This seems pretty ridiculous to increase the damage output of the jungle. Junglers with high sustain will still be able to gank at lvl 2 considering their healing capabilities are broken so really no point but yup vileguy, back to ww, nunu and fiddle.

Please Riot buff Sejuani after these changes. She has a very difficult jungle clear already, and now that things are going to be even stronger, shes gonna need a small buff at /least/. I run full defensive masteries and normal jungler runes, and would only just be able to clear jungle with a bit of health left. Please help her m__m

We're monitoring him very closely.
I was thinking how much better jungle Jax would be with these changes right before I got to this post. When you eventually nerf him please don't overdo it, he is one of my favorite champs.

OK! i see a few problems with this update. Reducing early jungler presence in lane mean that a lane with a hard counter champion to the opposing lane gonna have a hard time farming without jungler help. If Riots want to reduce the effectiveness of ganking champions like skarn, lee, and noct by reducing their aoe dmg on creeps then what happen to champion like mundo, shyv, and sej? These three may have an amazing creeps clearing but their gank is not effective. Mundo cleavage can be avoided, shyv have no ganking ability beside exhaust, and sej is not even tanky enough for a kiting champion. Taking a lot of their aoe dmg away and they're become weak. How much gold will you improve after killing creeps because if jungler get no money by ganking early lane then how will they scale to late game?
