So, no more leashes?

Any way i repeat! Keep an eye on Shaco!!
He will be the only jungler in the game ho can destroy blue or red easy...that is a grate advantage. U can doit fast and go kill the other jungler.. fast too.. He will be low health always.
Thx
Also watch out for Olaf, Nunu, & Warwick.

how will shaco boxes be affected since the boxes HAVE to aggro the minions or else shaco will not be able to take red or blue at lvl one, even now if the boxes bug shaco BARELY will be able to take red buff, and will not survive blue buff, imo shaco had a grand advantage of his initial clear time and not needing a leash, with the new ai and tougher buffs, this takes away every advantage a jungle shaco has especially because after the first clear the next one is going to be much slower, and thus is kill reliant if you want to contribute in the late game. Maybe give shaco boxes a longer duration so that you can just barely get out 5 for the first clear?
by kill reliant i mean, that you are at a disadvantage to other junglers and have to use kills to catch up.

Statikk i hope u read this:

Fiora needs a big push and her passive is so useless. You should increase her hp regeneration to a decent value like garen.
Also this changes will negatively affect sejuani and she is already a low tier jungler already. so before doing this changes you should buff champions like these please. So they dont get even more unviable.

Thank you for reading

Can't be bothered to read 100+ pages of text.

Idea:
Leashing could still be viable, be it in a different form. Have your support leash: (s)he can then recall back, heal, and head to lane. This gives your AD a little time of solo XP at the beginning, to boot! If this could become a standard strategy, it then also offers the counter-strategy of not leashing so that you can gank their AD with your support at level 1.

you can still leash, you just can't kite, so top lane will stick around an extra second. If the jungler doesn't need to use smite on golems then he will be able to get lizard that much quicker.

Sure junglers can create action by ganking, but overbearing gank presence in and of itself causes lane passivity. Why would you ever risk harassing or going for a kill on your lane opponent if you know their jungler is just going to pop out and take you down?
Its not what wards are supposed to do?

Jungle monsters now attack the nearest target rather than attempting to chase their original attacker to make their behavior more consistent. Will this not allow leashes from mid?

Would this mean we wouldn't be able to leash monsters anymore? Also, would we be able to aggro jungle monsters onto enemies using this?
