Champion Skins

Following their social media previews, the second set of Spirit Blossom skins have bloomed on the PBE - Spirit Blossom Ahri, Cassiopeia, Kindred, and Riven.

Spirit Blossom Ahri

1820 RP (Legendary)
"The famed Spirit of Salvation, and the fox all mortals are beckoned towards when their souls arrive to the spirit realm. A capricious, whimsical spirit who sees the fate of the living as a game of chase, she offers the chance for souls to find their final rest... but will not intervene if they stray from the path."


As a Legendary skin, Spirit Blossom Ahri has a new voiceover:


Here's Riot GrumboJr with a bugs & feedback thread for Spirit Blossom Ahri:

"Ahri leads the spirits of the dead through the afterlife to their final rest. While her role is to shepherd the departed, it is the soul's own decision to follow her... or wander from the path. 
Spirit Blossom Ahri is leading lost souls through the Rift, featuring:
  • New models and textures!
  • New VFX!
  • New SFX!
  • New animations and recall!
  • New VO!
Spirit Blossom Ahri is set to be 1820 RP. 
Spirit Blossom Ahri will be available to play soon on PBE! As players who get a first hand look at this upcoming content, we want to hear your thoughts! Drop your feedback in the thread below!"

Spirit Blossom Cassiopeia

1350 RP
"Rumored to have once been a beautiful princess, legend says Cassiopeia vanished into the mountains when her sister staged a coup, never to return. So great was her beauty, and so renowned her cunning, that a shrine was built to honor this 'spirit of temptation', until her story was accepted into popular folklore."
Here's Riot KateyKhaos with a bugs & feedback thread for Spirit Blossom Cassiopeia:
""Careful, now. I bite." 
Spirit Blossom Cassiopeia is hitting the Rift with:
  • New models and textures!
  • New VFX!
  • New SFX!
  • New recall animation!
Spirit Blossom Cassiopeia is set to be 1350 RP. 
Spirit Blossom Cassiopeia will be available to play soon on PBE! As players who get a first hand look at this upcoming content, we want to hear your thoughts! Drop your feedback in the thread below!"

Spirit Blossom Kindred

1350 RP
"In the Ionian tradition, the Kindred are interpreted as a child and her beastly companion, endlessly playing games with one another until they are called to perform their duties. The two do not know where they came from, but it is said they feel a sense of loss for someone they knew long ago..."
Here's Riot MoreChrono with a bugs & feedback thread for Spirit Blossom Kindred:
 
"They are not a dream. They are the waking. A new Kindred skin has arrived on PBE! 
Spirit Blossom Kindred is hitting the Rift with:
  • New models and textures!
  • New VFX!
  • New SFX!
  • New recall animation!
Spirit Blossom Kindred is set to be 1350 RP. 
Spirit Blossom Kindred will be available to play soon on PBE! As with all skins we are looking for feedback. Wherever it hides. In the shadows. In the daylight. Where the feedback lives, we will chase it down. But we would prefer if it was in the thread below."



Spirit Blossom Riven

1350 RP
"A brave warrior from an ancient land, Riven was ignobly cut down in the heat of battle thousands of years ago, her sword shattering in the process. Unable to find peace, she obsessively scours an otherworldly battlefield for pieces of her broken blade, possessed by a horrific darkness that guides her into oblivion."

Here's Riot MoreChrono with a bugs & feedback thread for Spirit Blossom Riven:

"If you are wondering “How should I proceed?”, the answer is: proceed to PBE and check out this new Riven skin! 
Spirit Blossom Riven is hitting the Rift with:
  • New models and textures!
  • New VFX!
  • New SFX!
  • New recall animation! 
Spirit Blossom Riven is set to be 1350 RP. 
Spirit Blossom Riven will be available to play soon on PBE! I know Riven can be a bit hard to catch, but she is susceptible to feedback so please leave any you have in the thread below!"

Context & Notes

1) Riot EggoMcLeggo commented on Spirit Blossom Ahri and the lack of a toggle for her forms:
"Hey all - to answer some questions Spirit Blossom Ahri does not have a toggle! Not having a toggle let us do a few things we really cared about for her: Making her ult form a bigger departure from her model than we could comfortably go for clarity reasons and keeping the consistency that all Ahri skins have a clear read when her ult is active. AND the full fox homeguard + recall, which felt like an awesome story and character moment we didn't want to sacrifice."
