Nunu is about the same as he's always been. Decent clear time, super safe, high counter-jungle potential, and extremely potent ganks.

He's never scaled that well with items so that change to the new jungle doesn't benefit him greatly, but I'm sure he can find ways to still put that extra gold to use and further augment his team's AD Carry. =O

Hey statikk,

since jungle monsters will provide more experience and gold how will this balance mid laners that typically farm jungle camps ? a.k.a. Mordekaiser, Karthus.

Won't they get huge advantage over their enemy midlaner ?

So are these changes going to affect how well champs like shyvana counter jungle? Will we see less of it now if the jungle is overall harder to get through?

Will there be an upgrade for Hunter’s Machete that's aimed at AD casters like Riven?

That's why we made changes to the positioning and the attack ranges of the camp to make mid lane Wraith poaching a bit more difficult to do.

The jungle is also naturally harder and more resistant to AoE which mid laners had previously been exploiting to quickly farm the Wraiths.

It's still possible to do Wraith poaching, but it takes a much more significant amount of Health/Mana/Time to do so. This makes it a much tougher decision overall and not necessarily always a guaranteed 100% win.

Counter ganking is actually one of the things the team is worried about at the moment. Since more champions are clearing at lower health levels, they are more vulnerable to getting counter-jungled / ganked. Currently monitoring how abusive this can be.
