Are the spirit items worth using in the jungle?

I only tried jarvan and khazix but should I just skip over it?

Of course not, the Spirit Items is why Jungling is fantastic now.

Wow. I have no trouble sustaining without them. The simple machete is all you really need.
I can't have 2k come out of my pocket to complete some half bit item.

IMO very few junglers benefit from them.

But I should mention, I prefer energy/no mana champs and usually jungle with them, so the mana regen is a huge waste.

The only jungler I use that I would consider is when I'm Diana for giggles, then the Spectral Wraith might be incredibly worth it.

The spirit items are amazing, build one on every jungler.

Every AD jungler should build Spirit of the Elder Lizard

AP junglers like Fiddle need Spirit of the Spectral Wraith

Tanky jungles need Spirit of the Ancient Golem

Most recent game our jungler picks Amumu and goes "I need hard leash and help to kill blue, jungling is so slow now"

So I go "Pick machete"

Amumu "No, I don't like it. I start with Hp regen"

Well it does depend on the champ, Lee and Shy still prefer Wriggles.

Sejuani though is absolutely fantastic with a Spirit of the Ancient Golem. I suspect Jarvan and Kha would benefit from spirit of the lizard elder. I suspect Amumu and Nautilus will need spirit items too.

I've only gotten into Sejuani and Shyvana jungle so far; love the changes cause it promotes passive farming until lvl 5-7 and less chance the enemy will invade. But yeah, Spirit is essential on Sej and probs many others.

pretty sure lizard elder procs on burnout ticks too.
