10/4 PBE Update: Championship Riven, Victorious Janna, and more!

Posted on at 5:02 PM by Moobeat
An update has been deployed to the PBE servers!
Continue reading to see the new Riven and Janna skins, a text based reveal of three upcoming skins,  and a full preview of the Twisted Fate visual update.


( NOTE: Please remember everything on the PBE is tentative and subject to change. )

This PBE patch included two new skins - Championship Riven, a skin commemorating the close of Season two that will be available after the conclusion of the World Finals, and Victorious Janna, a skin awarded to players who finish season two with a gold rating or higher in ranked.

Championship Riven 



 Victorious Janna


There were also a few skins in one of the client files, but no resources were present. Two of them, Dynasty Xin Zhao and Dynasty Jarvan IV, we already know about but iBlitzcrank  is brand new! Hopefully we'll see a bit more of them in the near future.

Dynasty Xin Zhao
Dynasty Jarvan IV
iBlitzcrank

The recently announced Twisted Fate visual update, as well as a full set of updated skins, made it's way into this PBE update .
Default Skin


Jack of Hearts Twisted Fate

 
Tango Twisted Fate


Magnificent Twisted Fate

High Noon Twisted Fate


PAX Twisted Fate

Musketeer Twisted Fate


Additionaly, Twisted Fate's updated voice overs feature a few new dialogue lines that trigger when he stuns his lore nemesis, Graves.
He alternates between "Tough Luck Malcom", "Simmer down hotshot", and "Dead in his tracks". It seems Graves also appears to have a special dialogue, but none of these are tied together and aren't available in game just yet.

    1. You cant buy it, theses skins are both awards, you can get Riven's skin by watching season 2 championship's stream.
      Janna's skin is a reward for gold+ players.

      Delete
    2. No.. you dont get riven's skin from finals stream, what you get it a summoner icon

      Delete
    3. You can buy Riven during the championships. Only given away to people ATTENDING. The Icon is free on the stream.
      Janna is for gold or higher players

      Delete
    4. free on the stream? how do i get it?:O

      Delete
    5. i'm pretty sure they said the riven one will be available to buy, unless they change their mind

      that's where i read it

    6. Yes, you can buy the skin, brah.
      Just that, if you go to the finals, you get it for free. o 3o

      Delete
    7. The riven skin you can buy and i think the janna one as well you just have to buy it.

      Delete
    8. Dammit I want that janna skin but I'll never make gold by the end of the season. Especially since It's useless to play ranked on any day the tournament is active since everyone good is watching.

      Delete
    9. So if the good aren't playing, u got a better chance since u will be with "9 baddies" that u can beat them easily if u're thta "good" like u think... Dream on baddie.

      Delete
    10. Just to clarify - the Janna one won't be available for purchase; it's the S2 equivalent of Victorious Jarvan IV, it's for Gold, Platinum and Diamond ranked players. The Riven skin WILL be sold, the finals page explicitly states that for one weekend that follows the finals (not necessarily the one immediately following the finals) and one weekend only, the skin will be in the store; however, you get it early and for free as part of your finals "goodie bag" if you attend. The summoner icon is also free and it'll be unlocked via a code you enter on the web (they stated on the forums it won't be entered in the client like a promo code) that's given out during the stream of the finals.

      Also - to The Physicist: If all the good people are watching and you're fairly good, doesn't that make your chances of winning about the same as normal? All the bad people will still be playing but they're going to be your opponents too, so as long as you're good enough, you can lead your team to some wins :P

    11. No free skin like Judgement Kayle? Yeah, way to repay player loyalty. :(

  6. PLEASE NO 1800 RP RIVEN

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. doubt it, but it may be at the new 1450 price point

      Delete
    2. They wont sell it for 1450 RP, if kha'zix's skin have this price it's cause it represent a great work (due to the evolution/isolated mechanism etc...).

      Delete
    3. Why would that Riven skin be 1800?? I've seen tons of new skins better than that one & are priced 975. These kids...

      Delete
  7. Janna wearing full article of clothing? This is madness!

    ReplyDelete
  8. dfjsdfh I'm never going to get 1500 for that Janna skin. T___T It's so beautiful. I'm so sad now.

    3. The new skin looks nice, but dynamics suck. He seem to move really really slow, his whole animations are slow as hell.

    1. isn't it called 'Dynasty Jarvan'?

