I haven't seen one new jungler since the start of season two... Part of the reason the new items were implemented and jungles were changed was to promote new jungler's. However if anything the number of viable junglers have decreased. Riot why make something that was hard in season 2( in terms of gold output) and in season 3 make it harder(harder jungle pathing about equal gold output in season 2)?

Jungling is actually easier now with the new items I find. Especially Sejuani who I've been playing a lot, she's a heck of a lot stronger with the new items.

Its easier for some junglers, however thats the issue, its just reinforcing those characters as junglers. People who were not considered as junglers(wukong, riven, pantheon) have a much much harder time now. Characters like who were always junglers haven't really seen much difference. The changes in gold output to jungles dont really take effect until round lvl 11, past laning phase and entering team fights where junglers are not the only ones in jungles anymore...

The point of the update wasn't to make champions that are worthless at jungle better (Pantheon for instance), it was to make single target junglers actually worthwhile. Warwick/Yi/Fiddle/Others are all in better positions than they were, at least compared to the other junglers.

People are just scared to try new unconventional champs to jungle, that's why you see none.

By making the jungler harder if just elimiates those that were stellar in the jungle now everyone is weaker, a good thing. However with the harder jungle you will see a lot more people lean on their "go-to" jungler those that were powerful before because they are more comfortable with those champs. We should see more champs beign played as people get more comfortable with the new items/masts/jungle but for now seeing only 4-5 total junglers is expected.

People heard that "the jungle is harder now" and they're sticking to safe jungle picks because of it. And then a month from now someone will actually try something different and find some unknown jungler is completely solid now.

Playing Warwick in the new jungle has been pretty fun.

I just had a game with jungle Karma and Gragas (we had the Karma). She wrecked face, and was one of the best junglers I've had the pleasure to play with in ranked.
