Snowdown Showdown comes to League of Legends

snowdownshowdownTo celebrate the holidays, Riot Games has released some special content for players dubbed the Snowdown Showdown. Known to the people of Valoran as the Time of Snowdown, it is celebrated with feasts and festivals in Bandle City, and more reverence is shown for the holiday from Demacia where they remember their fallen heroes. Even Noxians will show some clemency towards prisoners during the Time of Snowdown.

But for players, there will be new hero skins and glyphs to get in order to get you into a festive mood.

Champion skins: We will release 3 new skins on Day 1 of the Snowdown Showdown:

  • Snow Bunny Nidalee (special price of 260 RP if bought as bundle with Nidalee from 12/16-12/23, then priced at 520 RP)
  • Happy Elf Teemo (available from 12/17-1/6)
  • Workshop Nunu (available from 12/17-1/6)

We will also be releasing 2 limited edition skins which will only be available during the following periods:

  • Old St. Zilean (only available from 12/23-12/27)
  • Earnest Elf Tristana (only available from 12/31-1/3)

Runes: We will release 6 special holiday runes that will only be available from 12/16-1/6. 3 of them will be Tier 1.5, and 3 will be Tier 2.5.

  • Mark of the Crippling Candy Cane (Tier 2.5, critical damage)
  • Mark of the Yuletide Tannenbaum (Tier 1.5, critical chance)
  • Glyph of the Special Stocking (Tier 2.5, cooldown reduction)
  • Seal of the Elusive Snowflake (Tier 2.5, dodge)
  • Glyph of the Gracious Gift (Tier 1.5, AP per level)
  • Seal of the Stout Snowman (Tier 1.5, HP per level)

Map: We will replace the winter map with Snowdown Rift, a seasonal variant of the winter version of Summoner’s Rift that includes many holiday elements.

Consumable item: The health potion in the in-game store will be replaced by the Riot Nog potion. The effect of the potion will remain identical to the effect of the health potion.

So make sure to keep your eyes on the store and grab up these awesome holiday items! You can read all about the Snowdown Showdown on the official site here and be sure to keep checking for more announcements!
