Champion Skins

Five new skins are now on the PBE for testing!


Marauder Kalista

1350 RP*
"The Magelords... furious, brutal, and glorious in their conquest-- a sect of warriors long lost to the sands of time. Until now. Resurrected by the current Marauder leaders, Kalista's desire for vengeance has only festered over the millenia. Now she returns, more powerful than ever, to eradicate the Wardens and everything they've built."
[More skin images when available on the PBE!]


Here's Riot DW Platypus with a bugs & feedback thread for Marauder Kalista:
"Hey everyone! 
Marauder Kalista, woke up by Marauder leaders, is now looking for vengeance on the Wardens with:
  • New models and textures!
  • New VFX!
  • New SFX!
  • New Recall!
Marauder Kalista should be available on PBE already! Feel free to leave any feedback or questions you have so far down below! 
Cheers!

Marauder Kled

1350 RP*
"Throughout history, the Marauders have balanced on the knife's edge between brutality and cunning. General Kled, one half of the pair that currently leads the regime, is truly the incarnation of their historic brutality... and little more. If it weren't for Xin Zhao, Kled would bet everything on a final, bloody, battle."
[More skin images when available on the PBE!]


Here's Riot DW Platypus with a bugs & feedback thread for Marauder Kled:
"Hey everyone! 
Marauder Kled, has some problem with his violent tendencies again and is going to show up for the battle with:

Riot DW Platypus"


Marauder Xin Zhao

1350 RP*
"Though brutal, the Marauders still follow a martial order established during the era of the Magelords. These commanders seek only to reclaim the might with which their order once ruled. Xin Zhao is one half of the pair of current leaders. Pragmatic and measured, he has resurrected an ancient Magelord to destroy his foes once and for all."

Warden Gragas

1350 RP*
"The Wardens are a sect of those who choose to don the armor of the Protectorate. Wardens hale from all corners of the world; so long as one holds fast to one's pledge, then one is a Warden. Gragas found purpose in this calling, and found camaraderie in his fellow Wardens, who welcomed him-- all of him-- with open arms."

Here's Riot KiWiKiD with a bugs & feedback thread for Warden Gragas:
"Hey all! 
Warden Gragas is barreling into PBE with:
  • New models and textures!
  • New VFX!
  • New SFX!
  • New Recall! 
Warden Gragas is set to be 1350 RP and is now available on PBE! Please leave any feedback or questions you have here! 
Cheers 
Riot KiWiKiD"

 

Warden Quinn

1350 RP*
"The Protectorate of old gained its power from bonds: bonds between comrades, bonds to armor, bonds to its edicts. Quinn follows in the footsteps of her ancestors, having forged a bond with a familiar she has named Valor, in honor of the Protectorate's central tenet."
(splash not yet on PBE, check out the PBE preview of it here!]

Here's Riot KiWiKiD with a bugs & feedback thread for Warden Quinn:
"Hey all! 
Warden Quinn is swooping into PBE with:
  • New models and textures!

  • New SFX!
  • New Recall! 
Warden Quinn is set to be 1350 RP and is now available on PBE! Please leave any feedback or questions you have here!

Context & Notes

1) Riot Kami Banani noted the content on the PBE would be on for an extended time due to winter holidays coming up:
"[PBE] It's that time again, folks! I'll be your release manager for 11.1. This patch will be shipping to live in early 2021, so it'll be on PBE a little longer than usual with the holidays. See you Soon™️!"

2) Riot KateyKhaos noted that missing particles on Elderwood Rakan and Xayah were being looked at and had been restored:

[1] ".@Beardilocks and I are looking into if Elderwood Xayah and Rakan's hearts were removed intentionally or not. Will update y'all soon! 

If it wasn't intentional, a fix won't be in until at least 11.1!"
[2] "@Beardilocks is a beast and fixed it!!"

3) KateyKhaos also noted upcoming changes to Battle Queen Katarina's walk animations:

[1] "Hey everyone!

An update to the much anticipated BQ Katarina run animations:

We went through your feedback and took time to understand what changes needed to be made to make BQ Katarina feel unique and on par with our legendary skins. 

Here's what we changed (thread):

[2] Note: All changes will be in patch 11.1 and WILL NOT be in the game when the content goes live in 10.25. This is to ensure the content is both hooked up properly and tested thoroughly.

[5] "These will be the final animation changes to this skin, and will be on PBE soon. As always, appreciate the feedback. 

- The Battle Queen Katarina team"
