Continued Preseason 2021 Testing

The end of season is fast approaching and with that comes Preseason 2021! As stated in previous dev blogs, there will be a large item & shop overhaul that will be testing on the PBE for an extended length of time (six weeks).

First up, here's the latest from Riot Scruffy on the Preseason changes:
"Small preseason update. Sheen and a few other items are losing their mana components to open them up to new users. We're adjusting the mana pools of champions that typically bought items that will no longer have mana on them.  
All of these champs will have +20 mana per lvl:"

Here's a look at new icons from the store! These are in no particular order, and some icons are placeholders! WIP!


Here's a look at every item in the store as of 10/27!

Consumables

Boots

Basic

Starter

Epic

Legendary
                                      

Mythic
               

Ornn Masterwork Items
               

Check out these recent articles on the item shop changes for an in depth explanation from the devs!

Here's a look at Scruffy's r/LeaguePBE feedback threads for the preseason changes! Make sure to leave any feedback on the changes in these threads:

Preseason Items and Systems Update 

"Hey everyone, The massive item system overhaul is coming to PBE. This is the thread for all feedback related to:
  • Updated stats (like Ability Haste)
  • Mythic items
  • New Legendary items
  • Updated Legendary items
  • Other systems changes like Runes, the Jungle, etc
Some of the new items don’t have final VFX or SFX yet, so if you see something that looks placeholder expect it to be updated soon. We most appreciate feedback around item choice and satisfaction. We won’t turn away any balance feedback, but PBE isn’t the best environment for balance reads because most players haven’t played enough games for matchmaking to be accurate. 
There is a lot to absorb, so take your time playing and give us as much feedback as you can. We’re reading and absorbing all of it."

Preseason Shop and Icons Update

"Hey everyone, This is the thread for feedback on the new shop interface and the update to item icons. We’re most interested in how you are learning the new interface and starting to see the increased speed and intuitiveness of finding the items you need. Feedback on any of these features is welcome: 
  • Recommended Items Tab
  • All items Tab
  • Popular Items
  • Quick access sidebar
  • Item search
  • Item icons
There are a few features still coming that aren’t yet in the build, expect these coming in the next few weeks:
  • Stat filters (AD, AP, Ability Haste, Armor, etc)
  • Item sets
  • “Good against” champion recommendations for items
  • Enhanced Mythic item visuals
  • 100% icons updated (unfinished icons have a silly pink border right now)
  • Enhanced tooltips (shift functionality)
We know that this is a big change, so don’t freak out if it’s not immediately clicking in your first game. Thanks for testing all of this stuff, we’re excited to see your feedback, solve problems, and polish the shop to 100. 
Riot Scruffy"
