VFX Updates for Amumu, Lulu, Tryndamere and Ziggs

Hello everyone! Similar to the previous VFX updates we’ve made in the past (*Kennen, Olaf, Wukong, etc*), we're working on updates to the Visual Effects (VFX) of more champions whose spell effects are in need of some love. Our aim is to get their FX to current League standards and improve gameplay clarity. In Patch **9.12**, we'll be releasing VFX updates for **Amumu**, **Lulu**, **Tryndamere** and **Ziggs**. *Just like the previous ones, and since these are smaller updates geared toward sprucing up some of the oldest members of the roster, they aren't in the same prioritization conversation as to how we decide who gets a VGU (where we take model, gameplay, and thematic into account too!): they do not affect any other timeline, and are more of a side project.* We're looking for feedback on those changes, which should be up on the PBE now. Please try them out there —especially if you're a main— and leave us your feedback! ------- >####{{champion:32}} **_~~AMUMU~~_**{{champion:32}} *VFX Update aimed at reinforcing his Shuriman thematic and improving his gameplay clarity. Also tried to get as close as possible to his music video’s style.* https://imgur.com/6jShE38 https://youtu.be/KnNnsP7yY4M ##*Kit:* * **BA** - New impacts * **Q** - Added a subtle effect to show the width of the missile.
