League of Legends Patch 10.23 was one of the biggest patches of the year. With major item reworks, shop appearance, jungle camps adjustment, and some balance changes, it feels like Summoners are learning new game again.

Players are trying to figure out which junglers are the best and the worst. Unfortunately, some champions need to be avoided when queuing on the latest patch.

Here are the five worst junglers in League of Legends Preseason 2021.

5 Worst Junglers in League of Legends Preseason 2021

5. Lillia

Depending on her build, Lillia can be built full AP or AP-tank. There are many reasons why the bashful bloom only has win rate of 45-46% right now. She is countered by Skarner, Nunu and Amumu who are currently A and S-tier junglers. Lillia's lack of ganking almost makes it challenging for her to set up kills for her laners.

4. Nidalee

After gaining popularity during Worlds, LCS, and LCK in the past few months, Nidalee saw herself in the bottom of the list of best junglers. Categorized as farming jungler, she offers little ganking to her laners. Counting on late game is no longer a guaranteed mantra this preseason. Her current win rate is 44-46%.

3. Karthus

As one of the monstrous late game champs, Karthus is pretty challenging to play in Preseason 2021. What usually makes up for his lack of ganking is his massive late game AP damage. With tank junglers dominating top junglers list, they usually have decent damage, cc, and ganking kit. Those are qualities that Karthus is not particularly strong at. Liandry's Anguish's ability to chip away magic resist is not as impactful if Karthus or his team falls significantly behind early game. He currently sits with 43-45% win rate.

2. Lee Sin

Ever since farming or carry junglers became the meta in high elo and numerous pro tournaments, Lee Sin found himself falling out of meta picks. Even the new item Eclipse cannot lift his win rate from 43-44%. At the same time, his jungle counters, Amumu, Nunu, and Rammus, have been dominating thanks to Sunfire Aegis.

1. Rengar

For a champion who stacks lethality items, it is quite surprising to find Rengar at the top of this list with a win rate of 43.3% in high elo games. It is a combination of his counters and also multiple buffs in ADC items. Similar to Lee Sin, Rengar is countered most by Rammus, Sejuani and Amumu. One of Rengar's main responsibilities as an assassin jungler is to eliminate the ADC. With the new items, ADCs are arguably harder to kill. If he fails to assassinate the ADC with all his combo and is stuck in a team fight, Rengar is as good as dead.
