Provided you get a good leash on the 2 main camps (Wolves and Rock Monsters) jungling without smite is perfectly possible. I take Smite to speed my jungle up and to secure Vilemaw. The difference early game between Smite jungling and smiteless jungling is pretty big...

Only champions that actually jungle very slowly and need it.

Lee Sin, Shyvana really don't.

But also it's preference.

Quick question, what is your jungle route for Lee Sin? Where do you get your leashes???

I take Smite on him to secure Vile and boost my early game exp gain...

You're obv. better than me at this map so what are your thoughts on Smite with Lee?

Its really good, it lets you speed clear the jungle and do a really quick gank. depends on the jungler though.
As sam said, its a preference.

I play a lot of lee sin jungle 3s and I prefer smite as well.

I start at the golems and don't really get a leash. Most people don't want to leash for you since creeps hit mid by the same time yours spawn. I then go to wraiths because its much safer, if by chance the other person wants to check to try to FB you at wolves, you won't be there (if you're there they could smite steal, do a lot of damage, etc)

curious as to how lee isn't slow pre 3. Getting to that 3 is pretty hard imo without smite. I just don't like how many pots i have to use up without it

Why doesn't one of you TT jungle experts write out a jungle guide... and then link to it to be helpful to all those who want to know how to jungle well.

STEP 1: Get a leash on Wolves or Golums and take it.

STEP 2: Use Smite on the main camp that you didn't get a leash on.

STEP 3: Take Wraiths.

STEP 4: Capture your ALTARZ

STEP 5: GANK DEM LANES (or hit the b button because you're scared of that 9/0 Darius)
