You said this regarding Evelynn: "She's still a priority, and being slowly burned on". Should we take this to mean that we CAN actually expect an Evelynn update in the future? Even if not short term? It's been so disheartening watching her get passed over for work for so long :(

I know. :c
You can and you should expect an Evelynn update. She's a bit lower on priority because she's somewhat cobbled a bit of an update together over time. Kit, VFX, animation, and most recently her textures, have all been updated over the years. Not the best, sure, but it still puts her ahead of the worst of the worsts.
However, c'mon man. She would be so much cooler if her theme was fleshed out.

The answer hasn’t got any rewards yet.
