TFT set 6.5 continues testing this cycle! Here's Riot Mort with today's changelist and a quick note:
"Today's deploy notes. As promised it's mostly focused on bug fixes. Our branch cut is today (lock changes so we can begin the process of getting it to live servers) so not much left. Last big batch of changes you can expect would be next Tuesday right before live."
CHAMPS
1 Cost
-Ziggs
---AD: 50 >>> 55

AUGMENTS

BUGFIXES

-Cybernetic mutant variation bonus now turns off immediately when items are removed

-Mastermind VFX no longer stick around for eternity
-Scrap will now properly filter out items like Morello and Gunblade for physical units like Ezreal and Irelia

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."

2) Here's the latest from the r/LeaguePBE feedback threads:

Shockblade Kassadin:
"Post PBE Update:

- Enhanced VFX on W activation

- Enhanced VFX on E"
"Post PBE Update:

- Tweaked Q VFX to have more thundery elements

- Adjusted 3D model to better fit Qiyana's silhouette https://imgur.com/NMRZCZA"
"Post PBE Update:
