Minor El Tigre Braum Updates

While they may be hard to spot, his mask was brightened and several bits of clothing received minor color changes  including his boots and belt.
Interesting in a look at his visual effects? Check out our earlier PBE coverage!

Mass VFX Rebalancing

Here's Keyserito with info on the mass visual effect rebalancing that is currently testing on the PBE:

"Hey guys. Jason "Riot Keyserito" Keyser here. Once we saw old champ abilities on the updated Summoner's Rift, those of us on the VFX team decided to make some fidelity tweaks. So we made a sweep of all the champs in the game, making moderate to tiny adjustments on various (not all) abilities. 
If you notice champion ability effects displaying improperly on PBE, please let us know! If you notice any of the newly updated vfx, you get my heartfelt wink & nod!"

Updated Item Icons

Each of the new jungle icons has received slight tweaks to their icons

Stalker's Blade
[NEW vs OLD]

Poacher's Knife
[NEW vs OLD]

Ranger's Trailblazer
[NEW vs OLD]

Skirmisher's Sabre

The Devourer Enchantment also has a substantially more fabulous buff bar icon.

Looks like both Katarina and Varus have had their files restructured. Nothing tangible has changed about them in-game but if you see "new" files for them this is why.

Balance Changes
