In my opinion the original Kayle skin looks better. The color choice is flawless, and the animations are superior. Original Kayle can make fire dance all over the lane, but the legendary one cannot. Sure, legendary Kayle's sword lights up, and it swings in two different directions, but that's not enough to make it "legendary."

I mean, it's kind of like if a popular musician released a hit song but then released an average quality song right after... In comparison to the popular song, the average one will look like it's less than average. The same kind of mentality works on these skins... If the original skin looks amazing, then the legendary one has to, by default, look better. In this case, the criteria isn't met, and that's why the skin is getting flamed so much.

I'd really love to buy a legendary kayle skin, but i'm not going to buy this one.

Note: I am not stating that the designers at Riot did not spend enough time and energy making this skin. I'm sure they did. However, I feel that the energy that was put into this project was slightly misdirected, and could have produced a better product.

She needs a little more. Her ult's particle effects look way too similar to her standard ult. I suggest a blue hexagonal shield that gradually turns red as its duration runs out. Her recall needs launch particles on her wings during the last 2.5 seconds of recall, similar to how a a spaceship ignites but doesn't lift off until about 10 seconds later. Here you can use blue or yellow trails, maybe an explosion on the ground when she lifts off.

My only gripe is how changing joke animations and such make it a legendary skin. I would much rather have some visual effect that is active while using my champion.
