Context & Notes

1) Riot Captain Gameplay provided details on turret changes now testing on the PBE, as well as noted some of the item changes would be removed for further internal testing:

2) Make sure to check out Riot Scruffy's Quick Gameplay Thoughts for February 7th, including this blurb on Sunfire Cape changes testing this PBE cycle:
"Sunfire Cape Improvements 
Sunfire currently is a bit underpowered, giving us the opportunity to buff it in ways that improve the tank experience in the late game. Damage focused classes scale up with items in a way that speeds up and eases their farming patterns, while tanks still can struggle to clear even after multiple items. Our current changes in testing are: 
Immolate burn is increased by 1.5% of the wearers bonus HP for 4 seconds after you apply an immobilizing (same rule as fiora W) crowd control to an enemy"
