1/27 PBE Update: Bouquet Ward Skin

Posted on at 12:06 PM by Moobeat
Update: There was a error in today's Dr. Mundo changes and the wrong tool tip was changed. Instead of W's health per sec cost being lowered, his CC reduction has been lowered to 10/13/16/18/20% from 10/15/20/25/30%. Source.

Reminder: Team Builder queues are on the PBE for testing between 1 pm and 5 pm PST today and tomorrow! 

The PBE has been updated! In addition to the typical set of tentative balance changes, we also have a new Bouquet Ward skin!

A few files have popped up indicating Xerath has/will have special taunts for Syndra and Thresh. Nothing tangible yet but I'll keep you updated!

Balance Changes

* Remember *: The PBE is a testing grounds for new, tentative, and sometimes radical changes. The changes you see below may be lacking context or other accompanying changes that didn't make it in - don't freak out!  These are not official notes.


Dr. Mundo
  • Infected Cleaver ( Q ) slow changed to "Between 1 and 2 seconds, increasing with the distance the cleaver has traveled" from flat 2 seconds.
  • Burning Agony ( W ) health per second cost Crowd control reduction lowered to 10/13/16/18/20% from 10/15/20/25/30%
  • [ Context: Seems this is an error - while the tool tip lists a change to his health per second cost , the change is actually  his CC Control reduction. See this post for more info ]

[ Reminder: Be aware that Kassadin's W was been reworked and he received heavy balance changes in earlier PBE patches. I suggest you take those into account when thinking about these changes. ]

  • Command : Protect ( E ) tooltip now lists grants Magic Resist again.

  • Last Breath ( R ) range reduced to 1200 from 1500 [ will need to confirm this is an actual change, not an indicator change ]
