Next League of Legends champion Naafiri receives ability updates before patch 13.14

Riot Games developers have adjusted the next League of Legends champion Naafiri's abilities on PBE servers coming into patch 13.14. The complete list of changes was posted on RiotRaptorr's Twitter.

After initial testing, the balancing team adjusted some animations, gave Naafiri more mana, and made changes to her passive, E and Q, reducing her waveclear.

Her waveclear is quite a bit above where we would like it to be. She's currently one-shotting casters almost by level 5. We want her farm and waveclear to be effective, and think it will be even with these nerfs. This also gives us a new tuning lever to adjust waveclear without hurting her PvP poke, which we think is in a good spot.
