I don't know if rushing Hydra is the best way to go but it works for me really well. Helps you farm super-hard and synergises really well with his AS and AoE passive. I usually play him if we need an assassin-anti-carry, if mid is more of a beefcake like Ryze or Gragas. I wouldn't pick him with an Akali though.

Nocturne loves you as well. It's actually a recording error in his VO that we never fixed. He's not supposed to say "darkness" when he ults. He's supposed to say "Who wants free hugs?" If you don't believe me, then why does he have those big hugging arms he holds out when he ults?

I actually play and love Top Nocturne.. but I can say..

Currently in s3.. if you're not a Utility / Tank jungler who rushes Locket/Legion in every single game.. you pretty much cripple your team.. and I'd say thats one reason hes not seeing a ton of play. Theres pretty much zero diversity in the jungle at the 'pro' level.

Actually, the truth is, he doesn't disrupt enough.

That is why he ain't used often, unless TSM use their global comp.

If not, any other S3 jungler can zone or peel like a boss, Nasus's Wither destroys the carry, Volibear will make you run like a girl or die, J4 can lock up people, etc.

Noc just dives, so then who is taking care of your own carries peel? For Solo Q he is strong as ****, but for pro teams, he isn't a top pick atm, viable, but not optimal.

its get hydra why hydra cause hydra pretty much gives him his passive for the entire game. Plus gives him another free aoe move.

This is why the ulti range needs to be buffed

Seriously, why so many nerfs on him? D:
He needs more love!
