Ziggs
Summary: Short Fuse has had its damage increased slightly. Bouncing Bomb can be cast at targets outside of max range but will only travel the set distance. Satchel Charge's radius has been increased. Hexplosive Minefield and Mega Inferno Bomb are both more effective against minions, with Minefield not dealing decreased damage on multiple hits to minions and Mega Inferno Bomb dealing double damage to minions.
Context: We've improved Ziggs in terms of general utility while also trying to carve out his niche as a pushing / counterpushing champion more effectively. In this regard a lot of our changes are focused on the damage he deals to minions, but we've made some general damage buffs overall.
Short Fuse
- Max damage increased
Bouncing Bomb
- Bouncing Bomb can now be cast at targets outside of 850 range
- When cast outside of max range will fire in the direction but only travel 850 range
Satchel Charge
- Radius increased
Hexplosive Minefield
- Does not do decreased damage on multiple hits to minions
- Damage radius per mine increased
Mega Inferno Bomb
- Now deals double damage to minions
This was posted a while ago by a rioter and yet many of these changes are still not on the pbe.

Can we get an update on this?

Those changes should all have been on the PBE for a little while now. Which specific ones aren't showing up?

Why are these the buffs you guys wanted to give Ziggs? What does clearing waves more efficiently do for him?

They improve on his control of his specific niche. Ziggs takes a piece of lands, plops down, and says 'I OWN THIS AREA'.

Not everyone has to fit exactly into every meta. Look at Leona - people said she was trash-tier support for a long time when the meta was focused on sustain, but once it shifted, her niche (stunstunstunstunstun) started to shine. Massive zone control is the same way - useful in a particular batch of strategies that isn't currently the norm.

Siege/anti siege (whether in primary pushing lane or not). Few more details in the post quoted above.

Jungle's something we'll definitely keep an eye on. Don't think there's anything too abusive there, hence the minefield's not just more effective against lane minions, will change that if we have to though if any significant problems crop up.

I just played Ziggs support and destroyed, building philo, sightstone, kages, sorcerers, then rushing morellonomicon & aegis.
I went 4/2/16.

edit: and yeah, that's relevant. Because with all the awesome damage, Ziggs is gonna be a mean support. Ppl are gonna QQ.
He is going to be nerfed.
Just like Zyra!
