New Vs Old comparison here.
 Vi

Particle Changes

Bad Santa Veigar got the rest of his particle set in this patch, including a new look for hs Q, W, R. I include his new E ( which was in the last patch ) for completions sake.
His Q fires holiday tree cookies.
Finally matching up with the sound, his W drops an ornament.
His E, which was added in a previous patch.
His R fires a present which explodes in a very non present way.

While Dark Candy Fiddlesticks had particles before, a missing texture was making look all janky and blue. Here are are now, much more attractive and complete than before..
His Q has swirls to match his skin colors ( fear icon is missing atm, sure it will be fixed by live )
W is ice cold.
E Bird is also cold.
Surprise! More Ice on his R.
Steel Legion Lux also got a few of her new particles, although she is still incomplete.
Q
E has a large explosion now.

R is very obviously not complete but shows some promise.

Here is a video containing a video preview of the new particles for Bad Santa Veigar, Steel Legion Lux, and Dark Candy Fiddlesticks



Masked Shaco also got some new particles. They look mostly finalized.
Q features a gorgeous red and purple swirl. This same effect pops up on W and R as well.
W has a similar swirl.
E has been updated to throw the dagger he is holding
His R clone has a fresh new green tint.
His R clone now explodes with the same daggers he is wielding.

Ward Skins 
While they aren't enabled in the shop just yet, the new ward skins have store images now.

Balance Changes
Vi
  • Assault and Battery no longer applies Denting Blows
  • Assault and Battery damage reduced to 200/325/450 damage from 200/350/500

 Miss out on the previous iterations of the Vi / Snowdown Showdown 2012 PBE patch? No problemo!

  3. Nidalee Splashes ?

    ReplyDelete
  4. I don't like Kat's Splash Art.

    Zigg's could have been much better as well. (PLAIN OUT UGLY!)
    Veigar's is perfect.

    ReplyDelete
  5. i love the nid splash

    ReplyDelete
  6. Katarina's eyes are huge in her splash art ._.

    ReplyDelete
  7. ohmagadohmagag

    ReplyDelete
  8. And Vi is purchased.

    ReplyDelete
  9. It says ward skins on the bottom but there's nothing there! O.O

    ReplyDelete
  10. is that Garen on Katarina splash art??
    he got Katarina for xmas gift..nice :D

    ReplyDelete
  11. theres nothing under ward skins

    ReplyDelete
  12. Is french maid nidalee getting a new splash? Sticking to this is more than dissapointing

    ReplyDelete
  13. Dat Vi splash art. Yup, definitely getting her.

    ReplyDelete
  14. These splash arts are amazing.

    ReplyDelete
  15. Vi is gonna be amazing

    ReplyDelete
  16. The Vi splash looks kind of odd to me. Artistically anyway. Doesn't suit the rest of art League to me, but neither does Disney character Lux.

    ReplyDelete
  17. Damn I didn't liked Vi that much but dat splash so cool

    ReplyDelete
  18. I really hope there's more to Nidalee's splashes than just her base because just doing one is just lazy

    ReplyDelete
  19. i never play Katha..and also Vi is not the Possition i play ( i think she is top)...but with this Skin/new Char i will change my game....another Kata Player is on the run...

    ReplyDelete
  20. Your a disgusting perv.

    ReplyDelete
  21. Vi's splash art is badass

    ReplyDelete
  22. Very disapointed. Was hoping to have a good ol fap to french maid nidalee and slay belle kat. Oh well a mans gotta do what a mans gotta do

    ReplyDelete
  23. OH, the snowman ward is made with A Rabadon's, a Phage, a Pickaxe, and a Null Magic Mantle! Did not notice that before!


    ...these are going to be some freaking expensive wards...

    ReplyDelete
  24. "whenever the sever comes up..." we'll be able to get those wards skins! Copy that TSM!

    ReplyDelete
  25. And they didnt even make up for the removal of the recall animation, with the splash~
    it's pretty simple, not bad, but too simple

    In the other hand, Vi looks delicious, even with that bald part the left side of her head, she still looks badass AND delicous at the same time, those hips are unreal <3 just as i like them

    Nidalee's looks amazing as well, really amazing, only dissapointed on French Maid not having a new splash, after all, she doesnt look like the current splash anymore (for good)

    ReplyDelete
  26. What? ZIggs' SCREAMS snow day. I think it looks good.

    ReplyDelete
  27. Not going to complain. All the skins look really good.


