Can we keep the new dog but with the old voice?

Either way, we need to talk...

I always thought of it more as a shillelagh. An Egyptian shillelagh.

His skirt looks weird. In the center image, it looks like it goes out, then down. I started at it for like, 10 min. before I figured out that it wasn't actually doing that. The skirt in general is just a bit busy.
Pharaoh and Dreadknight look dope though.

You're changing the voice?
THE VOICE?

THE BEAUTIFUL VOICE?

Oh this new voiceover has BIG shoes to fill.

Can we have voice packs that we can select independently of skins?

Do you at least have a clip of the new voice for us? You know, to help us decide whether or not to come to Riot HQ with torches and pitchforks?


For toasting marshmallows of course. We would want to throw a marshmallow party if it's good.


Also, I am now very glad Dreadknight got a visual update. Bought it cheap on sale forever ago for the sole sake that I wanted a skin and it was cheap and on sale :P But it looked like ****. Now it doesn't. Thanks

Sadly, as you mentioned Nasus’ original voice actor passed away some time ago.

We definitely hear the sentiment you voiced, and we’ve been very conscious of the community’s love (as well as our own) for Nasus’ original voiceover while working on his update.

The number of lines included in new champion voiceover has expanded significantly (from 16 to around 45 in Nasus’ case) since Nasus originally made his debut, but during the process of updating Nasus we’ve done everything possible to preserve the spirit of the original voiceover.
