that has the balls to really boycot skins ect. is just 2 damn small so its not worth the time.

NuNu bot = 1820
Battlecast Urgot = 975 (wow I'm "shocked" that's so low priced)
Battlecast Prime Cho'gath = 1820
Mecha Kha'Zix = 1350
and now
Eternum Nocturne = 1820?
+ almost robots or let's call it future/sci-fi
Full Metal Jayce = 975
Pulsefire Ezreal = 3250
+ incoming
Battlecast Skarner = ?
Battlecast Kogmaw = ?
Battlecast Anivia = ?


what the **** riot? what's with this robot sudden fetish and their uber crazy/sick prices for most of those skins?

and that's the problem... like mindless kinds, they take and agree with everything riot will give or drastically change (for example Dark Valk Diana)
