So I tried to jungle for the first time yesterday and since this is here, let me ask you something... in the early game when the jangler has cleared the jungle, gone back and healed.... what are you suppose to do if you are not strong enough to gank yet and the jungle has not respanwed yet? or maybe only the wraiths have

TrueSkillz 01-14-2013 08:11 AM

you are never to weak to gank. You dont have to get a kill in a lane for it to be a good gank. if they use a summoner skill then thats a good gank because you can come back in the next couple of minutes and gank again.

The jungle should be re spawned by the time you get back into jungle from base. It may depend on your jungling path as well.

What champ do you prefer to jungle and what path do you take with them?

Llesh 01-14-2013 08:23 AM

I was using tryn, and moving through the trees, not sure the path... i think it was big lizard, wraiths, golems... ty for clarifying that you dont need to kill to gank.... I have always been under the impression if you didnt kill them that you failed...

For people that dont know what they are doing may say you failed a gank but thats not true. Ill give you several situations and what happens after you gank and what you should do.

You gank and the enemy dies
You should help the lane push minions into the tower so the enemy loses xp and gold.

You gank and the enemy uses summoner skills
You should go back into jungle and continue to farm and gank that lane again before their summoners are off of cool down.

You gank and the enemy gets low and has to goto base
You should help the lane push minions into the tower so the enemy loses xp and gold. This will help your lane gain an advantage and it will make ganks later easier since your lane is winning

With Tryndamere I would use the following path
Wraith, Red, Gank Bot, 2x Golems, Wraith, Wolves, Blue.

you can back anytime if you need to heal.

Im not a big fan of tryndamere jungle because his ganks are not that great. I love the champion but have not jungled him in a long time.

hope this helps

Who is next?

Hi, I want to learn to jungle, but don't know with who. I heard WW is easy, but I've also heard he's weak. Is there a strong, relatively easy jungler out there and if so, what's their optimal path?

Also how do you know when to gank (in general)? I know if the enemy pushes the lane that's a good time, but is there any other times?

Finally, are there any good guides out there for jungling that you'd reccomend?

Thank you.

If you are just starting out jungling I would start with an easy character.

Pick one of the following
1. Warwick
2. Udyr
3. Trundle

all 3 of those are pretty easy to jungle.
Just work on clearing jungle first then work on ganking

I try and gank at lvl 2 on every champ i play. learning to gank is just something that you get better at over time.

Pre Rune / lvl 30
Blue, Wolves, Wraiths, Gank, Red.

Full Runes & LvL 30
Wolves, Blue, Gank, Wraiths, Red, Golems, Gank

I just look at the lanes and see if the enemy is out of position if so i make my way to them and attempt a gank. like i said above there is really not a bad gank.

If i get enough interest i may start streaming to help lower people out. also feel free to add me in game and message me and let me know you want a mentor so i can group you correctly. I dont mind helping out

I dont really use guides. i learn from trial and error but here are a few i found

Hello :) Great thing you are doing here! I am a new player who is hoping to learn about jungling as I feel that ganking/jungling would be my playstyle and seems really fun to me so far.
I have only played a few 5v5s, mostly 3v3s. I unlocked Shaco and I am hoping to get better with him.

I start with JitB, Hunters Blade, and 5x HP. The first thing I do is rush to Blue Golem and try to get as many JitB down as I can before he spawns (4-5). I then smite him on appearance and the whole group dies almost instantly. Next is wolves just below, then across mid to wraiths. By now Smite is cooled down and I place 2 JitB in front of Red Lizard then use Smite and finish them off. Then I start Ganking lanes, opting for Decieve and then Shiv (not sure which I should get first after JitB).

What I need to know is what kind of build should I be aiming for, what kind of skill setup I should choose, and how to keep up my level. I always find myself falling behind on levels because I dont really know how to jungle outside of what I just mentioned previously.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!
