I assume it's not incorrect to assume that a 1350 RP skin has most of the following qualities:
- New model
- Some new sound effects
- Some new animations
- New spell/particle effects
- Possibly new voice
- Some new lines
- Likely limited to champions with multiple models/transformations (Nidalee, Kha'zix, etc.)
Kha'zix had all of these. Dragon Trainer Lulu has:
- New model
- Subtle new particle effects
- New dragon pix with animations
New model is a 975 RP quality. New spell/particle effects are a 975 RP quality. I honestly do not believe that Dragon Pix is worth the extra 375 RP. If you made it 1350 RP quality (eg. give Pix a voice, make Whimsy more noticeable on allies, give Lulu a few newer lines, possibly in relation to dragons, etc.), the skin would feel more satisfying.
This is just flat out wrong...the skin has
-New Pix Model
-New Pix Animations
-New(awesome and certainly not subtle) particles
-New model on enemy cast whismy (Models are a lot of work)
This makes it more work than a normal 975 skin, but not as much as the current standard for 1820. I am super confused the the huge outrage this community has had towards the pricing of this skin, what's wrong with a new tier of pricing? It's the same as it always has been before, if you don't want to pay that much, then buy a cheaper skin, or none at all. I, personally am not going to buy this skin, because I don't have a lot of extra cash at the moment, but I certainly don't begrudge Riot for pricing it the way they did. You people just don't seem to understand that skins such as this require significantly more work than others, more work=more paid man-hours=Riot has to price the skin at a higher tier to maintain an acceptable profitability margin.
