One of League of Legends’ most popular midlane mages, Orianna is getting a major visual update to her base model as well as a host of her skins to modernize the Lady of Clockwork.
Riot Games has rolled out visual updates for countless League champions to both rejuvenate their jerseys and improve the visual indicators within the MOBA.
Season 12 has already brought major overhauls to champions like Vayne, Elise, and Vel’Koz, but Riot doesn’t stop there.
Next up is an update for Orianna, who is getting updates to both her classic skin and nearly a dozen of her available skins.
Orianna opts for a visual redesign of League
As with the updated champions before her, the visual changes to her abilities focus on making hitboxes clearer.
While Orianna’s auto-attack animation is now chunkier, most of the update looks to make the effects more noticeable around her ball.
The indicator below where her ball is placed is now a darker shade of blue, and when using Command: Dissonance, the hitbox is more colorfully defined.
Her most obvious change comes from her ultimate, Command: Shockwave, which now has a much larger display area.
Another cool effect to come with the VFX update was revealed by Riot Twin Enso, who showed off the new Tether indicator, showing how far Orianna needs to be when auto-retrieving the ball.
Orianna players rejoice! For her VFX update I added a tether indicator like Anivia R/Rell E which is much more accurate when you are far from ball. I wanted this change 10 years ago when I started playing Ori never thought I would be the one to add it 😀 pic.twitter.com/dJtvzNNahv

Orianna skins need to be updated
Eleven of Oris Skins will receive updates, many more than any other champion to date.
Here are all the skins that will be updated:
- heart seeker
- Dark Star
- blade skill
- winter wonder
- Stitched Chaos
- Pool Party (minor changes)
- Orbeeanna (minor changes)
Riot hasn’t said exactly when the update will hit live servers.
However, it is likely that the update could come with Patch 12.7, which will be released on April 12th.
