SenpAI Comments: 10.13 PBE Notes – New Pool Party Skins

Another PBE Cycle with updates on champions and systems! SenpAI is here to list the recent additions to the PBE server with the upcoming patch 10.13. Summer has come while we were dueling withstay home conditions and the Pool Party line has new champions. Let’s go!

Champion Skins

patch 10.13 PBE

Pool Party skins added to PBE for testing:

  • Pool Party: Heimer, Jarvan IV, Orianna, Syndra, Taliyah

VFX Updates on Rift Hospital skins with champions below:

  • Nurse Akali
  • Kennen, M.D.
  • Surgeon Shen

Pool Party Heimerdinger (1350 RP)

PBE 10 13

“Through the combination of precise schematics and top-of-the-line construction tools, Heimerdinger’s next sand castle creation will be his grandest iteration yet! Assuming Syndra doesn’t land on it again…”

  • Models and textures!
  • VFX
  • SFX
  • Recall animation

Looks like Heimer has joined the bleached hair fashion that goes around for a couple of years. Not a good choice to sustain in Summer since the pool already does that for you. The skin looks nice yet the VFX on E will possibly have some adjustments.

If you would like to take a look at the in-game features; check HERE.

Pool Party Jarvan IV (1350 RP)

PBE 10 13

“For Jarvan, there’s nothing more relaxing than hanging out at the beach. No kingdoms to run, no thrones to sit on (save for his favorite beach chair), just the sound of the waves and, if he listens closely, the faint whistle of a volleyball being spiked directly at him…”

  • Models and textures!
  • VFX
  • SFX
  • Recall animation

We know it will sound weird but Summoners demanded some leg hair on Jarvan IV to amplify his manliness yet Riot has announced that upon a vote among themselves, Jarvan will stay shiny.  

Wonder what it looks like in-game? Check the new Jarvan IV HERE.

Pool Party Orianna (1350 RP)

PBE 10 13

“With her latest outfit, Orianna is finally able to submerge completely in aquatic biomes. This brings her great joy, as a day at the beach previously required subsequent weeks of scrubbing salt, sand, and sometimes an angry crab out of her gears.”

  • Models and textures!
  • VFX
  • SFX
  • Recall animation

Okay, the color scheme looks weird on Orianna, we admit. Since the chromas will have many hair color options, Riot has decided to tweak her model by skin color or updating the splash art which currently is pending approval.

Is she going to be alright in the water? Check the in-game components HERE.

Pool Party Syndra (1350 RP)

PBE 10 13

“Now that Syndra’s aced all her opponents, it’s time for her final test: prevent any rogue volleyballs from hitting her friends. Again.”

  • Models and textures!
  • VFX
  • SFX
  • Recall animation

Upon the comments from the community, Riot has added some sand VFX besides water to her abilities which looks quite better now. 

We would be terrified to play beach volley with Syndra. Check the in-game components HERE.

Pool Party Taliyah (1350 RP)

PBE 10 13

“Taliyah once attempted to describe surfboarding to a perplexed Jarvan, using such terms as “get pitted”, “tubular”, and “ride the barrel”. She’s pretty sure he still has no idea what she was talking about.”

  • Models and textures!
  • VFX
  • SFX
  • Recall animation

Honestly, her model looks awesome! We need more effects on her ultimate and additions to rest of the skillset to have an impact. Then we will be content with the overall outcome.

She can also bend water, now how cool is that? Check the new skin in-game HERE.
