New to the forum here, but had a question about Warwick. Trying to understand the patch notes, sound a little confusing. Is this a buff or a nerf? And what do you think about Warwick as a result of the changes? Viable? If so, I was curious, are mpen marks viable for his jungle? With the damage from his passive? Or do I need AS (which I don't ahve yet :()

his ult is a buff if you build attack damage.

his passive is a buff to his jungle speed, as it adds an on hit effect.

I feel his passive is the biggest buff to his top lane, personally.

Gonna ask a follow up if ya guys don't mind:

1. Do you recommend maxing q or w first in the jungle? I've seen guide that recommend both?

2. Do you build more offensively (AD/AS + Madreds) or more defensively (Wit's End, Frozen Heart, etc)?

The offensive/defensive question isn't really possible to answer definitively. That is going to depend on your team comp / enemy team comp. If you are the Jungle and your top lane isn't a tanky person (maybe Tryndamere), your middle is an AP (say Brand), and duo bot is Sona / Caitlynn, you are going to need to build tanky. Otherwise your entire team will be squishies.

Alternatively you might be playing solo top Warwick with a Rammus jungling, Cho mid, and Rumble/Mao bottom. I don't know why, but hey it could happen. At that point you can build more offensive items and probably be just fine :P

tl;dr be a team player and fill in the position your team needs.

It'll make the biggest difference in the jungle, by far.
Still great overall buffs. I like em.

1. ALWAYS Q, but start with W at level 1 ofc.

2. ALWAYS defensive. Madred's, Wit's and Wriggle's are the only offensive items you should consider buying.
