Vel’Koz gets visual overhaul in League Season 12 update
Riot Games are visually updating The Eye of the Void Vel’Koz early in League of Legends Season 12, with a focus on making his hitboxes more accurate and giving his spells a bit more shine.
League of Legends developer Riot Games has steadily been introducing VFX updates to some of the older champions in the long-running MOBA.
We’ve seen visual updates for Varus, Vayne, Sona, and a handful of others in Riot’s quest to improve clarity with abilities on Summoner’s Rift.
Now, it’s Vel’Koz’s time to shine as his base skin and other cosmetics are getting some love.

This includes an update to make his E projectile more visible and his recall animation more “modern-void.”
Also updated is his iconic ultimate ability, Life Form Disintegration Ray, which now has a more defined center and clearer outer hitbox.
