It's just, I'm a guy, specifically a guy that mains utility mages, Enchanters, my most played role is support. I am content, for the most part, with the champions I have to choose from, their kits are all fairly similar but with enough subtle differences to keep them from being clones. However, with the release of Yummi, and now the reveal of Seraphine, I'm honestly tired of seeing the same thing over and over again.
My issue is not with gameplay, even though I genuinely believe Yuumi should be yeeted from the League roster and turned into an item and that Seraphine is little more than a reworked Sona. My issue is with thematic, VFX, and general aesthetic.
Every single Enchanter more or less falls into the same category visually;
- Delicate, often "floaty" or otherwise maintaining a certain lightness to them.
- A bright cool color palette, pastels being near universal.
- If not outright beautiful/sexually attractive, then demure and innocent looking.
- Cheerful, altruistic, just by looking at them you can tell their morality is not in question.
- A dramatically feminine character design.
Riot could do so much better then release yet another "so she's like super cute and heals people" champion, if they just put in like 5% more thought and effort. It feels like, because support is primarily played by female players, Riot is lazy and throws them the same design over and over again, knowing it will at least be tolerated. There's several character designs in the League universe they could use that would be more unique and interesting then Yummi and Seraphine.
Maybe a Frost Priest who's utterly devoted to Lissandra, using the power of dark ice to heal his allies and debilitate the enemy. Or one of Vladimirs devotees from the Crimson Circle, who steals the lifeforce of enemies to fuel their teammates. Possibly even a champion from the Shadow Isles, empowering their team with esoteric sorcery, like the Soul Sheperd from Legends of Runeterra. '
Literally anything aside from what we already have would be welcome.
Edit: Okay, wow, did not expect to get this much attention, my posts are all art or lore related and so get immediate downvoted. I'd like to take this opportunity to share a champion concept I actually created a while ago. They are a Frost Priest Enchanter, with magic vision. My skills are in the narrative variety, so I have written a biography and voice lines for them, as well as a general idea of what their gameplay is like. I also found some nice concept art of what I'd imagine them to look like. His name is Verdand.
