Context & Notes

1) Check out these post-PBE updates on the skins this cycle from the QA team:

Shan Hai Scrolls Neeko 

"We've made following changes to SHS Neeko: 
Blooming Burst (Q): Made the difference between hit and no-hit more obvious, added secondary pattern ('flower'), sun now changes position with each phase of the 3 explosions: https://imgur.com/a/7zyrjLe
Tangle Barbs (E): minor polishes, with intention to make it more visible: https://imgur.com/a/dxdr8TV
Pop Blossom (R): Added one more pattern in the first phase and cloudy elements in the burst phase: https://imgur.com/a/MmDJU5C"
Shan Hai Scrolls Jhin
"Jhin post-PBE notes: 
Whisper (passive): added more bass to the 4th shot sfx
Dancing Grenade (Q): 4th bounce should be more visible ('hotter') when it's going to deal maximum damage
Curtain Call (R): Fixed a bug, causing mountains not to be visible for the on-ground indicator https://imgur.com/a/l1Elt8B
Curtain Call (R): The difference between first 3 and the last bullet more significant https://imgur.com/a/e42HPLI
Curtain Call (R): Added more oomph to last shot SFX (similarly to passive)
"We decided to not make any changes to the skin."
"No notable changes made to the Skin."
"Karma Post-PBE Notes:
  • The team discussed Karma's skin tone feedback, and will not be mnaking changes to lighten it. We feel that the current tone is aligned with her base.
  • Bug fix: Scrtipt was updated so her Mantle of Decorum animated and glowed properly.
  • Added glowing eyes to Mantra (R).
  • Inspire (E) shield spawn VFX have been polished, should be smoother.
  • Mantra (R) + Focused Resolve (W) tether has been polished, it's now easier to differentiate from her unempowered Focused Resolve (W).
  • Minor texture updates during Mantra (R) to make her more glowy."
"Shyvana Post-PBE Notes:
  • Bug fix: Minimized major clipping.
  • Bug fix: Slowed down her death animation, as it was playing too quickly.
  • Bug fix: Flame Breath (E) VFX are no longer invisible, and have also been polished - satisfation around the missile, rebalancing some of the AoE VFX.
  • Dragon's Descent (R) VFX have been updated, should feel more satisfying."

Ruined Draven

"Draven Post-PBE Notes 
  • Axe design will be remaining as-is. Context: The design was meant to be different from anything his current catalog as to offer. Additionally, the design is also in line with Viego/Ruined shape language.
  • Similarly, the triangle will also be remaining pointy. We did discuss similarities with PROJECT, but feel that the Shadow Isles vibe of the design keep it differentiated."
"edit2: to mark post PBE Changes & fixes: 
fixed a bug when Karma's preview images were using her Mantra stance
fixed a bug when Nautilus' anchor was using parent skin colors during Dredge Line (Q)
Shyvana's chest emblem is now uniquely colored to match Chroma theme in her Dragon Form
we've decided to not to change Shyvana's Dragon Form eyes color to make it serve as a link to the abilities VFX 
Edit. Jan 8th: Karma's hair have been updated!"
2) Riot Scruffy provided changelists for Patch 11.2:
"Patch Preview 11.2 with all tentative changes 
A few additions, and not 100% locked down but we're getting close."
