Rape'Zix Jungle Guide
Usual Damage Build (in buy order)
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.
This guide is how I build and how I personally think Kha'Zix should be built when jungling. Many people think that Kha'Zix is a "terrible jungler" and they underestimate his jungling abilities. I personally have changed many peoples views on Kha'Zix's jungling power. This guide also includes 2 different builds, one for pure damage output and the other for if you're wanting to be able to survive longer in teamfights (because after you use this guide you'll start getting focused in fights). I didn't include a tank build becasue I personally don't think Kha'Zix is a good tank AT ALL.
I choose these runes because I like the early game damage that the quints and marks give me while at the same time, the glyphs and seals help me tremendously in early game ganks. I wouldn't recommend changing your runes if you're building bruiser.
I like these masteries because they help tremendously with my damage output while at the same time, are usefull for a jungler. These do not need to be changed with different builds.
Damage Build: Please for the sake of your team make sure your top laner is building tanky before you use the damage build, otherwise, use the bruiser build. I chose these items because they provide MASSIVE damage output while also not making you the easiest target in teamfights (as long as your team is doing a good job in the fight).
Bruiser Build: I HIGHLY recommend using the damage build if your top laner is building tanky and/or is a tank. I like the items on this build because they provide decent damage output while also making you difficult to kill not only in teamfights. I also tried to put a good amount of MR and armor along with the additional health so that you can use this build against any team (unless they're ALL scaling the same).
I like to max out my Q first for damage however I like to evolve my E ability first for fantastic ganks, I then procede to evolve my Q 2nd and my R last. I don't evolve my W anymore due to the update that nerfed Kha'Zix's W to make it do less damage and make it's passive not work as well. Also due to that update I like to max out that ability last.
Reason for smite: You're jungling... dugh.
Reason for flash: It allows me to flash away/over a wall so that I can either get away from a gank or be super greedy and flash for a kill. ;)
If you're really looking to win then I suggest you feed your lanes when ganking (give your team the kills). When doing this you can get your team as a whole fed not JUST you and after giving them the kill(s) don't feel bad, you got gold and XP for the assist AND you can always just tax a few minions. However, if you're solo queuing or something and you're just playing for fun or something you can just gank for kills and tax anyways, don't worry about last hitting the enemies because with this build you'll be doing so much damage NOBODY can KS you!
Creeping / Jungling
Normal Jungle Game: With Kha'Zix I like to start off with a nice blue buff leash. If you know that the enemy jungler is starting blue also, go across river and steal their red after your leash! However, if they're starting red, I recommend you go straight to your red after your leash so that nobody can steal it. After that, you should be level 3 and 1 or 2 levels higher than everyone so go gank a lane, mid or top is what I usually do but if bot needs help, go gank bot. After your blue leash you won't need blue again so every other time it comes up give it to your mid laner or your ADC.
In Case of Enemy Invade: If the opposing team has invaded your blue, stole it, and made you super behind, DON'T PANIK OR QUIT. That will just make it worse. Stay cool and collective. Go to your red buff, ask some teammates if they'll help you with red real quick, then proceed to farming jungle minions while waiting for your blue to come back up. After you get blue, go hold a lane for the XP and tax or just farm jungle minions. It'll be okay. ;)
