The hit to Bami Cinder and Sunfire Aegis this patch hasn’t affected tanks in the jungle role much: With Kayn getting a direct nerf, jungle-clearing-tanks are even stronger than they were before in Patch 10.25.
In this LoL tier list, we show you the best champions for each lane in patch 10.25. We especially focus on the win rate and the carry potential, because often you will have to carry your teammates in any given game. Today, we will take a look at the jungle.
Not a jungler? Here are more LoL champion tier lists:
- Top 5 Strongest Mid Laners in LoL Patch 10.25
- Top 5 Strongest Supports in LoL Patch 10.25
- Top 5 Strongest ADCs in LoL Patch 10.25
Which Champions Are Strongest in the Jungle in Patch 10.25?
5. Skarner (Win Rate: 53.7%)
Even though Skarner is one of the least played champions, we do think he is somewhat of a sleeper pick. Since jungle items are taken out of the game, he can now build Turbo Chemtank and rush right at immobile opponents. His W shield adds some extra protection when clearing the jungle and once he has his ultimate up, he can consistently gank.
4. Graves (Win Rate: 49.4%)
Graves is always a solid pickup, thanks to his unique kit. He can either be played as a sustain bruiser or be used as a burst damage jungler. His dash gives him mobility with which he can go into a gank or quickly get out, if the enemy jungler also shows up. Overall, Graves is a solid pickup this patch and you can do some serious damage with him.

3. Hecarim (Win Rate: 51.1%)
Hecarim has been hit with some nerfs over the last few patches, but that hasn’t slowed him down too much. His quick clear is unmatched and he has some of the best ganking opportunities in the game. Once Hecarim has power farmed up and gotten enough gold for his first Item, he becomes an unstoppable champion who can snowball even the slightest of leads in his favor. For anyone who enjoys fast gameplay, pick him up and add Ghost to watch him soar through the Rift.

2. Kha’Zix (Win Rate: 52.6%)
Kha’Zix is one of the best assassin junglers in the game. He can kill just about any isolated target. It is important to make sure that Kha’Zix’ targets are alone when he goes in for the kill, otherwise, the gank might not work out in his favor. Once he has a kill or two under his belt, he snowballs into a carry like no other jungler.
Kha’Zix does a ton of damage, especially in the late game. His jungle clear is also great, and he can steal objectives thanks to his mobility. His only downside is that he lacks any cc to his kit, but that can easily be made up by picking a hard cc support champion into your team composition. Overall Kha’Zix is an aggressive and fun jungler for those who want to assassinate the opponent.
1. Nunu & Willump (Win Rate: 53.9%)
Nunu's passive and his E give him almost constant AoE damage, which lets him clear the jungle extremely fast. His Q keeps his HP almost full at all times and his W is one of the most annoying, yet effective, ganking tools available for any jungler. The only thing Nunu has to watch out for is not letting go of his snowball too soon and have it crash into minions, since they can block it.
What makes him such a strong pick in the jungle though is his ability to secure objectives. No Smite-fight should be lost when he times his Q with his own Smite. Dragons can be taken from the moment they spawn, thanks to Nunu’s health as well as strength. He is a reliable and easy to play jungler who can really get the ball rolling (pun intended).
