Context & Notes

1) Here's a few updates noted on the feedback threads for the skins on the PBE this cycle:

"EDITED WITH FEEDBACK RESPONSE 9th March 2021 
Bugs & fixes:
- SFX on E will be increased.
- Earrings warp will be fixed. Thanks for catching that!
Feedback: 
- Homeguards will not be added as it is not included on the Battle Academia current wave. It is out of scope for 1350 skins team. Homeguards were added in the first wave due to scope creep and we apologize for the inconsistency. Wukong's homeguard was added as a quality of life improvement on the previous skin. Hence, that is why it was maintained.
- We understand that a lot of you loved the horns and thought it was an iconic look. Unfortunately, horns are not listed or recognized as a primary read for Yone's silhouette. 
Thanks all! See you on the rift."
Battle Academia Wukong
"Post PBE cycle edit: 
Hair color had been adjusted and made more saturated."
Battle Academia Leona
"Post PBE cycle edit: 
We adjusted her lips color to better match what you can see on the splash art."
Battle Academia Leona Prestige Edition
"Post PBE cycle edit: 
We adjusted hands color to make it feel more natural."
Battle Academia Garen
"Post PBE cycle edit: 
The team did decide to not make design changes to the skin."

Battle Academia Caitlyn

"UPDATE: 
During the PBE cycle we have addressed some outstanding bugs as well as addressed the feedback in regards to Battle Academia Caitlyn's walk cycle to address the concerns listed here in the thread! Thank you so much for your time in leaving the feedback and we appreciate all the notes you have given."

 Battle Academia Chromas

"Post-PBE cycle note: 
- We decided to not make notable changes"
2) Riot Scruffy provided a balance changelist for 11.6:
"11.6 Patch Preview with the tentative changes. 
Some of these are still probably getting some small adjustments but it's nearly done. Thanks for the feedback so far."
