11/28 PBE Patch: Minor Changes

Posted on at 9:25 PM by Moobeat
Edit: there were more mastery changes than I originally noticed. Added them to bottom of post

The PBE has been updated, although this patch contained very little new content.
Continue reading for the grab bag of small changes, including a tweak to Master Yi's new summoner portrait, some holiday resources for the shop, two new summoner icons, and a minor change to the utility tree.
( REMEMBER: Everything on the PBE is tentative and subject to change! )

Tweaks to new Master Yi portrait
Master Yi's brand new champion portrait got slightly tweaked in this patch, focusing it in a little bit more and turning up the green.

Holiday Images for Store
Looks like Riot is prepping for the upcoming holiday season, they snuck in some new wintery images to decorate the shop with.

New Summoner Icons
Two new Summoner Icons popped up in this update, although it is unclear what they are for. It's totally possible they could be exclusive to the SEA/Chinese servers, similar to the Chibi champion portraits present in the files.

Slight Utility Tree Change
If you remember a PBE patch or so ago, Vampirism and Strength of Spirit flipped places in the utility tree. That change is still present but Expanded Mind is NO LONGER connected to Vampirism, as when the two masteries switched places it was still connected.

 Edit: There were apparently some other mastery changes that I missed. Here's a list:

Offensive Tree
  • Destruction changed to 1 point total, from two, and gives 5% increased damage to turrets.
  • Mental Force changed to 3 points total, from 4, and gives 2/4/6 AP.

Defensive Tree
  • Legendary Armor changed to 3 points total, from four, and gives 2/4/6% bonus armor and MR.
  • Reinforced Armor changed to a 1 point total, from two, and now gives 10% crit damage reduction

Utility Tree
  • Explorer has a new icon.

    ReplyDelete
  11. It can take a wee bit to update

    ReplyDelete
  12. They fixed the splash art loading screen for Nami, its now the new one and not the concept art

    ReplyDelete
  13. hey but thats good that means that the patch is basically ready to be released

    ReplyDelete
  14. Haven't been playing the PBE so I don't spoil myself, hopefully this is the final few changes and it goes live tomorrow!

    ReplyDelete
  15. Might want to check runes. Mark of Magic Penetration (formerly Insight) nerfed to 0.87 Magic Pen, down from 0.95.

    ReplyDelete
  16. New Icon looks like Rammus O.O

    ReplyDelete
  17. Isn't this the same change that went through the initial version of the Nami PBE patch? They reduced all the Pen marks to compensate for how the new formula works.

    ReplyDelete
  18. Ah, I probably missed that change then. Disregard my post. >.<

    ReplyDelete
  19. This is a lot of changes in the PBE, That live patch is gonna be HUGE! Can't wait. Nami and Season 3! And Nid getting a graphic re-work, who could ask for more? A great patch indeed.



    Gonna buy Nami with RP and hopefully Koi Nami looks just as good if not a little bit better than I am expecting. Gotta support the creation of supports!!

    ReplyDelete
  20. Wonder if the icons are dominion related?

    ReplyDelete
  21. Koi Nami is the name of her skin it seems, that's the name found in the files at least.

    ReplyDelete
  22. they did also fix the item with Nami's icon in the game using the pre-release artwork still. it shows her release stuff now.

    ReplyDelete
  23. they have to re add nidalee rework and nami skin

    ReplyDelete
  24. Wait the LOLKing chibi icons are real file icons?

    ReplyDelete
  25. Well there is a chance they release the patch without nidalee rework for next week , nami should be ready by the next week patch.

    ReplyDelete
  26. A bunch of weird textures were added to Summoner's Rift (Black Spots all over, trees black)

    What I'm thinking is there's going to be a Christmas SR with the new SR Rework.

    ReplyDelete
  27. I don't think you noticed, but some of the masteries have been rebalanced. Should look into that. All 3 trees changed, but mostly the defense and utility.

    ReplyDelete
  28. portriat... really... no one noticed the typo? :D

    ReplyDelete
  29. As far as I've heard, there is no formula change for the calculation of Mpen, so I don't really see the reasoning behind the nerf on Mpen specifically....

