Context & Notes

1) Make sure to check out Meddler's quick gameplay thoughts for October 27th, including discussion on the balance teams personal ranked ratings, health bar improvements, and 'Bandit' on support items!

2) KateyKhaos posted a few Mecha Rengar tweaks we should be seeing this week on the PBE. Make sure to keep an eye out on the Mecha Rengar feedback thread for further updates!
Early next week 
  • Thrill of the Hunt (R) indicator will appropriately show the range.
  • VO processing on his roar for Unseen Predator (P) leap/Thrill of the Hunt (R).
  • Joke animation will be similar to that of Night Hunter Rengar 'cause he doesn't have a beard.
  • Rengar's head will be ever so slightly larger. Change will not be extreme to avoid clipping with his adjacent armor."
