SNOWDOWN BEGINS DECEMBER 10TH Banner

The holiday sales will launch on December 10th. Scroll below for more details or check out Riot’s official promo site:

 

A chill in the air; A handful of ice

A present for you; How lovely, how nice!

It’s round and it’s cold; Packed tight and frozen

A face full of frost for the unlucky chosen

The battle starts now; Put some cold in your fist

Snowdown arrives with an aerial twist

So throw on some gloves and step into the sun

This Snowdown’s about snowballs and friends having fun!

The poros are back and they’re joining your side in Legend of the Poro King. Jumping into a match, you’ll see two poro pals flanking you in combat. Each one grants a summoner spell that will help you call forth and aid the majestic Poro King!

The Poro King is a mega-classy super minion that heals your team, regenerates mana, and deals AoE damage while handing out royal beatdowns to enemy towers on the Howling Abyss. Summon the mighty Poro King by landing Poro Toss ten times. The King will serve as a sieging dynamo for you until he is killed by the enemy team in a regicide most foul.


 

PORO TOSS

Activate Poro Toss once to toss your teeny poro pal across the map. If the lil’ fella hits a target, trigger Poro Toss again to Poro Dash, which will send you soaring towards an unlucky enemy. If your team lands ten Poro Tosses, his excellence the Poro King will plop down and begin his royal wreckery.

 

 

TO THE KING

When the Poro King hits Howling Abyss, activate To the King! to transform into one of the King’s loyal (fluffy) subjects and fly to his majestic side.

“Gather your friends, for Snowdown draws near.
Don’t say me, I or them, we’re together this year.
There’s a chill in the air and frost on the scene —
In big comfy chairs, it’s forward we lean
Mice flicking, Keys clacking, our skillshots land clean.
No earmuffs for us — we wear headsets, you see.
Minds focused, eyes wide and lit up with glee
We win some, we lose some, that’s how the game goes
But that’s fine, we’re together, among friends, no foes.”

 

And here is the announcement for all regions!

Legend of the Poro King Game Mode

Celebrate the holidays with “Legend of the Poro King”, a custom mode played on the Howling Abyss. Here’s an overview of the new game mode:

 

From the official promo site:

Tired of hiding in the brush, the poros are itching to join the fray! In Legend of the Poro King, you’ll notice two poro friends following you into the fight. Each grants a summoner spell exclusive to Legend of the Poro King. They’re also the key to summoning the resplendently grandiloquent Poro King, a super (royal) minion that heals your team, regenerates mana and deals AoE damage while lumbering across the bridge to punish enemy towers. Early research points to the King’s moustache as the source of his power.

 

Legend of the Poro King Trailer


Poro King Banner

 

HOW TO PORO KING 

Poro Toss/Dash means team comps always have five initiators. Now that every champ reliably starts brawls, it’s time to settle the new poro meta. 

Keep in mind, summoning the Poro King is a massive boost to your team’s sieging potential. Don’t underestimate the AoE damage he lays down and the AoE heal he serves up. Pitch a poro every time Poro Toss is off cooldown, because the first team to rack up ten poro smacks receives a royal visit. When the King’s on your side of the fight, protect him. Conversely, depose the King immediately if he’s leading the other team.”

 

And here’s an in-game preview of the mode:

Champion Select is Blind Draft pick – you can ban champions and you can’t see what the enemy has picked. You also can’t change your Summoner Spells; the following two are locked for you:

 


Poro Toss IconPoro Toss

No Cost || Cooldown: 20 Seconds

Active: Throw a Poro a long distance, dealing true damage to the first enemy unit hit. This ability can be recast for 3 seconds if it hits an enemy, to dash to the target hit. Dashing to the target will reduce the cooldown of Poro Toss by 5 seconds.

Poros are not blocked by spell shields or wind walls because they are animals, not spells!

“Poros are a model for Runeterran aerodynamics.”

 


To the King IconTo the King!

No Cost || Cooldown: 10 Seconds

Passive: Hitting an enemy champion with a Poro gives your team a Poro Mark. Upon reaching 10 Poro Marks, your team summons the Poro King to fight alongside them. While the Poro King is active, no Poro Marks can be scored by either team.

Active: Quickly dash to King Poro’s side. Can only be cast while the Poro King is summoned for your team.

“Poros tug the heartstrings. The rest of you just comes along for the ride.”

 

The match starts with everyone at level 3. You also get a few poros to follow you.

 

The goal is to score poro hits on enemies with your Poro Toss. The goals are displayed on the top-right score graph.

 


Get 10 goals and you summon the Poro King, who will tank towers and let you push. He’ll also occasionally throw poros around for lols.

 

Problem is, the Poro King does almost no damage and has the AI of a bronze player. As a result, he’s more of a tanky waypoint for you to teleport back to with To the King! and not a worthwhile objective.

 

A TL;DR would be: the new game mode is ARAM where you get to pick your champion and everyone gets a Lee Sin Q.

 

These five Summoner Icons each cost 250 RP in the store. They also change how the poros that follow you look.

Snowdown FAQ

 

Game Mode Reward Icons

 

Q: Sweet icons, how do I get ’em?

A: Each one’s a little different. Head here to read up on the exact requirements for each.

 

Q: Do I have to play Legend of the Poro King to earn these icons?

A: Yes.

 

Q: I fulfilled the requirements and checked my icon drawer, but my reward isn’t there. What gives?

A: Give us 24 hours from the moment you meet the requirements to work out any kinks. If you still don’t have your icon, contact Player Support. They’ll fix you up.

