The leashing currently available, can allow a what i call "dance leash".

A "dance leash" is when a ranged aggravation of the blue golem (or any jungle mod) is done from the other side of wall and they move up and down in the middle of where the golem decides either to go up or down, forcing him into what seems to be a bug, moving up and down to get to the original leasher but allowing the jungler to finish the mod unharmed.

Yes, missing xp is huge, but if the other team is using a jungler that needs that harder leash as well, then it's even. It just adds to the risk/reward of various junglers. I love the idea of this change simply as a way to change it up.

actually this is not correct sir, after the range leashes you he will proceed to start hitting you... unless your leasher is closer to the mobs than you are... they attack closest targets always... the only leashes still viable will be face leashes.. that and they will have increased speed so as soon as they catch you.. it won't switch onto the ranged again

I don't understand why so many people like this. This doesn't make the jungle easier, it makes it harder, if anything it will reduce the lineup of viable Junglers. Especially since you can't leash now. Wtf riot?

Heimerdinger will be the best leasher, not that he is not already one.
