And have their primary (only)jungling skill do half damage to minions?

Like seriously Riot, are you that afraid of fastclearing junglers?

On this note why not make Phoenix Stance, Burning Agony, Crystal Slash, and Burnout do half minion damage as well?

It's already a pathetically low damage skill as it is. Why make it so it can't even jungle properly? It's a .3 scaling skill that gets no benefit from crit, and a base power of 25. Most AOE junglers get stronger hits than that per-second on DOTs.

Because we're not trying to make the fastest jungler with the best ganks. Pre-6 he's alright, and post-6 has godly ganks...you have to counterbalance it so Hecarim is not the only viable jungler.

It's called balance. With such a low CD it allows for fairly quick clear times.

Godly might be going a little far, his ganks are okay, but what Morello said.

There are many champs that are godly with level 3 ganks, Hecarim is not one of them (Unless you max E first)

I think half damage is just hurting the community's mentality about it.

It should be reworded so the half damage is the original damage,
and damage to champions should be doubled haha.
