The PBE has been updated to reflect the tentative Jayce patch. This means Jayce is available for testing, new skins are ready to be oogled at, a slight preview of some of the balance changes to hit us next patch, a new Ward timer, and new notifications for when Dragon and Baron are slain.

Additionally, there are two awesome new skins for Singed and Alistar creeping around and the Glacial Malphite skin has fully added, instead of just the unmapped textures.
Thanks to Slushe for the in game caps.
