 PBE Bugs Feedback Thread Warring Kingdoms Nidalee

Nurse Flan Final Portrait A white cougar stalks the streets, decorated in intricate patterns and ornaments. Then, in a flurry of crimson petals, Warring Kingdoms Nidalee appears to keep the peace on the streets during the fireworks celebration!

She’s got the moves and the looks to kill!

  • Completely new human and cougar models! (fancy fancy)
  • New ability particles! (lots of red petals!)
  • New recalls! (Wushu flurry in human form, and “WOW FOLLOW THE RED SPARK” in cougar!)

As players who get the first look at this in-progress skin, it would be wonderful to hear your thoughts and feelings on this new Lunar Revel skin! The feedback (good and bad) 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!

NOTE: Some minor sfx may be missing, hang tight!

“Greatness comes in all shapes and sizes, as proven by this diminutive, cannon-wielding yordle. In a world fraught with turmoil, Tristana refuses to back down from any challenge. She represents the pinnacle of martial proficiency, unwavering courage, and boundless optimism. For Trist and her gun, Boomer, every mission is a chance to prove that heroes do exist.”
