Skin Updates

Inquisitor Sivir

Inquisitor Sivir has received several tweaks to her model and textures in today's update, including her helmet, chest armor, the color of her waist, the positioning of her weapon, and more.

Marauder Warwick

Marauder Warwick has also received a few tweaks, including the color of his collar and his claws!
Full previews of these and the other new skins in this PBE cycle can be found here.

Camera Lock Mode Option

There also a new "Camera Lock Mode" in the option menu.
This change is only when you play with your camera LOCKED or when you recenter your camera using the space bar.

Here are some examples of the "Fixed Offset" vs "Per-Side Offset" on each side:

Fixed Offsetvs Per-Side Offseton Blue

Fixed Offset vs Per-Side Offset on Red

In the set of screenshots above, my character is standing in the same place but notice the "Fixed Offset" option has them centered (how it works now) and the "Per-Side Offset" shifts the camera slightly depending on which side you are on. 


The new spawn and death animations for the default wards, that were originally added in the 1/29 PBE update, have been removed.

Balance Changes

* Remember *: The PBE is a testing grounds for new, tentative, 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! These are not official notes.

  • The time in which you can not gain rage after transforming from Mega to Mini increased to 15 seconds from 13 seconds.

Farsight Orb
  • Tooltip update to includes "Also places a visible ward in the area that lasts 60 seconds."
  • [Note: This change does not seem to be functioning in-game yet! They did add a new icon for the Farsight Orb's ward though.]
