Short lore entry:

"Outside the gleaming city of Demacia, the stone colossus Galio keeps vigilant watch. Built as a bulwark against enemy mages, he often stands motionless for decades until the presence of powerful magic stirs him to life. Once activated, Galio makes the most of his time, savoring the thrill of a fight and the rare honor of defending his countrymen. But his triumphs are always bittersweet, for the magic he destroys is also his source of re-animation, and each victory leaves him dormant once again."

Longer introduction over on the Universe page as well as a short story about him waking up.

LoL Patch 7.6 Balance Changes

That out of the way, let’s start with the really important bit, shall we? What you need to remember is that stuff on the PBE like this is neither guaranteed to happen, nor to be in the next patch even if it does. This is what the folks over at Riot are thinking about doing. We’ve got the numbers on what’s changing, and a general guideline on which way each champion, item, mastery, summoner spell or rune is moving.

Patch 7.6 Champion Changes

Aatrox - buffed

Aatrox balance changes

  • Blood Well (Passive)
    • Triggered effect renamed to "Hellbent"
    • When revived, Blood Well will now be set to 100%
    • Revive will no longer reset the hit counter on Blood Price/Thirst - example situation.
  • These changes were hotfixed to live on March 10.
  • Base health increased to 580 from 537.8
  • Dark Flight (Q):
    • Cooldown decreased to 13/12.5/12/11.5/11 from 16/15/14/13/12 
  • Blood Thirst/Blood Price (W):
    • Damage increased to 45/80/115/150/185 from 30/60/90/120/150 

Cho'gath - buffed

Cho'Gath balance changes

  • Feast (R):
    • Bonus health per stack increased to 80/120/160 from 80/110/140 
    • Total stacks able to be gained from minions/non-epic monsters increased to 6 from 5 

Fiddlesticks - buffed

Fiddlesticks balance changes

  • Terrify (Q):
    • Range increased to 575 from 525 
  • Drain (W):
    • Will refund cooldown equal to remaining duration if target dies.

Gnar - changed

  • Stats - HP Regen:
    • Mini and Mega forms now both have 0.9 + 0.35 growth, from lower and higher points respectively.
  • Crunch (Mega E):
    • Bug-fix-ish change that allows spells to be queued properly mid-Crunch.

Miss Fortune - buffed

Miss Fortune balance changes

  • Double Up (Q):
    • Damage increased to 20/40/60/80/100 from 20/35/50/65/80
    • Total AD ratio increased to 100% from 85%
    • Double Up cast range now changes with MF's attack range.
    • No longer a brief pause after cast.
  • Make It Rain (E):
    • No longer a brief pause after cast.

Quinn - changed

Quinn balance changes

  • Heightened Sense (W):
    • Harrier attack speed bonus increased to 20/35/50/65/80% from 20/25/30/35/40% 
  • Behind Enemy Lines (R):
    • Total AD ratio decreased to 40% from 100% 
    • Now respawns as Valor after deaths for the rest of the game once at least one point is in R.

Varus - nerfed

Varus balance changes

  • Piercing Arrow (Q):
    • Blight stack detonation effect no longer takes CDR into account.

Patch 7.6 Summoner Spell Changes

Teleport - changed

  • Teleport will look for nearby valid teleport targets when you cast it. No longer requires precise targeting on a mid-fight ward.
  • To protect against fat fingering or accidental casts, this only applies if the target location is 2000+ units away. This is a bit under double the range of Caitlyn's headshot for comparison.
  • No longer buffers spells during teleport
  • These changes are experimental, and likely to remain in testing until 7.7, according to a post from Riot.

Patch 7.6 Mastery Changes

Warlord's Bloodlust buffed

  • Now heals for 3-40% of your total AD, amplified by critical strikes, rather than giving you lifesteal.

Patch 7.6 Jungle Changes

Red Brambleback

Red Brambleback

  • Magic resist decreased to [10/15/18/19/20 at 1/3/5/7/8] from [15/20/26/29/30 at 1/4/8/9/10] 

LoL Patch 7.6 New Skins

Second most important: cosmetics. Lovely, gorgeous cosmetics. Bit more of a visual medium this, so we’ve grabbed the best videos of each skin, as well as a lovely pic or two. Some are relatively simple changes, while others are total reworks of every part of the champion outside the gameplay numbers - new VO, new animations, new particles and the rest. It’s generally defined by how much they cost, so we’ve detailed that as well.

Patch 7.7 Lee Sin Skin Tease

The above skin teaser is being posted around Riot social media channels. It will likely be unveiled fully when patch 7.7 hits the PBE tomorrow, and looks to be a high-quality Lee Sin skin.

LoL Patch 7.6 Login Screen

Each patch has its own login screen with unique music. They're always fairly excellent, and 7.6's is no exception. It's based around Galio's newer, sexier form:

LoL Patch 7.6 Champion Select Visual Update

Subscribe to PCGamesN on YouTube

As you can see in the above vid from [email protected], with more details in their post, there's been an update to how the map looks during champion select. The opposing side of the map will now be darkened, among other small changes.

Mystery Urgot Assets

As part of the initial version of patch 7.6 that hit the PBE, some mystery Urgot assets were uncovered. They were quickly removed in updates following, and Riot hasn't said anything about them. Smart money would suggest it's part of his rework, as noted by [email protected], who also have the relevant images.

That's League of Legends patch 7.6. We'll update as and when we get more info, or we'll see you for patch 7.7 in the very near future. Let us know below if there's any vital info we missed!

Think it's a bit random as to when they decide to test them - basically whether they have one planned for that cycle or not. I'll have another check today and add a section if there is.
