So... with this target change in mind:

If a player flashes through Baron's wall to escape me, and I attack Baron, would Baron target him?

This changes jungle fight gameplay, as now jungle creeps will target those closest to them and aid those further from them no?

Why would you put Morde into the jungle as opposed to the mid lane??

Leona can't Proc her own Sunlight on an enemy at all. This would seriously break her.

the only way hog can help your clears it's that flat hp, some armor would help your clearing more than 200 hp

Since then, we've had to make jungle monsters deal some amount of bonus damage to pets and we're still trying to fine tune the number to make sure having pet tanks is an advantage but doesn't necessarily mean jungle invincibility.
I am very interested in how you will balance around all the different pets.
Elise's spiderlings already have low hp, so scaling jungle creep damage around other champion's minions hp could very easily screw her.
While Malzahar's voidlings have relatively high hp, so scaling jungle creep damage around other champion's minions could give him an unfair advantage.
I look forward to your solution

Statikk... will this mean i can do well with Jungle Talon? i've been trying different things on him like spell vamp (i realize the reduced effect) and the tankiness, but theres not much i have found that makes him a viable ganker, will this change? is he good for jungle now?
