Mmmmmmmm candy

“Cosmetics will never make money in games!” – somebody probably said once upon a time. I had the same attitude. Why spend money on something that just makes your character look different? I’ve since changed my views on life, and I appreciate a good exterior. The League of Legends Sugar Rush is nearly here, bringing with it a whole lot of goodies for the community.

One freebie that all players can eat right up is the double IP weekend, taking place from 12:01am PDT on August 30 until 11:59pm PDT on September 1. If you’ve been holding out on farming for new champions, this is the weekend to cancel EVERYTHING and just play dozens of games. You’ll farm up a good few thousand IP in no time at all.

For everything else, there’s MasterCard RP, the currency which costs real money. That too will be discounted, so grab those piggy banks and empty those wallets, because these are specials that don’t come around very often.

  • $5.00 – 650 RP
  • $10.00 – 1460 RP (1300 + 80 standard bonus RP + 80 extra bonus RP)
  • $20.00 – 3000 RP (2600 + 200 standard bonus RP + 200 extra bonus RP)
  • $35.00 – 5450 RP (4550 + 450 standard bonus RP + 450 extra bonus RP)
  • $50.00 – 7900 RP (6500 + 700 standard bonus RP + 700 extra bonus RP)
  • $100.00 – 17000 RP (13000 + 2000 standard bonus RP + 2000 extra bonus RP)

What can you spend this newly acquired RP on you ask? Oh no, why did you poke that beast? Kiss your money goodbye! There will be custom candy icons, a neat Sinfully Sweet bundle, as well as, wait for it… Legacy skins! The Sinfully Sweet bundle will cost 3860 RP (30% off) and contain the following:

  • Lollipoppy (Legacy)
  • Bittersweet Lulu
  • Dark Candy Fiddlesticks (Legacy)
  • Sinful Succulence Morgana
  • Candy Cane Miss Fortune (Legacy)
  • Gingerbread Ward

There will be all 47 legacy skins available at some point, so keep your eyes peeled. The list is too lengthy to post right here,  but you can find all of them all over at the League of Legends blog.

There are the above and various other goodies to spend your money on. All I know is that Leopard Nidalee is on that list, and my temptation is very high.

The event kicks off today, and carries on till next Monday. Will you be taking part? Are there any legacy skins or goodies you will definitely be buying?

Defence of the Ancients? More like Defence of the cabbages! Have you seen my head? I look like a Merino Sheep on pole. NO SHANGE only SHAPPIES! :D
