Runes

For jungling take armor marks
Take health seals because it's nice to have that health in the jungle
Magic resist glyphs are intended to be for that situation when you get counter-jungled or when you're ganking a lane with an AP based damage opponent
1 health and 2 armor quints are for the same reasons as the marks and the seals are.

Masteries

Take 0/20/10
You'll need a lot of defense in the jungle, which is sort of the point of those 20 points in defense
The utility part is there to increase jungle buff duration, add some extra mana and a tad of movement speed


Guide Top

Starting to jungle

Start stacking your E on the Blue buff at 1:20. After the 2 potions are used, go back and buy Ranger's Trailblazer for better clearing. If an opponent with no escape skills starts pushing their lane gank it.

Team Work

You start the teamfight so you activate your Righteous glory and W to the most squishy target, or the damage dealer.
If your team is grouped, use your Locket of the Iron Solari which should help since at level 18 it adds a respectable shield to your team.


Guide Top

Unique Skills

When ganking, use your W and then move a little bit behind the target and use your Q
Then, if the target is running away, throw your E in their way in order to slow them.
In teamfights you should isolate the enemy damage dealer and make them an easy target for your team.
Or if your ADC is getting focused use your W to the target that's focusing your ADC and then your Q, as if you were ganking.
