Posted on at 11:37 AM by Moobeat
[3/20 Update: Small patch went out on 3/20 but nothing much worth sharing as we wrap up the cycle. Champion Mastery has also been temporarily disabled while the PBE patch is locked down for live.]

The PBE has been updated! Today's update includes a new golden spatula summoner icon and a shared splash art for the five upcoming April Fools' themed skins!

New Splash Art

A new shared splash for the upcoming April Fools' themed skins for Amumu, Nami, Nasus, Soraka, and Udyr has been added in today's update!

Here's the splash for Archduke Nasus, Urf the Nami-tee, Order of the Banana Soraka, & Definitely Not Udyr
Surprise Party Amumu has the same splash but flipped to have him on the right.
Here are the loading screen slices for each of the five skins:

New summoner icon

We also have new URF-y summoner icon featuring a mighty fine looking golden spatula. No details yet on availability... wonder what it could be for...

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.

Athene's Unholy Grail

  • Mana regen increased to 100% from 50%
  • Unique Passive now restores 30% of maximum mana on kill/assist up from 15%
  • [Note: This change was actually added in an earlier PBE patch in this cycle but I missed documenting it! Adding it here for visibility]

Hunter's Machete
  • The Hunter's Machete changes seen in an earlier patch this PBE cycle have been reverted!
  • Health regen reverted to 7 from 6.
  • REMOVED - New Effect: Health gained per second increased to 12 while below 50% health
  • [Note: Riot Reinboom confirmed these changes will be returning next cycle - "It will return. We didn't finish testing the numbers thoroughly enough (we're being very careful with this) and we would like.. 1/2" and "..to do some tweaks to all the upgraded machete lines."

Mandrake Ward
  • [As the 5.6 PBE cycle wraps up on the PBE, this experimental item has been removed for now. See Xypherous' context post for more information on Mandrake Ward.]
