Introduction

This guide is my custom approach on carrying games as Vi Jungle. It is unique, but I have played several hundred Vi ranked games at bronze/silver elo, which are the hardest games to carry as a jungler, and I have tweaked everything based on patches etc.

I often get mocked in-game for some of the unique strategies found in this guide, such as where to start, or the fact that I never once buy jungle items, not even machete.

Trust me if you can handle it, this guide will help you rush the perfect ganking item, and you will get it WAY sooner than anyone normally can. People don't realize how useless the jungle items are now, especially the 3209_32.png due to nerfs and stats per cost. My method puts all of your money toward more useful items, which normally high elo players would only build if extremely fed. My build puts you basically at one kill early on.. so if you are 0/0 you will have the money of a 1/0 jungler. It's all hard to explain, but if you follow the guide accurately you will see the early game damage.

I HAVE TESTED THIS STUFF OVER SEVERAL HUNDRED RANKED GAMES, AND THIS WAS THE METHOD THAT GOT ME FROM BRONZE V TO HIGH SILVER THE FASTEST!!!

Please don't rate this until you have tried it a few times and really adapted to it!

Summary

The secret strategy...
Start with LONGSWORD and 2 HEALTH POTS.

Get red and blue, and if you have enough hp clear the rest of the jungle.

Go back, get BOOTS and 1 or 2 HEALTH POTS.

Jungle / gank, get your BILGEWATER CUTLASS as fast as you can.

Your goal is to jungle/gank, and rush BLADE OF THE RUINED KING, and once you get it, you can just wreck people if you get it soon enough.

With BLADE OF THE RUINED KING You have your knock-up thing from your Q, your ult, and the slow, so you can catch and kill pretty much anyone quickly.

Get fed or get your team fed. This part is difficult to decide...just read your team when you gank. If they seem like...really unintelligent, or like they don't know what they are doing, or if they feed bad, just take the kill. If they seem good or at least decent, consider letting them have kills. I have gotten my adc and apc like 5 kills each early game, and they would just facecheck the enemy team 1v5...so it was all pointless. Teams like this you NEED to get fed and CARRY FROM THE JUNGLE.

My main strategy is to KEEP THE ENEMY DEAD ALL GAME. Once you get BLADE OF THE RUINED KING Just start wrecking people. If they overextend, kill them. If they kill your laner, follow up, kill them. If your guy goes B or gets a kill, help push the lane because you get bonus xp and gold. Some people don't like this, so just kind of stand there and soak up xp while they push, or like hit the minions, and let them last-hit them.

Continue onto items such as cleaver, maw, frozen mallet, randuins, merc treads or ninja tabi based on the enemy team, and who is fed/skilled.


EXTRA GOLD

IMPORTANT: When you hit level 8-ish if you have an exra 125 gold, grab a VISION WARD and ward DRAGON. Dragon is a major objective, and if you start solo'ing them at lvl 8, safely using a vision ward, you can get your team a TON of gold. It is even worth dying for if you can secure it and then die or w/e. You are getting your team more gold, plus KEEPING THE ENEMY TEAM FROM THAT GOLD. I cannot say this enough this is extremely important! At low to mid elo, people will just ignore dragon and not ward it at all! It is free gold for your team!
