Context & Notes

1) Riot August provided an updated changelist for Kayle in today's PBE Update:
"Feedback on the initial Kayle changelist's laning seems generally positive (she's more fun), but a number of concerns about lower AA range and an inability to carry late game have come up. 
Trying a list that gives something back @ 16 (more AA range). Will be on PBE tomorrow 8/1"
2) Dankyart also noted that Dragonslayer Pantheon would soon see some tweaks to his shoes:
"Dragonslayer Panth boots incoming "
