Nidalee’s finally black

Pharaoh Nidalee.

It was hard to tell from the Pharaoh Nidalee splash screen, but it looks like Nidalee is finally going to embrace her ethnic roots and stop bleaching her skin. Bet you weren’t expecting this kind of post for a skin announcement.

Seriously, though, for as much time as people playing LoL spend bitching about engorged female attributes, the community completely ignores the fact that every human character is white. We can’t really count Ryze because he’s blue (even his human skin looks white in game). Finally, the jungle huntress is going to be black in game if you’re willing to spend ~$8 on the skin (I’m a sucker for Nidalee skins).

Riot also released Sailor Gangplank at long last, which means Deathkni…er…Dreadknight, yeah that’s it, Dreadknight Garen is on hold for the time being. Maybe they’re giving him back his left hand.


Dreadknight Garen and Pharaoh Nidalee to appear as mid-cycle skins


As with every patch, this one includes a couple mid-cycle skins that should release early next week. As you can see above, we’ve got Dreadknight Garen. Nidalee players can also get excited about Pharaoh Nidalee, whose cat form is a Siamese cat, as pictured below.


Personally, I would have liked to see Garen get a helmet of some kind for the whole ‘knight’ part of the skin. As it is, he kinda looks like a futuristic version of himself. The Nidalee skin looks pretty sweet, though.
