The Victorious skin is a hot topic every year in League of Legends. It usually goes to a champion who’s had a high impact on both pro play and solo queue. In Season 10, it looks like that honor is being bestowed on Lucian, teasers from Riot have revealed.

Last year it was Aatrox. The year before, Orianna. This year, the first marksman since Sivir in Season 5 could be receiving the prestigious Victorious skin in League of Legends: Lucian.

Teasers released by Riot Taiwan have all but confirmed the Demacian to be the recipient of one of League’s most sought after skins. The two images look exactly like Lucian, from the light pistol he wields, to his iconic dreads.

Lucian, who has been in League of Legends since 2013, has been a popular pick ever since. It was only a matter of time until he got his Victorious skin, which would certainly bring smiles to the faces of Lucian mains.

Lucian has had a high presence in both solo queue and pro play, especially in the second half of the year. This was thanks to consecutive buffs in Patch 10.11, 10.13, and 10.16. After the latter buff, his playrate skyrocketed in pro play, becoming a must-pick in most regional finals.

He has around 25% pick rate in solo queue according to stats site LoLalytics, spanning across top, mid, and bot lane. While he doesn’t boast a stellar win rate ⁠— around 49% ⁠— Lucian’s high pick rate speaks volumes about his influence on Season 10.

While there are potentially a couple of other theories ⁠— Gangplank rising up as a possible challenger ⁠— most are convinced that the teasers are of Lucian.

How to get Victorious Lucian in League of Legends

The conditions to get Victorious Lucian ⁠— or whoever the Victorious skin is eventually given to ⁠— in Season 10 will be the same as other seasons. If you finished the rank season in Gold or above, you’ll be bestowed the skin when the season ends.

You also need to be above Honor Level 2 and have an account in good standing ⁠— that means no current suspensions on your account when the ranked season ends.

It’s unclear if extra chromas will be on the line too. Last year, if you finished higher than Gold in both Flex and Solo queues, you received a bonus chroma. We will update you once more information arises.

Diana has descended from the heavens of Mount Targon here on Earth ⁠— or so you could be mistaken into thinking. Scottish cosplayer ‘anaelic’ has once again delivered the goods for League of Legends fan, putting on an epic display with her Dragonslayer Diana cosplay.

Seeing a Diana cosplay for League of Legends is rare. However, finding an exquisite one is almost impossible. The Scorn of the Moon, with her heavy armor and massive Moonsilver blade, isn’t up there with one of the popular champions to cosplay.

However, that hasn’t stopped anaelic from creating one of the best ⁠— if not the best ⁠— Diana cosplay with her incredible rendition of the Lunari’s Dragonslayer skin.

The Dragonslayer skin for Diana is one of her most intricate, but that didn’t stop anaelic.

Anaelic has been working on her Dragonslayer Diana cosplay since lockdown began. She was originally going to take it to conventions, but with 2020 stopping all of those, she instead used the project as motivation.

“This project has instead been my distraction, the thing that’s kept me motivated to stay productive, and I’m so proud that I at least have this to show for all the extra time I’ve had,” she said on Instagram after completing her cosplay.

You can tell just how much effort she put into it right from the first glance. Anaelic has managed to recreate the Aspect’s sunset-colored armor perfectly, not forgetting a single panel on Diana’s intricate outfit.

She managed to keep all the pieces together with velcro, although the cosplay is ⁠— understandably ⁠— very hard to get around it.

“I honestly don’t know how I’m going to survive a full day at a con in this cosplay because it is so hard to move about it! It was well worth it though because we got some amazing photos,” she added.

Anaelic also considered all the small details ⁠— she recreated the smoky effect on her blade with a smoke machine and LED lights built into the crescent. The cosplay is not only one of the best Diana ones we’ve seen, but one of the best cosplays of the year. Period.

The Scottish cosplayer isn’t stopping here though. If you’re wondering what anaelic’s next project is, wonder no more. She is currently working on a Spirit Blossom Lillia cosplay, and she’s trying to make it perfect from head-to-hoof. We’ve even covered her progress on it so far!
