Champion Skins

Firecracker Xin Zhao is now on the PBE for testing!

Firecracker Xin Zhao

1350 RP
Xin Zhao is a popular man at the New Year's festival-- and not just because he hands out lots of red envelopes. He is the reliable protector that keeps his more chaotic friends from getting into often-explosive mischief, and does it all with a cool, casual grace that leaves everyone swooning.

Here's Riot Ehrgeizsu with a bugs & feedback thread for Firecracker Xin Zhao:
"To the arena! 
Firecracker Xin Zhao comes with:
  • New models and textures!
  • New VFX!
  • New SFX!
  • New Recall!
Firecracker Xin Zhao should be already available on PBE! Feel free to leave any feedback or questions you have so far down below!

TFT Corner

New tacticians are now on the PBE for testing! [No assets are available just yet!]

Little Legends

  • Sweet Petal Dowsie
  • Lucky Noodle Dowsie
  • Fortune Dowsie
  • Extra Spicy Dowsie
  • Porcelain Dowsie

Chibi Champions

  • Chibi Firecracker Jinx

Miscellaneous

  • Skin bios added:
    • Firecracker Diana: Market stalls offer the Lady of the Moon their wares freely, in hope of receiving a blessing for the New Year. Diana is happy to oblige, even if it means getting stopped every few feet by another well-wisher... Luckily, Diana's festival buddies are patient.
    • Firecracker Tristana: As the master of fireworks for this year's revel, Tristana has worked hard to create a show the festival goers will never forget. Now that the New Year is here she's excited to sit back and enjoy the night with her friends… but she's saved some of her best explosions for last.


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.

Rengar

Tahm Kench
  • Devour (R) - Ally champion cast no longer self slows TK and now grants a 40% movement speed bonus.


Context & Notes


1) Riot Phroxzon noted on twitter a few additional changes planned for 12.2:
"A few more changes being worked on for 12.2 that couldn't quite make 12.1. 
* Rengar will leap when Camouflaged (which includes Chemfog). 
* Tahm Kench has changes to help his Support role become more viable 
* Lethal tempo is being looked at to better balance it for melee"

2) Make sure to leave any constructive feedback for the skins and chromas this cycle over on the r/LeaguePBE feedback threads!
