Context & Notes

1) ricklessabandon noted a change for Syndra that should be on the PBE this week:
"won't show up on the pbe until next week probably, but putting in a straightforward syndra change targeted for the 8.9 patch 
unsure if we'll need to adjust anything around this, but i don't expect to change much else unless it proves necessary"
2) Riot Repertoir provided a changelist of tentative changes for Azir in the AzirMains discord. No details when we will see these changes coming to the PBE, but for now here is a preview:
