7-12 PBE: Zyra and New Skins for Cass, Dr. Mundo, and Lee Sin

Posted on at 8:18 PM by Moobeat
 ( Please remember this is all tentative information and any of it could change before hitting live servers! )

The PBE has been updated and is now available for testing! It's chocked full of goodies, including Zyra, new skins for Mundo, Cass, and Lee Sin, the Evelynn, Twitch, and Xin Zhao ability updates, a few "quality of life" improvements, and some new splash arts!
First up we have Zyra! Below are the splashes and model of our  and her accompanying launch skin, Wildfire Zyra.

Here are some quick in game caps of Zyra's abilities and  her ratios
You can also check out this video recap of her abilities:

We also have new skins for Cassiopeia, Dr. Mundo, and Lee Sin . Check out their splash arts, screen caps of their models, and teaser videos for them below. As always, remember these skins  and their particles / animations may not be final! Ricklessabandon has even mentioned that the Cass skin ( as well as her others!! ) is going to have particles that are not yet implemented.

Exalted Cassiopeia
Rageborn Mundo
Muay Thai Lee Sin

A big nod to Slushe, a friendly redditor who always digs these out of the new PBE ASAP, for the new splash arts and model shots!

One of the most exciting things about this PBE patch is ALL THE ABILITY REMAKES! This patch includes new or updated kits for the Twitch, Evelynn, and Xin Zhao.

Twitch's new kit

Evelynn's new kit
An example of how Eve's new stealth works - a faint line shows your "visible" range and yellow and red icons alert you of enemies who are about to reveal you.
Xin Zhao's new kit:
It's hard to judge from this picture, but this is the knock back distance on his new ult.

Next up, we have a few "quality of life" changes that have popped up.

The biggest change is the grim reconnect bug seems to be fixed! The bug, for those unknowing of its terror, occurs when you disconnect from a game and reconnect and makes it so minions are permanently stuck on screen, despite having been killed. It makes it really hard to last hit and play with those "fake" minions sticking around and this bug has widely been regarded as one of the longest running bugs in the history of LoL. Join in on the celebration of it's demise over on reddit!

Hand in hand with the above, there is also a new Reconnect UI for when you disconnect from a game.

Items that generate gold every 10 seconds, such as Heart of Gold or Kage's Lucky Pick, now display how much gold they have generated total!

It's not really new, but the match making AFK detection stuff is in this patch ( as it was in the last PBE update ). Just from my brief experience using it tonight, it has done wonders for speeding up the time it takes to get into a game.
The first screen pops up and after accept ( or decline ) you get second pop up showing results.
 Jayce's lore has also been updated, in client, to reflect the changes posted a few days ago.

One of the most heart tugging changes to hit League of Legends has been silently snuck into the game files. While back Riot held a sale on Jax and the Jaximus skin sold to benefit Make-a-Wish foundation. This sale was stirred by a visit from Joe, a passionate summoner who's Make-A-Wish request was to visit Riot games. His favorite champion was Jax and in memoriam of Joe, who unfortunately passed away a last month, the Jaximus skin now includes a special sound file.
He will now say "Here's to you, kid" as one of his on move quotes.

Speaking of Jax , he and Corki are also receiving updates to their default arts.

  1. all this new art is amazing... the lee sin looks super sick

    1. Yeah is Sagat *.*

    2. nonono Adon...

    3. The look is Sagat.
      The stance is Adon.
      Both notable Muay Thai users.

    4. Please include the Jayce lore change ;)
      Good organizing by the way, nice pictures etc, you know my point^^

    5. Honestly, that stance is the basic muay thai guard. It doesn't belong to anyone.

    6. It's obviously Apachai XD

  2. Zyra and Cassiopeia's new skin looks amazing. A must buy for me!

  3. They need to find out the numbers/details on Xin Zhao ASAP. I need to be a man again.

  4. That Mundo is more a reference to Grom Hellscream from WC3 in my opinion.

  5. Fire Flower Zyra... Riot pls

  6. Lee Sin's new skin looks like a Muay thai fighter...

    Sagat, Joe, or Hwa Jai.

  7. the lee sin skin is muay thai lee sin, saw it as i downloaded the files (since we can still download some of them even if the server is unavailabe)

  8. RecEIve :) 'i' before 'e' except after a 'c'! :D

  9. Adon skin is too pro


  10. Anyone know why PBE is still down? I downloaded patch.

  11. The zyra skin is named Hellvine Zyra I believe.

  12. Skins are Wildfire Zyra, Muay Thai Lee Sin, Rageborn Mundo, and Exalted Cassiopeia.

  13. Well,League of Legends Thai server is now in the closed beta stage. I think the Lee Sin skin will be release when the Thai server is officially launched(similar to "Greek Launch" Cassiopeia). Make senses because that skin is obviously based on Muay Thai. And there are coconuts tree on the background too.

