Summoner Spells Back to Top

This depends of how much confident you are with jungling and with Nautilus. 
I'm only used to the 4.png11.png matchup, but if you feel like invading you can also pick 14.png11.png, but remeber that in this case your Q nautilusanchordrag.png on a wall is the only escape you have. 

The most picked, and the one with more wins is 4.png11.png and there only a few champs that can play with other macthups.

Masteries Back to Top

As you can see, thisis not the usual 12-18 mastery tree, but it works perfectly bc you have everything you need on nautilus as a jungler. 


You can change your tree as you want and how it fits to your way of jungling / ganking. Make some try and find the perfect one for you!

I always star with the shield, casting it 2 sec before gromp spawn. It makes me kill it without taking much dmg, sometimes if my laner tank it (i don't know why they do it, but in bronze it happens, lol.) i don't take anydmg at all, so i can go to blue camp and kill it very easily. 
I max W and then E. At last i max Q because i don'treally need a shorter cooldown on it in the early/mid game. I land it on the champ for the gank and use it to go away after he is dead / i see i can't kill him. 

As always, try sometimes and find what's the best way for you. 

Items Back to Top

Starting Items

    You can both start with the regular machete or with the mana one. If you follow the gromp->Blue->wolves line, you don't need much mana regen as long your blue buff lasts. And if you don't meet the enemy jungler of get executed, blue buff will last until you kill the golems. Rigt now i use the mana regen one as he gives me more sustain and helpme farm more.
    FIRST BACK IF YOU ARE ALREADY GOING TO GANK. Be sure to have enough gold.
    FIRST BACK when you got invaded or the enemies are snowballing into your jungle. Put some ward and make them know who is the jungler owner. When you have enough gold for closing the item, change it into the blue one, that is more usefull in fight.
    This should always be an option

Core Items

    Choose a pair of shoes that fits you well and rush them earlier as possible.
    This is my usual full tank build. REMEMBER: There is not an absolute build for all the situation. LOCKET IS NOT COMPLETELY VIABLE NOW
    are you fed?
    Some times i build Nautilus like this. You run so fast and you never die. Never OOM. Lovely.
    funny tank ad build. fits well with passive.
    Nice slow + nice control in fight and lot of healt
    NEED ARMOR?
    NEED MR?

VS

Katarina

Easy

You can easily counter Kata (and all the assassins) with your skills.
If kata is spamming crazy and is going to deathlotus.png (you know she will do it if she shadowstep.png on you allies while you are teamfighting), you can nautilusanchordrag.png or nautilusgrandline.png her and her ult will be stopped. 
She will be stunned already and die so fast because she's a squishy as hell champ. 

VS

Rengar

Easy

You actually can 1v1 him at lvl 3 and get out of the fight with a kill, especcially if the enemy rengar has no kills or is not a smurfing challenger (lol), if he is not very experienced i guess you can kill him easily, bc as a full cc champ, you counter every single assassin in the game (maybe except shako)

VS

Shyvana

Hard

VS

Vi

Hard

She's just the anti-tank tank, so she counter you everytime no matter what. 
Avoid picking him against her in a rank game

VS

Yasuo

Medium

When yasuo is doing freaking dmg, say all your team to build 3143.png for counter him. You don't care if the adc don't want to buid a defensive item, tell them that it's really more usefull against a fed yasuo than any other dmg item. Build it as soon as possible if enemies have a yasuo. 
To counter yasuo dmg, you can stop him while he's spamming yasuoQ.png and before he can yasuoR.png. Like against katarina, you can nautilusanchordrag.png while he try to know up you allies, or nautilusgrandline.png if there are a lot of minions. 

