  • Wall Enchantment: 51/63/75/87/99 (+60% bAD) bonus damage to units below 50% health.
  • Brush Enchantment: Leaves a canopy trail that stealths you and grants 20% movement speed. Canopy fades after attacking from it, exiting it, or after 3.5s. 
Edge Of Ixtal: If you do not have an enchantment, slash in the target direction, dealing 85/105/125/145/165 (+100% bAD) physical damage to enemies in a small area 
Both abilities deal 75% damage to targets beyond the first."
  • Terrashape (W)
    • Tooltip updated for clarity:
"Active: Target River, Wall, or Brush. Conjur elemental power from the environment and dash towards it to enchant your weapon with it and reset Elemental Wrath's cooldown. 
Passive: While your weapon is enchanted, you gain 20% Attack Speed and your attacks and basic abilities deal 8/16/24/32/40 (+30% AP)(+20% bAD) bonus magic damage. Additionally, you gain 5/6.25/7.5/8.75/10% movement speed while out of combat and near the corresponding terrain type."

  • Supreme Display of Talent (R)
    • Tooltip updated for clarity:
"Launch a shockwave that knocks back enemies and stops when it hits a Wall. The entire Wall then explodes to stun nearby enemies for up to 1s [Min: 0.5s] and deal them physical damage equal to 100/170/240 (+170% bAD) + 10% of their max health. 
Any River or Brush the shockwave passes through also explode after a delay for the same damage and stun."

Context & Notes

1) Riot Xenogenic noted how Arcade Caitlyn Prestige Edition would be acquired:
"Been getting questions regarding Prestige Arcade Caitlyn's prices, acquisition method, etc, so here's some info: 
-Prestige Arcade Caitlyn will be a part of that event's event pass 
-She will cost 2000 tokens (missions will reward the same amount as Trials did)"
2) Riot Mort noted an ARAM change for next cycle for Corki:
"Thanks to @SmashGizmo, we've got a single change going into ARAM next patch that is a long time coming: 
Corki: 
  • The Package First Spawn Time:: 8:00 >>> 5:00 
  • The Package Cooldown:: 240 seconds >>> 150 seconds"
3) SmashGizmo also noted changes for how Corki's ammo bar would work:
