Maokai Visual Update

Ququroon Final PortraitBranching out to the PBE is Maokai, the Twisted Treant!

Having gone through a growth spurt, Maokai now looks and feels more like the character he was meant to be. With an updated model and texture set, crisp new visual effects, new sounds to crush your enemies with and more, this plant come to life now feels more alive than ever. As usual, all of the above affects his skins as well.

One of the other major goals on this project was to increase visual clarity for Maokai, his allies and his enemies. His ultimate is massively powerful, but was it ever really the most noticeable? Did his snare ever really feel as effective as it actually is? Could his saplings be even more awesome? We pushed these a bit, so hopefully you’ll be able to feel the effects!

We’d really appreciate it if you’d take a look at Maokai, and hit 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.

Between the update to Summoner’s Rift and now this, it certainly is a great time for our trees.

Updated Maokai Lore

Maokai has received heaps of new lore and his old lore has been replaced.

 

Maokai was once a peaceful nature spirit dwelling in an idyllic forest, but the arrogance of humans brought an end to that life. Now he is a gnarled shadow of his former self, twisted by dark magics that defied the natural order of life and death. Infused with power he never asked for, the mighty treant has become a vengeful force of nature, sundering his enemies with wild magic and iron-hard limbs as he searches Valoran for the means to restore the Shadow Isles to its former glory.

Before the Shadow Isles became a land of death,the islands teemed with natural life and beauty.This was never truer than in the isles’ sacred forest: a paradise of thriving trees and countless species, both animal and spirit alike. When the king of the Shadow Islesordered his sorcerers to crack open the barrier separating life and death, the forest served as a well of power the magi drank deeply from.

The sorcerers’ ritual succeeded in corrupting the cycle of life and unleashing forces they could not hope to contain.Vitality seeped from every living thing in the Shadow Isles: great trees withered into gnarled husks, people warped into twisted shades, and forest spirits became hollow wisps. Maokai, the strongest spirit of the sacred forest, watched in horror as his world crumbled and died around him. He fought to mend the wound in the world, but could not halt the destruction wrought by human folly. As the ghastly energies sought to overwhelm the great spirit, he made one last desperate attempt to preserve the life of the land. Maokai inhabited the ancient oak at the heart of the forest’s spiritual power. There he gathered the essence of the isles into the tree as the corruption of undeath clawed hungrily at anything within reach. Fortified by boundless magic, Maokai could not be consumed entirely,though the spirit was not left unscathed.

Maokai, now saturated with the essences of life and death, became fused with the ancient oak and contorted into an abomination. Forages, pain and grief were the only companions the spirit had. His boughs grew heavy as he wept at the desolation of everything he had known and loved, and his roots tore from the earth as he raged at the reckless sorcerers that had ruined his home. But all was not lost.Maokai had preserved the last vital spark remaining in the Shadow Isles, and with it, the hope of returning life to the land.

Like moths to a flame, the tormented shades ofthe Shadow Isles were drawn to the living essence within Maokai. The spirit guarded theseed of life from the relentless undead, but Maokai knew he could not fend them off forever. He needed to escape the land of death his home had become, so he cast himself into the sea and trusted in nature to guide him towards a living land. There he hoped to find the means to cast out the forces of undeath and restore life to the Shadow Isles.

Maokai – ”To defy the natural order has consequences.”

Experimental Soraka Changes

 

Vesh New PortraitHey guys,

Going to be testing out an buffed W range for Soraka as well as a fixed travel time cast paradigm for Q (like Nami bubble instead of Twitch Cask).

The first version up today is probably a bit too fast, and I will probably be iterating through a number of values to find the one that feels juuuust right.

Anyway, would love feedback about how these changes feel and the playing-against feedback is especially vital. Leave any feedback you have here and I promise I’ll be reading all of it ^_^

[ Note ] I don’t think these changes are in this PBE update. Will double-check.
