Hey summoners! Season is wrapping up and last changes for 12.21 aren’t really going to change much of the Solo Q meta, besides Bel’Veth nerfs and Ahri buffs, and in preparation for your last push of the season we’re gonna give you the Five Best Jungle for Low Elo to Climb in LoL 12.20
Besides knowing which are the best champions, you need to know about the optimal runes/items and how they fit your current ranked lobby or game plan. For that, you can check our SenpAI champion page to look at the information like their best runes, items, and even tips to level up your game.
5 Jungle Low Elo picks to climb in League of Legends Patch 12.20
Disclaimer: The info for this top was based on the SenpAI data for champions. It collects data from all regions.
Although the Scorn of the Moon has been nerfed in many patches, directly or indirectly (Sunfire Cape nerf), she’s still a really strong champion. Diana scales well , provides great engage, powerful dueling, strong splitpush threat, and overall a solid pick. Making it our 5th pick Jungle for low elo in lol patch 12.20.
After reading all her strength you may say, Why is she number 5th? Well, while she has many good points, you wouldn’t call her broken by any means. If you play Diana well you are gonna net wins, but, she’s not gonna explode games like a Bel’Veth or a Nocturne may do.
Nevertheless, we strongly recommended her especially in low elo, and if you aren’t very experienced in the jungle. A good Crescent Moon (R) engage is still gonna win important teamfights for your team.
For the end of the season, an easy and reliable champ like Diana may be your best bet.
The Eternal Nightmare has flown low under the radar for many players, but he’s a pretty solid pick. Even more in the low elo bracket of play, where not everyone knows how to play around his Paranoia (R), especially side laners.
Nocturne’s Unspeakable horror (E) it’s a really obnoxious spell for enemies, the fear it’s a really strong form of CC although you need to be in range to use it.
As of right now Nocturne is in a pretty good spot, with prevalence of spellbased champs in the jungle, Nocturne’s Shroud of Darkness (W) allows him to negate key abilities, leading him to have strong 1v1s.
The key when playing Nocturne is having an opportunistic mindset, probably what will make struggle when learning him is the timing of your ults, but, once you master that aspect it’s quite a simple but very effective champion.
Specialist of taking down carries, and isolating them from fights. His main drawback is that when put behind he can feel pretty useless, and he doesn’t fit all comps. But, as of right now, he’s a pretty solid pick to rise rankings in short amount of time.
Despite her poor showings last week in worlds (RIP JDG). In Jungle LoL Solo Que, the Empress of the Void is a different beast.
Remember when we talked about reset champions in Katarina, well, imagine that 2x as good, while being more reliable and having more ways to survive fights… Well that’s kind of what is Bel’Veth. Taking the spot that once belonged to Master Yi, Bel’Veth is the go-to pick when choosing a hyper carry jungler.
Her infinity scaling thanks to her Death Lavender (passive) and her reset capabilities with Endless Banquet (R) makes her a menace in every fight as long as she gets that first kill.
And here’s when we talk a little about her cons. She has great damage but needs to not be shutdown with cc to have time to DPS, and do her magic.
But, unlike Katarina who only has her Shunpo to get out of sticky situations (And Zhonya’s if built), Bel’Veth has many ways to navigate enemy crowd control, and even bait them out. She does it with her Void Surge (Q) dashes, mitigates upcoming burst with Royal Maelstrom (E), and even has her own form of CC to initiate fights and disengage in Above and Below (W)
To play her you need to easy up on the early game, just like any hyper carry jungler, but once you have an item or two you can start your rampage. Also, remember to take Herald and Baron every opportunity you have.
What makes Bel’Veth good also makes her a pretty hard champion to learn at first. Therefore, you’ll need to invest in a fair amount of games before dominating with the Empress of the Void.
To begin her journey, this is our Bel’Veth recommended build.
As one of our tanks in the last two spots, The Fury of the North is in a great position holding a 54,39% win rate. Sejuani is an amazing tank jungler right now, after nerfs to strong tank junglers like Maokai, its one of the best pick in Jungle for LoL patch 12.20.
Sejuani is having great success thanks to how reliable she is. The tankiness thanks to her Fury of the North passive, and with her Permafrost (E) passive and stun active makes her obnoxious to deal with. Sejuani is that champ that you cannot disengage from, she uses her Artic Assault (Q) and chases with her CC until you are down.
While the Fury of the North is in a great state, you need to know she works more as a facilitator, even if she has indeed an unsurprising amount of damage for a tank.
Although her kit looks simple, you’ll need to learn to nail your skillshots like Glacial Prison (Ultimate that throws an ice bola and stun enemies), and Winter’s Wrath (W)
Champions like Sejuani terrorize low elo because how important is to have direction, especially in teamfights, and there’s nothing more that shouts fight that a Sejuani throwing her ultimate and stunning a target. Her drawback, she can be quite easily kiteable, but in this bracket it is hard to see the enemy’s team doing it.
Our dominant pick and first pick of this list goes to Rammus. Since changes in 12.20 there are not many junglers that can stop this armordillo.
The Defensive Ball Curl (W) changes and Soaring Slam (Ultimate) changes just improve his movement by a bit, but that’s all it was needed to make Rammus so strong that he right now holds a 55,78 % win rate.
When you are playing Rammus you must understand that your capacity farming the jungle is not as strong as, for example, Bel’Veth or Fiddlestick. Yet, his ganking power is way too over the top, especially in low elo when players don’t respect his strength.
You may see him listed as a tank, but don’t be fooled, Rammus packs a lot of damage, and without his W slow, he’s going to land more auto attacks hence do more DPS than you think. Really, is a no brainer not opt to pick Rammus in this meta, especially when time is lacking
In LoL, Jungle is one of the more powerful roles in Solo Que, you have the power to influence early game. For that reason, if you are trying to get that little push over the edge to get your end season goal, picking the best jungler champions are going to help you with that.
Hope you find useful this list, and well, pick Rammus he’s really strong and easy. Wishing you a good luck in last weeks of the season.
Evelynn – She may not have the big Win rate numbers but in Solo Que she’s already terrorizing a lot of Elo brackets including the highest one.
Ekko – Change in last patch made Ekko a power house, so even tho he’s not in the list expect him to show on your games, so you don’t get impressed
