Can you or Xyph talk about this Machete item in more depth? Is it like a dorans item for junglers?

Will these changes make it so jungle monsters will attack Wukong's Decoy, as opposed to resetting like they do now?

So, you're reverting all of the horrible jungle rework and adding more improvements on top of it? It only took a whole season to realize how badly you butchered the jungle. Grats on doing something right this time.

As long as I can still jungle with Kayle, I'll be happy. AoE clearing, a heal and a damage amplifying effect should be enough to keep her viable, right?

I've really been enjoying her as my main jungler this season and it'd be a shame if I could run her in any lane like I've been doing.

You already mention Nautilus in another reply and that just leaves Hecarim.

Hecarim is my favorite character hands down, and currently suffers from the jungle in that he needs carry level gold. I play him anyway all the time because he's awesome and has pretty good aoe clear as well as strong ganks and ok sustain. So if you took the current jungle and made it give more money and xp, he' be the strongest jungler hands down, no need to play anything else. So I get that you can't do that, but with the focus going back onto single target dps, I worry that I'll be forced into buying wriggles. Currently with double or even single gp10 he's perfect, wriggles has a lot of wasted stats I don't like, he's a bruiser and most of his damage comes from his Q. I don't kow how to deal with this so I'm forced to ask, what will happen to the Doom Horse?

Kha'zix will be more viable. His sustain is actually not bad at all, just on a relatively long cooldown. With the small things being easier to kill, though, he can just take them out quickly and lay down the Qs on the bigger things.

Can you give an example of one of these new Items geared toward AP junglers?

What about Udyr?

Is Phoenix or Tiger more suited to the "new" jungle?
