Your new summoner icons will be unleashed after the release of the Shadow Isles patch to haunt your profile forevermore.
Here’s the breakdown:
- Tier 1 (any RP amount): Spiteful Specter
- Tier 2 (1,000+ RP): Baleful Grasp plus Tier 1
- Tier 3 (2,500+ RP): Death Mask plus Tiers 1-2
- Tier 4 (5,000+ RP): Deadfall Treant plus Tiers 1-3
- Tier 5 (10,000+ RP): Vengeful Wraith plus Tiers 1-4
If you purchase RP and meet a new tier after the patch, it’ll take about ten minutes after your transaction is processed before your new icons are available to use.
So treat yourself to some RP for a wicked Shadow Isles champion or skin, and trick opponents with your freaky new summoner face!
As someone that has bought thousands of RP over the life time of LoL I find this offending. This should include all RP bought from the beginning of LoL to Nov 13. To reward those that doll out cash during a limited time rather then the players that have done so up till this point is a slap in the face. I would think this even worse for the those that rarely buy RP only to have done so slightly before this event only to find they have to doll out more if they want this special treatment.
Riot, you should be rewarding your long standing/paying customers, not alienating them. I have spent a good amount of money for the skins and champions and don't regret a single dime spent. But, I feel that I and others like me are being forced to spend more to earn this treat rather then being thanked for our financial support.
This is, without a doubt, a slap in the face.
No, this will not stop me from buying RP for skins, I love this game too much. I will not however take part in this event.
