1/2/13 PBE Changes: Lots of Earlier Changes Reverted!

1 comment
The PBE was updated just a little while ago, and features a few new balance changes!

Nerfs: Black Cleaver, Enchantment: Captain
Buffs: The Lightbringer, Archangel's Staff, Udyr
Changed: Iceborn Gauntlet

Champion Balance Changes:
  • Turtle Stance reverted to 60/95/130/165/200 from 60/100/140/180/220 (reverted)
  • His passive now gives 4% armor and magic resist for 5 seconds in addition to 10% attack speed every time he changes stances, which stacks up to 3 times.

Item Balance Changes:
Archangel's Staff:
  • Now grants +6 mana for each spell cast (up from +5)
  • No longer grants mana on each basic attack (reverted)
Thoughts: Seems like they're trying to give you more incentive to rush it instead of keeping a tear until it's maxed. The auto-attack nerf doesn't really affect it much since most people have tear nearly maxed when they get the staff anyway.
Black Cleaver:
  • Reduces armor by 6.25% (reverted from 7.5%)
Thoughts: Thank goodness! The original buffed Black Cleaver seemed a little silly to begin with.
Enchantment: Captain:
  • Now grants nearby minions 20% movement speed (down from 25%)
Thoughts: It seems like this was to prevent split pushing from going out of control.
Iceborn Gauntlet:
Thoughts: Ezreal says "Whew. Dodged that bullet!"
The Lightbringer:
  • New Unique Passive: Nearby stealthed enemy traps are revealed
The Lightbringer
Thoughts: Somewhat targeted at Teemo I suppose? Just a little added bonus since Lightbringer already  has so many effects on it to begin with...
Note: Everything on the PBE is tentative and subject to change, think of it as Riot's Sandbox for testing out new things. While many of the changes will make it to live, many also will not. For older PBE updates, check out this link here!

  1. Hm hope they also bring some form of that Lightbringer passive to normal, but maybe as an active with cd to keep it from countering Teemo traps too easily.
