My post had a legitimate suggestion, Runaan! Come on! You could do it in your spare time, just for me.

Who gave her the power to delete posts, anyway?

Was that really Warwick's wife he brought to Soraka, or some random person he captured and killed?

Now he seeks the blood of Soraka to stabilize his transformation before his mind gives way to the feral urges of the beast.
He doesn't want to go back to being human dude. Just to stabilize it so he's still got his mind and not one of a random wolf relying on animal instincts and his new insane amount of hunger and thirst. Did you read all of the new lore. D:

Also, <3 you Runaan. He seems more evil now. More manly.

Or you could've even read the last page in Runaan's post.

Warwick doesn't want to become human again--he just doesn't want to become a mindless beast.

question: Why did you release these Lore without giving Singed's new lore?

This was explained earlier in the thread. The woman was a random Ionian woman.

This story between Soraka and Warwick is meant to set the stage for more interaction with the whole of Valoran, not point to a singular resolution.
Is this all part of the Riot lore department's big plan in making the lore more intuitive? As in Will we ACTUALLY see these types of interactions happen at some point in the future? If so I can't wait to see how Xerath's lore develops (he's my favorite, especially his League Judgement )

With how good he was at getting his victims he probably knew EXACTLY how it was going to turn out, thus he had no fear of actually dying. He probably just picked a fight with a group of random people.

Well, there's a TON of room for development. A lot. Some insight from players would seem awesome to me.
