ALL POSSIBLE OPTIONS FOR NUNU JG [ 14.4 ] [CHALLANGER] [800K PTS]

By Zasrana Hyenaa
HYBRID NUNU - A TIER SEASON 14
Currently the - BEST Nunu & Willump OPTION FOR SEASON 14 SO FAR!

Difficulty - Easy

When Hybrid? - Every time in season 14.. Its the best build rn since the AP and others are still kinda poop.

Early Game - With hybrid Nunu & Willump you cant lose tempo in the start you cant stop moving.. My game plan is to level 3 always gank some lane after that try to take as many camps as possible (Focus on killing Rift scuttler for better ganks) But Nunu & Willump early is the best if you use it to make many great ganks early even if you gotta sacrifice a bit of farm but you should get level 6 around same time as enemy jungle anyway. You can also take any objective on level 4 solo but I recommend if you want to go solo objective then have at least level 5- Focus on trading either Voidgrub or Drake depending on enemy or if you just go around voidgrub while going for gank then give him Consume + Smite and few AA take one and go gank.. This will make enemy get max 5 stacks if you wont get any other and nunu is absolutly perfect to do this.. I do this all the time.

Mid Game - Mid game is good for Nunu & Willump and you can still catch and gank a lot of times but here you will have more time to farm but you cant lose your tempo and you want to focus on tracking enemy jungler so you can know when you can start objectives which should be one of your main goals. So if you see enemy jg is killing your top and you are around bot then you either gank bot if its possible and then go drake or you will go drake solo if botlane is pushed to enemy or if you know you cant take it becouse mid or someone would kill you then you wanna just try to steal enemy jg or reset. Dont forget if you already have liandry you are turbo strong with your ultimate vs anyone who is not tank.. you dont have to let every kill take some for yourself too but still let your team take the most.

Late Game - You are still good.. You can surprise catch, you can fight. You will be actually really usefull in fights. So peel your carry catch champs and you have your Consume + Smite to steal important objectives like Baron Nashor or Elder Drake . You should be the leader in the late game and create openings and situations for your team

Conclusion - He is not in the meta in season 14 and everything is stronger but this build is rn the best and if you are good enough you will make it.

(If you know how to play tank Nunu & Willump then its the same but you have more demage)
AP NUNU - B TIER
Currently the - 2ND BEST Nunu & Willump OPTION AFTER HYBRID!

Difficulty - Medium

When AP? - For me NEVER. Since in my opinion hybrid is in everything 10X stronger and better and AP Nunu & Willump is just gamble. But still if you want to play it then ap nunu is best into targets that are more squishy then tanky and to champs that cant dodge your ganks.

Early Game - With AP Nunu & Willump you cant lose tempo in the start you cant stop moving.. My game plan is to level 3 always gank some lane after that try to take as many camps as possible (Focus on killing Rift scuttler for better ganks) But Nunu & Willump early is the best if you use it to make many great ganks early even if you gotta sacrifice a bit of farm but you should get level 6 around same time as enemy jungle anyway. You can also take any objective on level 4 solo but I recommend if you want to go solo objective then have at least level 5- Focus on trading either Voidgrub or Drake depending on enemy or if you just go around voidgrub while going for gank then give him Consume + Smite and few AA take one and go gank.. This will make enemy get max 5 stacks if you wont get any other and nunu is absolutly perfect to do this.. I do this all the time. (EARLY IS SAME LIKE HYBRID YOU JUST HAVE A BIT MORE DMG)

Mid Game - Mid game is strange for AP Nunu & Willump and you can still catch and gank a lot of times but you should focus on ganking champs that you can oneshot. Here you will have more time to farm(AP Nunu & Willump farm very fast) but you cant lose your tempo and you want to focus on tracking enemy jungler so you can know when you can start objectives which should be one of your main goals. So if you see enemy jg is killing your top and you are around bot then you either gank bot if its possible and then go drake or you will go drake solo if botlane is pushed to enemy or if you know you cant take it becouse mid or someone would kill you then you wanna just try to steal enemy jg or reset or try to catch enemy midlaner or botlaner solo if they are squishy and kill them. Focus on killing anyone you see and try to take all the kills. Your main focus should be to play around some squishy laner with easy access to gank and farm dark seal and kills on them.

Late Game - You should be monstrum with your demage.. You can surprise catch, you can fight. You should use the surprise demage with Biggest Snowball Ever! or sneaky Absolute Zero in bush. Catch champs and you have your Consume + Smite to steal important objectives like Baron Nashor or Elder Drake . You should be the leader in the late game and create openings and situations for your team but also you should play around your team. Now its confusing you can either start situation like if you Biggest Snowball Ever! into some laner and fast run away so your teammates can engage or you can wait until your team starts teamfight and then you Biggest Snowball Ever! there and nuke everyone.

Conclusion - Ap nunu is really poop rn imo and is only valid vs squishy champs and champs you can gank easily.. I think the best option is just to go hybrid.
TANK NUNU - C TIER
Currently the - 3RD BEST Nunu & Willump OPTION FOR SEASON 14 SO FAR!

Difficulty - Easy

When TANK? - Every time you see full ap or full ad team (If there is only on ap or ad dmg you can go full tank nunu too and it will be still pretty good but you have to play it well) If you play TANK Nunu & Willump its the worser version of hybrid but its good only if you play into the full AD or AP matchups which happens really rarely so it depends and in this scenario its playable and not really that bad otherwise full tank is horrible..

Early Game - With tank Nunu & Willump you cant lose tempo in the start you cant stop moving.. My game plan is to level 3 always gank some lane after that try to take as many camps as possible (Focus on killing Rift scuttler for better ganks) But Nunu & Willump early is the best if you use it to make many great ganks early even if you gotta sacrifice a bit of farm but you should get level 6 around same time as enemy jungle anyway. You can also take any objective on level 4 solo but I recommend if you want to go solo objective then have at least level 5- Focus on trading either Voidgrub or Drake depending on enemy or if you just go around voidgrub while going for gank then give him Consume + Smite and few AA take one and go gank.. This will make enemy get max 5 stacks if you wont get any other and nunu is absolutly perfect to do this.. I do this all the time.
(yep its the same like hybrid nunu)

Mid Game - Mid game is good for Nunu & Willump and you can still catch and gank a lot of times but here you will have more time to farm but you cant lose your tempo and you want to focus on tracking enemy jungler so you can know when you can start objectives which should be one of your main goals. So if you see enemy jg is killing your top and you are around bot then you either gank bot if its possible and then go drake or you will go drake solo if botlane is pushed to enemy or if you know you cant take it becouse mid or someone would kill you then you wanna just try to steal enemy jg or reset. You are tank so you want to provide your team good engage and if you have Trailblazer its even better. Dont forget to peel your squishy laners and carry. And becouse you are tank stealing objectives is super easy out of all build cuz you have the most time untill they kill you so use it!

Late Game - You are still good.. You can surprise catch, you can fight. So your main role is to peel your carry, catch champs and you have your Consume + Smite to steal important objectives like Baron Nashor or Elder Drake . You should be the leader in the late game and create openings and situations for your team. Your engages should be absolutly core for your team and dont be scared to flank with Biggest Snowball Ever! in some main carry.

Conclusion - Its really bad to play full tank nunu unless enemy are full ad or ap which there is really low chance to happen so almost always prefer hybrid with liandry but in this scenario its playable and not bad otherwise its horrible..
SUPPORT JG NUNU - COMING SOON
Coming soon
(Info why I still didnt add any Supporting jungle build - Im really trying to find any other build you could use for Nunu and support jungler is one of them but I dont really see anything even worth putting here becouse it would be just rundown build. Maybe If u give me some time Ill make some Supp build but it will be max C tier between these builds.. (Jackal here on mobafire have some strange hybrid build that I didnt even try out yet so when I try it out depending if I like it I might add it here too with some of my changes etc. (With shoutout to jackal ofc))
PROS/CONS

Q + SMITE = Steal
Early ganking
Multiple options - tank,ap..
Great engage

Cons

Team dependable

Huge macro needed
MY GO TO BUILD - SEASON 14 HYBRID
1ST. BUY - Gustwalker Hatchling + Health Potion(Optional)
2ND. BUY - Boots + Dark Seal
3RD. BUY + FIRST ITEM - Prefer buying Blasting Wand in Liandry's Torment and then finish it

BOOTS - After finishing first item buy either Plated Steelcaps if they have a lot of AD or build Mercury's Treads if they have a lot of AP

4TH. BUY ITEM OPTIONS - If they have a lot of AD with and dont have or many critical strike or if they have a lot of attack speed then buy Frozen Heart
- If they have a lot of AD using critical strike like yasuo, xayah etc.. then buy Randuin's Omen
- If they have a lot of AP and AD at the same time then I always build Jak'Sho, The Protean
- If they have a lot of AP and almost zero AD then the only viable option is Hollow Radiance imo

ANTIHEAL - Now if you need anti heal just build Bramble Vest and continue (you will finish it as your last item later)

5TH. BUY ITEM OPTION - If they have at least 2 AP relevant champions then build Kaenic Rookern since its broken item rn..
- If they have only 1 AP/AD relevant champion then buy Anathema's Chains and use it on them.
- If they are full AD continue building Sunfire Aegis or Jak'Sho, The Protean
- If you are really ahead and enemy is have only 1 relevant AP then build Zhonya's Hourglass for AP and ARMOR

6TH. BUY ITEM OPTION - Build Jak'Sho, The Protean if you still didnt buy it.
- If they are full AP build either Force of Nature if you want to be more tanky and you are even or behind or Abyssal Mask if you have a lot of ap in your team or you want to deal more demage
- If they are full AD finish Thornmail if you need antiheal or if you already built Bramble Vest before or buy Sunfire Aegis if you want more demage.. + If you are really ahead and carry with demage you can buy Zhonya's Hourglass

7TH. BUY MEJAIS - Finish your Dark Seal and build Mejai's Soulstealer
WHERE TO START? (MACRO)

I love to start on red most of the time.. why? You can path anywhere


(Blue side)
Red buff Crimson Raptor Gromp → TOP/MID
Red buff Ancient krug Crimson Raptor → MID/BOT
Red buff Crimson Raptor Ancient krug → BOT

(Red side)
Red buff Crimson Raptor Gromp → BOT/MID
Red buff Ancient krug Crimson Raptor → MID/TOP
Red buff Crimson Raptor Ancient krug → TOP

Early you have to choose who do you want to give lvl 3 gank and path for it (also think where from which camps you want to go so your whole clear wont get ruined) After lvl 3 gank always go back buy items and run for your camps or you can just take Rift Scuttler and then run home

You can also start from blue (but I almost never do that)


(Blue side)
Blue buff Gromp Greater murk wolf Crimson Raptor → MID/BOT/RED
Blue buff Greater murk wolf Gromp → TOP/MID
Blue buff Greater murk wolf Red Buff → BOT/MID

(Red side)
Blue buff Gromp Greater murk wolf Crimson Raptor → MID/TOP/RED
Blue buff Greater murk wolf Gromp → BOT/MID
Blue buff Greater murk wolf Red Buff → TOP/MID
LVL 3 GANK (MACRO)
You want to always lvl 3 gank - if its bot you can even gank from lane if you tell your bot to not push becouse if you gank from lane 99% you can kill somebody or waste 2 Flash... If u gank from parts of the lane you can kill somebody or waste at least 1 Flash so its on you depending on the situations. If you are not ganking bot then just gank mid/top ALWAYS PING IT you need to act with your team like its bunch of kids and take them by hand so they can carry you later becouse it would be shame if they wouldnt follow cuz they didnt see.
GANK (MACRO)
Gank as mutch as possible. If your team is winning but your ganks are not or they are absolutly useless then go from active to reactive. Ganking is kinda easier for nunu in season 14 you just gotta figure out the paths how to gank depending on the situation but its really easy just use the first thing you see as best..
OBJECTIVES (MACRO)
Dont worry you can miss some but only if you make something on the map worth for it.
On low elo and even on high elo from lvl 5 you dont need to be scared to sneaky take drake but you need at least Oracle Lens.. or Control Ward If ur team is not totally poop they will make pressure.

Voidgrub are really good imo.. Even if you just go by and dont want to risk to kill them or if you just dont have time to do so then go use your Snowball Barrage + Consume + Smite and you should oneshot one grub! Then you can either come later to take at least one more or both.. Or just give it to enemy jungler and on next spawn do the same thing so they cant spawn the Voidmite ! But ofc if you can take all 6 do that! It will be really usefull later in the game.

You need to track enemy jungler to see his position and trade his jg / take drake / Voidgrub / Rift Herald or gank. You can steal everything if you have enough information but never ping your team to go steal with you (only if you want some movementspeed spell or something) Becouse if you steal its 90% times suicide mission for drake . Always calculate your Smite x Consume. Just dont forget your main kit is insanely good early ganks and taking objectives...
PUSH LANES (MACRO)
If you win gank or see enemy Recall from lane then you want to help and push the lane along with the laner asap so the next waves gets crushed under tower and your laner will have time to comeback to lane before enemy laner come back to push the wave. And this thing means a lot for your laner even if he dont know it himself and try not to steal much minions just make him last hit you can take 2minions most of the times before he get mad.

!!! Dont push waves when it makes your wave later freeze under enemy turret becouse it might mess up your laners lane and he will get really mad

(if your laner recalled before or died then freeze/reset the wave for him)
ENEMY JUNGLER TRACKING (MACRO)
When you are playing league as a jungler you want to look at the map always like on a chessboard (With nunu this is even more important).. And one of the few things you need to constantly check is the INFO about enemy jungler and constantly track him.

So how do you do that exactly? Is actually pretty simple. When the game starts you can already predict a bit where he might start depending on his champ but the main info will be watching enemy laners go to lane.. If we see enemy botlane already farming but toplaner just came to his lane then it means he helped leashing enemy jungler. And it goes the same way for botlane..

Now if enemy team either fakes or dont leash at all you just gotta predict him. When you see him you gotta start tracking him becouse you will see his buff cds which will tell you where he started..

Everytime you lose sight of him try to get more info on him like checking his jungle if there are camps or when you see him ganking top or something it means he cleared the jungle side just right now and he will path to the other side if on that side there is not any objective he would like to take.

! Since this is just mobafire guide and I dont want this to be long I wrote only basics but you should really learn how to track enemy jungle and watch some more video guides about tracking enemy jungler its important if you want to be good!
TRICKS (Important to learn or keep in mind while being OTP or huge main)
One of my most favourite thing is to Biggest Snowball Ever! and after that insta press Flash.. It makes you insta cast
Biggest Snowball Ever! and cc enemy who you Flash and they wont have time to Flash away (you can Flash in
Biggest Snowball Ever! casting time) If you Flash first there will be like 0,5sec for them to Flash away otherwise.

With Nunu & Willump Biggest Snowball Ever! you can go around any object with enough practice (you gotta be on exact place to roll the ball around the object you want.. Its harded to explain this one so If you want to learn this then just go and watch somu Nunu & Willump otps or play with your self becouse with enough experience it should be okay to learn by time without any guide

Oracle Lens is important asf if you are planning to sneaky Absolute Zero enemy team or you will start Absolute Zero and they will poke the living out of you bcs they had vision honestly just buy it every game unless your team is super bad with vision and your Control Ward is not enough(On low elo normal ward is more important cuz enemy wont see you ganking even with vision most of the times and you will be more depending on your own skill while stealing drake with normal ward you have)

I buy Control Ward only when I go for objective I know they will contest or when there is a lot roaming champs otherwise its waste of gold for Nunu & Willump becouse he is dependable on being ahead and if ur behind you will lose(ofc in higher elos master+ it might change and you will really need Control Ward every reset but dont forget you are not playing esport game)

Ganking from lane is one of most underrated nunu path while ganking.. Look and imagine the situation if ur ganking thru river and they Flash you will be around same position as your laner and start hunting him BUT if you go thru lane they have to Flash to right or left side not to you and not to enemy tower.. That means if they Flash you will just roll for half second more and now ur already sendwiching enemy player so you cant just Snowball Barrage start Absolute Zero and they have no chance of escaping

This one is the trick I use really often (imagine situation where you have full Smite and Consume so 2400 Smite ofc it can be used on any other lvl and smite just calculate it) If you fight vs some champs with insane demage but low hp like
Kha'Zix you can start ulting 3000hp objective in pit and when its fully charged just Consume Smite the objective and if ur team is helping you and ur like in half of R then just stop and Consume Smite if the objective already dropped around 2500hp.. It makes enemy jg not want to jump in cuz now their chance of stealing it rapidly dropped and they will die for 99% if they jump.

If you have blue Gustwalker Hatchling smite and Phase Rush runes I showed you then on full stacks smite you can get the insane movement speed by going in bush, stepping on dead Rift scuttler and insta Biggest Snowball Ever! so you get insane movement speed and huge gank potential even diving.

If you kill enemy toplaner with your toplaner while ganking and enemy have Teleport they will most likely use it and you can just go to river wait for him and gank again right after (you will waste some time) and with that enemy top lost more waves, Teleport and he is tilted as hell now which is insanely good for your toplaner (For you it means you dont have to give a fk about top anymore so you can have more time later for the wasted time waiting for enemy Teleport ofc in that waiting time you can get some camp)
SEASON 14
SEASON 14 - Nunu & Willump is kinda poop but if you are good enough you should be able to climb and its still fun to play.
