LoL Patch 6.19 Balance Changes
That out of the way, let’s start with the really important bit, shall we? What you need to remember is that stuff on the PBE like this is neither guaranteed to happen, nor to be in the next patch even if it does. This is what the folks over at Riot are thinking about doing. We’ve got the numbers on what’s changing, and a general guideline on which way each champion, item, mastery, summoner spell or rune is moving.

LoL Patch 6.19 New Skins
Second most important: cosmetics. Lovely, gorgeous cosmetics. Bit more of a visual medium this, so we’ve grabbed the best videos of each skin, as well as a lovely pic or two. Some are relatively simple changes, while others are total reworks of every part of the champion outside the gameplay numbers - new VO, new animations, new particles and the rest. It’s generally defined by how much they cost, so we’ve detailed that as well.
Championship Ward Skin
640 RP. Details from Riot.
Hopefully some full champion skins to come!
LoL Patch 6.19 Splash Art Update
Another batch of splash art updates for characters that received character revamps but didn't have their art changed similarly. In future, this will happen simultaneously, as it did with the Yorick Champion Rework.

LoL Patch 6.20 Star Guardians & Ivern
