Ok, so I mainly play jungle as my main role, even with the new jungle. I presently have almost 8k IP and am looking for a new champ. I main champ Maokai and I am quite potent as him, despite new jungle. I also bought Shyvana, Skarner, and Olaf all fairly recently (though Olaf was most recent). My main champions who I play mostly and I jungle with are:


A few people I was thinking of getting are: Xin Zhao, Sona, Udyr, and Volibear. I am not sure who or which to get, and I am not sure of the performance of each of these champions given the changes since the patch.

I remember playing both Xin Zhao and Volibear a while ago and having decent results with them (played Xin Zhao in jungle and Volibear as support bottom). Recently I tried Udyr and Sona in just a bot game or two and they were fun as well.

As stated, I am a main role jungle player and that's what I go to first, I can go support or top if needed too, but I prefer jungle. Also, if I don't jungle I usually support and I do not have many supports, I usually go Maokai and just play support role =P.

So there ya go, I am looking at what to do with the IP and am seeking some advice. If you could give some insight or help regarding who to get and why (whether they be out of the ones I listed above or not).

Thank you for any help, input, or advice regarding my question(s).

Well If you are looking to branch out your support line up then if I may, I recommend Morgana for her ability to tie down an opposing champ damaging them over time and opening the door for a gank.

To address which of those four champs. If your looking to single out a peticular foe then Xin Zhao is who you want. His Q/R can easily keep your target out of position.

Volibear is my go to damage dealer with his W that can literally finish off a half health tank in one bite{note: armor penetration is typically needed in that case.}. He does good as a support but even better in the Fighter/Jungler role.

I have not played a lot of Udyr though he is in my opinion unparalleled in versatilaty; From the ranked matches I've seen He brings several play styles to the table from jungler to carry to tank. Sona is just simply Awesome just as good as Soraka, but you don't need to select anyone to affect them with your spells the only other I could recommend is Janna.

For additional tips and tricks I have put together a playlist to provide helpful insight. I hope this helps ya.
