11-5 PBE Update: Zed Changes, Skill shot changes reverted, and Bioforge Darius

Posted on at 9:14 PM by Moobeat
The PBE has been updated!
 Continue reading for the changes, including the reversion of the skill shot changes, a few changes for Zed, and the renaming of Direforge Darius to Bioforge Darius.


Skill shot changes.
The skill shot range changes from the initial patch have been reverted in light of several severe bugs. This "restores" Amumu, Irelia, Nidalee, and Varus's ranges back to what they are on live.


Zed Changes
Zed has had several of his tool tips cleaned up and tweaks to several of his abilities. Remember that Zed is still in a volatile state as he was released to the PBE early.
  • Razor Shuriken's damage to each additional enemy "changed" to 49/77/105/133/161 ( +.7 bonus AD ) from 70%. The damage is the same. 
  • Tool tip No longer says it restores energy, but still does as it is an effect of W.
  • Shadow Slash's slow increased to 30/35/40/45/50% from 20/25/30/35/40. No longer returns energy.
  • Shadow Slash's mimicked Shadow Slash slow increased to 45/52.5/60/75 %
  • Tool tip No longer says it restores energy, but still does as it is an effect of W.

Bioforge Darius
Additionally, Direforge Darius has been renamed to Bioforge Darius.

  2. the new name for Darius makes much more sense with the big green tanks on his back!! :)

  3. I think Bioforge sounds like a much cooler name, but I still wish the green goo particles were more prominent. If the blood particle from hitting someone with his Q and the blood splatter that covers him when he ults (which I only just recently noticed) were changed to green, I think this skin would look a lot better.

  5. So he no longer can restore his energy?
    RoG post says it still does, the tooltip just no longer says so.
    Anyone with a Pbe Account feel like testing it?

    1. I believe they changed the tool tip because it was redundant (seriously, "but restores energy" sounded dumb in the old tool tip). I'm sure the energy restoration is there since that is half the point of his W (I would test this out myself personally except its take bloody forever to get into a game).

    2. Like Pierrick Le Moal said below me, every energy champion has some way to restore energy...this would be for lack of a better term wrong.
      Unbalanced. Unfair even...it better just be a tooltip thing.

    3. Indeed it is.

      I just went on the wikia and here is what it says for the W spell :

      "Zed's shadow will mimic his spell casts. If both strike the same target, Zed regains some energy. The energy restore can only occur once per cast."

      They did this so that people don't think Q and E restore energy when hit.
      Well it was already specified in the old tooltip so it wasn't really necessary.

      Imo Riot just trolled us rofl.

    4. They just removed it off the Q & E tool tips because as someone said it was redundant. His W tool tip still states that if your shadow and your skills hit the same target it returns energy. Doesn't need to say this on every one of his skills.

    5. Yokai would be correct. Sorry for the hasty post guys :(

  6. Every energy based champions are able to restore their energy with abilities or passive.

    But with that change, Zed can't anymore. I wonder if they are gonna change his passive...

    1. While I do love the dame Direforge I think for how the skin is designed Bioforge is alot better suiting in this case

  8. I think the Thread about desired changes on Zed addressed some good issues, (a lot of which I agreed with lol) I hope they tweak his skill set a bit before he comes out. I'd rather wait for a champ I really like, then a half baked one that just looks badass.

  9. Where have ' a closer look at pbe files' gone?
    We may find some shoeless support files...

    1. That would be amazing. Someone needs to leak some art or abilities or something

  11. I still want the third shadow of Zed to have an effect. It they'd just revert the power of the slow and either leave it as it is with 50% damage for shadow shurikens but the third shuriken not restoring energy, or make the third shuriken deal only 25% or something. but please, they should make Zed closer to the splash art and the imagined gameplay.

    1. That would be cool but then they would have to take the leap dmg off his ult and make the mark explode be less massive otherwise his burst on an AD would be way to high to get all the shurikens and shadow slashes off on top of that ult

  12. again no big buff for zed.. he will be UP. and tbh it sucks that they need ages to release champions, they don't change anything major in PBE anyway. in fact, it was more balanced before they did that bullshit "quality assurance".

  13. yeah his w speed and his ulti animation needed a lot of work and nothing...really sad.

  14. bioforge sounds more like a zerg structure than hextech.

  15. 'Bioforge' Darius is blatantly in the same style as Augmented Singed....why is it now just called Augmented Darius? -_-
