League of Legends (LoL) Question: Top tier junglers

    Top tier junglers

    Hello friends.

    Background story: I haven't really played jungle since devourer meta and I'm kinda stuck on the cinderhulk patch still and I figured it's time to update my champion pool.

    Question: Opinions on top 3 junglers this patch or overall tier 1 junglers at the moment?
    I have picked up Elise and I've had good results with her so I'll stick with her but Nunu & Willump + Elise is kinda small champion pool.

    I've thought about learning Skarner or Nocturne but are they really top tier junglers now? I'm kinda left behind after spending too much time fooling around with other roles.

    Skarner, Olaf, Elise, Rek'Sai, Nidalee, Shyvana and Evelynn are really strong junglers right now in competitive play and in soloqueue at any rank. Out of those, the only picks I consider high priority right now are Skarner and Olaf.

    Keep in mind that a LOT of junglers are viable outside of competitive play as long as you're good at them. A good Amumu player in soloqueue can be much more effective than a decent Rek'Sai, for example. If none of the junglers I listed stand out to you, look for champions you like and learn those. If you want to learn Nocturne he is absolutely fine right now; he's just not considered a high priority pick. Same goes for most (standard) junglers.

    Lee Sin is only for Lee Sin mains or at least Diamond+ imo. He's not weak but he's not forgiving if you're a mediocre Lee Sin player (like me XD). I would always recommend other junglers over him.

    What do you think about Lee Sin?

    Elise is really strong, and people still seem to be perm-banning Skarner and Shyvana. As far as I know, Rek'Sai, Ekko, Gragas and Olaf are also really strong right now.

    As far as I know he's amazing in soloq cause he's impossible to counterjungle or duel 1v1 if he's near an active spire. Plus those things give him a level of awareness for people attempting yo take **** in his jungle that no other jungler has.

    Rek'Sai is the champion I've had the most success with ever throughout my league history but she has only gotten nerfs for such a long time so I'm afraid I can't adapt to those. I will have to check though.

    Skarner is something I've considered but not really sure wether he is good for soloQ or not.

    Aatrox, Vi, and Rek Sai are probably the best right now for me I am a personal fan of the Aatrox devourer.

    Tank junglers are still surprisingly strong still. Cinderhulk giving more flat HP early mean they have more stats (hp) early game but less late game. Also, having a tank jungler and a juggernaut top lane opens for an AP support (and most of them do really well against tanks.)

    Some champions that might not be considered "top top" tier but are still viable in my opinion would be: Maokai, Sejuani, Diana, Rammus and Hecarim. These champs have kinda flew under the radar in jungle at the moment, and both heca/sej can be built offensively. Rammus and Sejuani also sometimes build Liandry's Anguish or Abyssal Mask.

    If I remember correctly, a guy that goes by Aqua Dragon 33 got awarded the best guide for a champion in the jungle role award a while back for his AD Malzahar Jungle that got him to Master tier last season. Due to his versatility and effective strategies that makes him fit in any team comp, AD Malzahar will always be relevant regardless of the meta.

    So yeah, AD Malzahar Jungle. I suggest him for ya!

    With devourer nothing but Xin Zhao, Shyvanna, and Jax. You can build tank and still output lots of Damage.

    I actually jungled Graves various times before the massive jungle monster buffs.
