Context & Notes

1) Riot Scruffy provided the tentative changelists for balance this cycle:
10.4 Patch preview with tentative changes:
He also provided a full Soraka changelist:
"Soraka changes here for 10.4. Targets are major nerfs to top with no change for support."

2) Here's Riot August with a list of tentative Lux buffs aimed at 10.4:
[1]"Small Lux buffs we're planning to ship for next patch: 
Q Damage: 70-250 (+.7 AP) >>> 80-260 (+.6) Cooldown: 13-9 >>> 11-9 
R Lux can flash while casting R (similar to Ezreal) 
Goal is to give her better lane control in mid and support. Thanks
@YozuLoL for the R suggestion."
 [2] "Feedback about better E Cooldown or mana cost is heard. Would likely be the first place I look if she has more room for buffs in the future. We'll see how this patch settles."
