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.
Diana is mainly in the jungle, she is a unique jungler because she is an Ability Power jungler. After you get your Catalyst the Protector your ganks will become a painful spot for the enemy. She is a lot of fun playing in the jungle, I get a lot of health on her to make up on the lack of armor and magic resist that she will get with this build. After Diana gets most of her build going she can not only deal a large amount of damage but she can also take a large amount of damage. Diana can get a lot of kills easily at the late game, so when you do not get as many kills as you would expect at the start of the game, do not worry you will get a good amount of kills later into the game. Playing as Diana is a bit difficult because of her Q (Crescent Strike) has a curve in it that goes out to the right. I start with my W (Pale Cascade) instead of my Q (Crescent Strike) because after the person leashing your Blue Buff moves away you cannot tank that much damage after that. Getting W (Pale Cascade) at level 1 will give you a shield for a short time and will help you get Blue Buff easily. After you get your Blue Buff you will be level 2 (unless the leasher stays next to you and takes some of the XP) go down to wolves and use your W (Pale Cascade) then your Q (Crescent Strike) to deal a good amount of damage to the wolves without letting you take too much damage. Remember to get ahead in gold use your smite on everything that you can, each time you use your smite you gain 10 extra gold for using it.
Anyway guys this is my build guide to how to build AP Jungler Diana, and how to jungle without taking too much damage. Check back later for any more guides that I will be posting in the future.
Where to go Guide
This map points out the where to go locations for jungling Diana. If your team mates need help in a lane, go help them in the lane then go back and continue where you left off.
An unyielding avatar of the moon's power, Diana wages a dark crusade against the sun-worshiping Solari. Though she once sought the acceptance of her people, years of futile struggle shaped her into a bitter, resentful warrior. She now presents her foes with a terrible ultimatum: revere the moon's light, or die by her crescent blade.
Though she was born to the Solari, Diana's inquisitive nature set her apart from her brethren. She had always found solace and guidance in the night sky, and questioned the dominance of the sun in her society. The Solari elders responded to her challenges with only derision and punishment. Diana remained convinced, however, that if she could find evidence of the moon's power, the elders would listen to reason. For years, she studied Solari archives in solitude until she discovered an encoded message hidden in an old tome. This clue led her to a secluded valley on Mount Targon where she unearthed the hidden entrance to an ancient, sealed temple. Inside, among aging relics and faded murals, she found an ornate suit of armor and a beautiful crescent blade, both inscribed with sigils of the moon. Diana donned the armaments and returned to the Solari elders that night. She declared that the artifacts proved others had once worshiped the moon as she did. Her discovery of evidence challenging Solari dominion shocked the elders. To Diana's horror, they pronounced her a heretic and condemned her to death. As the elders prepared her for execution, Diana's anger and sorrow overwhelmed her desire for acceptance. She lifted her gaze to the sky, calling upon the moon for strength. Lunar power surged within her and she shattered her bindings. Raising her relic blade, she turned and slaughtered the elders. With the temple in ruins behind her, Diana resolved to destroy all those who would deny the power of the moon.
