League of Legends: How to Change Your Champ’s HP Color
Often times, the hardest part of being in a team fight in Riot’s League of Legends is determining where you are in the middle of the fray. Seriously, there are so many spell effects and abilities going off that it can just be a mess.
Luckily, there’s a tool that lets you change the color of your own health bar so that it stands out. The League of Legends Color Changer is a fan-made program that comes as both a Java file or an executable. To use it, download the League of Legends color changer here.
When you run the file, you’ll be presented with a list of options. Pick the corresponding element whose color you want to change. Normally, I play in color blind mode. I’m not actually color blind, but I find the blue versus red aspect of the color scheme to be quite useful in differentiating between teams. Feel free to change those too, if you wish.
In our case, we want to Choose own champion’s HP color.
You’ll then be presented with a variety of swatches. Pick the color that you want and hit the OK button, then follow up with the Save changes button. I recommend a bright color like yellow. It makes you stand out nicely among your team and the enemy team. This is really handy for me, since I main champions that typically are in the jungle. As I’m in the thick of things in a team fight, I end up being right in the middle of all the spell effects and it takes me a little longer to find out where I am in order to make the necessary plays, like diving or protecting the rest of my team.
Riot has gone on record stating that League of Legends Color Changer is legal and okay to use. The developers will also be attempting to implement their own ways of highlighting your champion in game, they’ve said.
Personally, I like the HP bar color change, myself. It’s a solid solution and is quite flexible. I’ve already been able to reposition myself much easier in team fights and find ways to dive into the enemy team. Disengaging from an engagement isn’t as much of a headache, either.
