Continued Yorick Champion Update Testing

Yorick's incomplete /joke is now up and running on the PBE - for his updated /joke, Yorick stomps on a mist walker trying to bite at him then bonks it with a shovel. 
Here's a brief video preview:

Lore Changes

Elise and Maokai have had their in-game lore entries updated in the client! Please remember these are only the short form in client entries and typically longer form bio & stories follow!


''Beauty is power too, and can strike swifter than any sword.'' 
Elise is a deadly predator who dwells in a shuttered, lightless palace, deep in the Immortal Bastion of Noxus. Once she was mortal, the mistress of a once-powerful house, but the bite of a vile spider god transformed her into something beautiful, undying, and utterly inhuman. To maintain her eternal youth, Elise preys upon the innocent, and there are few who can resist her seductions.


''All around me are empty husks, soulless and unafraid... but I will bring them fear.'' 
Maokai is a rageful, towering treant who fights the unnatural horrors of the Shadow Isles. He was twisted into a force of vengeance after a magical cataclysm destroyed his home, surviving undeath only through the waters of life infused within his heartwood. Once a peaceful nature spirit, Maokai now furiously battles to banish the scourge of unlife from the Shadow Isles and restore his home to its former beauty

Balance Changes

 [Below are 8/30 changes listed in the Yorick update feedback thread from Solcrushed]
  • "Experimenting with W Health bars. Feedback is greatly appreciated. We're trying out a health bar at the bottom to lower the probability that it will be obscured by the enemy's health bar. How weird is this and do you feel it's something you can get used to?"
