    Yorick. Must stronger in lane, can just joke on people in lane the entire phase and hard counters most people. Getting buffed apparently too to make him scale into late game which means EVERYONE should be learning how to play Chogath and well, Trundle, to deal with him. Trundle has fallen out of play in Jungle recently. He can counter Yorick top I've heard (haven't seen) but otherwise I'm generally not impressed by the champion.

    How you know Yorick's getting buffed? I hope it's true...

    Yorick is great, different builds and different ways to harass. Can dominate top or bottom.
    I build him high AD and a Phantom Dancer, so with his Q active I zoom around from creep camp to creep camp to keep the Q up and moving around to help the team.

    Life steal, a slow, bonus movespeed, and an ulti which allows for an extra 10seconds of damage to be put out by your carry if they die. So good!
    We stopped searching for monsters under our beds when we realized that they were inside us.

    Tell me something, my friend. You ever dance with the devil in the pale moonlight?

    Both. If I -had- to chose, I'd say Trundle due to him being a solid solo top as well as jungler. Time to troll!

    So...

    Here's my current list. See any obvious gaps I should fill? If not I'll probably hold out for Morello's new champion. That or buy me some more runes.

    Ahri Fiora Kayle Poppy Tristana Ziggs
    Alistar Fizz Kennen Riven Trundle
    Amumu Gragas Malphite Ryze Twisted Fate
    Blitzcrank Hecarim Morgana Sejuani Twitch
    Cassiopeia Jax Nocturne Shaco Varus
    Ezreal Nunu Shyvana Vayne
    Sion Warwick
    Sivir Yorick
    Skarner
    Swain

    You need some Ds son.

    Unable to link my list of champions at the moment but im looking for a good jungler with great ganks. Fun to play is a plus.

    There's Maokai and his godly ganks, good lategame but so-so jungling.

    There's Nautilus with his terrible early yet once h's past level 3 he's mostly fine, clears ok (still slowish) and has a near perfect ganking kit, plus awesome tanking capabilities.

    There's Riven, the highest risk-reward jungler I can think of, has really good ganks and snowballs super fast, but if she doesn't get kills she falls behind FAST.

    There's Alistar, the king of early level ganks taht can snowball your laners, but has horrible jungling.

    If you can play him, Hecarim has good ganks too. He needs the kills though, he falls behind kinda hard if you don't and he's super squishy too.

    There's Shaco but... if the enemy knows what they're doing, you'll be useless.

    There's Nocturne, has good ganks that can avoid wards and a gamechanging ultimate, not to mention good dueling capabilities, and a good lategame. He can be quite hit-or-miss though.

    There's Rammus, great ganker, great tank but horrid jungle.

    There's Pantheon, whose ultimate is one of the few that can gank bot with near perfect success even against very defensive duos.

    There's BrOlaf who is the lategame monster, and an overall good ganker though he's mostly used for zoning and map control since his chasing isn't too great.

    There's Trundle, might I say the safest jungle ever. He can't be killed in his own jungle and his ganks are good too... If you can get the pillar right.

    Warwick only works when your team is already ahead, but if they count on you to turn the tide, expect to be dissapointed. He's a good duelist though, and is very hard to kill in his jungle.

    Thanks, May actually go with Maokai, His immobolize is very reliable, Maybe Pantheon too for the stun... Will play around with it later tonight.

    May even try Rammus out... The taunt and minor knock back effect could work out well.

    In addition to what Zero mentioned, Jarvan IV and Xin Zhao are also choices in the ganker jungler category, although Xin is still not as good since you have to end the game early and snowball otherwise the enemies will catch up to you. Both can gank as early as level 2.

    Own Jar IV but not Xin, I enjoy the concept of jungling but what im mostly lacking is how fun it is, No jungle champions i've tried are all that fun for me personally besides Shyvana.

    Tried Xin when he was free a while ago in jungle but as you said he just simply falls of late game which sucks.

    You guys forgot Skarner. Fun to play, good jungling and has really good ganks at lvl 3. Scales extremely well as a tank/bruiser/carry/hybrid.

    One of the champions who really gets into the enemy's face and claw (punch) the shit out of them.

    So for some reason you people are talking jungling (and ganking) but no one mentioned Lee Sin or Corporate Mundo?

  15. #1775
    Nunu + Kog'Maw can play offensive enough, zone Taric/Corki in tournament games. Kog is king.

    Makes the entire team go "protect the Kog'maw". If anything, I should get Graves, but I just can't seem to click with him. Waiting for him to be free or on sale just to practise a bit more.

    Rumble and Irelia for solo top. Rumble is extremely fun, and one of those unique AP bruisers, plus people don't expect his good damage. Irelia is just a machine. Just picked her up as my 97th champion and she just wrecks face. Went like 31 kills in my first PvP game as her.

    You should also get Nautilus, the CC Machine.

    Other than that, I don't have many suggestions. Most of my thoughts seem to end at solo tops anyhow. Though if I were to think of fun (or perhaps just different) champions, it's Jarvan IV for jungle, Heimerdinger for mid and Draven for AD carry awesomeness (his early damage is crazy).

    I have Rumble on two other accounts. I like him and even kitted him out with a Bilgewater skin. Probably requires a bit more play as I just can't seem to turn him into the Killing Machine of Doom (tm). Might also be the lack of runes/masteries, as they're both fairly low level accounts. I agree with Irelia, I should probably just go get her.

    Heimerdinger I don't like - same reason I don't like Ashe. Squishy, slow, no real escapes. Combine that with his tendency to push the lane and not be that useful in teamfights compared to some of the top tier mages, and I think I'll pass.

    you forgot shyvana as jungler good ganks, fast cleartimes but can be easily slowed / cc'ed
