BotRK on Jungle Vi?

#1Kat1184Posted 3/25/2013 6:07:43 AM
Feedback time!

I do not currently include BotRK in my jungle Vi build, which generally looks like:

Boots (Mercs or Swifties), Spirit of the Elder Lizard, Brut > Cleaver, Get Tanky/Situational

I really like Cleaver on my Vi- feels like an awesome item when you pick up an early kill or few, as it snowballs you really hard- and I don't feel like BotRk would have quite that same early snowball potential, but maybe.

If I were to buy the Blade- it would have to be after my spirit, and mean replacing cleaver with Blade. Because of her AA reset in E, I'm generally not a fan of Atk Speed items on Vi, and feel the old Blade (pre-improvement) was actually better for her. However, it seems like a fairly common item built on her.

I like the early baron potential it gives- but am not totally sold on losing that bit of HP/CDR that cleaver offers- along with the straight up "OK enemy jungler, lets duel and see who wins once you commit" that Cleaver gives... Once you get that 3rd apply of denting blows/cleaver stack on, the fight just swings so hard your way.

Should I look into replacing my brut/cleaver with cutlass/blade, or am I right in my original thinking.

PS. I kinda blow at using active items- so I feel like there is a 1/5 chance I'll just totally forget to use the active at some point. I *do* really like the early slow that cutlass gives though, I could see that securing a kill vi would otherwise lose out on.

I would suggest "get tanky" before Cleaver, unless you are doing incredibly well.

if its to replace a brut/cleaver then yes
The extra slow from the cutlass is insanely good for ganks with Vi since that's what she lacks, but BotRK costs a lot and delays tanky items by lot for a jungler

I like the BotRK but I make it later than most.
Lizard Elder-->Bruatalizer-->Vamp-->tanky-->BotRK

BotRK is the only offensive item you should get on Jungle VI.

Cleaver is far too good on Vi to replace with anything.

"So selfish them" would be their cry. And, who'd be brave to argue? Doin' what you people need is never on the menu!

It's great for securing dragon and baron. And the active helps a lot in ganks. If you're ahead then get it. If you're behind, it's probably too expensive.
