Talk Rengar after reading your posts I think he's going to be super broken, which he already is imo.

We're monitoring him very closely.
This actually scares me a little i like to play Jax but i mostly play Jax top, if you think he is OP in the jungle before nerfing/changing him will you keep in mind that he is played in lane too? because if you nerf his stats,damage or w/e because it's OP in the jungle you may hurt his lane that it's OK imo.

Not trying to ignore anyone. Just busy and it's quite literally impossible to answer every question (also posting in other regions).

Just tried a Kha'Zix solo run, his clear was fairly impressive when I went a very AD heavy rune / mastery build and maxed Void Spike first. He's fairly mana hungry, but that means Spirit Stone should be a fairly solid item on him. Not sure if he would be successful in the jungle with a non-Void Spike focused build.

You ult the enemy into Dragon because then damage will be dealt to Dragon, which will activate Dragon. Dragon will seek out the closest person, which will be the enemy you kicked into Dragon.

I posted this question and it was skipped over apparently.

Will there be a new "jungle" item section added to the store if there are as many changes being added as we've been clued into, Statikk? It almost seems overwhelming with the amount of changes to items and the starting paths being given.

Statikk, sounds to me like Olaf will be a viable pick for jungle now? XD

So how's his health upon ganking after clearing the jungle?


Kha'zix is the complete opposite of durable, and with someone as squishy as him, the enemy who knows he can't escape will jsut turn around and burst a jungler down if he's squishy enough. As I recall, you're removing the Indomnitable and Tough Skin Masteries, this especially won't bode well for already squishy junglers whose only source of heal is that overpriced W that heals a tiny amount...

He always was, even with Boots 3. He will probably be more vulnerable to counter jungling, but new items should help

Is Poppy never going to jungle again with these new changes and items?
