Not that anyone really cares about opinions anymore, but I just don't like this character.
Well, I respect your opinion but I have 2 things to say that I hope to agree on.

1) Not everyone has to like the same champs. Heck, some of the champs I despise the most are played by my brother and my cousin, yet we all know this and have accepted this long ago and thus we have no problems.

2) I think his design is actually pretty spot on. Yes when looked at next to someone like Garen he doesn't fit, but when you think about it he isn't supposed to fit next to Garen. Why is this? He is Ionian and thus as an Ionian style. Next to Master Yi, Irelia and SG Udyr he looks right at home, at least that is my opinion. Just like how a Demacian looks out of place in the Shadow Iles, this champ looks out of place when compared to champs not from Ionia.

Can't wait to hear about it. I hope they can fill more than one role though. Like the APCs who can also be support. Like Lux. I might actually play an AP champ with this guy.

More like Vyvern, not Dragon.

Ao Shin is indeed a chinese Dragon like, but for me it is poor concept.
I mean, he is avesome dragon from oriental mitology and stuff, but... C'mon, do we really need another dragon?

Why doesn't we have Wraith champion yet? Or T-rex like one? Even Harpy would cut it.
Meh concept for me, but +1 for trying.
