I don't think people really understand her yet. If you watch high elo streams, you'll see people complaining about how she takes too much damage in order to do her job (despite having a shield for 10% of her max health that activates on a low cooldown) or that she doesn't do enough damage if you build her for bulk (despite her armor penetration and ability to deal damage based on the target's health). And further considering she has Malphite's ult on a slightly lower cooldown with more range and she has one of the fastest jungler clears, you'd think people would be all over her.
But hey, people also thought Elise was garbage for the longest time, and today she's top ban material. --- http://i.imgur.com/7Wah6.jpg I'm actually incredibly overly passionate and...whats the word...viscous? - EltoniaX
You guys should try Black Cleaver + Spirit of Elder Lizard rush, lots of CDR and damage early, then get a Warmogs. If you get the chance to farm any lanes your farm gets a little crazy. I saw XJ9 do the cleaver + elder lizard build a few times and I honestly think it's really nice. If you need to be tankier you can go like brut -> warmogs -> other stuff, obviously building more defense depending on game. --- Steam/LoL: F5in .:. http://youtube.com/SinOwns http://i75.photobucket.com/albums/i298/dinkidooda/F5.png
Because she's honestly not that great. She does the same thing coming out of the jungle that she does in lane. Goes all-in on a squishy target.
Her ganks are solid but her team fight presence is fairly weak. There are definitely better jungle options out there.
She's easily Amumu tier. Less mid and late game teamfight utility in exchange for not having a gigantic target on her back at level 2 that says "counterjungle me for free kills". Her ganks are just as strong, trading raw CC lockdown for more damage. She can tower dive effectively at 6 thanks to the stupid range on her R and her passive shield. You can run her as an anti-carry AD caster if you've already got strong initiation on your team, or as a tanky initiator if you don't.
Anyone who doesn't think she's a top tier jungler simply doesn't jungle or isn't thinking straight. --- Re: The Great Escape: A come-from-behind win. "Am I the only one who thought the topic title was about pulling the Houdini on some chick?"
