Jungling is an important role which is crucial to a team’s success. Laners rely on their jungler to gank effectively and stop the enemies from snowballing. However, doing so is difficult. New players in particular have considerable trouble adjusting to the highly situational playstyle of the jungler, every game is completely different. In order to get used to the jungle, you should play the easiest junglers in League of Legends. This will give you the tools you need for success. To help you decide which champion to choose, take a look at the top 10 easiest junglers in League of Legends!
10. Xin Zhao
With a fairly binary play-style, Xin Zhao is honestly a great option for new players. His early clears are incredible, his W especially helps him keep his health topped up. His ganks are great too as his E is a gap-closer and if you can hit your enemy three times, you can knock them up with his Q. However, he is quite snowball reliant. You’ll find yourself getting blown up in team-fights without contributing much, so it’s important to get an early lead and get the snowball rolling.
Fiddlesticks is an awesome jungler who is really easy to play. His W deals good damage while healing himself and his E can deal heavy damage to groups of enemies, such as the Krugs or Raptors. His ganks before level 6 are a bit lackluster, you’ll have to get help from your team to ward your camps to make sure enemies don’t try and stall your level 6 powerspike. After 6, you can use your ultimate to single handedly win team-fights or execute successful ganks.
The job of Nunu is to make the enemy jungler as useless as Nunu is. As he’s more of a support champion, he doesn’t do much in terms of damage but he tanks really well and can steal enemy camps with ease. He is noticeably boring to play though, like extremely boring. If you can ignore this and learn to counter jungle effectively, Nunu can be an excellent jungle choice.
Rammus’ early game can take some getting used to, his clears are slow and his ganks can be avoided. Once you start to get a few items, that all changes. Camps will get deleted, allowing you to Powerball right into the enemies face and taunt them, tanking any damage with ease. His team-fighting is great too, you can force the enemies to attack you while your armor and ult wear them down. He’s a great jungle choice, especially against AD heavy team compositions.
She’s been made more difficult with her mid-season update but she’s still a powerful tank with great effectiveness. She has high tankiness, good CC and mobility. You can travel around the map with ease, ganking or counter-ganking effortlessly. She has almost no damage though, so you really need your team to follow you up if you go in.
5. Master Yi
Farm camps, just farm camps. Master Yi is heavily item dependent but once he gets those items…Well, it’s absolutely terrifying to see a 2+ item Master Yi running towards you. Able to delete squishies in less than a few seconds, he’s the perfect choice for players who are tired of relying on their team. Just be aware that if he falls behind, it’ll take a long time for him to catch back up.
Dear god, Volibear is so good. Visually he’s quite appaling, sporting old school aesthetics and particle effects. Gameplay wise he’s incredible, bringing high tankiness and good damage to the table. You can’t outrun or chase down a good Volibear, instead you have to take him on as a group and burst him down as much as you can. This kind of co-ordination will not be happening unless you’re in like Platinum ELO. Highly recommend Volibear as a tank option for your jungler roster.
Chosen by SKT T1 Blank himself to receive a skin, Zac is really strong right now and probably will be for a while. His engage range is crazy, slinging himself massive distances to gank. If you have a high damage team that need early support, Zac is your man. His weaknesses? He doesn’t have much damage at all, he has decent escapes and sticking power but if he doesn’t have his team with him, then he’s useless.
Want to know how to get easy kills and assists? Play Amumu -> Gank -> Q -> R. Enjoy your free wins 🙂
Seriously though, Amumu is exceptional at low skill levels. Players simply don’t know how to deal with him, his AoE stun is almost always forgotten by the enemies and you can carry team-fights with ease. You can build AP on Amumu and he’d still be tanky with high damage. Just make sure you keep that blue buff, you really don’t want to face his mana problems. They aren’t that bad but you really need your mana to keep up with everyone else.
This champion was specifically created to help players adjust to the jungle. He’s so good that you don’t even need to take any potions with your first buy, yet you can still come out of your first clear with full HP. His versatility is incredible, you can be effective as a full tank, carry with full damage or do a bit of both with a bruiser build. He does admittedly have big mana problems but if you manage this correctly (which is important in League of Legends), you can minimise this weakness. Play Warwick and enjoy the jungle, as its the most difficult role in the game!
