Heimer was and always will be the ultimate leash, if you can get over the beeping sound of his turrets. Also it sounds like nunu will be a good jungle again

Statikk, PLEASE answer this question for me if you would be so kind.

All I want to ask is a question of clarity, so I'm hoping for a yes or no answer.

This thread is called Preseason jungle changes. Does this mean that we can expect these changes in the upcoming Zed patch, assuming it comes out very soon?

Can I ask why this change was made? I know the plan is to make it more consistent, but can you give us an idea of how it was inconsistent?

I have only one complaint about any of these changes and that's the following:

That's going to make leashing for a jungler much harder and almost impossible. Plus, this also means the players who want to wait in bushes to make sure invaders for stealing the jungle are seen soon enough won't be able to help effectively with a leash. I say get rid of that idea altogether because it ruins the meta not helps it. That's just my two cents, others will probably disagree.

Are the new changes currently live on PBE?

Unlike other champions where I feel there are small tweaks we can make to ensure they are viable in the new jungle, Volibear feels fairly off and would need some significant changes (both buffs and nerfs) to switch him more into a jungle role.
I would be 100% okay with this.

I feel like this will make Riven suck in the jungle... But I like how the mobs attack the closest enemy, that will help with counter jungling, I think.

LOL. Fiora is a great top-lane champion. She has huge, and power, gap-closing capabilities, great sustain, a really powerful ult, massive steroids, and can counter most of the general top-lane picks with her counter-harass. She's better top than jungle.
