Urgot rework and Omega Squad skins hit PBE

With League of Legends Patch 7.14 going live Wednesday, it means the first possible tweaks are also available looking ahead to Patch 7.15. The most notable addition includes Urgot, who received a face lift. After a long waiting period, the gross thing that used to be a tanking AD Carry will make a grand comeback with new skills in every slot.

His new passive, Echoing Flames, allows his auto attacks facing in the direction of one of his six legs to combust flames toward the target, dealing more damage in an area. The leg used in that direction will then be put on cool down, meaning the Urgot player will constantly have to reposition in order to get all six empowered shots onto a target.

His Q, Corrosive Charge, launches an explosive charge to a location. It stays on the ground for a short time before exploding, dealing damage in an area and slowing the targets.

His W, Purge, puts a shield is put around Urgot and he rapidly fires the nearest enemy unit, and triggering his passive when possible. He moves more slowly while shooting, he is immune to slowing effects, and he can move through enemy champions. While this skill is active, his auto attacks are disabled.

His E, Disdain, allows Urgot to charge in a direction, stop when he hits an enemy champion and then pick up and and throw the champion to the other side. Non-champion units like minions and monsters take damage and then are knocked aside.

His ultimate, Fear Beyond Death, launches a drill in a skill shot, which sticks onto the first enemy champion hit. Over time it does physical damage and slows the enemy until the end of the timer. When the enemy champion struck is under a certain health threshold, Urgot can activate his ultimate again to drag the enemy champion — making them un-targetable — and executes them, if they reach him. When he kills an enemy champion in that way, he terrifies all nearby enemies.

Along with new abilities, Urgot’s new skins, voice lines, interactions, and artwork will be added to the PBE for bug testing.

The Omega Squad skin line is expanded

One of Teemo’s more popular skins, Omega Squad Teemo will get new friends. Tristana, Veigar, Fizz, and and Twitch will all be getting their own Omega Sqaud skin. The skins are set to be 1,350RP, or $10, and will even have their very own chroma variations, including Teemo.

Also added to the PBE is a new Omega Squad ward skin and icons.
