Lore

In-Client Bio: "Once an unwilling host to the Aspect of War, Atreus survived when the celestial power within him was slain, refusing to succumb to a blow that tore stars from the heavens. In time, he learned to embrace the power of his own mortality, and the stubborn resilience that goes along with it. Atreus now opposes the divine as Pantheon reborn, his unbreakable will fueling the fallen Aspect's weapons on the field of battle."

Check out Pantheon's full bio on his Universe Page:

Updated Skins

Each of Pantheon's eight skins were also updated:


Myrmidon Pantheon

"“They say the Myrmidons were shaped by the gods—that Zeus himself quickened life into magma. But then, the Myrmidons marched. They marched against us. And in the ash of their skin, the fire of their merciless eyes, I saw all the wars that humanity had wrought. That they... were us.”"

Ruthless Pantheon

"You can't run from your past. Not when it's riding you down from the back of a doombuggy, scrap-spear raised. Hunting for the dregs of the Vandal gang across the wastes, it's said they're the only ones who know his name, and what happened that night… when he became ruthless."


Perseus Pantheon

"Favored by the gods, Perseus gathered five sacred artifacts, and even tamed the wild pegasus, all in his quest to rescue fair Andromeda—only to turn the relics against those same gods when they unleashed the Gorgons upon humanity."

Full Metal Pantheon


Glaive Warrior Pantheon

"Born of a wolf, and bearing the wolf's standard into battle, this Dacian glaive warrior fights in the cold of the Carpathian Mountains—knowing that the blood of his enemies will keep him warm."

Dragonslayer Pantheon

"When dragon fire consumed the world, heroes rose from the embers and cast down the beasts of legend. These warriors passed into history, then myth… until Pantheon alone remained, the last of the ancient dragonslayers, swearing upon the skies eternal revenge."

Each of Dragonslayer Pantheon's chromas were also updated:

      

Zombie Slayer Pantheon



Baker Pantheon





Champion Skins

Two new skins are now on the PBE:

Dragon Oracle Udyr

1350 RP
"To know the dragon spirit is to hold tightly to an ember that still burns. Only through discipline has Udyr survived such magic, seeking not to master the dragons-- as many before him-- but to channel their flame into a blaze hot enough to fuel his own rebirth."

Here's KateyKhaos with a bugs & feedback thread for Dragon Oracle Udyr:
"Dragon Oracle Udyr runs onto the Rift featuring:
  • New models and textures on all forms!
  • New VFX on all forms!
  • New SFX on all forms!
  • New run animation, as well as a new recall animation!
Dragon Oracle Udyr is now available to play on PBE! We always find bug reports and feedback super helpful, so feel free to comment in the thread below! Likewise, if you've got any questions, post 'em here, and we'll do our best to answer them! 
Dragon Oracle Udyr is set to be 1350 RP. 
*Prices on PBE are subject to change."

Hextech Rammus

Gemstones
"Even the most renowned Hextech artificer must bow to the creativity and perfection of nature. After crafting each of Rammus's arcs to mimic the golden spiral, the creature proved so efficient at rolling... it escaped the moment its creator put down her wrench."

Here's KateyKhaos with a bugs & feedback thread for Hextech Rammus:
"Hextech Rammus rolls onto the Rift featuring: 
  • New models and textures!
  • New VFX!
  • New SFX!
  • New recall animation! 
Hextech Rammus is now available to play on PBE! We always find bug reports and feedback super helpful, so feel free to comment in the thread below! Likewise, if you've got any questions, post 'em here, and we'll do our best to answer them!

Context & Notes

1) Here's Riot August with some highly experimental Kayle changes that will be testing on the PBE this cycle:
[1] "These are the Kayle changes I'm putting on the PBE for feedback. 
Goal is to open up Kayle's early game to personal success (and failure) at the cost of late-game power. She should still be a weaker champion early who grows into a carry, but less extreme in both directions."
[2] "These changes are EXPERIMENTAL. As such nothing is guaranteed to ship."
2) AzuBK provided an Aurelion Sol changelist for some highly experimental changes coming to the PBE soon:
"Putting some Aurelion Sol changes on PBE for tomorrow. They've been testing well with ASol players internally, so now it's time: star dragons of the world, please play him and let me know how you feel. Disclaimer: EXPERIMENTAL, may not ship, definitely not this patch."
