High Noon Katarina

1350 RP
"My people got swindled. I aim to collect what we're owed," the Outsider says, pinning her dagger in a wanted poster of the Mechanical Devil. Her eyes burn like stoked coal as she fixes each dusty traveler in her gaze, "And I hear y'all plan on jumpin' the Sulfur Rail, Harbingers. If you're gonna take this devil down, I want in."

Here's Riot Eneopa with a bugs & feedback thread for High Noon Katarina:
Hello All!

High Noon Leona

1820 RP / Legendary
The Lady of House Solari lifts her chin against the scorching wind. Ahead lies her family's salvation: the Sulfur Rail, carrying the stolen family fortune, churning across the desert. The only thing that stands in her way is the Mechanical Devil himself. Her sword hums like cicadas in the gloaming. The butterflies gather. Time for the Harbingers to ride.

As a legendary skin, High Noon Leona has a new voiceover:

Here's Riot LavenderKira with a bugs & feedback thread for High Noon Leona:

High Noon Mordekaiser

1350 RP
Few meet the Mechanical Devil and live to tell the tale. They describe a behemoth: all steel and gears, fueled by hellfire and fierce enough to scare a man's soul from his skin. He is the King of the Sulfur Rail, reigning over the train to Hell from a throne of stolen gold and infernal iron. Eternal, and unassailable.

Here's RiotLavenderKira with a bugs & feedback thread for High Noon Mordekaiser:
"Hello All!

"I carve my kingdom beyond, from the ashes of nothing, no mortals, not even gods, will stop me from claiming what is mine."

High Noon Talon

1350 RP
"Fate is catchin' up to you, old friend," Talon says, leaning back in his chair, predator's eyes gleaming under the shadows of his hat. He still moves like a demon, even warped and corrupted by angel blood as he is. His smile, rueful and knowing, has too many teeth: "The end is comin' for us all."

Here's Riot Eneopa with a bugs & feedback thread for High Noon Talon:

High Noon Talon Prestige Edition

Devilishly handsome and wearing the latest in Western chic, Talon is equally ready to rock the runway or ride the open road. Those boots are made for walking, and he'll walk all over anyone standing in his way.
[No splash just yet!]

Here's Riot DW Platypus with a bugs & feedback thread for High Noon Talon Prestige Edition:
"You won’t survive.

High Noon Varus

1350 RP
Ain't nothin' for a dead angel to do but resign himself to grief. Varus was content to allow Mordekaiser to take him past the infernal gates themselves... Until a ragtag gang of thieves interrupted his mourning. Varus now picks up his bow once more, riding as a Harbinger. It's high time he got revenge for the massacre of Heaven.

Here's Riot Eneopa with a bugs & feedback thread for High Noon Varus:

Miscellaneous

"Hello, Summoners! 
With patch 12.9, we’ve added functionality to allow Yuumi’s recall animation to play even if she recalls attached to an ally. Previously, Yuumi’s recall anim would only be visible if she recalled unattached. The VFX ring will not appear if she recalls attached, as Yuumi is untargetable (same functionality as before.)
All skins should use their custom recalls, with the exception of Battle Principal, which should use Yuumi’s Classic recall when attached as the desk prop can obscure the ally she’s attached to. If Battle Principal Yuumi recalls unattached, she should still use her custom recall. 
If you could take a moment to play the skins on PBE and let us know if you encounter any issue with her recalls specifically, we would appreciate it very much! Thank you!"
