Table of Contents


Miscellaneous 

  • Blood Moon Sivir skin bio:
A newly anointed priestess of the Blood Moon cult, Sivir wields a weapon that is both a killing tool and a key to the hellish mirror world where all demons are born. Slowly but surely, it has merged her twinned selves, and now it is no longer clear where the human ends and the monster begins.

Balance Changes

Fizz
  • Seastone Trident (W) passive damage lowered from 20/30/40/50/60 to 10 at all ranks

Context & Notes

1) Captain Gameplay noted some changes on the PBE today were unintentional due to some tooltip rescripting:
"Fizz W change is a mistake on some spell rescripting and unintended 
Ashe W tooltip is wrong, and it's not meant to grant ranger's focus stacks (nor does it)."
