Lunar Revel 2017 LoginA new Lunar Revel 2017 login theme is now on the PBE, featuring the three upcoming skins!
Esports EmotesSeveral Esports team emotes were added in today's update. The emotes added today match with the golden TCL team summoner icons seen in a previous update and presumably they are connected. These will pop up in game when using emote shortcut, much like the Worlds 2016 emotes.
TCL: Crew Esports, Dark Passage, Fenerbahçe Esports, Galakticos eSports, GS Esports, HWA Gaming, SuperMassive, Team AURORA
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.
- Shifting Sands (E) [tooltip no longer mentions shield scaling with 15% of bonus health - while jarring, there is no actual gameplay change here as the ability has been bugged on live for a while.]
- Mana Regen increased to 1.52 from 1.518
- Mana Regen growth increased to 0.16 from 0.1
- Noxian Diplomacy (Q) healing increased to [17 + 3 per level from [15 + 2 per level]
- Phroxz0n commenting on the Azir E tooltip change today, explaining there is no gameplay change due to a bug and noting that bug has been around since at least August:
"For Azir, there's been a bug on live for a while where the bonus health scaling from Azir's E hasn't been getting added to the shield.
Instead of adding this functionality, we've decided to remove it from the ability."
