Champion Skins

Four new skins are now on the PBE for testing:

Arcana Camille

1350 RP
"Poised precariously above the city, on the edge of High Arcana, Camille's power comes from surprise and defying expectations. Her patterns seem confusing and alarming-- even perilous-- to those who cross her path, but they always resolve to her benefit. When burdened on the brink, Camille is at her strongest, but no one truly knows what she plans to use all that strength for..."
[While the splash art is not yet on the PBE, here's a peek from social media!]

Here's Riot Dead Thief with a bugs & feedback thread for Arcana Camille:

"Elegance never goes out of fashion." 
Arcana Camille is swinging onto the Rift with:
  • New models and textures!
  • New VFX!
  • New SFX!
  • New recall animation!
Arcana Camille is set to be 1350 RP. 
Arcana Camille will soon be available to play on PBE. We are excited that you are the first players to get your hands on her! Let us know what you think. 
Drop your feedback in the thread below!

Arcana Lucian

1350 RP
"Lucian believes in balance: that no one Archetype should have excessive influence on the world. With one gun amplifying patterns and the other canceling them out, Lucian maintains the world's fragile order within the new power vacuum-- even as the likes of Tahm Kench move to fill it."

Here's Riot 6armedrobot with a bugs & feedback thread for Arcana Lucian:
"Hello Everyone! 
Arcana Lucian is seeking balance on the Rift featuring:
  • New models and textures!
  • New VFX!
  • New SFX!
  • New Recall animation!
Arcana Lucian is set to 1350 RP and is available on PBE! 
Feel free to leave any feedback or questions you have down below!

Arcana Tahm Kench

1350 RP
"The epitome of power and opulence, Tahm Kench's power drips from his tongue. Its ornate patterns captivate and cajole his listeners. He leverages those he rules, staking his power to ensure the patterns always shift in his favor-- "correcting" his subjects who have gone astray."

Here's Riot 6armedrobot with a bugs & feedback thread for Arcana Tahm Kench:
"Hey All! 
Arcana Tahm Kench's alluring opulence is reverberating on the Rift featuring:
  • New models and textures!
  • New VFX!
  • New SFX!
  • New Recall animation! 
Arcana Tahm Kench is set to 1350 RP and is available on PBE! 
Feel free to leave any feedback or questions you have down below!

Arcana Xerath

1350 RP
"Ensnared by his own desires, Xerath leads citizens of Low Arcana to act on their basest urges. The more they are entranced by the forbidden, the more his power grows. But while Xerath believes their temptation will lead to his deliverance, he does not realize that the stronger he becomes, the more tightly his chains bind him."

Here's Riot 6armedrobot with a bugs & feedback thread for Arcana Xerath:

"Hello All! 
Arcana Xerath is enhancing his power on the Rift featuring:
  • New models and textures!
  • New VFX!
  • New SFX!
  • New Recall animation! 
Arcana Xerath is set to 1350 RP and is available on PBE!
