You mean no more supermaning blue/red?

Hopefully this makes the jungle a viable selection for independence and not just supported.

This has been gnawing at the back of my head, but with this new jungle, will some champs that were never thought of as jungle worthy be able to jungle? I'm just wondering because I'd rather not see an Ahri with smite and have her gank by flashing in, charm a person, and kite them with her ult and escape relatively unscathed.

I haven't jungled with karthus in a long time, but sense the wall nerf of no more flat reduction i've heard its not as viable.

Although he still can drop minions to zero magic reduction it would require runes and this would make him more open to attacks from minions.

If build with more resistance and life then maybe he would survive it, but would also be trade off of damage.

Personally karthus jungle would be interesting, if say for example the ultimate was limited to a range around him similar to the other SEMI-GLOBAL ultimate.

Also it'll be great to see how this affects jungle Fiora, Yi and Gangbang and other single-target champs.
LAWL gangbang i am pretty sure it was intentional but still nice play on words you made my day

What about melee carries like yi, trynd, and poppy?
Poppy in particular.
Trynd and yi currently have their own things going on, but POPPY... can she still clear just barely?
Did her quality of life get better or worse? Is she not even usable anymore?

Fortunately, Eve has found viability in mid lane so it's not like she's completely out of options. Will probably revisit her if there is a need to.
I've really enjoyed her jungling ever since the rework. I hope you guys tweak her a little more to keep her viable in the new jungle.
