PBE Round-up: Everything you will see in Patch 4.13

July 29th, 2014

 

PBE Roundup Patch 4 point 13 Banner

 

Hey everyone,

This is an experimental news feature where I wrap up all the PBE updates following a Patch cycle. This lets you know what will be in the next patch before it hits and lets me use my format for patch notes instead of Riot’s. I’ll also post banners to threads with context to those changes where I can. As a side note, I’ll do these roundups a few days earlier, this one was just a spur-the-moment decision and so will come out only several hours before the patch hits.

 

Don’t know when Patch 4.13 hits? Here’s the schedule for every region!

PBE Champion Changes

  • Slow field strength reduced from 60% at all ranks to 40/50/60%
  • Slow duration of ice field decreased from 1.5 seconds to 0.3

Clarity on Elise range nerfs

Pwyff New PortraitQuick thing on the Elise changes: they’ve also been modified to judge distance from edge of hitbox to edge. The TLDR is that some abilities judge distance from the center of the ch
ampion (like dead center) and then draw a straight line to the dead center of their target. That’s center-to-center distance.

Hitbox to hitbox takes into account champion size (average is like… 65 units? 60 units?) as it goes right from the edge of the champ hitbox. Basic attack ranges us edge to edge distance.

So while these range changes seem significant for Elise (they’re still significant, don’t me wrong), there’s accounting for roughly ~100 units that are being added onto this as a result of shifting from center-to-center to edge-to-edge. If it’s a Cho’gath it’s sort of a weird buff (at least for Q).

Context (Bugfix, Buffs to Compensate)

 

Riot Jag New PortraitHey guys, just wanted to let you know that we put out a bugfix on PBE for Vayne where her Tumble had a higher bonus AD ratio while she had Final Hour active. Since we wanted to fix the bug without actually reducing the power of the champion, we compensated by increasing the bonus AD she gets for Ulting, making this mostly a power-neutral change, not a buff or nerf.

As an aside, she’s getting some small AS per level buffs. Nothing huge, but a few more Silver Bolts procs never hurt anyone.
