Best New Jungler for Me
I'm looking to learn three strong champs for every role and focus on them in Ranked play. Right now, I'm planning on focusing on Amumu and Lee Sin in the jungle. I was looking for advice on the third as I was having trouble picking and don't have too much experience in the jungle. I'm between Nautilus, Nocturne, Shyvana and Skarner. Mainly, I'd like to learn the one that best compliments Amumu and Lee Sin and fills any coverage gaps they might miss.

Shyvana and Hecarim are very good choices if you don't mind the lack of CC.

Shyvanna is a really nice pick in the jungle.

Early Counter-Jungling is the best in the game for me anyways. Plus, her clear times get a little nuts by mid-game and it is very easy to effectively farm jungle, gank and steal their buffs without letting anything sit unattended for too long.

I mainly do Amumu if we need a tank, Lee-Sin if we need a strong ganking presence in an off-tank and Shyvanna if we need a strong counter-jungling off-tank or the focus on ganks isn't too high pre level 6.

Also, I love the flexibility of her jungle. I always do offensive masteries and runes and with kit she becomes very tanky mid-game regardless. This allows you to be very flexibile in your build...very easy to roll up into a nice tanky initiator for late game or you can start to snowball into a real damage threat with the right start.

Skarner is the best. Pulling people to their dead while they cannot do anything is amazing. Also, that is good to shut down carries that do not want to hinder their damage with QSS.

Try out some other ones like Cho and Alistar. Support/tank in the jungle allows other lanes to pick up more damage. Plus you get to smack people around.

Skarner :D That's my guide, and nocturne is my main and I plan to make a guide for him in the future.

If you have any questions about jungling feel free to add me in game under HyG Finnz.

My 3 champ for soloq jungle would be.. Lee Sin/Skarner/Udyr. That's just imo. Nocturne is a beast and my main but he's risky in soloq.

Warwick, Shaco, and Phoenix Udyr

Seems like it's between Skarner and Shyvana. I can see what Shyvana brings to the table that differs from Amumu/Lee Sin, her speed and ability to counter-jungle/control the map like a demon. What's the major advantage of having Skarner as the third? Aside from his ult, what does he bring to the table that these other two don't?
