The PBE has been updated and this time there is ACTUALLY a game patch! It's looking like it's mostly the same changes we saw last update. This means we can get our first look at Aatrox and the new skins, even if they aren't yet available for testing.
( Note: PBE content is tentative and iterative! This means everything you see below is subject to change. )
*EDIT*: Looks like the second patch rolled back most of these changes.
Blood Well ( Passive )
Upon taking fatal damage, Aatrox extracts the current blood in the well and recovers it as Health over 1.5 seconds. When using an ability that costs Health, Aatrox stores 70% of the self-inflicted damage into the Blood Well.The Blood Well has a base of 35% of the max pool, 225 second Cooldown, and decays 3% of the well a second while out of combat.
Dark Flight ( Q )
Aatrox takes flight and slams down at a targeted location, dealing
60/95/130/165/200 lowered from 70/115/160/205/250 (+0.7 AD) physical damage to all nearby enemies and knocking up targets at the center of impact for 1/1/1/1/1 second.
Cost: 10 % of Current Health // Range: 650 // Cooldown: 16/15/14/13/12

Blades of Torment ( E )
Aatrox unleashes and sends forward the power of his blade, dealing
65/100/135/170/205 lowered from 75/120/165/210/255 (+ .6 AP ) Magic Damage to all enemies hit and slowing them by 40/40/40/40/40% for 1.75/2/2.25/2.5/2.75 seconds.

Massacre ( R )
On activation Aatrox draws in the blood of his foes, dealing magic damage to all enemy champions around him equal to 15/15/15% + 0.01% of their current Health.
For the next 12/12/12 seconds, Aatrox's Maximum Health increases by 100/175/250 + 50/65/80 per champion hit, Attack Speed increases by 25/35/45% + 10/10/10% per champion hit, and he gains 175 Attack Range.
