Jungling Route

New Jungle Routes

With the NEW JUNGLE UPDATE! here's some tips for both RED OWL and BLUE RAM.

TEAM BLUE
When you play on blue side you will want to start Krugs finish him WITHOUT Smite move on to Brambleback when you're about to die Smite Brambleback he will restore HP after finishing Brambleback you will not quite have 350g you need so just kill the Small Raptors place down a ward to TP back to if you have the spell after recalling.

TEAM RED
Red side you will start with Gromp and finish him WITH Smite since Sentinal will not give HP it will be better for your survival after that move on to kill the Small Wolves get 350g place ward go to base and TP back if you have the spell.

Tips / Tricks

Tricks:

  • your Alpha Strike gives you invulnerability during it's duration
  • Alpha Strike can go over terrain and blockades
  • using Meditate while you're low can be use to heal or buy some times for your teammate

Tips:
  • Since with any build Master Yi is a high risk champion so it's good to take chances and if things go down hill you can just backdoor and split push y'know Yi stuff.
  • Choose wisely when to go in whether you want to clean up or force a teamfight if you do die make sure that it's worth it for your team as you will most likely your team's core damage groups.
