so leashing isnt possible anymore? is that what "Jungle monsters now attack the nearest target rather than attempting to chase their original attacker to make their behavior more consistent" means?

cause im all for it.

Actually just hopped on the internal server to do a jungle run with him.

To say the least, it's pretty impressive. His passive and Q debuff provide him with fairly good resilience in the jungle and the single target changes have definitely benefited his clear speed.

Couple this with what I know about late game Trundle with items (hint: it's pretty scary if he ults the right targets...), I think he has a better place in this new jungle.

I'm not sure if this is a stupid question but how exactly are these changes gonna relieve laning pressure?

If anything the stronger camps will pretty much only harm very early lvl 2 ganks where the jungler will definitely be too low to gank and might not have even started boots. Beyond that all a jungler needs to gank is just enough hp to get in, put in their cc, and get out. I'm confused as to how this is supposed to make laners feel safer about all-inning their opponents when, after about 5-10 min into the game, jungle ganks will still be the same.

Thanks.

Oh and another question I saw but that hasn't been answered yet:
Does the new jungle discourage stacking gp5s?

Exactly how "viable" is Kha'Zix in this new jungle? He's already barely scraping by with cloth and 5 potions in the current one, which is tragic for a champion labeled as a jungler (no, having a big gap closer doesn't make you a jungler, otherwise leblanc is a jungler too).

What about the already silly junglers in terms of ganks and jungling? For example WW with his ult, and xin with that burst damage.
