Note: this will be on the PBE before it is officially released!

Summoners!

In the next patch we’ll be rolling out some changes to the art of Summoner’s Rift aimed at bringing low and mid spec players better aesthetics as well as overall graphical performance. The next time you take to the Fields of Justice, you may notice a few new and improved visuals.

Some of the enhancements include:
  • Better game performance at low and mid spec.
  • Updated textures across Summoner’s Rift.
  • Improved animations on many of the monsters, including the Ancient Golem, the Lizard Elder and, of course, Baron Nashor.
  • A new, animated shopkeeper to service all of your champion’s item purchases.




This is another improvement aimed at helping you continue to get the most out of your time playing League of Legends.

We’ll see you all out there on the Fields of Justice, summoners!

I like everything except the shop keeper... where's my big purple buddy? =x

For those that didn't know, any graphical updates they are performing were a part of the previously announced "Project Shiny", instead of waiting to release all of it (which would take forever), they've been releasing changes as they are finished.

Edit: Video

Edit: Better video focusing specifically on graphic update

I'll say it again, that shopkeeper doesn't look right.

It's to represent the fall of communism and the rise of capitalism. That's why the pig had to go.

Meh I actually don't like it all that much.

It's a little more muted and dark than it was, kinda takes some of the magic away

The most in depth guide to Twitch around.

Props to wRAthoFVuLK for the beastly sig and putting up with my request XD
