This guide is perfect for the ones who like to jungle fast and good with Gangplank.
For the mastery's I will go for the 20/0/10 path.
I choose for the amor penetration mastery and the damage on creeps damag. further in offencife I am taking the crit damage masteries. I also take the smite mastery for the cooldown on it and more gold when killing a creep with it. in the defence I am taking nothing. In the Utility i am taking the mana/health regeneration mastery and death time reduction, then i go for the experiance mastery and the creep buff time increase for longer jungling and easier.
For the runes I am taking the critical runes in red. full attack-speed seals and full attack-speed glyphs. In the Quintessence I will be taking 2 crit's and 1 movementspeed.
I choose for these runes so it will be easier for jungling, You will get more crits and more attackspeed so you will be getting sometimes very helpfull crit's with your Parrrley!.
I am going for the Smite and Flash. I am doing this becuz I will be needing a summoner spell wich can help me in all 3 phases (jungling- ,mid- and end-phase) and I am also going for the smite so I can start at the golem so I can use my Remove Scurvy without losing any unnecessary mana. and it will help you too if you choose to go for early dragon(this depends on your teammates willing to help you kill it).
You can also choose Ghost instead of Flash, You can also go for Ingite but I dont recommend this.
Why? because it will cause you to be a easy target if you dont have a escape Summoner Spell like Flash or Ghost.
I usually go for a cloth armor and 5x health potion. I do this so i dont get too much damage from the creeps in the jungle. When you first recall you should be around level 3-4. you will be having around 1000-1300 gold. You will buy your Ionan boots of lucidity for the cooldown reduction(you can also buy buy some health potions if ur jungle isnt going as planned (enemy jungler)). After that you'll be going for the first Vamperic scepter.
After you bought your vamperic scepter you must be around level 6-7. At this stage you will go farming for your first bloodthirster. When you got it you will go right off for some movementspeed and crit. You can do this by starting to get your Trinity Force. Right after it you will go for Infinity edge following by Phantom Dancer. and at last if ur game hasn't ended yet you will go for some survivebility, Banshees Veil(you can go for this item earlier if you have a tough time at surviving).
Creeping / Jungling
Here you have a map of what the best route is when jungling.
You will start at the golem (with first skill Parrrley!(ask team-mates to pull golem of make it easier for you to jungle)). then go to the Wolves. (When you reach level 2 you will choose Remove Scurvy). then you will go to the Wraths and followed by to the 2 golems.(When you reach level 3 skill Remove Scurvy again). Then go to Red Lizard. (when you level up upgrade your Parreley!). After this you can choose where you want to continue.
1 tip : If there is a enemy jungler try to get as much as possible to steal his jungle, but watch out for him.
And when you are jungling try to last hit everything with your Parrrley! so you will recieve more money from the creeps.
Pros / Cons
Pros : You can gank fast, around level 3-4.
You wont be having to Recall alot.
Cons : If there is a enemy jungler your leveling will be a bit slower.
if your team doesnt pull golem for you, you will be having a hard time jungling.
This is my Jungle guid for Gangplank or "Jungle"plank.
I hope this will make it a lot easier for you to jungle with Gangplank.
Have a nice time playing "Jungle"plank.
