Nightblue3 Releases Preliminary Jungling Guide


With the release of Preseason 5's jungle, plenty of experienced junglers are falling like flies to the stronger, more sophisticated creep camps.

While I haven't had the chance to do extensive testing on in the new jungle, North American challenger tier player Nightblue3 recently put together a quick guide detailing his thoughts on new jungle paths.

Check it out below!

Smiting RED gives HP back, smiting BLUE gives mana back

Sustain Junglers:
  • Fiddlesticks
  • Warwick
  • Pantheon
  • Elise
Start first buff(leash) -> second buff(smite it) -> camp afterwards
SSJ: I believe he means you can start at either red or blue as you have the sustain to polish off either one the second buffs by yourself, and then head to any other jungle camp after you get both buffs. I'm a little confused why he considers Pantheon a sustain jungler, but I guess it's because of his shield?
Non-sustain/low sustain junglers:
  • Rengar
  • Kha'zix
  • Wukong
  • Udyr
First camp (strong leash) -> first buff (smite it) -> second camp -> back and buy jungle item -> second buff.

Notes: Try to smite red buff at the perfect hp or when it’s lower than your smite damage to get maximum hp out of smiting it (it heals for your % current missing hp)

Patch Rundown: Preseason 2015 Part 1


In addition to the official Patch 4.20 notes, Riot's also released a set of insights into their thought process behind the changes in Season 5 as well as their goals and aims for the future.
Highlights include:
  • Increasing Champion Diversity - Change strategy balance so that picking certain champions won't affect overall odds of winning [Read as: Make SSJSuntastic's job harder]
  • Make Turrets Stronger - Reduces champion damage when hit, deals more damage
  • Rift Scuttler - "The Crab" - Minion that runs around granting vision and speed shrine when killed
  • Dragon - More of an investment rather than a simple objective
  • Baron - Gives a very different buff, removed regen, powers up minions
Check out the full scope of details in the video above and the text below!
