Hextech Annie crafting and gemstones

Riot Mirross Final PortraitHi all!

Everyone’s favorite combo of sugar, spice, nice, and plenty of burning is getting a new skin as part of hextech crafting and loot. In order to secure appropriate testing for Hextech Annie, we’re putting her and her hextechnically-augmented Tibbers on PBE early, but don’t expect her to debut with the launch of hextech crafting and loot.

Featuring an all-new model, textures, animations and particle effects as well as new sounds, Hextech Annie is intended to be available exclusively through hextech crafting and the loot system by acquiring 10 gemstones either in normal chests and promotional chests through rare drops or by picking up special promo chest bundles (which’ll guarantee a gemstone drop). Gemstones are rare loot drops that can be crafted into a chest and key bundle or saved to combine to craft Hextech Annie.

Promo chests will only be available at limited times and may have different content inside compared to normal chests. For testing on the PBE, we’ve unlocked Hextech Promo Chest bundles in the store so players can pick up Hextech Annie as soon as possible. During this test, buying one of the 10-chest bundles guarantees a gemstone in addition to the gemstones you can find in the chests themselves.

As we mentioned at the beginning, Hextech Annie won’t be available at the launch of hextech crafting and loot. We’ll test her on PBE before testing her release to live servers in Turkey (where we’ve been testing hextech crafting and loot for a little while now). When hextech crafting and loot debut on all live servers, Hextech Annie will follow shortly after.

Lastly, we’re pretty sure everyone’s used to this by now, but please keep in mind the promo chests have been heavily discounted for testing on PBE, and the drop rates of items in the chests may also change before we go live.

Leave your feedback on the skin or even the idea of a free, exclusive skin in hextech crafting below, and we’ll see you on the PBE battlefields!

Hextech Ward Banner

The Hextech Ward skin will (probably) be available for 640 RP.

 

Hextech Ward 2 Hextech Ward 1

 

 

HEXTECH CRAFTING Banner

This is a new in-client system that nets you rewards like skins and Champions. Below I’ve written down all the ways you can earn content and craft:

 

You’ll need Hextech Keys and Hextech Chests. You’ll earn Hextech Keys for winning matchmade games (meaning any game type except Custom games).

Chests are trickier; they’re rewards for performing well on a particular Champion. You earn chests through the Mastery system, but keep in mind that you can only earn one chest per season with a given Champion. Every time you get an S rank, you’ll get a chest, up to a maximum of four chests per month.

Alternatively, you can buy both keys and chests for 125 RP each in the store.

Crafting 1 Crafting 2

 

There are unique, RP-exclusive chests called “premium chests”. These contain more loot and can be bought in a bundle with a key for 195 RP. There’s also a separate opening animation for these that’s different from the one for default chests you get for S ranks:

Premium Chests

Premium Chest 1 Premium Chest 2

 

Once you have a pair, you can open chests using keys through the interface found by clicking on the shard icon below your username. After the animation, you’ll receive either a Champion Shard, a Skin Shard, a Ward Skin Shard, Cosmic Essence, Champion Essence or a combination of all those. Note that a chest will never contain essence only.

 

Think of Champion and Skin Shards as tickets for temporary access to Champions. You can do four things with those.

Crafting 4

 

First, you can re-roll both types of Shards into permanent Champions or Skins, respectively. To do so, you’ll need three Shards. The catch? Your reward is random.

 

You can disenchant both Champion Shards and Skin Shards for Champion Essence and Skins Essence, respectively.

Crafting 11 Crafting 12

 

You’ll need this essence to upgrade Champion Shards and Skin Shards into specific permanent Champions and Skins.

 

Lastly, you can rent Champions and Skins for 7 days. This will use up their respective Shards.

Crafting 13

 

The rent period will be displayed on your Summoner Profile. It’s also the place where you can check how many chests you can unlock until the end of the month and what Champions you’ve already unlocked a chest with.

Crafting 15

Crafting 14

 

Sometimes you’ll find Rare Gems in your chests. These contain one chest and one key.

Crafting 9 Crafting 10

 

You can earn Ward Skin Shards through these chests. These work the same way as regular Skin Shards.

Crafting 7 Crafting 8

 

You can also earn Summoner Icons. These will instantly be added to your account.

Crafting 5 Crafting 6

Nurse Flan Final PortraitElderwood Leblanc has been re-imagined as a trickster fairy! She’s a fancy magical forest dweller with a flower/butterly motif!
As a little aside, internally we call the little blue bird on her horn, Chuchu! haha

  • Completely new model (fairy!)
  • New particles for abilities! (petals and sparkles!)
  • New recall! (she flutters around!)
  • New audio for abilities and recall! (magical!)
  • Some new animations – her wings flutter for her W and R-W, plus her recall!
  • Set to be 1350RP* (pricing always subject to change)

As players who get the first look at this in-progress skin, it would be wonderful to hear your thoughts and feelings on the new Mecha skins! The feedback and bugs you leave here will help us get a better idea of things we may still have to take a look at. :]
See you on the Rift!

Lastly, we’re pretty sure everyone’s used to this by now, but please keep in mind the promo chests have been heavily discounted for testing on PBE, and the drop rates of items in the chests may also change before we go live.

Leave your feedback on the skin or even the idea of a free, exclusive skin in hextech crafting below, and we’ll see you on the PBE battlefields!

