Hey guys, I'm fairly new to League as I just started in June. I wanted to know, what ability should I max out first for jungle Udyr. I heard he's really fun, and most games I play with one, they wreck, so I wanted to get him. Any tips on Udyr are much obliged as well.

personally, i go AD jungle udyr. This means i max my Q 1st. Thats about the only thing that is simular compared to what i know of most others do.

Others from my knowledge, will Max Q 1st and then choose 2 other abilities to max with the last only 3 since u can put 5 stacks in ur R. Most will make the 3 either W or E. W if u want to be tankier and more lifesteal and E if u want better chase and stun. People will get 1 rank in R for AoE to help better clear jungle

For me, I max Q, E, W then lastly r. I honestly dont even put a single rank in R until i absolutely have to. Why bother getting it to clear if i attack fast and hard? This way, i have the most damage/AS from my Q, with the best chase/Stun from my E as early as i can get it.

When it comes to building udyr, people usually go tankier Udyr. I dont disagree and i go a LITTLE beefy sometimes, but i prefer hard damage and sustain. but this changes depending on the enemy team and how im doing in game.

So i prefer Tiger stance!!! tho ive done Phoenix as AP and it isnt bad but i play better AD and Tiger.

Hope this game you a little help on what you want. Good luck!

Pheonix in the jungle, tiger for top lane. Here's why:

Pheonix has a better wave clear and is therefore better to clear monsters in the jungle (R first).
Tiger is better single target DPS and is therefore better against a single opponent (top lane - Q first).

Of course this doesn't mean you can't switch them around, it's just the preferable/optimal way to go.

It also depends on your team. If your team has a ton of magic damage on it, go Q.
If your team has a ton of physical damage on it, go R.
In the jungle, either go Ancient Golem (if you really want to be tanky and forgo a lot of damage--your main role will be stunning during teamfights & doing a bit of aoe dmg with R), or Feral Flare (works with Q or R).

(With AG I'd build only one non-tank item (rarely): wit's end. Otherwise just go for things like randuins, spirit visage/bveil/locket, sunfire cape, and so on. Combine health + resists.)

With FF I usually build hybrid: wit's end, iceborn gauntlet, and max R (synergy with the wit's end shred, better in teamfights). (Also get randuins, generally don't need more MR, but if I do, get locket or bveil.)

R lets you farm the jungle much faster. So if you are a passive/farming jungler, go for R.

I tend to go FF if my top is a tank, otherwise AG.
