The Return of Graves' Cigar

Following Tryndamere's mysterious tweet, new portrait and loading screen assets depicting Graves with his cigar have been added.

For a quick history lesson, back in 2014 Graves got an updated splash art. That updated splash art originally included a cigar in Graves' mouth but was later removed. The new assets in today's update are in addition to the "cigar less" default versions. Each of these files is labeled "Graves_Square_Tobacco".

Context & Notes

and that's the bottom context because stone wip said so

1) Riot Lovestrut  posted in the Dark Star Kha'Zix PBE feedback thread regarding a few common questions and concerns on the the upcoming skin.

2)  The previously seen Dark Star Thresh Summoner's Rift announcer pack has been enabled for testing in SR games on the PBE.  See the server status page for more information, they will likely update the status when it is removed.

3) Reav3 noted Haunted Maokai's splash will also have some changes but is not finished yet and should be out next patch :
"It did. It should be out next patch though. Not finished yet"
