New Splash Art

The splash art for Dark Waters Diana and Dark Waters Vladimir are now on the PBE:

Dark Waters Diana

"Diana was once an extremist within the Order of the Mother Serpent, but now spends her days murdering her employer's enemies by the light of the moon. In Bilgewater it's less about who you were, and more about the message you send."

Dark Waters Vladimir

"In his younger days, Vladimir practiced at a school of medicine known for magically manipulating the humors of a patient's body. Turns out in Bilgewater there's more coin to be made killing than saving, and now he's found himself in a much more lucrative—if not messier—line of work."

Context & Notes

1) Riot Maple talked more on the 8.10 Jungle changes and their plan of action for further changes:
"As followup to yesterday's message we're aiming to be get a few changes to PBE next week to address some of the concerns we've seen so far. 
1. Buffing runic echoes or changing the build path to be more friendly for junglers that want to build it. Potential tactic is replacing lost chapter with fiendish codex and a few other tweaks. 
2. Increasing Scuttle Crab respawn time slightly (15 seconds) and increasing xp on other jungle camps slightly to account for that. 
3. Individual buffs/nerfs for champs that gained/lost too much. 
We'll continue to monitor how things are shaking out and will look to respond accordingly Please keep the feedback coming as you play more games on the patch! 
Thanks everyone."
2) Lowbo noted Atma's Reckoning and Spear of Shojin would be added to ARAM in today's Update:
"That's a good question! I'll enable them, but it won't go through till the next PBE deploy which might be on Monday."
