Introduction

JewcupLee here to present my first guide! Nocturne is my go-to for jungling at the moment because of the superior ganks and the speed of clearing the jungle as well.

Pros and Cons


Fast Jungler
Safe Jungler
EXTREMELY good ganks
Easy to Farm
Good in teamfights
Spell Shield





Vulnerable to CC after spell shield
Mana Hungry Early Game
Fear Leash can be easily broken

Summoner Spells

Flash: A get of out jail free card. Why Not?
Smite: Increases Jungling Speed and efficiency and allows Baron/Dragon Control.

Ghost: It is a nice substitute for flash and allows better chasing.
Cleanse: Has Potential. I haven't tried it though, but go ahead!
Ignite: Optional. Not Recommended though :(

Runes

I chose:
Armor Pen Glyphs/Marks: Well, your AD so...
Armor Seals: Gives you a healthy boost to armor and helps jungling
Magic Resist: Also gives nice early game MR

Masteries

For some reason, I'm really like 9/12/9
9 in the Offense Tree gives you some Damage and Armor Pen.
12 in the Defense Tree gives you Health and Defense in the jungle.
9 in the Utility Tree gives you Movement Speed and increased buff duration.

Jungling Route


1. Start at Blue. Leash is necessary!
2. Finish wolves
(On the way to wraiths, you can use your to move faster
3. Finish Wraiths
4. Finish Double Golems. DO NOT SMITE!
5. Finish Red. Gank or go back and repeat :P

Pre-6 ganks are heavily reliant on you hitting your onto the opponent. So CC or Slow is nice on a gank partner!

Cloth Armor/5 Pots vs Vampiric Scepter

I personally like Cloth/5 Pots set up because it allows with a safer jungle.

But if you like to start with Vampiric Scepter its a good start as well.

Items

Building ATMOGS is nice because mid game is where you should be "Covering" lanes most and getting a lot of minion kills. Also, jungling and small camps such as wolves and wraiths boots up your Warmog's Armor. This will make you quite tanky and able to initiate with your ultimate.

Initiating with your Ultimate

Initiating with your ultimate is possible with this build and you wont melt in half a second either! Target the squishiest champion on the other team and go in! Hopefully your team will follow you!

DARKNESSSSSS

Summary

Nocturne is a versatile jungler who has good jungling speed and ganks. With this build, you should have a tanky, initiating monster under your mouse who can destroy teams. I highly recommend Nocturne for beginner junglers!
