Scarra chat commands
<

The PBE has been updated! As we continue the 8. 3 PBE cycle, today’s patch includes Swain’s in-client lore, non-English Scarra chat commands, and more!

Continue reading for more information! Jericho Swain is the visionary ruler of Noxus, an expansionist nation that reveres only strength. Though he was cast down and crippled in the Ionian wars, his left arm severed, he seized control of the empire with ruthless determination and a new, demonic hand. Now, Swain commands from the front lines, marching against a coming darkness that only he can see– in glimpses gathered by shadowy ravens from the corpses all around him. In a swirl of sacrifice and secrets, the greatest secret of all is that the true enemy lies within.

Be aware that what you see below may be relative to other changes earlier this cycle! A number of Rengar players were observing that the Q felt sluggish, so tweaking it a bit to make it feel snappier. R damage was straight too high if you compare it to the damage numbers he got from the old crit so we’re taking the base down a bit, may need to also hit the ratio going into the future. Vision changes are trying a way to give Rango MORE vision on the ult without giving him complete information unless he works for it.

Hopefully it will improve his ability to feel like a hunter while still allowing for the possibility of errors due to incomplete scouting. This specific change is highly experimental and may be iterated away from. More tweaks to come over the next week, thanks for all the feedback. I noticed that the partial reset I put on Q was causing Rengar to freakout during his combo and do some weird stuff, so I removed it and returned the old AS buff for 2 attacks. This hopefully makes Q feel even smoother AND gets rid of a ton of bugs that were popping up during combos. The bonus damage on the ult was making Rengar’s initial undodgeable hit deal quite a bit of damage.

AND makes him less frustrating to play against as he isn’t doing nearly as much damage in that first undodgeable instant. May also open up room to buff Q damage in the future. THIS CHANGE IS EXPERIMENTAL, WE MAY ITERATE AWAY FROM IT. It makes a portion of his burst combo dodgeable. Hope is that this will make the build more maintainable going into the future.

AP Rango bursts you with spells, AD Rango murders you with Q and basic attacks. Finally, Matteo, Rengar’s sound designer, has been reading up on your feedback and decided it would be a good opportunity to get some choice VO lines back in where appropriate. Tell us what you think. January 24th, including lengthy thoughts on top lane, as well as thoughts on Pro play!
