Eleven skins are now on the PBE for testing!

Lunar Beast Alistar

1350 RP
"The leader of Ox Clan, Alistar keeps his stubborn squad in line with his reliability and gruff approval. A bit quick to anger with some squad members' bull-headedness, he's determined that nothing and no one will derail this Lunar New Year festival, or Ox Clan's plan to make it a flawless celebration."

Here's Riot DW Platypus with a bugs & feedback thread for Lunar Beast Alistar:

Lunar Beast Aphelios

1350 RP 
"Aphelios stays quiet, preferring to worship the Bull God according to obscure "old ways" that are unfamiliar to the rest of his squad. His teammates are welcoming, if curious, but have yet to realize that Aphelios and his sister Alune are actually the Bull God's progeny, placed among the squad to face this year's Lunar Beast."


Here's Riot Deaf Thief with a bugs & feedback thread for Lunar Beast Aphelios:

Drop your feedback in the thread below!"

Lunar Beast Darius

1350 RP
"Darius' imposing presence and determination to lead by example cause occasional tension between him and Alistar, the actual leader of the squad. Despite how overbearing he can be, Darius is a strong and steadfast friend to his teammates and a rock for the whole Clan."

Here's Riot DW Platypus with a bugs & feedback thread for Lunar Beast Darius:

Lunar Beast Jarvan IV

1350 RP 
"Jarvan IV's stubborn refusal to join Ox Clan only relented to his father's stubborn insistence. Though he tries his best to shirk the celebrity status that comes with the role, Jarvan comes from a long line of philanthropists, and has found himself caught up in the thrill of bringing businesslike efficiency to the biggest community event of the year."


Here's Riot DW Platypus with a bugs & feedback thread for Lunar Beast Jarvan IV:
"Who dares defy my will?

Lunar Beast Fiora

1350 RP
"Fiora keeps mostly to herself, determined to reclaim her family's honor from her father's failure as a member of the last Ox Squad. She thinks the rest of the squad doesn't take their duties seriously enough, and her determination to avoid another disastrous New Year makes her seem standoffish and cold to her teammates."

Here's Riot DW Platypus with a bugs & feedback thread for Lunar Beast Fiora:

"Strike quickly, strike deftly. 
Lunar Beast Fiora comes with: 
  • New models and textures!
  • New VFX!
  • New SFX!
  • New Recall!

  • New VFX!
  • New SFX!

Riot DW Platypus"

Crystal Rose Swain

1350 RP
"Swain knows how important the alliances formed at the Festival of the Crystal Rose are... and how fragile. His determination to see the event go perfectly has gained him a connection with Zyra, the Rose's protector. With her help, he intends this to be the most successful festival ever-- and that he will be celebrated as its architect."

Here's Riot 6armedrobot with a bugs & feedback thread for Crystal Rose Swain:
"Hello Friends!

Crystal Rose Zyra

1350 RP
"Born from a cutting of the Crystal Rose, Zyra wields her piercing thorns against any who seek to harm it. For this year's festival, she has agreed to attend in a social capacity, accompanying Swain as the Crystal Rose Festival's dual hosts. But her respect for his vision will not distract her from springing into action at the slightest hint of danger."

Here's Riot 6armedrobot with a bugs & feedback thread for Crystal Rose Zyra:
 
"Hello Friends! 
Crystal Rose Zyra is pruned and ready for the Rift featuring:
  • New models and textures!
  • New VFX!
  • New SFX!
  • New Recall animation!

Withered Rose Syndra

1350 RP 
"Syndra has been shunned from the festival for years over her support of the disgraced Zed. Unable to bear this slight any longer, she is determined to infiltrate the event and poison the very heart of the Crystal Rose itself with her sweetly dripping ichor."

Here's Riot KiWiKiD with a bugs & feedback thread for Withered Rose Syndra:
"Hey all! 
Withered Rose Syndra is coming in hot to PBE with: 
  • New models and textures!
  • New VFX!

Withered Rose Talon

1350 RP
"After the alliance his adopted sister Katarina formed at the last festival was broken, Talon swore revenge. He intends to restore their family's honor by exposing and shattering the entire concept of this celebration of glittering finery and sacred vows. Nothing and no one at this year's festival will escape his wrath."

Here's Riot KiWiKiD with a bugs & feedback thread for Withered Rose Talon:
