Lore

Gwen's champion page and biography are up on the Universe!

In-Client bio:
"A former doll transformed and brought to life by magic, Gwen wields the very tools that once created her. She carries the weight of her maker's love with every step, taking nothing for granted. At her command is the Hallowed Mist, an ancient and protective magic that has blessed Gwen's scissors, needles, and sewing thread. So much is new to her, but Gwen remains joyfully determined to fight for the good that survives in a broken world."

Voiceover

Here's Gwen's full voiceover:

Choose VO: "Head high, chin up, scissors ready!"

Ban VO: "Why not? My scissors don't bite."

Gwen's theme was also added to the PBE:

Release Skin

Gwen's release skin is Space Groove Gwen:

Space Groove Gwen

1350 RP
"It was pretty far out when Gwen applied to be Lux and Samira's quartermaster—after all, no one else did. Cheerfully sewing good vibes into great clothes, she amplifies disco energy through her nifty threads. Though she's new to this whole galactic hero gig, one thing's for sure: no way Gwen lets her friends liberate the galaxy in less-than-stellar outfits."

Aram specific VFX updates are now on the PBE! Here's more details and a changelist from Riot Sirhaian:

Here's a full changelist:

"Here's a full changelist! Once again, these are very small tweaks and clean-ups to try and modernize some of the oldest VFXs in the game. They are not meant to be a big change."
He tweeted details on a known bug that will be fixed next update:
There's currently a bug on PBE in ARAM where some champions might throw poro-snaxes instead of their spells if they previously used a poro-snax to feed a poro. This has already been fixed for the next PBE update but thought I'd let you all know just in case. ๐Ÿ‘€ 
 it pretty fun tho"
