New Missions Assets

Another interesting asset related to forthcoming Missions made it's way on to the PBE today. The two figures in this lone image seem to share themes related to the new summoner icons seen on 5/16. Missions are not accessible or up for PBE testing at this time, only assets pulled from the client.

Context & Notes

and if your not down with that then we got two words for ya - WIP IT

1) From a message on the PBE Service Status page, the PBE will be in extended maintenance on May 23rd:
"PBE will undergo extended maintenance on Tuesday, May 23rd. Please also note that as part of maintenance preparations, any changes to account data between the May 22nd and 23rd maintenances will not be recorded. We recommend that players refrain from making major changes during this timeframe (For example: if you add a Rune to one of your Rune Pages on May 22nd after maintenance, that change will be reverted back on May 23rd.). Thank you for your patience."
2) Asyrite noted Malzahar changes should hit the PBE soon - estimated for 5/19 unless issues.

3) Ricklessabandon tweeted a set of Malzahar changes that should be on the pbe soon!
"okay, the next pbe update (should be tomorrow) will have the full set of malzahar changes that will ship in the 7.11 patch"
