[S10] Anivia Jungle (Adventures With A Bronze)

By xxseraphinaaxx
Introduction
Hi, it's Sera again, your friendly neighbourhood Anivia one trick. After making 2 guides on Moba, I can proudly say now that I've gotten better at coding and whatever else concerned me before. Oh yeah, almost forgot to mention - I am not a high ranker whatsoever. In fact, I'm in Bronze. Don't expect much from me at all if you're a higher elo than me. Jungle is one of my worst roles, along with adc.

This guide is also going to be more like me recounting my games of Anivia Jungle, rather than actually being a guide. Of course, there will be some guide aspects, it's just not the main focus. As such, I'll keep updating with every Anivia Jungle game I play. This guide is purely so that I can learn jungle with the rest of y'all so don't flame me and feel free to leave a comment under this guide with any questions, comments or concerns of yours.
Rebirth of Anivia Jungle Back to Top
I feel like I should explain what even led me to doing Anivia Jungle and why I think it can actually be both a fun pick. Obviously if you plan on actually doing well, you should use an actual jungler and not a mage like me. However, if you want a challenge or something fun and different, this is for you.

So one day I was just looking at my league stats from previous season 8 and 9. The ripe years I was just starting out playing league.

I looked at the jungle section for season 8 and well, my eyes might as well have popped loose from their sockets and rolled across the floor. I saw that the only champions that I ever played jungle back then were Anivia and, wait for it, Janna. Yeah I wanted to scream. I also vaguely remember doing Janna jungle, not knowing it was a troll pick. I looked closely at Anivia Jungle though. I've played Anivia every single role this season except for jungle. So I decided to make it happen.

With that, I recorded literally every struggle I went through in hopes that people out there who want to try this won't screw up AS badly as I did.
Common Problems Back to Top
When trying something like this, you're bound to have problems, of which I learned the hard way, but you don't need to. Running into problems was especially true for me since I really only ever tried playing jungle very few times sporadically with Evelynn and the aforementioned Anivia and Janna for whatever reason back in the previous seasons.

1. Start blue and never red
It seems obvious to anyone higher than iron but I was just worried I would execute so I took health over mana. Bad choice, to put it simply. You need mana to put out your spells constantly and when you run out, you can't clear camps anyway, making you more useless than if you just executed.

This point also holds more true to me since I didn't even know the difference between red and blue back then. I clearly remember always mistaking the wolves pit for blue buff's spawn area. If you asked me then, I wouldn't have been able to give a basic explanation of jungle and I probably would have scratched at my head while looking at you confused.

2. Only gank when there is a good opportunity close by; focus objectives and farming pre 6
If you play Anivia Jungle, be aware of the fact that you're not going to be able to gank nearly as well as your opponent jungler. You're going to make up for that by claiming as many objectives as possible and farming to always stay ahead of the opponent jungler.

Whenever I play jungle, my mind is just overflowing with things I need to keep track of and opportunities to spot. I have serious respect for any jungler that's above bronze because jungling is HARD. I have to keep tabs on the dragon pit, the opponent jungler, rift herald, lane dynamics, camp respawns, scuttle and so much more. Not to mention I just run everywhere in a blind panic and waste time by doing so. Jungle is stressful - full stop. There is no arguing with me.

3. Don't forget scuttles exist
This is obvious, but when you're running low on mana and health while jungling, it's a good idea to get scuttle to regain some back so you can continue without needing to back early. I forgot this quite a bit while playing jungle and backed when I could have gotten scuttle and just continued with getting more camps. Scuttles help you stay without backing and not fall behind. They're also pretty nifty for the extra vision they provide in river which is why I always keep an eye out for them.

I'd also like to interject here that I always go for double scuttle, so at times, I end up encountering the opponent jungle when I go to the second one. I really don't understand how other jungler's instincts are to ATTACK right away. Most of the time I'm stuck with Evelynn or Anivia just running away for dear life. Aggressive much.
Jungling Back to Top
For the people who came for the guide aspect, listen up because this is for you. From my few games of Anivia Jungle, this is all I have been able to digest. It's not much but it is something.

