Here are the five best junglers in League of Legends Patch 12.13.

Jungle is one of the most unique roles you can play in League of Legends. Rather than sticking to one lane, your job is farm, traverse the map, and provide support for your teammates whenever they need it to help keep your team ahead. Playing jungle well requires good map awareness, technical skill, and timing. While any jungle champion can be strong when played well, the meta of Patch 12.13 has allowed certain champions to be especially strong this patch. Here are the five best junglers in League of Legends Patch 12.13, according to win rate data from U.GG.

5 Best Junglers in League of Legends Patch 12.13

5. Trundle

Trundle has been an S-tier jungler for the past several patches, and 12.13 is no exception. His ability to steal Health, Magic Resistance, and Armor from his opponents has made him incredibly strong post the durability update, making him a consistently good pick against a variety of team compositions.

4. Mordekaiser

Just like Patch 12.12, Mordekaiser sits with the 4th highest Jungle win rate, at 52.91%. While typically played as a top laner, Mordekaiser's passive deals damage based on his max HP, which has made him extremely strong since Patch 12.10. Additionally, since his main Mythic item Riftmaker deals True Damage, it's remained a strong item even with the increased armor and resistance most Champions got during Patch 12.10.

3. Amumu

In Patch 12.12, Amumu received a buff that decreased the mana cost of his Q significantly, as well as increased the damage dealt by his R. While this buff sought to make him more viable as a support unit again, it also made him a much more popular pick in the jungle again, and for good reason. Since tank units have been so strong since Patch 12.10, it makes sense that Amumu is sitting comfortably with a 53% win rate.

2. Rammus

Rammus win rate has increased since Patch 12.12, with a current win rate of 53.08%. Rammus is one of the best junglers to pick against AD heavy teams, thanks to the armor buffs he got during Patch 12.10. While he can struggle against mages, Rammus can be built into an extremely strong tank, making him an incredibly strong Jungle unit this patch.

1. Shyvana

Shyvana's win rate has only been increasing in recent patches, and she currently has the highest win rate in the jungle at 53.36%. With incredibly fast clear speed and mobility, Shyvana is one of the quickest junglers in the game, which has paired extremely well with all the strong speed-focused units being released to the game like Nilah and Zeri. Since Shyvana focuses on dealing large amounts of damage over time rather than burst damage, she wasn't impacted heavily by the durability patch, making her the strongest choice as of Patch 12.13.
