1/8 PBE Update: New Kayle Skin: "Aether Wing Kayle", Evelynn Nerfs

The PBE's just been updated with a new patch, and included is this new Kayle Skin datamined by SkinSpotlights. Note that these particles are NOT final, and considering this Kayle is rumored to be a legendary skin, it certainly seems like she'll get quite a few new changes before release. Personally I think the wings look kinda like Hextech Anivia.

NERFS: Annie, Evelynn, Katarina, Banshee's Veil, Last Whisper, Liandry's Torment, Will of the Ancients
BUFFS: Corki, Ryze, Thresh
TWEAKEDTwin Shadows
This patch seems primarily directed towards tweaking aura items to be more support-based~

  1. The WotA change is fascinating. Other than that, pretty good stuff. But...

    Yeah, even though it's *technically* a nerf in terms of rushing it, the fact that it builds from a GP10 item could theoretically make it "less" expensive if you buy it late.

  3. I don't really see Vladimir or Kennen (for examples) building Kage's, though, that's the main problem. I don't see supports building WotA, either. It's an odd toss-up.

  4. It says buff up at the top for Twin Shadows, then down below it is labeled nerf...

    Hi Mopy, thanks for the catch. In my defense, it was a little bit of both! =x

    when you think about it, annie can get her stuns up more now. most people put the level in shield for the charge up anyways.

  7. thinkfacilityJanuary 09, 2013

    That's a good point, if you think about it that way then I suppose it's actually a buff lol

  8. SSJSuntasticJanuary 09, 2013

    That's a good point, if you think about it that way then I suppose it's actually a buff lol

  9. Did you swap the buff/nerfs of the items? At the start of the post it says WotA and Liandry's are getting buffed, but at the bottom it says they're nerfed.

    Hi shai, I believe I did, thanks for pointing that out. Overall I'd say they were nerfs even though I suppose that in some sense they are tweaks. Thanks for posting!
