Gee, Lux, how come Riot lets you have TWO new skins?

More Dark Star skins are coming to League of Legends, this time for Malphite, Xerath, and Mordekaiser. Lux is also getting two skins that match in the set: Cosmic and Dark Cosmic.

Based on her splash art, Lux seems like a goddess in this universe, having two different forms. It seems like she was once a good goddess, but somehow got corrupted, mayhaps by the other Dark Star skins.

Cosmic skins are described as “creatures of sublime love,” according to the Event Horizon skin page on the League of Legends wiki. On the flip side, Dark Star skins are referred to as “unknowable monstrosities.” Cosmic skins, like Cosmic Queen Ashe, are seen as the protagonists, with the Dark skins, like Dark Cosmic Jhin and Dark Star Karma, appearing as the antagonists.

Out of the five new skins in this set, Malphite will be getting a Prestige Edition skin, which will be purchasable using event tokens.
