Texture Rebalances

Today's patch includes a new set of texture rebalances for Taric and Warwick, plus a few skins for Janna and Cho'Gath. Remember that texture rebalances are aimed at updating older champion & skin textures to match the current art style and are not meant to replace future visual updates.

Over on reddit, Ququroon posted a reminder on texture rebalances and Taric:
"They're more akin to bandaid fixes. Short term changes that are more focused on improving the baseline quality across the whole game, rather than fixing all of the needs of a specific champion. 
We're still working on Taric. He just provides challenges on balancing the different opinions everyone has on him."
