Continued Nexus Blitz Testing

Nexus Blitz continues its extended PBE testing run this cycle! Here's Riot Lowbo with a changelist for today's update:
Hello everybody! Here's a list of design-related changes going into today's PBE build. Because of Friday's redeploy, some of these changes were in over the weekend. 
Design Changes
  • Elder Dragon reward duration 240s >>> 120s
  • Killing Rift Herald now grants your team Baron buff for 120 seconds (note that you don’t gain the bonus AD/AP, just the minion buffs)
  • Walking Nexuses are ghosted and ignore collision until they reach the middle of the map
  • Deathfire Grasp, Ghostwalkers, Zephyr, and Moonflair Spellblade added to the item shop
Bugfixes
  • Scuttle Crab shrine now properly grants movement speed
  • Players should not be able to override the neutral cannons’ target locations by firing the cannon within 0.3 seconds
  • Players will no longer be able to gain On Fire by killing clones
  • Yuumi W will be cleared at the start of Prize Fight
  • Sion E will no longer knock back Loot Teemo, Loot Veigar, and Scuttle Racer as if they were minions
  • Fixed an issue where surrenders weren’t working
  • Fixed a further issue where Chaos team would win the game upon surrendering"

Context & Notes

1) Riot Scruffy provided a patch preview for 10.14 balance changes:
"10.14 Patch Preview here. Some changelists are in but I'll have the full list from the team tomorrow. 
Worth noting - ghost and predator are here as followups from our last round of changes which ended up slightly nerfing them."

He added:
"Oops, missing one addition - Riven on the buff list"
2) Here's RiotPhlox with a changelist for Karthus now testing on the PBE:
"Current Karthus list you'll see on PBE whenever it next deploys. Currently making sure it's the right size of buffs and nerfs and hitting what we want to hit (probably will change). W changes will continue to be tested internally but no guarantees!"
