Kha'Zix Base Visual Effects Update

Here's details from Beardilocks on an upcoming Kha'Zix VFX update:
"Hello Everyone! 
Riot Beardilocks here to bring you one more visual effect update. Similar to the previous VFX updates we’ve made in the past (Ziggs, Thresh, Lux, etc), we're working on updates to the Visual Effects (VFX) of more champions whose spell effects are in need of some love. In Patch 10.24, we'll be releasing a VFX Update for Kha'Zix 
Our goals for these sorts of smaller scope updates is to improve the overall gameplay clarity of vfx whilst bringing them up to modern League of Legends standards. This means that our efforts are primarily aimed at spells which do not clearly communicate the hitbox. Our goals are not to change the art direction for these skins or champions - those kinds of changes are reserved for full Visual + Gameplay updates (VGUs). 
As we've discussed before, since these are smaller updates geared toward sprucing up some of the oldest members of the roster, they aren't in the same prioritization conversation as to how we decide who gets a VGU (where we take model, gameplay, and thematic into account too!): they do not affect any other timeline, and are simply dev passion projects. 
We're looking for feedback on these VFX changes, which should be up on the PBE soon-ish. Please try them out there —especially if you're a main— and leave us your feedback once the changes are up! 
KHAZIX 
VFX Update aimed at modernizing this old champion's feel while improving his gameplay readability. We also took this opportunity to get a better look at the Void thematic's VFXs to better illustrate its modern representation in the Lore.
Base Kit:
  • P - Reduced the noise of the ring whilst bringing the target indicator into the void thematic better
  • BA - New swipes and hit effects.
  • Q - Reduced the noise of the hit effects, as well as how long they linger
  • W - Improved the colours of the missiles to fit better into the void thematic. Made sure the VFX matched the actual hitbox of the spell.
  • E - Reduced noise and ensured the VFX match the hitbox
  • R - Improved VFX when entering stealth. Changed VFX coming out of stealth to have more of a "destealthing" feel.
SKINS: 
Our approach when updating skins for Khazix was to keep changes minimal. Kha'zix's base VFX were significantly worse than any of his skins. As such, the skins were updated only to more clearly show the hitbox.

MECHA KHA'ZIX
Added vfx to show the range of W and E better 
GUARDIAN OF THE SANDS KHA'ZIX
Added vfx to show the range of W and E better 
DEATH BLOSSOM KHA'ZIX
Added vfx to show the range of W and E better 
DARK STAR KHA'ZIX
Added vfx to show the range of W and E better 
CHAMPIONSHIP KHA'ZIX
Adjusted W and E VFX to show the range better 
ODYSSEY KHA'ZIX
No changes"
