Looking for some help. I have full armor pen runes / an HP quint, mana regen blue and yellows. Not going to buy more just to jungle.

With smite, I can't even kill golem at level 1 unless Alpha procs. Too risky. Everything else feels WAY too slow for a jungler using smite. So what gives?

Don't start at blue as Yi. Do the Golems by red first, then wraiths, wolves, then golem, and finally go back to red. Get one level of Alpha to start, then max Wuju then do as you please.

Yes you do. Smite the first golem then smite should be up by the time you do blue.

You need smite if you want to get out of jungle in finite time and you're not extremely lucky with alpha procs. I don't think you need that much mana regen runes. I wholeheartedly recommend you armor yellows.

Crit runes are better for jungling than armor pen. Also, you can start at Blue OR at the golems as Yi, but to start at blue you're going to want some cooldowns and/or crit runes to chop it down faster.

Masteries I take are 1/18/11 or something along those lines: smite, armor and reduced dmg from minions and stuff in defense, and buff durations in utility.

After you get blue, you should be level 2, so grab W. Heal up with pot and W and continue through the jungle. I find it to not be too bad, the only time I had trouble in jungle as Yi was when my team stole Blue xp and I had to go back to base to heal up too early.

Alright I'll give it a go. How RNG reliant is this jungle yi (alpha)? Seems like it gets really really tough to get Golem at 3-4 if you didn't proc a lot early on.

No no no,, dont listen to these buffoons

You start with Wuju.. and you can do blue easy at lvl 1 with the aid of a health pot

shouldn't matter what runes. i did it everytime with armor pen, but i also did it everytime with ATsp and some crit chance

sooo ya. you can start at blue with Wuju and smite

^ I jungle yi all the time and you'll have to start at the two golems then move your way up, ignore red then go to blue, leach some eexp then kill the blue.
