  • Skin bios are now on the PBE:
    • Hextech Tristana: "Hex-powered munitions have been around since the early days of hextech innovation, but no one has perfected their use like Tristana. Decorated for her service in protecting the innocent with her Hexcrystal Cannon (Mark III), she stands at the forefront of martial hextechnology as a staunch and noble advocate."
    • Pentakill III: Lost Chapter Olaf:  "All hail, Olaf, the Blastbeat Barbarian, and Chosen of Stentorus! As wild as a tempest, as brutal as an earthquake, he laughs in the faces of his enemies, his pounding drumbeats shaking the very foundations of the world."
    • Pentakill III: Lost Chapter Kayle: "All hail, Kayle, the Bringer of Woe! With the strength of a self-righteous angel, she claims justice and judgment soar on her wings of wrath. Surely, if any can rally the warrior host of metal, it will be her."
    • Pentakill III: Lost Chapter Karthus: "All hail, Karthus, the Voice of Doom, and Chosen of Perpetuum! His songs are bleak murder ballads, a bitter reminder that all things must die. Though, perhaps, not him?"
    • Pentakill III: Lost Chapter Sona: "All hail, Sona, the Silent Virtuoso! An artist's soul can change the world, and with the harmonious power of creation at her fingertips, she will prove that what is made can yet be unmade."
    • Pentakill III: Lost Chapter Mordekaiser: "All hail, Mordekaiser, the Master of Metal, and Chosen of Cacophoni! The brazen giant boasts of his legendary skill with the axe, for none who face its edge live to tell of it..."
    • Pentakill III: Lost Chapter Yorick: "All hail, Yorick, the Four-String Fanatic! He bestrides the realms of the living and the dead, and knows the fate that comes to all mortal things. It pays to beware the honorable man..."
    • Dissonance of Pentakill Viego: "Only the broken-hearted can know the true sound of grief, that yearning for perfection that goes unheard by all others. Viego exists in a world of ashes and shadow, when it ought to be filled with light, and now looks beyond these grey horizons for new sounds and visions to make it so..."

Balance Changes

NOTE*: The PBE is a testing grounds for new, tentative, & potentially experimental changes. Be aware that what you see below may be relative to other changes from earlier this cycle! These are not official notes and may be incomplete.


Context & Notes

1) Here's the latest from the r/LeaguePBE feedback threads:

"Edited to add PBE Feedback notes. 
  • Sizing up hair buns to match more with the splash and be more visible in game.
  • Addressing R feedback of feeling lackluster:
  • Bumped up the gold glows in the front.
  • Bumped up the glow of the god of metal in the center.
  • Increased yellow and dark smoke, and sparkle dots.
  • Increased dark alphas to make the glows pop!
  • SFX will also be adjusted to make the R sound a little louder/impactful too.
Not Changing:
  • Skirt/legs - We won't be opening up the dress to show her legs more. As much as I would love to say yes to this, it's a bit out of scope for us -- we'd be looking at additional rigging and animation support throughout the kit."
