League of Legends Tier List: The Best Jungle Champions of Patch 11.1

We give our League of Legends aggregated solo queue tier list for Patch 11.1, looking at the best jungler champions!

The start of the ranked season means junglers everywhere getting flamed by their teammates for not ganking or buying a smite upgrade (seriously, guys, read the patch notes). If you’re a jungler looking to carry in Patch 11.1, our tier list of the best jungle champions will help you 1v9!

Our aggregated League of Legends tier list pulled data from ten different sites around the internet to see how they each ranked the top champions in each role in Patch 11.1. From that, we are able to give our average ranking of each champion that was graded or listed in at least half of those tier lists. As always, you can find the link to all the underlying data here.
