Context & Notes

1) Riot KateyKhaos tweeted changes the QA team is looking into for Coven LeBlanc and Zyra:
[1] Hello! I'm QA for Coven Zyra (regular) and Coven LeBlanc! We're going through feedback now and are so far looking to address: 
- Colorblind concerns with LeBlanc's ulted vs normal spell VFX
- Emptiness of Zyra's ult (add more VFX!)
(Splash feedback has been passed along.)  
[2] We are pretty locked on keeping Zyra's plant models as is, per design requests. We went through several iterations to keep them looking different enough in both shape and color (and to be visible for coorblind players) and after 2-3 tries, received design sign off.
[3] Also looking into:
- Toning down the red on LeBlanc's model.
- Adding green to LeBlanc's feathers on her model.
- Adding some flowers to Zyra's Q.
Here's videos from Riot Flan & Riot KateyKhaos showing off the changes already made that will be on the PBE soon:
