Context & Notes

1) Squad5 provided a changelist for potential Akali changes this cycle:
"Putting in some Akali buffs for 9.5 (gonna be helping out on the balance team for a little while). Context is I'm looking for power increases that also feel like QoL improvements to make her mechanics more accessible for everyone. Hopefully she has to work less hard for results."
2) Riot August noted some changes coming for Exiled Morgana:
"Some of you may have already heard, but the team had some conversations and we're going to be recoloring the VFX on Exiled Morgana to better fit with the skin's color scheme, courtesy of @RiotLankyTree, her awesome VFX artist. ty all for the feedback."
