You really think Riot would do something innovative? Not with their new "no idiot left behind" philosophy.

well it probably wont be his passive, but it will still rule. hey zileas, any chance nasus will be remade to also use souls, since that was his original concept waaaay back in the day?

Given that Renekton is fairly obviously melee and is "the Eater of Souls" I think it's a fair conclusion that his passive will be some sort of soul steal from minions upon killing them / being near to their death. These souls will then be the units for his resource system.

He'll likely also have a cleave ability and a transform on R.

It's a long shot but perhaps he'll have some ability which meshes with the river given that he is a crocodile.


Meshes with the river... Really dude? Considering that they are about to release a new main map that follows a lava theme...

Dammit Bobbay git' back in the house.

No. Just don't even bother.

It works but...well, it takes all the fun out of it, the whole great thing about being an evil genius is the ability to stick to scientific related evil plots, by "eating souls" you're pretty much saying "Hey guys, I'm just flippin' genres here, and thought you might like to join me."

And then, before you know it, you have paladin spiders and super soldiers from space trying to freeze you in carbonate with their stun sticks while they ride on cyber pony's from cloudville... And don't even get me started on the ninjas....

So when I say don't do it, I swear to GOD I mean it.

Also, practically, when taking over the world, eating everyone's soul generally leaves you with not that much to rule over...

Yeah thats the flaw with that theory :P

However I'm pretty sure Ezreal mentioned some sort of river related ability a long time ago. Also I wouldn't be that surprised if there was some sort of lava river in the new map.

Na. No soul eating. We've tried it in the past, it never works.

By referencing HoN you lose all credibility.

Sorry.

I hope he is nothing like Soulstealer from HoN. That dude is a super pain in the butt.

I think he referenced HoN because they have a champion that "eats souls" DERP...

Still, 'twas a HoN reference.

And thus, loses all credibility.
