Hasn't it happened to you that you're playing the game for the first time and trying to figure out what things are supposed to do and you encounter yourslef with a bunch of images that don't really explain anything? Here's the thread to post them!

Zilean the ChronoKeeper

Look at these two images. One of these resets the cooldown of your skills while the other one Slows/Hastes the target. Pick a wild guess on which one does what...
WRONG! The one that speeds you up is not the man running and you have no idea how many times i've used/leveled the wrong skill because of this.



Warwick the BloodHunter

Hungering Strike... this one is great. Everytime i looked at it in-game i thought it was a boat until i found this image and actually figured out it was a claw piercing an armor.



Singe The mad Alchemist
  • *******http://www.leagueoflegends.com/images/champions/icons/abilities/ability_1_21.jpg********
That's poison trail for you. I gotta say i have no idea what's/where's that supposed to be.



Teemo the Swift Scout
  • *******http://www.leagueoflegends.com/images/champions/icons/abilities/ability_4_23.jpg********
THAT doesn't look like a mushroom.
  • *******http://www.leagueoflegends.com/images/champions/icons/abilities/ability_3_23.jpg********
This is not that bad actually, but everytime i see it i think of a nuke, not a poisoning effect.



Jax the Armmaster
  • *******http://www.leagueoflegends.com/images/champions/icons/abilities/ability_1_24.jpg********
No idea what's going on here.
  • *******http://www.leagueoflegends.com/images/champions/icons/abilities/ability_2_24.jpg********
This is probably going to be just me, but this looks like an axe. Not a leapstrike.
  • *******http://www.leagueoflegends.com/images/champions/icons/abilities/ability_3_24.jpg********
What? What does this have to do with Counter Strike? This would make so much more sense
*******http://www.sprayrate.com/img/hl_icon.jpg********
  • *******http://www.leagueoflegends.com/images/champions/icons/abilities/ability_4_24.jpg********
HE DOESN'T EVEN PUNCH PEOPLE!
  • *******http://www.leagueoflegends.com/images/champions/icons/abilities/ability_5_24.jpg********
And this looks right out of jax's facebook page. "Me fishing a dolphin, lulz"


Sivir the Battle Mistress
  • *******http://www.leagueoflegends.com/images/champions/icons/abilities/ability_1_25.jpg********
I'm not really sure if this is the actual spiral blade icon that's on the game. But for some reason it reminds me of Sailor moon. But again, this is probably just me.


Ashe The Frost Archer
  • *******http://www.leagueoflegends.com/images/champions/icons/abilities/ability_3_26.jpg********
Seem familiar? What does THAT thing (that is not a mushroom) has anything to do with extra gold gain. EXPLAIN D:


Evelyn the WidowMaker
  • *******http://www.leagueoflegends.com/images/champions/icons/abilities/ability_1_28.jpg********
If constipation has anything to do with stealth i'm a freaking Ninja.
  • *******http://www.leagueoflegends.com/images/champions/icons/abilities/ability_2_28.jpg********
I didn't notice this on the game. Probably too small to see that it was actually a claw.
  • *******http://www.leagueoflegends.com/images/champions/icons/abilities/ability_5_28.jpg********
I know that her passive is hard to evoke with an icon. But i'm not sure i was getting anything that even ressembles that by looking at this.


Karthus the DeathSinger
  • *******http://www.leagueoflegends.com/images/champions/icons/abilities/ability_1_29.jpg********
When i think of lay waste, i think of a bunch of little explosions, not of pacman ghosts atacking my shadow.
  • *******http://www.leagueoflegends.com/images/champions/icons/abilities/ability_2_29.jpg***************http://www.leagueoflegends.com/images/champions/icons/abilities/ability_3_29.jpg***************http://www.leagueoflegends.com/images/champions/icons/abilities/ability_5_29.jpg********
"Man! i can't think of something to reflect a wall of pain and Defile!" "Dunno, purple maybe?"
Also, i didn't know a "NO SHEEP" sign could help me cast spells while dead.

More to come...

I disagree with the teemo picks, and semi-disagree with the Jax ones, but otherwise your RIGHT ON THE MARK, especially with Zilean skills, they are silly to have them that way round!
