New Skins

Nine new skins are now on the PBE, including Lunar/Solar Eclipse Leona, Coven Camille, Coven Lissandra, and five Pajama Guardians Variant skins! Here's I Am Carlos with more details   - Introducing Variants: Pajama Guardians & Solar and Lunar Eclipse Leona:
"Hello! Carlos here again to tell you about a few new skins that we are releasing this upcoming patch that are a little different than anything we have released so far. 
They are the Pajama Guardians skins and Legendary Solar and Lunar Eclipse Leona, which will ship on 8.23. 
Both of these sets of skins are a special kind of skin we’re calling a “Variant.” Basically, they give us more opportunities to creatively explore different theme, skin, and champion combinations, which we think is pretty awesome for our players and artists. 
What are the ‘Pajama Guardians’? 
Some of the Star Guardians got together and decided to have a sleepover! We’ll release a thrilling short story explaining how this all happened once they release. 
Variants have some similarities and differences from their counterparts, and we hope you’ll enjoy them. The Pajama Guardians bring all new models and textures as well as a new group splash. 
They were totally inspired by all the amazing fan art that came from players all across the world celebrating Star Guardian. We noticed there were a lot of variations from the original designs of the skins in these fan concepts, so we decided to make some variations ourselves and see what they turned out like. 
They will be priced at 1350 RP, but we want to reward the players who already own the original Star Guardian skins: Players who already own the original Star Guardian skin for a specific champion get a 30% discount on the corresponding Pajama Guardian variant. Likewise, if you don’t have a Star Guardian skin for one of these champions and you buy the Pajama Guardian first, you can get the Star Guardian variant at a 30% discount. 
We have a few more ideas for these types of skins that we’d love to create in the future, but give us your thoughts on how we can spice up your favorite skin with a unique twist. 
What about the Legendary Solar and Lunar Eclipse Leonas? 
We decided to make a Legendary skin for Leona themed around an eclipse. The two most visible and well-known types of eclipses are solar and lunar, and they were both interesting to explore for Leona given her lore. 
We started exploring both, and after exposing the concept to Leona players, they overwhelmingly agreed they wanted both. So, surprise, we made both! We then realized that the best way of releasing them was going for a similar concept to what we were already planning to do with the Pajama Guardians. 
The Leonas share an animation set (except for recall, which is unique for each of them) and have similar models, but they each feature a different set of VFX,a unique second form triggered by ulting, individual splashes, and additional VO lines that are unique for each form. 
We believe that each of these skins is a stand-alone Legendary, and we will follow the same 30% discount model for purchasing the second skin if you already own one of the variants. 
I really hope that you like getting two Legendaries instead of one for Leona. If this is something that you indeed like, we might explore doing something similar with future Legendaries when it makes sense. Any ideas? 
Any time we introduce new products or ways to get content, it’s really important that we get your feedback. If you have any questions or feedback please drop them in this thread for us. Thanks!
UPDATE: 
Hello again everyone! 
After considering your feedback and talking together as a team, we have decided to make a price adjustment to the Variants. 
PBE is always a forum for us to respond to your feedback. This is especially important when we’re trying out new products. 
We put a lot of thought into the 30% discount: including running player labs, number-crunching, and looking at the effort our artists put into the skins. We still believe in the value of these skins. That said, we hear you: 30% feels bad. So we’re changing it.
Both Eclipse Leonas and Pajama Guardian Variants will be discounted now at 45% if you own the other one. 
So, if you own one Eclipse Leona, the other will cost 1001 RP (2821 RP for both).
If you own one Star/Pajama Guardian, you’ll get its counterpart for 742 RP (2092 RP for both) 
Again, thanks for your feedback on this one. It matters, and we appreciate it."

Context & Notes

1) Here's Squad5 with details on Ornn changes coming to the PBE this cycle:
"Hey everyone, going to be pushing some medium scale Ornn changes to PBE for testing over the next few weeks that I'd like to get feedback from you all on. 
Ornn has had some balance issues over his time - he's been a frustrating lane opponent and consistent Pro pick for a while, at the same time maintaining a much lower win rate than you might expect given those facts. This changelist should hopefully meaningfully reduce those problems and let us bring up Ornn’s win rate for the average player. 
Let’s get into it. Disclaimer that none of these numbers are final, any numbers are the current values as I write this. 
Stats:
  • Ornn HP/level increased from 90-95
  • Ornn Armor/level increased from 3-4
P:
  • Removed: Ornn and his allies must purchase upgrades from the shop after Ornn reaches level 13.
  • New: When Ornn hits level 11 any upgradable items he currently owns or buys in the future will automatically become upgraded for no cost. For the next 4 levels after 11, each level will allow Ornn to upgrade an item for an ally (max 1 per ally) at no cost. 
Ornn must get close to his ally and click on them, which will cause him to forge his ally's item and replace it for them when he's finished. 
The intent of this change is for Ornn to be able to have multiple upgraded items, which coupled with some scaling base stat buffs should mean that Ornn is able to scale harder into the late game if he can purchase his items. Essentially think of Ornn as a gold accelerated character similar to Draven or Gangplank. The other benefit is that Ornn's allies should care a lot more about getting their items, since now they don't have to pay. 
Q:
  • Mana cost reduced from 55 to 45 at all ranks
Looking to make it less necessary for Ornn to buy multiple mana crystals early on. A common buy for experienced Ornn players is two mana crystals early on to make up for his high mana costs, but it isn’t obvious for less experienced Ornns. 
W:
  • Ornn's shield on using W is removed.
  • Ornn's W now grants him unstoppable for the duration.
  • W duration reduced from 1s to .75s
  • Brittle damage increased from 7%+.3% per level to 10% +.5% per level
  • Cooldown changed from 17/15/13/11/9 to 14 at all ranks 
Ornn's W currently is too much of an "I win" button - it allows him to win almost every trade and confuses enemies as to what their response should be when he presses the button. Looking to clarify for enemies that attacking Ornn when he uses W is a choice, as well as trying to get out of the way or move back to not get brittle proc'd. 
Replacing the shield isn’t intended to be a power equal trade, but it should give skilled Ornn players something to think about instead of blindly pressing W whenever possible, and should put more emphasis on Ornn proc’ing his brittle marks to win trades. 
E:
  • Mana cost changed from 50 at all ranks to 35/40/45/50/55
  • Knockup duration from 1s to 1.25s
R:
  • R1's slow now scales with the amount of time the R1 has existed for (min 10%).
  • R2's knock up duration now is decreased to 50% on subsequent targets after hitting an enemy champion. 
Ornn's R has been extremely powerful both as a pick spell and an AoE teamfight spell. Looking to make long range hitting R1 less powerful for picking off enemies, and I want to make enemy front liners feel better about getting in the way of Ornn's R. 
I’m going to be making some more changes soon, including making adjustments to what items Ornn’s passive can upgrade. Most likely you'll also see some more buffs depending on where his power read is. 
Thanks guys, I'll try to answer any questions that come up.
