Slight changes to Ornn’s ultimate coming to League of Legends PBE

A brief update to the League of Legends Public Beta Environment came out Tuesday, with the most notable change a slight buff to Ornn’s ultimate.

Ornn’s ultimate, Call of the Forge God, has a 0.2 ability power ratio on both the initial cast and the recast, on top of the base damage it deals. It is one his few abilities that has any scaling in terms of attack damage or ability power, but according to game designer Blake Smith, this is an intended feature. As a tank, Ornn can deal consistent damage with high base damage values to compensate for any damage stat ratios being added on, without having to mix his tank items with damage items in order to be a threat.

New Star Guardian login screen

The new Star Guardian release will also have a unique login screen in the client to celebrate the occasion. This is just like the first release of the Star Guardian skins, which also had a unique animated login screen as well as accompanying music on the client as players log in. Based on the video, the login screen seems to pan around to capture all of the Star Guardians, instead of a static frame. Skins for the new batch of Star Guardians — Soraka, Ezreal, Ahri, Miss Fortune and Syndra — are also available in the PBE.
