New Champion: Aphelios

Our newest champion, Aphelios, is now on the PBE for testing! For more info, check out these links:
Before we get into the details, here's Stashu with a feedback thread for Aphelios:
Hello! 
Our latest champion Aphelios has hit PBE! We've got a bit to do before he's ready to release, but you can help us! We welcome you to leave any thoughts or feedback on your Aphelios experience in this thread and we'll see what we can do to improve the experience. Also, if you happen to come across something odd during your time playing as, with, or against Aphelios on the PBE, please let us know through the Report a Bug Tool with a description of what happened and whatever other information you can provide. 
Since we're coming down the home stretch here, I might be a little too busy to be very active in this thread, but I'll be checking in here periodically to see what's happening. Hope you enjoy your time with Aphelios! 
Cheers~

Abilities:

[Because of Aphelios' intricate weapon switching kit, we're going to use Riot Aether's kit primer as base then add in our own screenshots, ratios, & numbers taken from the PBE.]

Aphelios Kit Primer

"Most champions can be summarized relatively quickly, but Aphelios isn't most champions. Learning to wield the Weapon of the Faithful demands discipline, focus, and mental acuity, so consider this primer your first test of faith along the path to mastering a champion with one of the highest skill ceilings in the game. (But really, this page has a ton of info to process. Read it a couple times, probably.
We're going to start with the overall structure of Aphelios' kit, then get into what each of his weapons does. 
How the kit works 
Guns, basic attacks & ammo
Aphelios cycles through five weapons, each with its own basic attack. He attacks with his main-hand weapon, but always carries an off-hand weapon he can swap to with W. 
Aphelios can't pick and choose which two weapons he equips at any given time. His weapons have 50 ammo ("Moonlight") each, and when a weapon runs empty you get the next one in line. Empty weapons go to the end of the line to recharge. 
Since Aphelios can swap between his main-hand and off-hand, weapon order changes throughout the game based on which weapons you use first. 
Abilities 
Aphelios only has three buttons: Q, W, and R. W swaps between his main- and off-hand weapons, leaving him with two actual abilities. Kind of. 
Each of Aphelios' five weapons has its own Q ability when equipped as his main-hand weapon. Each Q applies bonus attacks and effects based on his off-hand weapon. All five Qs cost mana and ammo, and each has its own cooldown (you can Q, switch guns, then immediately use the other Q). Aphelios automatically learns Q at level 2 and it slowly becomes stronger over the course of the game. We'll get to what each Q does in the weapon sections below. 
Aphelios' ultimate, Moonlight Vigil, sends forward a moon bomb that explodes on the first enemy hit, damaging nearby enemies. Then, Aphelios follows up with enhanced basic attacks from his main-hand weapon against all enemies caught in the explosion. He automatically learns R at level 6, and it automatically levels up at levels 11 and 16.  
Level-ups 
Since Aphelios automatically learns his Q and R, he puts his 18 level-up points into stats rather than abilities: 
  • Attack Damage [4/8/12/16/24]
  • Attack Speed [6/12/18/24/30/36%]
  • Bonus Armor Penetration [3/6/9/12/15/18%]

Calibrum, the Rifle
Calibrum 
Calibrum is a poke/harass weapon. Its basic attacks have [+100] extra range. 
When abilities deal damage with Calibrum, they mark enemies hit [for 4.5s] . Aphelios can right-click marked enemies anywhere on the map to follow up with a basic attack from his off-hand weapon (or his non-Calibrum weapon, in cases where he swaps Calibrum to his off-hand before firing). This attack detonates other nearby marks for bonus damage [20/25/30/35/40 at 1/3/5/7/9 (+40% bAD)] against the marked targets. 

