I thought I read that somewhere but I could be mistaken. If so can I get a link?
yes, and the plan is still to make changes. we'll talk about details (and reasons for it being a bit out of sync with the preseason) soon. i think that'll be done for 4.3 judging by the current trajectory.
Last I read (which was a few days ago) They didn't like the "Direction" the rune changes they had in mind were going and were more or less not gonna happen. They had "a few ideas" but weren't sure it was even gonna happen.
this isn't correct. source? curious to know what would lead you to believe that.

this is also not correct. we've stated before that if we decide to delete any runes, and owners of said runes would be refunded (similar to what we did with dodge runes).
So regarding runes like LS Quints and stuff since I'm starting to get into the ADC role, should I go ahead a buy them or wait it out? They're pretty expensive...
honestly, it depends on why you currently want to unlock them. if you want to do it because you feel you have to if you want to play adc, then you might want to wait until we post more details. if you want to do it because you play champions that benefit from life steal and/or your preferred playstyle benefits from life steal (e.g., you like farming in prolonged laning phases), then you should be fine.
the tl;dr on stuff like this is that ideally specific runes shouldn't feel like they're required, so we want to take steps to alleviate that feeling where it exists.
the easiest example is armor sealsit's a very common sentiment that everyone must run tier 3 armor seals as soon as they're able to, so we're looking at options such as buffing other seals, increasing champion base armor across the board, and nerfing armor seals (or a combination of all of the above). armor seals should still feed good and useful, but it would be nice to have the option to take something else and not feel like you were throwing the game at champ select. that's pretty much all that's going on.
in any case, if you're sitting on a pile of ip, thinking about buying runes, and apprehensive about not knowing more about the changes, we'll have details out in february. apologies for not being able to go more in depth than that for nowthanks for your patience thus far.