    1. I really like the Musketeer skin currently. Hate the way the updated model looks for it. :/

  14. Riot, you should get into the denim business... My pants will never be the same again...

  15. kinda wish Riven looked more like a chick from Claymore but I can dig it.

    Janna well....I'll stick to Frost Queen

  16. @Moobeat What about the censored images also in the PBE?

  17. glad janna got another skin. she looks amazing!

  18. The legendary Twisted Fate Skin has been remade too? They said they won't do it! I'm glad they decided otherwise :) Thx Riot ^^ Awesome Work!

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. they just remade the model; no new particle effects (well, that aren't on classic) or voice acting.

      Delete
    2. also, they said they'd remake the model, just not update it to current Legendary standards.

      Delete
  19. TF's eyes are staring into my soul...

  20. I wish Riven had her usual Silver/White hairs...

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I wish they kept Riven's darker skin. She seems too pale in the picture and video preview. It is not Riven without the tan skin. Just my opinion so do not hate on me.

      Delete

  22. Oh man, both Riven and Janna's new skins feel magnificent. <3 Totally buying Riven's skin and Victorious Janna if I were gold. :( #wishesIwasgold

    ReplyDelete
  23. Anybody else notices that Riven sword's shadow has a different shape to go with it's shadow?, the the sword is flat, like this ] and the shadow is pointy >

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. well, that's cause the skin isn't finished yet. It's pointed when the Ulti isn't activated, so that's the default shadow. It will probably be fixed soon

      Delete
  24. Wish they made the sword pointy and not flat when in ulti mode, just tried it on PBE and it kinda sucks cause of that...

    ReplyDelete
  25. Victorious Janna? So that's not War Hero Janna?

  42. Anyone else a little annoyed that we aren't getting a free skin for this season? I mean it could be one for one of the 450 champs for all I care I would just like one to show riots support to the rest of us for an awesome year.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. i guess it was more special and meaningful to give ppl a free skin in season 1. Since u could call these ppl veterans whatsover.. :D but i agree, i started playin seriously in season 2, and i kinda hope would get free skin aswell. as season1s got kayle skin ^^

      Delete
  43. the background for both Riven and Janna seem similar.
    Could it be a sneak peek for a new map? ;)

  48. I'm only 1200 ELO now, is it possible to get to 1500 before the 14th so I can get Janna? She's my main champion! :(

  49. Riven looks like a dude in that splash :/

    But IG it really looks great, not sure if buy.

    ReplyDelete
  50. OMG why do champs with plenty of skins keep getting new ones ... so over all the Riven, Teemo and TF skins ... Where are some skins for LB, Voli and Varus :(
    Dammit riot get your stuff together

    ReplyDelete
  51. I worked my way up from 1098 to 1502 for that Janna skin, and all i have to say is...It's pretty awesome!

    ReplyDelete
  52. I had high expectations for Riven's new skin, and I'm quite disapointed... what's with the silly "II" everywhere. The blade looks ugly both in normal and in ult modes, the shield is silly. The 'Q' effects and the ult cone are the only things looking good... maybe the w too.
    2/10 will not buy.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. That's your opinion. I feel this is her best looking skin, outside of people who want Battle bunny fanservice (which I personally don't like).

      Delete
    2. It doesnt take much common sense to realize that the II symbols mean Season 2.

      Delete
    3. He didn't say he didn't understand what "II" meant, he said its silly looking. I agree, the kayle skin giveaway didn't have 1s all over it, the Roman numerals look really tacky, especially on the aura.

  69. MY RP IS READY FOR THAT DYNASTY XIN AND CHAMPIONSHIP RIVEN :D

    ReplyDelete
  70. well i just tested it on the PBE and as a player that mains TF for about 2 years here is my thoughts about it:

    Run animation - doesnt feel right
    Wild Cards - Cards are too small and the new particles makes it a bit underwhelming
    Pick a card - u did a great job here but some extra effect on blue card would be fine :P
    Loaded deck - its ok ...
    Destiny - the new eye effect is awesome
    Gate - personally the old gate particles + spining cards under TF were a bit better
    Atack animation - its ok...
    Character remodel - feels really updated nothing to point out here.

    Overall...i was really excited for the remodel and it seems like the everyone found it really awesome as it is! i dont know if they tested it already but i was expecting something a bit better!

    here is my 2 cents.

    Keep up the good work riot.
