TFT: Reckoning PBE Testing

TFT Set 5 is here! Check out these links for details on the new set, and look for frequent changelists from Riot Mort on the TFT discord server or his twitter!
Set 5 TFT: Reckoning and the previously announced TFT lab mode Hyper Roll, are now up for testing!

As mentioned in the TFT Dev Drop, Hyper  Roll is the first of the TFT Labs experimental game modes and is planned to launch alongside Reckoning! This is intended to be a shorter version of TFT (~15 min) with things such as a lower health pool, no gold interest (reroll away!), and more rule changes. Keep an eye out for changes as the PBE testing continues or hop in for yourself to try the new lab!

Context & Notes

1) Mort with a tweet chain on TFT: Reckoning and the PBE as things kick off:
[1] "As we get ready for TFT: Reckoning on PBE, it's that time again for me to remind you of a few things that can help PBE be a good experience for everyone involved. 
Please read the whole thread so we can all enjoy... (1 of 6)"

[2] "First, it's PBE. There are bugs. There are things not quite done. The point of PBE is to help find these bugs! 
If you have one you want us to be aware of, please feel free to post it in the TFT Discord or my personal Discord. We'll be reading them all so thanks! (2 of 6)"

[3] "Second, it's PBE. It's not going to be balanced. The shadow items and 16 spatula items means its REALLY not going to be balanced. 
Please give us feedback on either Discord, and we'll be adjusting every day. More games will be played today than the entire dev process. (3 of 6)."

[4] "For clarity, the PBE patches come every weekday around Noon. The PBE will be down around an hour. Don't ask when it will be back up. It's not helpful. 
Patch days will be 14th, 15th, 16th, 19th, 20th, 21st, then one last one on the 26th. (4 of 6)"

[5] "Finally, if you're looking for the daily updates of what changed each day, they'll be posted here as well as the TFT Discord. I'll post them each morning, and they'll go live with the patch deploy. (5 of 6)"

[6] "Ok that's it. Have fun, enjoy trying all the things! Help us fix and balance and polish the set before it goes live! PBE should be up soon! 
(But we're delaying it 1 minute every time someone asks when its up.) 
ENJOY THE RECKONING!!!"
2) KateyKhaos tweeted out that both Conqueror Jax and the DWG skins will be legacy.
"The DWG skins and Conqueror Jax will be legacy. 
Specifics on availability will be available closer to their release. (:"

3) Riot Beardilocks shared some small VFX changes for Full Machine Viktor:
