Summoner Spells Back to Top

Hi, I'm a Jungle main in League of Legends since Season 3 as well as leader of a team that plays Mario Kart Wii competitively to this day via the Wiimm-fi server


Welcome to this guide.

______________________________________________________

11.png is a necessity for Junglers in Season 6

4.png is crucial on 5.png as he has no escapes and his kit is designed for him to go in deep

12.png as a substitute for 4.png isn't a good idea but could work in lower elos

6.png as a substitute for 4.png don't unless you have to

Alternatively if your team needs a tank or you just prefer powerfarming and/or the scaling route then you can try this set:

Tzhopta.png


Also if you're running this set you'll obviously want to change up your build a bit, I would recommend:
1413.png over 1419.png
3748.png over 3074.png (optional mainly based on how much hp you're stacking)
- 1-2 offensive items into full tank

If you're going to be farming more rather than ganking and need the hp/mana after hitting 3 go ahead and level W to 2 instead of getting E

Items Back to Top

Starting Items

    Start with these 4 items (only 1 pot is needed generally)

Core Items

    get tiamat after the 2 hunter items, then upgrade to bloodrazor
    get mobis if your team needs help, swiftness if you have trouble sticking to targets or want to powerfarm/rotate, mercs if heavy cc, tabi if ad/auto heavy enemy team
    rush this after you have tiamat and jungle item (before or after upgraded boots)
    get both of these next in order based on necessity of armor/mr, unless enemy team is all physical or all magic
    buy this as last item or sell boots for it super lategame unless you need something else
    level 9

Situational Items

    additional armor items
    additional mr items
    good, but more situational items
    typically only after full build (iron if tenacity is needed)
    tank busters
3077.png
I like to rush tiamat because it really helps you powerfarm early, making it easy to keep up in cs and gank heavily or just get really fed off of cs/rotations alone

when I approach camps I'll usually activate xenzhaobattlecry.png (W), then auto attack reset with xenzhaocombotarget.png (Q), then right after the knockup activate 3077.png and xenzhaosweep.png (E)

If I need to xenzhaosweep.png (E) to a camp I'll do so and 3077.png as soon as I get in range, then activate xenzhaobattlecry.png (W) and auto reset with xenzhaocombotarget.png (Q)

◉◉◉◉◉◉◉◉◉◉◉◉◉◉◉◉◉◉◉◉◉◉◉◉◉◉◉◉◉◉◉◉◉◉◉◉◉◉◉◉◉◉

3056.png vs 3742.png

Cost: 2650 gold vs 2900 gold (250 less gold)

Health: 300 vs 500 (-200 HP)

Armor: 50 vs 50 (Equal armor)

Base HP Regen: +150% vs none (+150% bHP Regen)

Cooldown Reduction: 10% vs none (+10% CDR)

Passives: Builds up 20% speed over 2 seconds while near turrets or destroyed turrets vs Increase speed by up to 60 when moving to gain stacks that decay rapidly if cc'd, slowly decays when slowed; stacks discharge upon auto attacking dealing 1 physical damage per 2 stacks and double as well as slow for 50% if 100 stacks are used.

Actives: Prevent a turret from attacking for 3 seconds with a 2 minute cooldown vs nothing


I like Ohmwrecker a lot more especially with my playstyle, it's very useful for ending games when you otherwise couldn't or just taking down towers without minions

VS

- He'll almost always go for ganks constantly / try to take your camps or kill you, when you see him on the map you know you can act elsewhere if not countergank

How capable they are of invading you early: 9/10
Possible Counter Items for this Matchup: 3071.png3742.png3512.png

VS

Master Yi

Easy
- He will typically farm up as much as he can, you should be able to take his camps and kill him if he's not ahead
- If that doesn't work and he somehow becomes a problem, you should be able to itemize pretty well against him as his damage comes fully from auto attacks (mostly physical, some true damage)

How capable they are of invading you early: 3/10
Possible Counter Items for this Matchup: 3075.png3047.png3068.png

VS

Nidalee

VS

VS

Possible Counter Items for this Matchup: 3036.png3071.png3111.png

VS

- Not too hard to duel but can almost always get away from you

How capable they are of invading you early: 3/10
Possible Counter Items for this Matchup: 3071.png3068.png3153.png

VS

Rengar

Medium
- You don't want him to let him get fed. He doesn't farm very fast (especially early) so he'll look to gank lanes or kill you in your jungle
- Ward heavily, ward for lanes, preferably pink wards
- If you're ahead don't hesitate to deny and kill him

