Default Spirit Guard Udyr now available!

Surrender at 20: Spirit Guard Udyr now available!

Quote:
The long awaited, ultimate tier Spirit Guard Udyr skin is now available for purchase! For the next four days, he will be available for 1950 RP ( along with an Udyr + SGU bundle for 2295 RP ) as part of a special promotion and after that he will be available at his normal 3250 RP price point.


This ultimate skin features brand spankin' new models, particles, animations, voiceovers, unique effects on minions kills, and even evolves as you max rank your stances! Additionally, you'll also get four sweet new summoner profile banner & icon combos with purchase. Check out Riot's promotional website for more information!

Continue reading for a closer look at the skin, the goodies that come with it, and more!

Here's Riot's promo videos, one for each of Spirit Guard Udyr's four stances, which show case all the animations, particles, and other such fancy things for each stance.

Bear Stance

Tiger Stance

Turtle Stance

Phoenix Stance


Purchasing Spirit Guard Udyr will also net you four summoner icons and profile banners - one for each stance!

In case you don't like those fancy movin' pictures, here's comparison's of each of the rank 1 vs rank 5 stance models:


Base ( No Stance )

Phoenix Stance
Rank 1 Rank 5
Tiger Stance
Rank 1 Rank 5
Turtle Stance
Rank 1 Rank 5
Bear Stance
Rank 1 Rank5
Additionally, Spirit Guard Udyr will have new death animations and recall animations in the NEXT patch - they were not ready in time for release.

These previews are taken from the 7/16 PBE:




While the login screen is interactive, we've whipped up a video containing the different stance transitions and music. Click here for the interactive experience.


There is also a super awesome special surprise to come along with SGU - Riot has added an in-client, interactive comic! While it's MUCH more impressive in game as it has moving slides and voice overs, and I recommend you view it there, here is a gallery of the images capped from the client.

Here's the animated/voiced version of the comic if anyone is interested~



(I still don't think this should have been an Ultimate Skin...the art for it is beautiful, but the model is very....meh compared to PFE )

It's easy to see that a lot of effort went into his skin but he's rarely played and the stances are basically the same thing in incomplete wrapping.

Well unlike Ezreal, Udyr doesn't have nearly as many skill effects for Riot to play with.

They could've given him complete transformations though, and it would've looked so much better.

Oh I can't imagine the time it would've taken. If this has taken longer than PFE and this is the result, SGU Udyr would've probably been the next Magma Chamber.

I'm not going to argue over the time it would've taken, but at the same time SGU would've raised the bar so much higher than PFE, instead of lowering it. Even the transformations look more diverse on PFE and they're only 3, unlike the new skins and it was released a year ago which makes it even worse for this skin.

I wouldn't be surprised if riot won't release another ultimate skin for at least a year (even though they promised to).


I might be overreacting though, but when PFE came out 1/3 of my friend list bought it on the first day, now nobody bought it.

SGU has nine different models. Nine. (I assume the base form doesn't have a level 18 form.) How many does PFE have? Three. I wouldn't say you're overreacting as much as you're setting yourself up for failure. I mean, there's a reason there are so few Udyr skins. Lots of models and, to a degree, he can be thematically challenging. On top of it, he doesn't have nearly as many embellishments on his attacks compared to other characters. Hell, Bear Stance's microstun looks like a regular autoattack, and same with Tiger Stance's first-hit effect.

Which is why I want to know why they made the next Ultimate skin for him in the first place

Hasn't had a skin in eons. One of the oldest champs. One of his skins isn't even a real skin. If it weren't for SGU, the next thing he probably would've gotten would've been a VU....... once it was finally his turn (so at the very least after Sivir, Sion, Twitch, and company).
