Good guide on jungle Nunu! I don't play it as much as you probably do, but when I do - I wouldm't build exactly like that..

First of all, your build is focused at getting a lot of AP early. You need gold, but how can you as a jungler get a lot of gold if you fail gank, gets counter jungled and falls behind because of some accident? Nunu is strong early, but there are champions, players and teams which are really good at playing against junglers like Nunu. Wouldn't it be better to build Gp10 items or just cheaper items. This build should work very well if you succeed and everything goes your way, but I'm just saying that it's not gonna be like that for ever.

As some1 else has mentioned too, your runes is not the most effective!

Anywayz, I wish you and your guide well


Why are you being a ****? If you feel to get a heart of gold / philosopher stone after cataclyst/rod of ages then do so! But this build is all fine and don't hate on it for no obvious reason at all!

What about changing void staff to Morellos tome? This would give alot more of Es and you would have a 15 second shorter ulti cd so you can ulti in every single teamfight.

Or would you need that extra penetration supermuch?

Anyways, trying this out thanks.

Why would you prioritize Consume over blood boil lategame? with its ratio you have enough ap it still helps killing creeps when blood boil is like a free phantom dancer for 2 people which can be devastating on your carry

You still have 9 T1 AP quints in there instead of 3 T3 AP quints. :p

ZealotRush (10) | February 25, 2012 5:26pm

Yeah you should. :p
It's now ArP marks (fix those, unless intentional) and AP quints at the top, but the runes section still has the old stuff of AP marks and AP quints.

Nice guide!


good catch dude, everything regarding runes should be fixed now :D

Nice guide. I haven't really tried it out yet, but I need to recommend something. You REALLY need to change AP marks, with Magic pen ones, and the Magic pen Quints, to AP quints. That is because :

1) On Mpen, marks give 8.5 Mpen in total, while Quints give only 5.67.
2) On AP, Quints are by far superior, giving 14.85 AP, while marks only give 5.31
So, totaling up, with that rune page, you loose 2.8 Mpen, and 9.6 AP.
Also, let's count IP costs AP and Mpen Marks, cost the same, so bad idea to take AP.
As for Quints, guess what...They cost the same too!!! So, you are loosing Mpen and AP on every game, without ANY reason.

I really hope you include this in your guide.

P.S. This might sound bad from my side, but could you include a thank-you, if you decide to change these parts? ^^

Edit:


I just noticed that others had noticed before me xD. I hadn't read the comment section due to the lack of time. But still, I'm not gonna delete this, for the numbers.

Haha well ill look into the potency/insight issue, because if what you say is true then my guide just got awesomer! On the note of magic res glyphs to be honest you really dont need in teamfight. If your up against alot of magic damage or cc just go murc treads and your good. An intetesting thing about nunu is his survivability from ap alone due to Consume. If this answer isnt satisfying i would be very glad to show you what i mean in game.

Also i would like to say if you do in fact disagree with my rune decisions then use my guide with your own runes, i try to make my guides flexible to bend to the playstyle of different types of players so alot of things are totally subject for change. If you do change something though, i would highly reccomend you keep what i refer to as the "core items" see items sections.

I have a minor complaint about your marks/quints. You recommend Greater Mark of Ability Power and Greater Quintessence of Magic Penetration for a total of 5.31 AP and 5.67 magic pen. If you instead used Greater Mark of Magic Penetration and Greater Quintessence of Ability Power you would end up with 14.85 AP and 8.55 magic pen, more in both cases!

As an honest follow up question, not a suggestion. Since that change would add 9.54 AP to the build and you could already jungle successfully, would it be better to drop the Greater Glyph of Ability Power (8.91 AP) and add Greater Glyph of Scaling Magic Resist for some magic resistance and better survivability in team fights?

Yes, I created an account just for this, lol >_> <_<

If not, i won't downvote but simply tell you what's wrong because this is at first glance a great guide. A little more explanation on jungle pathing and masteries might be cool.


Haha all i do is (win) jungle as well. and Nunu is really easy and fun to mess around with, but please dont tell me my guide is wrong because you didn't use your ultimate correctly. Not saying you will, just saying :p As for the masteris and pathing ill say this: Nunu is a jungle monster and if you start at blue you can do anything, as for masteries if you keep what i specified you can switch them around any way and he will still be a monster. I didn't specify because almost anything works.
