New Splash Arts

This update features new splash arts for Caitlyn ( her default ) and the upcoming Soulstealer Vladimir skin!


Soulstealer Vladimir

[ Interested in a better look at Soulstealer Vladimir in-game? Check out our earlier PBE coverage!

Summoner's Rift Update no longer available.

The Summoner's Rift Update is no longer accessible on the PBE, likely since the PBE is being prepped for the live deploy of 4.11 and the SR update will NOT BE INCLUDED. 

[ Update ]Confirmed in PBE thread:
"The updated Summoner's Rift has been removed from PBE cycles while we verify patch 4.11 stability. It will be back afterwards!"

While it may be temporarily gone, you can check out our Summoner's Rift megapost for another look!

[Updated] Headhunter Caitlyn Texture Note

 As you may recall from yesterday's PBE update, Headhunter Caitlyn received significant changes to her model but also had missing textures on her helm.

Riot Whist commented these were incomplete textures and a finished version should be here soon.
"Actually this was the incorrect UVs in conjunction with a WIP texture that accidently got moved to PBE.

The finished texture work will be arriving shortly."
While the finished version is NOT in today's ( the 6/26 ) update, I thought you may like to know.
