If you looked at the author you should already know.....I have no clue.

But is this something worth discussing?

Warwick's character got completely changed.
Singed is next on the hit list.

I think we need to plan ahead a little for these changes.

Unless something as major as Warwick's change happens, I say just consider if the new lore bits make it sound like your portrayal isn't as accurate anymore. Rioters have said that the old lore is still canon, though Warwick's one makes it hard to consider the old stuff to still hold, so you only need to take a look at the new lore and old lore together to see if it warrants any change to your portrayal. That's my 2 cents.

Honestly, it's not the character, but his 'political' ties to the environment. Warwick has always been a murderous, and with little regard for morals (which probably was the reason his alchemist career was 'infamous'), and still is. Nothing in the new lore denies his knowledge of chemistry, which is somewhat suggested in the note about his crafty methods of capturing subjects.

His new lore also keeps his reputation aspect, although this one shifts to another field of expertise. Singed still collaborates with him, though, so that's another part that's there.

It's true, those are two very different stories; but the main character remains the same, and his personality is unchanged. Just one thing is needed to realize this; in the old story, Warwick was satisfied with the form Soraka 'cursed' him with, and in the new story, Warwick took on the transformation voluntarily. That is the most important moment of his lore, and the fact that his reactions to it are the same, makes it evident that the only thing that changed is the events, not the character.

His goals are different though. He isn't just out for vengeance, he NEEDS to kill her to stay 'alive'. Soraka's death wouldn't just be bragging now, it would save his mind. He also isn't a chemical genius. He may know his brews, but Singed is now the grandmaster. He knows all the tricks. Warwick's old character could chuckle a bit at Singed and compliment him on a crafty brew, but he always knew the trick. He had already found it.

HOWEVER, this is not the point. The point is that some of the character interactions have been royal warped by this and he should look into finding something to help us get through it. Warwick has taken one route, and that's fine, but I want to know if there is anything else we can do if someone's lore changes that dramatically.
