Continue reading for more information, including a better look at Garen and a handful of tentative balance changes.

(Warning: PBE Content is tentative and iterative - what you see may not reflect what eventually gets pushed to live servers! Manage your expectations accordingly. )

Garen Visual Upgrade
As announced earlier today, Garen has received a visual upgrade! While his voiceover/sounds and any updated splashes are not yet present, all of his in-game models have been updated.

Here's Ququroon with the announcement on his PBE availability!
"Get ready to Spin to Win, everyone! It's the Might of Demacia, Garen! 
Please feel free to leave feedback in this thread regarding Garen or any related bugs you encounter. Your feedback here will influence the changes we make, as well as aiding us in our future champion Visual Upgrades. 
Hailing from Demacia, this hurricane of blades is decked out in new garb appropriate to his homeland. Expect to see a brand new model, new animations, new VFX, and new VO in this Visual Upgrade! From scarf to blade, this boy in blue (and all his skins!) is ready for action. 
Please post all bugs and feedback here! Now get out there, and fear not!"
Now that that's out of the way... on to the show!

Balance Changes
* Remember *: The PBE is a testing grounds for new and sometimes radical changes. The changes you see below may be lacking context or other accompanying changes that didn't make it in - don't freak out.
