Aftershock (R1)
[Aftershock has other changes in testing on the PBE!]
  • Armor and MR changed from [85 - 175] to [70 - 120]
    • Vs Live: from [20 + 30% ] to [70 - 120]

Context & Notes

1) KateyKhaos noted the splash art for Sweetheart Xayah and Sweetheart Rakan would be flipped so that it would show correctly on loading screens when both skins were in game:
"These will be flipped properly for release. ^^ Please note that the entire splash will be flipped, so things like bangs will appear opposite of how they on the in-game model. Pretty common for us to do, just a heads up!"
