Context & Notes

1) Rornation noted some run animations would be going out with patch 8.24:
"League players! Some of the movement animation updates should live next patch 8.24. Karma, Viktor, Shaco, Alistar (E), Fiora. Had issues with Quinn's @Xenogenic is looking into. Will keep you informed on our progress as it happens, hoping to get others in soon. #LeagueOfLegends"
2) Here's Riot Maple Nectar with details on changes this cycle:
[1] "We're back from the long weekend, and now that we've seen roughly a week of games on 8.23 we have our main targets for 8.24. 
Dark Harvest (Lower base damage, can't proc off procs)
Viktor (top focus)
[2] "The way our dev cycle works including translation time for all regions, you're unlikely to see much in the way of mechanics changes, but for some folks like Akali and Irelia we're planning more followup work after we've done some tuning on 8.24."
[3] "@RiotMeddler is going to go into more detail on the changes on Wednesday in his Quick Gameplay Thoughts. One more reminder that we'll be doing an additional patch "8.24b" before we leave for the holidays, so this isn't it before the end of the year!"
