If you're going to change the jungle monsters to be stronger, then consider making it so that Fiddlesticks could have more health, because if not, he will not be able to take on the Golem once pulled, and he won't be able to jungle effectively.

The increased gold gain sounds promising for him, but I don't know yet :x
To be completely honest with you, I don't think Volibear is a good jungler both on Live and in the new one currently in iteration. He feels currently much better suited for Top Lane.

Unlike other champions where I feel there are small tweaks we can make to ensure they are viable in the new jungle, Volibear feels fairly off and would need some significant changes (both buffs and nerfs) to switch him more into a jungle role.

Does that mean leashing won't work now?

Not sure if this was asked before but if Hunterís Machete has no raw stats, in what section of the store would we buy it from? Consumables?
Or could there possible be another section be made for jungle items and other new items like the revision on Eleisa's Miracle and other unique items.
I would asume there would be a new section called jungle in the store

Wait wait wait, people actually max W first on Amumu? Or even second?

How about Kha'Zix? I haven't been able to even clear decently with him, so I relegate him to top.
