8-10 PBE Update: Astronautilus, Pool Party Ziggs, and more.

Posted on at 9:59 PM by Moobeat
 The PBE has, again, been updated! Granted this update is significantly smaller than the massive update yesterday,  we still have new skins for Ziggs & Nautilus, updated ability icons for Katarina, and a confirmation about an upcoming Gangplank skin.

As always, keep in mind this content is tentative and could change before hitting the live servers.
Our two new skins are Pool Party Ziggs and Astronaut Nautilus! Both of these skins were community concepts originally crafted at the hands of MaTTcomGo.
Pool Party Ziggs

Astronautilus


Now for the remaining bits and pieces:

Katarina, in lieu of her newly updated kit, received a fresh set of icons.

If you were undecided on who was featured on the Brazilian launch skin teaser , here is a little bit of confirmation that it is indeed good ole' Gangplank .

    1. They should give him a flag as a weapon instead, it would be more funny and interesting!

    2. No, because then they would have to re-code the animations just for the skin, and that would make it start pushing towards being a legendary

    3. Why not two legendary astronauts? Astroanuts is kinda legendary.

  6. Good, now where are Russian Knight Olaf, Stormblade Karma, and more importantly, Lu Bu Jarvan IV ? :(

    Glad to see Riot made those two skins become reality though.

    1. I was just thinking the same thing.

      Lu Bu J4, Russian Knight Olaf, Dreadknight Tryndamere...they disappeared?

      Moobeat - any word if these are even still in the game files? I know a model for RK Olaf was found for his ult, textures for J4 and Olaf also and just animation files for DK Trynd.

      Delete
    2. I heard that Russian Knight Olaf is meant for the release of the Russian server... Maybe one of the others for the upcoming Turkish one? Stormblade Karma will likely come out once Karma's rework is finished. Which will probably be one of the upcoming patches this year (along with Soraka's remodel.)

    3. lu bu j4 is still in the works. skin spotlights posted a pic of his spear on twitter a few weeks ago.

  14. Awwww am I the only one wishing Ziggs had a giant rubber ducky strapped to his back and threw exploding duckies instead of the duckies being his W?

  17. Hey Moobeat, could you implement a way to subscribe to your blog via RSS or something?

  18. Huh? Special Force Gangplank for Brazil launch? I don't get the connection. Is it because Brazil is infamous for gangsters?

  24. Oh goody, skins for Naut and Zi-
    (no splash art)
    Yeah, sure they'll be released... like Exterminator Twitch...

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Actually many new skins on released on PBE without splash art now. You can actually buy and play them on the PBE right now unlike that Twitch skin which was never playable.

      Delete
  25. I don't really like Pool Party Ziggs but I could really go for Astronaut Nautilus.

    I could also go for a Soraka splash art change xD

    ReplyDelete
  26. Are these going to be limited skins or ? (woud love to know :D)

    ReplyDelete
  27. FYI "In Lieu of" means instead of; did you mean "in honor of?" coz that'd make more sense

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. In lieu of means in connection not instead of :-)

      Delete
    2. I stand corrected and yes it means instead of or in place of. I was quite confused haha

  31. Not sure if anyone noticed this, but if someone d/cs on SR, the person at fountain gains 10000 Armor/MR now so people cant just use karthus or some global ulti to gain free kills

    1. But when was this implemented though? I dont believe this was added in before and was recently implemented

      Delete
    2. I don't know when it was added in, but I have known about it for a long time. At least months ago.

  32. Maybe it's not important but in the current fontconfig file are 2 lines with " Diana" and " Draven" for display names, curiously Darius has no ""

    1. lol it takes the names like tags xD
      lets try again "<skin 2> Diana" and "<skin 2> Draven" and no "<skin 2>" for Darius
