"Hey buff herders! 
We're still holding off on going too crazy with balance changes until after 9.19 (the patch that Worlds will be played on), but we do have some bigger adjustments to Aurelion Sol and Kayle this patch. Mainly, we're helping them in the respective spaces they're weak in and that make them difficult to be seen as viable or reliable picks. Overall, Aurelion Sol should now be more comprehensible with more satisfying signs of successful play and Kayle should have more of a laning phase without feeling like a complete wet noodle. 
That's all folks!

Points of Interest from the 9.17 PBE Cycle

Here's a brief look at many of the new things included in patch 9.17. This coverage includes preview screen shots and video taken during the 9.17 PBE cycle and may vary slightly from what is pushed to live.

Champion Skins

Six new skins will be available sometime this cycle:

Elderwood Ahri

1350 RP
"Fables of the trickster spirit Ahri have been part of mankind's history for countless generations. Fair-skinned and eternally youthful, she is portrayed as a curious, quizzical member of the Elderwood's feyfolk... though in recent years her heart has hardened, as she fights a growing corruption within her ancestral home."


Elderwood Nocturne

1350 RP
"The great corpses of the Old Gods fed the land, and in time even the Elderwood would come to grow over their putrid rot-- hiding it, perhaps, for a time. But the Gods never truly died and, with the resurgence of the Coven, one has risen again-- Nocturne, the Eternal Nightmare."

Elderwood Veigar

1350 RP
"A small number of the Elderwood's children remain largely unaffected by the growing influence of the Coven, to the relief of scholars and storytellers alike. Unfortunately, those particular children are some of the most whimsical and dangerous, including among their number the insane goblin Veigar and his cursed, hallucinogenic toadstools."

Infernal Galio

1350 RP
"A black-hearted monstrosity leading the hellish Infernal hordes, Galio is titanic even by the standards of his fiery kin. His steps melt the very bedrock beneath him, swallowing entire armies without so much as a second thought."

Infernal Shen

1350 RP
"An Infernal warrior risen from the raging depths of the underworld, Shen appears on battlefields in the blink of an eye, shielding his fellow titans from even the most well-organized resistance."

Infernal Varus

1350 RP
"The Infernal Varus rips massive gouts of magma from the foundation of the earth, before firing them in volleys at those who would fight back against him. Each arrow lands with the ferocity of an exploding volcano, reducing all resistance to ash."

Chromas

Tons of chromas will also be available sometime this cycle:

Elderwood Ahri 
[8 Chromas]
       

Elderwood Veigar
[9 Chromas, 1 images missing!]
        

Elderwood Nocturne
[8 Chromas]
       

Infernal Galio
[5 Chromas]
    


Infernal Shen

Miscellaneous 

  • Skin bios added: 
    • Skin Line
      • Full Metal
    • Full Metal Pantheon: "A former Full Metal Robot Fighting League champion (2x reign, 14 title defenses), Pantheon was forced to retire in disgrace after a scandal involving Targon Fabrications. Reemerging from retirement to face the chosen champion, Jayce, Pantheon may be damaged, but has found that revenge adequately charges his weapon systems."
    • Full Metal Jayce: "Backed by RiotCorp as the Full Metal Fighting League's first corporately sanctioned champion, Jayce has dethroned Pantheon and won the hearts of audiences worldwide-- especially those who realize they gain 15 Riot Points every time they cheer his cyclonic blasts."
    • Full Machine Viktor: "Created from the same circuitry as the Full Metal champion, Jayce, Viktor was cast into the tunnels beneath the robot fighting arenas to serve as a janitoribot-- while his twin was groomed for glory, simulcast en espaƱol. Upgrading himself with the cast-offs of the destroyed, he has sworn la venganza."
    • Full Metal Rammus: "Those who make it to the Full Metal Robot Fighting League-- the premier institution for gear-crunching, robot-on-robot violence-- must often face off against the fearsome Full Metal Rammus. It is an initial rite of passage, faced by every contender-bot, that leaves entire arenas in tremors..."
  • Kayle and Morgana's shared splash art was updated, removing Kayle's glowing eyes from her helmet:
