To be honest, this was a good change, but the next step is to add some sort of tics to the monster health bars like champions have - Preferably with a difference look, and maybe only to indicate chunks of 1000? But may as well. Especially for Baron and Dragon, though on all AI it could be useful.

This. Helps me time my Final Spark to steal Dragon/Baron.

Do you not click on the Dragon and watch the numbers on its health bar? Do you really just eyeball it? O.o

I wonder why drag/baron/big buffs don't have division in their hp bar, vilemaw has it and it's really a nice feature.

We actually intentionally didn't include it for them. The argument is that it somewhat increases the skill of Smite wars.

If you are a jungler that reads the numbers and waits until Baron's health is less than smite damage I will steal it 10 out of 10 times.

I suppose I'm just a Plat scrub, but it's all about watching the bar and getting a feel for how fast Baron's being nuked. Smite wars are all about experience. With the new changes it's going to push it a little bit closer to 50/50 odds in my opinion.

So instead of being able to tell by simply looking at you'd rather look at the top right after clicking on it?

Or you could evaluate the dps being dealt to it and smite when you think it's about to be smitable. I don't think anyone who reads the number actually do it the way you say.
