Is it worth it to just show up at a lane as jungler just to add some pressure?

Say there's little to no chance you can kill or even damage the enemy laner, but your own laner is at half of his health and struggling to even cs.

Do you show up to add some pressure?

Of course. However, if you can't even damage the enemy laner, are you really applying any pressure?

A successful gank is pretty much determined by whether or not you force the enemy to burn more resources (usually summoner spells, sometimes measured in potions) than your team, minus the time spent by you to visit the lane.

If the enemy laner is putting on heavy pressure to your laner, then simply showing up can be good enough to relieve some of that pressure so your teammate can get a level or two and get abilities they need to stabilize the lane.

If you push the lane and deal damage to the enemy turret then yes, you are applying pressure.

Just by keeping the enemy from getting gold is enough pressure, cause you are allowing ya laner to get free gold.

Applying damage to the enemy is just a bonus, but doing this somewhat constantly is a bad hing since you delay ya self (jungler) in getting gold, exp, and losing time for your build.
