Context & Notes

1) Riot Scruffy provided a list of changelists for champions this cycle:
"9.16 changes in progress. Added Singed. Some are big and some pretty small, feedback welcome as always."
He also noted:
"Also - not mentioned but work happening on 
Kayle - for 9.17
Asol - for 9.17
Shaco - for a later patch
Ivern - for a later patch and some others (we will talk about them more when the designers have work to show)"
2) Riot August provided an updated Kayle changelist:
[1] "Kayle changes are trending positively.
Targeting 9.17 for ship.
TLDR
-Exalted MS is all directions
-Range @ 6
-AoE @ 11
-More range (575) instead of true damage @ 16
-Q is faster + Refunds mana
-Lower R CD
-Better on-hit ratios
-Lower range (525), no AS spike @ 11, less shred
[2] "Intent is that she is still a weaker early game champion that ascends into a carry role, but now has more opportunities to succeed (or fail) vs. her lane opponents."
