Jungle is one of the most important positions is League of Legends. Junglers must be able to keep track of everything happening on the map, while still farming and taking objectives. The best junglers can clear their camps quickly and gank lanes easily. With that in mind, here's your League of Legends Patch 11.3 Jungle tier list.

S Tier

Olaf, Taliyah, and Elise are the king and queens of the jungle. All three can quickly traverse the map and clear their camps. They all have abilities that make ganking lanes very easy. On top of that, the damage they can put out is massive, especially in fights around objectives. Some items for these champions were nerfed. However, it's not enough to make these three fall from the highest rank.

A Tier

Udyr, Pantheon, Hecarim, Nidalee, and Karthus all make their presence known in A Tier. Similar to S Tier, these champions can traverse the map quickly and eliminate camps easily. However, a few aspects hold them back from being A tier. Udyr received a nerf this patch. Between his overall damage being less strong and his item build giving him less armor, Udyr can't keep pace with Olaf. Pantheon can gank easily, but his camp clear isn't that fast. Hecarim relies on speed and can be a tank of a jungler. However, Hecarim is either all in or nothing on ganks. This makes him very volatile, especially in the early game. Nidalee and Karthus both struggle from not having a lot of health. If they fall behind early, it's hard for them to catch back up.

B Tier

Lilila, Graves, Ivern, Fiddlesticks, and Evelynn are all strong jungle picks. The biggest problem with this tier is their survivability. Lillia, Evelynn, Fiddlesticks, and Graves are all fairly squishy and don't build a lot of armor. If they miss their ability to jump into a fight, they'll likely have to burn a spell-like Flash to get out. Ivern is probably the strangest jungler in the game, since Ivern can't actually attack jungle camps. However, his ability to share buffs with allies keeps him in a higher tier. Graves sees a lot of attention in professional play,

C Tier

Viego, Kindred, Willump & Nunu, Lee Sin, Rammus all find themselves a little lower on the tier list. While Viego's ability to jungle is good, his passive of possessing fallen enemy champions actually can be a hindrance in the early game. Possessing an enemy champion likely means that Viego can't farm camps as quickly as he normally could. The rest of these champions each struggle in two cases. First, they farm slower than their high tier counterparts. Secondly, outside of their one ability to impact team fights, they don't have much else to offer.
