Mid lane Galio is just better though. He is a really solid mid as long as you avoid and early ganks and brings great teamfight potential, also if you get an ap heavy opposition you can just face roll teams.

Yeah, I agree. I have learned this now (in the last day).

To me, it's not whether a champion is better mid or jungle. It's about what OTHER champion could be mid vs what OTHER champion could be jungle. It's opportunity cost. You want the best in role, not best for X champ.

After a bit, our Elise came back and I got 3 assists (1 at a time, cause they kept trying to kill an OOM Galio with low health. Spoiler alerts, they didn't). His Q does massive damage. He is a mana hog. Get Spirit stone and chalice. Then build whatever tanky things you want, and eventually pick up a Liandry's for lols. Get AS runes to get that clear up, and CDR blues and armor yellows.

Oh yeah, I forgot to mention. Bronze 2 solo queue, results may vary by Elo bracket.

Edit: Gal's Q also gives him nice team poke that Amumu can't do.
What wizardry is this.. 2 elises in solo queue? teach me griftrix

One minute after a random GD noob who has never played Galio before, learns about jungle Galio:

"I've been playing jungle Galio all of my life, few people know about this special build and even less have truly mastered his subtle nuances. The reason I play jungle Galio is because of his adaptability and dynamic gameplay."

I side with Griftrix on Mpen marks for jungling. Yes it is utterly useless for creeps. But it's amazing for mid to late game when you don't need the runes for jungling anymore and you were wishing you had runs for team fighting instead.

Mpen is amazing cause so many carries hardly build mres. So nukers like galio can do almost true damage.

I myself use mpen marks on sejuani. She had a bad first clear. Everyone knows that. But after that, she smooths out like butter. So making her hit harder in ganks and teamfights feels much more productive as it amplifies her great late game even more instead of trying to fix an already bad early.

@ Griftrix. Yeah Mpen sucks for clearing, but if your champ is meant for teamfights and the like. The penetration is real sexy once you learn to clear jungles safely in the early game.
