You may recognize the two Inquisitor skins as the mysterious mislabeled splash art that hit the PBE last cycle!


Return of Tristana Splash Art

After being removed late in the 5.2 PBE cycle, the new Tristana splash to go with her champion update is back on the PBE but has not been changed yet. Ququroon noted earlier that they are still iterating and polishing this splash art.

Friends List Improvements

When you hover over a friend on your friend list or in a chat room, there is now a pop up window that tells you their current status, their last played champion, and "playstyle".

Miscellaneous 

Another file mentioning "SonaDJ" slipped into today's update. Still nothing tangible to share, only text.

The "Camera Move Speed" option has been split into mouse and keyboard options.

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.
