If your top is 3\0 without your help, and your bot is 0\3 without your help, don't be a chode, go bottom.

My best advice for Jungling is start with the Wolves -> Blue route ( preferably with a leash). Analyze your potential ganks carefully. If you have a bad early game, you will most likely have a bad mid and late game. As for Ganks, gank as often as possible without hurting yourself or the team. For example, if you are amumu, don't gank top engaging in a 1 v 2 with xin and cho'gath. You will most likely die.

All in all. Be smart when Jungling. Practice in bot games a few times before trying it in pvp.

Being a jungler is not about helping whoever is getting dominated. If bottom is 0/3 because they are foolish and overextend, the best you can do as a jungler is hold tower while they respawn or go back to base. Just let them know that they should only last hit minions and should not go past the river unless it is warded. Over-extending is the worst thing anyone could do, and people often blame the jungler whenever they make mistakes like over-extending. I main jungling and sometimes it can be better to not gank bottom if they are being foolish or are completely countered in every way. Too many times in the past have I gone to gank bottom only to give their adc a triple kill because our bottom doesn't know what they are doing.

Here are some good routes depending on where you start-
blue: have help from mid and/or other people in the lane next to blue
start at wolves, go blue and smite it at <490 health. if your character can gank this early, look at mid or top for a gank, if not, go wraiths. After wraiths go wolves again since double golems will do too much damage compared to red, then go to red because your smite will be back. then gank where you can or go back to base to get whatever you need.

Red: same thing as blue with getting help
Start at wraiths, then get red (burn smite on him) then you can go to golems if you want then wraiths again or wolves, this is kind of dependent on who you are jungling with since if you start red then you are a pretty high ad champion and can clear golems pretty easily. So if you choose golems then get them and then wraiths and go wolves then blue. The problem here is sometimes with AD champions is that they might have trouble with blue after the clear if you are not level 30. It is fine to go back to base and get blue after.

Try to say times in chat when blue/red respawn. They have a 4 minute respawn and if you are a counter jungler then you can go to the other blue at around your blue spawn to steal if since the times will be roughly the same within a few seconds.
