Infernal Nasus Login Screen

Infernal Nasus, the upcoming Legendary Nasus skin, now has his own hellish login screen.


New  Item Icons

New icons for Frost Queen's Claim, Spellthief's Edge  Relic Shield, Emblem of Valor, and Face of the Mountain.


Self gifting Mystery Gifts

In a recent PBE update, the option to simply purchase a mystery gift, rather than unlocking it for a friend, was added to the shop for testing.

Here's a comment on the matter from Hippalus:
"Many players asked for it because they didn't have friends to trade mystery gifts with."
and in response to someone saying "now I don't have to have friends!"
"That's why we're testing this - some players were frustrated that they needed a friend to purchase them a mystery skin."
He continued:
"If this feature is made available, it will not only have the daily limit of 3 purchases, but will also be live for a very limited time. Days, not weeks."
