11/30 PBE Update: Nami's Splash Change, Koi Nami odds and ends, and Arclight Varus VO

Posted on at 1:55 PM by Moobeat
An early and very oddly timed PBE patch has been deployed! Still nothing major though, mostly just polish and assorted smaller changes.
Continue reading for a summary of the change, including an eye color change in Nami's splash art, a color change for Nami's /joke sharks, a placeholder image and unfinished particles for Koi Nami, and an update to the voice overs on Arclight Varus.

( REMEMBER: Everything on the PBE is tentative and subject to change! )

Nami's Splash Changed
Nami now has orange eyes instead of red eyes. All of her associated images ( portrait, store images, etc ) have been updated.

Nami's /joke Sharks are now grey
Instead of colorful yellow, red, and blue /joke sharks, Nami's default skin now features grey sharks.

Placeholder for Nami's release skin
I know it isn't too exciting but there is now a placeholder images for Nami's release skin. The skin is still referred to as Koi Nami in the files and a few particles are thrown in there too... still no model.
Unfinished Koi Nami Particles
While we may not have Koi Nami yet, some of her UNFINISHED particles made their way into the PBE. Here is a peek at the cute little fish that will replace her /joke sharks.

Arclight Varus Voiceover
The voice overs for Arclight Varus have had the "shadowy/evil" filter lifted off of them and now sound more human like. Hard to explain with text so I'd recommend checking out the video below.

    Koi or more specifically nishikigoi, are ornamental varieties of domesticated common carp that are kept for decorative purposes in outdoor koi ponds or water gardens. Koi varieties are distinguished by coloration, patterning, and scalation.
