Hey everyone, welcome to the Jungle Tier List for Patch 12.9! This tier list will consist of all the current Meta Junglers ranked from S+ tier (the best) to C tier (not viable). Please note that some lower ranked champions may perform better in Higher Elo. No tier list is perfect, and this is all opinion-based. If this Tier List happens to help you out, a vote would be appreciated so this can be shared to more people who wish to know the best and worst current Junglers. Let me know if you want me to add a note to each champion and feel free to give me some feedback on this list.

If you guys appreciate this tier list, feel free to come check out my twitch channel:

OP Tier

Current OP Junglers. These picks are by far the best champions to pick if you want to climb with due to their high potential to snowball and carry games, as well as just being very broken and over-tuned currently.



These Junglers are in the current meta and you cannot go wrong with any of these picks. They are very strong in all stages of the game and are the best options to go for if the current OP picks are locked in / banned.



These Junglers are solid picks, however are outshined but the Champions listed above due to inconsistency and underperforming because of a lack of snowballing potential and playmaking ability 



These champions are not totally bad, however are not doing as well as many other Junglers, some of these champions if played at a good level, can be made a good pick.



Please do not go near these Junglers if you are trying to climb

I lost to a Rumble Jungle OTP with +1m mastery points the other day, it was my first time to see him being played in Jungle :D

btw, Nunu & Willump sure does know how to make big snowballs, but I don't think he's as OP as Diana (considering he got nerfed recently). I see the girl in literally every single ranked game (and I yet choose to ban Kayn :D)
I would argue that Hecarim should be higher but he is getting a nerf in 3 days so... he probably deserves being below Diana.
I want Diana to go back to mid lane :D

I dunno from my point of view Master Yi`s nerf was actually a buff
Tremic (9) | March 5, 2022 2:17am
Was about to add him into S+ Tier as he's insane this patch but he's getting hard nerfed

I'm really intrested why did you move Kha'Zix up on tierlist, I feel like he's super bad since preseason. Has super bad clear, basically does 5 camps slower than Hecarim, Evelynn, Karthus and many others(like 10+ more champs) do 6 camps.
Agree on Hecarim change, I think he's strong still but people need to adapt for new builds without Sterak's Gage.
Also I think that Evelynn is A tier, considering her potential to solo carry games, especially in soloQ matches where people are not coordinated.
DjapeFromSerbia (20) | February 16, 2022 7:38am
Forgot to add that I think that tierlist is overall great! Good job!

idk what shaco is doing in S tier honestly he trash
Tremic (9) | February 16, 2022 11:41am
Average of 51% W/R for a "hard champ" = Trash?
Nairey | February 17, 2022 5:29am
I haven't really put much thought in my comment but really I don't get how Shaco is so strong, he's such a weird champ.
If you play him AD sure he got assassination potential but that's about it, he can't do much late game, he gets 1v1'd by any other good jungler (if he doesn't die he surely doesn't win against most of the meta junglers rn). One if his strength is invading the enemy jungler but it never works if you're playing against a decent player. Against a good team comp he's totally useless in teamfights (if you build him AP I guess you can deal a lot of damage with boxes and ult but I don't see other utilities than that). Overall I think the reason why Shaco even has winrate is because people don't deal with him correctly and consistently, I'm not god and my opinion isn't the saint truth but I think he should be at least one tier lower, it's true that he has options in solo queue but S tier? I would put him A tier

need to put gwen jungle in there she's pretty good and popular
Tremic (9) | February 16, 2022 1:12am
Agreed, added her this patch however low-ish down due to not being popular in lower elos

Hecarim: Moved from S Tier to OP Tier

Trundle: Moved up from A Tier to S Tier
irelia support | January 25, 2022 6:55am
Diana isn't good against the new crown item and the axiom arc item as well, I feel like in terms of comp she shouldn't be considered OP unless she's going against a not fed crit adc and a squishy team.
Crazyson | January 22, 2022 3:26am
why did you move graves from op to s tier?
Tremic (9) | January 22, 2022 3:41am
Forgot to mention, shield bow nerfs affected him from last patch as his winrate and power overall has gone down, still a strong pick but not compared to Hecarim, Diana etc.

Diana: Moved up from B Tier to S Tier
