Xerath's Rework Coming to PBE With 3.12

This splash art is actually based on the new VFX for the Xerath rework by Bitsplosion. Xerath was slated to begin PBE testing this patch, with an expected release date sometime in the future. However, after some discussion, we feel the new splash art is supremely badass and will be releasing it early with 3.12.

Xerath's new VFX (including his new ultimate pictured in the background) will be released alongside the Xerath rework once PBE and competitive testing have concluded.

Hope this answers your questions, and thank you for your incredible patience as we finish up his rework.
I'm a fan of it. Do you have a more exact date as to when he'll be available on the PBE?
Sadly, Riot dates are generally related to patches and not real life dates. 3.13 should commence the start of PBE testing, with testing slated to wrap up in 3.15, giving us plenty of time to tune him competitively.
May not be your department but, Will Scorched Earth Xerath have amazing new animations to match?
I don't know. Bitsplosion is doing some work to improve Battlecast and Runeborn Xerath, but I haven't seen Scorched Earth's updates yet.

More Galio Changes Soon

almost done with that, so hopefully we'll be talking about galio in the very near future. :3
Jayce changes you say?! :0

as far as turnaround, i hope to have the jayce changes out in 3.13—we'll see how it goes though. :3

Jungle and Support Gold Income Conclusions

Major takeaways:

* People are interested in Clairvoyance being improved
* There is interest in alternate forms of wards, vision and items that interact with the vision system
* A substantial amount of interest exists in seeing the basic ward formula re-evaluated
* Ward limits are frequently brought up as a way of bringing relief to supports
** Additional ways of allowing you to take objectives is still important if ward limits exist
* There's some concern about the power of supports with high AP items

And tons and tons of ideas about things to try. More than I could ever comment on specifically.
Be sure to tell that to your collegues so they include us too in the future instead of forgetting us
Anyway thanks for including EUW in such a big discussion, I think you are the first to ever do that. Also can u get it so that the redtracker tracks you? It makes it so much easyer to follow this thread.
I contacted them about this.

Thanks for the thoughts.
