6/13 PBE Update: New Udyr skin and many balance changes.

Posted on at 1:28 PM by Moobeat
The PBE has been updated! While there has only been a air client update and no game update, we have been presented with a tease on a new Udyr skin. Granted we can't actually see it and it doesn't have a splash we at least know he's up for some new duds.
Continue reading for info on some rune page improvements coming in 3.9 and a slew of balance changes.

( Warning: PBE content is tentative and iterative. What you see below may not be representative of what will be pushed to live servers. )

New Skins
This new skin is referenced in the files, having a blank splash. Nothing to show in game yet.

[3.9] Rune page improvements on PBE
Here is Damiya with the details:
"In the next PBE patch, we’re making a few quality-of-life improvements to the way runes work. Most of the changes are subtle, and you might not notice them unless you’re looking for them, but they should make things a bit more responsive the next time you’re setting up a rune build.

Here’s a rundown of the changes:
  • If you filter out all the runes of a specific type (marks, seals, glyphs, or quintessences), the name of that category now turns grey to indicate it’s empty
  • Reverting the changes in the runebook no longer changes which page you’re editing
  • When browsing your rune inventory, you can now open more than one rune type at a time
  • When you’re right clicking or double clicking to rapidly add runes you don’t have to wait for the animation to finish playing
  • We’ve shifted the rune slots slightly to reduce certain gaps
  • The scrollbars on your rune inventory and stats pane should be more responsive and easier to click
  • The dividers between effects in the stats pane now scale down when the scrollbar appears
  • Dragging a rune into place no longer highlights slots near the drop target
  • Rune combiner animations are simpler
  • Rune combiner filters are now more consistent with rune page filters

The next time you hit the PBE, try fiddling with your runebook for a bit. We’d love to hear your feedback on the improvements, along with any bugs you uncover while testing."

Balance Changes
 Note: These changes are NOT in game yet but have been data mined from the AIR client files. As such, that might mean Riot is quite satisfied with the numbers on these changes.
