Ahri is a well-known champion in League of Legends. She has a large fan following and a slew of cosmetics to her credit. Riot appears to be committed to the champion and providing Ahri players with what they have requested an ASU upgrade.
Several redesigned splash arts, ability icons, and teasers for the Ahri ASU have been patched into League’s PBE, but neither they nor the champion’s new model have been made publicly accessible for testing. According to SkinSpotlights on Twitter, just a few splash arts for Ahri’s abundance of skins have been significantly altered, with the rest featuring modest changes based on the champion’s new appearance.
Ahri ASU on League PBE
New abilities icon
Ahri’s ability icons have been modified somewhat to better reflect how they appear in-game currently. All of these icons give her a more mystical sense, and they look quite polished when scaled down.
New splash arts
For the time being, we only know of a handful of skins that are getting splash art updates. Some are modest adjustments, such as expressions. However, a couple of them, such as Midnight, have been totally redesigned.
Each portrays the updated graphics of the champion, highlighting her face and tails, while bringing them into line with the splashes of the more current skins.
A video of the abilities in action with her revised basic skin was also shared by SkinSpotlights. While all of her skills remain the same, they now feature additional mystical effects when cast, such as eerie lights and hazy trails. When performing her ultimate, Spirit Rush, Ahri now floats as well.
It is unknown when Ahri’s ASU will be live on League’s servers, or when it will be released for testing on the PBE. However, the presence of these assets suggests that the ASU will go to the players’ mind sooner or later.
