Are you ready to take part in Operation: Songbird? The League of Legends PsyOps event is here, with new skins for Sona, Ezreal, the unreleased Samira, and more. There’s also a host of missions you can play with tons of rewards ⁠— including a Prestige skin.

It’s pretty hard to top an event like Spirit Blossom. 11 new skins, a visual novel-esque in-client experience, and a boatload of rewards? It was a truly special event. However, Riot aren’t slouching off with PsyOps.

With 11 skins in the all-new PsyOps collection on their way across patches 10.18 and 10.19, and a host of rewards and missions to play through, Operation: Songbird could live up to the lofty standards of the previous event.

Here’s everything you need to know about the PsyOps event.

League PsyOps skins for Samira, Ezreal, more

There will be 11 PsyOps skins total, making it one of the biggest event drops in Season 10. Much like the Spirit Blossom event, the content will be dropped over two patches ⁠— Patch 10.18 and 10.19.

In Patch 10.18, the first six skins will be released. They’ll be for Sona, Vi, Shen, Master Yi, and Ezreal ⁠— the latter of which is getting a Prestige skin. The skin set definitely has a feel like some Project skins from years gone by, but they’ve also got some distinctive features about them.

Most of the skins will cost 1350 RP, except for Ezreal’s Prestige skin. That’ll set you back 100 Prestige points, or 2000 PsyOps points in the event shop.

There are also skins for Kayle, Pyke, Viktor, Zed, and the unreleased Samira coming on Patch 10.19. That’s set to drop on September 16, so be sure to save your RP if you want to pick those up.

League PsyOps event pass

Like all other League events, the PsyOps event will come with a pass. This pass will give you access to a lot more content than just the free track. Extra missions, event orbs, hextech chests and keys, Prestige points: These passes are loaded with value.

The PsyOps event pass will set you back 1650 RP, just a smidge over $10 USD. The bundle will include four PsyOps orbs, worth 1000 RP, and 200 event tokens on top, so it’s good value regardless.

If you want to gun for the Prestige Ezreal skin, or farming banners for your favorite champions, you’ll need to buy the pass to make sure you can get enough tokens.

Nexus Blitz has departed with the end of the Spirit Blossom event, but a new rotating game mode is back. Fan-favorite One For All will be live for the PsyOps event, and there’s going to be some special pass missions for you to complete.

The reason why PsyOps is being cut a bit short is to make way for the Worlds 2020 event starting October 1, and that’s something you won’t want to miss.

Cosplay

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!
