Fizz is Getting a Visual Update

Fizz is a slippery and annoying champion, but amidst the Udyr Rework, new Steel Valkyries skins, it seems like Riot is slippinng him in for a small visual rework. No big ASU here, just cleaning up his VFX a little... we're still waiting for that Ahri ASU Riot, don't forget.

This is a story that is old as time. A champion get's put onto the PBE server to get a bit of a fresh new look. Syndra received a VFX update, as well as Leona and Shaco too! Now it seems like it's finally Fizz' turn to make our heads turn with his new looks.

So, what does Riot have in store for this slippery Yordle, and what exactly is going to be changed on his kit? Well, his kit itself is going to stay the same, but the visual elements are going to be improved.

What is Riot Changing on Fizz' VFX?

Riot is working on making his abilities more visible. Especially his ultimate, which was hard to see. Many players hadn't even been able to see the fish being whipped their way before it was too late, and a giant shark came out of the ground to gobble them up.

But it isn't just his base which is going to be getting a Visual update, but his skins, especially the older ones, will be getting some love from Riot. If you're a Fizz main – why would you be though?! – you're able to give feedback to the VFX artist in the official feedback thread on Reddit.
