Nightblue3's Tips on Season 5 Jungle

Recommended Posts


Sustain Junglers (Fiddle/Warwick/Pantheon/Elise): Start first buff(leash) to second buff(smite it) camp afterwards

Non-sustain/low sustain junglers(Rengar,Kha'zix,Wukong,Udyr): First camp(strong leash) to first buff(smite it) to second camp, back and buy jungle item, then second buff

Try to smite red buff at the perfect hp or when it's lower than your smite damage to get maximum hp out of smiting it (it heals for your % current missing hp)

TESTING Jungle Clear Speed/Routes with Jarvan:

blue side | red start | no smite leash | to blue buff | camp afterwards ::: | you have to back afterwards Level 2: 2:18 Level 3: 3:14 Ganking Time: 3:14 with 3/4hp

blue side | golem start | no smite leash -> to red buff -> wraiths afterwards -> go back and straight to blue Level 2: 2:28 Level 3: 2:54 Ganking Time: 3:45

blue side | gromp start | no smite leash -> to blue buff -> wolves -> go back and straight to red Level 2: 2:08 Level 3: 2:54 Ganking Time: 3:48

Alternative options (still needs testing): smite your blue after leash , do gromp wolves after ::::: smite gromp after leash do blue wolves after

purple side | blue start | no smite leash -> to red buff -> camp afterwards Level 2: Level 3: Ganking Time:

purple side | gromp start | no smite leash -> to blue buff -> wolves -> go back and straight to red Level 2: Level 3: Ganking Time:

purple side | golem start | no smite leash -> to red buff -> wraiths -> go back and straight to blue Level 2: Level 3: Ganking Time:

XP Table (Will work on later):


First camp gives 300 xp, buff gives 200 xp. second gromp gives 160?

Champion Notes(Jungle Items):

Aatrox(*Skirmishers or Rangers->Devourer)

AD Malzahar(Rangers->Warrior)

AP Amumu(Rangers->Magus)




Eve(Stalkers or *Rangers-> *Warrior or Magus (still needs testing, try warrior then trinity force)) *Save chilling smite for ganks*

Fiddlesticks(Stalkers ->Magus)


Hecarim 21-9(Rangers->Warrior)


Kha'Zix(Rangers->Warrior, Max W Evolve W every game? ) ** be very careful pre level-3 **

Lee(*Rangers or Poacher->Warrior)


Master Yi(*Skirmisher's or Rangers-> Devourer)

Mundo cloth start(Rangers->Juggernaut)

Nasus(*Rangers or Stalkers -> Juggernaut) *try juggernaut into trinity force (maybe finish trinity before juggernaut)*


Nocturne(Rangers or Stalkers or *Skirmishers (still needs testing)-> Devourer

Nunu(Rangers->Juggernaut) 9-21


Rammus (Ranger's -> Juggernaut)

Rengar(*Rangers or Skirmishers->Devourer) ** be very careful pre level-3 **


Shaco(Rangers->Warrior) ** Will do more testing for tank shaco (full tank after Warrior) & DPS shaco (shiv/tiamat) ** *test ap quint shaco*



Skarner(Rangers->Warrior or Juggernaut(Still needs testing)

Tank Amumu (Rangers->Juggernaut) * if you are going to play amumu go AP quints or clear will be hard *


Udyr(Rangers->Devourer) ** need to test Rangers->Juggernaut ** Skill order: R,Q,E,W Max Order: R>W>E>Q make 2 rune pages: 1 attack speed runes/masteries | 1 cdr runes/masteries

Vi(*Rangers or Skirmishers(if they have invis champ)->Warrior) ** be very careful pre level-3 **

Volibear(*Rangers or Skirmisher's, still needs testing -> Juggernaut)


Wukong(Rangers->Warrior) ** be very careful pre level-3 **

Xin Zhao(*Rangers or Skirmishers -> *Warrior or Devourer)

Zac *ap quints* (Rangers->Juggernaut)


This color means the champion did really well (high tier jungler)

This color = unsure, needs more testing

* = More likely to get this item


Raptors, Gromp, Wolves, Golems 100 second spawn

Crab 180 second spawn

Razor Sharp(Oracles) lasts for 90 seconds

DOs & DONTs:


Counterjungle (leave one little monster) ** Clear buffs completely if you have time so you can get the timer and xp **

Smite Wraiths

Smite enemy Wolves

Try to save smite for wraiths if you don't need it to kill buffs

Start bot side (on the golem camp/gromp) with carry junglers (rengar,kha'zix)

Ask for strong leash (to 10-20% HP on first camp)

Buy Skirmisher if they have invis lane champ (akali,talon,rengar,shaco,vayne) if you can afford to (not talking about gold, talking about jungler needs)

Juggle (run back and forth to reaggro dragon while it's charging up it's auto attack) dragon (very easy to do now)


Smite Crab (unless contested)

Buy Stalkers on carry junglers who farm (Rengar, Kha'Zix, Jarvan)

Try to do risky barons

Early dragons with non sustain junglers

** You can smite any camp if you are going to back afterwards, or wraiths are not up **


Harder to maintain vision control & start dragons in this patch

Tank Junglers are a lot better in this season due to itemization, scaling, and carry junglers having a tougher time early. (Does not mean tank junglers are better than carry junglers)

If you are playing a feral flare (devourer) jungler, buy it ASAP to start stacking

Hybrid (AD/AP) champions highly benefit from first dragon, securing it becomes priority

Hard to make poacher's effective because of the long respawn timers of camps

If you are playing a carry jungler and don't get a good leash on your first camp (golems/gromp) just do your first buff after and go back (level 2) straight to your second buff

General Statement:Efficiency of jungle items (best to worst): Rangers>Skirmishers>Stalkers>Poachers

@[member='Im_Tony'] thanks for the feedback. I watch a lot of Nightblue3's streams because he's one of the best to learn from. He talks out his decisions and goes through a lot of information.
