Goooood Afternoon League of Legends community,
So, for all the new players out there that have never heard of The Lunar Revel, you might be asking yourself... What is The Lunar Revel?
Well, its pretty simple. The Lunar Revel is league´s Chinese new year, the moment when every single Server worldwide gets a small taste of the fascinating Chinese culture both in** music** and attire (by that i mean theme with champion skins), and cute little legacy ward skins.
The Lunar Revel is unfortunately not as hyped as the Harrowing or Snowdown nor it comes with a fun little gamemmode, none the less, its a cool mini event.
Since the beginning, League of Legends has celebrated The Lunar Revel and each year it has become better (except this years in 2015, it was very underwhelming v_v )
So, what do we get during the Lunar Revel? We get cool chinese inspired skins, some cool ward skins & the return of the legacy Lunar Revel ward skins, and a pretty amazing Log in screen. As for gamemodes, well, there has never been one for the Lunar Revel, and I really hope Riot puts one in, but having another gamemode straight after the Legend of the Poro king, I highly doubt it.
Most of the Lunar Revel skins are not Legeacy, now, if you dont know what the term legacy means, its pretty simple.
- Legacy: Skin types that show up _**ONCE A YEAR**, every year_ (I made it simple and straight to the point).
(An example. Right now we have the legacy Snowdown skins in the store, these skins are christmas themed, and they are only available during the Christmas Holidays. So After the 7th of January, all the Snowdown skins will NOT BE PURCHASEABLE until December of 2016.)
Back the the main thread. Most of the Lunar Revel skins are not Legacy, they are available in the shop 24/7 through the entire year. So, if you want to feel the Lunar Revel experience with some skins, I will show you which skins are the Lunar Revel skins.
A little tip about the Lunar Revel skins, most of them have a theme, the theme is usually represented by what animal the Chinese Calender marks.

This year's Lunar Revel brings us three new skins - Dragonblade Riven, Lunar Goddess Diana, and Warring Kingdoms Tryndamere.
Dragon Blade Riven 1350RP (LEGACY)
From the official teaser:
One tale tells of a woman, her sword forged in dragon's fire, descending into an enemy enclave in the aftermath of a bloody battle. She leaped and slashed through hordes of foes, slaying captors and freeing their captives. Refusing to bow to those who would enslave the innocent, she stormed across the countryside, giving hope to refugees and the unprotected. Those who witnessed her crusade soon knew the truth behind the proverb, "There's no shield like a Dragonblade's sword."
Lunar Goddess Diana 975Rp (NOT LEGACY)
From Riot's official teaser:
"Prophecy tells of the lotus cycle, where the flower endures humble beginnings in mud and one day blooms in perfect beauty.
Facing fierce persecution at every turn, a woman toiled among the laborers, the weak and the broken. In the shell of an ancient lunar temple, she uncovered a crescent blade slung across golden armor inscribed with blown lotus petals. A soft voice sang when she grasped the hilt of the weapon, lilting with honest knowledge. She was struck by a vision of a warrior goddess wearing the gilded regalia. Stirred by the truth in the moon’s hymn, she lifted the sword.
Warring Kingdoms Tryndamere 975Rp (LEGACY)
From Riot's official teaser:
Warring Kingdoms Tryndamere blazes the path of power, and the most haunting tales of the conflict are stained by the blood of his enemies.
One story tells of his single-handed defense against an ambush on a narrow bridge. Green and gold armor aflame, rage fueled his rampage through the opposing ranks. Word spread from those lucky enough to survive, it's not the edge of his blade that kills you; it's the weight of the dragon riding it.
