Context & Notes

1) Riot Scruffy provided an update on the Wukong rework that has been testing on the PBE:
[1] Wukong update: re-focusing the goals and @RiotAugust is picking up the work to get it shipped in a patch soon  
-Add a new tool to be tricky and clever
-Shift power from mid into top/jungle  
We think there's a lot of value getting him back top/jungle where more players want him 
[2] We also don't expect to fully destroy mid Wukong, just make it more even with the other roles. 
[3] Also, based on other high priority VGU projects getting the focus of our art resources, we're wanting to ship changes without much visual change so that we can get the new gameplay out there
2) Here's Riot August with a list of tentative Lux changes now testing on the PBE!
[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."
