Ban: "Back to sleep then..."

Here are the non-English voiceovers for Galio:


Here's the updated short in-client lore entry for Galio:
"Outside the gleaming city of Demacia, the stone colossus Galio keeps vigilant watch. Built as a bulwark against enemy mages, he often stands motionless for decades until the presence of powerful magic stirs him to life. Once activated, Galio makes the most of his time, savoring the thrill of a fight and the rare honor of defending his countrymen. But his triumphs are always bittersweet, for the magic he destroys is also his source of re-ani11mation, and each victory leaves him dormant once again."
A longer champion bio and introduction are now available at his Universe page!

In the 3/15 PBE update, there were new AIR client assets for Brolaf chroma. Unfortunately there are no actual in-game assets and they are not available for testing - assumed to not be available in 7.6.



New Summoner Icons

A total of three new summoner icons were added this cycle - no details on availability yet! 

New Galio Update Login Theme

This cycle also brought us a new Galio login theme to go along with his champion update!

Updated Lux Base Voiceover

Lux's base voiceover was updated this cycle! This updated VO includes new lines mixed in with some of the older lines. Over on reddit, Meddler also noted this is the original VO actor who also did Lux's original and the Elementalist Lux voiceovers.

Here is an updated special interactions video:

To go with her updated voiceover, Lux has also has new champion select pick and ban quotes on LCU:
PICK: "Let's light it up!"
BAN: "But all my light puns would have brightened your day..."

LCU Champion Select Improvements

In an earlier patch this PBE cycle, the LCU's champion select Summoner's Rift map was updated, including fading half the map based on your side, several color/design changes, and more.

LIVE (left) and PBE (right)

Here are the raw assets - each with one side dimmed based on which side your team is:


  • A curious new URGOT in-game model showed up in the 3/7 PBE update files. Currently this is the only different asset, no textures or any other files were changed/added.  We know Urgot is in line for a champion update in the future. Presumably this model is a work in progress of some sort and made it's way to PBE by accident. The skn/skl files were removed in the second update on 3/7.
  • Nexus Siege has returned to the PBE for RGMQ testing during this PBE cycle.
  • Blast Cone's targeting indicator has been improved, it now moves around more smoothly. [gif]

  • Arcade Corki has received changes to his E and R vfx this cycle - missile shape has been changed and E projectiles are thinner and longer. 

Balance Changes
