"This is just the beginning. Welcome to RiotX Arcane.  


RiotX Arcane Cross Game & Platform Celebrations

Here's an article from the Riot Games site with a detailed rundown on all the celebrations during the event:
"RiotX Arcane is the celebration of a lot of things including the release of Arcane, games, and the moments that bring us together. 
But really, this celebration boils down to you. 
The solo queue player who can’t end on a loss. The pro warming up backstage. The creator theorycrafting for hours. The cosplayer staying up all night getting their Atlas Gauntlets just right. Yes, you. 
Over the years, you’ve created a space for us to bring the characters you love to life in new and exciting ways. And over the next few weeks, we'll be imbuing the magic of Arcane into games, live events, surprise collaborations and, of course, awesome rewards. 
Join us to celebrate the launch of our biggest exploration yet. After all, it just wouldn't be a party without you. 
EVENTS 
So let’s start at the beginning. RiotX Arcane is broken into three parts that follow along with the themes of the show: 
League World Finals and Arcane Premiere Super Weekend
November 6 
Joining forces with Worlds, League’s biggest moment of the year, we're making it a double feature on November 6. It all starts with Worlds Finals, where there will be an Arcane-themed Show Open presented by Mastercard, featuring music straight from Arcane. We’ll continue into the Global Premiere, hosted live on Twitch, and co-streamed by your favorite streamers, with watch rewards across all of our games. 
Worlds Show Open begins on November 6th at 5:00 AM PT and features musical performances from Imagine Dragons, Bea Miller, JID, and Denzel Curry.
Arcane’s Global Premiere kicks off on Twitch on November 6th at 5:30 PM PT.
Progress Days
November 7 - November 13 
We continue on with Progress Days, a Piltovan celebration of progress and innovation across our entire ecosystem. Following what we hope is a bombastic premiere, we invite you to jump into all of our games where even more content will be going live to tide you over until Act 2 launches on November 13th. 
Undercity Nights
November 14 - November 20 
We head into our finale weekend with a deep-dive into Zaun and a celebration of our community at our Undercity Nights event, held both in-person and online. We’re really excited to end this event with a bang worthy of the Undercity, so stay tuned for more information.

"In order to streamline Caitlyn's future development when it comes to her visuals, skins, and overall cohesion, we've given the Sheriff of Piltover an Art and Sustainability Update (ASU)! But, what does that mean? Keep an eye out for:

  • Adjustments to two of her skins outside of those that were updated
  • Updates to some of Caitlyn’s base, Pool Party, and Lunar Wraith chromas

We've also made small VFX updates to the in-game models for Jinx and Jayce. On top of his VFX, Jayce has also received minor SFX updates as well.

Ultimate Spellbook — now Ult-ier than ever!
We all know just how much players have wanted Ultimate Spellbook to come back after its massive debut success a few months ago. Believe us, we wanted it back too! But as incredible as its first run was, it also had its challenges and lessons. But the busy devs back in our workshop have been polishing and tinkering away ever since. It's enough to make a Heimerdinger proud! Now the wait is finally over. Ultimate Spellbook returns with a vengeance starting (Patch 11.23) November 18, 2021 at 1:00 PM PT to January 10, 2022 at 11:59 PM PT. 
  • Ultimate Spellbook, Into the Arcane edition, has pulled out all the stops! Here are some of the highlights:
