So, what has Riot changed? And what was their plan with the Sydnra modifications currently being explored on PBE’s server? According to Riot TheTruexy, They wanted to give her greater power ups via her passive and make some of her spells more effective in certain game situations. For example, her E was more powerful in the early stages, and her W in the latter. 

These are the changes that have been made on the PBE Server. Oh, and she also has new icons for her power-up abilities.

Get the latest Blitzcrank updates on PBE right now

Blitzcrank will also be receiving some major updates. They could also be used as support. The bot lane is where the support is currently annoying. However, these updates could change that. 

  • Base Stats
    • Base Attack Speed: Increased from 0.625 to 0.65
    • Attack Speed Ratio: Increased from 0.625 to 0.7
  • Overdrive (W)
    • Attack Speed: Increased from 30% – 62% to 40% – 92%

  • Static Field (R)
    • Passive AP ratio rose from 30% to 30% flat to 30% up to 50%
    • No longer capped at three stacks

This could make Blitzcrank an attractive option in the jungle and even the top lane. Perhaps this champ is worth a chance with the current changes on the PBE? The possibilities are endless. Moakai changes to make him more attainable in other positions have worked, so why not Blitzcrank?

URF Back on the PBE Server 12.19

With the League of Legends World Championship There will be a new mode for the game. What mode did Riot select this time around? Not Nexus Blitz, that’s for sure Instead we’re getting URF… again. Riot also plans to release more Spirit Blossom skins, and the new Nexus Blitz maps is actually inspired by the original Spirit Blossoms. This was not a pleasant surprise for fans. 

  • How did URF fans react to the news that URF would be back in the next patch of the game? 

Instead, we’re going to be playing URF once more. It seems that we will never get another PvE game mode. Riot has been playing these four modes for 4 years now.

Spirit Blossom Skins Return in LoL Patch 12.19

It has been more than two years since League of Legends released Spirit Blossom skins. The first batch of skins were and are still iconic. LoL Patch 12.19 has received a total number of ten. new Spirit Blossom skins To add to the Ionian folklore, are we crazy? Not at all. 

  • Sett, The Spirit of Challenge
  • Aphelios, Twin Spirits of Night
  • Syndra, the Spirit of Freedom
  • Evelynn, The Spirit of Love
  • Tristana is the Spirit of Chance
  • Soraka, the Spirit Of Pity
  • Darius, the Spirit of War
  • Yorick, the Spirit Of Ruin
  • Master Yi, the Spirit of Legacy
    • Spirit Blossom Master Yi Prestige Edition

The game will add a total of ten skins. These skins will be added to the game. Ionia: Mystery to Ionia Since these skins appear to be canonical, each champion represents a spirit from the Ionian folklore. I wonder how their stories will relate to the original Spirit Blossom Skins. (c/ Riftfeed
