Threats to Ivern with this build
|Zac||Pretty easy match-up. His clear is garbage and you can invadeas you please. His teamfight may be better but your shields are overpowered so just protect your carries and you will be fine.|
Hello my name is Arzis. I am a Platinum EU Jungler. I have been playing jungle for about a year now. My main champions are Rek'Sai and Lee Sin. In Season 7 I'm looking to be a Ivern one-trick unless he gets heavily nerfed. I made my first League of Legends account in NA in early 2014. My peak MMR was 1950 (Plat 2). In Season 7 my goal is Chalenger which is a long shot but only Rank 1 is the limit so I can do it if I really try. My secondary role is support.
So in the early game there are a couple of options for you to do. You can take enemy buff but you have to know where they're starting so what I do I ward the buff I think they will start at around 0:50. Then I use my passive on 2 camps on my side and I take Q at lvl 1 and I go to take the enemy buff. After taking the buff you are level 2 and everybody else in the game is still level 1 so you can actually do a level 2 gank fairly early. If you have no way to gank that early just go into a lane and auto-attack the enemy laner to create pressure but that exposes you to the enemy jungler and they may try to invade your jungle and take buffs so if you don't want to lose a buff on your side just fast clear your jungle and then look to gank. My first back is usually at around 1250 gold so that I can get Lucidity Boots and a Dark Seal. It's a pretty good start for Ivern if I can get that before 9 minutes.
Ganking as Ivern
Ivern has pretty good ganks with his bushes and his Q. I usually start off by placing a bush far behind the enemy and one bush close to the enemy in case they want to engage on my laner. I auto-attack the enemy first and use my Q afterwards as a gap closer because they can get away since Ivern doesn't have too much gank pressure so I think it's best to do some damage first and shield your ally if they're taking damage and if/when they start running to turret use your Q. If you miss it's still not bad since you created pressure but keep in mind that enemy jungler can counter it or can create pressure on bot lane or mid lane or they can invade your jungle so have vision around the map at all times.
Building Ivern (correct way)
Building Ivern is usually the same almost every game. It all depends on your early game. If you are ahead you can build some AP such as runic echoes and Rylai's Crystal Scepter. If you fall behind early you can still comeback. Just build your standard support items: Athene's Glory and Redemption, and then you can build zzRot's portal to create constant pressure on your sidelanes or you can build Locket of the Iron Solari if their team is ahead by more than 2.5k gold. Finish your build off with Cinderhulk or Runic Echoes it really depends what you want, tankiness or more shield power and damage.
Late game with Ivern
Late game with Ivern is pretty simple. Ult,shield,shield,shield...and so on. Ivern's late game is immense. Your shields cannot be matched since you have 45% CDR and your shields are on a 4 second cooldown. Protect your carries hard and yourself. Don't force shield your allies because then the enemy team can focus you and you can be in trouble if you don't shield yourself. Check bushes with your W to be safe and ward of course.
