End of S3 Reward Ward skin

This Victorious Ward skin will be rewarded to summoner's who place in Silver or above before the end of Season 3. See this post for more info on S3 rewards.
This is the shop image for the skin.

While it's not currently available in the PBE shop, here's an in-game shot. Please note the size is likely off and some of the particles may be missing!
( NOTE: Scaling is a bit off for these pictures - I would expect them to be smaller )

Here's a small video but please note this is EXTREMELY incomplete - the size is off and some of the particles & sounds may be missing. Let it serve as nothing more than a early sneak peek.

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

  • Enchanted Crystal Arrow ( R ) mana cost reduced to 100 from 150.


  • Playful / Trickster ( E ) got it's Jump "cast radius" increased to 330 from 270. The in-game the targeting ring noticeably increased but this might just be a visual change.

  • Riftwalk ( R ) base jump damage decreased to 80/100/120 from 80/105/130

  • Evolved Void Spike ( W ) now increased slow on Void Spike to 30% ( normal slow is 20% )

  • Reckless Swing ( E ) damage lowered to 70/115/160/205/250 from 75/125/175/225/275 - ( since there is some confusion, please note this brings him back to current live values )

  • Dragon's Descent ( R ) damage changed to 175/300/425 from 200/300/400


  • Scatter The Weak ( E ) range increased to 650 from 550.
For a comparison, here is live ( left ) and PBE ( right ) - use the steps to help see the difference.
