Context & Notes

1) Riot Phlox provided a changelist for 12.4 balance:
"Hello hello!

12.4 with content is here, some spicy changes for sure.

To note, these are some quicker changes to pull down the support item top meta. I don't expect these to be the last of the changes in the space, but any larger ones need more time to validate."
He added:
"We adjusted Neeko's hitbox to not be tied for largest in the game, should be similar to most other mages!"
