Riot has revealed the upcoming Vel’Koz skin, Bee’Koz, which will be released on patch 13.22.
Alongside the larger and more extensive skin lines, we have also seen Riot release some smaller ones. Some of the notable ones they have released this year are Snow Moon, Astronaut, Heartache & Heartthrob, Cats & Dogs, Cafe Cuties, and many more. And the next smaller skin line that Riot will release is the Bees skin line.
Bees skin line was initially released in 2017 with the release of Beekeeper Singed. In this skin line, champions are reimagined as either a bee or a beekeeper. Till now we have seen skins like Bee’Maw, Yuubee, Beezahar, etc. They are a fan favorite among the community. Moreover, during the 2022 Bees skin line release all the revenue generated from this skin line was donated to humanitarian relief efforts in the Russian Russo-Ukrainian War.
In 2023, Riot is releasing the newest iteration of the Bees skin line. Additionally one of the skins is the Bee’Koz skin for Vel’Koz.
Vel’Koz is an artillery mage released in League of Legends in 2014. He can be played in both mid-lane and support. Even though artillery mages are designed for long-range combat, he excels at all ranges. Since his release, Vel’Koz only received 5 skins. And the bee skin will be his upcoming skin.
In Bee’Koz, Vel’Koz isn’t really a monster. Instead, there is a small bee controlling a robot that looks like Vel’Koz. Moreover, the spell VFX is really amazing as it is a mix of honeycomb and honey. The ultimate effect is probably the best as Vel’Koz beams out honey, which looks amusing. Overall, this skin is one of the best skin in Vel’Koz’s arsenal.
