Introduction

Hi my name on League of Legends is RennieTheCreator and i prefer playing top lane but i am more experienced in the jungle. This is my first ever guide for mobafire and hope you like it.

Jungle Udyr is a brilliant jungler and in my opinion one of the best junglers because of his ability to easily snowball with his high damage output and crowd control. Also if the game doesn't quite go to plan and you cant snowball it is also extremely easy to farm in the jungle with him since he has one of the quickest clear times of all the junglers.

Remember this is a quide that may not be suited for your play style and it may take practice to reach a stage where you become good with this build

Runes

Here are the Runes i use with Udyr


Runes

Greater Mark of Attack Damage
9

Greater Seal of Armor
9

Greater Glyph of Cooldown Reduction
9

Greater Quintessence of Attack Damage
3
SPACE
SPACE
Marks 9 x
SPACE
Attack damage is needed to increase the damage of the bonus you get from tiger stance's first strike after activating and it will help you to destroy your opponents health bar. This will also help you earlier on in the jungle when you don't have much sustain and damage.
SPACE
SPACE
Seals 9 x
SPACE
This extra armor will be needed to stop him taking more damage in the jungle early on and it will also help when it come to ganking cause you will be able to pull of more tower dives creating more opportunities to for you to gank. It will also add to your sustain later on in the game and help in team fights.
SPACE
SPACE
Glyphs 9 x
SPACE
You can go with magic resist glyphs if you want but i prefer to go with the extra cd on Udyr because it means his tiger stance will be of cooldown earlier so you can get more burst damage of with his first strike bonus which allows you to take down an opponent much quicker and doesn't give them chance to run. It also allows you to gain more shields from your turtle stance which will help you stay alive in team fights and allow you to tower dive more freely.
SPACE
SPACE
Quintessences 3 x
SPACE
With tiger stance Udyr it allows you to get more damage done in a less amount of time and attack damage quintessences is really the icing on the cake here and really allows you to maximize the damage output of Udyr tiger stance.

Items

Starting Items
You start boots with this build because you already have enough damage to clear the jungle without a machete so these will give you more utility


First Back
If ganks are going well


If ganks aren't going quite so well

The homeguard bonus will allow you to get out of base quickly and back to farming as soon as possible

Mid Game


The blade of the ruined king will let you stick to people trying to escape with its active ability and also give you alot of sustain. Muramana will give you alot of mana so you can spam your abilities and it gives you tonnes of damage when its active. The spirit of the ancient golem make you tankier and give you that extra tenacity ro escape from crowd control.

Core


Sunfire Cape allows you to split push alot easier with Udyr so it helps alot if you team is far behind in gold and the spirit visage gives you alot of magic resist and gives alot of cooldown reduction, all you need to finish of your item build.

Skill Sequence

Here is the order that you level up your abilities

Ability Sequence
1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18

You max tiger first because that will be your main damage dealer and then you max turtle second so you get a bigger shield to dive more and can instantly heal from the turtle stance passive. You max bear last because it isn't as important as turtle and only gives you a improved speed boost when activated so its best to just keep it level 1 and make use of its passive stun. You finally put the last 3 points you have into your phoenix skill which can be used to farm quicker late game because of its aoe damage.

Spells

Main Summoner Spells



These are two must have summoner spells when playing jungle Udyr. Smite is needed to take objective on the map like blue buff, red buff, dragon and baron and can be used to steal these objectives from opponents effectively. Ghost is needed on Udyr because it is alot better than flash when used with Udyr since the speed boost lasts longer than a flash and can allow you to constantly apply your red buff slow onto an enemy champ when ganking making it hard for them to get away. Trust me its alot better than taking flash, just try not to get caught out by their team.

Creeping / Jungling


You always want to start blue when going Udyr jungler so get your teammates to cover your red and pull your blue and your going to want to get it smiteless since you started with boots and 4 pots for that extra move speed. When clearing camps you are going to need to activate your tiger stance before your at the camp so when you get there all you abilities are of cd. You then hit them with your first strike bonus from tiger then go into turtle for the shield before they even get to hit you. Then just keep switching between tiger and turtle stance until the camp is clear and that is the most effective way to clear camps with Udyr. Have fun :)

Team Work

For Udyr team play if someone is having trouble in a lane then you can try and babysit their lane and zone them out abit allowing your teammate to gather up some creeps freely while the enemy has backed off. If there is one lane that is extremely fed then you may need to organise a 3 man gank or even a 4 man gank, asking your mid laner to come and assist you with the gank while you stun them long enough with bear stance someone will be able to pick up the shut down kill.

Pros / Cons

Pros

- Is very effective at farming
- Can tower dive with ease at quite early levels
- Really tanky
- Can be built to cause ALOT of damage


Cons

- Has no gap closing abilities
- Can be hard to gank a passive laner without cc from teammate
- Can only use 3 abilities to their maximum potential


Guide Top

Ranked Play

In ranked you are going to want to ward the enemy team blue buff and try and steal it everytime allowing you to give your blue buff to the mid laner while still having your own since Udyr is blue buff dependant. Also putting wards at the enemy team camps will allow you to catch them off guard and you will be able to go in and get a free kill with help from the laners. Also make sure to ward your own buffs because you don't want them getting stolen without a fight.

Summary

Overall i have to say Udyr is one of my favourite champions to play in the jungle and is fairly easy to learn and has so much potential when you do know how to play him. I recommend Udyr as a starting jungler for anyone who is new to the game and needs to learn the ropes of the jungle.

I hope you have enjoyed this guide and it has helped you out and if you have any questions or comments feel free to ask.
