Context & Notes

1) Squad5 with some Ornn changes coming sometime this cycle:
"We're putting in some Ornn defensive base stat buffs for 9.2 to help his laning phase out. I have some ideas for a little more interesting buffs that I'll be testing for a later patch as well, so stay tuned for that (not as crazy as the W change though, promise)."
