Like, most people would agree that he isn't in a very strong spot at the moment mainly due to the shifting jungle changes.
Like, can Maokai get something?
Maybe, scaling MR cause every single champion has it and he doesn't?
Longer sapling duration?
Or even, something small, like making his E's animation a tiny bit faster?

I played Maokai quite a bit in season 2 where he was considered one of the stronger junglers and enjoyed him a lot back then, but now I feel he is considerably weaker than what he used to be

Small power increase coming in the next patch courtesy of a bug fix. His ult's currently not storing as much bonus damage as it should be, based off the amount of damage absorbed (will charge 25% faster post fix). Nothing beyond that at the moment though.

What about his abysmal mana costs though?

I complain more about his really high cooldowns, one row of abilies then you just stand there being a shield waiting on friends, one of the worst duelists in the game, cant hardly win a 1v1 with anyone, makes him always need backup.

Do you think you guys could slightly drop the mana cost on his E? It's pretty expensive for a low mana pool tank to spam.
70/80/90/100/110 down to 75/80 at all ranks?

It's difficult sustaining in the jungle without blue. Maybe lower the charges on his passive from 5 to 4? Or make it so that abilities like Ahri's Spirit Rush give him more than one stack?

A side note, when are the new runes coming in,and is there going to be changes to the mastery tree? Theres a few like runic blessing that gives the 50 health shield that literally see no use, because they are not really good at all.

Are there any plans to help tank junglers in general? It seems like Maokai, Amumu, and Nautilus are completely overshadowed by fighters like Vi and Shyv.

Good, because he's still really strong at the moment

IDK, Maokai is pretty crazy.
