Riven: "The Shattered Exile" http://i.imgur.com/H6fsB.jpg

"It's never too late for redemption. This former Noxian soldier has forsaken her malevolent compatriots on a quest for self-discovery, wielding a shattered sword to remind her of the fractured world she left behind. Her high-mobility playstyle is reminiscent of arcade fighters, with the ability to combo skills in quick succession for maximum damage. When she gets her ultimate, people will die: her sword reforms to unlock its full power, sending massive energy waves crackling through the air with each slice."

Plus her pretty hot sword: http://i.imgur.com/GjtRt.jpg

Quote :
With Riven on the horizon, I wanted to take a few minutes and give you all a sneak peek into some of her gameplay and mechanics.
Riven is a flow-based fighter who performs aggressive combo attacks to decimate her opponents. This often involves her stepping forward into her sword swings to chase down cowardly enemies who might try to escape or utilize their ranged attacks to avoid direct combat. This highly mobile fighting style makes her a really aggressive, momentum-based character.
Her signature ability is Broken Wings, a 3-part combo slash that causes her to step forward and slash nearby enemies. On her 3rd hit, Broken Wings unleashes a nova, knocking nearby enemies back. While performing the three-hit Broken Wings combo is powerful in its own right, more veteran Riven players will find great opportunities to mix in her Ki Shout to deliver a short stun (for her to follow up with more devastation) or move into an even better position with Valor.
Her ultimate, Blade of the Exile, allows her to reform her broken sword, restoring her former power and allowing her to activate Wind Slash, a powerful shockwave that slices the air itself to cut down enemies that are out of reach.
We're excited about Riven because she draws some heavy inspiration from fighting games, utilizing combos that can be interspersed with other abilities to change timing and effect as needed. This flow and feel is something we feel will appeal highly to aggressive players who want to make split-second decisions on when to deal damage and when to sacrifice damage in favor of additional utility effects.

AND:

Magus: "The Magus Ascendant" http://i.imgur.com/W4eLE.jpg

"This caster champ, a being of pure energy, perfectly captures the feeling of uncontrollable power. He charges up energy with each spellcast, temporarily increasing the damage and cost of subsequent spells. Playing him will be a tricky balancing act between knowing when to open the floodgates and pour out your damage, and when you're better off taking the slow-and-steady route"
The main image of Magus as a white ghost with armor and chains is his "super-charged" form, while the bottom shield-like image is his "low-energy" form.

After reading her mechanics preview, Riven sounds like she'll be fun to play. Also designed by Xypherous, so thats another reason to get her...

Magus doesn't seem all that interesting at the moment.

Just realised I posted this in the wrong subforum. Oh well.

Quote :
In no particular order, things that I took inspiration from: Inuyasha, Kenshin, KoToR/KoToR 2, Marth's SSBB incarnation, Arthas..

KotOR.... I was like "What the fuck does Riven have to do with KotOR?"
And then.... Riven... Revan...

But wasnt revan just the player character and technically could look a bajillion different ways?

So liek only maybe that cool cloak he/she is wearing when you take the mask off is a way to identify Revan and Riven doesn't look anything like that dawg. Also if you still haven't played KotoR I just ruined the whole game for you umad?

Looks like fable art style imo with a WoW inspired sword.
