Ryze, Janna, and Rengar become Guardians of the Sands

Janna’s basic attacks are now pocket sand

Alongside the Mecha Kingdoms and Dragon Slayer skins that popped up on the Public Beta Environment, three new Guardian of the Sands skins dropped for Janna, Ryze, and Rengar.

The three have ascended to guardians now and all have Shurima-themed looks. These guardians are set to protect a tomb with demonic creatures hidden within, but they apparently haven’t been doing such a great job, seeing how Sand Wraith Pyke and Risen Fiddlesticks exist. Maybe they needed to recruit these three guardians to ensure no more monsters would escape.

This is Ryze’s first non-esports skin since Dec. 2015, when he got Ryze Whitebeard. Since then he’s gotten an SKT T1 skin in Aug. 2016 and a Championship skin in Sep. 2019.

These skins will likely launch in January, since that’s when we’ll get our next big patch.
