Foxes in the Jungle! (Ahri Jungle Guide for Normals)(S11)

By AST Raposo
Introduction Back to Top
1 - Introduction

Hello, I am ''Raposo Chan''from (BR) server.
I Always played on midlane and always loved play as Ahri.I Love everything Ahri related.

2018 i started play as jungler and became a main Jungler but Ahri was still in my heart (and still are) so i thought.....Why not to play As Ahri jungle? So I started to try make it possible.

Below is my recent match history(Updated on february,2nd).

You can also see by yourself throughout This Link
2 - Are you trolling with this build?

No. If you ever try to do your best,never is trolling. This offmeta pick is still viable to have fun,and nobody can report you if you are really playing to win.
Pros and cons Back to Top


Extremely good for put pressure when ahead
Even better for pickoffs mid/late game
Fun to play with?
Good for stealing Dragon and Baron
Easy kill in ganks if your team has gank setup


Be Invaded almost everytime
When is too much behind,hardly will back to the game
Cannot kill the drake by herself
Hardly will gank if laners doesn't have a good setup
Cannot 1v1 most of the junglers
Runes Explanation Back to Top

  • This is the most useful rune you can choose.Ahri is a strong assassin that needs to burst her targets. Dark Harvest together Horizon focus creates insane damage.

  • Every time,you hit your charm,you will gain extra damage.

  • To deny enemy vision and set yours.Remember you will use Lens instead of yellow trinket,so this rune will help your team a lot.

  • You will need this rune because without your ultimate,you are vulnerable. Its very important you play agressive while your ultimate is up.


  • The new transcendence is in a good spot for Ahri,it gives haste level 5 and 8 and reduce her skills everytime she kills someone.

  • for me,is the best option for sorcery tree. Everytime you use the smite on a champion,you will gain move speed and it is very useful if you are ganking champions that can outplay you like Darius or maybe Irelia.
Optional Runes Back to Top

  • I personally don't like this rune,but it can be useful if you think you can 1v1 the enemy jungler to contest the scuttler.

  • Can be very useful in longer games.


  • Its a good choice if you think you won't be so active early. It's 300 extra gold anyway. If you can be active,you can use Perfect timing instead.

  • you may not notice at the beggining, but it helps a lot the cleaning reducing smite and skills cooldown.
Item Situations Back to Top
  • This item is good for everything,but specially for teamfight.If enemy team isn't full of Tank/bruisers,this will be the best mythic option.

  • Very useful for pickoffs and for jungle clear but not so good for teamfight.The item gives 20 magic pen when you are full build,so its very important the enemy has at least 4 squishy champions.

  • This item gives you magic pen in percentage and 15% extra true damage in combat. Rush this item only if you are against tanky compositions.

  • Good to play against Bruiser/assassin fighter in general,the item combs well with demonic embrace and void staff.

  • This is the most even option. You can use this item to engage with your ult or wait enemy engage and stop him. The mythic passive gives you AP,so its a good option to build rabaddon early when winning.

  • If the game is too much easy,snowball them with tons of AP. If you/your team is behind,don't buy it,because The item is very expensive.

  • Buy this as fourth or fifth item if enemy team has built magic resistance.

  • This item is very important to amplify your burst damage against squishy champions. It's actually the core item to complement Ludens and Night harvest damage.

  • Combs very well with Riftmaker or Liandry,you always will rush it against bruisers/tanks.

  • If there is an (AD)carry very fed like Zed/Kha'zix and maybe Talon.It's also important to buy it early if you are against an ad assassin that can outplay you easily (Rengar,Khazix,Zed)
Early game behavior Back to Top

Starting Red Buff, Ward the bush showed in the image above, back to base and buy Oracle Lens

It will prevent you to be invaded without have any reaction.

Basicly, Early game you have to avoid most of junglers tracking because of Ahri's Weakness as a jungler

Try to Always counter jungling. This is best way to get advantage as Ahri.

If your jungle camps are being invaded,try to respond with a gank or try to kill him if possible. Do not try to also invade him back. Ahri doesn't clean the jungle camps fast in the beginning, so you will get more behind than you already are.

If the Enemy laner has no escape,consider gank him as soon as possible.
Mid game behavior Back to Top
Always have 2 pink wards in your inventory After the 15 minutes , Look for pickoffs to grant objectives for your team. Ahead is a Example of where you can do it.

The enemy won't have vision of you behind that wall. So you can beat him down with no problem.
Possible Pathing Back to Top
Actually,Ahri has few good possibilities early.

1 - If you are Blue side and your bot lane has gank setup

Red buff > Golem(Smite) > Gank bot

2 - If you are Blue side and your mid/top have gank setup

Red buff > Blue buff > Gromp > Gank mid or top

3 - If you are red side and your top have gank setup

Blue buff > Gromp > Red buff(Smite) > gank top

4 - If you are red side and your bot lane have gank setup

Red buff > Blue buff > Gromp(smite) > gank bot
When should i gank? Back to Top
First of all,you have to ask 4 things to yourself before take any decision

1 - My laner has setup for me?
2 - The enemy has any escape skills? (including flash)
3 - The enemy can make a 1v2 this moment?
4 - The enemy jungler can respond my gank?

The best sequence surely would be (yes,no,no,no), so in this case,you can force the gank.

If the answer is (yes,yes,no,no) or is still good for you,you can kill the enemy or force him to flash.

If the answer is (no,no,no,no) is still ''gankable''

With ''gankable'' i mean you should analyze one more thing before take the decision to go. Even the enemy has no flash,and no escape skills,if your laner doesn't have a setup, you have to ask yourself a Fifth question. '' do the enemy laner have enough life to hold our damage?''

This question is 100% of times for the enemy toplaner since most of them,buy resistance or HP very early,so i recomend gank top only before their level 6 (not your level 6,when you get 6,they are getting 8).

If the answer is another,don't gank.

Ability order and reasoning Back to Top
1 / 4 / 5 / 7 / 9

  • Orb Of deception is the best damage skill Ahri has and will be the first you have to optimize,because it allow you clean the jungle camps easily and have more damage to deal to the enemies

3 / 8 / 10 / 12 / 13

  • Although Foxfire doesn't give you too much extra damage as orb of deception does,its cooldown decrease every point what makes it worth update before charm.

6 / 11 / 16
  • Spirit Rush always that is possible. The skill itself combs very well with Ahri Kit and The cooldown decrease drastically every point.

2 / 14 / 15 / 17 / 18

  • optimize Charm won't decrease its cooldown and only gives you a little of extra damage and 0.15 sec extra duration.Since the extra damage and CC won't help to clean the jungle and neither help you for ganks,its not worth.
