Context & Notes

1) Riot Scruffy noted details on the upcoming 9.24b patch:
[1] "Patch 9.24b preview - this is a micropatch meant to tune preseason systems and a few champs before the holidays."
[2] Should be coming roughly mid week.

2) Here's Llord Llama on the dev corner with an update on TFT Titan's Resolve and changes that should be coming for it soon:
"Titan’s Resolve REPLACES Phantom Dancer 
Titan’s Resolve: When the wearer is hit by a source of damage, they gain a 2.5% stacking damage increase (stacks infinitely). 
(Updated version coming to PBE soon!) Titan’s Resolve: When the wearer takes damage or inflicts a critical hit, they gain a 1% stacking damage bonus. Stacks up to 80 times, at which point the wearer gains 25 Armor and Magic Resistance, and increases in size. 
12/17 Update: After additional testing, we needed to dial back Titan's Resolve a bit - or at least reduce its ceiling. Most of the time, it's fine... except when playing against Inferno teams, where its sensitive trigger led to some pretty insane stack counts. But it's fun to watch a stack count rise fast, so solutions like narrowing the trigger or imposing an internal cooldown weren't very appealing. The solution we landed on - imposing a reasonable stack cap and then giving extra tanky stats when the wearer hits it - let us maintain the fun feeling of the item while not having it be a hard counter for Inferno and, to a lesser extent, Summoner teams. 
Also: in early testing, we'd had a size increase built in (raid boss Leona!) but got feedback that size increases imply toughness and resilience rather than more damage. Since the reward for hitting the stack cap is now more tankiness, the size increase is back! 
Phantom Dancer received a significant change in 9.24, but since we ultimately wanted Bramble Vest to fill the anti-crit, anti-assassin role, giving tanks some opportunity to hit back made a lot of sense - especially on an item that grants Attack Speed. Since Bramble Vest renders Phantom Dancer redundant, we created Titan’s Resolve (aka “Leona’s Revenge.”) You want this item on champions who will take a lot of hits and stay standing to reap the benefits of a huge pile of Titan stacks. 
That’s it for the new items. What about item updates?"
