Probably because its an old skin. Old skins are basically just recolors.


Basically this. Malz came out shortly after I started playing LoL and looong before I joined Riot. I can't speak from experience, but back then particle swaps were rare enough that recoloring every ability for a launch skin probably would have been insanity. Just goes to show how far we've come, eh? :]

(As an aside, I personally don't think the yellow would look very good anyway.)

I think you're right. It's my favorite Malzahar skin. I decided to buy it when I realized that Malz is my new favorite mid, and I wouldn't change a thing. I like the contrast of his bright outfit to the darker magic he wields.

In his splash art he has yellow magic/sand in his hands but in-game his abilities are still purple.

So I'm guessing y'all wont re-do this skin like you did with Amethyst Ashe?
