Hextech Crafting and Loot

[NOTE: Players non legacy/limited skin inventories should all be wiped in today's update to facilitate better testing! This happened to everyone so don't panic if things are missing! Test away!]

The Hextech Crafting & Loot system continues testing on the PBE! To follow up on yesterday's debut, here's a video opening over 40 chests and combining things in the new system!

Look for more information? Check out the announcement post, another video preview, or check out our previous PBE coverage for a walkthrough. Feel free to drop any questions in the comment section!

Jhin, the Virtuoso testing continues!

After his introduction in the 1/13 PBE update, Jhin continues his PBE testing performance!

As for today, we only have a few small changes and bug fixes - including various tooltip tweaks, his champion page title corrected to "The Virtuoso" and his lore quote changed to "'Art requires a certain...cruelty.'

  • While we mentioned the new background yesterday, the Snowdown shop tab now says "Lunar Revel shop". 

  • The leagues team page includes a preview of the 2016 Ranked Team Reward ward skins to be released at the end of the 2016 ranked season! [This was likely added in an earlier patch but I just now stumbled on it - woops!]

Balance Changes
