Introduction

INTRODUCTION

Gangplank is one of my favorite champions to play. I'm always trying out new things that may seem crazy, but I have fun doing them. One day I decided to try out Gangplank jungle and it is now one of my favorite jungles. With this guide you can wreck anything that tries to board your ship!

I will update this guide as often as possible. Right now it is brief because I did it late at night xD.

Runes

RUNES

My runes (straight ad runes) are definitely not the best out there. Im too cheap to go that in depth to my personal rune pages. However, I will tell you the best runes for gangplank jungle.

Marks


mark of armor penetration

mark of armor penetration

I would suggest this mark in order to take down the jungle monsters easily. This also helps get some early champion kills. However, in the late game, they can deteriorate. If you find yourself in games that last awhile, I would suggest Mark of Attack Damage.

Seals




Greater Seal of Armor

I would suggest this seal in order to provide early game survivability. If you find yourself in games that last awhile, I would go with Greater Seal of Scaling Health. SPACE SPACE SPACE SPACE SPACE SPACE SPACE SPACE SPACE SPACE SPACE SPACE SPACE SPACE SPACE SPACE SPACE SPACE SPACE

Glyphs




Greater Glyph of Scaling Magic Resist

I would suggest this glyph in order to provide mid-late game survivability. Its great for ganking ap mid and ap top. Overall its a very good glyph and I would highly recommend it.SPACE SPACE SPACE SPACE SPACE SPACE SPACE SPACE SPACE SPACE SPACE SPACE SPACE SPACE

Quints




Greater Quintessence of Attack Damage

I would suggest this quintessence in order to provide a decent damage boost. Its great for ganking and for clearing jungle. Overall its a very good quint and I would say that it is a required quint.SPACE SPACE SPACE SPACE SPACE SPACE SPACE SPACE SPACE SPACE

MASTERIES

For these masteries, I won't go to much in depth. Its simply a basic ad jungle mastery page. You don't necessarily need everything in the defense tab, however it does help in the early game.

Abilities


ABILITIES

In this section I will go into depth on Gangplank's abilities, ability rotation, and special situations in which you should use certain abilities.

PARRLEY


With Parrrley you can apply on hit effects. This gives Gangplank a huge advantage when it comes to damage. It will also apply his passive, giving enemies a slight slow when you hit them. You will want to use this ability as much as possible and especially on killing blows. If you kill an enemy with this ability, it will give you some extra gold.

Jungle Route


DETAILS

  1. You are going to start with pink. You will need a leash for this step. Try to get someone else to take the first few hits, however this is not necessary.
  2. The next step is hitting purple. You will be able to solo this easily as long as you use a health potion and your W ability heal.
  3. Next, head over to blue and solo these guys. You should use a health potion and your W ability heal.
  4. After blue go to green and solo that. You can do this by casting smite and then slaying that beast. After this, you should either gank bot/mid lane or continue to step 5.
  5. After that you can go to yellow. Only do this if you have at least half health.
  6. After yellow you should definitely back and buy Ranger's Trailblazer. Then, go into whichever jungle order you want and start ganking.
