  • The golem camps monsters have increased movement speed to make them less vulnerable to kiting, especially early on by the blue side bottom lane
Bullet point 1: I'm confused about how you use the word "target." Is this defined as any player who attacks a buff monster, or does it mean that once someone on my team attacks a camp, all people on my team are considered to be "targets" of that camp? Because this can make leashing very confusing and difficult depending on who the "target" is.


Bullet point 3: Will this affect the ability for Maokai players to clear wraiths during their first clear?

Bullet point 4: Let's assume this:
I'm a purple side jungler who will level 2 gank mid after doing blue buff.
I know blue side double golems are harder to do now (due to the speed buff), so chances are the enemy adc won't be doing them.
Because of this, I hand off the rewards of killing wolves to my adc, this way he has an advantage over the enemy bottom laners, who didn't do golems.

Won't this just be switching the early game advantage of bottom lane from blue side to purple side if the purple side jungler is going to do a level 2 gank?

Ps I like the early jungle item idea. It's about time. Thank you. I think this will help people have an easier time adjusting to the jungle.

A jungler item that deals x amount of damage to creeps with +8 AD and heals you for 12% of the damage dealt.

will this new jungle kill off some of the meta junglers like skarner and mao, who dont have the best damage right now but make up for it by being really good gankers?

So what does this mean for all those people who need a leash at blue buff?
