There was no bigger change to the jungle pool on our League of Legends tier list than the addition of the newest champion, Viego. Still, Patch 11.2 also featured some other jungle changes, including nerfs to Elise and a buff to Nocturne. We’ll see how those changes are reflected in the tier list.

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 11.2. 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.

Let’s dive deeper into the League of Legends tier list for jungle in Patch 11.2!

New Champion

Viego has hit the jungle meta in Patch 11.2 and the reception has been mixed to terrible. A couple of sites rated Viego in the high-C or low-B tier, but four of the ten sites we audited did not rank Viego at all. While that drags down his rating quite a bit, I don’t think he peaks above high-D tier this patch.

Rising Picks

Just like I predicted in the patch notes breakdownDr. Mundo had the biggest rise of any jungler on the tier list this patch, going from the low-D tier to the C tier. Trundle and Pantheon also had massive improvements to their rankings, while Nocturne took a significant boost following the buffs he got this patch.

Falling Picks

Volibear took the biggest drop in Patch 11.2, dropping down to the D tier. Two other champions, Nunu & Wilump and Jax both fell down significantly this patch.

Underrated Picks

With only a 1.9% pick rate, Rammus is the most underrated jungler this patch.

Overrated Picks

Surprise, surprise, but the most-picked jungler Lee Sin, is once again the overrated jungler of the patch, due to being rated in our B tier.

Buffed Champions

Dr. Mundo (D tier ⇒ C tier)
Nocturne (C tier ⇒ B tier)
Shaco (B tier ⇒ B tier)
Trundle (D tier ⇒ C tier)
