Would you buy a skin, just for the splash?

Some skins' splashes are just amazing.

Don't get hit. Hit it 'till it dies. Don't get greedy.

No that'd be stupid, you see the splash for 2 out of 45 minutes you use them each time, and then I usually afk or tab while loading so even less time seen

No but there are times I wouldn't want to use a skin I own because the splash art is UGLY. Like the Sorceress Lux, I had it for a long time and the current splash art is UGLY (I tend to use Spellthief the most, as I find it her best skin by comparison) but I am sooooo glad they are finally replacing the grandma cosplayer art with the gorgeous Chinese art.

Now, if only they replace the current Spectacular Sivir with the Chinese art. Then I'll be extra happy.

No, but if a skin has a terrible splash art then I likely won't buy it *coughcurrentSorceressLuxcough*. I won't buy a skin strictly for the splash art.

the splash is definately an influential factor if i've never seen the skin before, but it's never the sole reason i buy a skin. sometimes i know what the skin looks like ahead of time, sometimes i simply need to complete my collection, , there is a plethora of reasons why i buy skins, and yes, good Splash does play a factor

Nope. I think my Pharoah Nidalee states the opposite.

Splash looks like trash, model looks good.

Chinese splash art on the other hand, looks epic.
