( REMEMBER: All PBE information is tentative and subject to change. There is a reason Riot puts these things up for testing and doesn't just push them to live :P )
Just as you might have guessed, both Kha'Zix and his release skin, Mecha Kha'Zix, are now available for testing on the PBE! Below is a look at his splash art,voice overs, abilities & ratios, lore, and Rengar's special interaction with him, as well as a preview of his Mecha Kha'Zix skin.

|Every time you level you are presented with your EVOLVE bar. You can upgrade each ability but only receive three points from leveling your ultimate. Apparently, You can receive a 4th evolution point by scoring a pentakill.|
|Your appearance also changes as you evolve. It varies by order, but here is an example of wings, claws, spikes.|
|Evolving your ultimate turns Kha'Zix red. Shown above is wing's and ultimate evolved.|
|Lore entry, screen capped from client.|
|Rengar's hidden passive with Kha'Zix changes the name ( doesn't give bonus stacks or anything ) of his Bonetooth necklace to "Head of Kha'Zix" after killing him. Thanks to redditor HansVonBurger for the shot. |
A few new skins snuck into this patch, including the previously announced Sultan Tryndamere and Pentakill Olaf, the long awaited last member to Runeterra's heaviest band!
|The splash art is not yet finished in this PBE build.|
As we saw expected from the reveal earlier, Soraka's visual update is included in this PBE patch. In addition to the new model for every skin, his update includes all new voice overs, splash arts ( except for Divine ), animations, and particles.
|Soraka's new default skin and her updated Dryad & Divine skins.|
|The splash art for this skin wasn't updated.|
The new Honor system was implemented this patch but has not yet been enabled. Here are some preview shots of where you can find the system in game and what options you have for honoring your fellow summoners.

This PBE patch also had a few balance changes, namely buffs for both Syndra and the Zhoyna's Hour glass item.
- Dark Sphere ( Q ): Damage increased to 70/110/150/190/230 ( +.6 AP ) from 60/100/140/180/220 (+.5 AP). Mana cost also reduced to 40/50/60/70/80 from 50/60/70/80/90.
- Unleashed Power ( R ): AP scaling increased to by .2 from .15
- Zhonya's Hourglass activated duration increased to 2.5 from 2.0
Lastly we have a few odds and ends to wrap up.
Intermediate bots now wear random skins instead of just using the default skins for each champion. This is the best change ever.
Wards now have a small symbol above their head, presumably to help improve the readability that one detects stealth ( same graphic as oracles ) and the other doesn't; Just a guess!
To the dismay of some and the delight of others, the "new" Lux Splash is gone and the old one is back in it's place. I can only assume Riot heard the complaints of the communtiy and is working to fix it up.
P,S: Thanks to all of you guys on the PBE who helped me snag shots <3!
