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 is my first guide. Just wanted to share it. Hopefully you will have just as much fun as I do. This guide is for experienced Junglers. You will need to know:
Timers on buffs and monsters.
Positions and where you should be.
Zoning, and being able to get rid of the enemy flash.
Knowledge of other junglers paths and predicting where they will be.
Ok here we go.
***IMPORTANT***Do not lvl any skill untill you know the other team will not counter jungle at lvl 1. If they do - add your E and fight, or get the **** out of the jungle. Bad early game taric = NOT FUN.*** Anyways...
Start boots 3 hpot. This will give you around 400movespeed at lvl 1. Level your W. Dmg wolves and leash blue, after this level your Q(keep healing whenever it is off cooldown as you progress through the jungle). As you are killing wraiths you should be hitting Q and W inbetween auto-attacks to maximize gold/per minute income (This seperates the men from the boys in league). After wraiths, move straight to golems and continue this technique.Then move and grab red buff. At this time you will be lvl 3 and are going to have a choice...Gank or not to gank? Anyone over extended?. If you are: level your E, if not, level your W and continue farming the jungle.
After some pretty fast ganks you should have enough money to buy Pstone/ HoG (Need the money. Mid game you will not be able to farm as fast as lee sin/shyv/udyr). You should also buy Boots of mobility. Giving you 478 movespeed!
Rush Aegis, and Shurelyas, as you will be running into lanes EXTREMELY fast - popping shurels/flash stun, or whatever it is you have to do. Running in at 550movespeed and a flash is pretty hard to escape. Plus giving you and your teamates arua buffs/heals. This makes amazing tower dives aswell.
Just remember. DO NOT stop moving. Take advantage of that movespeed."Half health...I think I should B"... NO. Heal yourself up and ****ing gank. You are so ****ing fast. If the enemy team is at the tower, go and heal a teammate. Could save a life.
These runes are simple.
Tanky/Speed Jungler runes. This build is built around SPEED, and FAST ganks. Nothing more to talk about.
Masteries are also very simple.
Build Tank so that when you run into a lane at 550movespeed, you wont be focused down and raped. Also this is great for that late game tank/cc taric.
The reason why I chose this build, is, well...**** it.
Why have 1 support when you could have 2? Running all of these support items+CC On a good team with damage. Things will be pretty scary for the enemy team.
Rushing these items gives you those fast ganks, followed by a reliable stun. Timed correctly, this can be a gamechanger.(Dont forget to give your "carries" the kill)
Nothing is worse than having a 20/0/1 Jungle Taric that blames the team afterwards for being bad.
Fairly simple as to how these are set up.
W- Aoe. Gives you armor. Boom, explode it and it does damage.
Q- You can now survive in the jungle longer, definitely get this at lvl 2.
E- Time to gank. Usually get this at lvl 3.
OR W again if you want to farm
The rest after 4 is your standard max W Q E in that order, and getting your R every 6th, 11th, and 16th lvl.
