You gotta go at a certain move speed to get the new animation, getting a sprint boot will easily get you that number. I personally don't like Zed "Sprint" animation since it look kinda silly to me (and that its similar to the ninja from Naruto).


Uhm that's how ninja's run. Their arms are like that so they can run faster. However if you want to pace yourself, you run the normal way. And since he's a ninja, it makes sense.

In Naruto, yes. Anime isn't exactly known for a realistic approach to things though. In other words, no one actually runs that way, as it's entirely impractical, mostly from a balance perspective.

However, given that LoL isn't entirely realistic either and highly stylized in general, it's a fun animation, and that's all that matters.

That and it's ironic in a humorous way. That sort of running style is inefficient mostly due to lack of balance, and Zed is part of a dark order that opposes the teachings of balance practiced by Shen and his ilk.

I'm starting to get paranoid about his release price...
The champ sounds too good to be true in terms of aesthetics.
What are the chances he'll cost more than 975 RP and I won't be able to afford him...?


Of course his price will be 975. No one costs more than that and i expect it never happens. If you are really readind the forum you should know zed isnt that powerfull, and the nice appearance is because riot is working hard in the new champions to look better than the odd visual of a lot of old champions

Same thing was said before Kha'zix. Then his skin, despite not being full on legendary, got a whole new category of skin price created for it, which will now be used to price skins that are more detailed aesthetically than typical skins but less so than legendary skins.

Not far-fetched to consider that they might do the same with champions on release who have greater aesthetic qualities than all the other default champion skins available before.

Kha'zix skin get a bunch of new particle (or recolor how you look at it) sound for his spells, and voices which is pretty darn close to a legendary skin.

For some reason I've always gotten this weird feeling that Udyr is somehow inspired by Okami.

I think that run animation is Epic. Especially since i'm a fan of Naruto. Besides, no one cares whether its an optimal running position or not, its a game...

How fast do you have to be going? Is it just with steroids like ghost? I spent a whole game building PDs and had MS5 boots with a yomou's and got nothing but standard running Zed.
