Meddler, this guy is clearly in the SGU comic. Care to coment?

Was he in development even back then!?
Was he always gonna be a champion?
What made you deside to put the dragon in the SGU as a champion?
Is he evil? He is trying to take the temple's power so i assume he is evil?
What interaction will he have with Udyr? (http://forums.na.leagueoflegends.com/board/showthread.php?p=41356443#post41356443)

Ao Shin's one of those champion concepts that we've been considering for quite a while (initial art concepts for example started last year). Until recently though there were still some big outstanding questions, story and gameplay in particular, that we hadn't answered, so we weren't ready to go ahead with him as a champion. We're not ready to talk about a lot of his details yet, we definitely will once we can of course though.

Can you share a bit with us a bit of information about what role the dragon champion might fit into?

Hey all!

This is indeed concept art for an upcoming champion we're working on! Really excited about him, given this is the sort of concept we haven't explored that much yet, opportunity for some cool stuff as a result.

One thing to bear in mind though is that this is a really early preview - this champ's quite a way off. For those wondering this is also a different champion to the one CertainlyT's mentioned he's working on that's a couple of champion releases away.


I F*CKING KNEW THIS WOULD BE RELEASED FROM THE END OF THE UDYR COMIC! I SO KNEW lT!

I think it's a Watcher.


EDIT - Scratch that, he'll likely be released Chinese New Year 2014

Can you at least tell us his planned roles?

Should we be more alarmed that this guy posted someone's name, and, maybe, username?

So basically this means we will see him in 10 years given how slow champion releases have been lately. Care to comment on why you guys have been taking so long to release champions?

At the start of the reason I believe someone at Riot said they were shooting for 12-14 champions this year but at the current pace you it doesnt seem you will have anywhere near that number.
