New Esports Summoner Icons

Forty-six new Esports themed summoner icons are now on the PBE! These join seventy-two other icons seen in the 8.1 PBE cycle:

Lunar Revel Event Assets

Assets for Lunar Revel themed loot are now on the PBE! 


Here are the descriptions for each of the items:
  • Revel Golden Coin: Used to craft Golden Lunar Revel Chromas
  • Revel Token: Granted for completing Lunar Revel missions. Craft into exclusive rewards during the event. Tokens expire from inventory on March 12, 2018 at 11:59 p.m. PT.
  • Revel Grab Bag: Open to reveal 5 skin shards, one from every skin tier up to Legendary.
  • Revel Skin Shard: Contains a skin shard for a random Revel skin. Does not include Lunar Empress Lux, Lunar Guardian Nasus, or Lunar Guardian Warwick
  • Revel Orb: Get a guaranteed Skin Shard with a chance to contain bonuses like a Revel Orb, Revel Grab Bag, or Gold Coin. Gemstone and Gemstone Skin Shard drop rate multiplied by 1.5.

This seems to confirm that the matching Golden Chroma and icons for the older Lunar Revel skins that we saw in the 1/9 PBE Update will be craftables.

Context & Notes

1) Riot Maple provided a changelist on the Evelynn changes in today's update:
"The current changes for Eve (since it looks like they're not showing up for you?)"

2) Riot Maple also noted some Viktor changes that should be coming to the PBE soon:
"Got another on for Viktor that didn't hit the PBE today. We're talking about whether we have room for another line, but for now we're pretty confident in this as a direction."

3) KateyKhaos noted some changes for each of the new skins would be trickling into each daily PBE update:
"Hi friends! We've been discussing feedback for all of the skins on PBE. Tweaks won't be in tomorrow's build - we need a bit of time to implement them - but you should see things trickling onto PBE by the end of the week. No spoilers!"
4) Ricklessabandon shared a tentative changelist for Nunu from today's PBE:
[1] "putting some nunu changes in for the next pbe build (should be tomorrow) should have updates to aftershock and guardian a full day -after- that"
[2] "quick preview for anyone curious about the nunu changes:"
[3] "(the new on-hit bonus from Q is per stack, so you can get 5x the listed amounts if you're super well fed)" 
He also noted that the Blood Boil interaction is bugged at the moment:
"heads up on the nunu changes on pbe today — pretty sure there's a bug 
< bug > blood boil gives both beneficiaries 40% of the -target's- ability power 
< expected > blood boil gives himself 40% of his ability power, and gives the other beneficiary 40% of their own ability power"
