So whats the new role of a jungler?

Early ganks have been removed thanks to crazy buffed monsters, rendering gank heavy favorites like Lee Sin and Shaco useless. Bot is almost immune to ganks all game with the sightstone and removal of early ganks. AoE champs like Shyvanna with great clear times suffer from the op monsters making them much less viable. It seems the emphasis is now completely centered around junglers like Trundle and Olaf who are single target nukes that benefit from stronger monsters and are hard counter junglers. So now is the role of a jungler to just farm jungle and engage the enemy jungler for jungle supremacy rather than applying pressure to lanes by ganking?

Wards don't automatically make you safe from ganks.

the place isnt gonna be any more warded than before, these changes just make supports more viable and allow them to save gold on wards rather than buying them all the time

if wards really are making things harder for you, nag your support to focus on dropping some pinks, its not like they'll be struggling for gold anymore so can easily spend the extra on carrying a few

Lee Sin will hurt early from how bad the jungle beats him up. Shaco's actually better. Boxes=high health when clearing=one of the few junglers who can early gank.

Expect his win rate to go up more
