Global Splash Update Incoming

Riot JxE Final PortraitHey folks,

As many of you (especially fans of the Chinese LoL scene) may know, some of our older skin and champion splash arts are different across the world. This is a big deal – splash art is one of most important tools we have for conveying a champion’s fantasy and personality in League. We want players to have a global, unified experience – it’s confusing when (ex.) Taric or Goth Annie have vastly divergent representations of their power and feel depending on which region you play League in.

Splashes are used everywhere: from champ select to the loading screen, portrait icons, the store, and more recently Hextech Crafting. With that in mind, we’ll be updating a large number of our older splash arts to unify them across all regions. You should be seeing the first batch in today’s PBE (and onward throughout the patch 6.7 PBE cycle), with another batch coming later in patch 6.8!

Edit: Thanks for the feedback everyone. We won’t be making any reverts or changes during this round, but this feedback will help our splash artists prioritize what to upgrade when they get the chance. I mentioned this in a comment, the benefit of making these changes is to eliminate a pipeline that has been causing us internal pain. We know some of these aren’t as nice and the art style is off, but choosing one splash or the other was the fastest way to kill this pipeline. We want to focus on new content and features, not firefighting and changes like this help us do that.

The fourth shot crits for double damage.

Shen’s also received updated in-client lore to complement his rework:

 

”The Eye is blind to fear, to hate, to love, to all things that would sway equilibrium.”

Leader of a secret clan of mystic warriors, Shen serves as the Eye of Twilight, entrusted to enforce equilibrium in the world. Longing to remain free from the confusion of emotion, prejudice, or ego, Shen continually struggles, spirit blade in hand, to walk the unseen path of dispassionate judgment.

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

 

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

 

 

LUNAR REVEL LOGIN ANIMATION

If she’s able to destroy all four weak spots in 8 seconds, or if she destroys at least one before her target dies, Fiora creates a large and long-lasting zone under her enemy that heals Fiora and her allied champions for 80/110/140 [+0.6 AD] each second for 5 seconds.

NEW FIORA INCLIENT LORE

To complement her gameplay & visual rework, Fiora’s received a new short client entry:

 

”I have come to kill you for the sake of honor. And though you possess none, you will die just the same.” The most feared duelist in all of Valoran, Fiora is as renowned for her indomitable will and haughty pride as she is for her skill with the blade. She was born to Demacia’s House Laurent, a once-proud family whose reputation was tarnished by the actions of her father. In an unprecedented move, Fiora challenged him to single combat and, upon winning, took control of House Laurent. Defying the Demacian establishment, she has set about restoring the reputation and pride of her family name, one duel at a time.

    Improvements to ARAM mode

    Riot JxE Final Portrait Hey all!

    As we continue to polish and update Summoner’s Rift, we found a cool opportunity to make some improvements to Howling Abyss and ARAM. Without any further ado, let’s break the ice and get things rolling – here is the list of changes coming to the PBE today:

     

    Gameplay Changes; My Mind is Telling Me No:

    New Summoner Spell on ARAM: Mark/Dash

    After analyzing the results of Legend of the Poro King, we realized that Poro Toss gave an across-the-board bump in viability to some historically unpopular picks and helped balance the playing field. After careful consideration and some tweaks we’re bringing this back to ARAM as an optional new summoner spell called Mark/Dash.

    Mark allows you toss a projectile at an enemy unit, you can then follow up on a Marked unit with Dash to quickly travel to the Marked target.

    Go forth and tower dive, but remember, it’s only worth it if you say so in chat.

     

    Item Changes; Out With the New, In With the Old:

    Bloodthirster added

    With the recent rework of Bloodthirster, it made sense to re-introduce the SR favorite to ARAM to help out champions that rely on high AD to be more successful on the map. The passive doesn’t hurt either – shields up!

    Sanguine Blade removed

    10 out of 10 ADCs agree that Bloodthirster is bigger, better and bloodier than Sanguine Blade. We can’t argue with that, so we’ll be retiring it from ARAM.

