    Status of Mundo?

    what is the current Status of Dr. Mundo (jungle and top)? Blade of the Ruined King counters him quite hard, but it got nerved, so how much is he affected of it now?

    I have seen some players playing him successfully top at platinum, as he can hurt pretty badly with magicpen and cleaver. Of course, you need for start a big amount of pots and bead, but that is just normal. And later in the game, he has more farm from top, means he will reach his monster status faster. Especially if you build items like Liandry's Torment or Sunfire Cape. Then he is a pain to deal with.

    Dr mundo is fine. He will be played more in different metas, depending on team comps. Botrk is countered by randuin's omen, so if the enemy decides to build botrk they can just be counter built. He can be counter picked as well, with % damage champions like xin zhao, elise..

    He's just played less because vi, xin zhao, and jarvan are too good at the moment. (Other champions too, like hecarim)

    His sustain is not really a problem, and he is an amazing late gank tank because of his percentage damage.

    It is not really the BotRK that counters him, it is the jungle ;P

    The guy is pretty weak solo top, due to a very weak early game.
    Mundo is also pretty weak since the jungle got buffed.
    He just cannot kill the jungle that easily anymore since he was AOE dependant.
    He gets wrecked by the enemy easily.

    Health is never a problem on mundo, the only reason he is not used often is because of his ganks. While they aren't terrible, cleavers are easy to juke, and other junglers gank better in general. Mundo clears faster than vi, jarvan, xin, etc.

    I think your just talking from a theoretical point of view and I can see why, but if you get first item giants belt or kindlegem , the bealth cost problem goes away after the first recall or a few minutes later.

    And what happends to people without health? They die.

    True story
    Meiyjhe (539) | March 22, 2013 7:41am
    It still all drains his HP which he requires for the jungle.
    Which is the whole problem with Mundo.
    Whether it be a draining W or a draining Q/E, it still drains his health.

    Have you ever played jungle mundo o-o
    He clears faster than most junglers be,cause his aoe clears the small creeps and his cleaver and e destroys the big creep
    Meiyjhe (539) | March 22, 2013 2:02am
    It is an AoE he keeps on all the time when clearing camps.

    Sounds rather dependant to me.
    Aseafy (25) | March 21, 2013 8:41pm
    Mundo has 1 ability, but that doesn't make him aoe dependant.

    That's like saying xin zhao is aoe dependant
    Meiyjhe (539) | March 21, 2013 2:15pm

    If you start with W, you will lose a lot of health since it drains your health. At the same time it is necessary because you need it to clear camps. Since you need to use your W to clear camps (especially early game), you are aoe dependant.

    AoE works not so well in the S3 jungle, since the big monsters are much stronger than in S2, requiring more single target damage. Mundo needs W for jungling, W drains health, monsters are stronger against AoE including the W of Mundo.

    I cannot say if Mundo can't jungle anymore due to this problem, because I haven't seen even 1 jungle Mundo in S3, while I have seen many in S2.
    Is quite suspicious, no?

    Start with w, but u can max q or e. Your single target damage is super strong. Mundos clear is great and will always be great, the only problem atm is he scales better off of health which is bad against botrk, and there are simply junglers that gank better.

    amumu is good because he has fast clears and stuns, yes, he has fast clears despite being aoe.
    Meiyjhe (539) | March 21, 2013 2:01pm

    All the Mundo junglers I have seen my life, started with his W. I doubt that all those people were wrong.

    Amumu has a lot of reasons why he is a great jungler, not just his aoe spells :O
    He has % damage (W), great damage reduction (E) and also great gankability.
    Aseafy (25) | March 21, 2013 1:56pm
    I don't know why you would max w first ... his buff speed is extremely fast and he clears really fast in the jungle still.

    Using your arguments, amumu would be a dead jungler.
    Meiyjhe (539) | March 21, 2013 1:51pm
    He is aoe dependant in the jungle.

    His jungle speed is entirely based on it.
    Aseafy (25) | March 21, 2013 1:51pm
    Mundo was not aoe dependant. He has the best ad steroid in the game for single target?
    LiLStormcloaK (72) | March 21, 2013 12:02pm
    and he has negative sustain.
    He just dosent fit the meta
    Meiyjhe (539) | March 21, 2013 9:36am
    And yes, lategame he is okay, but he is still not much better than any other bruiser.
