tl;dr: They're undoing the changes to jungle they did last time, turns out they were wrong back then after all.

will this be back to some way it was similar to season one, where the jungler would level faster as to counteract the increased damage coming in season 3. my point being the camps are harder to kill, would the jungler be rewarded with more experience for the amount of damage he would be taking from these stronger minions. with enough a good experiance to damage ratio the jungler could lead in level again but be forced to back or try and gank with something like 20% hp. with this no leash mechanic the experience could just go to "last hitter" or to prevent the adc and support from getting the lead on experience there could be a mechanic that causes the experience shared is not split 50/50 but rather 40/40 or worse to allow junglers to still keep some sort of experience advantage while preventing an easy level 2 for top or bot by taking double golems. (would also need some sort of buff on them to make it harder to take at level one like a reduction on smite cd so that smite is almost required most camps)

just some things i thought about after reading alittle :B

Seeing as your avatar is Kassadin, could you p lease make him able to jungle at a decent speed? It would look like a lot of fun to see kassadin jungling

Wow, wouldn't that make leashing impossible to do, though?

Question: Does this mean that skills like Tiger stance on udyr will be more effective then Phoenix stance?
Your input is appreciated

So you couldn't or wouldn't want to make the AP item also available for use farming creeps in lane more easily, like Madred's Razor can? Or will it just be similarly sub-optimal by not providing the extra damage against champions?

No, she actually does, once you pick up those gp10's and that sunfire cape your quite strong.
