Context & Notes

1) Riot August provided some tentative Vi changes for this PBE cycle:
"Putting some Vi changes on the next PBE cycle for feedback. Please try them and tell me what you think. Do you want these? 
THESE ARE EXPERIMENTAL AND MAY NOT SHIP!
- Burst damage down (Q, R)
+ In fight tankiness WAY up (P)
+ AoE CC up (R)
+ Sustained DPS up (E change does a lot)"
[2] "Some notes: 
-The E follow up attack change will likely be a noticeable increase in DPS power (the spell was bugged with higher AS and was DPS down to use at times)
-Passive CDR change works vs. jungle.
-R AoE cc'ing the team you run through prolly increases surVIvability."
