Finally another animal champion besides Anivia that doesn't spend half of its time transforming.
I hope this one builds counter AP so I can use it against freaking Kassadin and Fizz -__-

I think Ao Shin will be another like Kog'Maw, Cho'Gath, Kha'Zix character, so he should be Ao'Shin. He looks like a jungler character to me, not so much an ADC or anything like that. His fire I imagine will be a lighter turquoise color? Without a doubt, this guy needs a Jade Dragon skin to compliment his dragon-like traits. To me I think it'll look sick. I am really liking the character creativity happening on here. I was no where near suspecting a Storm Dragon as a new character. Very cool. Keep up the good work, Riot!

Lol that could be said too. I was just saying that it /could/ have came from there. Not saying it did. But, I like that you brought that up aswell. Minotaur have been very popular creatures in games.

It's almost like it's a direct copy of Ao Kuang from Smite! (o wait it is)

highly doubtful. he appears to be an AP caster or some sort of support. Bruisers are typically melee focused and with hos this champ's spell concepts look its pretty doubtful, though Riot has thrown us curve balls before with melee AP champs such as Kassadin and Mordekaiser as well as ranged bruisers such as Jayce and Urgot.

Long story short, to me he looks like an AP caster, but until he is released onto the PBE we have no idea.
