ARAM Updates - Mark / Dash added

The new ARAM exclusive Mark / Dash summoner spell is now on the PBE for testing. This is one of the many changes and improvements  to ARAM and Howling Abyss testing this cycle.

"Throw a snowball a long distance, dealing [20 + 10 per level] true damage to the first enemy unit hit. If it hits an enemy, this ability can be recast for 3 seconds to Dash to the tagged unit. Dashing to the target will reduce the cooldown of Mark by 25%.  
Mark projectiles are not stopped by spell shields or projectile mitigation."

"Dash to the unit hit by Mark. Casting Dash will reduce the cooldown of Mark by 25%."

As the icon implies, Mark throws a cool little snowball, which leaves a snow flake when it hits.


Here's a video preview, although the SFX are missing.

New Chroma Packs

[None of these new Chroma packs are up for testing just yet. Will keep you posted!]

Assets for three new Chroma packs have been added in today's patch - sets of 3 color variations for Blitzcrank, Garen, and Pool Party Leona.


The other chromas for Garen and Pool Party Leona are NOT YET IMPLEMENTED. There shop assets exist but their in-game models and assets are missing. We still have a preview via those shop images though.


Pool Party Leona

Check out our comprehensive 5.8 PBE post a look at the Lucian and Dragon Fist Lee Sin chromas added earlier in the cylce.

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.


[IMPORTANT- These are air client only changes atm. This means they won't be testable in-game. Balance numbers can be found in two places - the air client and the game client. Usually these two are synced up but sometimes only one gets a change. This usually means A) the changes will eventually be added game side in a future patch or B) the changes were pulled and may not show up at all.  For now, think of these as "display only" from just the air client.]

  • Void Spike (W) health recovered increased to 60/85/110/135/165 from 40/70/100/130/160

  • HP growth reduced to 90 from 96]
