Frankly, the "release new champions with one new skin" bull**** needs to stop. If we had a wider variety of starting skins to choose from, I sincerely doubt that we would be having this conversation, because Diana would have 2-3 skins already and probably have something for everyone.

I mean, champions are being released slower and slower, and that means there needs to be a corresponding increase in other types of content. But no, skin releases are fewer and farther between, and champions are being released with a single skin. The only thing we got in compensation were a couple of events that meant nothing in the long run.
If Diana had been released with two skins like Leona, I don't think people would really care about this skin.

Leona's release was great because her default was in the middle and you could have a skin of her in more armor (Defender) or less armor (Valkyrie). We didn't really get that option with Diana.

I honestly would've rather seen a counterpart to Defender than Valkyrie for Diana's release, but that's just me.

*Ahem...* Well...
Yup, nothing serious. But we're getting there, I suppose.
That's not the correct texture. Looks like an in progress version was thrown up. We changed the head dress a bit and rebalanced colors. There's also been a bit of change to her bracers, a bit to her chest, editing of her feet, and a few other touch ups. As I said, time and resources dictate what we can do, but some polish points have been hit. Personally, I'm very satisfied within the context and theme of the skin. I think it's an elegant treatment.

But, if it's still not something everyone loves, believe me, there are many good ideas for Diana that we can try next

Just release the full skin already so I can make my choice on getting or not.
Hope her third skin makes me say: "OMG! Instant buy!".

Edit: I still have hopes for her second skin IronStylus.

How about giving us the old, high quality Dark Valkyrie Diana back. It's pretty condescending to us to have changed her because "they'll confuse her with syndra"
