League of Legends Patch 11.5 is bringing some interesting changes that will hopefully revive the Jungle role. In the current meta, we've seen junglers take a backseat to solo laners in Riot's attempt to facilitate more gank-oriented gameplay. Although players won't see a change to jungle mobs like in 11.4, a few item buffs look to spice things up a bit.

Here's the list of the five best junglers in League of Legends Patch 11.5:

5 Best Junglers in League of Legends Patch 11.5

Rek'sai

In this new meta the best junglers have to be able to clear quickly in the early game and gank effectively, Rek'sai is one of the best at both. Her damage is solid and performs as a great tank in the late game. The new Serpent's Fang upgrades will allow her to burst down shielded low health characters in the early and mid game making her a formidable pick for any jungler.

Hecarim

Hecarim will benefit a ton from the new Black Cleaver buff with the added movement speed for each stack of Carve. With his passive he'll do big damage to enemy champions making him a nightmare for the opposing team.

Master Yi

Master Yi was already a terror but with the additional damage to his Wuju Style (E) he's only become scarier for enemy teams. He's one of the most picked champions in ranked and has a solid 50% win rate, moving forward players can expect to see more of him in the future.

Skarner

Although Skarner received a nerf in 11.4 this champion still remains among the top junglers in the game. With solid wave clear and the threat of singling out enemy champions with his Impale (R) Skarner goes into 11.5 as one of the best picks for any jungler.

Kayn

By looking at Kayn's win rate in ranked you wouldn't believe it but he recieves a lot of looks from players, possibly because he's started to gain some traction in competitive play. Kayn is going to be receiving some love in Patch 11.5 with buffs to Muramana and Serpent's Fang that will allow him to quickly burst enemy shields and do big damage with his abilities.
