League of Legends (LoL) Question: How viable is jungle Garen now that the 5.16 changes are out?

    How viable is jungle Garen now that the 5.16 changes are out?

    I've seen jg Garen played before, and while some of his ganks against enemies that cant escape were good, his ganks(that I have seen) generally don't work and his camp clear was mediocre at best. However, with the new passive in his ultimate in this patch,I'm wondering if jg Garen is any more plausible. The Dead man's plate helps a lot with his movement speed and his ultimate's passive seems like it would help him with ganking certain targets, I'm not sure if it's enough...

    I'd also like to add that his W( Courage ) gives him 1 armor and MR for killing a large monster, giving him some more tankiness jungling.

    He is still pretty bad in the jungle.

    His kit was barely changed and that was why no one really played him jungle
    0 cc no instant gap close and **** scaling = not so good. ofc u can play him if u want he def works ok just like any other meh jungler.

    i dont think so. like, i am very noob so dont blame me if i am wrong but i think a good jungle needs to have CCs. like elise with E, lee sin with E E R for pickoff, etc... so garen just have 1 cc that is he silence. and he cant duel well with a LOT of strong junglers in this meta so i dont think he is viable YET. (sorry bad english still learning)

    You don't need CC to be a good jungler. Nidalee has no CC & she is still a top tier pick for jungle.
