Really good guide! Does this one shot adcs? Because if it does nocturne ult will be pretty busted. Just swoop in and kill the adc. Who do you think can easily counter this build? I liked the guide though it was very precise and detailed. Keep up the good work!

Lethality builds can one-shot carries if you're ahead enough, but it's more reliable to think of it as a guaranteed kill on targets that don't have peel or are below 70-80% health. If you jump onto a carry in the middle of their team chances are they'll have enough peel to not die.

Lulu is a particularly annoying champion to play against, plus Ezreal and Ahri are both really hard to catch. I've also had some trouble with Xayah since she'll avoid your ult damage with her ult, and it usually buys her enough time for her teammates to help her.

Other than that lethality is pretty weak versus tanks, so if you only have 1 or 2 targets that are squishy enough to kill, you might have trouble making a big impact on the game.

Lemme know if you have any more questions and thanks for the support. :)

I'll have to revisit the matchups section soon, but ultimately I'm pretty limited on which matchups I can evaluate since I don't see some champions in my games. I play a decent amount of Shyvana but I rarely play against her.

As the Nocturne in that matchup, I'd mostly avoid her and just try to secure enough farm to hit 6 and start ganking lanes. I wouldn't pick a fight with her unless she's already damaged.

thanks, I thought I did it wrong upon following your guide. I was wrong in my game as Nocturne when I harass Shyvana and start counter jungling. I should go and gank laners. Thanks for follow up Psi

This is such a well done guide, I'm amazed! I recently started playing again after about a 2 year hiatus and am so surprised on how much has changed, but what hasn't changed is my desire to jungle with Nocturne! Can you recommend a good starting point or some helpful hints to ease my way back into jungling?
Again, fantastic guide!

Thanks for the kind words.

The practice tool was recently released on the beta client, so that would be a good place to start. You can find it under Play -> Training. Try out a few jungle routes with whatever your rune + mastery setup is going to be and get a feel for how your first clear will play out.

Also be sure to check out the Plants chapter of this guide. Plants are pretty new, so you should make sure you know what they look like and what they do.

There's no substitute for experience though, so you'll just have to get back into it and make some mistakes! :) Try and constantly evaluate what the best course of action is. If you're behind on XP and you have camps up, farm them. If you see overextended laners or easy dive opportunities, ward against counter ganks and capitalize. If you see the jungler somewhere on the map, gank a lane or invade his jungle to take his camps and get vision down. If you're strong, try and get a kill or two and take an objective like a tower or dragon afterwards.

That's all I can think of for quick advice. If you want more detail you'll just have to read the guide. XD

Shifted some items around and brought Duskblade of Draktharr and Maw of Malmortius back to the cheatsheet. Deleted Poacher's Dirk from Niche Items since I literally never build it.

Also updated some item descriptions and fixed a few errors in the guide. Enjoy. :)

I have a question about lethality. Does the lethality from multiple items stack? It says unique passive so I would think not, however I see many guides and pro players using them.

PsiGuard (913) | February 21, 2017 1:07pm
You can stick different items (like Edge of Night + Youmuu's Ghostblade), but you can't stack the same item and still get the lethality ( Edge of Night + Edge of Night).

Lethality and armor penetration are really strong when stacked so it's usually a good idea to get multiple (different) penetration items. :)

Just wanted to mention that on the jungle route section, on red start, there's a picture of the gromp where it says blue. Really enjoyed your guide, helped me a lot <3

I recommend Skirmisher's Sabre. You can start at either camp. If you have vision of where the enemy jungler is starting, you can start on the same side as them to prevent them from stealing your buff. If your opponent is a slower jungler like Warwick, you can also choose to start opposite to them and steal their other buff after you clear yours.
