Gangplank Update & Captain Gangplank

As announced earlier today, Gangplank's appearance is changing to reflect the events that happened during the story of the Bilgewater: Burning Tides event.  Check out the "Gangplank returns" post or Gangplank's updated Champion Update page for more information.

For those who haven't kept up with the event, here's a quick TL;DR following the story's epilogue Miss Fortune, who was seeking revenge for her mother's murder, blew up Gangplank ship in an attempt to kill him. Gangplank managed to survive the attack but lost his arm and control over Bilgewater, which has has broken out into war as various gangs fight for power after hearing word of Gangplank's death.

Here's a look at Gangplank's new base appearance:


To go with his new look, Gangplank also has a new voiceover on the PBE! Clocking in at 6:30 minutes, this voiceover includes all new lines and new champion interactions:

Gangplank's "old new" voiceover is now only on the Captain Gangplank skin, all other skins will now use this voiceover as it is the base voiceover.

Gangplank also has a new champion select quote:

"Neither the flames nor the depths could claim me"

The pre-Burning Tides appearance that originally shipped as his base appearance with 5.14 is now the Captain Gangplank skin. Players who own and have played at least one matchmade game as Gangplank before the end of the event on August 10th will receive Captain Gangplank for free - announcement and more details available here. 

Captain Gangplank

As noted above, Captain Gangplank uses this voiceover instead of the new base voiceover.

While you can obtain this skin for free by owning GP and playing him prior the Bilgewater: Burning Tides event ending on August 10th, its price in the PBE shop is listed as 975 RP.

In-client Bios for GP & MF

Short in-game bios for both Gangplank and Miss Fortune have also been added in today's patch.

''I was cutting throats and sinking Noxian war galleys when you were still pissing your britches, boy. You don't want to take me on.'' As unpredictable as he is brutal, the dethroned reaver king known as Gangplank is feared far and wide. Where he goes, death and ruin follow, and such is his infamy and reputation that the merest sight of his black sails on the horizon causes panic among even the hardiest crew.
You can find Gangplank's full length introduction story on his champion page.

Miss Fortune
"'The bigger the risk, the bigger the bounty.'' Beauty and danger: There are few who can match Miss Fortune in either. One of Bilgewater's most infamous bounty hunters, she built her legend upon a swathe of bullet-riddled corpses and captured ne'er-do-wells. The booming echoes of her twin pistols in the port city's reeking wharfs and scavenger shanties are sure signs of another warrant from the Bounty Board being settled.
You can find Miss Fortune's full length introduction story on her champion page.
