Warwick Jungle

By ziemba03
First Clear path
As Warwick, whether you start red or blue does not matter a whole lot. It's best to start whichever buff is on the bottom side of the map, where you can get a leash from your ADC and support. Don't smite either buff, wait to use your Q until you've lost a little health. It is an auto attack cancel, so you can go: auto auto auto q auto; for your first rotation. If you started red, go straight to wolves, smite big wolf, then clear blue buff and then gromp. Then look to take crab and for your first gank. If you start blue, go to gromp and then wolves, smiting big wolf. After, clear red and look for crab and a first gank.
Clearing Crab and dueling Back to Top
Always be aware that when you are looking to clear first crab, the enemy jungler is looking to do the same. They may have started opposite buff, and in that case you will trade crabs, meaning you take one while they take the other. However, if they started the same buff as you, you two will be competing for the same first crab, and risk an early duel. Luckily, Warwick is one of the best early-game duelers, especially with red buff. Be confident in your ability to fight for crabs or scare junglers away, using your Q to reset your auto attack anmiation and your E to fear them away.
Lane positions and What they Mean Back to Top
Another thing to keep in mind is where the surrounding lane is. When clearing crabs, looking to do dragons, or ganking, you must look at where the minion wave is, and where champions are. When clearing first crab, it is safe to assume enemy laners will be focused on farming and avoiding costly trades. However, this means your laner is as well, so don't assume they will be able to help you. When clearing top-side crab, always be checking on where the enemy top laner and mid laner are, to make sure they have not left lane to try to contest crab. When clearing bot-side crab, look at the enemy mid-laner and bot duo. If the enemy laner is pushed up, where the minion wave is close or under your team's tower, this makes taking crab, dragon, or invading enemy jungle very dangerous. Unless you have vision of bushes, you don't have a way of knowing where they are, or if they know where you are.
Ganking Back to Top
It is easiest to gank lanes when they are pushed up, meaning the wave of minions is close or underneath your tower, and the enemy laner is hovering around the middle of the lane or closer to your tower. This makes it easier to get behind them, and force them to use Flash or costly spells, and increase the likelihood that your gank works out. This is where control wards are helpful, and you should look to place them in bushes you travel by to ensure they don't know you are coming. You can also use the light blue vision plants to scan bushes and areas, checking for enemy wards. However, the scan it does also shows up on the enemy maps, if they are around to see it. Know that popping these plants can give away your position. Pre level 6, run at champions and use your Q to get on them. Activate your E as you near them, and pop it as soon as you can to fear them, CCing them. With level 6, you can start with the same strategy, but use your ult when they start to flee, or once they Flash and try to escape. Without your ult, it is difficult to gank, but still possible. Be careful and try to use your ult whenever it is off cooldown
Taking Dragon or Rift Herald Back to Top
Due to your W and passive, taking buff objective such as dragon or rift herald by yourself is not very difficult. You can solo the first dragon or herald with smite starting at level 4, or without smite starting at level 5, if healthy. Once you have finished your jungle item, you can take both with relative ease. The only drawback is it takes some time, so make sure to check lane positions and have a control ward in the area to prevent enemies from interrupting. Dragons are VERY important in this season, so look to take them whenever possible.
