Ive been interested in learning to jungle in a long time, and I've been especially interested in the champions hecarim, rengar and kha'zix, but I know they were usually played as junglers before, are they still viable with the season 3 changes?

Rengar wasn't played as a jungler in S2, he was top lane (and still is). I do believe he can still jungle, though. I never really saw much Kha'zix play, so I don't have any idea, but I would be surprised if he couldn't clear the jungle with machete. Same with Hecarim.

Basically, the new jungle just made it so that junglers took more damage from the jungle - all the clear times are within something like 5-10 seconds of their old times, you just tend to be lower on HP at the end.

Junlgers like shyvana and mundo are whats in right now. High sustain, fast clear times.

In my opinion, Hecarim is one of the best junglers. While he can clear rather fast, he is also VERY good if you are an aggressive player. He is excellent when beefy, turret diving and just being all-around strong. Kha'Zix is also a good pick as well. His W (which you get first) gives you a delicious heal and does nice AOE damage. He can do good damage early game in his ganks, and has a jump so they won't get away.

Hecarim's jungle is still pretty fast. Kha'Zix can also clear ok if you get a good leash, but tbh he's better in a lane, as is Rengar.

Olaf and Udyr still work just the same as they always did. Especially Olaf, I think his clear times actually got faster with his sustain and passive.

I jungle Hecarim all the time you can clear the jungle and go back for more the first time through or get some early ganks. He is still very viable and a fun jungle.

Olaf's no smite no leash jungle clear time (max Q then E ignore W) is FASTER than his smite + leash s2 time. and you can clear Blue, wolves, wraiths, red, golems, wraiths, wolves, golems, wraiths, wolves then 1st b with 1.6k gold. (no smite start machete, 5 pot and ad/armor runes and 30/0/0)
