Conqueror Alistar

975 RP [Scheduled 9.9 release during MSI!]
"The fusion of arcane sorcery and Piltovan ingenuity, Alistar is an advanced, living golem built by the finest artificers in Runeterra. Tasked with guarding the secrets of hextech, it crushes all who would abuse the methods behind its creation."

Here's Riot KiWiKiD with a bugs & feedback thread for Conqueror Alistar:
"Conqueror Alistar is ready for PBE Bugs and Feedback! 
This bad boy has conquered countless battlefields and now has MSI 2018 in his sights! Go forth and dominate with his: 
  • New model and textures - Plated armor built to last many battlefields
  • New spell VFX - Feel the golden flare of conqueror
  • New recall animation - Smashing through to obtain the trophy, classic Alistar. 
Conqueror Alistar is now available on PBE! Give him the battles you want to conquer and report back here with any bugs that occured or feedback that you have. Any questions are of course welcome as well, and I’ll do my best to answer as many as I can.

1820 RP (Legendary)

Galaxy Slayer Zed Special Interactions:

Full VO:

Non English VO:

Here's Riot LoveStrut with a bugs & feedback thread for Galaxy Slayer Zed:
"Zed was once a promising Templar, before he became host to the hivemind of ora and imbued with its alien essence. Able to morph his body into living weapons, he now sees himself as a perfect life form, deserving of all ora and destined to cleanse the galaxy of the weak. 
Spiky Specifics
  • New model and textures: Galaxy Slayer Zed utilizes ora to organically form living blades, tendrils, and armor. For the first time, he's also showing what he looks like beneath the armor and shadows.
  • New VFX: Ora-infused power strengthens his abilities, as well as his shadow's.
  • New SFX and VO lines: Sharp, deadly audio enhances his gameplay, while new VO processing and lines give insight into Zed's new life, imbued with ora.
  • New animations: Every animation has been changed with tons of extra spikes, blades, and abs incorporated into his animations.
Galaxy Slayer Zed is now available on PBE! We always love hearing your feedback and feelings! All bug reports and thoughts help us make these skins even more awesome, so please keep 'em coming! 
Thanks, cuties! <3"
