    New Skins

    To start the 5.15 PBE cycle, we have a new Cottontail Fizz skin hopping on the PBE for testing!

    Cottontail Fizz

    975 RP

    Here's Galetta with a bugs & feedback thread for Cottontail Fizz:
    "The mighty bunny stalks his prey.... 
    He may look cute and cuddly but this little bunny is playful trickster. Cottontail Fizz is just a hop, a skip, and a jump away from a penta kill! This skin includes:
    • New model and texture!
    • New recall animation! Nom nom nom!!
    • New particles on his (R). BUNNY!
    • New SFX on his (R) and recall!
    This skin will be 975RP. (pricing on PBE is subject to change) 
    Your feedback and bug reports are extremely helpful to us, so please check out Cottontail Fizz and let us know what you think! Feel free to drop any bugs you find in this thread as well!
    See you on the Rift!"

    Champion Update: Fiora

    Fiora's champion update, including new art and gameplay, is now on the PBE!

    Before we waltz in, here's Stashu with a PBE feedback thread for the Fiora champion update:
    "Hey all! Let's get a Fiora [PBE] feedback thread started! 
    Fiora, the Grand Duelist Update: Now featuring more duelist. BIG changes to her passive, W, and R, with smaller but still significant changes to Q and E. Also included: new particles, sound effects, animations, splash & icons! For full context of why we took up this project and went the direction we did, as well as full descriptions and videos for her abilities, please check out our article here
    I'd like to focus this thread on bugs and gameplay-feels, but please include all Fiora related feedback! 
    Thanks all!"

    Duelist's Dance (Passive)
    Fiora identifies Vitals on nearby enemy champions. Fiora will reveal a new Vital afte striking the last one, or after 15 seconds.
    When Fiora strikes a Vital, she deals 3 (+.028 - .045 AD )% of the target's maximum health in true damage, receives [20% base, increases to 30/40/50% based on R rank ] increased movement speed that decays over 1.75 seconds, and recovers [20 + 5.9 per level] health. 

    Lunge (Q)
    25/30/35/40/45 Mana
    18/16/14/12/10 sec Cooldown 
    Range: [400
    Fiora lunges in a direction and slashes a nearby enemy, dealing 65/75/85/95/105 (+.55/.7/.85/1.0/1.15 bonus AD) physical damage and applying on-hit effects. This attack prioritizes Vitals and targets in kill range. 
    If this ability hits an enemy, 60/60/60/60/60% of its cooldown is refunded.

    Riposte (W)
    50/50/50/50/50 Mana
    21/19.5/18/16.5/15 sec Cooldown 
    [Range: 750
    Fiora parries all incoming damage and disables for the next 0.75 seconds and then slashes in the target direction 
    The slash deals 90/130/170/210/250 (+.6 AP) magic damage to the first enemy champion and slows  their movement and attack speed by 50% for 1.5 seconds. 
    If Fiora parries an immobilizing disable, Riposte stuns instead of slowing.

    Bladework (E)
    40/45/50/55/60 Mana
    15/13/11/9/7 sec Cooldown 
    Fiora gains 50% increased attack speed for the next two attacks. The first attack cannot critically strike, but applies a 1 second 25/35/45/55/65% slow. The second attack is guaranteed to critically strike for 140/155/170/185/200% damage

    Grand Challenge (R)
    100 Mana
    110/90/70 sec Cooldown 
    Range: [500
    Fiora reveals all four Vitals on the target champion, for a potential [4x damage of passive] % max health true damage.  In addition, Fiora gains Duelist Dances's movement speed bonus (30/40/50%) while near the target. 
    If Fiora hits all 4 Vitals in 8 seconds or if the target dies after she has hit at least one, Fiora and her allies in the area are healed for 80/110/140 (+.6 AD) each second for 5 seconds.

