Stattik, are you placing on removing the need to purchase GP10 items on tanky junglers such as Skarner, Hecarim, etc.

This makes me incredibly happy to hear! I hate how passive players get rewarded and agressive players get punished. if you play strong and push, you put yourself at a disadvantage for playing better. Why try when all you have to do is turtle the tower and receive kills/assists from the jungle?

Is nid going to become a viable jungle? this could be done if you let her turn into couger at lvl 1.

The Hunter's Machete actually has no raw stats but instead increases your damage dealt to jungle monsters by a % and also adds bonus true damage to your basic attacks against jungle monsters.

The item then branches off into 2 upgrade paths one being Madred's Razor and the other being a new item focused more towards non-autoattack based champions called the Spirit Stone.
Can you just list the items or do we have to beg Xypherous? He doesn't seem to want to post anything.

Also, are armor values being looked at? currently most carry junglers seek to lower the neutrals to 0 armor through runes/masteries, with the lowering of flat penetration in masteries and runes, it might be harder for guys like trundle to compete with mixed damage carries like shyvana and jax due to their ability to rune for lifesteal or flat AD.

Thanks for doing this Q and A, btw

how is olaf? i am sad that he is rarely played anymore. He was made to be high sustain but doesn't shine in the current jungle. I know the gold and being able to rush wriggles will help, but will he be able to survive?

Dude seriously stop with these posts and post the season 3 date or at least give us an approximate date. This is ridiculous.. we are not even asking for a patch at this moment... just asking for a short notification that just says "We are working on it, might take several more days, hours, weeks etc.." I don't get how Riot has time to post the jungle update that would be happening in season 3, but can't find the time to actually give us an approximate date of the patch. It seems like you guys have not finished the patch and still working on it based on the posts you guys are posting. It doesn't even seem like a debugging problem or even beta testing.. sibar just give us a date!!! or a post on the patch! SIBAR!!!!!!!!!! GANGNAM STYLE
