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 a Udyr jungeling guide. In this guide im gonna include:Items, Runes, Routes, ganking, counterjungeling, and so on. If i do forget anything, i would apreciate you to tell me in the comments and i'll get back to you as fast as possible. Enjoy
I use the Armor pen reds, for bieng able to clear the jungle at high speed early on + it helps you gank at lvl 4, which you should aim for as udyr. The armor seals, are pretty standard for jungelers, for bieng able to survive in the jungle at earlie levels, and it obviously helps suviving aswell. When it comes to Glyphs, i like to use just plane magic resist, since it's very.. very! helpfull when ganking at level 4. Some if not most people like to use magic resist per level, since they want it stack up into late game, so it builds your survival, but since i like to focus on getting a gank at level 4, i prefer the plane ones, but this really is preference, so if you feel you do better with the per level onee.. use those (; For quints i defenatly prefer attackspeed, because it helps you ALOT early game, and a tiger stance udyr, is very good with attackspeed.
I like the masteries i showed you, because it helps me be offensive early game, and the reduced cooldown on flash etc is very usefull. But in the end, the masteries are up to your prefence of course.
The build i show is a pretty good standard build in my opinion, giving you alot of survival and still more then enough damege to be able to kill people, since you stay alive alot longer. But udyr is a very affective reactionary champ, so of course the build changes against certain champs.
The skill sequence i showed it based on getting your dmg up quickly, but some people like to get more ranks of turtle stance earlier which is very understandable, since it gives you alot of survival. again, up to personal preference. Some poeple also like to get 3 ranks of bear and 5 in phoenix, this works well for killing minions waves quick, but in my opinion, it's not needed.. id rather have 5 bear, for the extra movement speed, when you acktually want that important stun on a guy.
I use Smite ( of course ) and flash. Some peeps like to use ghost, and it is very effective, but i prefer flash to escape ganks, when or if i get caught out of position in the jungle or in team fights.
The route is pretty standard, start at blue, get a guy to pull for you, and use smite earlie, so it starts recharging. Then go kill wolfs, bieng mostly in turtel stance with a health pot going, so you can regain your health. Then wraith's, golem and red buff. At this time i look for a gank, and if it's possible go kill people ;P of not, then go back and see if you can set a gank up, or keep farming. But ganking is very important, and it should be possible to set it up if you have a couple of teammates working with you.
What is udyr's job in team fights?, well.. with this build your gonna be very tanky, so i usually, go in as initiator, or with our initiator, to see if i can get a carry in a stun and blow him up with tiger, with the help of the team. After that, it's pretty basic, kill the easiest targets first, and udyr is very good at chasing people running from fights, so if you see a guy running away, chase him.. but don't get too greedy, ive seen alot of greedy udyr's end up getting killed.
that concludes my build / guide on udyr, if im missing anything, then please tell me in the comments, and i will add it, or if i did something wrong in your opinion, tell me and i'll take it up to considoration. Thank you and good night.
