Ivern JG S9

By Corvux
Introduction
Welcome to the jungle! I am Corvux from LAN and I have found Ivern a very interesting champion, do to his very atypical combination of support and jungle abilities. Is exellent invading and clearing the jungle in no time thanks to his pasive. Now let's make use of his full potential with this altruistic bruiser version that I have for you. Remember: if you want to survive in the jungle you have to adapt yourself.
NOTE: Ivern is a champion that requires a lot of precision and practice.
Pros Back to Top

Top 4 Ivern Pros:



PROS:

1. Excellent sustain.
2. Powerful support and CC abilities.
3. Have a lot of sustain.
4. Fast jungle clearing since early game.
5. Map adaptability and modifiers.
Summoner Spells Back to Top
Mandatory if you are the jungler. Smite have a lot of synergy with Ivern passive Friend of the Forest that place a grove around the monsters camps instead of kill them.
NOTE: As soon as the grove is placed, Smite the camp so you will not have to wait for it to charge and you will get everything. Perfect to steal camps in just 3 seconds!
This is the most useful spell. For better positioning in teamfights, good ganks by dodging something, for escaping and nice tricks.

> > > OK, let's start with the basics, the first 3 levels, we need Rootcaller to stun enemy champions on early ganks, move through the walls in the jungle when you root a monster, and some other good tricks. Then Triggerseed to shield your teammates in ganks, have some sustain and slow enemies when the shield bursts. And at last but not least Brushmaker to get a bonus range and extra dmg. And modify the map with brushes to make very good tricks with champions like Maokai, Teemo, Caitlyn and Nidalee for example.
Here we want we max out Rootcaller first to get a snowballing effect in ganks by doing a lot of damage wile you stun, help your teammates to approach fast and create a perfect combo with the Font of Life + Revitalize runes. A great combo that heal your teammates while they get a nice kill. beautiful!
Then we max Triggerseed to increase the shield power that Ivern will create, also this will increase the dmg that is made when it brusts and affect enemies mobility even more. And finally we max Brushmaker to get the passive full potential of this ability.
Of course, don't forget to raise Daisy! everytime you can! She will be very useful.
Don't mess with the power of nature when Ivern is close!
Jungle Path Back to Top
NOTE: Ivern is an agressive jungler that can steal camps in no time. take advantage of that!
1. Start with Rootcaller and go for the buff, red or blue, where the enemy jungler is not going go first. Help yousef by setting up a Warding Totem on the enemy jungle buff camp brush and hide fast. That way you can check for the one that the enemy jungler is going first.
Note: I recomend you to approach from behind by using the "Blast Cone fruit" or your Rootcaller.
2. place a grove around the buff with Friend of the Forest Ivern passive, use Smite immediately, this should take no more than 3 secons trust me, raise your Triggerseed ability and ran out laughing to your side of the jungle as fast as you can.
3. You have 2 choices here: 3.1 - place a grove on your buffo, rift scuttler and any other camp of your choice to farm very fast, then take your harvest. 3.2 - Look for potential gank before you place a grove on the other camps and do it. But if you do that just stun with Rootcaller and use your Triggerseed on your team liner. DO NOT APPROACH! You need health and mana to continue farming. If you fail the stun, same, continue farming with your "I don't care" attitude. Otherwise you will follow behind.
4. You shoud have lvl 3 at this moment, raise Brushmaker and head to the other side of you jungle, place grove and harvest as fast as you can.
Note: start always with the buffos, don't give the other jungler any chance to get any.
5. Now you should have around $1400 in your pocket and lvl 4. Look for a potential gank if you want and go back after that or go back immediately to buy your first back items! Boots of Speed, Blasting Wand and Sapphire Crystal or Ruby Crystal.
Note: Remember that you have the Future's Market rune.
Items Back to Top
When we talk about items I try to keep it simple, so I look for the most versatile items that have more synergy with this Ivern build, abilities and rune path that I create for him aswell, instead of give a lot of options that makes you crazy.

Note: It's very important for you to know that Ivern is a champion that requires a lot of precision and practice. And the way of playing it may vary a lot depending on the runes and items you set up for him.

Now, let's start with this!

- Why Faerie Charm instead of a healing item?

Ivern it's a mana dependant champion.

We need to keep his mana as full as we can, so we can make use of his passive Friend of the Forest full potential and farm fast. If a fight or gank is need it, we have our Triggerseed and combination of runes like Guardian and Second Wind + the Revitalize combo that will keep us safe.

- Why Rod of Ages it's our main item?

We need the Rod of Ages to create a balance bruise snowballing effect with Ivern, like a full AP bruiser. This way we will get the full potential of all Ivern abilities to help your teammates.

Thanks to the Rod of Ages passive "Eternity" effect, we will get a very balance sustain of mana and heal.

NOTE: With the Future's Market rune you should be able to buy it in no time. Trust me!

- About Shurelya's Reverie...

I love this item for 3 reasons:

1. Non-expensive item.
2. Well balance because increase Health, AP, movement speed, have mana sustain and reduce your CDR.
3. Grants you and nearby allies 40% bonus movement speed for 3 seconds. Perfect for iniciate or escape from a teamfight.
Runes Back to Top

RESOLVE

GUARDIAN: For 1.5 sec. If you or an ally receive damage both of you will receive a shield that increase with your AP and health which is perfect do to the fact that with this build we will increase our AP and health in no time + the Revitalize rune we have very strong shield combo with Ivern.
FONT OF LIFE: This rune is very good because have a lot of synergy with Ivern abilities like Rootcaller and Triggerseed. Also we will create a beautiful combo with the Revitalize rune to help our teammates get even more sustain during team fights and ganks.
SECOND WIND: This rune will provide Ivern with a lot of sustain when you receive damage. And plus the fact that we have the Revitalize rune combo you will have even more sustain.
REVITALIZE: This rune is the most important one because you get synergy combos with almost everything: Other runes like Guardian, Font of Life and Second Wind. And Ivern ability Triggerseed. This will increase the health regeneration and shields for you and every teammate. A perfect sustain combo!

INSPIRATION

FUTURE'S MARKET: The most important item for this Ivern build is the Rod of Ages because we want to create a snowballing effect with him as soon as possible and with the Future's Market we can buy it in no time.
COSMIC INSIGHT: This rune will help us a lot to use abilities like Triggerseed to protect our teammates and Rootcaller more often since the beginning. Also is perfect to have Smite in no time to clean camps very fast.
