Potential New Models and Looks in Patch 8.1

Patch 8.1 isn't playable yet, so we don't know which looks will or won't be available. But here are the new looks that have appeared in the database so far. It's possible that not everything on this page will become tameable in the upcoming patch, and we'll update this page as we find out more info.
