I really wish I had a more interesting post for you guys – however, we’re currently on day 3 of a 4 day weekend, and all I’ve done is play league of legends. I kid you not. It’s my life now.
So I thought I’d show you guys some of my characters I’ve gotten so far, and what skins I’ve chosen for them.
Before I even started playing the game, I had a look online at the list of skins available, to make sure I would like the characters. I’m weird enough to refuse to play a game if I can’t have a cute or pretty character. (I know, I’m totally lame. Whatever, I’m the one who has to stare at it for hours on end. Literally, I’m not exaggerating.) Luckily, there were heaps that I wanted… So here we go!
This was the first one that caught my eye when I was browsing, and what made me decide to play. So, naturally, I chose her for my first champion and bought this skin (unfortunately skins cost real money to buy, but I can’t help myself. Hey, I’m saving money by staying at home to play anyway.) I love elf-type looking characters in games, and this one was no different. Soraka is a support/healer, which I don’t mind playing sometimes but generally I like to be a bit more in the action. I still love her though.
Ashe is the champion that you use during the tutorial, so I thought she would be a cool one to buy – plus, this skin is so damn cute. I am planning on playing with her, but I just haven’t gotten around to it yet (apart from the tutorial, obviously.) I’ve only been playing for a couple days, so I’m still getting a feel for all the different champions and their play-styles before focusing on one at a time.
Order of the Lotus Irelia
Irelia was another one of my purchases on the day I started. I enjoy playing with her a lot, but because she’s a fighter/assassin, I find it quite difficult. For example, having time to run out of the turret’s range since you have to be up close to fight it. (I’m so sorry if you don’t play and have no idea what I’m talking about. Just enjoy the pretty pixels.) Eventually I’d love to learn how to play well with her, because even in World of Warcraft and Aion I would usually choose assassin. But for now I’m just trying to focus on the gameplay in general.
Because my boyfriend is a sweet heart (most of the time) and also plays, he bought me a mystery skin box – and this was the skin that was in it! I love the difference in the two Irelia skins I own and I’m excited (yet tormented) to have two to choose from now.
Ice Drake Shyvana
I wanted a tougher champion to play with – I was tired of everyone else getting a heap of kills while I had less than 5. After buying Shyvana and this boss-ass-bitch skin (seriously, how badass does she look?) I realised that had more to do with my total lack of skill and experience, rather than what champion I was using. And let me tell you: I suck with Shyvana. I have no idea how to play as her or what I’m doing. I’m thinking I need to devote a little time to watching tutorials on YouTube or something just for a basic idea. If you play, and use Shyvana… how?! Please tell me.
This is the only champion I bought without also buying a skin to use for her. Unfortunately, the one I wanted (Challenger Ahri – the featured image at the start of this post) isn’t available to buy – however, there’s a very small chance you can receive one in the mystery skin box as a gift. So I bought Ahri purely for that very, very tiny chance. I actually love how she looks without a skin anyway, so I don’t mind that much if I never get it. I haven’t used Ahri yet (I only bought her today) but from what I’ve seen, she looks fun to play.
Since I had completely failed with Shyvana, I decided to try another tough looking chick to get some kills. I’ll be honest, I still suck, but there’s definitely an improvement when using Sivir. Marksman is my favourite attribute so far (though that title bothers me, so I’m going to go ahead and call it ranging) because you can stay back from the other team’s champions and still cause considerable damage. Sivir was my favourite to play, until I purchased the next champion earlier today…
I hadn’t really considered buying Varus. In my opinion, a lot of the guy champions look the same/uninteresting, and plus, I like playing as a girl. However, I was in a match and somebody on my team was absolutely wrecking the other team’s champions. I believe he had 30+ kills, which was ridiculously impressive to me. So after the game ended, I noted down what champion he was using and what items he was using (in the game, you can purchase items with gold you’ve received which give you bonuses or other abilities), so I could practice. And this method worked out the best for me because I’m finally starting to get somewhere with Varus, and not stuck feeling like a complete loser. I mean, I’m still not great, but it’s still a slight improvement. And once again, my sometimes-sweet boyfriend bought me this skin to use, and it’s adorable.
As you can see from this awful, spur-of-the-moment screenshot, little hearts appear by the enemies you’re fighting. Nothing says trying to viciously destroy your opponents more than cute red hearts, right? Right.
So there you have it, the champions and their skins that were lucky enough to be chosen by me.
If you play and want to add me, great! My username is owlings and I play on the North American server.
Otherwise, I hope you enjoyed this post and I’ll see you next time!
