"📢Attn: Shan Hai Scroll skins release date correction! There was an error in the 11.2 patch notes, and the actual release date is set for Thursday Jan. 28th after 1pm PST. Apologies for the miscommunication and thanks for your understanding!😅"

2) RiotPhlox noted on reddit that today's Goredrinker change is a typo and should be 8% not 80%

"You know you'd think I'd be better at putting in numbers but 0.8 is not 0.08. Fixed for next deploy lmao.
