RIP Jungle Karthus.
You'd be surprised because Karthus does an insanely high amount of single target damage once he isolates the big monster (after the small ones die to the AoE).

He also benefits heavily from the addition of a few new jungle items that are aimed towards AP.

So two questions. You mentioned a starting jungle item, would this be a more scaled down version of madred's razor? Also, since you increased main jungle monster health and damage do you think that champs like tiger udyr and trundle who have built in mobility but outshined by other AOE junglers will become more popular?

Having Massive "BACK IN MY DAY" Remembering the old jungle where we didn't need no stinking leash.

It was nice though.

Any hopes at an actual Preview of The Hunter's Machete?

Does this include Dragon? That would be a huge (and welcome) change.

Wait, so no more leashes?

I thought the changes were supposed to allow more champs to jungle?

I think "leashing" is gone, but you will still be able to help your jungler by damaging the camp b4 going to your lane

"Jungle monsters now attack the nearest target rather than attempting to chase their original attacker to make their behavior more consistent"

Does this only apply to champions or minions/pets as well?