    But, all of them are AP mids...


    Oh I complained.

    ReplyDelete
  28. Well no one cares bout the price unless their perm

    ReplyDelete
  29. Katarina became animu. Vi & Veigar have awesome splashes. Jeez, Bad Santa Veigar is instabuy for me. Who did Vi's splash art? God like detail man. Wish in game models could have that much detail, but then my crap laptop wouldn't be able to run it haha...

    ReplyDelete
  30. I need to get money so I can buy Bad Santa Veigar, that skin is pure awesome

    ReplyDelete
  31. Vi has THE most beautiful splash art in League of Legends. The colour, lighting and theme is overwhelming. Gj riot hope you make more splash arts like this one!

    ReplyDelete
  32. Come on, 3200+875+1465+400 gold for 3 minutes of vision...no way that's worth it.

    ReplyDelete
  33. These Splashes are awesome. katarina, very sexy. I love Vi's and Ziggs as well.

    ReplyDelete
  34. what's that thing flying over there?
    oh look! it's a joke! ~

    ReplyDelete
  35. Vi has a lot of nice voice interactions with Caitlyn and one with Jayce but they should really add the same on those characters to make it better.

    ReplyDelete
  36. Actually if you look closely u see kat coming out of a xmas present while garen is decorating the tree

    ReplyDelete
  37. I don't know if this has always been there but on bad santa veigar after running for a while he does a mini pole vault, if this has been on all his skins I have missed it lol

    ReplyDelete
  38. I liked fiddles shade of blue on his skills :(

    ReplyDelete
  39. disappointed in the fiddles skin. everyone else got cool new Christmas-y particles and audio. and fiddles got re-colors.... and a bit of ice. hope this isn't the final product

    ReplyDelete
  40. only ziggs is funny rest are pure lack of originality

    ReplyDelete
  41. Ziggletons splash is just a little plain.

    ReplyDelete
  42. Great... More Vi nerfs. Not to mention the only amazing skin is Bad Santa Veigar.

    ReplyDelete
  43. Fiddle isn't an AP mid.

    ReplyDelete
  44. Bad news guys... they changed... the dance animation of Nidalee, it's likely the same but shortly...

    ReplyDelete
  45. They should make Kat. moves different in some way like everyone elses, heck they could give her candy canes and she can throw them for her bouncing blades and for her ult DX I mean like, anything

    ReplyDelete
  46. They really should have just added the chinese Nidalee Splashes, those are beautiful. Also, I', quite dissapointed they changed nothing about the Nidalee Remodel as suggested to them...

    ReplyDelete
  47. proud to her call Vi piltovers finest

    ReplyDelete
  48. Her faces are slightly changed. That is the only thing I noticed tho

    ReplyDelete
  49. want a reworked Teemo christmas skin!

    ReplyDelete
  50. I have been searching for a snowdown map for weeks. Is there any chance of this happening?

    ReplyDelete
  51. anyone notice the update on the pvp client with the notes you can attach to your buddies on your friends list?

    ReplyDelete
  52. Vi ultimate was average with Denting Blows, now it's sh*t. 200dmg is like common spell on lvl 6-7.

    ReplyDelete
  53. You are forgetting the CC, +140 bonus AD, the 100%hit chance and AoE damage. I was suprised it aplied denting blows, found it very OP myself.

    ReplyDelete
  54. Has been reported on surrender@20 already

    ReplyDelete
  55. No, Riot commented it already, it would take too much time to rework it into the new map.

    ReplyDelete
  56. Data Mined*

    Pretty sure "Data Minded" is incorrect.

    ReplyDelete
  57. Veigar skin awesome

    ReplyDelete
  58. It's Christmas tree cookies" not "holiday tree cookies".


    I'm sick of all the political correctness around this time of year.


    Other then that, nice updates.

    ReplyDelete
  59. I've used Veigar quite a bit, the pole vault is new.

    ReplyDelete
  60. Did anyone notice they updated end game stats so it shows damage done to champs separately?

    ReplyDelete
  61. "a missing texture was making look all janky and blue." Missing a word there.

    On a more interesting note, I really like all the Veigar effects, esp. the falling ornament. Who hasn't had that happen at some point during the holidays :D

    ReplyDelete
  62. Dark Candy Fiddles is looking awesome, but I feel like his in game doesn't compare well to the awesome splash art. His eyes are squinty and he has less fur on his coat. Anyone else see it?

