This is the revolutionary guide to Poppy. Poppy does not farm well as you know and this is why i first decided to jungle with her. she is an amazing ganker in beginning game. Be sure to get a couple of kills and assist or you will be behind the whole entire game. I personally love playing her jungle I have been doing amazing every game i played with her since i started rooming around the jungle. btw english is not my primary language so i might have some mistake in my grammar. please don't hate.

So the item might have to be checked cause i actually never got enough money to finish this build but i think this is what is best. Also notice that the attack dmg is greatly increased then what the build shows because of Atma's Impaler. If u actually get this build completely done call me up and tell me how much dmg your combo does cause just when i get to the impaler I drop bombs in the 1000's.

Skill Sequence

I personally think this is the best way to go. You do not need heroic charge first nor second because you are jungling. You might also notice that i get my ult leveled at the end. This is because u do not need one extra second on your ult. What you need is extra dmg. I also want to point out for not poppy players that yes you do have to max out q really fast because that all that poppy depends on.

Pros / Cons


    poppy can charge to gank stunning sometime ennemies
    poppy does a **** load a dmg on her combo so an enemy with 1/4 hp will die
    amazing at fights in jungle
    runs really fast
    can catch up to enemies with w
    with this build poppy can stay in team fights for a long time spamming q
    she is also blue
    poppy is a horrible farmer
    poppy can not jungle without blue and potions
    when jungling you do not get as much experience

Creeping / Jungling

you will need to start at blue then you will move on to wolf after that you will be going to ghost, then red. the next step is entirely your choice. you are now lvl 3, getting double gollems will not get you to lvl 4. so you have the choice of either going to gank or get gollems then go back and buy. If you are lucky you might have enough hp to do both but this is entirely your decision. At this point in the game i normally get a couple of ganks in there. The beautiful thing about poppy is that if someone flash away and you activated your charge it will charge and bring the person back most of the time. After 2 or 3 ganks you will noticed that you are lower lvl then everyone. No panic just go lane top or go hardcore jungle.

Team Work

poppy is a master key in team fights. Poppy can initiate teamfights but he is not always the best for it. be sure to use your ult early so you are healthy threw out the fight. what u want to do in the team fights is smash people in the wall(if possible) and spam your q. In team fights before you get your frozen mallet try to just run in and out of there so you dont die to quick. Poppy is amazing to pick up kills so dont worry about jacking kills. that what bomb droppers are suppose to do.

Unique Skills

q= most important ability greatly boosted by sheen.
w= really important for catching up and getting your defense up.
e= you need did to gank
r= i want to elaborate on this a little your ult is amazing in team fights so you don't loose health to quick. in a team fight you have 2 choice either tag a hero who doesn't do dmg and kill other people then him or tag hero you want to kill and **** him up.

Ranked Play

if you want to play poppy in rank this is a great build for it. i played him ounce and it started really good, but ended really bad. ;)

well to sum it up poppy is a beast. he just **** on people. i know this isn't the best build but i kind of like staying in the middle of team fights longer and just **** on people face while i'm there. i just actually finish a game and laning for about 2 or 3 minion wave around lvl 10 makes you catch up to everyone if your behind. just post on forum if you think this build is amazing and what you think should be done to it. thank you have fun and good luck.
