the only reason im NOT hooked is because sorceress lux is already the "witch" skin. i know you want a skin that kinda resembles a classic witch but it looks odd since that what sorceress lux is. hell if you wanted just put new animations on that skin and you have your witch.


And like steel legion lux is any different than her 2 military skins. To make it fair, she might as well have multiple witch skins since Riot cant think of anything else to give her.

At least various takes on witches and mages would suit her theme as a long range artillery spellcaster.

A lot - specifically, you're asking for a 1:1 transposal of an anime character who wears a dress and a Witch's Hat. Honestly, it's too similar to Sorceress Lux to make this make much sense at all.

Funnily enough, a fan created Witchcraft Lux as a custom skin and uploaded it. And guess what? Looks nothing like Sorceress (http://leaguecraft.com/skins/6198--crestfall-halloween-lux-spookycraft-.xhtml).

Yet, nobody has a problem adding a third military skin to her lineup, and on top of that, with a disgusting futuristic theme that doesn't match Lux nor even tap into her skin design potential whatsoever.

It's the timing.

3 gritty, grimdark, serious skins on Lux in a row is kind of tiresome. If there was something more lighthearted or magical between Imperial and Steel Legion, it wouldn't be nearly as poorly received as it has been.

I mean, look at it this way. If your favorite champion had a skin that explored a side of that champion you weren't too thrilled about, you'd be fine with it. Yeah. Sure. You just won't buy or use it. You have other skins or Classic that you enjoy. But then the next skin is the same sort of theme. And then, about a year after that, the next skin is also the same sort of theme.

Would you be annoyed about this?

Sure, Steel Legion has really amazing animations and particles, but it's the same gritty, serious Lux we've been seeing in her skins for the past 2 years. We kinda want something new and refreshing before we dive back into the gritty grimdark of the Demacian military.

And then they announce Steel Legion Lux, which is kinda the same as Commando and Imperial and undermines that exact comment you're quoting.

"Too similar to an existing skin" indeed. Read the OP and realize that there are ways to make a witch skin for Lux that are visually distinct from Sorceress.

1: Marisa is not an anime character shes a video game character from a danmaku hell game.

2: i disagree with this skin idea mainly for the fact that lux is already based on Marisa lorewise and some of her skills. (Final spark = Master spark) "ordinary light magician" the spell thief skin is just a reference to "spell card captured" from the Touhou games.

3: she needs something different.

But you're okay with her getting her third gritty serious military-themed skin in a row?

that isn't what this thread is about i dont really agree with a 3rd military skin for her either i just dont think another witch outfit is needed. there are better idea's out there. and everything you suggested for particle changes would be a direct rip-off of ZUN's and he's already really strict when it comes to copywrights.
