7-3 PBE Update

Posted on at 9:25 PM by Moobeat

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. Let's jump in!


One of the first things that was pulled was the splash arts for Jayce and his release skin. Thanks to Tnomad of State of the League for whipping out these bad boys for us. 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.


Jayce



Full Metal Jayce




Augmented Singed
Infernal Alistar
Glacial Malphite


Thanks to Slushe for the in game caps.


Other such fun from the PBE is JAYCE is available for play! Jayce does indeed have a level 1 "ultimate", which switches between hammer and gun. You can check out the rest of his, now confirmed, kit below!




As a recap, his abilities are


With Cannon Out


 With Hammer Out


 Passive and Ultimate

  21. wont that global announcement of dragon/baron kills tell the other team though that a group is doing it which would give the other team a good sign to go and finish the other team off afterwards? This is assuming that the other team doesn't have it warded.

    1. and there's no point to keep track of the timer so your team can keep doing dragon and such..

      Delete
    2. Not really... In just about every game we already "know" when its being done, and takes only a few moments before its comfirmed.

      Delete
  22. Is the trick for xerath going to be cool down reduction? The magic pen increase plus sorcerers boots make him scary if you build morellas and one other item I'm assuming

    ReplyDelete
  23. Teemo loves the Ionic Spark buffs!

    ReplyDelete
  24. There is incorrect info on Jayce abilities, it is only showing the details on the hammer ability, you can see it clearly here

    ( Q ) To the Skies! / Shock Blast:
    Leaps to an enemy dealing 20/65/110/155/200 physical damage to enemies and slowing them by 30/35/40/45/50% for 2 seconds.

    Cost: 40/45/50/55/60 Mana

    Range: 600

    Cooldown: 16 Seconds
