Seasonal events are a big deal in League of Legends and for the Lunar Revel everyone’s celebrating including Baron Nashor.
That’s right, the biggest monster on all of Summoner’s Rift is currently decked out in a Lunar Revel costume on the Public Beta Environment, where Riot is testing the changes ahead of the event’s actual release.
To be fair to the Baron, this isn’t the only time it’s gotten into the spirit of an event. Most memorably, Baron Nashor will get a Christmas hat around Riot’s winter celebration. And while a Christmas hat is a fun and silly touch, this is likely the biggest temporary visual change the Baron has ever undergone. It’s nice to see every part of Summoner’s Rift look a little different in celebration of an event, and it’s fun to see Riot go out on a limb and try something new with one of their signature creature designs.
The new Baron look should ship with the rest of the Lunar Revel which will probably go live with the next patch a couple of weeks from now. For more information on Riot’s upcoming event, check out our post on the Lunar Revel skins here.
