Having a good Jungler is incredibly important when it comes to winning a League of Legends game. Someone who can farm efficiently and knows when to gank lanes to help secure kills can be crucial, and the difference between a good Jungler and a bad Jungler can make or break a game. While any Jungler can be viable with a skilled player behind the mouse, the meta has allowed certain Jungle units to thrive in Patch 12.12.

Here are the top five best Junglers with the highest win rates as of Patch 12.12, thanks to data from U.GG.

5 Best Junglers in League of Legends Patch 12.12

5. Trundle

Trundle's win rate has gone up slightly since Patch 12.11, and he is still one of the strongest Junglers in the game. Trundle's abilities allow him to steal Health, Magic Resistance and Armor from his opponents, meaning he's benefited greatly from the durability update. He can be built into an absolute tank, making him extremely difficult to kill when played correctly.

4. Mordekaiser

While not typically a Jungler, Mordekaiser has the 4th highest Jungle win rate as of Patch 12.12, at 53.16%. Since Mordekaiser's passive deals damage based on his max HP, and his main Mythic item Riftmaker deals True Damage, the durability patch has served Mordekaiser extremely well.

3. Rammus

The durability update has also worked well in Rammus' favor, giving him much more viability than in previous patches. Increased armor per level thanks to Patch 12.10 has given Rammus more damage as well as durability. While he still struggles against AP comps, Rammus is a great pick against AD heavy teams.

2. Shyvana

With a 53.62% win rate, Shyvana is even more successful in the Jungle than she was last patch. She's an extremely flexible Champion, and is one of the fastest junglers in the game with great clear speed and mobility. She's better at dealing large amounts of close-range damage over time rather than burst damage, making her a great pick in the wake of the durability patch.

1. Volibear

With a win rate of 54%, much like last patch, Volibear has definitely earned his spot as the strongest Jungler once again for League of Legends Patch 12.12. With the additional HP, Armor and MR from the durability patch, Volibear is almost unstoppable on the Rift from the get go, allowing him to secure easy ganks and get the team ahead fast. Volibear has the ability to become a terrifying tank with just a few successful plays early, making him the best Jungler this patch.
