Context & Notes

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

Ashen Slayer Sylas
"End of PBE Update: 
Hello! 
Thanks to everyone who stopped by and dropped their feedback in the thread. Let me address most popular points: 
- Full body armor: Unfortunately, this is above possible scope for PBE timeline, but we will keep it in mind for future designs. Please refer to the guidelines in this thread to learn more. 
- Sylas’ helmet is identical to Pantheon’s: While they share similar design pillars the models are different (https://imgur.com/4G5D66n ) After having discussed with the team, we feel the helmets are unique enough while retaining the key elements to the thematic. 
- Change of helmet model/adding a hood: these requests fall into the same category as full body armor. 
- Wings from R appearing on other abilities: The team wanted to keep this element impactful, and the team feels that if we add the wings to other abilities, it will detract from the ultimate moment 
- Wings disappearing when Sylas moves: unfortunately this is a technical limitation. Wings are triggered by the animation, and when the animation changes, the wings need to disappear or they will just linger in the original place & orientation. We will revisit this issue if we have a solution around the limitation. 
- We double checked if the SFX (chorus) when Sylas steals an enemy ultimate is cut-off at the end and made a small adjustment to alleviate that feeling. 
- We agree that Sylas’ body was looking too monochromatic and the color balance has been polished.(https://imgur.com/bdtMEVN)"

Emberwoken Chromas

"End of PBE Update: 
- Passive VFX for Pantheon Emberwoken Chroma was adjusted to increase its visibility. 
Thanks for the questions and constructive feedback!"
