[New to League of Legends?] Everything you need to know about the Harrowing!

https://3.bp.blogspot.com/-ffmz2AvDOas/V_QqoiBSHaI/AAAAAAAAVks/2W7JTTIJ81EjRxvUdex83CoF0_r5az7LACLcB/s1600/HLURp2k.jpg Good evening Summoners!!! Now, before we start, I want to point out that Im putting the effort of making this thread for the new players that have joined or recently joined League of Legends and generally dont have any clue of what´s going on or what´s **going to come**. So despite my poor methods of trying to explain the history of THE HARROWING, lets get on with it. ##- So, whats the Harrowing anyway? The Harrowing is Leagues Halloween as the name is self explanatory. Its that time of the year when our champions all over Runeterra dress up and put on spooooooky costumes, however, its also the time when in some places of Runeterra, The Shadow Isles leave their Island and INVADE orther regions such as Bilgewater (commun threat area). If you want to know more about that, [click here!](http://euw.leagueoflegends.com/en/site/shadow-and-fortune/) There is even a video if you want a summary! Grab your blanky if you are not a fan of spooky stuff! ######spoiler! not that spooky! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s2FFGBPXNeU Now, every year, the Harrowing is different (in theme) but its essentially the same thing but with certain twists. In the past Riot made icons that were unlocked by completing certain tasks, in other years they added game modes, and this year, Riot is bringing back an old game mode made specially for The Harrowing (Doom bots of Doom) So that´s technically it. If you guys want to check out previous Harrowing skins and Log in screens, Ill put them right here. Dont worry, I took the advice of a friend, and put the videos on separate lists for faster loading time :D ___ Harrowing 2010 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8h5dYMOgZlo (prices may vary, but they are mostly 975Rp) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DGPEuNpfEeQ&list=PLTzy8T3WHhRG5z_--hakldIwRv9i2_VQw ___ Harrowing 2011 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WoTKKVFk-Fs (Prices may vary, but its generally 975Rp or 1350Rp) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Bdv9LkXUsaM&list=PLTzy8T3WHhRHqO-XvCzWnU9PlQwFxQRVG ___ Harrowing 2012 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YrRFiowinFU (yes this was a Harrowing Login screen) (Prices may vary but its generally 975Rp or 1350Rp) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZyQyajWCiog&list=PLTzy8T3WHhREeePsIiLHxVx4THJbuc8wY ___ [Harrowing 2013](http://promo.na.leagueoflegends.com/en/harrowing/) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x602B0JRSBE While the Harrowing skin for 2013 werent legacy, Ill still show them https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hiZhFlT0wao https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yUVTppQTZ4U ___ [Harrowing 2014](http://promo.na.leagueoflegends.com/en/harrowing-2014/) Now, here is when Riot decided to make Harrowing different, they initially wanted to make a dramatic change, thankfully they didnt (it would have killed the event as a whole, "The Harrowing could happen at any time of the year". Imagine Leagues Halloween event during summer or spring, it just doesnt make sense. ANYWAY, starting from this year, Riot has started to make the Harrowing theme different. This one is based and focused around the Shadow Isles. (Worth hearing) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tm29vB0THXM Skins priced at 1350RP https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FN64bUiikX8&list=PLTzy8T3WHhRGG46LRkDi92UafZRjbUZL- ___ [Harrowing 2015](http://na.leagueoflegends.com/en/site/skins-zombie-slayer/) This years theme was based around Zombies. Like I said in the previous paragraph, Riot wanted to make changes, and so they did. By making the Harrowing less spooky. Initially it wasnt recieved well, however it did stand out by being the coolest. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D3wLN0l_7L4 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r-_fNivZXno Skins around 1350Rp https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n72V18Yz780&list=PLTzy8T3WHhRGe-wZixMXalw0oTwDQYbRA ___ Harrowing 2016 Here we returned to a much more "traditional" style of harrowing, in the sense that its more about the halloween theme rather than making it a Lore event or some sort of action apocalytic zombie thriller. This years theme is focused around witches and demons. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DtAV8FGjKR0 Skins around 1350Rp https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ebKBcrwvt5g&list=PLTzy8T3WHhRFC0RhwcikVJyWRWfGO8VOF ___ Skin wards (Each costs 640RP) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gXGbmH0v3_4 ___ ##That´s it folks!!! This was a little taste of what the harrowing is, now if you all excuse me, its time I flee!!! Cause Im being chased by.... #SPOOKY SCARY SKELETONS!!!! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q6-ZGAGcJrk