GANKING Back to Top

Ganking with Nautilus can be so effective or the biggest flop ever. 
Make sure to have mana, and ward the bush where the enemies could gank you. 
GANK FROM THE BLUE SIDE:
You are going to gank in the top lane from the blue side.  Place a 3340.png or a 2043.png in the tribush on the red side (the one that you would walk into if you kill the red side golems and go invading te blue side passing on the top of the baron) warding-at-top-lane.jpg
(image from boosteria.org) 
One of the two wards in the other bush should be there from the toplaner. 
For the gank, wait the enemy to push a bit. If he don't push or stay def consider ganking later. If you think you can gank anyway don't lose your time and your exp. Go in the tribush and ping your ally toplaner you are coming. Let him engage the enemy and force him to chase your ally. Come out of the tribush and nautilusanchordrag.png him. 
The best way to not make him escape is nautilusanchordrag.png nautiluspiercinggaze.png 2xAA nautilussplashzone.png
If your toplaner isn't sleeping on his farm and he have some dmg, he should be death. Try your best to not take the kill but only the assist, your laner need advantage. 

Now you are going to gank mid. It's the same of the toplane. Signal you are coming and put a ward between wrait camp and red camp. The line bush should be already warded with a pink / regular ward from your midlaner. Warding-at-midlane-league-of-legendeees.
(image from boosteria.org) 
Now that we don't have green ward anymore, so it's not that easy to have all this wards in a single laneas long you can carry 2 wards of your regular trinket and place only 1 pink per player, but make your best to have more ward as possible and have a decent vision. 
When you are ready to gank, be sure you midlaner is not pushing and the enemy are instead. Position your self between the wrait outer wall and the bush, and do your combo. Be sure your midlaner is readu to engage with you and he is not OOM or low life. 

Let's gank bot!
 attachment.php?attachmentid=5609
(image found on google, can't see the original website)
This is pretty much what you should see in bot lane as wards. Adc and support should collaborate and placing wards so you don't have to ward too much. I pref have a pink ward in the 3rd spot. If you are scared, or the first enemy tower is already gone, you can ward in bush right after the red side gromp. 
For a succesfull gank wait as always the enemy to push. Be sure that the botlane has saw you, ping ward, and engage with your combo. If you see your teammates are not coming to help you, go away and try not to die. 
Especially in low elo, most times your teammetes sleep on their farm and ignore you. Don't go 1v2 even if you are fed, it's kinda risky. 



REMEMBER: 
Prefer ganking a winning lane. Force opponent to push even if he is losing, and kill him once again. It's useless go gank a 0/7 allied and a 7/0 enemy, bc you would die, you laner would die too and the opponend would get a double kill. Be sure to save the lane before it's completely lost. 
Ganking winning lane will make you feed and will not let your enemy shut down you laner. 

Buy PINKS everytime the one you put before it's killed. They don't expire but they are visible. 
Be sure to put them in the right way to make them show you more map they can. 

WHAT CAMP SHOULD I START? Back to Top

There are a lot of option and a lot of opinion. 
There is a video on youtube that explains why is better to start red camp and not the gromp one, if you would like to know why, there is the video.
 

I don't approve it so much, but it's viable if you are confident. 
It gives you the same dmg on the second camp, bc the red buff and the gromp one actually give the same dmg the monsters. I guess in high elo it's more playied, and i'm sure in low elo I would be flamed if i start red. 
Most of the times the botlane say to you "if you start red i don't help you", but i really don't know why. 

In LCS botlane start with the opposite buff of the jungler for hit lvl2 faster. 
I think it's really good but not viable in low lvl or low elo like bronze silver or gold. 

So i usually start gromp no matter what, especially with nautilus that needs blue for clearing the rest of the jungler. If you want to start golems / red be sure to have enough mana and life when you engage the next camp.  Golem start can be usefull if is your first time at jungling or with nautilus so you can stun monsters and lose a little less healt. 
START WITH THE GROMP: 
If you start with the gromp, cast your nautiluspiercinggaze.png 2 seconds before it spawn and smite it when it come. Kill him only with autoattacks, then go for blue. 
I never smite blue, i don't really need it, and i save my smite for red camp. If you are too low after blue, don't go wolves but farm river monster instead. It gives you a ward for the allied laning and the time to regenerate some health without losing time and exp. 
Farm wolves without smite and then go for red. 
Try your best surviving to red using pots (don't spam it when you farm blue, only use one if you really need it.) and if you have enough life, farm golems of wraits. If you are low life you can choose to farm the other river monster or go back in base. 

Farm as long as you need to do a decent gank, then go to the lane you would like the gank and follow the GANKING sections.
