"8/10 - A couple Fizz VFX updates based off the feedback we've received. Should be on the next PBE deploy:
  • The brief disappearance of Fizz' shark during the ult has fixed for all the base skins and Void. :partyshark:
  • Base Fizz' Basic Attack VFX have been made more noticeable.
  • Fisherman Fizz W indicator is now a Spatula!
  • Added small cracks to Void Fizz' E
  • Increased the brightness of Fizz' trident during W for Omega Squad Fizz"
