Make the Machete turn into boots (create a new pair of boots that only champs in the Jungle class can use) give them the regular boot stats + what machete offers + maybe a unique passive like reduces slows, or when out of combat movement speed is increased by an additional 5-10% of base movement speed? Or something else, whatever could possibly work really. In my opinion people who complain that you dont get enough gold from jungling without ganking have no right to complain. A BIG part of jungling is the ability to gank, you cant just farm the Jungle all day long. But machete is kind of a waste of an item late game, especially on champs like skarner.

That would require grouping. Which means a meta is then created and the versatility that Riot was seeking for would be contradictory.

because skarner doesn't want aoe true damage burn or health/tenacity, depending on what he turns it into.

It wouldn't even have to be specifically jungle, and they could put some kind of tenacity passive on it because everyone knows jungler's are targeted by CC when trying to gank, maybe like reduces slows or reduces the time of stuns by X amount. Im just saying Machete isn't versatile enough to make it almost mandatory on all but the most sustainable jungler's.

Of course I upgrade it but on some champs, It doesn't necessarily upgrade into something Useful, thus forcing you to sell it mid game and loosing some gold in the process. Also the reason I propose that Riot creates a new pair of boots that machete could possibly upgrade to is because Jungler's can use the extra speed when ganking lanes and a little extra speed wont necessarily make avoiding a gank possible. It will just force the champs in Lane to be more map aware and more cautious.

you're saying Spirit of the Ancient Golem/Ancient Lizard isn't useful.

I have to assume you either haven't actually used them or are trolling me.

The only complaint I have with the jungle right now is that my first clear is incredibly dangerous, but all subsequent clears are cakewalks.

They are useful Just not on every Champ. There are some Champs that benefit much better from Other Items.
