Riot Games has revealed all of the Spirit Blossom changes that will be added to League of Legends, Teamfight Tactics, and Legends of Runeterra to kick off the massive cross-title summer event, starting on July 22.

The Spirit Blossom event was first teased by Riot earlier in the year, revealing that they would be introducing a whimsical woodland jungler, now known as Lillia, and a masked champion, who “refuses to die,” during this time.

While many of the upcoming balance changes for League’s 10.15 patch have already been shared, Riot has now revealed some of the other changes that they would be implementing to kick off this summer event.

However, unlike past events, Legends of Runeterra and Teamfight Tactics will also experience some changes, with the publisher announcing that this will be their first major “cross-title experience.”

In addition to changes that have already been announced, such as the return of Nexus Blitz and the 149th champ Lillia, Riot has revealed that a new narrative experience called ‘Spirit Bonds’ would be coming to League on July 22.

Spirit Bonds will tie into Ionia’s Spirit Blossom festival and allow players to earn special rewards through integrated missions as part of these narrative journies.

The League devs explained that this summer event drew a lot of inspiration from Anime, adding: “Spirit Bonds is heavily inspired by the anime space, both in aesthetic and narrative, taking special attention to how visual novels are crafted.”

Legends of Runeterra Spirit Blossom changes

For Legends of Runeterra, players will be able to get their hands on a series of limited-time items, that “can be unlocked by just playing” and there will also be a new event pass in-store featuring more rewards.

More features will also be added to LoR on July 22 with a ‘Bestow’ Lab coming to the new game mode, which will allow players to “choose one of six reconstructed Spirit Blossom decks” for themselves.

There are also new Epic Quests and rewards getting added to Legends of Runeterra, where players can collect Petals, which can be earned through daily wins and quests, to unlock these exclusive rewards.

Featherknights, Hushtail, and Melisma are all set to receive more Little Legends variants and players will have the ability to purchase one-star versions of them directly, instead of finding them through opening Eggs.

League cosplayer descends from the heavens as amazing Dragonslayer Diana

Diana has descended from the heavens of Mount Targon here on Earth ⁠— or so you could be mistaken into thinking. Scottish cosplayer ‘anaelic’ has once again delivered the goods for League of Legends fan, putting on an epic display with her Dragonslayer Diana cosplay.

Seeing a Diana cosplay for League of Legends is rare. However, finding an exquisite one is almost impossible. The Scorn of the Moon, with her heavy armor and massive Moonsilver blade, isn’t up there with one of the popular champions to cosplay.

However, that hasn’t stopped anaelic from creating one of the best ⁠— if not the best ⁠— Diana cosplay with her incredible rendition of the Lunari’s Dragonslayer skin.

The Dragonslayer skin for Diana is one of her most intricate, but that didn’t stop anaelic.

Anaelic has been working on her Dragonslayer Diana cosplay since lockdown began. She was originally going to take it to conventions, but with 2020 stopping all of those, she instead used the project as motivation.

“This project has instead been my distraction, the thing that’s kept me motivated to stay productive, and I’m so proud that I at least have this to show for all the extra time I’ve had,” she said on Instagram after completing her cosplay.

You can tell just how much effort she put into it right from the first glance. Anaelic has managed to recreate the Aspect’s sunset-colored armor perfectly, not forgetting a single panel on Diana’s intricate outfit.

She managed to keep all the pieces together with velcro, although the cosplay is ⁠— understandably ⁠— very hard to get around it.

“I honestly don’t know how I’m going to survive a full day at a con in this cosplay because it is so hard to move about it! It was well worth it though because we got some amazing photos,” she added.

Anaelic also considered all the small details ⁠— she recreated the smoky effect on her blade with a smoke machine and LED lights built into the crescent. The cosplay is not only one of the best Diana ones we’ve seen, but one of the best cosplays of the year. Period.

The Scottish cosplayer isn’t stopping here though. If you’re wondering what anaelic’s next project is, wonder no more. She is currently working on a Spirit Blossom Lillia cosplay, and she’s trying to make it perfect from head-to-hoof. We’ve even covered her progress on it so far!
