Here's the TL;DR, for the four or five people who will read this:

"For those of us who are already lvl 30, what are we going to get, beyond blue essence?"
Capsules will contain champ shards, to help out those who are not full-up in their roster size. For those that are, the Blue Essence Store will return on occasion. There will also be milestone-rewards, that range from icons and emotes to gemstones.

"How will rune pages work in the new system?"
Basically like the old ones: you get five default pages you cannot edit, two free pages you can edit, and you can acquire more from the store. The biggest difference being that you can edit your rune pages whilst in Champion Select.

"In regards to being given a 1350 skin for every four rune pages bought with RP, will the skins be randomly chosen? Or based on something like my top 10 played champs? Also, I bought three rune pages with RP. Would I still get a skin?"
Your rune page-purchases will be rounded up to determined how many skins you will get. They will be randomly selected from within the criteria: you must own the champion, and you must not own the 1350 skin in question.

"With the new mastery and runes update, what will happen to champions who rely almost entirely on magic pen or armor pen?"
"This is one example of a problem we’ve been working on throughout Runes Reforged. We’ve reduced the ability to concentrate a champion into a single focus." This isn't really an issue for champions like Ziggs, but it is definitely a problem for a champion like Riven (and her CDR runes). While the new system lacks clean solutions to these problem-cases, levers exist that can be pulled in accommodation, including changing their base statistics. And, obviously, Riot will pay attention to these champions as we move further into the Pre-Season.

"After merging the IP and blue essences systems, will you put out daily quests with rewards of blue essence (or something else)?"
"We’re planning on converting the First Win of the Day bonus into a daily mission that grants bonus XP towards your next level up...At the moment, we don’t have any plans to offer blue essence directly through missions. We’d like to see the new leveling system in action first and we’ll make adjustments from there."

"Are we going to be able to see opponent’s runes in a match?"
To reiterate, they will be showing the Keystone and secondary path of all champions during the loading screen. Not the whole path, just that they are using said path; a Sona could show up as "Meteor, Domination", and you can go from there. Beyond that, "they're leaning far more heavily on timely VFX and SFX to communicate relevant tactical information".
Pidge got another episode all to herself again; hit me in the happy-feels. Now if Prince Lotor - and his cool lady-friends - could get some actual screen-time.

That's pretty cool.

Oh s***, I apologize for that: you keep all of the pages you had purchased. That's just what you would start with, the default if you were new or whatever.
