Context & Notes

"11.19 Patch Preview is here!

This one is focused on follow-up for 11.18, a few more pro-targeted changes, and one solo queue focused nerf (Sona)."

2) Captain Gameplay provided Sona changelist headed to the PBE soon:
"Looks like Sona failed to squeak."

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

"Edited to add PBE Feedback Notes. 
What's Changing:
  • We will be adding more fluff to the model (via small model and texture tweaks) to better match the splash. This will be on PBE next week!
  • The sound designer will be taking a listen through the kit to make the SFX less soft/more impactful. This will be on PBE next week!
What's Not Changing:
  •  After chatting with our VO peeps and production, adding voice processing is unfortunately out of scope for this skin, as we’d need to do it for all languages, and it’s not as simple as moving a slider; all lines are hand processed."

Worlds 2021 Jarvan IV
Hello all! Thank you everyone that took the time to leave feedback. The team had a look and we decided no to make any changes to Worlds 2021 Jarvan IV at this time. We felt he is currently in a very solid state. Thank you again!
Nightbringer Kayn
  • Hello All! Thank you for the feedback. The team went through everything and made a couple of couple updates:
  • Nightbringer Kayn's ability SFX have been updated to provide a bit more impact.
  • His in-game facial model has been aligned with Base to help address his "Kayn Syndrome"

Dawnbringer Morgana

Hello All! Thank you everyone who left feedback. The team had a look and we were able to make a few updates:
  • Morgana's model lip color has been adjusted. Her lips will now appear more full and more closely align with Base.
  • Tormenting Shadow(W) now has unique VFX on enemy feet when they enter the AOE.
  • A VFX glow has been added to her 'empowered' arm to more closely align with previous Dawnbringer skins.
Nightbringer Tryndamere
Hello All! Thank you those that left feedback. The team had a look and we were able to make a couple of updates:
  • 'Spark' VFX have been added to his sword during various animations when it drags along the ground.
  • Nightbringer Tryndamere's Undying Rage (R) VFX have been updated slightly to address an issue with Sylas Hijack(R).
