League of Legends (LoL) Question: Viable Junglers Not Meta?

Posted in General | Tags: Fizz Twisted Fate 12,251


    Viable Junglers Not Meta?

    I am curious if anyone has some non meta junglers they have enjoyed playing. I have seen a few jungle TF's and Fizz's that have been rather successful. Fizz built the attack speed jungle enchantment and BOTRK and did really well, I have also seen TF build attack speed and max his e and w first. I want to know what other people have been playing and works for them in the new jungle. I really enjoy playing unique picks and would love to try something new. Please tell me the champs and general build to go with it =)

    Jungle kayle is one of those weird ones that can work very well.

    I personally like playing Aatrox as a jungler because he can sustain through his early clears and farm straight for an enchantment where other junglers have to base. but idk how "not meta" he is.

    jungle Irelia works, but is a little tricky, your pre-6 clear time is very slow, so you'll be a little behind. Also, takes longer to get tri-force, devourer enchantment is strong tho.
    for a good gank, you'll need a low minion to q to, and probably not be full hp so your e will stun.

    I really like the jungle Diana, it is actually really strong, you are right about mana, but I find if you build the attack speed item it helps fix that.

    Kayle is actually somewhat meta. She's a B-tier jungler according to saintvicious' tier list.
    FalseoGod (316) | December 18, 2014 2:58am
    Apples, Kayle has a vagina. Or not coz angel. But the voice's female.

    Nidalee can still jungle and she invades well at level 2 if your opponent ins't trying to invade you instead (awkward I know) because if you put W traps around the major escapes (think shaco boxes, but these make you jump hard into your opponent) and then you jav them + cougar W+Q and then keep hitting them they have to try to run (unless high sustain jungler, pointless to invade Udyr for example). She clears decently and her ganks are really scary if you have red buff and manage to hit Q.

    Jungle GP can also work, I do it a lot but his clear is hard. Jungle Diana is also pretty ok but mana issues.

    Oh dang galio? I used to main him early on, I would love to try him in the jungle. AOE and a shield that heals you.
    emoriam (287) | December 13, 2014 1:06am
    I've heard alot about Irelia jungle and even Galio?!
    SNOBOY (13) | December 12, 2014 8:02pm
    Oh yea I was playing a bit of jungle kayle, I really like that pick =) I haven't tried Aatrox in the new jungle. Thanks for the suggestion!
    crashstash5 (2) | December 22, 2014 1:00pm
    Nocturne, Olaf, Vayne, Teemo, Gnar, Rumble, and Kayle are all viable non-meta choices.

    Also if you are above gold I would HEAVILY suggest Twitch. Take E first go take red get to level 2 then get stealth and gank mid. If you do this properly you can have a 100% accuracy on easy level 2 first blood that at higher leagues can be abused VERY hard. Just a warning if you go Twitch though, Only gank top and mid. Your too squishy to easily be able to take bot lane if the other team is not lower then half health.
    SNOBOY (13) | December 22, 2014 8:20pm
    Thanks man I appreciate all the options =) I like jungle nocturne and kayle I will have to try the others out as well.
    Metal Pagan | December 25, 2014 1:06am
    jungle Zyra is fun, just need a hard leash at lvl 1, from lvl2, your plant tank most of the damage

    I used to jungle Karma alot. The ganks are similar to Nocturne's one. It's strong and very viable, most people didn't like it because she's squishy. With the right runes and masteries: it's really fun to play. As for Kayle jungle, I have been doing it since season 2 and wrote a guide on it recently (if you wanna take a look). I already did Janna (just for the fun) I would not recommand it in a serious game, it's not rly viable, but it was hilarious to do. There are honestly alot of possibilities, be original and don't hesistate to try new things. With experiences, you will be able to make decent builds to jungle with almost every champions in the game. If you want more informations or propositions, don't hesitate to send me a pm.

    Karma is similar to Nocturne in her way of ganking: they both use a tether and a speed boost. And your not obligated to kite the jungle with her, it really depends of what your build looks like. I didn't mean they were identic.
    SNOBOY (13) | December 19, 2014 1:21pm
    I think because of the speed boost and leash to hard cc style ganks.
    FalseoGod (316) | December 18, 2014 2:55am
    How the hell is Karma jungle anything similar to Nocturne? Sure she's cool to jungle with - despite mana issues since this patch - but they are nothing alike. She's a CC bomb with burst but you see her coming for days whereas he's about burst and the surprise effect with his ult, not to mention they both approach the act of jungling differently (he sustains pretty well, she needs to kite the jungle, different items, etc.)
    The Cloaked | December 14, 2014 2:51pm
    Jungle Morgana works if you get a good leash at the beginning of the game. Alistar can also jungle but he is a little more meta. Nidalee can jungle too. I don't know if you want a mage, an assassin, a marksman, or a fighter. P.M. me if you want. I know some others.
    Metal Pagan | December 28, 2014 9:18am
    tried the jungle morgana thing in a custom, so w/o leash, and it still worked (blue, wolves,red,back)
    Starstalker (8) | December 21, 2014 8:32pm
    Taric would have such a good kit to jungle if he had more mobility. But yeah it's very viable and really nice to play.
    Blian (16) | December 17, 2014 2:22am
    You should give Taric a shot man. I saw DiamondproX jungling with him and did pretty good. After a full clear he could even go to gank at around 80% HP.
    SNOBOY (13) | December 17, 2014 2:11am
    Just tried morg. Very good. 5-0 start!
    SNOBOY (13) | December 15, 2014 2:06am
    I am down with whatever =) I was actually thinking of trying jungle morgana the other day and I tried it out and it was surprisingly strong. Thanks for the odd ideas I like it.
    nota riven main | December 13, 2014 10:01pm
    riven is probably one of the best junglers this meta since she has time to farm early and can gank at 3 since most junglers have to wait awhile, but i am kind of biased since riven is my most played champion
    SNOBOY (13) | December 15, 2014 2:52am
    Hey it's cool if it is biased, I like hearing it from someone who knows what they are talking about. Thanks!
