Voiceover & Lore

Rek'Sai's voiceover clocks in with over 7 minutes of terrifying and beastial sounds.

and here is Rek'Sai's in-client lore entry:
"The largest and fiercest of her species, Rek’Sai is a merciless predator that tunnels through the earth to ambush and devour her prey. Her insatiable hunger has laid waste to entire regions of the once-great Shuriman empire. Merchants, traders and armed caravans will go hundreds of miles out of their way to avoid these vast areas, though cunning bandits have been known to lure the unwary into her killing grounds. Once Rek’Sai detects you, your fate is sealed. There is no hope of escape; she is death from below the sand."

Release Skin

Eternum Rek'Sai

Here's Galetta with a bugs and feedback thread for Eternum Rek'Sai!
"Our Void Burrower has outfitted herself into a new set of steel armor, and learned from Nocturne what it means to be "Eternum." Here's what's new for this skin compared to her base:
  • New model
  • New tunnel model
  • Some new animations
  • New recall
  • All new Eternum red/electric particles
  • Eternum VO filter 
This skin will be 1350 RP. 
As always, feel free to leave your thoughts, opinions, bug reports and comments regarding Eternum Rek'Sai here! 
And when you hear the rumbling, beware the burrower."
