Hallo dear Mobafire community.

Its my first post here and i thank you all for spending time to read this :)
I have been playing LoL for about 2 months now and the aspect that i love and really find gamechanging is the jungling part. I have been practising jungling myself with most jungle/capable champions with my top 3 being udyr/Noctune/Jarvan depending on the setup.

Having gathered myself 4k ip atm i am on the verge whether to buy Shaco or Trynda for next jungler and i would like your opinion regarding this :)

Thank you in advance

I would not recommend either of those. I jungle with the "normal" junglers and, those three you have up there should be fine for every situation.

If you need a jungler that can do what Jarvan, Udyr, and Nocturne can't, then you are out of luck to be honest.

They can do just about everything anyone else can.

Nocturne, best ganks in the game with ult, fear, and duskbringer.

Udyr, one of the fastest and most sustainable jungles in the game.

Jarvan, a Tank jungler, has a meh clear time, but his ganks are good, and he's a very good late game champion.


Nunu is a really good jungler, and he's only 450 :)

Yi is great as well.

I'm probably not a good judge, since i think that Teemo is a pro jungler :p.

Shaco is really dependent on not being counter jungled because he relies on his boxes being used on the jungle creeps. He is one of the fastest gankers because he can take red at level 1, get Deceive at level 2 and stealth into lane.
He's really fun but, he's really difficult to get the hang of.

Jarvan has an ok clear time but think that he can gank @ lvl 2 easily...

Is shaco squishy though?
Exp with Udyr/Noct/Jarvan i can easily counter jungle AND manage to kill any counter jungler with ease..

How is Shaco in theese areas?

I don't know really. I don't jungle Shaco, lol. I just know from people who do.
Shaco is squishy as hell. There's no denying that. He can't stop counter junglers too well but, he can escape from them like a boss.

Jarvan can't stealth, slow with red buff, and do really good damage at level two either :s.
