yea If nothing is really done to wws kit, then hes still not viable. People didnt play him because hes a slow jungler anyway. They didnt play him because hes a horrid ganker pre level 6. This jungle change isnt going to effect that. They needed to boost his kit. Oh wait they did, they just renamed him rengar.... *whispers* put a patch over his eye, theyll never know.

Oddly, in the current jungle, I've had a VERY VERY good strong start with Eve going Blue Elixir + 6 pots.

It lets you get through your first clear RIDICULOUSLY fast and start ganking, with strong early game AP and nearly 40% CDR and full health.

Additionally, if you can't get a gank, it'll last through a second clear and/or some counter jungling.

By the time Blue Elixir wears off you'll have (nearly EVERY game) at least 1200gp and can return and grab a Hextech Revolver and possibly boots which puts you in a GREAT place as jungle Eve.

I showed this to a buddy of mine that plays around 1400 ELO and another at around 2k ELO and they seemed very surprised at how effective a start this is with Eve.

Would a start like this be possible with Eve in S3?

Hmm. My reaction to the changes was that it was intended to make counter-jungle (including ganks) a strong strategy again. (higher reward for stealing, more vulnerable farming)

Also - have you been up all night? You need to get some rest!

You should tune Shaco to that item, as well.
I believe you posted earlier saying skills will do bonus %dmg on hit (including spell-damage)
so Shaco's boxes should basically destroy all the camps and dragon. I feel even with this increased damage toward pets (which I'm sure applies to his boxes and maybe even clone) people might just decide to go tanky (runes and masteries) and tank while the boxes shred every camp, including dragon.

"Firstly, we are going to reduce the emphasis on area-of-effect damage dealers by re-balancing more of the health and damage into the large monster in each of the camps."

"Jungle monsters now attack the nearest target rather than attempting to chase their original attacker to make their behavior more consistent"

Wait, so no more leashing..? Blue is going to kill everyone.

all I heard was blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah we made jungling harder so you cant gank early game cause of too many crybabies got their way again blah blah blah blah blah blah blah LIVE WITH IT!

Thanks for taking teemo completely off the jungler list :-) Cheers Always knew you guys at riot would listen to the cry babies rather than making them learn how to play. This champ is too OP he needs nerf wah wah ... <---- he has a counter champ and he is your counterchamp stop crying about it and learn to stay away from him and learn how to get around him. Plain a simple.
