Context & Notes

1) Riot Scruffy provided a changelist for healing reduction items in 11.6:
"Testing round 2 of systemic healing reduction for 11.6 
In some cases this will be nerfs but in others it will be shifting stats keeping power neutral 
Hopefully this is the last set of these and we can be in a good state where healing is a notable choice and not a baseline"
He also previewed 11.6 balance:
"Patch Preview for 11.6. Includes:  
-Systemic healing reduced 
-Xin Zhao mini upgrade 
-And the usual targeting of outliers (strong and weak)"

2) While it's not yet on the PBE, the splash art for Battle Academia Leona Prestige Edition was shown off on social media:
"Battle Academia Leona Prestige Edition -- she's ready to ace the test (and the enemy team)💯✨"
