Table of Contents


Summoner Icon

A new summoner icon was added to the PBE!

SapMagic noted "It's Morgana. But it's not for the update."

He continued:
"We're currently thinking the splits will have a faction theming of some kind, and the plan is to use content based around a champion from that faction, ideally one that is associated with Ranked but doesn't have to be. 
We'll be experimenting with this, so nothing I'm saying is set in stone."

Season 9 Split 1 Icon

Miscellaneous

  • Skin bios for a few skins this cycle added:
Blood Moon Pyke
A demonic spearfisher lurking within the darkness of the Blood Moon's mirror dimension, Pyke casts his hooked blade across an endless, liquid night, dragging demons up from the bottom of the world and into their human hosts. Inexorably tied to the Blood Moon, Pyke's sudden appearance in Ionia is a dire omen indeed... 
Blood Moon Aatrox
Ancient manuscripts tracking the orbit of the Blood Moon describe it not as celestial phenomenon, but as a cosmic womb. As the seasons grow shorter and the cult's activity continues to increase, some worry it will give birth to a new kind of demon - a creature helping to bring about its own dark ascendance. 
Blood Moon Aatrox (Prestige Edition)
Aatrox has been loosed upon the mortal plane. A creature born in the heart of the Blood Moon, he is the progenitor of all demons, and a malignant darkness that will consume the entire world.
