Always get a leash, and smite this buff, as S4 smite has got a reduced cooldown with less damage. This means that you can go
Buff (smite) --> small camp --> 2nd Buff (smite) --> Gank
How to effectively do jungle creeps:
If you have blue buff, you basically
But if I don't have blue buff, I conserve my mana and just use
Purple Side Route:
Blue (smite)-Wolves-Red-Gank OR if no lanes are overextending, farm or follow there jungler(i.e counter gank).
So after this you basically can attack mid or top, if one's overextending or on the river, it's a easy kill. Though if there at their tower better go farm creeps because you won't get a kill unless he's really low.
Well you basically just approach him and when you get in range of the stealth, use your W to chase him down and spam E-Q and autos. Her ganks are vicious on mid too as you can blow a flash easily with red buff.
Blue side route:
Red (smite) - wraiths - blue (smite) - Gank: Getting to level 3 and then finding a gank, see if any overextend mid/top.
- You will meet the enemy Jungler at top. So you can sit in your top lane's bush and wait for a counter gank (tell him to push) and go on the enemy Jungler or whoever is closest/most vulnerable and burst down.
You can at most blow a flash early game, you'll get a good amount of damage so come back later.
I'll only gank for mid most of the time if 1 of these are here.
- Enemy is over extent: It is easier to kill someone who is in your side of the map.
- Flash is burnt: This means you can use everything on him and you and your mid can take him out.
- Ally mid has some form of CC and is reliable: Kills are easier secured.
- Has a reliable burst combo. : The faster we can kill him the better we can get out of there without the enemy team coming.
Example champions I like to gank for:
Reason: They provide reliable follow-up and crowd control so that I can rely on a for sure kill.
Example champions I don't like to gank for:
These champions are a bit slow on the follow up and do not provide much crowd control.
I'm not saying you shouldn't gank for these champions, but it's a tad hard.
There are champions I really do not like to gank and would rather leave them alone, as they are really hard to kill and basically the only way you can kill them is to make them commit.
Champions I do not like ganking unless escape is burnt.
at Level 6, can spirit rush away.
at Level 6, can Riftwalk away. Pre 6 though easy kill.
can leap away.
is immune to CC.
can warp backwards.
These ganks will simply not be kills unless they have fully committed to a fight.
You can set up a counter gank easily if you see the enemy jungler going to gank mid, inform your mid laner that you are here and you want him to bait something so you can come in and kill the squishiest champ there.
The hardest lane to gank, this lane is probably the trickiest to pull off as everything is warded most of the time and the support has exhaust Q_Q.
But since your a stealth monkey, you can easily gank them.
You can also sneak through lane and kill them like that, and once you get your ultimate it'll be a cake walk.
The final option is to wait for their Jungler to come in and you wait behind your team and for him to initiate and his team to commit to something they do not want to fight. While you come in to counter gank. This option can be a game changer.
TIP: Aim the support, usually the ADC has some form of escape and will get away and sometimes have cleanse which is even harder to kill.
Don't feel like a gank will come out of either lane?
That's fine, just start farming jungle.
first for invades. As it'll output the most damage in a level 1.
Knowing when to dragon is key, remember its every 6 minutes.
Here is a checklist of when to dragon.
- Vision ward on dragon, and pressure on bot/mid.
Here is when not to do dragon.
- You don't have smite and enemy jungler is around.
- Any time it could be an even fight and it'll be a fair fight but dragon will fight you. 4v4/5v5
BARON NASHOR aka Dragon V2 every 7 minutes
- Soloing it, unless you have spectral wraith then go for it.
Your probably want to attempt this when you have some armor or someone else is tanking and are level 11 and its 25+ minutes, and depending on how far ahead you are.
Alright I have a trick for doing Baron Nashor and saying it will probably be exploited and people will probably never fall for it.
If I'm ahead, I'll tell our top to push bot really hard to make the other team chase him, even if he has to die for it. once we see the enemy team heading for him we will start Baron and get a free baron, make sure to bring a vision ward too.
The reason this works is because in solo queue most of peoples' priorties are set on kills, and I play for team objectives. So since an opportunity to get an advantage by killing an over extender, this opens us to do Baron.
Other than my cheese tactic, your going to want to do Baron when:
- The enemy team does not know
- ADC has Bloodthirster/Infinity Edge + Zeal
Yeah I never really counter jungle, I just don't like its high risk high reward play.
The only time I counter jungle is if I'm far ahead, or I know I can take there buffs with team coordination.
Other times I take their blue/red if I see the enemy Jungler far away from his blue/red buff at 7:05 (Which ever he started at.)
Find your enemy jungler, then set up in a place where he will come and you can come kill the enemy jungler or whoever is squishier with your allied laner.
