Context & Notes

*tumbleweed blows across in distance*

1) DanielZKlein on Kayn tooltip bug on PBE today:
[1] "There's a tooltip bug fix for Kayn on PBE that has caused some confusion. None of the gameplay on his W is changed at all."
[2] "Assassin W tooltip pulled data from the wrong place. I fixed this once, but the fix got clobbered (by me). I fixed it again!"
2) Ququroon with an update on Skin Portraits:
"Tomorrow's PBE should have all Skin Portraits in (including 7.16's!). Fixing up a few bugs and a /few/ brightness issues. Almost at the end!"
3) Be sure to check out Meddler's July 28th Quick Gameplay Thoughts for recent discussion and context on PBE and upcoming changes, hot fixes, and more.
