Elementalist Lux Login Theme

As the skin continues testing this cycle, a login theme for Elementlist Lux is now on the PBE - the theme starts in the light form art and cycles through fire and water before looping back to light!

  

All-Star 2016 Team Icon In-Game Effects

As you may recall, new 2016 All-Star summoner icons were added for TEAM FIRE and TEAM ICE in a patch earlier this cycle! These icons are now up for testing and equipping them enables temporary in-game emotes as well as unique recall stamp similar to the Worlds 2016 icons!
