League of Legends’ newest pop star, Seraphine, is set to take center stage on Summoner’s Rift in just a couple of weeks. When she does, she’ll be coming with an Ultimate skin ⁠— the first since Elementalist Lux in 2018 ⁠— based on her K/DA debut.

Seraphine’s release in League of Legends is so tantalizingly close.

The popstar from Piltover and Zaun is set to make her debut on Summoner’s Rift in the coming weeks, just as her EP collaboration with K/DA, titled “ALL OUT”, drops.

To celebrate the momentous occasion ⁠— not just for Seraphine, but for K/DA fans and League players ⁠— Riot are dropping the game’s first Ultimate skin since Elementalist Lux in 2018.

Seraphine is getting an Ultimate skin on her release to celebrate her collab with K/DA.

K/DA ALL OUT Seraphine will feature three forms ⁠— Indie, Rising Star, and Superstar. The pop idol will evolve from a bedroom talent to a stage star as the game progresses, although just how she will do that remains unclear.

Given it’s an Ultimate skin though, it’s bound to be spectacular. There are only five ultimate skins in League of Legends, priced at 2775 RP and 3250 RP. They are the highest level of cosmetic in the game, featuring a complete overhaul of the champion.

Seraphine getting an Ultimate skin on release is unprecedented however. No champion who has received an Ultimate skin has done so on release. In fact, most of League’s Ultimate skins are for long-standing fan-favorites like Ezreal (Pulsefire) and Miss Fortune (Gun Goddess).

Seraphine isn’t the only K/DA member getting some love. The core four ⁠— Ahri, Akali, Evelynn, and Kai’Sa ⁠— are all set to get new looks when their ALL OUT EP drops. They’ve traded in the gold, purple, and white for blues and blacks in their new cosmetics.

Seraphine’s League of Legends release coming very soon

The skin preview confirms any doubt that players had about Seraphine’s release in League of Legends too. While Riot have heavily hinted at her release for months, these splash arts are the first solid Riot-endorsed evidence that she will be Champion 152.

Instead of outright announcing Seraphine as a League of Legends champion, Riot has been cryptically dancing around the question. In the September 24 Champion Roadmap, they announced that “when Piltover and Zaun’s new rising star finally hits the promenade, she might convert you into an instant mega-fan,” which all but confirmed her release.

There’s also been ability leaks in Wild Rift files that outline Seraphine’s potential kit as a mage. Her passive, which allows her to double cast abilities, opens up the potential for Seraphine to be both a supportive and damage threat with a mix of healing, shielding, and raw power in her kit.

Expect to see more of Seraphine in the coming weeks as she makes her on-stage debut with K/DA at the Worlds 2020 Opening Ceremony on October 31. She could be coming to League of Legends at around the same time too!

The World of Warcraft 22 October Hotfixes sees some major changes to some of the game’s most popular classes alongside a host of other changes.

In the run-up to the highly anticipated release of the Shadowlands expansion, Blizzard have made several key updates to WoW Classic, as well as the Battle for Azaroth.

Between 14-22 October, there has been a range of different updates to the game, but some of the most important have been rolled out after 19 October. These changes include a whole host of alterations to some of the game’s most popular classes, items, quests, and bug fixes.

Blizzard EntertainmentNew adjustments have been made to several of the game’s most dominant classes.

Class Changes

Some of the main changes these Hotfixes will implement apply to the games major classes.

The healing classes of the the game have been given significant buffs, specifically the changes made to the Priest’s ‘Atonement’ to increase the healing lower level characters receive from the spell.Also, taking the Priest with you on “Blade of Twilight” lets the player return to Whispering Woods using the Tirisfal Camp Scroll.

Healers aren’t the only ones who have seen some positive changes. The Demon Hunter has also seen a revision of a bug which decreased armor when using Demon Spikes while buffed.

On the opposite end of the spectrum, the Mage class has seen significant nerfs, with “Arcane Pummelling” losing 40% of its damage per wave and Vision of Perfection no longer proccing Rune of Power.

Headgun Changes

Another significant change in this hotfix appears on the Tactical and Blink-Trigger Headguns, whose cooldown on-use effects have been increased significantly from 30 seconds to 5 minutes. This makes firing those bullets a lot harder, and you’ll have to use them much more sparingly.

Trick or Treat?

As Hallow’s End dominates the game, players will be pleased to hear that the Hallow’s End Candy Bucket in The Veiled Stair now appears in all phases, offering treats to any passers by whenever they need them!
