I added descriptions to the pictures so that they make more sense and I separated that one and put it last because you mistakenly thought it was the same skin. It's not. I just put that there so that you could see "CHAMPION NOT OWNED" in big bold red letters. > You can own it in hextech while not owning the champion, though.

Won't have priority But if it's NOT related, it needs to be mentioned. and the Vindicator Vayne skin is the one that baffles me. It doesn't make any sense.
: With the Hextech system, you can own a skin while not owning a champion. You just cannot redeem/activate the skin while you do not have the champion. Also, with the skin and content reset back in December, it was possible to own skins while not owning its champions (because skins were reset one day before the champions got reset). It's still not a bug, though. If that is not what you mean, you will really have to be more specific.

I do not have JINX. I own zombie slayer Jinx, the skin. It is NOT in my hextech inventory. I do not own Nunu. I own Zombie Nunu, the skin. It is NOT in my hextech inventory. It is NOT POSSIBLE to redeem a skin for a champion you do not own. You CANNOT own a skin without owning the champion. But I do. On the PBE only. I do not know if this is the result of the wipe a LONG TIME AGO when the hextech system was introduced. If it is not, then there is another problem, and Riot will likely need to know how to go about fixing it.
: You can get skin shards for champions you do not own. You can also make these skins permanent while not yet having the champion. I think you do not have a bug, and if you buy Vayne, you can redeem the skin.

Vindicator Vayne, shows as OWNED. Meaning I own the skin. But I do not own Vayne.

: [BUG] The scoreboard isn t showing how much drakes has every team killed
Will probably have to be redesigned anyways, it doesn't matter how many drakes you have, it matters how many of each kind... So teams will need to have little WWII-style dragon icons painted on the sides of their aircraft.

: Groovy Zilean splash changes
Old version of Zilean's skin here is the only appropriate one really. When was the last time you walked down the street and saw a hippy? They don't exist anymore man, they live in the past. The OLD skin is the one that makes the most sense. In addition to the arguments made above, which are more than valid.

Dangerous experimental things are dangerous. What I think is most interesting, is, if it works this way (obv haven't tried it yet) it could be more damaging to targets that have larger hitboxes, meaning it could be counters to nautilus, cho'gath, sion, etc. while discouraging the enemy team from picking up elixir of iron. good, bad, I don't know. but if bigger targets can get hit by more of those bolts, it'd be a noteworthy observation. Also if you have the ability to move through units and enemies, you could pixel perfect dash into your enemy for a really nasty burst.

: Framerate drops on snowdown with Varus' new skin.
Did you happen to notice the other champs in the game? might be a bug when certain champs pair up or show up in the same game.
: Opinion on exploitation of bugs within public beta enviroment
exploiting a bug to find other bugs might be a no-no, but finding an exploit and confirming it is absolutely necessary. Don't forget that once you find a bug, you also always want to see how easily it can be reproduced and what other things you might do to trigger it. The more you discover about it, the easier it may be to fix. Also, depending on the champion, you might discover that it affects another two or three champs, all of whom can replicate the bug if you trigger certain conditions first. just as a thought, it might be that a mundo bug could be triggered on Nidalee as well, provided she throws her spear and then moves like mundo would move while building tanky (I know nobody builds tank nidalee, but they would if it gave her the ability to oneshot targets on live). As a person who works in IT, I can tell you that there will never be a day that software works as intended. You peel back the cover to any program and you'll see a spiderweb of duct tape to catch all the bugs.
: Shop Runes without text
Confirmed on my client as well.

: [PBE - 5.22] Adjustments to Killstreak Bounty Rules and Bounty Displays
Can Miss Fortune get some sort of bonus gold when cashing in on these bounties, since she's... you know... a bounty hunter?
: Grasp of the Undying "stealing" 3% max HP implies that it does damage; it doesn't, but should.
Apparently RIOT is using the RIAA/MPAA's version of "steal" whereby you are stealing something by creating a duplicate that has no effect whatsoever on the original.
: Some people may be having problems but the people who blatantly leave the game should get punished.
In an environment like this, though, how can you possibly say that they're doing it intentionally? We're trying to discover and reproduce bugs, including those that crash the client. That kind of thing comes with the territory.
: I don't think that you will get the rest when the dot kills the target, because it is a different source. I would also probably go def instead of utility. The 15% lower SS CD combined with the 2 less dmg taken and HP reg will probably be better in lane

I would also probably go def instead of utility. The 15% lower SS CD combined with the 2 less dmg taken and HP reg will probably be better in lane It definitely feels like it WOULD be a different source, but the way it's worded, it's giving the ability extra damage. "your damaging abilities cause enemy champions to take..." Also, I realize that it's a personal preference, but Kalista's an attack speed carry, and I like the idea of giving her flat bonus damage on her autoattacks, especially early game, rather than health over time and less damage taken. The summoner spells cooldown hurts, but Merciless has really nice synergy with rend. Hard time passing that up.
: I [tried to make a map](http://imgur.com/6WS3bSC) showing how you can lock down any half of the map (dragon/baron red/blue) with only 5 wards. It's not great, and its unlikely that there will be 5 pink wards out early game anyway, but its kinda a proof-of-concept.

It's not great, and its unlikely that there will be 5 pink wards out early game anyway, but its kinda a proof-of-concept. That's a good map. If a team relies on stealth, there is, however, always the possibility of fighting on the other side of the map or "simply" clearing the wards. (yes, you can't always clear the wards safely, but in those situations, you're kinda screwed...) I think that it's an idea that's at least worth a shot at playtesting. And I'm saying that as someone who's loved Evelynn since season 1. Terrifying the population of League into never leaving their turrets again would be bad. We do NOT want stealth champs to get "Eve'd" across the board.
: Mastery Order
It looks like they already made the change, but the text hasn't been moved yet.
: Runic Affinity & Secret Stash - mastery talk
I'm confused. I almost always see ADC's getting red buff at very important parts of the game, and using that buff and its slow to win teamfights. Add to that, the ability to stretch out the baron buff just a little while longer, and it seems very worth it.

: PBE testers AFKing
It's the test server. it's best to assume, especially this early into such a dramatic patch, that things are just going haywire.
: Rename the new skins from “Slayer” to “Survivor”
But then you'd have to change the name of the skin every time they get killed.
: [Bug] Ward Skins (TY RIOT FOR PUNISHING ME)
I'm pretty sure you're fine. They're not really going to ban you on the PBE for your first offense, especially considering it's the testing environment and not live.