    Warmogs added

    Ever shed a tear after purchasing Giant’s Belt on ARAM only to remember you can’t build Warmogs? We’re bringing the HP behemoth to ARAM to give tanks a little love and to help them survive poke long enough to initiate at the right time. Note that we’ll be keeping a close eye on this one to make sure tanks don’t become too overpowering.

    Skin Boosts; Turning the Random Dial to 11:

    After flicking some switches and fiddling with a couple of dials, we’ve successfully added Skin Boosts to our ARAM update! Throw down 95RP and you’ll give everyone on your team a one-time random skin for the champ they’re using that game. You’ll also earn yourself 200IP while giving your teammates 100IP.

    Map & Art Changes; No More Nexus Gnomes:

    We’ve skinned some of the art from Summoner’s Rift to match the Howling Abyss theme and bring some consistency between the maps. We also took this opportunity to do some general art polish, make some performance improvements and fix an issue that caused champion spells to sometimes be clipped when drawing on the ground. Check out these screenshots for more details.

     

    Reskinned Minions

     

    New Loading Screen

     

    Here’s the new summoner spell for ARAM (identical to the one from the Poro King featured mode):

     


    Mark Final IconMark

    Throw a snowball a long distance, dealing true damage to the first enemy unit hit. If it hits an enemy, this ability can be recast for 3 seconds to Dash to the tagged unit. Dashing to the target will reduce the cooldown of Mark by 25%.

    Mark projectiles are not stopped by spell shields or projectile mitigation.

     


    Dash Final IconDash [ Re-cast Mark ]

    Dash to the unit hit by Mark. Casting Dash will reduce the cooldown of Mark by 25%.

    Champion Mastery

    A new feature is coming that’ll reward your experience and playtime with your favourite champions. You can read more on the feature HERE.

    [ Note ] Champion Mastery will roll out for a single region initially. It’s been temporarily disabled on the PBE so it may not ship with patch 5.6.

     

    Champion Mastery Banner

     

     

    HOW THE SYSTEM WORKS

    Finish a game of League and you’ll earn points for your champion based on your team’s performance as well as your own contribution. Earn enough points and you’ll level up that champ’s mastery level, giving you rewards as you progress.

     

    Grades

    Hover over your Champion Mastery points bar in the post-game screen and you’ll see the grade that our new system gives you. Grades are awarded based on your overall performance in the role along with the champion you’re playing and, crucially, where you’re playing them.

     

    Leveling Up

    Check out your in-client profile, and you’ll see a new stat telling you your mastery score, a sum of all your mastery ranks combined.

     

    REWARDS

    We’re kicking off Champion Mastery with the first five ranks for each champion unlocked. Here are the crests your champion will earn as they rank up:

    Loyalty rewards

    MFrequency: Hi everyone,

    We’re going to be testing some fixes and updates to our Loyalty service (PC café rewards system) on the PBE, so for the next week, you will all once again be receiving Loyalty rewards!

    For those who are unfamiliar with Loyalty, it is our way of giving players extra perks for playing League of Legends in PC cafes in certain regions. In many Asian and European countries (Korea, for example), players tend to play League of Legends primarily in these PC cafés instead of on personal computers, where they pay by the hour to play the game of their choice in a social environment. Within this environment, most game titles (regardless of retail market price) are offered to players at a reduced cost (or at no cost) to offset the café’s usage fee and keep the playerbase healthy. Riot’s approach is to allow players to temporarily select any champion when playing League of Legends from PC cafés, as well as earn a small amount of additional IP. This feature does not reward any players when they log in outside of PC cafés, even if they are using the same account.

    As a reminder: When this feature is active, you will see a small medal icon in the top-right corner of the League of Legends client, earn an additional 20% IP at the end of matches (visible as a segment of the IP bar on the postgame screen), and all champions will appear unlocked (similar to the weekly free Champion selection). The only champion we are not awarding at this time is Bard, since we still need to make sure he’s able to be purchased! Like the Free to Play rotation, Loyalty does not actually apply champion ownership to an account, so you will still need to purchase champions before you can buy skins for them.

