Context & Notes

1) Riot Jag noted some upcoming Aatrox changes in the 9.9 PBE cycle:
[1] Been working with SR team to have some major Aatrox changes coming in for 9.9, with the primary goals being to buff him for normal play while dropping his power in professional play. Mainly going about this by drastically reducing power in the revive, which should drop his 
[2] ability to tower dive in coordinated environments and also prevent him from having so many safe matchups.
Can't promise any of this ships, but here's what we're looking at right now. We might have to drop an additional World Ender mechanic before we're done. 
[3] Umbral Dash (E)
[RETURNED] :: Now has 2 charges, from 1
[RETURNED] :: Cooldown between casts to 3/2.5/2/1.5/1
[RETURNED] :: Charge cooldown to 22/19/16/13/10 
[4] World Ender (R)
Cast time :: .5 >>> .25
Revive Self Slow :: 25% >>> 99%
Revive Heal:: 10-50% Max HP >>> 30% Max HP
[NEW] :: Now also fears enemy champions on cast for 1 second 
[5] [NEW] :: Aatrox now only revives if he gets a takedown during World Ender
[NEW] :: Takedowns extend World Ender by 5 seconds, reset The Darkin Blade (Q)'s cooldown, and add 1 charge of Umbral Dash (E) 
2) Riot Repertoir provided changelists for balance changes in today's update:
