Najin Mokuza's Jungle 10 Commandments for Solo Queue

Even though you spend most of your time fighting against AI creeps, jungling's not exactly the easiest position for most players. Knowing what to do is half the battle, and mechanics are less important than using them in the right manner.

Najin Shield's jungler Mokuza from Korea wrote up a few specific rules which were kindly translated by maknoonfan11. Check them out below:

Original Korean Text:
  1. 망한라인은 절대가지 않는다.
  2. 첫마을 귀환에서 와드를 사지 않는 라인은 가지않는다
  3. 라인을 밀어두고 와드를 박지 않는 라인은 가지 않는다.
  4. 첫 리쉬가 없는 미드는 버린다.
  5. 적 카운터 정글에 철저히 대비한다.
  6. 흥한라인은 최대한 도와주되 흥한라인 근처에 와드질을 꼼꼼이 도와준다
  7. 미드는 최대한 찌른다 지나가다 얼굴이라도 비춘다.
  8. 6랩전 꼭 탑 갱은 한번간다.
  9. 서포터와 동조하여 와드의 위치를 파악한다.
  10. 저거 다지켜도 망할땐 망하는거다.
Translated English Text:
  1. Don't gank a lane that's completely lost
  2. Don't gank a lane that doesn't buy a ward on his first back to base.
  3. Don't gank a lane that pushes but doesnt ward
  4. Dump the midlaner that doesn't come to help leash
  5. Always be prepared for enemy jungler to come counter jungling
  6. Help the lane that is already winning and help them ward their surroundings.
  7. Help out mid as much as possible, show your face even if you are just passing by.
  8. Before Level 6, gank top at least once.
  9. Communicate with your support player on where the enemy wards are.
  10. Even if you follow all these commandments,losing games are still lost.( there are games nothing can be done about. )

Essentially, it boils down to this: Jungling (and every other lane) is about making the most out of your time. Every moment you're doing something that's not worthwhile or nothing at all is a moment that you're falling further behind in the game.

Even though the game is a 5v5 battle, if you want to win then the best way to do it is for each player to perform a little better than their counterpart in the game. In terms of junglng, this is the way to do it.

In solo queue, junglers must figure out which people they can rely on, and which people are just going to get them killed. (AKA waste time)

What do you guys think about the "rules"? Do you agree or disagree? Got any other tips? Comment below!

    Nice article! The only thing I disagree with is the emphasis on leaving people alone in the 1st four rules, sometimes it is best to babysit weaker players IMHO, no harm in some friendly instruction to the non-leashing mid- or non-warding lane, if done with tact and a friendly demure it often will solve the problem!

  2. I find that if a lane is having trouble, I ward up my jungle entrances (gogo sight stone), that way if they try and counter me, my team can react. Then just babysit as much as possible to push that tower. Once the tower is pushed, ward their jungle, so the pushed tower laner can then use their jungle for farm. Only works when people cooporate and listen obviously. Overall though, I would tend to agree with him, especially since this guy is probably double my 'elo'.

    Hi Fs IBackPack, that's a very good point on the non-leashing mid and non-warding lane. I think Mokuza's rule on that one mostly stems from the fact that he's playing at a very high elo where they should probably know better haha. Thanks for commenting!

  4. SSJSuntasticJanuary 02, 2013

    Hi Scott, that sounds like a reasonable strategy, you'll have to do it early on though! Usually when a lane starts losing, invading their jungle for creeps tends to be more trouble than it's worth if the enemy has bursty heroes with gap closers (which they generally do). I'm also a big fan of sightstone on junglers though!

    Figured you'd like that :P

  6. I liek stratigy infoo... meow :D

    Finally... I think i really need more of these simple tips to improve..
    I already have mechanics, but i miss in some points of general knowing mostly..
    More rules, more rules!
    I like them all, and agreed... i can figure what and why he is trying to show with it

  9. Good to do is also lane swapping, it helps à lot jungler that needs afk farming à bit, even For like 5 minute.. The carry/support lane will push and ward. And the botlane will farm underturret. Enemy will focus on farming and forgot to ward. 5 minute after swapping, double kill100%
    Works best with chogath jax olaf as solo/jungler
