1/9 PBE Update: Thresh and AW Kayle splash arts!

Posted on at 5:23 PM by Moobeat
The PBE has been updated with several beautiful splash arts!
Continue reading for a heavy dose of PBE content including new splash arts, balance changes, a change to Yi's portrait, a new profile medal, and more!

( Warning: PBE content is highly tentative and subject to change! Some of this information may have been datamined and could likely be erroneous. )



New Splash Arts

 Thresh
Thresh's release skin
The name for this one isn't specificed but obviously it is nautical themed.
Aether Wing Kayle
FYI: Aether Wing Kayle was made available for testing before tonight's patch. Have at it!
Thresh's Ability Icons and New Names
Thresh finally received his own set of ability icons.
Along with this three of his abilities have had their names changed:  Shackle ( Q ) is now "Death Sentence", Lantern Toss ( W ) is now "Dark Passage", and Sweep ( E ) is now "Flay"


Master Yi new Portrait
Master Yi's champion portrait has been adjusted to be much more zoomed out, presumably to include more of his fantastic braided beared.
Here it is in the wild

New Profile Medal
There seems to be a strange new profile medal. Not sure what exactly it's intended for but it's currently showing up on people who have played ranked games on the PBE. None of the other ranked medals have been changed. My guess is this is just the new medal that displays when you haven't finished your qualifier matches for the season.
Here it is in action:

Balance Changes
Note: These changes are relative to the last set of PBE changes. To try to avoid confusion, I've listed the current live server value in parenthesis if the ability was changed in a previous PBE patch.

Champions:
Evelynn
  • Agony's Embrace cooldown changed to 150/120/90 from 160/120/80 ( current live server value is 120/90/60 ).
  • Agony's Embrace range lowered to 650 from 800
Thresh 
  • Lantern Toss ( W ) shield amount reduced to 60/90/120/150/180 from 60/100/140/180/200
  • Lantern Toss ( W ) mana cost increased to 50/55/60/65/70 from 40 at all ranks.

Items:
Crystalline Flask*
  • Cost increased to 345 from 225
  • Health restored changed to 120 over 12 seconds from 100 over 10 seconds.
  • Mana Restored changed to 60 over 12 seconds from 40 over 10 seconds.

* = This data comes from one of the game files but the tool tips have not been updated and the "new" cost is not acting right. It's a strange situation because you CAN NOT buy the flask, in game, for less than 345 BUT when you do buy it it only subtracts 225 gold from your total. The PBE is a strange place.

Miss out on the previous updates in this PBE cycle? Fear not!

    ReplyDelete
  12. Evelynn is one of the most effective champs in the game, Top 3 in highest win ratio and in KDA. These results can be seen at lolking.com if you want to check them out for yourself. But AP eve has been cleaning house world wide.

    ReplyDelete
  13. That is actually the buff...

    ReplyDelete
  14. He says it because of the last PBE nerf, not because of how Eve is on live servers.

    ReplyDelete
  15. Ignore the imposter, she doesn't even have a portrait

    ReplyDelete
  16. this is kind of awkward :/

    ReplyDelete

    HOW MANY OF YOU ARE THERE?

    ReplyDelete
  23. Kayle must be on her way to construct additional pylons

    ReplyDelete
  24. Probably two. You know, one for the light side and one for the dark. Like split personalities.

    ReplyDelete
  25. I kinda wish Kayle gets a bright Halo with her E still. Kinda like a blue aura or neon lighting.

    ReplyDelete
  26. Kayles Face looks a bit odd doesnt it?

    ReplyDelete
  27. Manly Cthulu Support.

  30. Thresh's skin kind of looks like davy jones.

    ReplyDelete
  31. Don't mind my doubles, they're just acting a bit excited about that "rework" thing.

    ReplyDelete
  32. That Kayle's art looks amazing.

    ReplyDelete
  33. They canned her because her skin was crap. It was to much of a commando lux skin remake I believe.

    ReplyDelete
  34. LET NO JOYFUL VOICE BE HEARD

    ReplyDelete

    WATCH ALISTAR HEADBUTTING YOU BACK, OR THRESH HOOKING YOU :D

    ReplyDelete
  48. Sometimes simple is better. I have no idea what The Box is, but I'm already worried.

