Is anyone else confused by the "Emerald Taric" skin sale announcement? They feature a screenshot of Taric rockin' a cool skin that is neither Classic nor Emerald - and that's the one I want.

(I believe some have found that skin lurking in old files and all. It's gold armor with blue gems, Riot has since ninja'd it away.)

Does a red or a random player have more knowledge on this?

Thanks,

Crysknife

Sine their shots are done in a strange format where they can adjust camera and what not, I imagine they just threw the wrong texture on and didn't double check.

I'm pretty sure that is just the effect that happens when he uses his ultimate.

That's a pic of the classic one. They just messed up. It looks that good if you turn your character detail all the way up.

Actually, if you look through the Gemknight folder, there's a third skin that contains that armor color, with the classic Gemknight gem colors. It looks pretty neat to me. However, the real Emerald Taric is of course Candy Apple Green and Gold (Green for the money, Gold for the Honeys). I wish they would make a Ruby Taric, using the Gold Armor with Red Gems.

Im confused as to what are you confused about.
Are you reffering to the picture in the announcement section?
What is different to Emerald Taric in that picture (which is a render and a layer of airbrush over it, so basically an artistic representation, just as with any other picture of a skin).

Golden armor, green stones, brown hair.
Am I missing something?


edit: Or what is removed in the meantime?

They ninja edited the picture away again. But yeah they had the gold armor blue gem skin, which is unreleased/rough draft.
