Nasus jungle has been the flavor of the month pick since the changes in Patch 9.1 gave him 12 stacks for every large jungle monster killed with his Q. He’s made the tier list, but only scraping the bottom due to the fact that most of the professional tier lists didn’t include him. This caused him to have a large spread in opinion, but those sites based on data do rate him very highly, indicating that popular opinion hasn’t caught up to just how powerful a pick he might be.

The other big power pick that emerged in Patch 9.1 is Sejuani, who rose from D tier all the way to B tier after the recent buffs. In addition, we’ve seen Aatrox jungle start to rise in popularity, but like Nasus he was not included in most of the professionally-made tier lists.

One champion who fell in the ranks was Kayn, who dropped out of the A tier completely despite no significant balance changes to him. With the rumored coming changes in the next patch that will hurt his ability to farm for XP as efficiently, Kayn might be dropping heavily in terms of effectiveness.
