Context & Notes

1) Lowbo provided context on the Spear of Shojin changes in today's PBE update:
"Yeah, the thought is that without the cap, the item is either balanced on most of the cast and overpowered on Jhin/Rengar etc, or balanced on those champs and weak on everybody else. The cap allows us to make sure the item is strong on a wide variety of champs."
