Somehow, someway, we're almost through October. This means it's time for Riot Games to announce the new set of champion and skin sales coming to League of Legends in November.
I'm guessing the discounted champions must people will go for are Riven, Yasuo, Zed and Vayne. Everyone sees the highlight reels for those characters on YouTube and decides that they want to get some Pentakills of their own. If you're one of those people hoping to hypercarry games, godspeed.
If you'd rather just win games, though, there are some other characters worth considering. Malphite is one of the best top laners in the game right now and is absurdly easy to play. His ultimate is absurdly effective for starting (and winning) teamfights. Diana is a well-rounded fighter that can be played jungle, mid or even top. Nautilus is versatile as well and considered one of the best support characters in the game thanks to all of his crowd control. Lissandra, Twisted Fate and Veigar are all relatively easy middle lane mages that pack a serious punch. Veigar in particular is really strong right now but I suspect he might get nerfed after the 2015 Worlds wrap up.
As far as skins go, Pool Party Renekton is the clear winner. I hate playing against Renekton but his Pool Party skin never ceases to make me smile. It turns the hulking crocodile warrior into a lifeguard who wields a rescue can in battle.
Here's the full list of champions and skins on sale in November. As usual, Riot didn't announce when during the month each will be on discount so keep your eyes peeled:
