Does a jungler ABSOLUTELY have to use smite?

Baron/Dragon steals aren't nearly as big in solo queue as people like to pretend. The real threat is the enemy jungler coming after your buffs, and this is particularly going to be a problem with your first clear and the first respawn. I've taken complete control of the enemy jungle against Amumu's that weren't prepared, if he doesn't take smite and an escape summoner I'd pretty much be all over his little crying ass.

If you're wrecking lanes with teleport ganks though then your weakness of not having Smite could definitely be negated. If you're getting results, no problem sticking with it. Some people on this board insisted Udyr with Ghost over Flash was the most noob thing you could do, but he was played at the highest level competitively like that and wrecked face.

If it works, it works. No point buying in to theorycraft, if it is a crappy noob technique you'll find out or else you'll never be playing at a level where it matters.

Nunu is probably the only good one who can live without Smite. Cho needs to get to Level 6 for that.

If you're doing Smiteless non-Nunu jungle against me, I will abuse you and your team.

Its usually a Warwick jungler that thinks they dont need smite. So I take smite myself take all of "my" buffs

Don't think you'd remember.

I don't think I even talked to you either. Just queued and you were on the opposing team.

If I was jungling against you and saw you had no Smite, you would get 0 buffs.
