Diana actually performs very well in the new jungle. She has access to very high sustained damage and she benefits heavily from the increased gold flow since she scales well with items.

I like pretty much everything except that.

- More powerful jungle creeps
- Less effective AoE
- No leashing

= We are intentionally going to make no-sustain AoE junglers like Sejuani, Nautilus and Shyvana useless. (God knows whether or not Skarner and Hecarim will have enough sustain, but they're AoE based so they will get trashed as well)

Look, I understand you're randomly changing the meta just to sell more champions by making the old picks useless, but please consider people who have practiced a lot with the champions that were designed for the old jungle. Half of their kit revolves around jungling effectively and you are now taking this away.

They will end up like Karma - numerically good, but with a kit designed for a role that doesn't exist anymore.

I like that the golems are being made more of an appealing target and the wraiths are being lowered. This will help with the counter jungler stealing wraiths early. While still a good play it will lower how significant it is overall.

We'll be taking a look at junglers across the board and making champion specific changes where necessary. Slightly buffing up the early game of tank junglers such as Rammus and Nautilus (who were in some ways overnerfed due to the current jungle meta) is certainly not out of the question.
So question. Sejuani: Deader than she is now? Or better than she is now?
