Context & Notes

1) Here's Riot Phlox with a final changelist and context on Rengar changes coming in 12.6! These changes have been testing on the PBE for a few patches and are finally ready!
and the context from the rest of the tweets in the thread:
"This was a pretty difficult project since, in my opinion, Rengar has some pretty awkward mechanics right now especially with W and Passive. I think W not flowing into any assassination combo is a definite feels bad for a lot of his builds.  
"Same with the weird earflicks around Ferocity generation. It's very unforgiving and makes him very bush reliant (some of which is a good thing).  I think for both of these mechanics there's a better version out there, but they're not easy to get to and the cost is high.


"I settled on making sure I could get something out there that would make Rengar feel better to play rather than just keep sitting here hoping to find time to try to get some magical version of the character that might or might not actually be more fun. 


"There are still some bugs on PBE and some of the old ones haven't been fixed yet, I'll try to do a pass on them over the next few days. Do let me know if there are any other smaller sized feel-good changes I can slip in. I hope we're leaving Rengar in a better spot!


"Bonus: The Q crit changes are so that when playing low%  Crit Rengar you're not just yolo hoping for a crit to be successful, and left out to dry if you don't get that 20/40%. This also means we can tune crit builds directly, if they're shit we bump up the number and vice versa"
2) Here's Riot August with a changelist for Zeri tweaks that are now testing on the PBE:
"Zeri the carry's winrate is still scary
We're working on nerfs to make her more fair...i 
Lower overall damage and mobility
Shift damage out of base AD to decrease power with sheen
Shift armor scaling into health (makes her Passive shielding and HP purchases worse)"
