4/1 PBE Update: Custom Item Sets Tab

Posted on at 6:08 PM by Moobeat
An update has been applied to the PBE!
Continue reading for a closer look at the numerous balance changes and the new Item Sets tab.

( Reminder: PBE content is tentative and subject to change. )

Item Sets Tab
The achievements tab has been replaced with a custom item sets tab!
As you may have guessed, these item sets are customized item builds that you are able to select once in game should you not be satisfied with the default recommended items.

When customizing your item sets, you can add a ton of new tabs to further help you in your organizing efforts.

Sound awesome right? Here is RiotBahamut sharing the good news!
"The item shop's your one-stop spot for picking up all the Infinity Edges and Rabadon's Deathcaps you need to succeed on the Fields of Justice, and now you'll be able to pick out your favorite accessories even faster with the new in-client Item Set tab. 
With this new feature, you'll set up personalized item builds before the match even starts and link them to champions of your choice in your ideal version of a recommended build. There's no limit to the number of builds you can create, adding the customization and accessibility that was your number one request back when we launched the new item shop. 
Click on your profile and find the new Item Sets tab button we've put there just for you. Once inside the tab, you'll see three columns. On the left, you'll see the familiar UI of the in-game item store that lets you browse and sort items.

The middle column should look familiar too. It takes on the look of the recommended builds that we implemented late last year. Here, you'll drag items from column one into nameable blocks that make up your customized builds. 
The third column is where it comes together. Here, the lists you make can be associated with any number of champions. So when you pick that champion, you'll see your item set in-game. You'll also be able to use a drop-down menu to get back to the Riot recommended build, if you ever need to. We decided to remove the aforementioned "third column" to experiment with simplifying the feature. Any pages you create will show up in-game, regardless of which champion you're playing. Let us know how that feels!

As always on the PBE, it's likely that the layout for item sets is going to change between now and when this feature's on live, so we're looking for your feedback. Also, if you find any bugs, make sure to let us know so we can get our splat on."
New Ping Radial
The Smart Ping radial has a new look as well!

Patcher Updates

In this patch, Riot laid the foundation for a new patching process on the PBE. Here is Bigbadabriun sharing some details.
"We've been hard at work laying down groundwork for improvements to our patcher that will make it faster and more stable. Today, we've rolled out a foundational deploy that will allow us to improve the patching process. While you shouldn't actually see any changes to your patching today, if you encounter any issues while patching to PBE, please let us know!'
