New Hextech Crafting Components 

[UPDATE 7/19 Check out the 7/19 PBE UPDATE for details on the new crafting components, including what you need to buy to get what, what each cache contains, and more! ]

[NOTE: Doesn't look like these are fully enabled on the PBE yet as of 7/18!]

With the upcoming PROJECT skins, several new crafting components are being added to the hextech crafting them. Though these new components, you will be able to craft FIRST STRIKE icons for PROJECT: AsheEkko, and Katarina that unlock special loading screens!

[NOTE: PROJECT: Yasuo's special loading screen will be made available for those who own the skin and is not crafted.  The 2015 loading screens are NOT returning through this new crafting promotion.]

See the [New Hextech Crafting Components Announcement] for an overview

Here are the assets for the four new caches and the  PROJECT cores:

[UPDATE @ 10 AM PACIFIC on 7/19] The new chests were briefly available on the PBE! Each was set to the default testing price of 1 IP and 1 RP, granted 2 cores and a skin and/or champion shard. When you right click cores, you can combine X amount with a blue print to get a shard for a select PROJECT skin or the First strike icons!
