Miscellaneous 

  • Several „SG_“ files were added in today’s update. Below is the „SG_skybox_a.dds“ asset, which features art very similar to previously seen Star Guardian art. Unsure what these will be used for exactly but the handful of files are all related to map textures /environment. 
  • [Possible new hints/tips for start of game. Will look into and confirm when pbe up]

Balance Changes

    Context & Notes

    the WIPst there was WIPst there is and WIPst there ever will be. 

    1) Here’s Meddler with his quick gameplay thoughts for June 13th including mention of a few changes to expect as the 7.13 PBE cycle continues:

    „Morning all, 

    Usual Disclaimers 

    These posts will often contain talk about future work we’re doing, or planning to do, that isn’t yet guaranteed to ship. The nature of the work could change or, depending on what we discover, projects mentioned may get put delayed or even stopped.

    Support Starting Items 

    We’ve been looking at the starting support items now that they’ve been out for a while. Conclusion is that the Coin line is underperforming, so we’ll be doing some more work on it. That will likely involve improvements both to the tier1 and tier 2 versions as well as the tier 3 upgrades (probably both Talisman and Eye of the Oasis). 

    Possible the Frost Queen’s is also too strong, what we’ll likely do is buff coin first though then reassess whether that’s actually the case or not. 

    Some 7.13 Balance Context 

    Some of the things we’re investigating in 7.13:

    • Shaco – Looking at E changes to better support AD builds (more assassin generally). Trying things like damage of 50-150 + 1.2 bonus AD, instead of 5-125 + 0.75 total AD, changing the low health effect to be a multiplier on the existing damage, rather than a percentage of the target’s missing health. Also considering swapping it from magical to physical damage. 
    • Trundle – Aiming to give him a bit more dueling power against AD opponents (higher AD steal on Q) and seeing whether or not we can give him some split push back. We’ve seen a lot of people missing the tower chomping with Q so investigating whether or not we can afford to return that (though it needed to be removed previously, think that might have been an unnecessary call though).  

    No new champ in 7.13 

    We’re getting closer to a new champ, for those wondering though (seeing a bit of speculation) no, there won’t be a new champ dropping onto the PBE in 7.13 today (or later in the cycle). 

    Assassin Items 

    We’re looking at some of the assassin items as well at present that aren’t quite hitting the mark. Goals are to get a bit more choice into assassin itemization (e.g. make Duskblade a decent 1st item, change access to CDR/impact of Black Cleaver, make out of combat movement speed something you choose to itemize into rather than just getting). Might start seeing some of that on the PBE soon, changes will likely come gradually, potentially with some this patch and some next. 

    Warded Ping 

    Is on its way. Odds are reasonable, though not guaranteed, it will be in the next patch or the one after.“