    ReplyDelete
  63. Also I'll add that his name is Dark Candy, yet there isn't a hint of candy in his kit. I'm hoping they change the crow to a peppermint candy or something.

    ReplyDelete
  64. Vi's splash art is so freakin' amazing!! Love it. :3

    ReplyDelete
  65. FFXIII Lightning, anyone?

    ReplyDelete
  66. Exageration but those are some cute ward skins. Id pay for them. But they better be perm or i will summon a giant slutty ahri in riots office to wreck their office.

    ReplyDelete
  67. the hand on the left in the katarina splash looks almost exactly like the hand in battle bunny riven's splash

    ReplyDelete
  68. Why the downvotes? Ahri and sona <3

    ReplyDelete
  69. Perhaps that was my concern too.
    But it's nothing that won't do.

    Kat's skin really bothers me tho.

    ReplyDelete
  70. this skin is an indirekt shaco buff, the new paticles when he disappears are harder to see than the normal

    ReplyDelete
  71. Lux skin still... ugly (sorry), butomgomgomgOMGOMGOMG the spells are AWESOMEEEEE "fan girl SCREAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAM" (shoop da wh00p incomming)

    ReplyDelete
  72. well i think vi's gaunlets' have different colour than ingame model...

    ReplyDelete
  73. i think what bothers you is the same that bothers me, katarina really doesnt fit being a blonde.

    ReplyDelete
  74. it certainly is amazing that's for sure. Screams of her badassness. The amount of deatail and lighting in the background is making many of the simplistic splash art seems "lazy" (unfortunately where it wont be seen in game at all)
    But.....is that a skirt she's tucked in under her armour? :D

    ReplyDelete
  75. Why do they keep nerfing Vi ? Is she really that overpowered?

    ReplyDelete
  76. Hey Moobeat, im not sure if this is from this patch, but I played a PBE game and at the end, in the resulst appeared "Damage Dealt to Champions", "Phisycal Damage Dealt to Champions" and " Magic Damage Dealt to Champions".

    ReplyDelete
  77. A brunette maybe? That might fit better. Im disapointed in this katarina splash

    ReplyDelete
  78. Zed also has a really nice one. In my opinion a background showing buildings or nature is where they should go instead of elemental effects like nami and thunder zed

    ReplyDelete
  79. French maid and pharaoh. It should come they mentioned that they will remake all her splash arts in the visual update post.

    ReplyDelete
  80. Assassins lol. Op then UP. Thats how it seems. Only few get played

    ReplyDelete
  81. Nid splash looks like Neytiri from Avatar, even the background looks Avatar-ish :)

    ReplyDelete
  82. Well i don't see her hair is blonde , its orange , the lighting of the room makes it look a little like golden orange.
    For me the Splash Art is okay B+ , the model is the "meh"

    ReplyDelete
  83. Since when she is an assassin? she is melee fighter.
    About the nerf i don't think it was needed when Vi have a hard early game because of her CD.

    ReplyDelete
  84. Vi splash... too awesome to handle?

    ReplyDelete
  85. maybe karma rework ? hmm ;/

    ReplyDelete
  86. Just to clarify: Nidalee is AFRICAN, not BLACK lol! African people live natively in Africa, and "black" is a slang term to call African-AMERICANS who descend from Africa but living in America :)

    ReplyDelete
  87. Ahri and sona doesn't have huge eyes

    ReplyDelete
  88. The sledge is taking all the focus in Veiger's art.... & he doesn't even have one. Katarina's skin & art is just lame in my opinion.

    ReplyDelete
  89. black is black the same as white is white. you call someone from south africa white just the same. its a color lol

    ReplyDelete
  90. is it just me, or does the nidalee spalsh art (although nice) seem anatomically incorrect? it's just as if her left leg is misplace if you compare her to where her hip is visible(her stretched right leg). Her arm seems to camouflage it, it just somehow seems to feel wrong to me.


    big fan of vi splash art though :)

    ReplyDelete
  91. No dude, her leg is just fine, although sometimes anatomy may seem very bad but truth is, it is ok! :P


    yeah, Vi art's So good!

    ReplyDelete
  92. well when ppl refer to her as "black champ" they mean African-American black lol

    ReplyDelete
  93. Do I see a Blue Portal passage in Vi's Artwork?

