Changes to Jungle Experience
Jungle’s role becomes essential in League of Legends Season 10, as there was a change in the Elemental Drake. When Riot decided to nerf jungle XP gain while buffing solo lane XP gain, it didn’t make any sense.
Riot game designer Kevin “Captain Gameplay” Huang tweeted that they are going to add around 20 EXP per minute from minutes four to 18 (half of what junglers lost) by using Monster Hunter so that junglers get more jungle farm post-laning phase. Attempt to break the funnel’s leg also.
Some of the expected jungle changes that Riot is planning in League of Legends are:
Monster Hunter Buff

- Krug camp XP and gold redistributed
- Massive Krug base XP changed from 55 to 36.
- Medium Krug base XP changed from 15 to 17.
- Small Krug base XP changed from 10 to 13.
- Large Krug base gold changed from 65 to 41.
- Medium Krug base gold changed from 10 to 12.
- Small Krug base gold changed from five to eight.
Blue and Red Buff
- Base XP changed from 115 to 110.

- Levels one to three are unchanged.
- Level four changed from 1.025x to 1.075x.

The patch 10.3 of League of Legends is going to be a big one as it is coming with a lot of balance changes. The nerfs, buffs and jungle XP twists are bound to bring a significant shift in the League of Legends game.
