League of Legends Tier List: The Best Junglers on Patch 11.4

The massive jungle gold and experience nerfs have finally arrived on Patch 11.4, much to the chagrin of junglers everywhere. Even after these big changes along with a few middling champion buffs (2 more base health for Amumu!), it didn’t look good for what was considered the strongest role in League of Legends. But the League of Legends tier list for the jungle role hasn’t really changed too much after the changing.

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 11.4. 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 11.4!

Rising Picks

Only one champion, Amumu, rose in the tier list by a significant amount. He improved by a half-tier, the most of any jungler, as a result of the buffs he received.

Falling Picks

The only notable champion who dropped this week was Graves, who fell out of the A tier, likely due to the changes to the jungle meta.

Underrated Picks

The least-picked A tier champion this patch was Ivern at only a 1.3% pick rate.

Overrated Picks

Lee Sin is the most-picked champion in the jungle (as he tends to be) in Platinum and above. Though his 20.67% pick rate is not justified by his B tier rating.

Buffed Champions

Amumu (D tier ⇒ C tier)
Lee Sin (C tier ⇒ B tier)

Nerfed Champions

Skarner (B tier ⇒ B tier)