Calibrum Q: Moonshot 
9/8.25/7.5/6.75/6s Cooldown at 1/3/5/7/9
60 Mana
10 Ammo
Fire a skillshot that damages the first unit hit for [60/85/110/135/160 at 1/3/5/7/9 (+60% bAD)(+100% AP)] and marks them. 
Moonlight Vigil Calibrum effect 
120/110/100s Cooldown at 6/11/16
100 Mana
Moonlight Vigil's follow-up attacks mark all enemies hit. [125/175/225 at 6/11/16 (+20% bAD)(+100% AP)] These marks deal higher damage when consumed [+20/45/70 damage per mark]. 
Severum, the Scythe Pistol 
Severum 
Severum is a sustain weapon that heals Aphelios for [8-25% based on level] of the damage it deals. Overhealing from Severum is converted into a small shield [10/20/30/40/50/60/70/80/90/100/110/120/130/140 at 1/6/7/8/9/10/11/12/13/14/15/16/17/18 (+6% health)]. [Persists for 30 seconds]

Severum Q: Onslaught 
10/9/8s Cooldown 1/5/9
60 Mana
10 Ammo 
Gain [20% (+10% AP)] movement speed and rapidly fire your main-hand and off-hand weapons at the nearest enemy for 1.75s, prioritizing champions. Onslaught shots behave like basic attacks but deal reduced damage [60/90/120/150/180 (+90% bonus attack speed as damage) over 6 (+1 shot per 30% bonus attack speed) shots].
Moonlight Vigil Severum effect 
Moonlight Vigil grants Aphelios a flat heal. [200/300/400 at 6/11/16]
Gravitum, the Cannon
Gravitum
Gravitum is a utility weapon that applies a [30% slow, decaying over 3.5s].
Gravitum Q: Eclipse 
12/11.5/11/10.5/10s Cooldown at 1/3/5/7/9
60 Mana
10 Ammo 
Damage [50/65/80/95/110 (+35% bAD)(+70% AP)] and root all enemies [for 1s] on the map affected by Gravitum's slow. Eclipse doesn't use Aphelios' off-hand weapon. 
Moonlight Vigil Gravitum effect 
Moonlight Vigil's follow-up attacks apply a massively increased slow [increased to 99%]. 
Infernum, the Flamethrower
Infernum 
Infernum is an AoE/waveclear weapon. It deals increased basic attack and ability damage [110% Damage] and creates a damage cone behind enemies hit [75/100% at levels 1/9 (34/45% for minions at levels 1/9)]. 
Infernum Q: Duskwave 
9/8/7/6s Cooldown at 1/3/7/9
60 Mana
10 Ammo 
Spout a wave of flame, damaging enemies for [25/35/45/55/65 at 1/3/5/7/9 (+80% bAD)(+70% AP)]. Then basic attack all enemies hit with your off-hand weapon. 
Moonlight Vigil Infernum effect 
Moonlight Vigil's follow-up attacks create damage circles around enemies hit instead of damage cones behind them [Initial explosion deals +50/100/150 at 6/11/16 (+40% bAD)]. 
Crescendum, the Chakram
Crescendum 
Crescendum is a close-range DPS weapon that behaves like a boomerang. Once Aphelios basic attacks with Crescendum he can't attack again until it returns to him, but his attack resets when it does. [Bounce return speed 600 (+750% of bonus Attack Speed)] Attack speed increases Crescendum's travel speed instead. The closer Aphelios is to his target, the less distance Crescendum has to travel—and the faster Aphelios can attack. 
When abilities or their follow-up attacks deal damage with Crescendum, they create temporary copies of it [5s duration] for each enemy hit that increase the strength of Crescendum's basic attack. 
[Bonus Damage starts at 30% total AD and diminishes with subsequent temporary Chakram hit (Min 5% Total AD damage)]
Crescendum Q: Sentry 
9/8.25/7.5/6.75/6s Cooldown at 1/3/5/7/9
60 Mana
10 Ammo
Deploy a turret [20s duration] that shoots the nearest target with your off-hand weapon [25/40/55/70/85 at 1/3/5/7/9 (+50% bAD)(+50% AP) over 4s]. 
Moonlight Vigil Crescendum effect 
If Moonlight Vigil hits fewer than three enemies, its follow up attacks still increase the damage of Crescendum's basic attacks as if at least three enemies were hit. 
Custom HUD 
All the stuff above is a lot to take in, and a lot to track. Aphelios has a unique HUD to ease this burden. 
  • Passive, explaining Aphelios' weapons and level ups. The tooltip is as long as this article.
  • Aphelios' main-hand weapon and its remaining ammo.
  • Q.
  • Aphelios' off-hand weapon and its remaining ammo. If its Q is on cooldown, the icon will also indicate remaining cooldown.
  • The next weapon you'll get once one of your weapons runs out of ammo.
  • R. 
Additionally, if your main-hand gun has 10 or less ammo remaining, an ammo tracker will appear on the right side of your screen so you can track your remaining shots."

