Jungle Elise

#1BattleRoyalRedyPosted 12/8/2012 2:51:16 PM
So I have a fair amount of ip and I'm looking to pick up a new champ. I play mostly jungle and am getting a little bored with the some of the champs I have now. Elise looks like fun and I know she got a few buffs not long ago, is she viable in the jungle?

It looks like her kit has a moderately high skill cap but is she even worth picking up let alone learning her ins and outs?

She can deffinetly jungle. Her spiderlings can tank camps now. I usually end up with half hp after clearing the whole jungle blue first then just go down the line (or up if you are purple side)

There are better junglers though, i much prefer her mid.

True, I know her home seems to be an ap top more often than not yet there is viability in the jungle correct? Her kit looks well suited for it I've just never seen any jungle Elise so I'm wondering if there is a real reason for that.

Id say shes pretty viable in the jungle, but better suited in lane. Shes got a pretty good kit for ganking

Well, she would be a jungler I would use just to have some fun with. If I wanted to put the super tryhard pants on I would go with a Mao/Shyv/Skarner/Mundo. I'm just looking for some opinions on if shes viable. Ofc shes not optimal, but I'm curious to know if anyone uses her in the jungle and what they had to say about her clears/ganks

Also I'm open to suggestions for just kind of out of the ordinary 'fun' junglers. Doesn't have to be Elise I guess. I just love her aesthetic so much that it's hard for me not to contemplate getting her. Maybe Kha'zix could be better suited?

Problem with Elise Jungle is that her play style is far more suited to spending a couple cool downs to poke down an enemy before trying to actually commit to a fight. This means that you have to rely on the lane you're ganking to actually initiate and start some damage before you show yourself and clean up, which is a dangerous responsibility to give laners in solo queue.

If you want a fun AP assassin jungle, I actually recommend the recent FotM Diana. She's somewhat of a non issue pre-6, but once she has ult , she can make ganks work entirely of her own merit, and can snowball hard enough to carry a team.

I was thinking Diana as well, I just fear she's gonna get nerfed into oblivion due to everything at ipl5. I do own her though and enjoyed her the few times I played her awhile back.
