Riot, can you just stop with Diana nerfs? She is a melee champ who needs that bit of protection when she has to engage into fights. So please leave her alone.

"The Return of Yesterday's Patch - Almost

It looks like every change but one from yesterday's patch is back. However, our good old friend Galio did not make a return this time around! However TPA skins are back, all champion changes are back. so we should be good to go soon!"

It was explained.
Not a nerf, per say.

They've changed it so when the shield refreshes, it stacks.
Right now, Diana can proc her shield twice. Same w/ Lux.

However, the second time you proc the shield, it simply refreshes the shield.
So right now you get a .45x AP shield that can be refreshed. It's changed so you get a .3x AP shield, and when it refreshes it stacks and becomes a .6x AP shield.

Interpret it however you want. It's a buff and a nerf at the same time.

I think you should understand by now that Riot isn't really that good at deciding which champs to "balance."

So the shield will do less damage at the start compare to her current shield but it if refreshes it will provide more protection than now?
(P.S, thanks for letting me know-much appreciated)

This is actually good news. "Let's massacre a balanced champ's utility" doesn't sound good on paper, but this is hard to say whether it's a buff or a nerf. I assume when the second part of these shields are applied, the duration extends?

I say a job well done Riot, toning down Lux without affecting her damage but reducing the amount of utility she brings in a teamfight.

Also, it does sound like a buff/nerf depending on if her shield can be broken in time or not.
