Overall I'd be curious whats riots opinion about the kinkou trio in general.
I mean most champs are meant to look different from each other and their current way of making champs is to make it so,that each champ delivers a "different fantasy" meaning everyone more or less has their own unique aspects thematically.

the kinkou trio however is different in that aspect,all 3 of them are ninjas(sure there is zed too,but zed doesn't look like a traditional ninja and stands out due to his shadow powers).
I mean ok kennen has this whole electricity thing going on,no other champ is so focused on electricity like kennen,so I could see them pushing the whole "electric"-champ thing a bit more for kennen to make him stand out.

The question is what they'll do with akali(or shen),I mean garen is more or less THE knight of the game,so maybe shen could be THE ninja,but that'd leave akali(ok she is a kunoichi,but thats just the female version of the ninja),maybe they could do something with her weapon?I mean right now it is kinda weird that she is an ap champ despite using physical weapons and her smoke screen doesn't look like a smoke screen at all,maybe that are aspects where something more unique could be added to her character

Why? She just got a buff when S4 started with all the stealth vision nerfs. Now you have to spend 100 gold and not have a full build just to see her.

Or you could spend 475 gold once and never have trouble with shroud again.
While also obtaining the most useful of the three trinkets.


Anywho, as to the topic, I do wanna see a VU.
But not one that changes too much. Make her ponytail look more realistic, make it so that there're gems in her kama that glow so's her hands don't have to(And make the glow more visible the more AP/AD she has), make it so that she throws her weapons when dancing, make it so that when MoTA is on cooldown one of her kama are missing, and then all the normal animation updates.

I don't think she'll be up for anything anytime in the immediate future. She has some pretty janky things in her model (bad deformation, noodle arms, etc) but overall she's not *that* bad. I think she's actually pretty distinct as a character. She would however benefit quite a bit from a texture update and some geometry tweaking to make sure her elbows, knees and ankles bend appropriately. To my knowledge we could address those with some rig changes.

That'd be RiotSilver's domain. Not sure where she stands on a splash update.

neither Caitlyn is that bad but she's in line for a V.U. How does that work again?

How bout Ezreal? He's kind of in the same boat as Akali.