Camps to go to (in order):


~Blue Buff; have your laner(s) leash you until 300 so you're not going to have that hard of a time
~Gromp; this is easy enough for Anivia to take down when she's level 2, assuming you didn't waste your smite on the leash
~Wolves; I don't know their exact names (proves how little I jungle) but they are what you'd wanna head to next
~Scuttle; take scuttle before the other team

From here, you take the other scuttle and continue on with your camps. I usually go krugs, then raptors, back, then go for red buff. Try to take dragons as soon as possible. You can gank bot lane to remove a few contesters and then take it.

Clearing Camps:


You want to spam the E button like your life depends on it whenever you clear camps. Whenever Q is up, use it before E, as it E would then do double damage. Throw a few auto attacks back whenever you can and you'll clear camps fast enough.

Ganking:


You won't gank much as Anivia, but when you have to, here's how to do it. Hide in a bush and wait till the opponent walks back over to the safety of their turret after pushing up too far with no vision. Use your Q to stun them and wall them from safety. Assuming your team knows what to do, they'll see the opportunity right away and follow behind quickly. The opponent is then either forced to burn flash or die.
Game #1 Back to Top

Overview:


For my guide, I'll be talking about my first three games since those were the ones of... the most trial and error, shall we say? The first game I just went into it without expecting anything. I took my usual runes and some speed ones because that's always needed and prepared for the worst to occur. I was practically readying myself for that 0/20 KD.

The first game, however, ended a little differently than I anticipated. No, I didn't go 0/40 instead, that's insane. Instead, I went 4/0/13. That actually is FAR better than I expected.

Like most games, I did well, obviously. UNLIKE most games, all of my teammates were chill and talkative so we all ended up partying after again. League, bringer of salt, tears and friendships since 2009.

Jungling:


Like the degenerate I was and as I mentioned before, I started red. I wasn't too sure how exactly I was going to approach it but I wanted to at least stay within 2 levels of the opposing jungler. I got a decent leash and was able to start a patty cake fest with the krugs, almost dying to them after. I had to chill around for a bit while waiting for the health potions to revive me from death's door before heading to raptor's.

Except... this is where I ran into a problem. I couldn't finish raptors without suffering close death. So, as any incompetent nincompoop, I backed like the scaredy-cat I was and still am proud to be. I made a lot more mistakes, ranging from forgetting about the existence of dragon, to losing control of my own jungle. It was a good thing that my Neeko top was able to carry the heck out of the team because I don't think we would have lived otherwise.

Surprisingly, the entire team thought it was cool that I was trying out Anivia Jungle. I wasn't necessarily good but HEY, at least they weren't flaming me. As a bronze player, I've had my fair share of being poached by anyone and everyone so the change in energy was refreshing to see.

Conclusion:


I really wasn't able to contribute anything until I towards the very end where I got all my assists and kills there. If I could go back and do anything differently, I would have taken more risks. For some reason, I always play for KDA, even if I tell myself that I won't; I subconsciously do regardless. By risks, I mean engage in combat with the enemy jungler when we were at the same level, trust my mechanics when it comes to Anivia more and just gank lanes more constantly without overthinking about it.

Conclusion/Notes/Edit Log Back to Top

Wow. You actually made it to the end. Uh, thanks for hearing a bronze out? No really! Guide uploading hindsight, I never expected my guides to get any more than 100 views but over 20000 in total across all my guides is far more than I was expecting. And to get enough votes to have a score on my Anivia Support guide? That's something else I was never expecting either. I really hope you learned something from this guide and if not, I hope it was worth your time? If you have ANY critique for this guide, I'd really appreciate it if you could write out a comment listing them out or pm me directly. I'm still pretty bad at league, so that way, we can learn together. Again, thank you for even just viewing my guide. Sera is out.
