"We are currently working on adding both the main gun and off-hand gun to Aphelios's UI, we are targeting this change for 10.4 as well as making his ult VFX more readable in-game" 


2) Captain Gameplay provided a full changelist for Phase Rush changes now testing on the PBE (seen originally in 2/4 PBE Update):
"this changelist seems semi scuffed
