Gangplank the Betrayer

1350 RP
Energized by a mysterious amulet containing Viego of Camavor and wielding the Blade of the Ruined King, Gangplank's personality erupted as he raged in search of the long-lost Isolde. Though ultimately freed of the King's influence by a group of heroes, he carries the experience with him... a reminder, perhaps, of true power

Sea Dog Yasuo

1350 RP
Empowered by the Buhru during his fight against Viego of Camavor, Yasuo made an unlikely champion for the children of Nagakabouros-- his obsession with past events flew in the face of everything they believed in. Yet even the mangiest sea dog has his day, and Yasuo stood against the forces of darkness, emerging triumphant.

Solar Eclipse Sivir

1820 RP / Legendary
A mercenary Eclipse Knight known for her skill in battle and lack of chivalry, Sivir sells her services eliminating witches and monsters who menace the countryside, ignoring threats that do not prove lucrative. Though many knights find nobility in their stated purpose, Sivir cares naught but for coin, pledging to aid her order only in their final, dire hour.

As a legendary skin, Solar Eclipse Sivir has a new voiceover:

Lunar Eclipse Senna

1350 RP
An ancient knight long thought dead, freed from the Eclipse Cathedral's catacombs as Kayle began to stir from her ancient slumber. Senna now aids her knighthood against the new threat of the Coven, saving whoever she can from the resurrected Old Gods... though she remains ever vigilant, as the sun-eater's return is now inevitable.

Swain Mid-Scope Update

The Swain mid-scope update is now testing on the PBE! Here's Riot Truexy with a changelist and context:
Make sure to leave any feedback in the feedback thread HERE!

Tooltips:

Olaf Mid-Scope Update

The Olaf mid-scope update is also now on the PBE for testing, aiming for a 12.9 release. Here's Riot Axes with details and a feedback thread:
"The Olaf mid scope update is coming to PBE today with an intended ship date of patch 12.9 (not 12.8). Putting him up early for feedback, so he should be on PBE for about a week, and then he’ll disappear as we prep patch 12.8. He’ll return to PBE when we kick off the 12.9 cycle. 
Before getting into the actual changes, let’s talk goals. One common response to the initial announcement was confusion as to why he’d be next up on the list for an update.

Olaf has a number of urgent issues we’re looking to address. First, he is (and has consistently been) the least deeply played champion in League—on average, that is (Olaf one tricks don’t @ me.) If Olaf is a champion you play, he probably makes up the lowest percent of your games played, and has consistently been among the lowest for many years now. Second, he’s a deeply pro-bound champion: his win rate is kept lower than would otherwise be ideal because he tends to take over pro play when his kit is tuned to win games in Solo Queue. And third, he’s been deeply impacted by systems changes this season, even more so than other fighters, putting him in particularly bad shape with the current item system. 
With these problems in mind, the goals for this update are to add significant excitement to his kit, remove a bit of pro-oriented power (reduce how easily he escapes dangerous situations with his R as well as curb how fast his jungle clear can get when perfectly optimized.) Lastly, this update should help him use Juggernaut items effectively to scale better than before, which should also make him more resilient to future systems changes. For lanes, we’re aiming to preserve his ability to Jungle (while making it more accessible) while significantly increasing his viability in Top Lane. 
The changes as of now are:

Base Stats
  • Attack Damage :: 68 (+3.5/level), 127.5 at level 18 >>> 68 (+4.7/level), 148 at level 18
  • Health :: 575 (+100/level), 2275 at level 18 >>> 575 (+105/level), 2360 at level 18
  • Mana :: 316 (+42/level), 1030 at level 18 >>> 316 (+60/level), 1336 at level 18
Passive - Berserker Rage
  • Calculation reworked to grant max effectiveness at or below 30% health
  • Maximum Attack Speed granted :: 99% >>> 40-100% (levels 1-18)
  • [NEW] Now gives up to 12-35% life steal (levels 1-18), based on Olaf's missing health

  • [NEW] - Shreds 25/27.5/30/32.5/35% armor for 4 seconds on champion hit
  • Damage :: 80/125/170/215/260 >>> 60/110/160/210/260
  • Minimum Range :: Approximately 300 >>> 425
  • Mana Cost :: 60 at all ranks >>> 40/45/50/55/60
  • Cooldown :: 7 seconds >>> 8 seconds
  • Cooldown refund on axe pickup :: 4.5 seconds >>> 5 seconds
W - Vicious Strikes [REWORKED]
(ability may be renamed)
  • [NEW] Resets Olaf’s basic attack
  • [NEW] Olaf gains 70/115/160/205/250 (+25% of Olaf’s missing health) as a shield for 2.5 seconds
  • [REMOVED] No longer grants Life Steal
  • [REMOVED] No longer amplifies Olaf’s healing based on missing health
  • Attack Speed :: 50/60/70/80/90% for 6 seconds >>> 40/50/60/70/80% for 4 seconds
  • Cooldown :: 16 seconds at all ranks>>> 16/14.5/13/11.5/10 seconds
R - Ragnarok
  • [NEW] Hitting a champion with a basic attack or E - Reckless Swing extends the duration of Ragnarok to 2.5 seconds. Olaf can refresh Ragnarok indefinitely.
  • Duration :: 6 seconds >>> 3 seconds
  • [REMOVED] R - Ragnarok's passive's bonus resistances are no longer lost for the duration of the cast
(Heads up that a couple of bugs with passive attack speed and R passive resists slipped in on moving him to PBE, those should be fixed on next deploy)"
