Ahri’s splash art has been updated to a version of her removed splash. A few tweaks have been made, most notably to her face.

Extended Amumu Lore

Amumu’s received a heap of additional backstory!

 

Greed and Tears

“The gods were angry, and shook the land. Cracks rent the earth,” said old Khaldun, his crag-featured face lit by firelight. “It was into one of these fissures that a young man ventured. He found an opening; the entrance to a tomb, hidden for the Jackal knows how long. The man had little ones to feed and a wife to please, and so he ventured in, lured by opportunity.”

Adults and children alike crowded in close to hear the old storyteller’s words. They were all weary – they had traveled far that day, and the Shuriman sun had been unrelenting – but Khaldun’s tales were a rare treat. They drew their cloaks tight around their shoulders against the chill of the night and leaned in.

“The air was cool in the tomb, a merciful relief from the scorching heat outside. The young man lit a torch. Its light made shadows dance before him. He stepped cautiously, wary of traps. He was poor, but he was no fool.

“The walls inside were smooth obsidian and carved with ancient writings and images. He could not read – he was a simple man – but he studied the images.

“He saw a boy prince, sitting cross-legged upon a sun disk borne by a team of servants, a beaming smile upon his face. Chests of coins and riches were piled before him, the offerings of strangely garbed, bowing emissaries.

“He saw other carvings, again showing the smiling prince, this time walking among his people. Their heads were pressed to the ground before him. Stylized rays of sunshine radiated from the boy’s crown.

“Before one of these images was a small, gold statue. It alone was worth more than he could have hoped to earn in ten lifetimes. The young man took it, slipping it into his satchel.

“He did not intend to linger. He knew it would not be long before others came upon this place. When they did, he wanted to be gone. Greed makes fools of even the greatest men, and he knew that others would willingly spill his blood to claim that golden statue – and the other riches that were surely further in. Avarice was not one of the young man’s faults, however. He felt no need to delve further. The other treasures hidden here were someone else’s to claim.

“He looked upon one last image before he left the tomb. It showed the boy prince dead, lying upon a bier. Those closest to him were wailing… but further back, people were celebrating. Had the boy prince been beloved, or had he been a tyrant? There was no way of knowing.

“That was when he heard it: a sound in the darkness that made his skin crawl.

“He looked around, wide eyed, holding his torch up before him. Nothing.

“‘Who’s there?’ he said. Silence was his only answer.

“The young man shook his head. ‘It is just the wind, you fool,’ he thought. ‘Nothing but the wind.’

“Then he heard it again, more distinctly this time. A child was crying in the darkness further into the tomb.

“Heard anywhere else, his paternal instinct would have been to go to the sound. But here, in the darkness of a funereal tomb?

“He wanted to run… but he did not. The sobbing touched his heart. It was filled with such misery and grief.

“Was it possible there was another entrance to this tomb? Had a young boy found his way down here and become lost?

“Torch held high, he crept forward. The weeping continued, echoing faintly through the gloom.

“A wide chamber opened before him, its floor black and highly reflective. Golden artifacts and jewel-inlaid walls glinted within. Gingerly, he entered the room.

“He stepped back sharply as his heel sent ripples spreading out across the floor. Water. The floor was not made of reflective obsidian – it was covered in water.

“Kneeling, he scooped a handful of it to his lips. He spat it out immediately. It was salt water! Here, in the heart of Shurima, a thousand leagues from the nearest sea!

“He heard the sound of the boy weeping once more, closer now.

“Holding his torch before him, the young man glimpsed a shape at the edge of its light. It appeared to be the child, sitting with his back to the man.

“Carefully, he stepped into the room. The water upon the floor was not deep. The hairs on the back of his neck stood on end, and fear clutched at his chest, yet he did not turn to run.

“‘Are you lost?’ he asked, as he stepped closer. ‘How did you get here?’

“The shadowed figure did not turn… but he did speak.

“‘I… I don’t remember,’ he said. The sound swam around the young man, echoing off the walls. The boy spoke in an old dialect. His words were strange… but understandable. ‘I don’t remember who I am.’

“‘Be calm, child,’ said the man. ‘All will be well.’

“He stepped closer, and the figure resolved itself before him. His eyes widened.

“The shape before him was a god-statue carved in onyx, nothing more. It was not the source of the crying, nor of the child’s voice.

“That was when a small, dry hand grabbed him.”

The youngest of the listeners gasped, his eyes wide. The other children laughed in false bravado. Old Khaldun smiled, a golden tooth glinting in the firelight. Then, he continued.

