Champion Skins

Six new skins are now on the PBE for testing!

Battle Academia Caitlyn

1820 RP (Legendary)
"A feared and respected second year, head of the Luminary Club, and class president of Labrys God-Weapon Academy. Caitlyn enrolled herself in the famously troubled school specifically to whip the delinquents there into prime fighting shape, hoping to one day become the greatest battlefield general in history. With her perfect record, she's not too far off."
[KateyKhaos on how to transform gun: "You acquire one item (boots don't count), and once you leave the fountain you will trigger the stage 2 transform. Upon acquiring your third item, when you leave the fountain, you will trigger the last stage."

As a Legendary skin, Battle Academia Caitlyn has a new voiceover:

Battle Academia Garen

1350 RP
"'Brother' to Lux, Garen is the only biological child of his family, but was neglected from an early age as his parents spent all their time developing the god-weapon fragment that would one day become their daughter. As he vented his anger in increasingly delinquent ways, Labrys sought him out for enrollment, where he eventually joined the Battle Club."

Battle Academia Leona

1350 RP
"An oddly cheery member of Labrys Academy's Battle Club, Leona's dark side comes out in combat, when her motherly, protective persona is utterly replaced by bloodlust. The change is so dramatic that even the most violent students tend to stay on her good side, hoping to avoid her wrath."

Battle Academia Leona Prestige Edition

100 Prestige Points
"After being selected for the yearly cross-academy tournament, Leona sharpened her combat prowess almost every free moment she had, knowing she had to beat out other top-ranking students from rival schools like Durandal, Babylon, Amrita, and Sharur. Her bloodlust now honed and her shield at the ready, she will pummel anyone who challenges her into a meaty pulp."
[Look for images when skin is available in store!]

Battle Academia Wukong

1350 RP
"A consummate troublemaker and prankster, Wukong has failed out of every high school in the region, eventually washing out into Labrys as an 'enrollment of last resort'. A naturally gifted fighter in the Battle Club, he still hasn't learned discipline, and only listens to Caitlyn because she can beat him up."
[Look for images when skin is available in store!]

Battle Academia Yone

1350 RP
"Yone is a brooding, quiet member of the Assassin Club, one whose morose and serious attitude belies the colossal chip on his shoulder. The bad blood between him and his brother is well known, and even speaking about it casually has been known to invoke Yone's fury-- something Caitlyn has picked up on for her own purposes."
