League of Legends (LoL) Question: AP Junglers this meta

    AP Junglers this meta

    I am looking for an extra AP jungler to add to my champion pool besides Ekko. Ekko is nice, but his CC from his W is delayed, wich isn't useful against some heavy burst champions in 1v1 in this early game scuttle crab meta.

    So Im looking for another option. I was thinking about Diana, ez to play but weak pre 6. So now Im considering Taliyah (very strong rn but nerfs incoming 8.16), Gragas (different build paths, strong with only 1 AP item) and Amumu (can build tank, AP or hybrid and he has lots of CC + buffs incoming).

    So Im wondering wich one would be the best for climbing in SoloQ.
    Thanks in advance :)

    Ekko has fast clears and fleet footwork does wonders on him (: I always pick this when taking ekko in the jungle. You can easily gank top and mid and at level 6 your ganks are much more effective because tower diving becomes a thing. I usually take Fleet Footwork and Sudden Impact. Try it.

    So far I have been playing jungle Ekko with either Electrocute or Dark Harvest. But some extra attack speed with Fleet Footwork seems good to proc his passive faster. Gonna try it soon!:)

    I was also fooling around with getting bloodrazor and warrior (instead of runic echo) as first item, it works against certain match-ups. But falls off later in the game. Haven't tried a specific build path for this. (especially with warrior and nashor's tooth with transcendence))

    Amumu isnt as good of an option if youre going for an ap jungler, since he builds mostly tank, with a little ap. Some picks that are strong but not popular are Nidalee, Evelynn who was mentioned, Elise, and i could even see new Akali being played jungle.

    Hope this helps,

    You are right about Amumu and I don't think Im gonna add him to my champion pool. Nidalee and Elise are strong, but I don't like them that much. So Currently Im learning Taliyah and Evelynn as backup.

    I don't know if Akali Jungle still works though. Her passive doesn't affect monsters so it's hard to clear.

    Akali can still be played jungle, but what you see here often is a Tiamat rush to be able to have decent jungle camp clear.
    I am not saying you should play her jungle and that she is by any means better than Evelynn or Taliyah, but just saying that if you were interested in picking her up for the jungle it wouldn't be the worst.

    I highly recommend Evelynn or Taliyah.
    Silverman43 (85) | August 11, 2018 11:25pm
    Indeed Evelynn is an option too. Gonna try Taliyah first.
