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.
Now, This is where ALOT of junglers mess up, and it impacts there own game by such a critical amount it's almost impossible to get back on track.
Your own Blue Buff Start.
The most common start for Volibear, If you are in solo queue, Smite blue. If you are getting a leash from a friend, get it smiteless.
In the case that you are solo, Go Blue > Wolves > Red > Golems > Wraiths. From here it's up to you. You could either gank mid or back. ALWAYS look for places to gank, that's were you'll get a load of exp and gold from.
When you come back, continue farming your jungle, moving towards whatever lane needs help. At around 7:00-7:10 the opposing junglers starting buff will respawn. If you want to **** them up, AND get a huge advantage. give say, Blue buff to your Mid. or Red Buff to your top or adc. IF ITS CONVENIENT. Don't put your team in a position that they will get killed. If your voli, you'll get out of there. unfortuantly, your mid or adc will most likely not be running movement speed runes and ghost.
And about 8:10ish there other buff will spawn, You have the option to counter this aswell. but keep in mind, there jungler will most likely be around this area. Or even worse, in your jungle. Always ask every lane to place just one ward down at entrances in your jungle. 75 gold for a ward, or a buff and 150-200 gold stolen. tell me what you thinks better?
But however, This may not always be possible. If you die, you will fall behind, if a lane is being pushed, about to be dived, YOU NEED TO BE THERE. If your half way through doing wraiths, **** them off, go and help your lane. That's the point of you being the jungler.
Counter Jungling is always a difficult task early game for voli, So you need to try and have other lanes creating more presence and pressure on the other side of the map, predicting there junglers movements can not only destroy them, it causes alot of stress on the entire team. So, If It's Renekton Vs. Teemo Top and Teemo is on your team. Ask Teemo to apply alot of pressure right before there blue spawns. Say there jungler is Hecarim, Diana, Sejauni or Elise. just to name a few. who is reliant on blue buff. you take that away from them. There screwed, They won't be able to jungle aswell, They'll be demotivated, and if it really messed with them, Check your chat. There will probably be some complaining ***** calling you a ****.
I wouldn't ever counter jungle as Volibear in solo queue.
Buttttt, Seeing as this is a guide.
Invade on the enemys opposite starting buff. (Nunu starts blue, so invade red.)
Have ALL 5 people come, take red. take Wraiths. then your wolves. then blue. then gank.
From this, You can follow the route I gave before.
Invading on Blue? Take Blue, Take Wolves, Your Golems, Your Red. Then Gank. A level 3-4 gank early game with double buff. is almost always a kill. aslong as your smart about it.
