Yay, Vayne buffs! And the changes to MF look good too, hopefully we can see more AD carry variety rather than the 3 we usually see now.

Invisible skillshots, minion pathing, limited edition runes where?

Then again, I doubt the pros at the championship will need to use discount runes >.>

But what about us?

Edit:
Rengar no longer loses his attack command after using Battle Roar

Nice, but what about it happening like 20-40% of the time with Xin Zhao Q, W, GP W/E, and many other abilities, mostly PB-self targeted/PBAoE?
