VexRoth's Mobafire Blog - Tag: Ganking

Working on collecting information on being a better jungler.

Information is interesting. As with many things timing and circumstance matter.

You might get stellar advice, but not be ready to implement it due to needing other pieces of the puzzle to resolve themselves first.

If you watch a masterful martial artist perform a technique on an opponent, what you get at first might be something along the lines of, well he blocked their punch and then clotheslined their opponent and they fell down.

But when you break it down your realize that very little force was actually used, so it...

Tarzaned offers coaching of a Kindred game play for a sometime Master tier player.

You still have choices of what to do:

1) Take scuttle crab
2) Get wards down at probable locations where their jungler or laners will walk through.
3) Invade the enemy jungle
4) Force* a gank

I'm not much for #4. But.

Think about what you might lose for getting some damage or blowing a Flash or Ghost on an enemy laner.

*don't be stupid about it. Don't gank into a huge minion wave. don't gank if your laner is really low unless you are sure you can kill...
