Sentinels of Light 2021 FAQ

For all the details on the Sentinels of Light event you didn't know you needed, check out the Event FAQ:
"The Sentinels have stood vigil against the Black Mist for a millennium, containing the corrupting clouds that threaten Runeterra's shores with each new generation. But while time has depleted their ranks, their undying enemies on the Shadow Isles have only grown stronger. Now their hidden war has spilled from the shadows and floods across the continent, the unending waves of darkness heralding their final test. 
The Ruined King has returned, and only the Sentinels can stop him. 
Come take the Oath of Light on July 8th, 2021 at 1:00 PM (PT), then battle Viego and his thralls until August 9th, 2021 at 11:59 PM (PT). Missions will start and stop on the same dates, but you’ll have until August 25th, 2021 at 1:00 PM (PT) to spend your Sentinels Tokens."

Champion Skins

Seven skins are now available:

Ruined Pantheon

1350 RP
"The Mist did not just subsume Atreus, but also resurrected the long-dead spirit of Pantheon: the old Aspect of War himself. With Atreus' stubborn defiance silenced, Pantheon can resume control and revel in battle once again. It doesn't matter to him whose banner he fights under. If that banner is the Ruined King's? So be it."

Ascended Pantheon Prestige Edition

2000 Event Tokens
"Pantheon was defeated once, but with all of Runeterra on the line now Atreus must defeat it himself. Seizing back control from the Aspect of War, Atreus harnesses the celestial power of Targon itself-- briefly becoming not just a vessel or an Aspect, but something new. Something immensely powerful and entirely his own."

Sentinel Diana

1350 RP
"The Ruination of Targon and the loss of the Aspect of War devastated the Rakkor tribes. But the only way to fight an Aspect's power is with another Aspect-- and so Diana takes up her blade as a member of the Sentinels, knowing that Viego would destroy everything the moonlight touches."    

Sentinel Irelia

1350 RP

Sentinel Olaf

1350 RP
"After a vicious encounter on the Freljordian front, Olaf is convinced to join the Sentinels to satiate his hunger for battle. Only then would he have the power to challenge Viego, the greatest threat the world has ever known, and satisfy his urge to fearlessly face death in glorious combat."

Sentinel Riven

1350 RP
"Riven joins the Sentinels hoping to atone for her role in the Noxian invasion of Ionia. After fighting her way out of a rapidly destabilizing Noxus Prime, she understands that her time may be fleeting. However, she believes her life is a small price to pay to make amends."

Sentinel Vayne

1820 RP (Legendary)
"Ever striving to become a better monster hunter, Vayne joins the Sentinels primarily to advance her own arsenal and learn from their battle with the Black Mist. It doesn't hurt that she is also defending Runeterra from evil, of course. If she must endure the friendship of a fool like Graves to do so, she will. The cause is worth it."

As a legendary skin, Sentinel Vayne has a new voiceover:
