Hi, I'm lvl 12 and I wanted to start playing junglers but I don't have any runes ( a friend told me to save until I can buy tier 3 runes)

How important ares runes/masteries to jungle? Can I do it even though I don't have all the mastery points? Can I do it without runes?

You shouldn't buy runes now.Listen to what your friend told you.Although there are three junglers, that I can think of, with who you can start jungling.
Warwick-He has some very nice sustain through his passive, so you won't get slaughtered by the jungle creeps.
Fiddlesticks-I've never really liked him, he's kinda slow but his Drain is an insane spell.
Nunu-He has something like a second Smite with his Consume,oh and it also heals you.
Well, thats all that i have to say.I hope it helped you.
There is going to be a jungle rework with Season 3, but I think you will still be ok with those three.

Thanks for the reply. I guess I'll try with Nunu first, since he's very cheap.

Cho'Gath and Malphite can also jungle pretty well without runes. I think Amumu can pull it off if he gets a decent leash. Might want to pick someone safer to start with though.

You'll probably want 12 defense for tank junglers, though some offense is nice if you're jungling someone like Lee Sin.

Get 9x Greater Seal of Armor when you hit level 20, it'll help a lot.

Everyone has given you good advice. Warwick and Nunu are your best bets for jungling pre-20. Although you will probably get alot of flack for it since most people pre lvl 25 dont jungle. So your top is going to go 1v2 alot. However don't let this dissuade you, once you start playing serious games at lvl 30 an experienced jungler is going to be received quite well on any team. Season 3 the jungle is going to get alot tougher, so get used to the mechanics and get your senses on good ganking opportunities before then.
Hey, if you liked any advice i gave, be sure to +rep me! Oh, and check out my Shaco and Maokail lorecraft in my Blog! I'm a starving artist in need of attention, so please feel free to read, respond, and critique me! Please? Anybody that leaves a comment (good or bad) will receive a +rep!

yes, he's right. go save for runes. buy runes before lots of champions.
btw, go try jungling vs AI. that's what i did when im starting to jungle. it is to be familiar with the system and not an embarrassment in case you die vs creeps. i remembered that my friend told me that jungle Shyvana is a beast. i tried it vs AI(without runes) and i failed miserably. lol

it may take alot of practice but jungling imo is very fun to play. once you mastered jungling, go for counter jungling. :D

No one else can see, the preservation of a martyr in me.

Go with one of the ones mentioned above, and no, runes are not NECESSARY but they are recommended for a reason.

Yes you are definitely fine without runes, but trust me once you have unlocked tier 3 runes, they help you out a ton! It really depends on what you get but usually always, they have a huge impact.

Runes are more of an early game type of thing, they do not provide massive impact late game, but they do in the early game.

Take for example if you have yourself some Attack Speed Quints. that extra 11% attack speed may not seem like a lot, but it's actually a great boost for you believe it or not. Same goes with flat armor seals, they provide you with 13 armor if you have 9 of those which is recommended.
These help you take reduced damage from the jungle camps, considering Season 3 Jungle are harder.

If this helped, Feel free to +Rep me
