Aphelios' base skin has 147 unique FX, Riot says

From the tornado spouting out of Yasuo’s Q, to the indicator on Ziggs ultimate, these are various examples of how Riot Games incorporates VFX into champions. Each visual is carefully crafted to suit a champions’ traits, give definition to skills, and wow players with stunning effects.
