Darius is lackluster at best, I still think his Base skin is his better one.

Also, please, don't like to us about what is extra skin work and what not, you say that Pixi is extra work? are you kidding me? that's part of lulu, it should be a given, what are you gonna do next? charge us extra for each new Oriana's ball?
dont give Hippalus Ideia

Darius skin is meh and 1350 for a skin is way too much.

You realize you already charge a ridiculous amount for cosmetic **** right? Don't increase it.

You realize they don't charge you anything at all to play this game right? The only thing you have to pay for is cosmetics.

I must say, as a Lulu fan I will likely be picking up a skin for her sometime this week.

It may not be DT, but that's not because of the price. It's because I've wanted Wicked since she came out.

Riot, most of these people don't realize that despite the game being free to play, you guys are a business. I understand that the price you charge for a skin reflects the amount of effort that went into creating said skin.

THAT SAID, The better idea may be a slight recoloring of the Lulu portion of this skin, as you did with the three skins for Xerath after the uproar on the forums. I'll second those on here who think it's a bit too drab for Lulu.

I think it's worth it's price. Don't change that part. Because if you do every time a skin comes out the forums will think you'll change it's price cheaper if they complain loudly enough.

Let the downvotes commence!

I really like the darius skin, but it's a bit odd for darius. (random)
Looks like hes jacked on mtn dew or something.

I thought 975 as regular price was already very expensive for such a thing as a single skin, but 1350 is a huge ripoff

I play a lot of Lulu; she is probably my second favorite champion to support with. I bought this skin on Day 1 and I have loved it every second. Good work Riot, Inc. My only complaint would be that I want to re-name Pix and the tooltips involving him. I want this dragon to be named Derpy.

Originally, this skin was going to be treated similarly to Lulu's other skins with the dragon version of Pix being a very simple character with only few utilitarian animations. However, as we further explored this version of Lulu, the team felt like we were missing an opportunity to breathe life into the character of Pix, which up until this point had a limited animation set. So, in our continuing mission to delight players and raise the quality of our skins, we took the time to really develop Pix into the charming and whimsical being that he was always meant to be. This included adding an entire new animation set to Pix, including attacks, emotes, run variants, and more. I tried to make this version of Pix a fitting companion for Lulu by appropriating some of the silly elements of Lulu's personality that make her so endearing.

This is the first time we’ve taken a secondary pet character in the game and really given it the full treatment. On top of that, the skin received an adorable new model and what are arguably some of the coolest particles in the game. Not only does this skin open up doors for similar treatment on future Lulu skins, but also provides insight into ways we could bring even more personality to other secondary "pet" characters in our game.

After all was said and done, we felt the value it brought to the characters of Lulu and Pix as a whole was above and beyond what players would expect from this skin. On behalf of the skins team, I hope you all enjoy the skin and all the hard work and love we put into it.
