Context & Notes

1) Riot Scruffy provided changelists for balance in patch 10.10:
"Patch 10.10 preview with some tentative changes. Should have some more updates later in the week with directions we're testing for bot and mid lane."
He also shared some early testing numbers for bottom changes:
[1] Testing our first iteration of bot changes with both offense and defense. We're not going the direct XP route to keep the power focused on the carry instead of both carry and sup.  
-Zeal +3% Attack speed
-RFC, PD, Shiv, Hurricane +5% Attack speed
-ADC Base Health +30; per lvl +5 
[2] It's a first set of changes, so expect things may change and we will do a tuning pass if the direction is good. These aren't going into 10.10 so we can take time iterating. Mid changes aren't in yet, focusing on Bot first.
