I'm trying out the new jungle in the pbe
Summary of Day 1 here - http://www.reignofgaming.net/blogs/s...-day-1-summary

Edit - not enjoying basically being forced to take the machete and still struggle

Edit 2- It's not looking so good for the first clear and a few junglers. Some junglers, like Diana, are doing well and considering the jungle will scale up and give more gold as the game goes on she'll benefit in the end!

Edit 3 - Darius fastest jungler so far. I have no tried Dr. Mundo or Shyvana

Edit 4 - Verdict on the jungle is that it's not "bad" nor is it "good" - it is different. A few junglers that we've gotten used to are going to be snuffed out and other junglers are going to get better or stay the same. The speed junglers Dr Mundo and Shyvana have the same clear times (albeit sustain hits) and will benefit from increased gold. The sustained ones like Warwick and Fiddle became more attractive and versatile picks. Then you have lee Sin who so far is actually WORSE in the new jungle. He cannot sustain himself and his speed took a nose dive.

Edit 5 - Spoilers of course: The following videos are preparing and are queued for upload (takes awhile to upload btw): 2 Lee Sin videos done, Old School, The Ganker Supreme, The Fragile One, The Dark Horses, The Fire Starters, The Chosen One, The Hopefuls, The Manly Men, The Fast Junglers, The Troll. You take a guess at who is who.

Day 1
The crash site is a mess. I'm alive, but for how long? Nobody else is around. It's not looking good so far :/

Day 2
I found a machete in the ruins of the cargo hold, but it's still a struggle to cut through the dense foliage of this world.

Day 3
This place is brutal. It took me all day to create enough of a clear path to move deeper into the jungle. Good news though, Diana managed to make her way to the crash site and doesn't appear much worse for wear.

Day 6
I had a fright today as Darius came crashing out from the undergrowth with an axe and a trio of wolves slung over his shoulder. One was almost as large as the man himself... I didn't enjoy his company before, but it's comforting to see a friendly face. At least we'll eat well tonight. Still no sign of Shyvana or the ship's doctor.

Day 13
The more time I spend in this jungle, the more I feel like it's not so bad. Not good, either, mind you, just different from the forests of our home. Doctor Mundo and Shyvana finally came stumbling out of the brush last night as we were cooking dinner. Apparently the smoke from the fires led them to our location. They told me that Warwick and Fiddlesticks were starting a settlement north of our location, shelter and food enough for all of us, found in the wreckage of their own larger ship. The others want to strike out, but I feel hesitant. We haven't seen any signs of Lee and I haven't given up hope for him yet...

Well, stonewall, you've jungled with every champion on the face of the earth, give us the specifics.

Big buffs to WW and Fiddle then I presume?

Although it seems Fiddle will still get **** on early game by mobs if it's as bad as it sounds

I'm going to be trying warwick next.

I don't get how Machete is a good item. Start with no resists or sustain in a jungle that deals more damage? Makes no sense to me.

Buk Wild 11-15-2012 09:59 PM

What about J4? I hope my favorite champ didn't get neutered here

They can still gank level 2 you dolt. They can gank it just as fast. Just everything else is messy.

I really hope Hecarim is still alright...

keenscythe 11-15-2012 10:03 PM

how are champs with sustain issues like nautilus and mundo handling it?
is the hunters machete mandatory?

LordPopple 11-15-2012 10:03 PM

I don't understand why Vampiric Scepter is now 800 gold.

It seems like champs without really good built in sustain are just going to be crushed.

All times are GMT -8. The time now is 09:06 PM.
