Not so much a hug fan of this idea... They want to cripple the jungler role once again.

im still worried about this new mechanic effecting the flow of team fights from a stray attack that provokes the newly powered up jungle monsters

How does Hecarim fare in all of this? He was only just being discovered, I'd hate to see him fall back into unplayability.

Doesn't this mean that there will be no more easy leashes from mid lane? This may actually put champs that don't have some kind of ranged root less viable than others. For example, Morg will be able to leash better than someone like Cass because Morg can keep the monster in place while the jungler attacks it.
If the jungler attack the monster, he is also in range of the monster and will get hit.
Only if the jungler has more range (like Hec or Xin) that could work. But a 1-2 sec snare is not that strong there.
But a leash from morgana while the supporter and ADC attack and the jungler waits in the brush could be effective, but still way less effective than the current leashes.

It has no stats, only increases damage to jungle monsters, from there all you gotta do is slap on some defensive stats to make it suited for tanks.

Could we get some numbers comparing the gold generation of efficiently clearing all the creeps without ganking vs laning and getting around... 140cs in the first 20 minutes?


A.K.A., will we also possibly see champions who excel with high farm like Jax, Irelia, and Morde in the jungle?

Doesn't this get rid of the Superman leash? And make leashing in general more difficult?

More like it eliminates the 1 hit leash and run to lane thing. for a leash it'll be more like an assist, you'll sit there with jungler shooting it till it hits 1/4 to 1/2 health left then leave.

Doesn't that mean you can't leash anymore?
