When it comes to picking what jungler to play, it is important to keep in mind that most of them depend on their Mythic items to push them to the point where they can win their team games. In order to narrow down the choices, here are the top 5 Mythic items for jungle champions to build.
Duskblade of Draktharr
When trying to decide on a Mythic item for a lethality jungler in League of Legends, the big options are Eclipse and Duskblade. However, with the current meta jungle champions, Duskblade of Draktharr is the better option. The reason for this is because it gives junglers like Kha’Zix and Shaco the extra invisibility they need to escape after ambushing a lone champion or getting on top of the enemy backline. Even if the champion doesn’t have any invisibility, the Duskblade can give them the cover they need to make the plays necessary to win their team the game.
For jungle champions that want to make the most of items like Sheen, Divine Sunderer is at the top of the list. While Trinity Force may offer the same Spellblade passive, Divine Sunderer gives champions like Viego and Hecarim an advantage by giving them the extra health they need to survive solo or team fights.
This item also has a Mythic passive of being able to give Legendary items 5% armor and magic penetration. This extra bit of damage can make or break any skirmish these champions may get involved in, making their chances of winning the game much higher.
With the few Mythic items currently available for ability-power-focused junglers, it is important to know which of those are in meta and in what situations they should be picked. For most meta junglers like Diana and Fiddlesticks, Hextech Rocketbelt is the perfect answer.
The Rocketbelt gives the champions that use it a big power boost; not only does it have a good amount of magic penetration to help get past any buffs enemies may have, but it also has a dash that does damage to anything in its path. This dash can be used for helping clear camps, closing the gap on opponents, and picking up a kill that would otherwise be lost.
When picking a Mythic item to build for a tank in the jungle, there are many viable options to choose from. Meta junglers exist as well, so it is important to marry them to the right meta Mythic items. For most of these tank junglers, one of the better items to pick is Sunfire Aegis.
Meta champions like Amumu and Zac can really make the most of this item. Both of them have decent jungle clear, but it is drastically increased by taking Sunfire as opposed to other items. Another benefit to the item is that it makes the user significantly tankier than they would be otherwise, which gives the enemy team a much harder frontline to fight through.
After the nerfs to Stridebreaker, players have been taking Goredrinker instead. Now, champions like Jarvan IV and Xin Zhao have been using this item with great success. With good damage and healthy sustain in its base stats, champions that take this item can have a good advantage over their opponents.
Another advantage this item has is its unique active ability, which allows the user to deal damage to enemies around them as well as heal the user. This gives players an edge over their enemies by being able to heal off of camps and champions alike, meaning that junglers that take this item have much more sustain and damage.
