However, as much as I like this concept design I only have one thing to criticize: why does a fish lady have to bear so much cleavage? I mean, I get it she's a mermaid 'n all, but I'd prefer seeing her in an armor shell bikini top than having her shirt? scales? what have you seemingly ripped open to bare her chest for some cleavage. I mean, we have plenty of cleavage bearing champs already, so I suppose I'd like to see a new female champion whose design isn't so breast-bearing, but that's just my opinion.



Mermaids are supposed to be seductive, luring sailors and seducing them. They are similar to Sirens in Greek Mythology who lured sailors to their deaths mostly.

In fact, traditionally a mermaid wouldn't have anything on top. So an entire armored mermaid wouldn't make sense, she'd just be a fish with arms and a head.

With the new jungle change I am wondering if an aggressive support will become outdated because ganks will be coming later.

She will be, but the difference between a support character (as a concept) and something like Zyra is defined by these differences.


so is it just her offensive kit that is skill shot oriented or is her support abilities too like say lux's shield.

First Elise, then the Nidalee visual update and now our new support is a watermage named Nami?

It's as if all my League-related prayers are being answered.

hooray, a female "monster" that isn't just the same female frame with a different costume.

No, I hate dedicated healers and no-gameplay sustain, not healing.

No matter how many times we talk about this... ;p

I'm aware, Ahri being based on a Korean Gumiho is in the same boat (haha fish puns), but the fact still remains that female characters that show off their breasts are a really tiring and unoriginal design.