  31. Morderammus, the ultimate tank !

    ReplyDelete
  32. hmm how can i get this new icon...?

    ReplyDelete
  33. That definitely IS Rammus's head.

    ReplyDelete
  34. You're totally starting a new trend after the beloved 'FIRST' comments, sir.

    ReplyDelete
  35. They said they would change the priority between flat arP and %arP but I heard nothing about mPen either

    ReplyDelete
  36. why exactly is pbe getting so much coverage, i mean.. its almost as if its a legit server like this with all the updates about it :/ i just want to see the content to come live on the actual client..

    ReplyDelete
  37. possibly the lifetime RP purchase icons?

    ReplyDelete
  38. When is the Patch finally streaming? -.- It takes ages

    ReplyDelete
  39. It's Full Metal Rammus...

    ReplyDelete
  40. S3 is kinda important, also nothing to report on live.

    ReplyDelete
  41. The new icon looks kinda out of place compared to the other icons. The style is a bit different.

    ReplyDelete
  42. They said Mpen would be calculated like the new a pen, hence the nerfs. And resistances will cost more.

    ReplyDelete
  43. The word 'portrait' is mispelled in the sentence "Master Yi's brand new champion portriat" I don't mean to seem like an ass it is just glaring at me.

    ReplyDelete
  44. You would prefer having no updates whatsoever while we wait for the stuff to come live? Also, it's not like the stuff on the PBE is irrelevant to the live servers . It's all stuff that will eventually (unless changed prior to release) come to live .. I don't get your complaint. If you just want the Live server information, why don't you just read the official League website? It's the same stuff.

  45. Nidalee has most probably been rescheduled for the patch after next. No other reason for ñulling her from pbe.

    ReplyDelete
  46. only players ho play in chinese servers can get that new icons? fck... i want them too :P

    ReplyDelete
  47. I do think it's a lot more... devine.

    ReplyDelete
  48. At least is a lot better that "first"

    ReplyDelete
  49. Nope, its next week. The patch they announced was the next after Nami patch.

    ReplyDelete
  50. December 11 is the earliest day when will come patch 1.73. Nami patch is 1.72...

    ReplyDelete
  51. With all of the map issues and crashing going on in the PBE right now, I doubt it will be out by that date. Probably Dec 25 if it dosen't get dellayed by Rioters getting time off for Christmas; otherwise... January?

    ReplyDelete
  52. Yes this post is incomplete, there have been changes in others trees as well.

    ReplyDelete
  53. Maybe its the icon you get for getting so many wins with Rammus and Mord lol... idk looks cool though

    ReplyDelete
  54. Any date for the relase of the patch in the live server?

    ReplyDelete
  55. what what what?

    ReplyDelete
  56. Yup! Keep it on - maybe Moobeat will hear how much we discuss and we'll get a nice, small forums <3

    ReplyDelete
  57. one can survived everything now days exept morderammus

    ReplyDelete
  58. Not at all. Xmas stuff may mean that it's going to be released when first Xmas related days hit. 6th Dec?

    ReplyDelete
  59. Maybe Nami is 12/6, but Nidalee is 12/11. That would make sense. Things on PBE are really too much for one patch. It's even bigger than Shadow Isles Patch.

    ReplyDelete
  60. I hope not. It looks so.... casual. Harrowing ones really looked special.

    ReplyDelete
  61. Lol! You sir have made my day.

    ReplyDelete
  62. It might as well be a real server, changes that hit here will hit live. People like to know whats coming and this is how they can see the changes .

    ReplyDelete
  63. added in a small list between classes, if you notice anything I missed lmk.

    ReplyDelete
  64. master yi's icon just looks like the tail-end of a spaceship :P

    ReplyDelete
  65. Not sure how I feel about that. We'll see if it's worth buying once they actually reveal anything about it...

    Also, they should have an easter egg with Up Up Down Down Left Right Left Right B A Start. You know, the KoiNami code.

    ReplyDelete
  66. On the official forums they said that the patch will go live on 11th of December at best. So maybe even later than that :/
