Don't get me wrong I'm not ranting, I'm just trying to sarcastically point to those inconsistencies. They really bug me - You can look at Thornmail and you'll know what it does:
It's armor, it gives resistances - check
It has thorns, it hurts you when you touch it - check (sorta)
Name and item-design match so well - Why would you break this principle just because you want to recycle an item there?

So, just a humble request: Please not only update the visuals, have an eye on those items which match/don't match their icon and adjust those accordingly.
That's actually a great point. Definitely something to think about going forward. Thanks for the feedback!

But two books will ALWAYS build into a gun.
If consistency is a goal, it should really only be done with "dead-end" items.

They won't because that might cause controversy.

Because there is this thing called "tact" and professional/polite people use it.

For instance if your girlfriend gets a new hairdo and you think it looks like **** about the worst you will say is "It's just so different but I'm sure it will grow on me". Absolute truth is not always the right way to go.

Well if we're pleasing our chinese overlords can we use the chinese splash arts too? Specifically for Freljord Ashe? Why was that ever changed. The one we have looks like **** compared to that one.

Agreed. I'm happy to see more than just Champs getting VUs, and can't wait to see some of my other favorite items get a new look. I just hope balance considers the effort involved.

Fair thee well Bulwark icon our time was short, but our love is eternal. ;-;
