New Ward Skins

The three new 2016 season ranked reward ward skins are included in this PBE cycle but do not seem to be enabled for testing yet. More pictures & video previews soon!

Assassin Class Update

The large Assassin class update is now on the PBE for testing - including large scope champion updates, smaller scope champion updates, itemization changes, and more!

Check out the 2017 season changes page on assassins for an overview or continue reading for detailed changelists, stat changes, and previews.

Before we get started, here's Riot MEMEMEMEME with a general Assassins bug reporting thread:
"Hey All, 
While you are out and about getting pentakills with the Assassins you may notice a bug or two (Not Kha' Zix he is Working as Intended), if that does happen please let us know here. Any oddities reported help us track down problems with these updates and ultimately ship them in a much cleaner state. We are aware of some issues with fixes currently underway, but don't let this deter you from throwing reports at us! 
The current Assassins Roster is as follows:
Leblanc, Katarina, Rengar, Talon
With the Mini Updates being:
Fizz, Zed, Kha'Zix, Akali, Shaco, Ekko
Thanks y'all for the help! 
You da best (>")>"
Riot MEMEMEMEME is also manning the Assassins Artistic Feedback thread:
"Hey All, 
For this Class Update we tried something different and updated the VFX/Audio for almost all abilities, even the ones we did not touch. Internally we have been incredibly excited to see what y'all think as there was a ton of love put into these abilities. The Champion Update artists would greatly appreciate your feedback on these changes. What do you think about the SSW logo flashing on Talons blades? Does the LeBlanc clone taunt line make you feel more deceptive? Is Project Katarina still projecty? 
These changes were only made to Katarina, Talon, Rengar, and LeBlanc. 

[Larger Scope Champion Updates]

First up for the assassin class update we have the larger scope champion updates - these include several new abilities or mechanics, updated icons for most, vfx & sfx changes, number & stat changes, and more! Since these updates have so many ability changes, you'll find the new abilities listed out in detail rather than comparisons to the old kit. 


New Ability Icons for W and E:

Stat Changes:
  • Movespeed lowered to 340 from 345
  • Base health increased to 590 from 510
  • Health growth lowered to 82 from 83
  • Base armor increased to 27.88 from 26.88
  • Base Health Regen increased to 1.5 from 0.9

  • Base MR increased to 34.1 from 32.1

Ability Changes:

Voracity (Passive): [No changes]

Bouncing Blade (Q):
No Cost
11/10/9/8/7 sec Cooldown
Katarina throws a Dagger, dealing 75/105/135/165/195 (+30% AP) magic damage to the target and 2 nearby enemies. The dagger then ricochets onto the ground. 
If Katarina picks up a Dagger, she uses it to slash through all nearby enemies, dealing  [75 - 311 based on level] (+125% bonus AD)(+55-100% AP) magic damage. 
The dagger always lands on the opposite side from where it struck the first target, getting there in the same amount of time regardless of how many times it bounces.
  •  Dagger pick up slash damage should be: 75/80/86/93/101/110/121/132/145/159/174/190/207/226/245/266/288/311
    • Formula -   ((KatLevel / 1.75) + 3) * KatLevel + 71.5
  • AP scaling on dagger pick up slash is 55/70/85/100% at 1/6/11/16
  •  Daggers last on ground about four seconds.

Preparation (W):
No Cost
15/14/13/12/11 sec Cooldown 
Katarina tosses a Dagger into the air and gains 50/60/70/80/90% decaying movement speed over 1.25 seconds. 
If Katarina picks up a Dagger, she uses it to slash through all nearby enemies, dealing [75-311 based on level] (+125% bonus AD)(+55-100% AP) magic damage.

Shunpo (E) : 
No Cost
10/9.5/9/8.5/8 sec Cooldown
Katarina dashes in the blink of an eye to the target ally, enemy, or Dagger. If it is an enemy, Katarina strikes for 25/40/55/70/85 (+75% total AD)(+25% AP) magic damage - otherwise she strikes the nearest enemy in range. 
Picking up a Dagger will reduce Shunpo's cooldown by 78%/84%/90%/96% (at levels 1/6/11/16). 
Katarina can blink to any location near the target.
  • E now leaves a red streak when used -src

