- Elise's play rate has shot up a lot given the changes to her in 5.12 and the addition of Runeglaive. That's resulted in a lot of struggling players which has depressed her average performance.
- Given that combination of factors we're holding off on Elise changes for 5.13 and instead taking another patch cycle to assess her state.
- We will however be buffing Elise in 5.14 unless we start seeing her perform significantly better in 5.13 than in 5.12.
