12/16 PBE Update: Wukong Skin File & Tentative Balance Changes

Posted on at 12:09 PM by Moobeat
The PBE has been updated! Today's update includes a file referencing a new Wukong skin and several tentative balance changes.
Continue reading for more information!

(Warning: PBE Content is tentative and iterative - what you see may not reflect what eventually gets pushed to live servers! Manage your expectations accordingly. )


  • A new file "MonkeyKing_Skin05_SFX_event.bnk" has been added in today's update. While not very telling to what it might be specifically, this seems to be an asset for a new Wukong skin of some sort. Currently the "4" skin spot is Underworld Wukong, so "5" would be a new one.
  • The new champion select experience testing continues on the PBE! Be sure to head on over to RiotSlumberJack's PBE boards thread to report any issues!
