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 build is something that I find personally works very well, and not only guarantees me great results every time, but also because it is a jungling build, which allows my teammates to gain solo experience while I at a bare minimum maintain the same level as double laners. The build is fairly straightforward.
Early game is the crucial jumpstart to this build, and if you fail here, you lag behind the rest of the game. First set up Jack in the boxes by golem buff, by placing 4-6 boxes in the bushes. Then, lure the golem into the bushes, and the jack in the boxes should take care of the rest. (Don't forget to use Smite to finish it off!) After golem and his goons are complete, you should be at level 2, ready to finish off the wolves just above (or below) you. Once completed, run over to lizard buff and grab a quick lizard to finish off your double buff combo. Now, if you've done this correctly, you should have 1 health potion to spare, and be able to gank either mid or the lane above (below) you, depending on how they're doing. Once you've grabbed a kill here, you should be at a solid level 3 nearing four, and by this time, have enough gold to pick up Madred's blood razors. This will make jungling a breeze, and it should now pose no problem at all, especially with lifesteal.
Mid game is when you really want to start getting those heavy ganks off and rushing Blood Razors as fast as possible. With blood razor, you'll be able to melt any opponents health, even if they are tanking, because your clone yields the same item effects that you do! If you finish off mid game right, you should be well on your way to five kills, and maybe a couple assists, and starting or finishing up Trinity force.
Now, usually my games don't even last to this point, because the other team has either surrendered or is being pushed back too far, but if you do get to this point, it's time to start stacking Bloodthirsters. One bloodthirster makes you deadly, and two make you unstoppable. As for the third one, it'll just make any 1v1 fight or 5v5 fight turn immediately into a victory for you. (Just make sure that any stunners or silencers have used them on your teammates first!)
I hope you enjoy my guide, leave comments and improvements for me!
One more thing, you may have noticed that I left the rune page out. That's because I feel this build does not even require runes to be deadly, so this build will work at any level summoner. If you have them handy, I suggest picking up the conventional crit and armor penetration runes we all love so much. Happy ganking!