Lore

Aphelios already has a champion page on the Universe! Check it out for his full biography!

Client Bio:
"Emerging from moonlight's shadow with weapons drawn, Aphelios kills the enemies of his faith in brooding silence—speaking only through the certainty of his aim, and the firing of each gun. Though fueled by a poison that renders him mute, he is guided by his sister Alune. From her distant temple sanctuary, she pushes an arsenal of moonstone weapons into his hands. For as long as the moon shines overhead, Aphelios will never be alone."

Lux VFX Update 

Here's Riot Sirhaian with details on a Lux VFX update coming to testing on the PBE:
"Hello everyone! 
Similar to the previous VFX updates we’ve made in the past (Ziggs, Olaf, Tryndamere, etc), we're working on updates to the Visual Effects (VFX) of more champions whose spell effects are in need of some love. Our aim is to get their FX to current League standards and improve gameplay clarity. In Patch 9.24, we'll be releasing a VFX Update for Lux! 
Just like the previous ones, and since these are smaller updates geared toward sprucing up some of the oldest members of the roster, they aren't in the same prioritization conversation as to how we decide who gets a VGU (where we take model, gameplay, and thematic into account too!): they do not affect any other timeline, and are simply dev passion projects. 
We're looking for feedback on her changes, which should be up on the PBE soon. Please try her out there —especially if you're a main— and leave us your feedback once the changes are up! 
LUX 
VFX Update aimed at improving gameplay readability and bringing up her VFXs to today's standards. Also, more rainbows.

Base Kit:
  • BA - Cleaned up missile and impact.
  • Q - Added a subtle effect to show the width of the missile. Also more sparkly and rainbowy!
  • W - Mostly just a clean-up. Added a subtle missile width indicator on missile going out.
  • E - Revamped and cleaned up charge and explosion effects. Missile still similar.
  • R - Effect has been completely overhauled. Now has indicator lines on both sides to show the actual width of the beam. Also has a line at the end to show the actual range of it (it was kind of really off before, ahem).
  • P - Just cleaned up a bit.
  • Idle Effects - Cleaned up and improved idle staff effects.
Skin changes:
  • All Skins: Cleaned up and matched base.
  • Steel Legion Lux: Cleaned up lightning effects on Q missile, E explosion and R beam. 
All the most recent skins changes are very minor. 
Please test those changes on the PBE once she's up and let us know if you have any feedback!"

