- "With NLR being at such a high price + AP point, it means that any item that builds from it needs to have greater than 100 AP (when combined with any other AP item) or just be functionally weird (can you imagine upgrading an NLR to a full item and getting no additional AP?). Reducing NLR's cost and total AP means we have a little more design space to balance AP items, although this does have larger implications for mid lane purchase timings."
