Well what are your thoughts?

I've been using them on Dr. Mundo and Olaf since they scale with health anyways. And since the wards pay for themselves rather sooner than later I don't think they're much of a wasted slot.

If I had 950 gold to spare, I usually wouldn't be buying a Sightstone... Maybe Lee Sin, but nothing else that comes to mind.

They're good for supporty CC junglers who don't really "need" the stats.

Maokai would be my prime-example of a jungler who goes great with it(not sure if it's worth it anymore after the nerf though). Spirit/Madred's+sightstone
Ty MM and Blood for the sigs :3 | Rammus is comming back - heard it here first!

Except Wriggles subpar on most junglers compared to Spirit Stone, or just leaving it at Razors.

I haven't really been getting that since I can get Tenacity from the Spirit Stone upgrade. :/

Well I guess you're right just thought it would be more cost efficient in the long run.

I get Wriggle's Lantern+ Spirit Stone, no need for Sightstone. You got then Maim, Butcher and Rend against monsters, which even scale with each other. But on Nunu jungle, I would get it on top of all those items, because ward spam and map control is the key to jungle Nunu.

Let us calculate :P


Wards cost 75g each
The highest tier sight stone allows 3 "free" wards to be activated at all times, if you recall every once in a while.


The Ruby Sightstone costs 1550g
The amount of money spend on that item purely for the wards is:
1550g - 950,4g (stats worth of health) = 599,6g

That amount of money equals:
599,6 / 75 = 7,99 wards

Since you can put down 3 at the time but also will keep each ward for the full duration (which is 3minutes), then you need to spend 7,99 minutes on warding to make it worth it.
Or: 23,97 minutes when you just keep 1 ward active at all times


The Wriggle's Lantern costs 1600g
The amount of gold spend purely on wards is:
1600g - 600g (armor) - 600g (attack damage) - 400g (lifesteal) = 0g

You even have a unique effect from this item that will increase your jungle speed aswell, making it even more cost effective.

This means you actually "get gold" from warding.
From the first minute you have this item, it will be worth its cost.


Of course, since there are AP junglers that cannot rely on Wriggle's Lantern, for them Ruby Sightstone might be a good option :D
(If you ward all the time of course)

Hope I helped
Change is gooooood

It's like getting a GP/5. Gives a bit of health and unlimited wards. I would get it if you get a decent lead, because then you can control the enemy jungle too which snowballs your lead and puts the enemy jungler further ahead/behind, respectively.
If you think I did a good job criticizing a guide or giving helpful info, or for just being a bawz of a bro, rep would be awesome :)
