How will these changes affect more counterjungle oriented champions such as Shyvana and Mundo? Won't the reduced AOE damage hurt them? :x

Have the timers been changed or just the difficulty of the camps?

Hey Statikk, it looks like most of the changes are positive. I like the increased gold and exp to make 'farming the jungle' possible.

But I'm worried about my new favorite, jungle Pantheon. Currently his jungle path is to go get blue (or sometimes red), then immediately gank at level 2. Then he might get wraiths and red and gank top or bottom, or even mid again (since he probably secured a flash last time). If he repeatedly fails ganking, then he falls way behind because of his slow overall clear and becomes just a walking teleport-stun.

What happens with jungle Pantheon now?

Is anything happening with Tiamat? Maybe turn into something jungle related? It's so sad to have an item exist that your instantly berated for if you take it.

The things that Jax has over Fiora are CC and AoE damage, but Fiora also has built in sustain with her passive to kind of off-set that.
I feel Fiora is significantly weaker than Jax in the jungle.

She has no AoE at all so the smaller monsters are a non-trivial time sink for her. Her resilience is much lower considering she only gets to negate 1 attack as opposed to the many Jax dodges at each camp. Additionally her ganks are significantly less scary due to no CC.

Are camp respawn times being changed at all to reflect the higher exp rewards and gold gains?

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

So basically leashes won't exist anymore?
