Crest of Cinders (Red Buff)
[Missed in a previous update / Context]
  • No longer does true damage to turrets

Context & Notes

1) Riot Repertoir provided context on the Red buff changes:
"Yeah. We're testing having red buff no longer apply to turrets, under the main premise that it contributes too heavily to successful early ganks resulting in turrets dropping 100-0."
2) AzuBK provided context and a changelist for LeBlanc:
"LeBlanc is feeling on the weak side right now, especially in early lane due to lack of lane control (having trouble finding windows for aggression). Looking to address that through non-damage changes if possible. Also right now RQ is dominating Mimic choice structure. CL below"
"W Cooldown :: 18/16/14/12/10 >>> 14/13/12/11/10 W 
Mana :: 80/90/100/110/120 >>> 60/75/90/105/120 
RE Initial Damage :: 60/120/180 (+0.3 AP) >>> 70/140/210 (+0.4 AP) 
RE Root Damage :: 120/240/360 (+0.6 AP) >>> 140/280/420 (+0.8 AP) 
RW AP Ratio :: 0.6 >>> 0.75"
"Also sorted out the range indicator mismatch on E vs RE"
3) Riot August with context on Rengar changes in today's PBE update:
"Rengar got weaker in 8.6 due to duskblade nerfs, but I'm choosing not to buff him all that much for 8.7 (just +3 AD @ level 1) mostly due to the incoming Tabi nerfs (which I'm assuming will help him quite a bit). 
Team still working on a fix for deaggro bug. It's complicated..."
