Continued VFX Tweaks

As Ahri and Udyr's VFX changes continue testing on the PBE, Riot Sirhaian noted further VFX tweaks:
"Based on player feedback, I tweaked Dynasty Ahri's VFXs a tiny bit. This sadly has to stay low scope so I can't do too much, but hopefully this will make this skin a bit more special. I've also added some small petals and lights in her custom dance. Kit video in the next tweet!" 
"Here's the small update to Dynasty Ahri's recolored VFXs. Added a subtle pink/red to her abilities and with some petals in her Q. I sadly can't do much more for this skin, but I hope it'll help make it a bit more special! It should be on PBE tomorrow. "
"Hiyo! I've added and polished some VFXs to Popstar Ahri. More details below!
Enjoy this lil gif of her new dance VFXs~ "
"Some of her VFXs were still from before the update so I cleaned them up a bit. I've added notes and music lines across the kit and updated her heal effect to match the other skins. I tried to match her splash art for her dance VFXs, while avoiding to make it look like an ability."

Miscellaneous 

  • New Nexus Blitz shopkeeper models added, Spirit Blossom themed Feather Knight and Melisma! Model viewer shots here [1 / 2 ]:
  • After feedback, Spirit Blossom Thresh has been updated to toggle between his forms. Here's Riot Caption OG with more:
[1] Got Thresh toggle working now. Which one will you choose? 
[2] For context, here is how his toggle works:  
*Collect the desired souls, right now 45, and ult to transform to human.
*By ulting, toggle is activated (Ctrl + 5). There will be a delay once you trigger a toggle.
*Toggle wont be active in combat.Once your out of combat, it activates"
  • Riot Eggo McLeggo also provided context on why they decided to change it:
[1] "Omar is the hero we need. The toggle between human and demon form is now working, let us know what you think! We always get a lot of questions about toggles so we're putting out an official response soon but here's a little TL;DR if you're curious: "
[2] "Just like any feature we add for a skin, toggles take time to develop and test. That doesn't mean we CAN'T make them but it means sometimes we'll choose to spend that time on something we think will mean more to players than the toggle. This is especially true if swapping"
[3]"back and forth doesn't really make sense for the champion + thematic's narrative. For Thresh we thought it fit really well and spoke to his power as a shapeshifting demon. In a lot of other cases, we haven't thought it made too much sense. It's a little bit of a rare situation."

Never one to leave anybody alone, ever, he has promised his BFF to prank them at every opportunity, every day, until they die and join him in the spirit realm. Good luck to them."