    ReplyDelete
  94. k, thx, must just be cause I'm tired then :)

    ReplyDelete
  95. how much is the slay belle katarina skin going to cost? 975, 520, 487 or 1800? :)

    ReplyDelete
  96. I believe 975 for all holiday skins? It doesn't look anything special

    ReplyDelete
  97. *makes ironic swishing noise...*

    ReplyDelete
  98. yeah, I don't understand why they made a "Dark Candy" skin but it has nothing even remotely related to candy. I was hoping for like a little sinister candy cane bird for his E and a candy blizzard for his ult. Instead they give us this. I'm sick of having one holiday skin be infinitely better than the rest. The Veigar one is amazing and all the others blow chunks.

    ReplyDelete
  99. Actually scratch that last part, the ziggs is also really cool. But Kat and fiddle suck.

    ReplyDelete
  100. plain and stupid fan service, for the QQ bitches over the kitty kat katarina

    ReplyDelete
  101. Finally new splash for Nid! Much better than current one.


    Lux skin is still bad. Sux skin!

    ReplyDelete
  102. You know what I noticed on new Nidalee splash art? She's missing her earrings... either that or her necklace is also the same color, which isn't so on her model (dark brown necklace, not white)

    ReplyDelete
  103. Hey , i just noticed that Vi's in-game model is different then Vi's splash art ....so Vi will get remodeled more sexxyyy~ ^_^

    ReplyDelete
  104. http://i.imgur.com/ziX7i.png Right one is definitely better. Hope they change it.

    ReplyDelete
  105. Hopefully these will be out by the end of the week? Christmas is creeping up quickly.

    ReplyDelete
  106. B+? b+ agaaaain? Your to light on it. In my opinion anyway

    ReplyDelete
  107. Because their ionians which is the lol equivalent of asia i believe

    ReplyDelete
  108. Don't tell me I'm the only one who finds Vi's art a bit strange.

    ReplyDelete
  109. It's because he is made of candycanes. Also we can hope it might be a 520 skin, I doubt the katarina one will be 520 though.

    ReplyDelete
  110. fiddlestick's skin makes him the winter warlock pay no attention to the name

    ReplyDelete
  111. kats b should be her death lotusing ornaments onto a christmas tree

    ReplyDelete
  112. Good change on Vi's Q. Q applying Denting Blows was horribly OP, as Vi could Q-AA-E for half of her lane opponent's hp almost instantly. This definitely balanced her out a ton, and she's still very strong. We'll see if she needs more nerfs or not - probably only some number tweaking from here on out!

    ReplyDelete
  113. Why slutty? Lol. Anyway I'm afraid they will be again some 'Seasonal' ward skins.

    ReplyDelete
  114. And what about the hint of Dark then? The incomplete particles we had a few days ago were scary as hell with all that randomly amassed black everywhere... Almost liked them better than the new ones.

    ReplyDelete
  115. Yet she ain't even black. Her skin is darker than default but still it is lighter than Malzahar's, which also isn't that black either.

    ReplyDelete
  116. I really wish Lux's laser had a bit more realism. When i say that, i mean having the laser start small and then grow huge as it moves, not just flat out being huge and having that wierd animation [look at the pic where Steel Legion Lux uses her ult and you'll know what i mean].

    ReplyDelete
  117. Noticed. More explicit content getting censored for kids, I'm afraid.

    ReplyDelete
  118. Assault and Battery is her ultimate.

    ReplyDelete
  119. well B+ means there is A- / A / A+ or S as higher rating :P.
    Its just my opinion , the only reason i may buy this skin is the splash art , the model is so and so , was hoping for better , but i think being a holiday skin (will be disabled after) is enough reason for me to buy it.
    And trust me if i was to vote about keeping it the same way as it is right now or changing it and delay the skin for 1 week or more then i would vote for changing it.

    ReplyDelete
  120. Oh look... Veigar is throwing christmas trees. This is in no way related to his character, better remove it.

    OR WHAT RIOT?

    F**king

    Seriously god why.

    ReplyDelete
  121. Yep. So Vi is still as OP as ever it seems. Lols I failed hard.

    ReplyDelete
  122. So Katarina is not Ionian. Still didn't get the point.

    ReplyDelete
  123. Hopefully not. Hate the new 'semi-legendary' format

    ReplyDelete
  124. Hopefully it's not fully polished yet as it says it's still missing particles. May be it will be shipped slightly better than it is now even though the promise is a big one

    ReplyDelete
  125. I want to give a gift, the pain!

    ReplyDelete
  126. Still waiting for steel legion lux updates :) i wonder if metalwing kayle is on work as well, or maybe just that idea is on the shelf atm.
