Yorick Champion Update Changes

The Yorick champion update continues testing in the 6.18 cycle and today's update includes more tweaks:

Two more non English voicoevers added in today's update:

Yorick's /taunt emote has been corrected (his shovel no longer floats beside him)  EDIT: Old bugged taunt removed but unfortunately the actual new /taunt  has not been implemented yet!

Skin Tweaks

Baker Pantheon's bread shield has been brightened slightly. Delicious!

One For All changes now up for testing on PBE!

One for All is back on the PBE for more RGMQ testing and here's Riot Stephiroth with more info on changes, including introducing Kled and Yorick!
"Hey guys! 
We're back with another round of One For All! ^_^ 
For this round, we've updated the following: 
  • Kled now implemented for One For All!
    • Prepare to hear so much music and see so many running chickens!
  • Yorick implemented for One For All!
    • Maximum ghouls engage. Each Yorick can have up to a maximum of 4 ghouls, totaling to a potential 20 ghouls per team and 40 ghouls per game (in mirror match ^_^)
    • Yorick's can use each other's graves, meaning that you'll be able to reach the cap (3 nearby graves) much quicker! However right now, it does currently consume both Yorick's graves when used, meaning that sometimes other Yoricks can't summon ghouls if they have a spammy friend. If you encounter this, let us know how you feel! :)
    • All nearby Yorick Ghouls attack targets E'd by Yorick... any Yorick! 
We also have some bug fixes for this round! 
  • When a Zed dies, all shadows on the map despawn. 
As always, thanks for your help making these game modes awesome! If you find any bugs, feel free to comment here or drop a bug via the Report a Bug Tool"
