The Harrowing Promotional Page

As with all events, we have a new promotional page showing off all of this year's Harrowing content, complete with a creepy Shadow Isles aesthetic!
"The Black Mist rolls over land and sea, seeking the living—leaving them helpless to the half-glimpsed horrors it carries. The poor souls return with the mist to the Shadow Isles. In time, they’ll forget friends and lovers, even themselves, becoming part of the terrible force that grows stronger every year."

The promo page also features a new video "Tales of the Black Mist: The Harrowing"

"A ghastly puppet show recounts a familiar tale in Bilgewater, but tonight the fog’s come down especially thick..."

New Skins - Ravenborn LeBlanc and Underworld Wukong

First up, the start of the Harrowing includes the release of two new skins - Ravenborn LeBlanc and Underworld Wukong, both of these skins will only be in the shop through November 4th then will head back into the legacy vault with the rest of the Harrowing content!

Ravenborn LeBlanc

975 RP
From the Ravenborn LeBlanc invades the Abyss release announcement: 
"Cloaked in ebon feathers, a figure glides through the black mist, ghostly tendrils recoiling before every step. The raven atop her staff quavers. A shriek pierces through the vapor, halting Ravenborn LeBlanc. Her dark lips break into a malicious grin. The Black Mist looms.
Enslave the shadows with Ravenborn LeBlanc, available now for 975 RP before going into the legacy vault on November 4th"

and her R's mimic version of the spells are all purple!

 Underworld Wukong

1350 RP; on sale for 975 RP through October 28th
From the Underworld Wukong explores the Darkness release announcement:
"The black mist grasps at Underworld Wukong, clinging to his staff as he explores the Shadow Isles. A circlet holds back his mane of wild hair to reveal gleaming emerald eyes. His bladed tail swats away a particularly annoying tendril of vapor as Wukong chuckles softly to himself. He twirls his staff and prances further into the darkness.
Traverse the abyss with Underworld Wukong, available now in the League of Legends store for 1350 RP (on sale for 975 RP through October 28), before going into the legacy vault on November 4th"

Hexakill: Twisted Treeline

This Harrowing also has us venturing back to the Shadow Isles for our latest featured gameplay mode, HEXAKILL: TWISTED TREELINE!
"Hexakill doubles the number of champions on the Twisted Treeline. Bringing twelve champions to League’s most close-quartered map ensures intense gankery and more than a few opportunities to net yourself a coveted hexakill. We’ve bumped up gold and experience rewards across the map and controlling both altars now buffs you as well as your minions. Claustrophobes—and arachnophobes— need not apply. Welcome back to the Twisted Treeline."

Here's the Hexakill: Twisted Treeline FAQ From Riot's Support:
What map does Hexakill take place on?
  • Hexakill is currently only available on Twisted Treeline in celebration of The Harrowing.
How many players can play in a Hexakill game?
  • Hexakill doubles the number of champions on the Twisted Treeline. Twelve champions (six on each team) will face off in League's most close-quartered map to ensure intense gankery and more than a few opportunities to net yourself a coveted hexakill.
What changes have been made to the gameplay?
  • We’ve bumped up gold and experience rewards across the map and controlling both altars now buffs you as well as your minions.
What do I get for playing Hexakill?

This year's Harrowing also features FLASH SALES of any potentially any champion skin that will rotate every six hours.
"In an unprecedented phantasmic phenomenon, a group of skins’ regular prices are reduced for six hours before resetting in favor of a new slate of skins. Early research into ectoplasmic evidence has yet to uncover a way to predict which skins will go on sale--or even the discount rate. All we know for sure is that skins go on sale for six hours at a time and then it happens all over again. Happily, you can check the “On Sale” box in the skins tab of the Store to see what skins are on tap. 
Disclaimer: Riot won’t be held responsible for the actions of ghosts so we aren’t offering retroactive refunds for these sales."
WizardCrab has also confirmed that these sales will only be for skins that could normally be on sale and will not include legacy, legendary, or ultimate skins.

During the Harrowing, Mystery Gifting has also been tuned to offer twice the chance at any of the skins from above!
"The Mystery Gift swirls with every skin of Harrowing’s past and present! Better yet, Harrowing content bursts out of the chest at a 2x rate!"