    Here's a video preview of her updated abilities [Outdated as of the 7/23 Update] :



    Lore

    Fiora's short form lore was also changed:
    "''I have come to kill you for the sake of honor. And though you possess none, you will die just the same.'' 
    The most feared duelist in all of Valoran, Fiora is as renowned for her indomitable will and haughty pride as she is for her skill with the blade. She was born to Demacia's House Laurent, a once-proud family whose reputation was tarnished by the actions of her father. In an unprecedented move, Fiora challenged him to single combat and, upon winning, took control of House Laurent. Defying the Demacian establishment, she has set about restoring the reputation and pride of her family name, one duel at a time."

    Updated Skins

    All three of Fiora's skins have also been updated.

    Royal Guard Fiora


    [Outdated as of the 7/23 Update]


    Nightraven Fiora

    [Outdated as of the 7/23 Update]

    Headmistress Fiora

    [Outdated as of the 7/23 Update]


    New Chroma Packs

    We have two new chroma packs in this cycle - one for Dragonslayer Vayne & one for Koi Nami. The files also reference a new base Cassiopeia Chroma pack but it has no assets on the PBE yet!

    Dragonslayer Vayne Chaos


    Koi Nami Element

    Here's Riot LoveStrut with a bugs & feedback thread for these two new sets of chroma!
    Bot lane is leading this wave of chromas as the Koi Nami Element and Dragonslayer Vayne Chaos chroma packs make a splash onto the PBE! 
    This tidal wave of colors are arriving at 590 RP per chroma pack. 
    Let us know what you think of this champ and skin selection and who you think we should deck out in colors next! Got questions? Check out the Chroma Pack FAQ here
    PS: The Champion Select color swatches for these chromas are not in yet, but for reference, the order of swatches from left to right are: 
    • Koi Nami Element Sunbeam -> Smoke -> Twilight
    • Dragonslayer Vayne Chaos Silver -> Red -> Green

    There is another chroma pack for Cassiopeia Curse but unfortunately, looks like no assets. Just the name so far. *hiss*!

    Ward Skin Selection in Champion Select

    A new ward skin selection option has been added to champion select, to the right of summoner spells.
    When you click the icon, a window pops up showing you a list all of the ward skins you have unlocked as well as a larger preview to picture. Select one by clicking and hit the X to close the screen.

    Here's a brief preview video of the ward skin selection screen in action:

    Here's DontHassleDaHoff with more on ward  skin selection in champion select :
    "Hey everyone! 
    Have you ever hit champion select and thought to yourself: “Oh man, I forgot to pick my Astronaut Poro ward! How will anyone know I support the poro space program?” Well, say goodbye to those dark days because we’re bringing ward selection into champ select. Give it a try, and let us know what you think! And hey, who knows? Maybe your friends will finally start warding now. Hopefully. Maybe. Probably not… 
    We’re also aware that the ward selection module is showing up in the post-game lobby if you didn’t close it out in champ select, so we're working on fixing that. 
    Thanks for helping us test!"

    HUD Changes

    Critical Strike and Attack Range have swapped places on the HUD's character stats.

    The HUD Font has been adjusted.
     [Note: Picture taken at 100% HUD Size for example - comparison new vs old here.]

    * In the second update, we have a few more changes! The "on cooldown" box now fills the full square.
    Here's a comparison of live (top) vs PBE (bottom)

    For those interested, Riot Rayven has noted several other upcoming tweaks to the HUD here.

    Bilgewater Music Option

    Here's Riot Stephiroth with more info on this temporary option to swap between Bilgewater music and the updated SRU music:
    "Heyo Summoners! 
    We heard your feedback, and have temporarily added the ability to toggle between the Bilgewater Music and SRU music. 
    You can find this option under the in-game Sound menu, near the bottom.
    Your audio will default to Updated SRU music, so if you want Bilgewater music, you will need to toggle it. 
    We are looking into the amount of effort to get this fix live during the Bilgewater Event, so that players who want to opt-out of the Bilgewater music can. :) 
    Soon after the event is over, we will rotate the Classic music option back in.
    Thanks! If you have any feedback, or bug reports, feel free to shoot 'em my way!"

    • A ton of air client assets related to the ward skins added, unsure what they are for.
