Junglers in LoL Patch 12.18: The Best

Junglers in LoL Patch 12.18: The Best ...

Will we see new junglers in our jungle champion tier list as a result of the jungle changes in LoL Patch 12.18?

This patch included some enhancements/nerfs for a couple jungle champions. Will these alter the jungle meta hugely? No, really. With Worlds just around the corner, there aren't any significant changes right now.

We highlight the best jungle champions in Patch 12.18's thisLoL Tier List. After all, that's what matters, right? What's going on in the jungle?

Here are a few more Tier Lists:

  • Best Supports in the Meta
  • Best Top Laners in the Meta
  • Best Mid Laners in the Meta
  • Best ADCs in the Meta

Who Are the Best Junglers in LoL Patch 12.18?

It's almost October and it's time to declare the Halloween season a hoax. Just in time, Nocturne has risen to the top of the jungle pack and is now one of the best junglers in the patch. Ready to fear your foes to death?

Nocturne is not a difficult champion to play, perhaps I'd go so far as to say he's an easy one to master. If Master Yi is banned (which happens more often than I care to admit), then I'd go for him if you're looking for an easy champ.

Master Yi has been an odd pick in the jungle since he was reworked not too long ago. Riot did nerf him, but he hasn't felt those nerfs in any way, and continues to have one of the highest win rates in the game.

In League of Legends, we also considered how simple it is to pick up a champion. Master Yi is just one of the best and easiest champions to play and anyone can try him out and carry the game.

The Udyr rework was amazing, and I'll be honest with you, I tried it and I didn't like it, but only because I hadn't played Udyr before and didn't even know what I had to do. That's how everyone else knows what they're doing.

So please don't jump into a ranked game thinking that because Udyr is so good, you will be able to carry him. You'll need to learn him first.

Jungle Tier List in League of Legends

Now that we have reviewed the S-Tier of LoL Patch 12.18, it's time that we take a look at some of your other favorite champions. Which one do you prefer the most?

These are the champions you can pick easily and still win games when the S-Tier is banned. They're the ones you'll want to pick up when you go solo.

Skarner is back in meta, which is wonderful. Remember the days when he used to have a RIP picture on op.gg? Gone are these days.

The B-Tier consists of champions that are decent, but who will not have as much strength as either the A or S Tier a. These are picks you can use in specific matches, but we recommend that you master the champion before picking them.

Hecarim received a substantial boost this patch, so we might see his win rate decline a bit, like Kayn's, or rather Rhaast's win rate, but also he was struck with a nerf hammer.

Who Are Our F-Tier Junglers?

Do you even want to win a game? Are you afraid of losing LP and ending up in Gold IV? If you want to beat your favorite champion, go right ahead, but we do not recommend picking these F-Tier junglers in the current meta unless you're a one-trick pony.

Nidalee47.96%2.84%

Lee Sin received a major boost for this patch. The guy infiltrated him desperately. Nidalee may also deserve some love, although I think the reason she's so bad is because players don't know how to play her well.

The World Championship in 2022 is just around the corner. Will there be any weird off-meta surprises this year, or will there be the same old champions we've grown to love?