Death Lotus (R):
No Cost
90/60/45 Sec Cooldown 
Katarina becomes a flurry of blades, rapidly throwing knives at the three nearest enemy champions, dealing 25/37.5/50 (+22% bonus AD)(+22% AP) magic damage per knife, up to [15 x dagger damage] damage over 2.5 seconds to each enemy. 
Applies Grievous Wounds to all enemies struck, reducing their healing and regeneration by 40%.
  •  Total potential damage now  375/562.5/750 (+330% Bonus AD) (+ 330% AP)

Here's Riot Whale with a feedback thread for Katarina's assassin class update:
"Hi all, this is the thread for Katarina! 
  • Tactical Play and Counterplay: Katarina and her opponents should have the ability to make moment to moment plays against each other. While this has largely been true for Katarina, we now hope that opponents have more to do than pray someone saved an instant CC for her.
  • Laning and Interaction: We want Katarina to play more dynamically in lane, taking risks and jumping in and out of combat with her opponent.
  • Mastery and Skill Expression: While playing Kat, you should feel that there are dynamic and unique ways to use your skills and feel skillful when you pull off that crazy combo. 
Reworked Play Pattern 
  • The Dagger Katarina throws in her Q now stays on the ground after bouncing.
  • Sinister Steel has been replaced by a spell that directly allows her to place a Dagger where she is (after a delay), so she can jump back to it later.
  • She can Shunpo to her Daggers. Walking over a dagger/Shunpoing to one will effectively fully refund Shunpo's cooldown and deal massive AoE damage around her (Pre-Rework Sinister Steel, but amped up WAY past 11 - like, nearly lethal amounts of damage).
    • She goes crazy and bounces all over the place killing everyone (but only if she sets herself up correctly). 
Some Extra Tidbits 
  • She can now Shunpo to anywhere around a unit, instead of always behind it. This is controlled by the player's mouse offset relative to the target. Really looking for feedback on this, but expect it to take a while to learn!
    • Use this to your advantage to position better around enemies, or daggers! The AoE damage from the dagger is based on where you are when you pick it up, not the dagger.
  • Your Q Dagger always drops 350u behind the primary target, and always takes the same amount of time to bounce to get to the ground after the first hit, so you aren't punished for bouncing through multiple people. Try to trick shot Q daggers from one enemy onto a more important target using this offset. 
Please put any questions or feedback on Katarina in this thread!"



New ability icons: 

Stat Changes:
  • Health growth increased to 80 from 75

Ability Changes:

Sigil of Malice (Passive):
LeBlanc's spells inflict Sigil of Malice for 4 seconds. After 1.5 seconds, LeBlanc's next spell shatters the Sigil to deal [40+15 per level] (+80% AP) extra magic damage to that target. 
Sigil of Malice cannot occur again on the same unit for 5 seconds.
  • Dmg = 40/55/70/85/100/115/130/145/160/175/190/205/220/235/250/265/280/295 

Shatter Orb (Q):
40/45/50/55/60 Mana
6 sec Cooldown 
Deals 55/80/105/130/155 (+50% AP) magic damage. When Shatter Orb is empowered by Sigil of Malice, the spell bounces to the nearest ready Sigil of Malice (bounces deal 70% damage to minions). 

Distortion (W):
70/80/90/100/110 Mana
18/16/14/12/10 sec Cooldown  
Dashes to target location, dealing 70/100/130/160/190 (+40% AP) magic damage to enemies in the target area. 
For the next 4 seconds, she can activate Distortion again to return to her starting location.

Ethereal Chains (E):
40 Mana
14/12.5/11/9.5/8 sec Cooldown  
Launches a chain that shackles the first unit hit to LeBlanc, dealing 40/65/90/115/140 (+50% AP ) magic damage. 
If the target remains shackled for 1.5 seconds they are rooted for 1.5 seconds and take an additional  40/65/90/115/140 (+50% AP ) magic damage.

Mimic (R):
54/42/30 sec Cooldown  
LeBlanc copies one of her spells and creates a Mimic decoy to cast it with her. The Mimic lasts 1 second.  
  • Shatter Orb deals 150/275/400 (+60% AP) magic damage.
  • Distortion deals 125/225/325 (+50% AP) magic damage.
  • Ethereal Chains deals 100/160/220 (+40% AP) magic damage each time.
  • Using this spell on itself invokes Shadow of the Rose. 
Shadow of the Rose
The Mimic appears at target location and approaches the closest visible enemy Champion, then casts a fake version of LeBlanc's most recent basic ability.  
Has a separate 150 second cooldown. This Mimic lasts much longer but cannot be controlled.
Here's a brief preview video of LeBlanc's update (and skins) in-game:

