Though I love playing defensively, inheritely i need to learn how to play hypercarries in the Jungle. You’ve all seen the highly ranked replays. Carries who build 100% damage and nothing else. Carries who only build a little survivability to eek out that extra damage by staying up a little longer.
I’ve realized something. Damage is king. It allows you to clear faster, getting back to ganking. It allows you to dominate the early to mid game, by one-shotting squishies. It allows you to set the tempo of the game, by getting a few kills. It allows you to clear objectives faster.
That having been said, I’ll wuss out sometimes and play a tank in the Jungle. Or a bruiser hybrid, who also builds defensive or hybrid items with defensive stats on them.
Hypercarries are hard. But once you learn them, and focus on damage or DPS, you’ll be a literal monster at this game.
DOn’t wuss out. Pick characters who compliment building items for maximum damage.
Here’s my favorite ‘hypercarries’ which I build damage on:
I’ve also recently added:
Wukong (exotic pick)
As an ‘exotic pick’. I build blade of the ruined king second on him. Because of his clone W, which is now also a dash, and they also buffed his ultimate R, which can now be cast twice, and they also buffed his Q, attacks from minions now reduce it’s cooldown, In general he’s not a bad jungler.
But you know who I want to really jungle with and troll a few games? Predator Darius. Maybe my offrole should be top lane. I like many of the top lane champions. Another exotic pick I play as a tank in the jungle, who’s usually a top laner, is Dr. Mundo. Or Mordekaiser, even. You see I used to like playing tanks in the Jungle. No wonder i’ve been bronze or iron every season. I never really learned how to maximize damage and carry.
