jungling without smite in the new jungle is a total troll, gonna take him ages to kill buff camps thus setting back his leveling

Certain champions don't need smite at all but if you don't take it you'll be considered a baddie because it is required to secure buffs. If you don't take smite and get baron buff stolen then gg.

His Iceball spam sort of makes Exhaust redundant and with mid and top packing ignites there's not much reason to take that either.

No. Nobody can jungle without smite. Period, thread closed. You cannot secure buffs without smite, you cannot secure dragon without smite, taking baron without smite is just crazy talk, you need smite to steal enemy buffs.

There's just too much smite has to offer to junglers for them not to take it. Saying no to smite as a jungler is like if the shop offered your ADC infinity edge for 1 gold coin and he said no.

instead of reporting peopel for being unskilled why don't you instead offer them advice on how to play better. Reporting for being unskilled is just retarded imo.

Nunu may choose to still take smite. Hitting their blue wraith can set back their jungler. You can also ward and smite steal their red if you are fast enough. However, since his Q IS a smite, another ignite, a ghost, a teleport... or back when it was still enabled PROMOTE would be more useful if not heavily counter jungling..

Mid - late game, nothing beats promoting bottom lane, then all pushing top. They either deal with the minion, or lose a turret. If they do deal with the minion you win teamfights. Promote with a guy pushing bot lane can give you a safe baron too. I miss that spell D=

I did have nunu in mind also when I posted this, I just didn't really feel the urge to try and list every champ that can no smite jungle.

still what I said is 100% true. just because they can, doesn't mean they should because it lowers their clear times. Clear times in itself is enough of a reason, and securing objectives by itself is also enough of a reason.

Between the two I'd consider no smite jungling assisting the enemy team, and trolling.

Probably because reporting for unskilled is fine.

Besides, there isn't really anything to say. If you are already in game without smite, you've already screwed up.
