Champion Skins

Four new skins are now on the PBE for testing - Blackfrost Alistar, Rek'Sai, and Renekton plus Hextech Sejuani!

Blackfrost Alistar

[1350 RP]
"The mightiest of all minotaurs, Alistar once roamed the northern mountains freely… but when the endless winter came and blanketed his home in frost as dark as the heart of the Ice Witch herself, the fearsome behemoth fell prey to an eerie corruption—as his fur and bone twisted into pure, frozen malice."

Blackfrost Rek'Sai

[1350 RP]
"When the Ice Witch looked to the great glaciers of True Ice towering over the far north, she saw an army in the making. Among the first to be sculpted was Rek'Sai, a vessel of chilling savagery befitting a queen's power. Now, granted sentience by the will of the Watchers, she terrorizes domains with the brutal instincts of an apex predator."

Blackfrost Renekton

[1350 RP]
"In life, Renekton stood against the tyranny of the Ice Witch, fighting an inevitable, endless winter until his last breath. In death, the virtuous warrior was cursed with resurrection—brought back to life as a vicious warmonger cased in rock and ice. Now a general leading the onslaught of the Black Frost army, Renekton loyally serves the very queen he once thought to destroy."

Here's 6armedrobot with a bugs & feedback thread for Blackfrost Alistar, Rek'Sai, and Renekton:
"Hey Everyone! This is a collective bug and feedback post for 10.5 Blackfrost Alistar, Rek’Sai, & Renekton.

All skins are currently priced at 1350 RP.

Hextech Sejuani

[10 Gemstones]
"A merchant tycoon hailing from the top echelons of Piltovan society, Sejuani paved the way for the manufacture of hextech mounts. Often seen atop the back of her trusted stead, Bristech, she surveys the gilded streets of her magnificent city, always on the lookout to recruit young innovators who dare to push the boundaries of science and engineering."

Here's 6armedrobot with a bugs & feedback thread for Hextech Sejuani -
"A noble warrior who has harnessed Hextech technology to create her mechanical mount, Hextech Sejuani is charging into the Rift with
  • New model and textures harnessing Hextech technology!*
  • New VFX to dazzle her enemies!*
  • New SFX that reflects her battle prowess!*
  • New Recall that showcases her Hextech mastery!* 
Hextech Sejuani will be available to play on PBE! Remember to report back here with any bugs or feedback. And of course, if you have any questions, I’ll do my best to answer them. Cheers! 
Hextech Sejuani is currently set at 10 Gemstones.
