Nunu is definitely a better jungler.
Malphites ganks are only moderate, so he's not the best jungler, but not a horrible one too.

Malphite can scream through the jungle once you get a wiggles on him.(the proc splashes with W) He also has very dangerous ganks once you hit 6.

Before both of those factors, he's a moderate jungler.

EVERYONE tears thru the jungle with a Wiggles.

A wiggles proc alone is worth 4000 gold of AD (vs creeps), on top of the 900 gold worth of true AD given. Someone with high attack speed will benefit the most, but that much AD will boost the heck out of ANY champ.

The measure of a jungler is how effectively they can get to the point of getting a wiggles.

^ Why would nunu get a Wriggles.



He's a good jungler. Try him yourself. Solo Dragon by level 4.

I would go for the Razors (1000g) and leave it at that unless you are going AD which is a rare Nunu build. Sell them when laning/jungling phase is over for something more useful.

Um guys... the question was about Malphite, not Nunu.

Malphite is a really good laner. His Shield is fantastic for mitigating laning damage taken from creeps and nukes. It basically lets him regenerate 70+ health in 8 seconds which is pretty nice.

His Shard is a very good harassment tool mostly cuz it only increases in mana cost by 5, vs most nukes which go up by 10 or 15. Damage is about average.


Basically, there is very little reason to jungle with Malph. While it is possible to do so, he is just not as efficient as many others. Not sure why he is supposedly Tier 1 jungler. I wasn't very impressed and he doesn't go with Razor/Wiggles like the AD guys which by itself means less efficiency.

He does ok, dont get me wrong. But with 4 other people on the team, surely SOMEONE would get a better suited jungler.