  14. The new Mundoskin looks a bit like axe from Dota (2).


  16. I'm way more interested in hearing about Xin than anything else... tell meeeeee... please :)

  17. Q and E base scaling with 0,6 - R scaling with 0,7 - Plantlings scaling with 0,25. Given you can have max 2 as it seems (If you don't get additional through leveling) thats a base scaling of 2,4 with a base damage of 360ish (Q is leveld to 2 in the picture). I guess she'll require some skill to get the damage out early on but she'll be fearsome in lategame, me likes *_*

  18. Where's the Twitch details! D:

  19. Does Zyra have a recall animation? If not, that sucks for her.

  20. As someone said, I think you should include the Jace lore change, it would make alot of people happy <3

  21. Wow a fire skin, how original >.> ...
    I am trying since about 1 hour to play zyra... but you can't play a solo custom game ... so you have to join others ... what means that there are other 4 people who want zyra.... and when you made it and you are fast enough, others will leave -.- ........

  22. wtf. jax now looks like an nazgul which wants to rip my spine.

  23. Love the new Jax skin ^^ I was expecting a Medusa skin for Cass, so I'm glad they weren't so predictable. MUST NOT SPEND IP ON ZYRA. I'm waiting for the anti-Leona champion, Diane. If I don't like her, then I'll get Zyra :D

  24. Moobeat, this is why your website is the best LoL spoiler news source on the Internet. Tireless updating that is irreplicable anywhere else, thanks so much! :D

    1. I'm glad you like it! I work really hard on it.

  25. Don't forget the ghost minion reconnect bug that was finally fixed after all these years (;

  26. Also, Malzahars minions got some new AI. They now prioritize Malefic visions above 'return to master', and only return when Malz goes out of leash range. They also dance now!

    1. I saw that but I was too tired to weave it into this post! I think I'll add it in a big "what happened today " post today

  27. so jax art was changed again even though it was changed like 2 patches ago. and these "reworks" arent very diverse xin got more damage and a knockback, twitch got shorter stealth, w is now a skillshot, and an upgrade to E and R. Eve: stealth is now passive ultimate is now a skill, new ultimate, longer q, stronger e. we waited how long for just this? like almost 2 years? sigh

  28. Just a question, the katarina model in the Mundo skin teaser (only watched that one so far) looks smoother to me... is the model remake for her done?

  29. Scorched Earth Xerath and Infernal Alistar in the EU-W shop :3 Announcement here: http://euw.leagueoflegends.com/board/showthread.php?t=769083

  30. So Cass finally gets a new skin and Riot hyped it up as "Awesome" and they couldn't even give her ANY new particles? Yet here's a new Lee Sin skin with new particles and animations.

    I think Riot just tries harder on champions they like.

    1. There is a bit in the text about Cass, in general not just the skin, getting new particles.

  31. Been looking at this blog of yours for ages, Moobeat. (Cause it's just so brilliant :D ). Only now did I realize that I can actually comment as an anonymous without an account or something...
    So now I can give you my utmost thanks that I've wanted to give you for some time now. - For this brilliance you have created.(That is very very much appreciated too.)
    Thank you. :)

    1. Thanks! I actually just recently enabled being able to comment as Anonymous. I've been meaning to do a house keeping post about all the new stuff ( new facebook and .net access for site ) but I've been slacking.

    2. No worries no worries :) We're all so grateful for what you do, that I think we could tolerate a bit of tardiness here and there. :P Out of curiosity, which country/timezone do you live in? I check your blog (waaay too often) for updates, so knowing what timezone your in would really save me some pointless checking during a time in which you're probably sleeping... :P I'm in Europe.

    3. I live in the States, Southern Indiana to be precise. We are EST here but I keep very strange hours, especially when I'm out of school for the summer.

      You can always follow Twitter or follow the Surrender at 20 Facebook ( both on side bar ) I usually post to those when I update

    4. I think the Facebook Surrender would probably be more convenient for me. :P Thank you! :)
      @Anon :'(

  32. OMG SAGAT OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG!!!!!<3!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1


  34. lee sin does not need another skin.
    so many fire or red themed skins lately.

  35. man, that Zyra video is super disappointing, her passive does very little damage, her and kog's are identical, except that hers is a skill shot and way harder to hit. It also looks like it does less damage.

    Zyra in general looks pretty weak right now.

    When you plant seeds, your opponent can't see them right?