Diana changes on PBE 

Here's Squad5 with details on Diana changes testing on the PBE this cycle:
"Hey all, we’ve got some Diana changes headed to PBE including Gameplay changes, new Visual Effects, and Sound Effects - we wanted to put up a post detailing what you’re going to see, and give some context for the major gameplay changes. 
Updated Visual Effects - similar to the VFX updates we’ve done to a number of our older champions, all of Diana’s VFX are getting at least a touch up, including new VFX for her ultimate, and better visuals on her passive. 
Updated Sound Effects - again, similar to the SFX updates we’ve done, all of her SFX are getting touched up at least, notably her shield and dashes should be a lot more noticeable, as well as all new SFX for her ultimate and her passive. 
We’ve got some gameplay changes aimed at helping Diana’s pre 6 lane, and making both the playing as and against experience of Diana less feast or famine. 
The first gameplay change I’ll talk about is the biggest one - we’re switching Diana’s current E (Moonfall) and R (Lunar Rush) abilities and making changes to them to respect their new roles on the kit. 
Here are the tooltips for the two abilities (bonus new icons!): 
Lunar Rush should be familiar, functionally the same as her old ultimate with its changes being primarily tuning based. The Moonfall changes add a new, ultimate level source of damage onto Diana’s kit that she can use for solo assassinations or go for the big play of getting a massive teamfight winning vacuum. 
Having access to Lunar Rush early should give Diana more agency in lane to maneuver, and give her more options than simply trying to survive until level level 6. Or in the case of jungle Diana, make her clear and ganking patterns stronger. 
New Moonfall gives Diana a new tuning lever to hopefully make her more enjoyable to play both as and against. One of the core problems Diana currently has is a lack of variance when she attacks her enemies. She trains them down with multiple dashes and if she’s winning she likely kills them without much recourse, but if she’s losing she likely can’t dish out enough damage and simply loses the fight. With the addition of a bigger moment to play around, opponents can attempt to get out of Moonfall’s detonation, while Diana can look for a big multi-opponent cast to pull out extra damage. 
This swap should overall help both the laning and later game concerns that Diana players have, and hopefully also reduce some of the frustration that her opponents feel.
The second change is one that will probably be of more interest to more invested Diana players - changes to the way her passive works. 
Here’s the new tooltip (level 1 value): 
Here are the mechanical differences from her current passive:
  • Decoupled Attack Speed from Moonfall’s rank (now scales with character level)
  • Always grants a baseline Attack Speed bonus rather than only after spell casts
  • Spell casts now increase the bonus
  • Passive cleave no longer grants mana
Diana’s passive had a lot of rules and mechanics that were put in for specific reasons to tune her lane or her jungle respectively, and after taking a look at them we decided that we could afford to clean them up and simplify the passive back down while instead making adjustments to her base stats and mana costs to make her feel better overall. 
This passive version should hopefully be a nice throwback to her original passive while still maintaining the spell weaving gameplay of her current passive. 
There’s a lot more tuning that I haven’t mentioned, and more to be done on PBE with the feedback we get, but I look forward to everyone getting to take a look at our favorite moon aspect’s new changes."
Here's a closer look at Diana's new ability icons:

Night & Dawn Poro King coming in 9.24!

Here's Riot Popc0rner with details on the return of Poro King in 9.24:
"Hi folks! For the Night & Dawn event at the end of this year, we're bringing the regal and time-honored Poro King back from his vacation on the shores of the fabled Ursine Lands and returning him to the Howling Abyss, where he'll lead you to glorious victory! 
As always, you summon the Poro King by flinging poros, snowball-style, until you've hit ten enemy champions. The King will help you push enemy towers and periodically heal you, and you can use the To The King! spell to return to his side at any time. 
To celebrate the Night and Dawn event, you now have access to two all-new Poro Snax:
Dawnbringer Snax: The king will summon the blade of Dawnbringer Riven to hurl you into the heart of battle when you feed him these celestial treats. 
Nightbringer Snax: The king will channel the dark winds of Nightbringer Yasuo to disrupt and disorient your foes after consuming this bitter morsel. 
We've also done some quality-of-life improvements:
  • - Poro King now uses the same random-champion-select process as ARAM
  • - We've made it easier to keep track of your progress toward summoning the King with new UI
  • - All the ARAM-specific champion, item, and rune changes have been brought to Poro King
And, of course, equipping certain poro icons will still change your poro followers into extra special poros!
Poro King is going up on PBE now, so be sure to give it a try and let us know what you think. 
We'll have more news about future modes coming early next year, so stay tuned. Until then, may your poros fly true, and may the favor of the King shine down upon you!

Wukong Update- Progress Report!

