Brand new Arcana skins are about to hit League of Legends and will include a new cosmetic for a champion in each role except for jungle.
In the latest PBE preview, Riot has presented four completely new skins that will be introduced to the game within the near future. Before that, the skins will be available for testing on the Public Beta Environment for the final testing. While it will only be four new skins this time around, it will include a wide variety of champions. The Arcana skin line will have a new cosmetic for Lucian, Camille, Xerath, and Tahm Kench.

The skins were first revealed on the League of Legends U.K. and Nordics Twitter accounts. They will be the next round of skins Riot will be rolling out this year. The skins will have a red and golden theme, including strange symbols that are likely a reference to tarot cards and the supernatural.
After a lot of futuristic new skins with the recent Space Groove skin line, Riot is now back with a mysterious theme. All four cosmetics have the same red and golden effects in common, all giving the champions’ abilities a completely new look. Lucian will now be firing red deadly bullets while Tahm Kench looks like an evil fortune teller.
For Tahm Kench, fans were quick to discover that a new effect has been added to his Abyssal Voyage (R) in the preview video, in what looks like a knock-up. Furthermore, the Abyssal Voyage was cast right after his Tongue Lash (Q), which could indicate that some of his abilities are swapping places. If this is a sneak peek of the upcoming Tahm Kench rework, then it might be closer than expected.

When will the Arcana skins hit LoL live servers?
As always with new LoL skins, they will be available for testing on the PBE before being released. If everything goes as normal, the Arcana skins will likely hit the live servers with patch 11.10. This patch is scheduled to be released on May 12.
Until the official release, players will be able to test the skins for free on PBE.