How capable they are of invading you early: 7/10
Possible Counter Items for this Matchup: 3056.png3068.png2043.png

VS

Sejuani

Medium
- Has decent/slow clear speed, pretty good ganks and really good team fighting
- You should be able to outfarm her and sneak dragons or other objectives when she's ganking

How capable they are of invading you early: 3/10
Possible Counter Items for this Matchup: 3036.png3071.png3065.png3102.png3190.png

VS

Shaco

Medium
- Squishy, very hard to catch unless he wastes his deceive.png
- Avoid killing the clone from his hallucinatefull.png
- Try to get deep wards asap so he doesn't set up any traps in your jungle jackinthebox.png

How capable they are of invading you early: 10/10
Possible Counter Items for this Matchup: 3074.png3068.png2043.png

VS

Shyvana

Medium
- One of the fastest clear speeds in the game
- One of the best duelists in the game
- Try to deny her with any chance you get but keep your distance and avoid dueling her unless you know you can kill her, she can easily get away or chase you with shyvanaimmolationaura.png/shyvanatransformcast.png
- Her early ganks are pretty weak in terms of cc, she probably won't do much in ganks unless someone is trying to fight her
- You can xenzhaoparry.png her away when she tries to shyvanatransformcast.png

How capable they are of invading you early: 7/10
Possible Counter Items for this Matchup: 3078.png3153.png

VS

Skarner

Hard
- Deadly ult
- Good presence around the map
- Can completely deprive you if he or his team is ahead

How capable they are of invading you early: 3/10
Possible Counter Items for this Matchup: 3102.png3111.png3139.png

VS

Udyr

Easy
- Udyr can be used many different ways but you should always be able to duel him regardless of his playstyle unless he's enough ahead
- He's very slippery however as he can spam udyrturtlestance.png/udyrbearstance.png so you'll probably just want to take what you can from him rather than chasing him

How capable they are of invading you early: 4/10
Possible Counter Items for this Matchup: 3111.png3056.png3065.png

VS

Vi

Easy
- Should be able to duel her in most cases
- When she uses viR.png to engage you can either xenzhaoparry.png her away before she reaches her target, xenzhaoparry.png her team away and 4v1/5v1 her, or xenzhaoparry.png her off her target
- Her ganks are mediocre until she hits 6, you should be able to outfarm her with this build and solo dragons a lot sooner

How capable they are of invading you early: 5/10
Possible Counter Items for this Matchup: 3124.png3068.png

VS

Volibear

Hard
- He farms pretty slow but has devastating ganks / fighting potential
- Try to outfarm and do anything you normally would but stay away from him unless you have a nice advantage over him
- Try to ward his jungle exits to alert your team if he's coming for them

How capable they are of invading you early: 5/10
Possible Counter Items for this Matchup: 3033.png3071.png3124.png

VS

Warwick

Medium
- Rarely ever ganks before he gets infiniteduress.png
- Has pretty good dueling potential throughout the game but you should be able to invade him and get as much as you can from him before he hits 6
- Make sure your laners have wards out when he hits 6
- If necessary, stay near your carry/carries and xenzhaoparry.png him off when he uses infiniteduress.png or xenzhaoparry.png his team away and xenzhaosweep.png onto him

How capable they are of invading you early: 1/10
Possible Counter Items for this Matchup: 3139.png3053.png3153.png

VS

Xin Zhao

Medium

I'm going to use this to say some things about the character you're using.


With this build you're aiming to powerfarm the map as efficient as possible (Getting 3715.png asap then 3077.png). I always plan out my paths constantly based on how the game is going in attempt to play efficiently as possible, I only advise ganking if you know you can get something and if that something will be more valuable than what you would otherwise get. You should be able to solo dragons very early and convert successful ganks or rotations into turrets and proceed to pick up every little thing you can (enemy camps, waves, kills) in between these rotations. This is why I prioritize scaling Runes etc., you'll almost always scale into a monster

VS

Zac

Easy
- Farms pretty fast for a tank
- Try to get deep wards down to catch him in places where he may look to zacE.png in for a gank
- In fights, look to xenzhaoparry.png him away from your team either when he zacE.png's in or starts his zacR.png

How capable they are of invading you early: 4/10
Possible Counter Items for this Matchup: 3009.png3033.png3153.png

Pros and Cons of Jungle Xin Zhao Back to Top

- Can solo dragons fairly early with correct builds
- Good 1v2+ especially with xenzhaoparry.png (R)