Here's Riot Lutzburg with a progress report on Wukong changes coming to the PBE soon:
"Hi everyone, 
I wanted to give you all an update on the status of the Wukong changes we've been working on for the last few weeks. When we last spoke about it, the team and I were beginning to dive into the existing work we had started earlier in the year. We regrouped and defined a few key goals for what we wanted to accomplish with these changes, based on the feedback we got from Wukong players. Those goals are: 
  1. Give Wukong more tools and agency to make proactive plays during the laning phase
  2. Provide Wukong with quality-of-life improvements where possible
  3. Shift Wukong's power curve towards early game instead of late game 
Wukong has a very sharp win rate percentage based on game time, getting as low as 42% before Baron spawns to as high as 58% once the game has gone on for 35+ minutes. These changes should help smooth out that curve, so that Wukong feels competitive in the early game without dominating team fights with his innate tankiness and high burst damage. 
For the quality-of-life improvements, I did my best to listen to the fans and focus on the areas you cited as most frustrating- high mana costs and low Passive/R satisfaction. In addition to these upgrades, Wukong is gaining extremely powerful new tools in the form of a free-target dash, more convincing clone deception, and a physical damage shield
Here is the change list we're currently working on. Note that these changes are relative to THE LIVE GAME; not the last version you saw on the PBE or on our forums. 
P- Stone Skin:
  • REMOVED- Wukong no longer gains resistances for nearby enemy Champions
  • NEW- Whenever Wukong is invisible to the enemy team for at least 1 second, he gains a temporary physical damage shield based on his maximum health. After being spotted, the shield disperses after a few seconds
We've been experimenting with a new Passive that grants Wukong a temporary physical damage shield. The idea here is to increase Wukong's lane power and outplay potential while reducing his innate tankiness in team fights. We've been trying a handful of different versions, but here's the most recent. Note that it might change! 
We see this as a tool to reward extended trading patterns, incentivizing Wukong to dip in and out of brushes and use W as a re-engage tool rather than just an escape tool. We're hoping this manifests in some cool top lane brush out-plays! 
Q- Wuju Strike:
  • Mana cost lowered to a flat 30 from 40
  • CD reduced by 1 sec at all ranks
  • NEW- Spell's cost is refunded if it kills a unit
W- Warrior Trickster:
  • Now instantly dashes towards the player's cursor instead of a short range blink
  • Dash is 350 range and 1200 speed. Can NOT go over walls
  • Clone is now treated as a stationary Champion and will attack nearby enemies, prioritizing the last enemy Wukong damaged
  • Clone's attacks deal a scaling 50-100% of Wukong's AD based on spell rank and apply on-hit effects
  • Clone looks identical to Wukong's animation state on spawn, and animates as if he pressed the "S" key
E- Nimbus Strike:
  • Tertiary target range check increased significantly
  • Now deals magic damage instead of physical
R- Cyclone:
  • Tick rate increased to every .25 sec from .5 (damage halved to compensate)
  • Damage ratio increased to 1.25 AD/sec from 1.1
  • Bonus movement speed is now a flat 30% instead of ramping up 5-40% over the duration
  • E's attack speed buff now pauses while R is active
  • Wukong can now cancel R early by casting another ability or recasting R
Hoping these buffs make it more attractive to channel Cyclone for the full duration, rather than always canceling it after the knock-up. 
We're aiming to push these changes to the PBE sometime in December. Based on your feedback, outstanding bugs and a general balance pass, we aren't able to provide an exact release date just yet. We're still exploring some experimental mechanics outside of the update's original scope, which takes extra time we didn't initially account for. I understand this news will frustrate some of you, but I hope this list proves that we're committed to meaningfully improving Wukong's play experience. 
Thank you for your patience, 
-Lutzburg

TFT Update: Soulbound Class 

Here's Riot Jag and Beernana with details on a new TFT Class and champions:
"Senna and Lucian enter Teamfight Tactics together, bound beyond life and death. As Soulbound, these two damage dealing carries fight past their own mortal limits as long as the other is still alive. 
Here's how they work: 
Soulbound
  • (2) The first Soulbound unit to die in a round will instead enter the Spirit Realm, becoming untargetable and continuing to fight as long as another Soulbound unit is alive. 
Senna
  • Cost: 2
  • Origin: Shadow
  • Class: Soulbound
  • Ability: Piercing Darkness
    • Senna fires a beam through her furthest ally, dealing 50/100/150 magic damage to enemies, and buffing allies' on-hits for 5 seconds to deal 25/45/65 magic damage from Senna. 
Senna is a back-line unit that focuses on buffing allies as well as dealing damage. Her ability Piercing Darkness infuses any friendly in the beam with bonus on-hit magic damage applied from Senna, allowing her Shadow trait to benefit from many more takedowns in a combat. 
Lucian
  • Cost: 4
  • Origin: Light
  • Class: Soulbound
  • Ability: The Culling
    • Lucian fires at 4 times his normal Attacks Per Second in a direction for 4 seconds, each attacking for 20/30/50% of his AD, applying on-hits, and dealing 30/40/50 magic damage. 
Lucian is the new carry for the Light trait and is especially adept at single-target DPS. His ability Culling synergizes very well with damage modifiers like Piercing Darkness and applies on-hit effects. 
Oh, and we almost forgot about Amumu
  • Cost: 5
  • Origin: Inferno
  • Class: Warden
  • Ability: Curse of the Sad Mummy
    • Amumu’s rage explodes, dealing 250/500/1337 magic damage to enemies within 2/3/4 Hexes, and stunning them for 1.5 seconds. 
Inferno at the 6-piece level has been a bit underwhelming. Specifically, it lacks the utility to compete with other all-in compositions (Light, for example). Enter Amumu - he’s here to be the tanky frontline for all of your Infernal needs. He roots enemies in Inferno Hexes and is generally an adorably cute, but often lonely, force of raw destruction."
Riot Mort added:
"Two small bits of info:  
1.) With the release of Lucian/Senna, Shadow is swapping to a 3/6 model instead of 2/4. Currently its (+70%/+140%)
2.) Inferno is getting some big changes. It now also procs on Crits, and 6/9 cause more hexes on fire!"