Jungle Data Gathering for Early Game

Reinboom Final PortraitHey guys, we have a change coming soon to a PBE near you meant to help us improve our understanding of how people jungle (especially early game).

When we tried to poke into some of the responses we got it became very apparent that people address the jungle in very different manners. Lots of small changes add up to huge swings in what champions look like coming out of their first clear.

What this means for us is that it’s hard to balance early jungle without some more insight, so we’re calling on you guys to help.

We’re putting a change that is PBE ONLY to help build this shared understanding of how junglers jungle individually: A set of buffs that track your jungle progress in the first portion of the jungle.

By giving us a direct peak at how you interact with the jungle you give us a chance to improve it. Maybe by making a mechanic more clear, rebalancing a camp, or many other systems. But first this type of information would help us know which systems.

Here’s what the buffs look like:

GqqauMg  

(The primary buff)

 

13KFFU4 (1)

(After taking 1 camp. In this case, Krugs)

 

B12h25a

(After taking 2 camps. Krugs and then Razorbeaks)

 

It would be super useful to get these value from you guys from champions you expect to play in the jungle. I’m especially interested in the contrast of:
The results of these after you tried it how you normally play the jungle.

And

The results of these after you tried to optimize beyond what you normally do (possibly with the help of these buffs).

[ Link to Post ]

 

 

Could this be moved to Custom games or even Normal games in the future

Reinboom Final PortraitI would want to make it toggleable if we were to do that. It’s not out of the question if there’s value in it beyond this gathering of data, just not right now since such a toggle would take a bit of work (so we would have to judge it versus other things as always).

[ Link to Post ]

 

 

 

What data are you guys at Riot specifically interested in

Reinboom Final PortraitOnly the first 4 camps are shown in the buffs. That’s beyond the barrier of the check for “can jungle” versus “can’t jungle”

Note: these don’t try to figure out if a champion can “Jungle well” – there’s a lot more data than this required for that.

[ Link to Post ]

 

 

Are you gathering data on specific champions or jungling in general

Reinboom Final PortraitSpecific champions. Specifically: “champions you expect to play in the jungle”.

Shadow Isles Lore

 

The following Champions have received additional Shadow Isle-based lore in the client.

 

Elise Final Portrait

Elise’s entrancing beauty and grace conceal the pitiless, black heart of a deadly predator. With ruthless cunning, she lures the unsuspecting with promises of favor from the spider god. Having exchanged her humanity to become something far more sinister, Elise sacrifices the innocent to maintain her power and seemingly eternal youth. No one can fathom how many have been caught in her web, slain to feed her insatiable hunger.

 

Evelynn Final Portrait

Swift and lethal, Evelynn is one of the most deadly – and expensive – assassins in all of Runeterra. Able to merge with the shadows at will, she patiently stalks her prey, waiting for the right moment to strike. While Evelynn is clearly not entirely human, and her heritage remains unclear, it is believed that she hails from the Shadow Isles – though her link with that tortured realm remains shrouded in mystery.

 

Hecarim Final Portrait

Hecarim is a towering, armored specter whose name is whispered fearfully across the length and breadth of Runeterra. He patrols the Shadow Isles, running down anyone foolish enough to set foot upon its cursed soil. As the vanguard of undeath, Hecarim rides forth from the Black Mist, laughing mockingly as he tramples the living beneath his iron-shod hooves.

 

Karthus Final Portrait

Karthus is a harbinger of oblivion, zealously devoted to the beauty and clarity of death. Even in his youth, he was utterly obsessed with mortality, growing ever more relentless in the pursuit of his dark desires. Yearning to be one with death itself, Karthus journeyed to the Shadow Isles and willingly offered himself to undeath. Karthus transformed into the Deathsinger, a dread lich existing solely to deliver the blessed gift of annihilation.

 

Maokai Final Portrait

Maokai was bound to a gnarled tree by the dark magic that transformed the Shadow Isles. The once-peaceful nature spirit is now a corruption of his former self. Infused with power that he never asked for, he has become a destructive force, sundering his enemies with wild magic and crushing limbs. Maokai continues to wander Valoran, seeking the means to bring life back to his forest home.

 

Mordekaiser Final Portrait

The vicious wraith Mordekaiser is among the most terrifying and hateful of spirits that haunt the Shadow Isles. Entombed in ancient armor, the Master of Metal is said to be the first of the unliving, a revenant who existed even before the Shadow Isles were wrought. His twisted soul thrives on his own suffering, as well as the anguish he inflicts upon others. Those who dare face Mordekaiser in battle risk a horrific curse: he enslaves his victims’ souls to become instruments of destruction.

 

Thresh Final Portrait

Thresh is a sadistic, spectral reaper who relishes tormenting the living and the dead. Once a jailer who mercilessly brutalized all under his charge, Thresh was hanged from his own chains by the prisoners he had tortured. With his vicious essence unbound, the Chain Warden roams Runeterra in search of prey. He derives twisted joy from slowly breaking the minds of his most defiant victims, before trapping their souls within the sickly green light of his lantern.

 

Yorick Final Portrait

A terrifying and tragic figure, Yorick is a ghoulish being that exists on the edge of mortality. Some say he was the last of his family line, dying without an heir to continue its legacy, and that he is cursed to continue to his family’s duty even after death. Wielding the twisted shovel he bore in life, he continues his macabre work, endlessly digging and filling graves upon the haunted Shadow Isles.