Here's 20thCenturyFaux with a feedback thread for LeBlanc:
"Hello all, this is the LeBlanc feedback thread announcement sentence! This thread doesn't have exact numbers or ability text, look for that appearing on the website soon. 
Rework goals:
  • Make LeBlanc healthier by giving her opponents have time to respond when she goes in. By adding a little time between when LeBlanc goes in and when the full burst hits, the choice of whether to snap back to W's origin means LB has to give up damage.
  • Give LeBlanc unique strategic tools and capabilities so she brings something to her games that other assassins don't.
  • In doing the first two things, emphasize her thematic identity as the Deceiver -- emphasize her tricky side. 
The Changes
  • LeBlanc's Sigil of Malice is now her passive. The mark is applied by all her spells, cooks for 1.5 seconds, and can be popped by any spell for massive damage. If LeBlanc's Q pops a charged Sigil of Malice, it chains to nearby ready Sigils (taking some of the waveclear duty off her W/RW).
  • Mirror Image is now a part of LeBlanc's ultimate -- when she copies a spell, she splits and both her and the clone cast the spell.
  • Mimic can now copy any spell, not just the most recently cast; she presses R secretly, and the next button press is the Mimic version of that spell.
  • Mimic's R -> R is a new ability: LeBlanc creates a clone anywhere on the map. That clone runs toward the nearest enemy champion and casts a fake version of the most recent spell LeBlanc cast before creating the RR Mimic. This has a separate cooldown from the ult itself. 
Smaller changes 
  • W and RW now have a brief (0.3s~) delay after dash completes before LeBlanc can snap back. For most players, farming the wave is the only time they'll feel this; casting any spells after the dash 'covers up' the delay time entirely. This is mainly something for extremely high level LeBlanc play.
  • E now displays the tether range to LeBlanc and her victim. It hasn't changed in size, but it's really really big xD
  • RR has a gem on the corner of the R button to track its cooldown timer.
  • This is the real LeBlanc feedback thread announcement sentence the first one was a clone the whole time 
Questions, comments, bugs and discussion all welcome. Good hunting!"


Stat Changes:
  • Armor growth lowered to 3 from 3.5
  • Ferocity decreased to 4 from 5

Ability Changes:

Unseen Predator (Passive):
While in brush, Rengar leaps (725 range) at his target with his basic attack. Leaping to enter combat generates 1 Ferocity. 
At 4 Ferocity, his next ability is empowered. Casting an empowered ability increases Rengar's Movement Speed by 30/40/50 % for 1.5 seconds.  
Killing enemy champions awards trophies on Rengar's Bonetooth Necklace. 
All Ferocity is lost upon exiting combat (represented by Unseen Predator's cooldown).
  • Bonetooth Necklace grants flat AD and % increase to Rengar's bonus AD based on unique champs killed.
    • Tracked with a UI element similar to Kindred's target tracker.
    • Kha'Zix vs Rengar quesst gives a secret 6th stack for +21 AD and  42% Bonus AD

Savagery (Q):
Generates 1 Ferocity
6/5.5/5/4.5/4 sec Cooldown
Slash all enemies in an arc before piercing all enemies in a line for 45/65/85/105/125 (+40/50/60/70/80% Bonus AD) physical damage per strike. 
Ferocity effect:
Each hit deals 50/60/70/80/90/100/110/120/130/140/150/160/170/180/190/200/210/220 (+120% Bonus AD) damage. 
If cast outside max range, Rengar lunges forward to extend the range of the piercing attack.
  • This is two hits total - highest possible base damage is 90-250 +  [80%-160% bonus AD] 

Battle Roar (W):
Generates 1 Ferocity
20/18/16/14/12 sec Cooldown
Deals 50/80/110/140/170 (+80% AP) magic damage to nearby enemies and heals Rengar for 50% of the damage he took in the last 1.5 seconds. 
Ferocity effect:
Deals  50/60/70/80/90/100/110/120/130/140/150/160/170/180/190/200/210/220 (+80% AP) magic damage, removes existing crowd control effects, and prevents incoming ones for 1.5 seconds, in addition to its normal effect. 
Damage healed from monster attacks is increased by 100%.

