Hi-Rez has been killing it lately on the God skins, and as soon as I saw Such Cold Skadi, I knew I had to have it. Skadi + Doge?? I die. Of course, they put it in a chest and I had to roll for it. Lucky for me, I already owned the majority of the things in the chest. I had about 9 rolls remaining to have obtained the entire chest, and what do you know — I had to use every single one of them to get the Such Cold skin. Every. Single. One. But I digress.
First off: Look at this loading screen.
I mean. Really.
Skadi’s Permafrost move is now a lovely shade of pink, and her basic attacks have a magical glittery sound.
Doge Kaldr is so great. I love the fact that he’s pink when inactive (in Elemental mode) and turns into the classic Shiba doge brown once he’s been sent off to attack (in Beast mode). As much as I love the skin, though — I think it might still come in second to the Ski Patrol skin. The voice pack for that skin is fantastic, and the giant St. Bernard is just cuddly and adorable. Also, I actually prefer Kaldr barking, rather than talking. Talking, you say? Why yes, this Kaldr actually talks back.
Here’s a match where I played this fancy new skin (it’s a game of the day (Shooting Range on the Joust map) which is why we’re all hunters).
Spoiler alert, we lose. 😡
