What about his mana pool? At L18 he has something pitiful like 700-800 mana, while the average AD carry has 1100-1200.

This is depressing and exciting. Maybe I'm wrong on this assessment, but isn't WW supposed to be more of a hero that is sustain based? Isn't this going to take away from his "concept"?

Maybe you could add a passive slow to his E or some such thing in order to encourage earlier ganking?
Lower it, not gut it Don't worry, it's not going away.

ehh just be care careful with the numbers. I love WW because of his tankiness and ability to heal bait people with q and sustain.
Not going to complain about a faster jungle just don't want his identity changed to an assassin.

He honestly doesn't need damage buff so much as a mobility/utility buff. His Q does tons of damage and his steroid is respectable and has basically a 100% up time. What he needs is a blood scent rework

Look Warwick has to give up something for much needed buffs in areas where he is lacking