    ReplyDelete
  49. Oh Crystalline Flask... what have they've done to you... ; ___;



    There goes the great tactics of being able to build flask with faerie charm! I'm going to miss it for my mid-laners and supports.

    ReplyDelete
  50. No cameras in my private space please.

    ReplyDelete
  51. why nerf Evelynn's ult, nerf her "Dark Frenzy" by lower the movement speed. thats the problem with her.

    ReplyDelete
  52. Potato, the best champion everJanuary 9, 2013 at 6:43 PM

    thresh ultimate, create a box with 5 walls, if you pop a wall (lvl 3 wall) you will get 99% slow (nasus slow NOOO D:) and 550 damage + 1 per 1.0 ap, the other walls hits half after the first is popped, and slow for 50%

    ReplyDelete
  53. Screw that. I look like an Egyptian hooker in this damn picture,

    ReplyDelete
  54. Watch my ally Thresh pull me out with his dark passage :D

    ReplyDelete
  55. Something like "Sunken Thresh" or "Thresh Jones"/"Davy Thresh" I'd imagine.

    ReplyDelete
  56. Potato, the best champion everJanuary 9, 2013 at 6:44 PM

    WATCH OUR SYNDRA KNOCK YOU BACK FROM BEHIND :D

    ReplyDelete
  57. is it just me? or does Kayle look like she has sperm inside her mouth..?
    maybe i watch too much pronz...

    ReplyDelete
  58. Yeah Rengar. This is the institute of WAR not the institute of GRAMMAR & SPELLING

    ReplyDelete
  61. Potato, the best champion everJanuary 9, 2013 at 6:49 PM

    blitzcrank jungle appears to gank? im out of ideas ._.

    ReplyDelete
  62. NOOOO NOT Evelynn..... That champion isnt even as OP as people think. Just because people don't know how to lane against her doesnt make he super OP. Why don't you change Master Yi's AP ratio. AP yi is such a faceroll champ compared to Evelynn. Evelynn getting nerfed is outrageous. Buffing her up then you're going to nerf her back to the ground. Thanks Riot

    ReplyDelete
  63. Potato, the best champion everJanuary 9, 2013 at 6:52 PM

    i agreed they are overnerfing her a bit, but master yi ap is not op, if you got beat by one probably you didnt know how to fight him, even without having to stop his meditate you can win against him

    ReplyDelete
  64. His hook gets blocked by a minion

    ReplyDelete
  65. AP yi, alpha, then heal.... then u stun/knockback/up etc and pretty much insta kill him its a troll build thats easily countered, evelynn with torment and a witchcap isn't she can just run around faster than everyone and spam her q till your dead.

    ReplyDelete
  66. Was i the only one that thought of Hecarim when seeing Thresh's splash art?

    ReplyDelete
  67. Potato, the best champion everJanuary 9, 2013 at 6:54 PM

    ReplyDelete
  75. Messing around with the playthings

    ReplyDelete
  76. Nosejobs gone wrong.

    ReplyDelete
  77. Look above!
    "SO much untapped Karmas" - Riot
    (waiting to see on Karma's champ spotlight Phreak's playing her as a Jungler with tons of damage [triforce])!

    ReplyDelete
  78. Jungle Karma 2 stronk.

    ReplyDelete
  79. Syndra throws potatos at you.

    ReplyDelete
  80. build triforce! there's the only way.

    ReplyDelete
  81. As long as you ignore little miss civilized in the maid outfit up there.
    (I swear she's the most boring skin out of all of us)

    ReplyDelete
  82. Vilemaw and my spiderlings finds Frech Maid Nidalee sexier to be their meal, actually they don't find her boring. My skin Nidalee! is A spider flower :'( (cries)

    ReplyDelete
  83. Elise what are you doing.
    Get down from there.
    Elise go home, you're drunk.

    ReplyDelete
  84. The Thresh skin is obviously a knock on Davy Jones' locker, so that's possibly the name.

    ReplyDelete
  85. Seriously, enough with the Yi portrait.

    ReplyDelete
  86. He's angry because he's just bottom feeder :) Ps. Twitch I've got that new shampoo for you <3

    ReplyDelete
  87. It will probably just be Abyssal or Deep Sea.

