1. Ekko

Ekko has consistently been in the S tier of junglers during Season 10. Not only is he incredibly strong as a jungle champion, but the fact that he brings AP damage to your mix also makes him a valuable pick to have in your arsenal.

Now, his kit is a bit difficult to pilot. You’ll need to learn how to dance in and out of fights with your ult, how to position your Parallel Convergence, and your limits for how much damage you can output. However, Ekko is an incredibly strong champion in all brackets of play.

2. Olaf

Olaf is one of the kings of the early game and in the lower elos of play he can be incredibly oppressive to out-farm and invade the enemy jungler. Setting the opponent jungler behind and outputting more pressure on the map early is an easy way to tilt enemies into wanting to FF at 15 (and this isn’t restricted to lower elos).

Olaf does a surprising amount of damage despite the fact that he is typically built almost full tank. However, that doesn’t mean he can’t build offensive items like Warrior or Black Cleaver. Obviously, his CC immunity also makes him incredibly forgiving if you happen to over-engage a fight.

3. Master Yi

It had to be done. Master Yi is a menace of the lower elos because games typically go much longer, giving Yi more time to scale and build his items. Master Yi’s mere presence puts the other jungler on a timer to either snowball the game before Yi comes online or set Yi too far behind to ever impact the game.

What is most shocking, though, is that Master Yi isn’t just a champion to feast on low elo players. In Platinum and above he’s been consistently A+ tier with over a 50% win rate. This makes him a great jungler to main and climb with.

4. Zac

Probably the best tank jungler in the meta in Season 10, Zac just offers too much CC and easy, long-range engage to pass up. He also has a decent amount of safety in the jungle as players can play around his bloblets. Finally, with his passive giving him a free resurrection to save you if you mess up an engage, Zac will be a solid addition to your jungle roster.

5. Shaco

Dread it, run from it, Shaco arrives all the same. Despite what his mains will tell you, Shaco has been one of the most oppressive junglers in Season 10, consistently A or A+ tier.

What is shocking about Shaco, though, is how his playstyle has changed. Once a champion who was focused on dominating the early game and shutting down the enemy jungler, with his new lethality build Shaco actually scales very well into the late game. He has the fourth-best win rate among junglers in games lasting over 40 minutes because of how good he is at getting picks and split pushing.
