Reaper Soraka Updates

Reaper Soraka, an upcoming skin that was first added to the PBE in October 8th's update, has received significant color changes in today's update. Here's a comparison: 

and here's an updated set of ability screen shots!



Singed Fling into Mega Adhesive 

Singed has new gooey VFX when he successfully uses Fling (E) to throw a target into his Mega Adhesive (W), a new mechanic introduced this PBE cycle.


Snow Day Singed also has his own, snowy variant of this VFX!

Check out our earlier PBE coverage for a better look at Singed's model and texture updates!

Preaseason Changes

Today's patch includes a few tweaks to the wealth of Preseason changes that are currently testing on the PBE!  Here's a run down of what is new in today's update, including a new model for SCUTTLE CRAB, a buff to DESOLATING SMITE, and a change to INHIBITOR TOWERS.

The SCUTTLE CRAB, the new jungle camp that inhabits the river and grants a speed shrine when killed, has a new model and has been re-enabled for testing!
[Ally Speed Shrine (missing vfx)]
[Enemy speed shrine]

Scuttle Crab
Large Monster - Area Buff
180 second respawn time
An elusive wandering pacifist. Slowing or Rooting this monster causes it to take massive damage from attacks. Killing this monster grants a Speed Shrine in this river, granting bonus Movement Speed to allies who pass through and passively providing vision.

Desolating Smite (Ranger's Trailblazer's Smite uprade) now also restores 20% of missing health and mana.

The new BEAM attack of the Inhibitor tower now slows targets by (~10%).

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.

Champions
Nocturne
  • Unspeakable Horror ( E) now includes "Nocturne gains massively increased movement speed toward feared enemies."
  • [Note: There is currently NO change in functionality on the PBE, seems it isn't hooked up yet. ]
