Cant counterjungle very well unless you see him on the other side of the map without his buffs
6.2 buffed the **** out of Ice Blast so now the guide is revolved around this spell
: Ionian Boots of Lucidity give you 10% cool down reduction which will drastically improve your clear times and sustain in the jungle because you can Consume more jungle mobs.
: If Warmog's Armor and Frozen Heart had a baby here's what you would get. I like this item because it gives you quite a lot of armor, health and the active helps you stick to the enemy squishy's or peel for your own carries even harder!
: Spirit Visage is a must have on Nunu & Willump if the enemy team deals any amount of magic damage. The passive on this item is very useful for sustain in fights and the jungle because it increases your heal on Consume by 50 hp at max level. This may sound like a small bonus but with the 40% cdr on this build you will be able to Consume every 5.4 seconds.
: : Guardian Angel gives you a huge amount of magic resist and armor and it FRICKIN REVIVES YOU (at 30% maximum health as well which is loads with a tank build), WHY WOULDN'T YOU GET THIS!
: If you are getting Rod of Ages you have to start building early otherwise you will not get the maximum usage out of it's passive which provides you with extra mana, health and ability power. Nunu & Willump benefits from every stat this item gives which means it's very cost efficient.
: Liandry's Anguish is basically the AP equivalent of Black Cleaver except it offers no CDR. This is why I threw in a Frozen Heart to the AP build over the randuins to make up for the lost 20%.
: Frozen Heart is strong this particular build because it offers a huge amount of armor to make up for the rest of the build which provides no armor at all. This also gets Nunu & Willump up to 35% cdr which paired with blue buff still maxes cdr out. If you are giving your blue buff to your mid laner (which you probably should) and still want 5% more cdr you can take 9/0/21 masteries.
Orange = red side
Red = blue side (logical isn't it?)
As a jungler you should almost always start on the camp closest to your bottom lane (krugs for blue side and gromp for red side) because you will often get 2 people to leash you as apposed to one. Also to note, with new top lane meta of teleporting to lane after clearing a camp you might not even get a leash at all. Once you get into game, always smite camp number 1. Camp 1 gives you a beneficial buff which helps you out in the rest of the jungle but if you smite blue or red buff they will offer nothing except for health or mana.
You might be wondering "why is camp number 3 is over wolfs for both teams?" To put this simply, raptors are OP; they do so much damage! Wolfs are much easier on a first clear and then you have a lot more room for mistake on number 4.
After you do your first clear you have 3 good options:
1. To back and grab my Tracker's Knife or Stalker's Blade I generally don't do this because if you get a good leash you should still have plenty of health left.
2. To gank lanes to get an early advantage over the other team. This is very situational "tactic" because Nunu & Willump has bad early ganks and his whole playstyle revolves around getting your team ahead by objectives and denying the enemy jungler. If the enemy is playing a champion that can easily be played aggressively early then you might be able to set up a counter gank and that's about it.
EDIT: **** what i said above this is old **** NUNU HAS 40% SLOW AT RANK 1 THATS ****IN LEGIT AS ****
3. To keep on farming because I still have tons of health. This is the option that I usually choose to do because Nunu & Willump has little to no trouble soloing dragon at about level five so I will usually do my first back for items near 1500 gold to set up for dragon. Now I will have enough for Bami's Cinder and my Hunter's Machete upgrade.
The first clear is about all you need to know as you will be (hopefully) in the enemy jungle for the rest of the game.
