WW's level 6 gank is still one of the best setups to secure your lane kills. Two of the slower junglers have some of the most devestating Level 6's - namely WW and Fiddlesticks. Gank quality is something you can measure vs speed as a quality...if you want top speed, there are better choices. If you want reliable ganks to feed solo's kills, WW is a great choice.
Or here is an idea. Why don't I use someone else like skarner who can clear the jungle faster, do more damage, has suppression as well (a better form too...can move, Ya less range but flash solves that or an actual smart gank attempt) and is just about overall more tanky unless you go straight tank warwick.
You can not tell me WW's ganking power is actually good enough for him to be sub par everywhere else. Hell I would rather jungle with Wukong who's ult does more damage and knocks them up AND can even get someone who flashes if he is smart and saves nimbus.
There is just no way I see warwick viable over other powerhouse junglers. And 34% AS runebook? You do realize you are giving up so many other stats that will help in more situations. IE: Defense stats for teamfights.
I would even be willing to say Warwick is probably the least useful jungler now out of all the mainstream junglers. His damage is subpar, his speed in jungle is slow, and he is only really used as a 1 person stun bot. Which there are other champs that can do more in a teamfight to help their team.
Edit: Don't want to sound like an ass but I just see no way that you would pick WW over....Anyone at this point. He just doesn't do anything better than anyone anymore.
