Who Am I?

My name is Smartest2. I am a Diana Jungle main, and have been for about 2-3 seasons now.

What Rank Did I Reach With Diana?

I capped at Diamond 1 with Diana. I play in amateur tournaments, and my Diana typically has a 100% ban rate against me.

Why Do I Play Diana In The Jungle?

Honestly, it's just easier to farm the gold you need to hit your damage spike. Playing Diana in a lane is still good too, it's just a little easier to control the game as Diana from the jungle.

Why No Nashor's Tooth??

A lot of people really like Nashor's Tooth on Diana. It gives great damage over time with those autos. I just prefer my targets to die without needing to auto at all. All of the items in this build serve a very specific purpose, and I wouldn't be able to substitute out anything for Nashor's Tooth.

Runes (Jungle)

What Runes Do I Run in the Jungle?

I keep it pretty straightforward and grab the Domination and Precision tree.

Domination Tree Explanation:

Electrocute gives us that nice little bit of extra burst which especially helps out early game.

Alternatives: None

Sudden Impact gives us a bit of extra armor/magic pen after we use our ult, helping dish out a little bit more damage overall.

Alternatives: none.

Eyeball Collection is what I personally take as it gives you some additional adaptive damage.

Alternatives: Zombie Ward

Ravenous Hunter is my personal favorite on this slot. I like the little bit of sustain you get from the spellvamp. Sometimes this can really save your life.

Alternatives: Relentless Hunter to get around the map faster.

Precision Tree Explanation:

Legend: Alacrity Helps us with some extra attack speed throughout the game. It helps make up for the lack of Nashor's Tooth attack speed. 100% necessary!

Alternatives: None

Coup de Grace is really nice because it increases our damage to champions with less than 40% hp, which is great for ganks. The temporary adaptive damage you gain on a takedown is nice too (10 adaptive damage for 10s).

Alternatives: Triumph

Diana in the Top Lane

Diana Top in Season 9?

Diana is probably the strongest split pusher in League of Legends. If you take Lich Bane + Nashor's Tooth.. you can take out a tower in under 7s late game.

Under SEVEN SECONDS!? That's quite an exaggeration.. OR IS IT??

The Numbers

Go into practice tool and try it for yourself. You will take towers in the blink of an eye.

With the build included in this guide, I have won base races where I out-pushed 3 enemies on my own.


I think split pushing is very strong in the meta right now, and late game there aren't many champions who can contest Diana. Even Tryndamere, who is known to be unstoppable late game, can't do anything if you get Zhonya's Hourglass.