Bola Strike (E):
Generates 1 Ferocity
10 sec Cooldown 
Throw a bola, dealing  50/100/150/200/250 (+70% Bonus AD) physical damage and slowing the first enemy hit by 30/45/60/75/90% for 1.75 seconds. 
Ferocity effect:
Deals 50/65/80/95/110/125/140/155/170/185/200/215/230/245/260/275/290/305 (+70% Bonus AD) physical damage and roots the target for 1.75 seconds.

Thrill of the Hunt (R):
No Cost
130/100/70 sec Cooldown 
Rengar's predatory instincts take over, causing him to Camouflage for 14/22/30 seconds. 
While active, Rengar gains 40% Movement Speed and vision of the nearest enemy champion (within 2000/3000/4000 range), who he can leap to for a guaranteed critical strike.  Attacking or casting most spells ends Thrill of the Hunt. 
Stealth - Camouflaged: This character is hidden from view. It is revealed by nearby enemy champions and turrets.

Here's a brief preview video of Rengar's updated kit in action:

Here's Riot Repertoir with a feedback thread for Rengar:
"Hey all, 
Rengar's update has meaningful changes to P, Q, W, and R, while E is mostly unchanged. This set of changes hopes to add some tools to Rengar's hunting pattern, play up the excitement of his Ferocity resource usage, and enhance the feeling of being the ultimate predator, while at the same time providing more tactical counterplay for opponents. Let's get into it, but before doing so, please remember that all numbers are still tentative. 
  • P - Unseen Predator
    • Ferocity
      • Maximum Ferocity reduced 5 >>> 4
      • Using an empowered ability gives Rengar 30/40/50% (at levels 1/7/13) Movement Speed for 1.5 seconds
      • Rengar no longer has to damage an enemy with a spell to gain Ferocity from it
      • All Ferocity is lost instantly upon leaving combat (4 seconds of dealing/taking no damage)
    • Leap
      • Range increased 600 >>> 725
      • Leaping from out of combat (see Ferocity out of combat rules above) generates 1 Ferocity
      • Rengar now jumps slightly offset from the target in the direction he came from (rather than dead-center in the middle of the target's model)
    • Bonetooth Necklace
      • Now only grants stacks for unique champion kills (Rengar has to damage them within 1 second of their death)
      • Stacks capped at 5
      • Old bonuses removed
      • Now grants 1/3/6/10/15 Attack Damage
      • Now grants 2/6/12/20/30% Bonus Attack Damage
      • No longer gets the short end of the stick in the Kha'Zix/Rengar quest
      • Bonetooth Necklace progress is represented by a UI element that Kindred players will be familiar with
  • Q - Savagery - redesigned
    • Rengar slashes all enemies in an arc before piercing all enemies in a line
      • This spell is now a skillshot; it still resets Rengar's auto attack timer
    • Casting Savagery outside the max range causes Rengar to lunge forward with the piercing attack, moving a small distance in that direction
    • Deals 90/130/170/210/250 plus (edit) 0.8/1.0/1.2/1.4/1.6 Bonus AD physical damage
    • Ferocity effect: deals significantly more damage
    • Deals 80+20/lvl plus 2.4 Bonus AD physical damage
  • W - Battle Roar - redesigned
    • Rengar deals magic damage to nearby enemies and heals for 50% of the damage he took in the last 1.5 seconds
    • Ferocity effect: additionally removes crowd control effects and prevents incoming ones for 1.5 seconds
    • The amount Rengar will heal is represented by Grey Health on his health bar
    • Damage healed from monster attacks is doubled
  • E - Bola Strike - basically the same, with some numbers adjustments
  • R - Thrill of the Hunt
    • Now Camouflages Rengar, meaning he can be seen by nearby champions or truesight only
    • Duration increased to 14/22/30 seconds
    • Fade time removed
    • Movement Speed increased to 40%
    • Now only reveals the enemy champion nearest Rengar
      • This puts eyes over the target that both teams can see
    • Rengar can only leap to the enemy champion nearest him (unless in brush)
    • Leaping to the enemy champion nearest him results in a guaranteed critical strike on the target
    • Edit: no longer grants Movement Speed or Ferocity generation after ending 
Those are the noteworthy changes, I believe. To summarize: 
  • Passive has a bunch of changes
  • Q is a double attack skillshot
  • W heals recent damage and has CC break/immunity on the empowered version
  • E is mostly unchanged
  • R gives more signalling to opponents, but lasts longer, makes Rengar faster, and lets him auto-crit the Hunted target if he leaps to it. 
I'll pop in and out of here in the next few weeks to see how things are going. 

