Context & Notes

1) Meddler noted a hotfix for Aatrox planned to go out soon:
"Aiming to get an Aatrox hotfix buff out soon. Probably later today, possibly tomorrow. Not 100% yet, likely includes a bit of E range, E AA reset, some Q damage."

Updated Spellblade VFX on PBE 

Here's Riot King Cobra with the details on updated Spellblade VFX now testing on the PBE:
"Hi everybody! We’re here with a visual update to some of our older item effects in League. 
There are new VFX for the Spellblade passive on Sheen, Iceborn Gauntlet, Trinity Force, and Lich Bane on PBE. We want to maintain the current readability, but get these effects to better match League’s current art style. 
You can check them out in some images below! (Old on left and new on right) 
Sheen / Trinity Force
Lich Bane
Iceborn Gauntlet
Do these still read as the same buffs to you? Are the new buffs as noticeable as the ones on Live? Do they feel cleaner and clearer than the Live versions? We'd love to hear your thoughts!"
