Greetings,

So here's the deal, i have been enjoying the jungle for weeks now, and started to get a little bit... how do you say ? Not bored but a little... u know. I just played Xin Zhao to much :P

So i started looking for a second choice, my eyes fell for Riven ! But im wondering is here play style like Xin, or is it completly different ? And if it is different, who is like Xin ?

Ty for your time

Greetz

She's quite the unique (but not necessarily bad) jungler, is old Riven. Better played as a solotop in my eyes, she fits a niche role in the jungle.

Basically, Riven's playstyle is balls deep. Top lane or jungle. You go balls deep in every situation. Aggressive counter jungling to try and duel them (and you will come out on top) and ganks galore. That's not like how Xin should be played, his duelling isn't all that great.

If I was to compare someone to Xin, a few come to mind -
Maokai
Lee Sin (somewhat)
Jarvan

Why these champions? Those, and Xin can have really good ganks once they reach level 2. There's a slight difference with Lee, however, as he can counter jungle a LOT better than Xin can.
