Tier 1 – The best at what they do. Some are the purist of
control junglers or the fiercest of gankers and some are versatile enough to do
both. Whatever the case these are the best in terms of jungling – they far and
beyond exceed several or all aspects of jungling and have an indisputable
strength about them.
Tier 2 – These junglers are the strongest after the gods. They usually excel
at most of the aspects of jungling and are far and beyond in one or two. They
have fewer weaknesses than most other junglers and may have a niche ability
unique to them. When you want to excel at jungling – you come to these first.
Tier 3- These junglers are very similar to Tier 2 heroes. They are so
similar that they’re basically interchangeable and are very capable of
competing with tier 2 junglers. The only reason they are in a separate bracket
is due to them being not as well rounded or someone above them is their
superior mirror. Also for organization purposes.
Tier 4- These junglers are weaker than the other junglers either due to
naturally just not being suitable for the jungle or having to alter their
optimal builds in order to jungle successfully. At the same time there are
others above who are simply miles better and they bring nothing really unique
to jungling. They’re usually prone to being dominated by stronger junglers.
Tier 5- A special tier graded differently than the others. The junglers here
CAN jungle but they usually have to impact their standard builds in interesting
ways in order to successfully do so. Either the impact is minor, but
noticeable, or major and could affect them later into the game. Placement is
also a bit wishy washy.
Alright let’s explain a few things
Nocturne – he went above Warwick
because at the moment he just does a lot more than Warwick does. Probably should have raised him
up before and I may have to drop Warwick
a bit more.
Yorick – Still very niche but more effective than I
initially gave him credit for. It’s a pretty all or nothing jungler.
Nunu – pretty much he was strong because his slow as
overpowered and now without it (and his stronger consume) he’s pretty much
incapable of doing a lot of stuff he used to be able to do. He’s looking less
and less spectacular. Only reason he didn’t drop more was because Jarvan’s been
getting weaker and thus I don’t know how far others will surpass them both.
Skarner – I initially thought he was total crap but seeing
more builds with him gave him more points into the build score (as it’s no
longer an outlandish build for him) and he does have some good, but not unique,
traits for the jungle. He’s nothing special but not terribly bad. He just
doesn’t stand out. He didn’t pass Gragas since they’re pretty much the same but
Gragas has a slight edge due to steroids and build malleability.
New Champion – Talon
I may add Soraka but I’m betting they’re going to butcher