“The young man looked down. The linen-wrapped corpse of the tiny prince stood beside the man. Dull, ghostly light emanated from the deathly boy’s eye sockets, though his entire face was bound in burial wrappings. The corpse-child held the man’s hand.

“‘Will you be my friend?’ the boy asked, his voice muffled by linen.

“The young man lurched backward, breaking free of the child’s grasp. The young man looked down at his arm in horror; his hand was shriveling, turning black and withered. The wasting touch then began to climb up his arm.

“He turned and ran. In his shock and haste, he dropped his lantern. It hissed as it fell into the lake of tears, and darkness descended. Still, he could just make out the glow of daylight up ahead. He ran toward it, scrambling desperately, even as the wasting death crept up his arm towards his heart.

“At any moment, he expected to feel the deathly boy’s grasp upon him… but did not. After what felt like an eternity, but could only have been a matter of heartbeats, he burst from the darkness into the desert heat once more.

“‘I’m sorry,’ echoed a mournful voice from the gloom behind him. ‘I didn’t mean to.’

“And thus, the Tomb of Amumu was unearthed,” said old Khaldun, “and the deathly child released into the world.”

“But everyone knows he isn’t real!” cried one of the children, the oldest of them, after a moment of silence.

“Amumu is real!” said the youngest. “He’s wandering the land trying to find a friend!”

“He’s real, but he isn’t a boy,” said another. “He’s a yordle!”

Khaldun laughed, and pushed himself to his feet with the aid of a gnarled walking stick.

“I am old, and we have far to travel tomorrow,” he said. “It is past time I was abed.”

His audience began to dissipate, smiling and talking in low, familial voices, but one child did not move. She stared at Khaldun, unblinking.

“Grandfather,” she said. “How did you lose your arm?”

Old Khaldun looked down at the empty sleeve pinned at his shoulder, then flashed the girl a grin.

“Goodnight, little one,” he said with a wink.”

The new base exits that were introduced in a recent PBE update now have rune symbols on them. No mechanical change, this is just a visual update. Also, these runes aren’t present on red side, so I assume there’ll be different models for those.

A few miscellaneous files have been added for DJ Sona, but they’re not attached to anything I can test in-game.

[ Assumption ] This will most likely be this year’s ultimate skin and files for it are being patched onto the PBE in preparation. There will be a teaser for sure before DJ Sona is made available on the PBE, so stay tuned for that. There’s a chance it might be a legendary skin, but there are a lot of audio files added (including dubstep) so that level of features suggests an ultimate skin.

 

 

 

Two new exits have been added to both bases on Summoner’s Rift.


 

A team can’t use the enemy’s base exits. If you try to enter the enemy’s base through these, they’ll act as standard walls.


 

Here’s a clarification tweet from Software Engineer for Riot Reina Sweet:

Ququroon Final PortraitMove aside and witness Alistar, the Minotaur, in his new and updated form!

Known for his ability to change the shape of a teamfight, you can now spot this cow trampling in with his shape changing form! It’s behoove of me to tell you what you can expect to see, so read up if you find yourself locking horns with the bull at any point! His model and textures are all sparkly and brand new, and his animations are tweaked a bit to make him run and look better on the fields. In addition, we’ve also given his ult a spitshine, so you’ll see some nice shields here instead of… uh… spiky… things. His skins are receiving the same treatment as well, so be sure not to miss those as well*.

Some questions to keep in mind as you take a look at the new models!

  • Does this still read as Alistar to you?
  • Does the new Unbreakable Will still communicate the effect?
  • Do you feel anything important to you was missed during this update?

We’d really appreciate it if you’d take a look at Alistar, and headbutt us with any bugs and feedback that come your way. Your feedback helps to guide changes we can make, as well as helps us grow as a team.

*Sweeper Alistar was fairly recent, so it did not receive larger updates.

It’s a new season, which means all kinds of new beginnings – learning a new role or champion, playing with new teams, learning all of the changes.

It also means bettering yourself as a player – Improve your skills, excel in your main role, rank up higher than you ever have before.

Client Lore

“The largest and fiercest of her species, Rek’Sai is a merciless predator that tunnels through the earth to ambush and devour her prey. Her insatiable hunger has laid waste to entire regions of the once-great Shuriman empire. Merchants, traders and armed caravans will go hundreds of miles out of their way to avoid these vast areas, though cunning bandits have been known to lure the unwary into her killing grounds. Once Rek’Sai detects you, your fate is sealed. There is no hope of escape; she is death from below the sand.”

