Miscellaneous 

  • Chroma store assets added:
Dark Star Karma
       

Dark Star Shaco
     

Dragonslayer Braum
   
  • Skin bios added for skins this cycle:
    • Dark Cosmic Jhin
      • Jhin was an interstellar entity, consumed by the Dark Star and given new purpose. Now, his ageless mind is infected by visions of omnipotence, and consumed by an insatiable hunger. He scours entire regions of space seemingly on a whim, using the remnants to create bizarre, silent objets d'art.
    • Dark Star Shaco
      • Shaco was once a region of space known for raucous celebration, wiped clean by the Dark Star and reborn into the mocking visage of a jester. His twisted cackling reaches inhabited systems long before he does, provoking visions of destruction, and societal breakdowns that will soon feed his endless hunger.
    • Lord Mordekaiser
      • Some of Mordekaiser's party complain that the Dark Paladin class is horribly overpowered and should be banned, despite its official inclusion in the latest Riftquest expansion. The rest of them are still waiting to discover the Dark Paladin's secret, redeeming, tragic backstory... but all they've been getting is a lot of murder instead.

Context & Notes

1) Riot Repertoir provided an updated changelist for Ryze in today's PBE Update:
"Here's the next version of 9.12 Ryze that will go to PBE. Pretty different than the last, as was noted Friday."

2) Riot Sotere provided a look at a tentative changelist for Sylas:
Per playtest feedback, likely have to add an additional nerf. Thinking about E CD with spell rank-ups increasing a bit.