  • Skin bios added:
    • Skin Lines added:
      • Nightbringer
      • Dawnbringer
      • Bloodstone
    • Bloodstone Lissandra: "Once a powerful sorceress who sought absolute control over her followers, Lissandra transformed into something altogether different when she finally found the hallowed Bloodstone. The magic she drew from it drove her to slay those who once tended to her every whim. To this day she wanders in search of more mortals to sacrifice to her newfound source of power."
    • Bloodstone Taric: "Considered to be the most handsome and cunning acolyte of his Bloodstone cult, Taric seized power after the former leader took to the hunt. Now fully in control of his Bloodstone artifact, he uses his powers to maintain his youth and beauty at all costs-- even if it means getting his hands a little bloody."
    • Blood Lord Vladimir: "Former leader of a Bloodstone cult, Vladimir took part in a ritual that sacrificed his humanity-- along with the blood of several victims-- to transform the once foppish noble into a terror of the night. To satiate his sanguine cravings, he stalks the urban labyrinth in search of hapless prey."
    • Blood Knight Hecarim: "A zealous sycophant to his order, Hecarim unquestioningly serves the will of the Bloodstone. While less subtle than his masters would like, he is nonetheless effective in his purpose of executing enemies in a grisly fashion."
    • Bloodfury Renekton: "This blood-crazed killing machine scours the battlefield to sate the Bloodstone. The more he slays, the more he fuels his powers. This in turn feeds his frenzy, creating a never ending cycle of spilt viscera and gore."
    • Pirate Ryze: "In another world and time, when the stress of preventing another Rune War was just too much, Ryze left behind his previous life to terrorize the high seas of Runeterra! With his trusty cannon on his back, and magic coursing through his veins like gold through his fingers, Pirate Ryze warps from ship to ship and coast to coast, taking what he will."
    • Bilgewater Katarina: "To outsiders, the politics of Bilgewater seem a mean mess of villainous scum and dishonorable thieves. But woven throughout are complex loyalties, solemn codes of honor, and a very specific (if bloody) way of doing things. Cutting through it all is Katarina, a master of the blade. She silences the right tongues at all the right moments... for the right price."
    • Kingpin Twitch: "Many in Bilgewater get called a filthy rat, but none deserve the title more than the Kingpin himself. While other crime bosses in the port city may loathe to get their hands dirty, Twitch revels in wading into the filth himself-- crossbow in hand, and a finely aged egg in his pocket."
    • Bilgerat Rumble: "When the burdens of invention weigh too heavy on a young yordle's shoulders, there's no better choice than to take to the seas! Nothing like plunderin' and maraudin' to lend Rumble a new lease on life as he terrorizes the coasts."
    • Buccaneer Tristana: "Gunners ahoy! Tristana leaps onto the high seas, sailing for new adventures beyond the Bandle borders. The hat's borrowed (stolen) from a pirate she blasted, and the eyepatch is purely for show. But her take-no-prisoner attitude and trusty cannon gun have sunk more ships than most captains in Bilgewater."
