I think he could use more lines, and maybe make his effects more... clownish. I honestly like the Q smoke effect. The color is nice, and I like the animation.

Why do you say that? By the current trends, do we just mean Sivir and Nasus?

Garen and Ashe I know for a fact had the same voice actors return.

Whenever Shaco uses Hallicinate, him and his illusion should have their own dances, jokes and taunts.

He's potentially high-ish on the list as Design, Creative, and Art agree that he's a good opportunity. No idea when we'd work on him, there's nothing officially slated. Some ideas I have heard floating around was actually hinting that there's something behind his mask. No idea what that'd be. Demon, deformed monster, another mask, something other than his current straight up clown face. We can probably find something unique that he has in him already and dial it up a bit.

We're certainly open to ideas.
Despite my harsh words for Riot and their design choices currently, I have complete faith in you and your work, Parrot.
Don't ever change.


With that said, the concept of a mask sounds pretty damn cool. And the possibility of each skin having a distinctly different mask sounds amazing.

- Classic and Royal Shaco could have the obvious jester theme

- Masked and Workshop Shaco could keep their current ones

- Asylum Shaco could have a mask reminiscent of Hannibal Lecter's iconic mask from Silence of the Lambs

- Nutcracko could have mask more resembling the traditional nutcrackers the theme is from

The possibilities could be great.

Please i beg you mr stylus. Please dont ever change his dance. I think his dance has become a part of his identity now. He's supposed to be this crazy maniac and I think his current dance fits perfectly well with his design

The bold is what makes Shaco so great.

Just read his lore again.

part of what makes Shaco great is NOONE knows what or who he is.

And on top of that he shows up from who knows where to kill who knows who. That's part of what makes him so horrifying.

There's just something great about a cartoonish jester who is anything but cartoonish. I want to say that's what makes some incarnations of The Joker great.

Goofy at first glance. But the moment he starts talking you start to chill up.

I think his clown mask should stay. There's nothing more creepy than a demented clown. That's some people's worst fear. To take away the clown face...with that creepy smile...you'd be pulling a Trundle.
