Not Updated For Current Season
The masteries shown here are not yet updated for the current season, the guide author needs to set up the new masteries. As such, they will be different than the masteries you see in-game.
Hey guys this is Animitrix from NA server making my first guide on any website... I chose mobafire because this is where I looked for help when I was new in the game and I wish to help other players like they helped me, so without further or due lets begin.
Notice how the items lack of AP, your abilities are not meant do deal huge amount of damage this is a balance on Magic/AD/Trued/tankiness. So use your abilities to cc their carries or save yours. However you will still be able to 1v1 most of the enemy champions if played correctly.
Pros / Cons
Biggest meat sack
Has the ability to hide in bushes smaller than his toe
Slow at full stacks
High cool downs
Skills are easy to dodge
When you do a successful gank take creeps from the lane you just ganked so you don't fall behind.
-But how do I know if I'm behind? If you started at blue next time it respawns take a look at your level.
Level 4 - Stay in the jungle and farm till you catch up.
Level 5 - You are just right keep it up.
Level 6 - You are probably the strongest in the game keep the pressure up help the team achieve your greatness.
or you could just simply look the your adc's level you both should have the same level if you are both doing ok.
Each item and why.
-Spirit of the Elder Lizard : This item helps you jungle faster , gives a good amount of ad, regen and TRUE damage. The best part it applies on your Vorpal Spikes.
-Boots : They are a must have on any champion.
-Warmog's Armor : Probably the best tank item at the momment, just imagine a Cho with full stacks and a warmog's.
-Iceborn Gauntlet : Nice amount of armor, Ap, CDR, Mana , and the sheen proc. Plus some aoe cc.
-Wit's end : Why? because it is probably your main damage dealer, this allows you to proc the true damage faster on everyhit also dealing magic damage.
-Runic Bulwark : Best...item...ever! Gives really good stats not just for you but also your team.
Stats at the end of the build SHould be : (Without baron buff)
Magic resist- around 160
Few tips in the jungle
. Look at the damage on your smite or feast and the health of your creeps so the enemy doesn't steal them.
.Always kill the golems.
.You can use smite around 4 times before the buffs respawn.(40 free gold is a nice addition with the masteries).
.Keep the timer so you know when you can use smite in a 30 min game smite can give you 300 gold just from the mastery point.
How long does it take for the buffs to respawn?
Blue/Red buff- 5mins
.Try to save your Q for when the enemy flashes, if you have redbuff try to right click them first, If you are at least 90% sure that you will be successful you may initiate a gank with your Q or just do it to burn the flash(wich in season 3 has 300sec cd) keep that in mind.
