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.
- All of the previously documented AIR client only changes are now in-game and ready for testing.
- For reference, here are the current set of PBE changes vs live:
- Riftwalk (R) Range increased to 500 from 450
- Riftwalk (R) Mana cost reduced to 50 from 60
- Riftwalk (R) Cooldown changed to 6/4/2 from 7/5/3
