The PBE Has been updated with several new goodies!

The PBE Has been updated with several new goodies! Nasus has received an update to his base splash art and the eye color of his in game model, several new icons have been added, an update to Ahri's R indicator, and there is a new mess of tentative balance changes and tooltip updates.

(Warning: PBE Content is tentative and iterative - what you see may not reflect what eventually gets pushed to live servers! Manage your expectations accordingly. )


Updated Nasus Splash Art


Nasus has had his base splash art updated to better reflect his in-game model. You'll notice he is much less feral looking ( and looks significantly less like Warwick. )


To match this, Nasus' eyes are now blue instead of red.







New Item Icons


New icons for Taisman of Ascension, Youmuu's, Ancient Coin, and Wooglet's



New Smite Icon



Mastery Icon's filled out


Seems the new masteries have been filled out with the new icons instead of the missing ones having shields.



Ahri R particle


The indicator that pops up around Ahri's feet when she still has charges of her R left has been updated




Sweeping Lens Cast Range


Sweeping Lens now has a small cast range instead of only being able to be cast right on top of your character.




Here's sweeping len's new cast range


Sweeping Lens on the Left and Greater Lens on the right.


Balance Changes
* Remember *: The PBE is a testing grounds for new and sometimes radical changes. The changes you see below may be lacking context or other accompanying changes that didn't make it in - don't freak out!
