Riot Games has updated the Public Beta Environment (PBE) to include three upcoming League of Legends Lunar Revel 2017 skins. The annual festive Chinese New Year is once again bringing new additions to the Warring Kingdoms lineup in the form of Warring Kingdoms Azir, Warring Kingdoms Garen, and Warring Kingdoms Vi.
Warring Kingdoms Azir (1350 RP) features all-new visual and sound effects to go with a matching Tower for his Shurima’s legacy passive. The Emperor’s conjured Chinese warriors look great and a new recall animation finds Azir playing ancient Chinese Go… with himself?
Warring Kingdoms Garen (1350 RP) looks simply amazing with his huge emerald sword. His pauldrons, and a headband, are both decked in green stones. Executing Judgment brings up a ghostly dragon following Garen’s spinning routine. He too features a unique recall animation where he earths a flag.
Warring Kingdoms Vi (1350 RP) is my personal pick from the lot. She wields roaring lion heads as huge jade fists. They look incredibly intimidating; each hit brings up a green whiff with Excessive Force splashing nature’s energy on the Rift. For her recall animation, Vi takes up a martial arts’ stand to practice a few moves before coming back in.
Do note that all three skins are termed as Legacy, meaning that they will be available for a limited time only. Once the League of Legends Lunar Revel 2017 event concludes, all three skins will be taken away by the developer from the store.
Last year, Riot Games featured Radiant Wukong, Lunar Wraith Caitlyn, and Lunar Wraith Morgana to commemorate the new year. As for the Warring Kingdoms lineup, it features Katarina, Nidalee, Jarvan IV, Tryndamere and Xin Zhao.
In other news, the latest PBE update also brought a new Dreadnova Gangplank skin which has the Saltwater Scourge battling in futuristic armor and with sci-fi weapons.
