Context & Notes

1) Riot Scruffy provided changelists for patch 10.2:
"10.2 Patch Preview with a few additions. We have some work in flight for akali in 10.3 as well, but she's not in this list."

2) Riot Lutzburg provided a changelist for Wukong on the PBE, and noted they are looking into Clone bugfxes:
[1] Wukong PBE Update
[2] "We're looking into the Wukong Clone XP bug. It's a tricky one, so no ETA on a fix just yet. In the meantime, try to avoid letting your clone take the last-hit on jungle camps on PBE."
Riot Lutzburg also tweeted we should see different values on PBE Wukong's Q damage ap next pbe patch:
"Experimenting with different values for Wukong's Q damage amp (5-25% from 10-20%).  Goal being to reduce his lane power slightly while amping his late game damage (especially for bruisers) since % damage scales stronger over game time/gold.  Available next PBE deploy."
As well as changes for his W:
"One more Wukong change: W CD adjusted to 22/20/18/16/14 from 24/21/18/15/12 
Trying to let him use his most iconic ability in lane phase a bit more often, while still giving opponents a clear window of vulnerability to exploit. Late game with CDR he becomes a very dashy boy"