 

Fury of the Xer'Sai Final IconFury of the Xer’Sai [ Passive ]

Dealing damage while unburrowed generates Fury. Burrowing consumes Fury over 5 seconds to restore up to X health. During this time, Rek’Sai’s next attack that generates Fury will grant 15 bonus Fury. White regenerating health, Rek’Sai’s next ability will also generate 15 additional Fury

Burrowed - Prey Seeker: Rek’Sai fires out a pulse of void energy in a straight line skillshot that detonates on the first enemy struck, dealing 60/90/120/150/180 (+1 AP) magic damage and revealing the target and all nearby enemies also hit by the missile’s explosion for 2.5 seconds.

 



 

Burrow Unburrow Final IconBurrow/Unburrow [ W ]

Cooldown: 4 seconds || Range: 1650

Unburrowed - Burrow: Rek’Sai burrows underground, gaining Tremor Sense (a unique mechanic that shows Rek’Sai all enemy movement in a wide area around her) and increased movement speed at the expense of vision range and access to her basic attacks. She ignores unit collision as she moves around.

Burrowed - Unburrow: Rek’Sai bursts out into the open, knocking up nearby enemies for 1 second, based on their proximity to Rek’Sai, and dealing 60/110/160/210/260 ( + 0.5 Bonus AD) physical damage to them. A unit cannot be hit by Unburrow more than once every 10 seconds.

Burrowed Effects: New abilities, +15 Movement Speed, reduces vision range, disabled basic attacks, and gains Tremor Sense: Nearby enemies that move in the Fog of War have their position revealed to Rek’Sai and her allies.

New Summoner Icons


Here’s a Blood Moon icon to go along with the recently-introduced Blood Moon skins for Thresh and Elise:

Legend of the Poro King Game Mode

Celebrate the holidays with “Legend of the Poro King”, a custom mode played on the Howling Abyss. Here’s an overview of the new game mode:

 

Champion Select is Blind Draft pick – you can ban champions and you can’t see what the enemy has picked. You also can’t change your Summoner Spells; the following two are locked for you:

 

 
Poro Toss IconPoro Toss

No Cost || Cooldown: 20 Seconds

Active: Throw a Poro a long distance, dealing true damage to the first enemy unit hit. This ability can be recast for 3 seconds if it hits an enemy, to dash to the target hit. Dashing to the target will reduce the cooldown of Poro Toss by 5 seconds.

Poros are not blocked by spell shields or wind walls because they are animals, not spells!

“Poros are a model for Runeterran aerodynamics.”

 


To the King IconTo the King!

No Cost || Cooldown: 10 Seconds

Passive: Hitting an enemy champion with a Poro gives your team a Poro Mark. Upon reaching 10 Poro Marks, your team summons the Poro King to fight alongside them. While the Poro King is active, no Poro Marks can be scored by either team.

Active: Quickly dash to King Poro’s side. Can only be cast while the Poro King is summoned for your team.

“Poros tug the heartstrings. The rest of you just comes along for the ride.”

 

The match starts with everyone at level 3. You also get a few poros to follow you.

 

The goal is to score poro hits on enemies with your Poro Toss. The goals are displayed on the top-right score graph.

 


Get 10 goals and you summon the Poro King, who will tank towers and let you push. He’ll also occasionally throw poros around for lols.

 

Problem is, the Poro King does almost no damage and has the AI of a bronze player. As a result, he’s more of a tanky waypoint for you to teleport back to with To the King! and not a worthwhile objective.

 

A TL;DR would be: the new game mode is ARAM where you get to pick your champion and everyone gets a Lee Sin Q.

 

These five Summoner Icons each cost 250 RP in the store. They also change how the poros that follow you look.

profileIcon743 profileIcon744 profileIcon745 profileIcon746 profileIcon747 

 

These two are still a mystery, but I assume they’re rewards for playing the new game mode.

Merch Store Beta Banner

Riot’s recently-announced merchandise store is now up and running.

 


BY BRADMORE

We’re excited to announce the beta launch of the Riot Games Merch Store. Players have been asking for official merch for a while, and we wanted to make sure that we created an experience that felt authentic to the LoL universe. To do this, we spent the last year putting together our initial store and developing products that capture some of our favorite parts about League.

The store is still under development, and although it’s ready to go for beta, we are going to continue to work to level up the overall merch experience. Expect to see real-time changes during the beta as we evolve the site and merch catalog. Our primary focus is on learning, adapting, and evolving in order to ensure that we ultimately deliver a merch experience that raises the bar on awesome.  We’re excited to share the site and look forward to shaping the experience with you along the way.
