K/DA Akali Skin Tweaks

As noted by the LoLEU twitter, K/DA Akali has been updated to include her blacklight/glow paint when she is shrouded!
"We heard you loud and clear, and we've updated K/DA Akali's in-game model to show the neon/blacklight effect from the Popstar video! This will be available for free if you already own the K/DA Akali skin, and appears during her shroud" [Gif]

Runes

    • [Previously only the next basic attack could reward either gold or an item]
    • Captain Gameplay noted:
"the proc chances are lowered to compensate for 2 hits (you should get more value than before if you do both hits consistently, but less if you just hit once) 
also wards (green, Control, Blue) have been removed from the drop pool post 20 minutes so you don't just poot wards out in teamfights"