 

Mystery Gifts 

 

Q: What’s the new Mystery Chest thing?

A: It works just like a Mystery Gift except it features content normally priced at 975 RP or more and it costs a bit more (790 RP).

 

Q: Are there 2x Snowdown rewards in Mystery Gifts and Mystery Chests?

A: The chance of Snowdown content appearing is doubled for Mystery Gifts, but not Mystery Chests.

 

Skins and Ward Skins

 

Q: Which skins are legacy skins?

A: Like previous years, this year’s Snowdown skins are legacy. That’s Winter Wonder Orianna, Snow Day Malzahar, and Poro Rider Sejuani. We’re offering another shot at yesteryear’s skins as well though. Learn more here.

 

Q: When will they go into the vault?

A: When Snowdown ends on January 6th at 2 AM PST.

 

Q: What about the ward skins, are they legacy too?

A: They are, but they’re not turning off until January 30th. Keep an eye out for more poro-themed ward skins in a future patch.

 

Poro Icons

 

Q: HOW DO I GET SKINNED POROS IN LEGEND OF THE PORO KING?

A: First, take a deep breath, we’re gonna get through this together. You’ll need to head over to the store and unlock the icon of your choice for 250 RP. From there, switch your active summoner icon to your new poro icon by clicking the image next to your summoner name. After that, fire up a round of Legend of the Poro King and sling your newly-skinned friend to your heart’s delight.

Remember, you can’t change your summoner icon once you’re in champ select. Make your poro icon pick before you push play!

 

Q: Do the skins from these poro icons grant the Slaybelle Surprise icon?

A: They do not.

 

Q: Why can’t I keep poro skins forever?

A: Poro skins were tailor-made for Legend ofthe Poro King, so they;ll be leaving with the game mode. Like all beautiful things, poro skins are too ephemeral for this mortal plane.

 

Q: I keep my icon though, right?

A: You totally do.

 

Q: Are poro icons legacy?

A: They are indeed. They’ll be exiting the store at the end of Snowdown on January 6th at 2 AM PST.

 

HUD

 

Q: Why is my HUD so frosty and different?

A: We thought it’d be rad for Snowdown. Your normal HUD will be back after the event concludes on January 6th at 2 AM PST.

 

Here’s a preview of the new HUD:

Client Lore

“The largest and fiercest of her species, Rek’Sai is a merciless predator that tunnels through the earth to ambush and devour her prey. Her insatiable hunger has laid waste to entire regions of the once-great Shuriman empire. Merchants, traders and armed caravans will go hundreds of miles out of their way to avoid these vast areas, though cunning bandits have been known to lure the unwary into her killing grounds. Once Rek’Sai detects you, your fate is sealed. There is no hope of escape; she is death from below the sand.”

 

Fury of the Xer'Sai Final IconFury of the Xer’Sai [ Passive ]

Dealing damage while unburrowed generates Fury. Burrowing consumes Fury over 5 seconds to restore up to X health. During this time, Rek’Sai’s next attack that generates Fury will grant 15 bonus Fury. White regenerating health, Rek’Sai’s next ability will also generate 15 additional Fury

Cooldown: 4 seconds || Range: 1650

Burrowed – Unburrow: Rek’Sai bursts out into the open, knocking up nearby enemies for 1 second, based on their proximity to Rek’Sai, and dealing 60/110/160/210/260 ( + 0.5 Bonus AD) physical damage to them. A unit cannot be hit by Unburrow more than once every 10 seconds.

Legend of the Poro King Game Mode

Celebrate the holidays with “Legend of the Poro King”, a custom mode played on the Howling Abyss. Here’s an overview of the new game mode:

 

Champion Select is Blind Draft pick – you can ban champions and you can’t see what the enemy has picked. You also can’t change your Summoner Spells; the following two are locked for you:

 

 
Poro Toss IconPoro Toss

No Cost || Cooldown: 20 Seconds

Active: Throw a Poro a long distance, dealing true damage to the first enemy unit hit. This ability can be recast for 3 seconds if it hits an enemy, to dash to the target hit. Dashing to the target will reduce the cooldown of Poro Toss by 5 seconds.

Poros are not blocked by spell shields or wind walls because they are animals, not spells!

“Poros are a model for Runeterran aerodynamics.”

 


To the King IconTo the King!

No Cost || Cooldown: 10 Seconds

Passive: Hitting an enemy champion with a Poro gives your team a Poro Mark. Upon reaching 10 Poro Marks, your team summons the Poro King to fight alongside them. While the Poro King is active, no Poro Marks can be scored by either team.

Active: Quickly dash to King Poro’s side. Can only be cast while the Poro King is summoned for your team.

“Poros tug the heartstrings. The rest of you just comes along for the ride.”

 

The match starts with everyone at level 3. You also get a few poros to follow you.

 

The goal is to score poro hits on enemies with your Poro Toss. The goals are displayed on the top-right score graph.

 


Get 10 goals and you summon the Poro King, who will tank towers and let you push. He’ll also occasionally throw poros around for lols.

 

Problem is, the Poro King does almost no damage and has the AI of a bronze player. As a result, he’s more of a tanky waypoint for you to teleport back to with To the King! and not a worthwhile objective.

 

A TL;DR would be: the new game mode is ARAM where you get to pick your champion and everyone gets a Lee Sin Q.

 

These five Summoner Icons each cost 250 RP in the store. They also change how the poros that follow you look.

These two are still a mystery, but I assume they’re rewards for playing the new game mode.
