Greetings Summoners. Karthus, the Deathsinger, is now ready for PBE testing! (in a few minutes)
In this ghastly VU, you'll see new models and textures, new animations, new visual effects, new sounds, new VO, and more! We've updated the skins as well, so the four skins of Karthus will be a treat for the eyes. In addition, we found a bug where Pentakill Karthus wasn't nearly as metal as he could be. We've added a few VO lines to help rectify this.
One of the bigger changes that we've made to Karthus is on his Passive, Death Defied. There were a lot of times where people would lose the old Karthus in the thick of a fight, or where the person playing him wouldn't realize that he still had time to cast. We've tried to heavily beef this up by giving the Deathsinger unique animations upon his death. He also has this really menacing cackle of power that I'm rather fond of.
As you approach your testing, please keep these questions in mind!
* How do you feel about the clarity of the particles? Are there any times where this changes?
* Do you find the particles to be too loud or too quiet?
* How do you feel about the skins? Do they properly capture the fantasy that you already know them for?
Please feel free to leave your feedback in this thread regarding Karthus or any related bugs you encounter. Your feedback here will influence the changes we make, as well as aiding us in our future champion Visual Updates!