Also note that the Rengar vs Kha'Zix quest will award Rengar a hidden 6th stack.

Talon tosses a volley of blades, dealing  50/65/80/95/110 (+40% bonus AD) physical damage to units hit and returning to him after a delay. 
On their way back to Talon, the blades deal 60/85/110/135/160 (+60% bonus AD) additional damage and slow the enemy by 40/45/50/55/60% for 1 second.

Assassin's Path (E):
No Cost
2 sec Cooldown 
Talon vaults over the nearest structure or terrain in the target direction. The vault's speed is affected by Talon's movement speed. 
Talon cannot dash over the same section of terrain more than once every 150/125/100/75/50 seconds.

Shadow Assault (R):
100 Mana
100/80/60 sec Cooldown 
Talon disperses a ring of blades that deal 90/135/180 (+80% Bonus AD) physical damage to all units they hit, gains 40/55/70% increased movement speed, and becomes Invisible for up to 2.5 seconds. When the Invisibility ends, the blades converge, dealing the same damage again to enemies they pass through. 
If Talon cancels Invisibility with an attack or Noxian Diplomacy, the blades converge on his target's location instead. 
Stealth - Invisible: Talon can only be revealed by nearby enemy Turrets.

Here's Riot Stashu with a feedback thread for Talon:
"Note: Ability descriptions not listed here. I'll include the link here when our Assassins webpage goes up later today! 
Welcome to Talon's feedback thread! 
Below you'll find the goals of the update, an overview of his updated play pattern and how it might accomplish these goals, and then a list of questions I'd really like to get everyone's thoughts on: 
  • Add skill expression in his kill pattern (consequently, improve game health)
  • Give him unique, Assassin appropriate abilities to differentiate him
  • Lean into his identity as the roaming AD assassin 
Play Pattern 
  • In lane, Talon will look to land both ends of his updated Rake (W) to stack up his new Passive. With it's higher payout but increased delay, Rake is the main thing for opponents to watch out for.
    • If successful with his W, he can posture for an all in with his updated Noxian Diplomacy (Q) to proc his passive and go for the kill.
  • Whether or not lane trades are working out, Talon will be looking for opportunities to dip out of lane and take advantage of his new Assassin's Path (E).
    • If he can clear the wave and make room to roam, Talon can make record time in his ability to jump, flip, and roll over any obstacles in his way to ambush the enemy jungler or gank a side lane.
  • In team fights, Talon will look to take advantage of the unique and unexpected flanking routes that only he could.
    • If successful in flanking with Assassin's Path, Talon should be able to make quick work on an enemy squishy with a Q/W/R/P combo. 
  • Anything at all about the new E. Is it fun? Difficult to use? Does it suit Talon? Bugs?
  • With his new but different set of mobility tools, do you feel able to get on your desired target?
  • With higher potential damage but lower up front damage, do you still feel empowered to kill your target enemies?
  • When in the game do you feel powerful / weak (early / mid / late) and in which circumstances (enemy has all/no squishies, I was able to roam / I was pushed in, etc.)? 
Lastly, known bugs: 
  • Rake's spell effects are not displaying correctly to enemies. We'll have a fix for this out in the next PBE build.
  • Talon crashes the server when using E in a number of places on the Crystal Scar. This fix will take a while, so we'll be disabling him on those maps ASAP while we work on that one. 
And that's all for now! Please put any and all reactions/questions/comments here -- Talon's new mechanics are pretty unique, so every bit of feedback helps!"

In addition to the champion updates, there are also several new items, Lethality, stealth changes, and more to go along with the assassin class update!

Balance Changes

Remember *: The PBE is a testing grounds for new, tentative, and sometimes radical or experimental changes. Be aware that what you see below may be lacking context or other changes that didn't make it in or were implemented in an earlier patch this cycle! These are not official notes.

    • From context thread - "Lethality now gives the owner flat pen split between a base amount, and an amount that scales with the target's level.

      The current formula is 0.4X + [((0.6X * Y)/18) = Flat Penetration Amount], where X is Lethality and Y is target champion level. This is very much subject to change as we start getting a lot more balance information."
      • Lethality Items - Serrated Dirk, Poacher's Dirk, Sorcerer's Bane, Duskblade of Draktharr, Youmuu's Ghostblade, Maw of Malmortius
