Ezreal rework: W changes, skins and more

It’s not a big rework, but it’s still a nice one

Riot Games

Ezreal’s rework has been fully revealed and while his kit changes aren’t much at all, he’s got a bit of a new look. Even calling it new might be too gratuitous. He still looks the same, but his models (and splash art?) have all been completely redone, modernizing his design.

Kit

The only thing really being changed with Ezreal is his W. Before it was a pretty simple skill shot that involved raising attack speed of allies and hurting enemies. It always fell a bit flat in his kit and felt like a weird and bad version of his powerful Q.

Riot gave us Ezreal’s new W via e-mail and now it’s much better.

W - Essence Flux

Ezreal fires an orb that sticks to the first champion, large monster, or objective hit.

Hitting the orb with an ability or attack detonates it, dealing magic damage that scales with ability power and bonus attack damage. Detonating the orb with an ability refunds the mana cost of that ability plus an additional 60 mana.

Skins

Some of his skins are getting completely new splash art and some are just getting a smidgen of changes. Star Guardian Ezreal isn’t getting a new splash art at all, it seems.
