  • Champion visual update
    • Grohk is receiving a full visual update this patch. We wanted to make sure that our favorite lightning wielding, blue orc got the respect he deserves and brought up to date with our current champion lineup. As part of his visual update we reworked him to fit with our current character standards, tech, and best practices which not only improves his visual quality but also should help with some performance optimizations and make him a better candidate for future skins. Grohk’s base appearance, weapon, and totem have all been updated to reflect this change and put him more in line with the lore and visual style of the game.
