Of course i don't mind top lane. I was thinking which jungler is good for training/developing my skills as jungler. I was thinking about Shyvana/Udyr/Lee Sin. Any propositions?

Well if you want to duo as a top lane/jungler, Lee Sin is the best option imho. Malphite can also duo very good as laner/jungler, but he is banned 90% of the time in ranked...

On the junglers side, think of Amumu. He had the best win ratio not long ago in ranked, and for a reason. His bandage+ult or flash+ult can win you many games.

Also, Nocturne is really fun and can gank like no other, but you'll need to have good communication with your team.

Hope it helps ;)

Best jungler to learn. Isn't the best at everything, but learning him makes you learn everything.

Depends on what you wanna do with your jungler.
If you want to affect the game as much as possible, gank a lot and have a teamfight presense then go with Amumu, Maokai, Malphite, Nocturne, Nautilus and Alistar.

For dueling\counterjungling pick Shyvana, Olaf, Riven, Darius.

Lee Sin, Skarner, Udyr and Dr. Mundo are good all-around.

I don't recommend starting with counterjungling until you memorize timers and jungle pathing, because you will have to predict where the enemy jungler is gonna go (unless you don't want to sit in the brush for a few minutes). And unless all your lanes are doing really well, you're much better off helping them, rather than farming the jungle.

I've started jungling with Amumu and had plenty of success. He is vulnerable as hell to invasions though.
If I had to choose 3-4 jungle champs to start with, I would go with Lee Sin, Amumu, Skarner and Maokai.
Every time you succeed, I bleed a little.

Very good post from Last Plagas.

I would just add Nunu to the counterjungling pick, although he can't really 1v1. A fun strat I've seen TSM pull of is invade blue at lvl 1 with Blitzcrank and Nunu. Blitz pulls, Nunu smite+consume. Insta steal blue ;)

Also, Shen can be jungled quite effectively if you know what you're doing. He is really slow to jungle with, but has great utility throughout the game

Thanks for suggestions, I will try a Skarner for sure and propably Shen. At the moment i am playing with Lee Sin and Amumu, however my team mates are not always picking champions with enough good damage for Amumu, so I am going to use more all-around champions.

I personally just got Lee Sin to work on my jungling, and I really like him. His skill set and combos are hard to master but they are a ton of fun when you get them down pat.
