How does Wu jungle work?

#1darkman95Posted 2/19/2014 11:15:10 AM
Everybody and their mother is going Wu jungle, but I'm kind of confused about how to pull it off. I know Wu is a beast in teamfights, but wouldn't a jungle Wu be behind in gold unless he gets kills in ganks? And that seems difficult to do since he has no CC until 6. So should I just farm jungle until 6 and then gank? And should I build him more offensively or defensively (Golem or Lizard etc...)?

His lvl 3 ganks are rather strong. W into lane, E to the target, get the red buff slow, bonk him with Q, and proceed to wail on him. Having red buff usually gives you all the cc you need early on.

Max E first. He has great clear speeds with it.

Approach camp > AA > Q > E> W > Autos

it's that gank power is determined on three things

1: Ease of ganking (stealth, gapclosers, massive ms boost, etc)
2: CC
3: Burst

Wu doesn't have decent CC until 6, but he can get by on 1+3 until then. You don't even need the kill, EAAQ can win an otherwise even lane by itself.

Or make your dumbass laner think he has a lead so he yolos into a creep wave or tower and dies, one of the two :3

You rely on the red buff for the slow during pre 6 ganks, but other than that he has stealth and a gap closer, so how does he not make a good jungler?

Wu jungle got popularized (more than before at least) because it was used in the LCS. As far as I know.

The mismatch here, compared to solo queue, is that the LCS laners don't degenerate into infantile ragers the moment they fall behind in lane in levels 1-3.

And Wu isn't the greatest pre-6 ganker.

If it works for you and you win games or like playing with him, then that's great and good for you, but there's probably quite a few easier or safer junglers.

it works because before lv6 he still crazy strong damage, like others said.

w>e >q = 100 to 30-20% for non tanky champs.

Another worthless post from happyscrub


Wait, scratch that.


Not totally worthless. It has some worth in the fact that everyone can get a good laugh from it.
