I want to mention that this its my first build and i still play Nunu jungle by this build.Please comment and say your impression about it.Please excuse my grammatical mistakes because English its not my first language.Hope you will like it and use it :)
I like to play Nunu because its so versatile and can be played as tank, as AP carry like in this build, or like support.Nunu its a great jungle because Consume and Blood Boil make him to finish jungle faster than other junglers and that means more ganks.

OK lets get started :)

Summoner Spell

Summoner Spells

Flash: // This is great to enter and escape from ganks and its a good combo with your Absolute Zero or with your Ice Blast
Smite: // This is a great spell for junglers.
Ghost: // This is a good replacement for Flash if you don't have enough level to use it.I strongly recommend Flash.

Abyssal Mask

  • : // We take this item to be able to counter the silences and spells that can interrupt your ultimate and prevent you from casting.
  • : // We take these boots to be able to move faster and have a low cooldown on Ice Blast and Blood Boil so we can permanently slow enemies and buff our teammates.
  • : // I choose this item on Nunu for the huge AP that its gives.We are a AP carry so we need huge AP to do a lots of damage.
  • : // Rod of aegis its good on Nunu because its gives health and mana to be tanky and spam your abilities more but its gives you Ability Power and AP/HP/MP per minute.
  • : // At late game we try to take as much supportive items as possible because our spells don't do enough damage to carry the enemy team, so we need to help our teammates.If your team got more AD champions than AP you can exchange this with zeke's herald.
  • : // This item its great lategame.It gives you the extra AP to carry the other team, extra MR to resist in ganks and the MR of the other team its also decreased so you and your team make extra damage to them.

Jungeling Route

This is my jungeling route.I suggest to make 2 or 3 times wolves and ghosts to be sure u can make red.

This route its effective because we need to be sure we can make red on our own.Don't forget to ward the entries in your jungle at blue and at red if the enemy team got jungler.

Counter-jungleling Route

The art of Counter-jungeling

If you are sure your enemy jungler will start with blue u can go and Consume their big ghost because the ghost got 400 HP and your Consume damage its 400 you will instant kill him.Then you are going to the 2 small golems and use your Consume + Smite combo to kill him, then if your top can come camp the other jungler in the bush next to the red buff.

When the red goes low use your Flash+ Smite or Flash+ Consume and steal the red then work with your top to kill the other jungler.I don't guarantee that you will kill him but you will slow his jungeling rate.

Tips and Tricks

Tips and tricks in teamfights

  • Don't enter and popup your ultimate.Wait a bit so the enemy team use their silences and other spells that can move you like Tristana's Buster Shot or like Xin Zhao's Three Talon Strike because they can interrupt you.

  • When you wanna Ice Blast somebody try to target and AD Carry because Ice Blast its slowing attack speed too.This will low his damage output.

  • You can Blood Boil one teammate and you will get the buff too, so try to Blood Boil one AD carry and watch how his killing the enemy team.
