The PBE has been updated! Along with new icons and tentative balance changes, we also have a set of "New Player Landing Page Assets", new particles for Face of the Mountain's active & the Spoils of War passive, and an update to Popstar Ahri's R indicator.


Continue reading for a look at the latest the PBE has to offer.


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


New Icons


Nomad's Medallion and Frostfang have new icons. Yummy.



New Player Landing Page Assets

There are a couple of new images tucked away in a new file from a PREVIOUS PATCH. You may have seen these pop up in yesterday's comment section and they are indeed there. They are aimed at helping new players and are likely a work in progress as it doesn't seem normally accessable.







Face of the Mountain Shield & Spoils of War Particles
Face of the Mountain has a new particle for its shield. It starts as green and moves to orange as it explodes.





Additionally, the Spoils of War passive now has green orb particles instead of the coins floating in a bubble.



Two charges for Relic Shield



Face of the Mountain has four charges so there are four floating green orbs.


Popstar Ahri R Indicator
In a previous PBE patch, Ahri received a new indicator to show when she has charges of her R left and now Popstar Ahri has a pink version of that.




Mastery Wipe Prompt
If you log on the PBE this update, you'll notice a prompt saying your masteries have been reset but they haven't actually been wiped.


Here's Pwyff with more info:


"Quick update for everyone - we're testing a mastery prompt on the PBE that tells you your masteries have been wiped but... IT WILL NOT DO SO. On live it will function as it says, but we're just testing some things on PBE. THANKS!"


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!
