Continued Runes Reforged Testing & Changes

Rune Reforged, the new combination of runes and masteries into one new system, continues testing on the PBE this cycle - including runes themselves, the runes panel, the client run inventory and editing ui, base stat and jungle tuning, & more.

Wrekz shared today's rune balance changes & bugfixes in this tweet chain.
"Oh hey forgot to post the Runes Reforged changelist today. 
Summon Aery
Not visible during idle state anymore, only visible during homeguard+recall. Reduces visual noise. 
Gathering Storm
Made the tooltip have correct values for AD granted 
Lethal Tempo
Fixed a bug where the buff duration was not extending on hitting champions 
Press The Attack
Damage amp now applies to ALL damage (not just user)
Ranged Melee splits mostly removed (only damage amp different) 
Zombie Ward
No longer spawns a Zombie Ward when a ward you own dies due to exceeding ward limit.
Fixed some animation issues"
For a complete listing of the new Runes effects and values, have a look at our Runes Effects and Values document (including a helpful changelist to note changes from a certain date):

Evelynn Login Theme

A new login theme featuring the Evelynn Update is now on the PBE:

Simultaneous Draft Picks are now enabled on PBE! 

Here's Riot SapMagic with more on Simultaneous Draft picks on the PBE:
"Hey friends, it's ya boy SapMagic back at it again with some Champ Select changes coming to a client near you very soon. We just activated simultaneous draft picks on PBE for testing. We posted about these a few days ago if you need a refresher. 

Now, when your team has back-to-back actions in Champ Select, they will happen simultaneously, illustrated below on the right by light-gray boxes behind the circles. 
Jump into a draft pick game on PBE and let us know how it feels for you!"