    ReplyDelete
  88. Stalking Gragas a bit too much I'd say.

    ReplyDelete
  89. Im just a bit depressed, Vilemaw don't understand my feelings, he eaten everyone I bring to him, and said at least you can have Fizz. But damn! I hate fish I prefer another type of meat :'(

    ReplyDelete
  90. hopefully the tresh skin will have more voice lines, featuring RELEASE THE KRAKEN when he ults

    ReplyDelete
  91. Cough....wait did Rammus just utter a whole 3 sentences???!

    ReplyDelete
  92. IMO the old master yi portrait looks better..
    Why don't Riot just zoom out Morgana's / Lux's, instead of Yi?

    ReplyDelete
  93. Well this is unfortunate...

    ReplyDelete
  94. Well this is weird..

    ReplyDelete
  95. The void showed me this! The End is nigh!

    ReplyDelete
  96. KARMAS


    KARMAS EVERYWHERE


    (and this update don't even have her)

    ReplyDelete
  97. remember Syndra is untouchable...

    ReplyDelete
  98. back to buying a faerie charm instead of a crystalline flask first as a support

    ReplyDelete
  99. You and your copies are waiting...
    Well more Karmas, less starve for Vilemaw.

    ReplyDelete
  100. Enemy Thresh, give me your soul!

    ReplyDelete
  101. Still disabled, oh well....

    ReplyDelete
  102. Support? I'm an ADC!

    ReplyDelete
  103. Aether Wing Kayle art looks like trash. Hope it's not legendary.

    ReplyDelete
  104. I would but my picture is superior

    ReplyDelete
  105. It's all smoke and mirrors.

    ReplyDelete
  106. My copies are waiting, but they don't know me. Please don't eat me though, I just bought this dress!

    ReplyDelete
  107. It's not my decision, It's Vilemaw who decides if you are suitable or not to be his meal.

    ReplyDelete
  108. If they don't have the steel legion lux skin on pbe soon my head will explode

    ReplyDelete
  109. It's quite good except for her enormous face

    ReplyDelete
  110. In the The Shadow Isles!!!

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  112. OMG, Its Davy Jones from Pirates of the Caribbean.

    ReplyDelete
  113. How abou "Last Room" or "Doom Walls" ?

    ReplyDelete
  114. Where is mah Karma update you darn dirty apes!?! "sniff" i've been begging for it since it was announced! T^T

    ReplyDelete
  115. False: It's just like Veigar's Event Horizon, blinks like Flash and Arcane Shift will pass unharmed but dashes like Shadow Dash and Quick Draw will collide and cause the effect to activate.

    ReplyDelete
  116. New Profile Medal LOOKS LIKE AETHER WING KAYLE'S NECKLACE!!!

    ReplyDelete
  117. The release skin is Definitely Naut Thresh.

    ReplyDelete
  118. The skin is nice, but that art is too.... "Not Kayle". I really like kayle, but that artwork looks kinda derpy :c

    ReplyDelete
  119. It be me matey, Davy Jones Thresh!

    ReplyDelete
  120. ...why is evelynn getting nerfed so much...?

    ReplyDelete
  121. Totally not Lee Sin.January 9, 2013 at 9:05 PM

    I like Yi's old portrait. He looks tiny now lmao.

    ReplyDelete
  122. It should be like... Ulit-mega-soul-eating-hexbox of fiery death.

    ReplyDelete
  123. Why not Zoidberg?

    ReplyDelete
  124. RELEASE THE KRAKEN Tresh

    and the box.... is actually not a box.

    ReplyDelete
  125. wow Cho'Gath has been pretty rought recently, better nerf Evelynn

    ReplyDelete
  126. welcome back my old friend of boots. 3 pots. we had fun while it lasted actually being able to sustain on champs that have no innate sustain.

    ReplyDelete
  127. Battlecast SkarnerJanuary 9, 2013 at 10:20 PM

    I keep calling the thing "Walls" though, plus I had a square in mind for a Box, not a pentagon.