    Please reply to this thread if you play this week and do not receive Loyalty rewards, so that we can investigate!

    Thanks,
    MFrequency

    Here’s a preview of what the Loyalty Rewards look like:

    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

    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.

    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.

He gains 100% Lifesteal, attacks extremely fast and will deal an additional 10% of his target’s maximum Health on hit. Max 75 bonus damage against monsters. All of his abilities are replaced with Death Surge, which grants him a burst of Movement Speed.

    BLOOD.

    SMELL IT.

    WANT. ACHING. NEED!

    CLOSE NOW. THEY COME.

    NO CHAINS? FREE! KILL!

    IN REACH. YES! DIE! DIE!

    Gone. Too quick. No fight. More. I want… more.

    A voice? Unfamiliar. I see him. The Grand General. My general.

    He leads. I follow. Marching. To where? I should know. I can’t remember.

    It all bleeds together. Does it matter? Noxus conquers. The rest? Trivial. So long… since I’ve tasted victory.

    The war wagon rocks. Rattles. A cramped cage. Pointless ceremony. The waiting. Maddening. Faster, dogs!

    There. Banners. Demacians and their walls. Cowards. Their gates will shatter. Thoughts of the massacre come easily.

    Who gave the order to halt? The underlings don’t answer. No familiar faces. If I do not remember, neither will history.

    The cage is opened. Finally! No more waiting. WE CHARGE!

    Slings and arrows? The weapons of children! Their walls will not save them!

    I can taste their fear. They shrink at every blow as their barricades splinter. SOON!

    Noxian drums. Demacian screams. Glory isn’t accolades; glory is hot blood on your hands! This is life!

    A thousand shattered corpses lie at my feet, and Demacian homes burn all around me. It’s over too quickly! Just one more…

    The men stare. There’s fear in their eyes. If they’re afraid to look upon victory, I should pluck those craven eyes out. There is no fear in the Grand General’s eyes, only approval. He is pleased with this conquest.

    Walking the field with the Grand General, surveying the carnage, I ache for another foe. He is hobbled, a leg wound from the battle? If it pains him, he does not show it. A true Noxian. I do not like his pet, though; it picks over the dead, having earned nothing. His war hounds were more fitting company.

    Demacia will be within our grasp soon. I can feel it. I am ready to march. The Grand General insists that I rest. How can I rest when my enemies still live?

    Why do we mill about? The waiting eats at me. I’m left to my own devices. The bird watches. It’s unsettling. Were it anyone else’s, I would crush it.

    Fatigue sets in. I’ve never felt so… tired.

    Boram? Is that you? What are you whispering?

    Where am I?

    Captured? Kenneled like some dog. How?

    There was… the battle, the razing of the fortress, the quiet of the aftermath. Were we ambushed? I can’t remember.

    I was wounded. I can feel the ragged gash… but no pain. They thought me dead. Now, I am their prize. Fate is laughing. I will not be caged! They will regret sparing me.

    Demacian worms! They parrot kind words, but they are ruthless all the same. This place is a dank pit. They bring no food. There is no torture. They do not make a show of me. I am left to rot.

    I remember my finest hour. I held a king by his throat and felt the final beat of his heart through my tightening grasp. I don’t remember letting go. Is this your vengeance, Jarvan?

    I hear the triumphal march. Boots on stone. Faint, through the dungeon walls. The cadence of Noxian drums. I shall be free. Demacian blood will run in the streets!

    No one came. I heard no struggle. No retreat. Did I imagine it?

    There is no aching in this stump. I barely noticed the iron boot. It’s caked in rust.

    When did I lose my leg?

    I still smell the blood. Battle. It brings comfort.

    The hunger gnaws. I have not slept. Time crawls. So tired.

    How long?

    So dark. This pit. I remember. Grand General. His whispering. What was it?

    Not who I think.

    Fading. Mustn’t forget.

    Message. Cut. Remember.

    ”SION – Beware ravens.”

    FREE ME!

    BLOOD.”
