What is the goal of the jungler in LoL?

Help someone win their lane. Build tanky support.

The dota junglers aren't expected to gank until they get some items(at least not at low to mid tier games). The LoL jungler has to start helping out a lane as soon as he sees an opportunity. He helps pressure lanes and secure kills if he can. Helps to ward specific spots. Helps to cover lanes that are empty. Helps takes objectives like the dragon and baron.

1: Objectives (tower, dragon, buffs, baron)
2: Map control, and general awareness at low elos as laners tend to get tunnel vision
3: Getting laners ahead

in that order

The point of the jungler is to maximize XP/Gold gains for the whole team. Everyone but the support gets their own farm. First priority should be lane protection. Enemy is pushing too hard, the lane got outplayed, or a recall moment. Losing a turret/map control can be a huge problem early game. Second priority I'd say is securing objectives like buffs and dragons. Third I'd say would be ganks. If a lane is fairly even, a successful gank can tip the scales. Bot lane and mid ganks are extremely important. Mid can gank top or bot for you, help secure dragon, and bot can help secure dragon, not to mention the benefit of a more fed ADC.

I don't jungle though. Ever. Just my 2 cents from a laner's standpoint.

This topic made me think of a hilarious basic guide to LoL, here's a link if you want: http://www.solomid.net/guides.php?g=15698-pastoulio-generic-build-guide

Here's a part on jungling:

SO WHAT DO YOU DO AS A JUNGLER?

The short answer is: you do everything your teammates can't, don't, and won't. The long answer is to re-read that sentence until it sinks in.


Completely true, and the faster you understand this the better jungler you will be.

Depends on the team i have, if i play premade and i know that our mid will destroy them late game, i will focus on getting him fed and farmed, same with other lanes. If i am with randoms, i will farm jungle and hope that those noobs won't push and will actually help me when i gank(so many double kills wasted because adc is busy killing minions even when i ping good time before gank).

You basically roam the map, pop into lanes for a surprise visit, and catch some farm in the jungle along the way. You're going to want to ward the important stuff, because nobody else probably will. Hope you're good at getting people to work with you and each other, communication is very important