    Watch yourself step on a mushroom that you didn't see because you spent all your gold on a Banshee's and hadn't got enough left for oracle's. Not like it will make you go to DA BOX but it will help our syndra and thresh kill you. HA! (with Lulu's voice)

    ReplyDelete
  130. Васил ЧуковJanuary 9, 2013 at 10:33 PM

    But even more it does fit perfectly thresh's unnamed release skin.
    EDIT: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eN5ExwsXUiQ

    ReplyDelete
  131. buy iceborn gauntlet on the classic skin... it feels like a little brother of kel'thuzad...pretty cool :D

    ReplyDelete
  132. And I can't start Machete + Flask for Jungle Cho D:

    ReplyDelete
  133. The name of his ultimate is ridiculous. And so many champions here left me... thirsty.

    ReplyDelete
  134. Evelynn isn't THAT overpowered, its just that no one calls mias or uses pink wards. The Cooldown needed a nerf, with 40% CDR at max rank, Eve has an aoe % of MAX Health Ultimate every 36 seconds. The Range nerf is gonna hurt. Now if you really gotta think about committing to a kill, because they'll see you before you ult.

    ReplyDelete
  135. How come the didn't nerf me again ... : / someone water me so i can bloom out from this dream

    ReplyDelete
  136. Not one woman in the league has a monobrow... not even Vi...

    ReplyDelete
  137. Don't Worry ... i can help you catch your prey ;) xoxo ...

    ReplyDelete
  138. I disagree and appearently riot does too. They prolly liked "The Box" and didnt change it. Besides i think its fitting.

    ReplyDelete
  139. Fine. I'll gank you with my ult + our team kills you.

    ReplyDelete
  140. I don't think that's actually a good idea...

    ReplyDelete
  141. No, you are a support. Now go back to your lane and watch the ADC farm.
    But bring some wards too, for the dragon.

    ReplyDelete
  142. only 1 skin release this patch? i was waiting for the 2nd one to leak..

    ReplyDelete
  143. skin is an octopus sort of thing, pirate of the carribean related?

    ReplyDelete
  144. Your soul will come to serve MeEeEeEeEe


    *whish brings up a good question, what would I do if he got his hands on all of Thresh's souls* hehehehehehehehe

    ReplyDelete
  145. WTF IS THAT NEEEERF??? Are they going to destroy her again and take 2 more YEARS to remake her?!?!?

    ReplyDelete
  146. cthulhu tresh would be an awesome name!

    ReplyDelete
  147. The location from that splashart looks so much like Icecrown o_O

    ReplyDelete
  148. wtf riot doesn't want us to have flask? we can buy 9 hp pots for the same effect

  150. His skin looks amazing *o* Is that Nautilus under him?

    ReplyDelete
  151. They should call the thresh skin thresh from the deep/depths

    ReplyDelete
  152. It looks like cinematic dominin trailer lux...

    ReplyDelete
  153. Sure, make her ultimate unable to kill. Totally ok. <.< But hey, Vi has ridiculous mobility and CC and can dish out tremendous damage, let's fix her bugs so she becomes even stronger. *derp*

    ReplyDelete
  154. the zoom out for yi doesn't feel necessary to me, it looks a bit awkward when most icons' zoom rates are quite in uniform.

    ReplyDelete
  155. Don't be so cocky fireman !

    ReplyDelete
  156. Well..That second skin should be named something like "Threshy Jones" because he looks like Davy Jones from Pirates of the Caribbean.

    ReplyDelete
  157. Then its a bug with katarina's shunpo and his ult xD

    ReplyDelete
  158. Does anyone else feel like I should be from the shadow isles? like even by chance Hecarims brother?

    ReplyDelete
  159. I like big boobies too, but not for karma, who is supposed to be a spiritualist woman, i mean, if you let karma show her boobies, like sona, katarina and so on it won't be serious, this is my opinion

    ReplyDelete
  160. Well maybe if you'd read your own lore....

    ReplyDelete
  161. as you can see eve is pretty 100% allways banned on tournaments and riot knows how to balance champions, all champions are equaly stronkkk

    ReplyDelete
  162. So a 36 sec CD AOE % of Max Hp Ult is balanced?


    They are nerfing her so that noobs can't mash buttons and kill people with her so easily.

    ReplyDelete
  163. They nerfed her to hell before and took them 2 YEARS for that remake, now they're changing too much.
