OK, here is yet another attempt at guessing how soon 1.10 shows up and what 'we' should do about it.
1. Run Seven Samurai. The latest version is at RBD post 237.7, and is further ammended by set and item guidance. (In First Reply to this post)
2. Try Sirian's Great Cleansing Assassin Variant. Looks interesting. (See RBD post 495 from this post, or thereabouts.)
3. Consider an Order of the Aegis/Beacon 'Cleric' Variant. RBD post 504 as of today's post, or thereabouts. (OK, shameless plug for a variant I never got past mid-NM, sorry!)
4. Seven Lances. If we want to Seven Lance the Seven Samurai at 1.10, I suggest we consider that Foxbat, Spider, and company may spend a few days, weeks, as RL permits, to fine tune their mod once 1.10 hits. Or maybe not.
