Champion Update: Maokai
By Conor 'fizzNchips' Sheehy 
the latest champ to go into the champion update workshop, and has come out the other end with some fancy new bark to wear on all of his skins!
Just like, Maokai's rig was in a fairly good spot while the rest of his look was a bit... well... old. So we changed it up, updating his model, textures, spell effects, and a few of his animations on his base model and each of his skins!
- Sap Magic
Maokai's basic attacks periodically heal him.cooldown is reduced for each spell Maokai casts or is struck by.
- Bramble Smash
- Twisted Advance
Maokai transforms into a moving mass of roots, dashing to and rooting his target.
- Sapling Toss
Saplings placed in brush last longer and deal additional damage over time.
