With counter jungling and replacement of the big wraith, you're making the big wraith more easily taken by enemies in counter jungling. The placement of the wraith currently is to be more protected in the jungle, now it's more vulnerable, and with focusing the exp in the big guy, all it takes is a smite and some dps and you've just denied large exp

Lol on every page with a Red post there is a question about leashing when the question is answered in the first couple responses. xD

I'm really scared that new jungle is going to be really hard and so i won't get much fun from playing a game.

"The golem camps monsters have increased movement speed to make them less vulnerable to kiting, especially early on by the blue side bottom lane"

PLEASE STOP MAKING THEM FASTER! Can you please just make them spawn at 1:55 and reduce their speed and maybe reduce damage? I almost never take golems when I'm jungling because they are probably close to as strong as blue or red buff and not worth as much. No jungler starts golems anymore either so making it 1:55 isn't that big of a hindrance... Golems should be strong and slow IMO. No need to make them Strong and fast.

It's hard to sum up since it can vary so much based on jungler type and performance.

Most internal game end results have shown that strong farm junglers (especially when factoring in successful ganks and lane sharing/covering) can keep up in gold with the lanes and often end up with experience levels slightly between the solo lanes and the duo lane.

How does GP fare in the new jungle? He was overwhelmingly my favorite jungler in S1 and he just turned into a fairly useless champ in S2, since his clear was too slow and his top lane presence was average at best.

We're monitoring him very closely.
this means jax can be nerfed .
