Elise is hands down one of my favorite junglers. I'm attracted to AP Carry junglers such as, Nidalee Evelynn , and obviously...Elise However, there is a lot that goes into mastering Elise. This Elise guide will help you understand proper runes/masteries, ability sequence, teamfighting, item builds, and etc. I am currently low platinum elo hovering around 1800 mmr. There isnt a set way to play or build a champion. Everyone processes the game differently which makes them stronger/weaker in other areas. So PLEASE, if you want to IMPROVE, take the time to mess around and figure out what works for you!!
Keep in Mind : I chose these runes based on what made the jungle clear more efficient
These are the runes I choose because they give you damage for faster early clears. Since you will be in spider form the majority of the time your spiderlings will tank most of the damage from jungle camps. This makes armor and magic resist stats unnecessary. The attack speed reds will allow you to deal faster damage per second (In spider form, her basic attacks deal damage based on your ability power, so extra ability power is always recommendable)
Ability Power : Allows spiderlings to deal more damage while clearing.
Attack Speed : Allows a faster clear while in spider form.
Scaling Health : Allows you to become generally tankier over time.
READ THIS :
Masteries in season 6 really depends on player preference. It's honestly best for you to try out different mastery set ups to find what suits you best. For anyone who isn't very knowledgeable regarding mastery trees, the set up I run (12/0/18) is a very general way to approach jungling. REMEMBER, this exact mastery page is intended for Elise Jungle.
Smite is obviously a given. This is a JUNGLE GUIDE, right..?
You could probably argue why Ghost would be more suitable than Flash.
But personally I think Flash is usually the better choice ON ELISE.
For Example : As Elise, when ganking a lane it is easier to Flash next to the enemy laner to land a point blank Cocoon. Well, this example is pretty bad. However it is suppose to show you (the reader) what you can do with flash. Also its just a good escape to have.
TO KEEP THIS SIMPLE : Its best to take Flash and Smite for best results!
If you found this video helpful and you are interested in learning more, LS (Last Shadow) is a really good source to learn a lot of general information. He does 1 on 1 coaching sessions and streams it live. Here is his YouTube channel. I HIGHLY recommend you check it out!
Assuming that you know what your abilities do by now, I'm going to go over what is typically the best combo when fighting an enemy as Elise.
Starting off, whether you are ganking or looking for a pick, its best to open up with your Cocoon You start with this to keep the enemy from being able to avoid any other possible CC or damage. Now is the time for you to unleash as much damage as you can within that small window. Use Neurotoxin and Volatile Spiderling quickly after you have stunned the enemy. Lastly, go into Spider Form. End the combo by using Venomous Bite and activating Skittering Frenzy. Finish the kill by auto attacking. REMEMBER, in Spider Form your auto attacks deal ability power.
You are using Cocoon so you have time to deal as much damage per second as possible. This is the shorter way of explaining. But its really easy to get down once you start playing more games on Elise. It's easy to pick up but it will take some time to master it.
Elise is definitely not the best champion to team fight with, however you can do a lot with her. The best way to utilize Elise in a team fight is by engaging with your Cocoon to keep an enemy out of a fight, by instantly pick someone off in a fight, or to provide peel for your carries.
Also, this concludes my first guide. I would appreciate any feedback. I would like to spend more of my time providing the community with what little knowledge I hold regarding league of legends. With a little bit of help we can all improve together!
