New Poro Ward Skins

Today's update features three new poro themed ward skins, which when combined with the three from the 4.21 PBE cycle, bring us up to a total of six!

Here's RiotBrokenSword with a bugs & feedback thread for the three new poro wards:
"What's better than three poro wards? Six, of course! We'll be adding three more poro wards into the mix! Poro wards are now available in the Dragonslayer, Underworld and Battlecast varieties! 
These poro wards will be 640 RP each and include:
  • All new models and textures!
  • New particles!
  • New animations!
  • New sounds!
Note: (12/12) Sounds for these wards are not in game yet! 
These are now available to play on PBE! We always find bug reports and feedback super helpful, so feel free to comment in the thread below! Likewise, if you've got any questions, post 'em here, and we'll do our best to answer them!"
He also mentioned they would not be out in time for Snowdown:
"Unfortunately no. These will ship in the first patch of the new year."

Now for a better look:

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
Xerath
  • Shocking Orb (E) tooltip now lists stun scales up to 2.25 seconds instead of 2 seconds.
  • [Context: May just be a tooltip fix, not seeing any Xerath files updated this patch]

Items
Guardian's Horn
  • Base health regen increased to 125% from 120%

Zz'Rot Portal
  • Now has an additional unique passive that "Grants bonus attack damage and ability power equal to 25% of Armor and Magic resistance while near Void Gates. Voidspawn Created by this item also gain this bonus"
  • [Context: Riot Reinboom noted  "Zz'rot on the PBE now scales off your Armor and MR. This will likely not stay (atleast in this form), looking for input on the stat binding." and "It won't stay."]

Trinkets
Oracle's Lens
  • Cost reverted back to 475 from 250.
  • [Context: Was previously lowered in price (along with other tier 3 trinkets) in a previous patch. Now back to same price as on live.]

Monsters
Baron
  • Base HP reduced to 7000 from 8800
  • [Note: There may be other changes here that I'm not able to mine. Will look into it!]
