Master Yi got a pretty big nerf this patch, but that likely won't have much of an effect on anyone's games. He's a low elo power jungler who can be stopped with a little bit of crowd control, making him easy to counter. The Xin Zhao nerfs also play more into high elo and pro play, so don't worry about those either.

In this LoL Tier List for Patch 12.5, we show you the best champions for the jungle. We focus on the win rate and carry potential. After all, that's what matters, isn't it? What's going on in the jungle?

Here are some more Tier Lists:

Who Are the Best Junglers in LoL Patch 12.5?

4. Kha'Zix

If you're looking to play a volatile and awful assassin in the jungle, then Kha'Zix is the perfect solo queue pick for you. No one eliminates single targets as easily as he does. Just hide in a bush for 2 seconds, and it's worth it.

This is your last chance to play Kha'Zix before his arch nemesis Rengar is getting a buff and update in Patch 12.6! Seriously, if you want to have fun this patch, then pick up Kha'Zix. With one kill, you'll snowball into one of the best champions in the game.

3. Rek'Sai

Rek'Sai has tunneled her way into everyone's heart. Seriously if you want to have a great time in the jungle, then play Rek'Sai because she can just make her way into any lane for great ganks.

She has been a solid pick throughout the first few months of League of Legends Season 12, and that won't change in Patch 12.5 either. She continues to dominate.

2. Diana

Diana has an insanely fast clear. You won't regret picking her since she's able to do a whole lot of damage. So if you're looking for a powerfarmer that has solid gank potential, look no further than Diana.

In the late game, Diana will also be a key player in any teamfight. Her ultimate can corral multiple champions together and pairing her with the new support Renata Glasc will be the ultimate team killer. GG.

1. Hecarim

Yeehaw! Hecarim is the number one jungler in this patch. Why? Because he's fast, strong and his ganks are superb. Would anyone even dare attack if this race horse rushes towards them at a full gallop? Naw thanks, fam.

Honestly though, Hecarim is one scary champion this patch, and we've seen just how good he can be in pro play. Hecarim has one of the best clears, rushing through the jungle before ending up in a lane, ready to gank them. So, all we can say is adios enemy team, Hecarim has arrived.

Now that we have looked at the S-Tier of LoL Patch 12.5, it's about time that we check out where some of your other favorite champions are. Which of these picks is your main?

Who Are Our A-Tier Junglers?

The A-Tier is still considered extremely good. These are champions that you can easily pick and still win games. They're the ones you'll want to choose when the S-Tier are banned. So if you want to climb solo queue, then these are some picks you'll want to pick up this patch.

ChampionWin RatePick Rate
Shaco50.75%5.90%
Nunu & Willump50.50%3.58%
Graves50.48%16.73%
Elise51.10%4.03%
Kindred50.83%5.43%

Shaco is a menace in the jungle. Not only is he annoying to play against, but he's also extremely strong, which makes him the perfect pick for solo queue. So if you're looking for a jungler that isn't the S-Tier? Look no further than the clown.

Who Are Our B-Tier Junglers?

The B-Tier consists of champions that are good, but won't have as much strength as either the A or S Tier — obviously. These are picks you can select in specific match ups, but we suggest making sure you master the champion before picking them.

ChampionWin RatePick Rate
Warwick51.81%1.71%
Fiddlesticks52.03%1.90%
Poppy50.90%4.12%
Lee Sin48.64%29.67%
Kayn50.04%6.72%
Evelynn50.48%1.64%
Viego48.59%11.88%

Lee Sin is one of the best playmakers in the game. He might not always work, due to him being a do-or-die champion, but it makes him extremely fun to play. Make sure to coordinate with your team when playing him, and you can lift that Lee Sin win rate!

Who Are Our F-Tier Junglers?

Do you even want to win a game? Are you unafraid of losing LP and ending up in Gold IV? Well then, if you want to force your favorite champion, go right ahead, but we do not recommend picking these F-Tier junglers in the current meta unless you're a one trick pony.

ChampionWin RatePick Rate
Gragas48.17%1.3%
Gwen42.88%2.2%
Lillia48.48%2.4%
Olaf46.86%1.1%
Amumu46.77%0.5%

Okay, with the Gwen nerfs in this patch, you'll want to avoid her at all costs in the jungle. Not because she's good and scary, but because she is awful. So, stick to the top lane with Gwen before trying to play her in the jungle, guys.

Hopefully you can get your hands on some of the S and A tier picks off our list. You do want to sport one of those epic new bee skins in the jungle, right? Or, you can try playing Dr. Mundo jungle or main Graves!
