From my understanding leashing will be useless now right? Since the target will just switch to the closest champion after being leashed.

Jungle monsters now attack the nearest target rather than attempting to chase their original attacker to make their behavior more consistent
So you removed leashing. Good job Riot this is exactly what was needed to fix the jungle

. . .

Some things are better left unchanged.

Statikk how Eve feels in the new jungle? she had really hard time in the current jungle since she doesn't have any sustain? The new jungle items suppose to help her or you want to leave her as an ap mid carry?
P.S. do you think she'll be good AD champ in S3? you was the one working on her rework and said she'll probably be hybrid/ad, but it turned a bit differently

Jungle Kha'zix? is his build path a lot better now? I'm sure his clear times are going to be great singe he can do imense single target damage with his Q when isolated. His W can provide nice AOE.

But what about the items man? He's an AD Caster, what are you doing about the items? The jungle changes don't mean much for an AD Caster such as myself without knowing what the items are!

Will there be any changes to the jungle related masteries? Are there any changes to runes to make choices like Life Steal a more attractive option in the jungle?

i dont think so, with the time you dance the leash, you'll just be attacking the camp instead. i think it will work out alright.

Does this mean you guys are getting rid of leashing? =O
This has already been answered, yes leashing is gone, but you can still help kill the big buffs before going to lane

When we first initially implemented the new leashing changes, champions with pets that could tank for them like Malzahar and Shaco would literally clear the entire jungle without taking a scratch. Since then, we've had to make jungle monsters deal some amount of bonus damage to pets and we're still trying to fine tune the number to make sure having pet tanks is an advantage but doesn't necessarily mean jungle invincibility.
It's impossible. Shaco is unbalanceable with numbers that apply to other champs. Just nerf his JitB into the ground.

Xyph already talked a little about AD caster items in general. Not specifically for junglers, though.
