The reason Wriggle's is not as desirable in the current jungle is two-fold:
1) Clearing the jungle is currently really easy. Jungle monsters fall over to almost any item combination.
2) Clearing the jungle has very little reward. There is no point into putting gold into being able to farm it efficiently if it gives you hardly anything in return.
The jungle difficulty and reward increases make Wriggle's a more attractive and effective item.
In short, I don't think it needs a buff.
