[Valentine's Day] Ward Skin

In our second patch, Riot has added a new Heartseeker Ward skin!

Heartseeker Ward

640 RP

Here's Riot KateyKhaos with a bugs and feedback thread for the Heartseeker Ward!
"See your enemy's love (or gank) coming from a mile away with the Heartseeker Ward! 
The Heartseeker Ward is 640 RP each and includes: 
  • All new model and texture!
  • New particles! (Oooh, pink sparkles!)
  • New animations!
  • New sounds
The Heartseeker Ward is 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 test to answer them!"

Skin Updates

Several of the new skins for this PBE cycle have received various tweaks and updates!

Heartseeker Varus

Heartseeker Varus also now uses the same voiceover as Arclight Varus, which takes away the extra filter effects of his base voiceover.

His Q animation has also been fixed, he now holds the arrow correctly whereas before it was bugged and just sort of pointed straight down at the ground.

Inquisitor Nautilus

Inquisitor Nautilus has also received more tweaks, again to his color and his weapon.

Marauder Warwick

Marauder Warwick has received tweaks to his armor color and shine.

Marauder Ashe

Marauder Ashe is up next, receiving minor tweaks to her armor shading and her color of her neck fur.

Texture Rebalances

Following Kennen's texture rebalance yesterday, we have a few more in today's update. Remember that texture rebalances are updates to texture for older skins to better align them with today's art style. They do not replace visual updates.


White Mage Veigar

Curling Veigar

Veigar Greybeard

Leprechaun Veigar

Baron Von Veigar

Superb Villian Veigar

Here's a video compare for the Veigar texture update and his skins:

No texture rebalances for Bad Santa or Final Boss Veigar.


Spectral Fiddlesticks

Union Jack Fiddlesticks

Bandito Fiddlesticks

Pumpkinhead Fiddlesticks

Fiddle Me Timbers

Surprise Party Fiddlesticks

Here's a video compare for the Fiddlesticks texture update and his skins:

No texture rebalances for Dark Candy Fiddlesticks.

We also have a texture rebalance for Lord Mordekaiser!

Lord Mordekaiser


The default ward skin now has a spawn animation - it "wiggles" when you put it down!
