Champion Skins

Six new skins are now on the PBE:

Hextech Amumu

10 Gemstones
"A mechanical boy intended as a playmate for wealthy children, Amumu has been long forgotten in the advent of newer and more advanced Hextech innovations. But a child has feelings, and within his artificial mind something has begun to awaken that will change the history of Hextech forever."

Here's 6armedrobot with a bugs & feedback thread for Hextech Amumu:
"With the release of the latest Hextech BuddyBot™, poor Hextech Amumu is looking for a new home. Please be his friend! *Batteries not included. 
  • New model and textures - The saddest robot around has been given the full Hextech treatment. This little guy is seriously the cutest!
  • New Spell VFX - Throwing a Tantrum has never looked so good!
  • New SFX - Everything sounds so shiny!
  • New recall animation - Get ready with the sad face! His recall will make you feel all the feels! 
Hextech Amumu is now available on PBE! Remember to report back here with any bugs that occured or feedback that you have. And of course: if you’ve got any questions, I’m here for them, and you. 
Hextech Amumu is currently set at 10 gemstone (subject to change)"

Majestic Empress Morgana

1350 RP
"A feared sorceress queen from the heavenly kingdoms, Morgana looked on with disdain as Irelia sealed away the power of a dragon. Crushing her in combat, Morgana soon realized the young demigoddess had hidden that power away, and now ruthlessly searches for a way to return it to its rightful owner."

Here's KateyKhaos with a bugs & feedback thread for Majestic Empress Morgana:
"The trials I endured were seared into my soul, they drive me forward even after my wounds have healed.

*Prices on PBE are subject to change."

Splendid Staff Nami

1350 RP
"When the demigoddess Irelia was bested by a heavenly empress, the seal over Talon's draconic power began to weaken... allowing some of his magic to leak into the world. Once a mere fish who dreamed of being a dragon, Nami has received some of this power, and has found her true form beginning to awaken."

Here's KateyKhaos with a bugs & feedback thread for Splendid Staff Nami:

Valiant Sword Riven

1350 RP
"Riven trained with Morgana in the arts of politics and war for many years, but where Riven walked the path of justice, Morgana envisioned a world ruled by the gods alone-- ultimately defeating their master and assuming the title of empress. Now tasked with bringing her friend to heel, Riven must face Morgana in combat... or join her."

Here's Riot grumbojr with a bugs & feedback thread for Valiant Sword Riven:
"Valiant Sword Riven has been training for this moment. Will she finally reach transcendence? Or will she fall to the forces of darkness? Find out as she leaps her way onto the Rift, featuring:

Kai'Sa joins TFT in 9.19 and PBE now 

Here's Mortdog with details on Kai'Sa being added to TFT on the PBE!
"Class: Ranger & Assassin
Origin: Void
Ability: Kai’Sa dashes past the furthest enemy, gaining a shield and a lot of attack speed for a few seconds.
Cost: 5 
The next champion to be added to Teamfight Tactics is none other than the daughter of the void, Kai’Sa. She’ll be warping in as a Legendary 5 cost unit and opening quite a few new build possibilities since she is a Void Assassin Ranger! A triple hitter to enable more unique builds. She can be the carry in an end game Ranger & Brawler build, or a safer Assassin while you chase the 9 Assassin dream. Lots of possibilities. 
Kai’Sa’s base AD is lower, but she comes equipped with the highest base attack speed in the game. Perfect for stacking a Guinsoo’s or procing that Stattik Shiv as quick as possible in the end game. Her ultimate also allows her to jump around the map quickly and avoid dangerous situations. No longer are rangers locked into the corner! 
Kai’Sa comes with an additional change to the Void trait. We’re happy with the true damage as a counter to strong defense, but it’s a little too easy to get it going in the early game with 3 low cost units. Because of this we’re shifting Void to work like Imperial. 
(2): One of your Void units does true damage
(4): All of your Void units do true damage 
This should allow void to not quite be so dominate early, but still be a viable option to scale into late game. 
Look forward to Kai’Sa coming in patch 9.19, and give her a try on PBE today!"
