Maokai updates

Maokai and Charred Maokai have received a few tweaks following his his visual updates that were first introduced in the 11/10 PBE update!

Maokai's base model has received slightly alterations, noticeably around his upper body and around his face.

Maokai's updated Q vfx have also received a color change.

Charred Maokai has also received updates to his textures, adding a darker coloring.

Skin updates

The glossy effect accidentally added to Battlecast Alpha Skarner in yesterday's update has been removed in today's update.

Here's an up to date look at his model, which still has slight color and facial changes compared to the version initially previewed in the 11/4 PBE patch.

Texture Rebalances

Continuing to build on our set of texture rebalances this patch, we have a new rebalance for Sonoran Kog'Maw and updates to the Riven and Urgot texture rebalances!

New in this update is a texture rebalance for Sonoran Kog'Maw, who did not make it in to the initial batch of Kog'Maw texture updates this PBE cycle.!

Check out our earlier PBE coverage for a look at the texture rebalances for Kog'Maw and his other skins!

Riven texture rebalance, which was originally added in an earlier patch,  has been updated! Her hair is now brighter and the Noxian symbol on her armor has been updated.

Urgot's texture rebalance has also been updated, swapping out his gold blade and removing the skull on his shoulder pad.

Kalista Login Theme

Kalista's login animation has also been added to the PBE but currently lacks unique music.

Riot Ve1vet noted on twitter:
"We're aware of the missing Kalista music on her login screen and going to fix it for tomorrow's PBE, sorry about that!"

For now, here's the animation:


Kalista's in-game icon has been slightly altered with a darker border.
