Points of Interest from the 5.18 PBEHere's a brief look at a few of the new things included in patch 5.18 including things mentioned above in the patch notes and things discovered during the last PBE cycle! Most of this coverage includes preview screen shots and video taken during the 5.18 PBE cycle and may vary from what is pushed to live.
Upcoming Champion SkinsPatch 5.18 is set to include ONE new champion skin - Championship Kalista! We'll have a full preview up once this new skin is released and available for purchase.
New Ward SkinTo go with the new Championship Kalista skin we have a new 2015 Championship Ward skin!
2015 Championship Ward
New Summoner IconsWe also have several new summoner icons included in 5.18, including summoner icons for River Scuttler, Wolves, Raptors, and Krugs. No release details yet!
2015 WC EmblemsWhile we haven't heard any official details yet, a set of World Championship EMBLEMS were also spotted during the 5.18 PBE cycle - one for each of the 16 qualified teams.
On the PBE, equipping one of the new 2015 World Championship WC summoner icons makes your in-game mastery emote (Ctrl 6 by default) display the new team emblem in-game!
HUD UpdatesAs mentioned above, summoner names are now back on the scoreboard and a ping button has been re-added near the upper left of the mini map.
"They Are Coming" teaser #2 - Lamb & Wolf Mask
Another in-game teaser for our next champion is headed to live in 5.18 - this teaser will causeLamb & Wolf masks to spawn randomly on champion death!
Here's a video of the effect forced to activate in-game, which include various vfx in addition to masks:
- While you won't actually recall to base since that is disabled on ARAM, you can now use your recall hotkey (B) to play your recall animation in ARAM!
- Tahm Kench's Grey Health (E) bar's colorblind mode display has been updated.
- Neww Summoner's Rift terrain featuring the 2015 World Championship logo has been added this patch. It's likely this will be be shown sometime during the upcoming 2015 WC matches.
