I'm curious. If increasing the over all damage to prevent early ganks is done, how will junglers like Kha'zix and Twitch be able to clear with their weak start due to lack of damage and durability?

Also, are there any special items in store that will aid in my marvelous jungle Annie? The nerf to DFG really hit jungle Annie hard, and her sustain in the jungle is very lacking due to the expensiveness of Revolver.

I'm interested in the new changes. However, i'm not sure how this will work out. This might help some jungler out but will it really help the gameplay? I'd really like to see what will happen. What about champion that rely on aoe damage to clear jungle with poor gank to work right now like hecarim whose gank aren't the best? So will this really help having more diversity in jungle? I'm not sure, it will help some and be negative for other. This seams to me like the exact opposite of the last jungle change with little changes to stop jungle abuse like mid lane always stealing wraith and such. Can't wait to see what will happen.

How's Nocturne in the new jungle? Hopefully the small camps die to umbra blades without requiring his Q or AD items.

Also does this mean junglers will have a larger impact on the later stages of the game rather then just getting lanes fed early and having those fed carries have the impact? I hope so cause I hate having so much less gold than the TOP/ADC/MID because they get so much more gold from their creeps than junglers get from their camps. Feels like I am another support.

No it currently costs 300g meaning you can start with 5 Health Potions (numbers subject to change before release).

The Hunter's Machete actually has no raw stats but instead increases your damage dealt to jungle monsters by a % and also adds bonus true damage to your basic attacks against jungle monsters.

The item then branches off into 2 upgrade paths one being Madred's Razor and the other being a new item focused more towards non-autoattack based champions called the Spirit Stone.
