New junglers for season 3

#1thedeadgopherPosted 12/5/2012 7:40:34 AM
Just wondering what people have tried and found to work.

I just tried out Taric running 11 1 18 masteries and it worked surprisingly well. Decent clear time, no problem with sustain. Just in a custom though. I had tried him out a couple times in season 2 with good results and he seems quicker now.

A ton of characters are viable now as long as you give them Machete.

Skarner. Kha'Zix. Diana.

Single target elimination is crucial now with the scaling jungle.

I doubt Taric has a decent cleartime.

Those are the ones I've found to be the best at clearing camps and ganking. Once they burn their flash/ghost, the enemy is screwed. Kha has a massive gap closer and slow. Diana has a massive gap closer and pull-back/slow. Skarner has a MS/AS buff and a stun that pulls them back into decimation range. This season, jungling is going to be very aggressive to keep up with all the new builds. Gonna have to shut down the enemy before they build so you can get fed.

Nocturne can be built more battle-mode style now. Still a work in progress, but I have found machete+5->boots/madred->avarice/wriggles works nicely, then getting iceborn gauntlet and ghostblade + w.e you want works nicely. I still use 9-21-0 though, havent tried 21-9-0 yet. cant rely on soloque laners to realize they need to actually fight the golem with me now if they want ganks pre-6 minutes.

How do you survive without merc treads for the tenacity and also why would you use iceborn, that seems extremely crappy on Nocturne who is the complete opposite of spammable abilities.

This. I used it on noc last night and regretted it immensely.

I'm trying this build tonight for noc:
14/16/0 to get lots of AA damage reduction for my ganks.
Machete + pots
Early vamp sceptre
Boots > greaves
Wits
Machete >spirit stone> spirit of the golem. HP, armor and tenacity OP (I will try Mercs and spirit of the lizard as well)
Aegis
Hydra

Maybe throw a sightstone in; not sure. Gives plenty of bulk and attack speed, while Hydra will hurt a lot when you're in your trail.
