Posted on at 12:53 AM by Moobeat

The Public Beta Environment has been updated to include the upcoming Lulu patch in its entirety! In addition to the new loading screen and music from above, we have access to all of the fabulous new skins, tentative patch notes, and a new item! Lets get on with the show...

Below are the splashes and video previews for the two launch Lulu skins as well as stunningly awesome new skins for both Kog'Maw and Graves.

We are also privy to all the Champion page videos of Lulu and her abilities! Think of it as a mini champion spotlight. You can check out the actual embedded videos over here, or just watch this preview video below to see the abilities in action.

Next up we have tenative patch notes from the PBE! While I couldn't find an official set of PBE notes, I do have an unofficial list of changes pulled from :
  • Rocket Grab now deals 80/135/190/245/300 damage, up from 60/120/180/240/300damage.

  • Empower now also increases the damage of his next Leap Strike.
  • Grandmaster's Might no longer increases Attack Power and Attack Damage. Now gives anArmor bonus equal to 25/35/45 + 30% of AD and a Magic Resist bonus equal to 25/35/45 + 20% of AP when active.
  • Deceive now increases the damage of his next attack within 6 seconds by 140/160/180/200/220%, down from 140/160/180/220/240%.

Changed Items

  • Vampiric Scepter now gives 10% Life Steal, down from 12%.
  • Wriggle's Lantern now gives 12% Life Steal, down from 15%.

As you probably noticed above, there has been a new item added to the game! The new AD caster item is named Maw of Malmortius and is intended for AD Casters ( champions focusing more on AD ratios on abilities rather than auto attacks ) or Bruisers. Building out of a Hex Drinker and a pickaxe, MoM  will give you the following stats:

+55 Attack Damage
+36 Magic Resist
Unique Passive: If you would take magic damage that would leave you at less than 30% health, you first gain a shield that absorbs 400 magic damage for 5 seconds ( 60 second cool down )
Unique Passive: +1 Attack Damage for every 2.5% your maximum health that is missing.

In addition to this, Hexdrinker has also been altered. It now costs 1400 total gold and consists of the following stats:
+25 AD
+30 MR
Unique Passive: If magic damage that would bring you <30% health, you first gain a shield that absorbs 250 magic damage for 3 seconds ( 60 second cooldown )

PHEW! That was a lot of information! Thanks to the multiple, awesome posts on reddit that helped me cover my bases.

EDIT: Here is a fun video featuring some Lulu gameplay.


  1. Wow. Thanks for the update. That new Kog skin... I want it. Now.

  2. That isn't really that bad of a patch. New item will maybe keep the carries alive a second longer and Lulu looks so fun xD

  3. Can Maw of Malmortius and Hexdrinker passive work together ?

    1. I doubt it. It would be too OP.

  4. Just played her, so fun. Feels like Xyph's work.

  5. Morello commented on that fancy-smancy new item, It's apparently not the new AD caster item he had mentioned recently.

  6. That new Maw will make me want to play Renekton some more.
