Context & Notes

1) Riot Jag provided a preview of PBE changes for the 11.16 PBE cycle:

11.16 Full Preview is here!

Again, reminder that this patch will hit live 1 week later than normal.

2) Here's the latest from the r/LeaguePBE feedback threads on the skins this cycle:

"Post PBE Cycle update:
  • Hair color adjusted to better match platinum-blodne visible on splash
  • Tails made significantly darker
  • Spirit Rush (R):
  • Added glow vfx on tails' when Ahri has remaining charges, which was previously missing
  • the on-ground mark was adjusted to increase its visibility 
Due to technical limitations we were not able to make the skull inside the orb to follow Ahri's facing directions."

Old God Warwick

"Post PBE Cycle update:
  • Runic circle on his back now rotates slowly
  • Blood Hunt [W] scent trail was recolored to purple"

Coven LeBlanc Prestige Edition

"Post PBE Cycle update: 
We decided to not make any major changes to the Skin. 
Adjusting texture colors to lighter gold would make those elements blend with her dress, while significant adjustment of the dress color would push it out of the Prestige theme.
We also made a second pass to ensure that abilities empowered with R are different enough from base version, and found no issues with these."

Coven Ashe

"Post PBE Cycle update: 
No major changes made to the skin based on feedback."

Old God Malphite

"Post PBE Cycle update: 
No major changes made to the skin based on feedback."
