New Ashe Icons

Just like Soraka in an earlier update, Ashe has a received a new set of ability icons !

( Passive, Q , W, E , R ) 

( Debuff icon for her Q slow ) 

Her portrait has also been adjusted. It's zoomed in more and is much brighter.

Here's a comparison between the champion page on the PBE vs Live, showing off the differences in icons and the portrait:

Heartseeker Ashe Updates

The work in progress Heartseeker Ashe got a few changes in today's PBE update!

The visual effects for her passive's "bow shimmer" have been updated. They are now pink.

She also got tweaks to the sounds on a few of her abilities. No video just yet.

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.

If you are concerned about changes being reverted, see this post by Meddler:
"Changes on the PBE are there to be tested. Often, they'll test well and we'll put them in the next patch. In some cases though, such as those you're talking about, we won't be happy with things and will pull them out again, either because our goals have changed, we haven't got enough testing on them yet or we want to try a different approach. "
In a different thread , ricklessabandon also commented:
"... we're in this brief period in which we want to wrap up stuff for 4.2..."
