This is a list of the 5 best junglers in League of Legends on Patch 10.16

Recently, there have been claims that jungle is one of the least impactful roles in League of Legends as the experience gained from lane minions is too great and is an obstacle for even the best junglers. While that may be true, the current crop of meta junglers shows that players aren’t afraid to carry from the role on Patch 10.16.

Four junglers received buffs on the most recent patch, one of which is present in our top five list. Evelynn’s Hate Spike cooldown was decreased, Hecarim’s Devastating Charge movement speed was increased, Jax’s Counter Strike cooldown was decreased, and Skarner’s Crystal Slash mana cost was decreased.

Here are the 5 best junglers on Patch 10.16:

5) Kayn

51.09% Win Rate | 11.4% Pick Rate | 12.2% Ban Rate

Kayn is unstoppable in solo queue right now.

As Rhaast, he offers unmatched healing and teamfight utility to give his team an advantage around key objectives.

As Shadow Assassin, he can one-shot any carry on the Rift with even the slightest of leads, creating numbers advantages for his team, and snowballing into the mid to late game.

4) Karthus

51.27% Win Rate | 5.0% Pick Rate | 16.4% Ban Rate

Despite being nerfed on Patch 10.16, Karthus continues to offer significant damage output from the jungle in the current meta.

Although your eyes are immediately drawn to Requiem when weighing up Karthus’ strengths, the main factor that separates him from other junglers is his immense clear speed. With this, Karthus can propel himself ahead in both levels and gold early on, reaching level 6 before his opposite number can react.

3) Graves

50.53% Win Rate | 11.2% Pick Rate | 17.3% Ban Rate

Perhaps the most divisive jungler in League of Legends, Graves has maintained his place in the jungle meta once again on Patch 10.16. The Outlaw’s excellent clear speed and dueling potential make him an obnoxious foe for any jungler.

Whether he opts for lethality or a more defensive approach, Graves is a constant threat to your carries and needs dealing with early on in a teamfight. The best course of action is to lock him down with hard crowd control and burst him before he can build up True Grit stacks.

2) Kha’Zix

51.32% Win Rate | 11.6% Pick Rate | 20.0% Ban Rate

Since Taste Their Fear was buffed on Patch 10.14, Kha’Zix has evolved into one of the strongest junglers of the current meta.

While he certainly relies on lethality items to one-shot squishy targets, the Voidreaver’s early game is by no means weak. Taking down single target jungle camps is a breeze and contesting scuttle crabs is an easy task, especially if his laners have priority.

1) Evelynn

52.80% Win Rate | 7.9% Pick Rate | 18.2% Ban Rate

Evelynn has been crowned Queen of the Jungle on Patch 10.16 as she skyrocketed to an incredible 52.80% win rate following her Hate Spike buff. Now, the Agony’s Embrace can instantly take down camps with AoE damage to build an early gold lead and look to impact the map using Allure.

Making the most of Evelynn in teamfights is all about finding a flank and picking the right time to strike. Usually, letting the fight start without you before pouncing on an unsuspecting carry is the best method.
