League of Legends (LoL) Question: What happened to Kai'Sa Jungle?

    What happened to Kai'Sa Jungle?

    When Kai'Sa was first released she was one of the best marksman jungler in the game. All in all, she still has some serious damage, but I rarely see her played in the jungle anymore. Is this because of the marksman nerfs that have affected everyone or is it because she is a bad jungler now. I am planning to buy her so I wanted to know.

    That's what I wondered too. Then I looked at her History on the wiki.

    She got nerfed really hard, look at her history. She's not played that much as ADC either, it's not just as jungler.

    Also, Kindred and Graves happened, and they're the best ADC junglers now.

    She's been getting nerfed repeatedly since patch 8.6. Check out her history page (click the History tab) and see how many times she's had her numbers reduced since she was really strong.

    Also Guinsoo's Rageblade was nerfed recently and Zeal items are more expensive which is bad for her too. I don't think the new IE matters too much since it was never an important item for her.

    These are all reasons why she's weaker in general. For jungle-specific stuff, I guess you could point to the scuttler changes combined with overall power reduction. ADC junglers like Kindred and Kai'Sa tend to live and die on their early game and power curve, so it's possible Kai'Sa simply fell too far behind in power to dominate as a jungler like she did early on.

    I don't remember any changes that nerfed her jungling specifically. If someone else knows of something feel free to correct me.

    Greeting, i think that Kai'Sa jungle is not usefull anymore and Guinsoo's Rageblade was nerfed, Zeal is more expensive so its not eazy to dominate as a jungler she cant get farm eazy anymore too i didnt saw that someone ban Kai'Sa in game for long time she is not in meta anymore she was powerfull champ before (in jungle). Anyway i think that most powerfull jungler is Nocturne he is eazy to gank just by using ult, he dash on you and you are dead.

    Jungle changes to the experience gained were slowed down after level 4 (thank you ZAC and Sejuani), scuttle crab changes and now the fact that it takes much longer to get to level 6 if you don't continuously look to gank and make plays. Also if you notice the shift from AD Kaisa to AP focused Kaisa means that she's a much better pick for the farm up and late game threat, just like every other marksman, now (and again).
