A few news bits

Posted on at 11:22 PM by Moobeat
I present you with a potpourri of small news updates from yesterday and today. 


1) Riot has released a video summarizing the Tribunal and showing you how to use it. Hopefully this will clear up a bit of the confusion and generate more popularity for the newly implemented system.


2) It looks like the item Sword of the Divine is going to get some love in the near future. It's activation makes attacks undodgeable and grants armor penetration for a short amount of time. It seems weird to say now, but SotD used to be a very powerful item back when Phantom Dancer granted dodge and every melee brawl would be decided by who had the most dodge. Now that Ninja Tabi is the only item to grant dodge, it isn't as valuable of an option. Here is a RED post in a discussion thread about the item.
"I think as a proc item, it's not bad, but that active is super bad. We'll change it!"
 - Morello, Lead Champion Designer, via the official forums








3) The Kayle update is still slated for the post Orianna patch, but it looks like we will see an improvement to her animations as well! I hope this eliminates her wings clipping through her model, that sort of thing is SO pre-Season One.

"We wanted to do Kayle this patch, but needed to hold it back. It's on the docket for post-Orianna. We have some new updated Kayle animation work we're gonna roll out with it, too."

- Morello, Lead Champion Designer, via the official forums.








4) League of Legends Game Cards, phyiscal cards carrying redeemable codes for the in game currency RIOT POINTS, are now available in a multitude of new locations across North America. Canadian Future Shops, 7-Eleven, and Best Buy will all be carrying the cards in the near future. The cards have also recently been made available at Walmarts across the United States. Check out this post to find the nearest locations you can pick up one of these bad boys.

Also, speaking of Riot Point Cards, I have two to give away soon, so stay tuned! I'm still trying to decide how I want to do it. Ideas?

  12. User submitted videos? That would be biased towards me at all, no! :P It's pretty hard to do it fair, though. I am surprised they aren't doing much with the dodge. It's not like its a broken mechanic or anything.
