New Champion: Nilah

Our latest champion, Nilah, the Joy Unbound, is now on the PBE for testing! Here's Riot Koyuncu with a bugs & feedback thread for Nilah and her release skin:
"Hello everyone! I'm Riot Koyuncu, one of the QA Engineers on League's Champions team. 
Nilah, the Joy Unbound, should be hitting PBE really soon! I'll be using this thread to post announcements and collect your player feedback. We've got about a week before we have to lock any proposed changes for her release, so I'll be monitoring common suggestions in the comments to share back with the team for possible adjustments. 
If you encounter any in-game bugs while playing Nilah or her Star Guardian skin, please let us know by heading over to our Bug Reporting Tool and providing any information on the issue. Providing repro steps or a video clip are incredibly helpful at debugging. 
Cheers, 
Mikky"

Lore

Here's Nilah's in client lore: 
"Nilah is an ascetic warrior from a distant land, seeking the world's deadliest, most titanic opponents so that she might challenge and destroy them. Having won her power through an encounter with the long-imprisoned demon of joy, she has no emotions other than unceasing jubilation—a small price to pay for the vast strength she now possesses. Channeling the demon's liquid form into a blade of unparalleled might, she stands defiant against ancient threats long forgotten."
Check out her bio over on her Universe page!

Voiceover

Here's Nilah's full voiceover:

Release Skin

Nilah's release skin is Star Guardian Nilah:

Star Guardian Nilah

1350 RP
"A powerful Outer Guardian who patrols the wider universe, Nilah has faced multiple reality-ending threats and returned alive... making her a living legend among her peers. Asked to act as teacher to the new generation, she has reluctantly accepted her new responsibilities... though if a particularly big monster appears in VC, she always calls dibs."

Champion Skins

Five new skins are now on the PBE for testing:

Star Guardian Ekko

1350 RP
"Given time-shifting powers by the First Star, Ekko approaches life with a relaxed and casual demeanor. Why care if you get infinite do-overs? But when it comes to facing monsters alongside the Star Guardians, he's deadly serious, using his command over time and space to keep Valoran City safe from the darkness."


Here's Riot DW Platypus with a bugs & feedback thread for Star Guardian Ekko:

Star Guardian Ekko Prestige Edition

2000 Event Tokens
"Ekko doesn't need magical powers to look like a star. He rocks an effortless streetwear style wherever he goes, turning heads and paparazzi lenses alike. Appreciating the look? Take it all in. He's got time."

Here's Riot DW Platypus with a bugs & feedback thread for Star Guardian Ekko Prestige Edition:
"Won this fight already, doing it again for fun.

Prestige Star Guardian Ekko comes with:

Star Guardian Kai'Sa

1820 RP (Legendary)
"A born leader with a head for tactics, Kai'Sa takes her job as captain extremely seriously... perhaps too much for her own good. Still, her squad respects her command and will follow her into even the most dangerous missions, where she'll snipe priority targets and spray the rest with payloads of starlight-powered missiles."


As a legendary skin, Star Guardian Kai'Sa has a new voiceover:

Here's Riot 6armedrobot with a bugs & feedback thread for Star Guardian Kai'Sa:
"Hello All! 
"When memories fade and darkness surrounds you, find the strength inside."

Star Guardian Sona

1350 RP
"Quiet and reflective, Sona spends her time away from the Guardians as a composer of music... and her time with them as a figther of incredible power, blasting enemies away with sonically charged starlight. Though she cannot speak, she always makes her voice heard through deeds... or her chatterbox familiar-slash-interpreter, Chiizu."

Here's Riot 6armedrobot with a bugs & feedback thread for Star Guardian Sona:
"Hello All! 
"I never could refuse an empty stage. Not even this one." 
Star Guardian Sona is heading onto the Rift with:
  • New models and textures!
  • New VFX!
  • New SFX!

Star Nemesis Fiddlesticks

1350 RP
"The creature known as Fiddlesticks has fed on Star Guardians across every era, hunting those on the verge of falling before finally consuming their light. Its connection to the Guardians, and the reason it is drawn to them, is not well understood... but the familiar seemingly trapped within it suggests a truly disturbing origin."


Here's Riot Eneopa with a bugs & feedback thread for Star Nemesis Fiddlesticks:
"Hello All! 
"Fear..." 
Star Nemesis Fiddlesticks is heading onto the Rift with:
  • New models and textures!
  • New VFX!
  • New SFX!
  • New recall Animation!
  • New homeguard Animation!
Star Nemesis Fiddlesticks is set to be 1350 RP.
