The Jungle has been under fire from Riot for a few patches already, and this patch 10.21 has also seen some changes. How they look like and which champions make it to our top 5 list, you can see here!
In this LoL tier list, we show you the best champions for each lane. We focus on the win rate and the carry potential, because in some games you often have to carry your teammates to victory. Today we take a look at the junglers.

5. Ekko (Win Rate: 50.4%)
Ekko is so fun to play! He is a very mobile champ, who shows unbelievable mobility with his E - Phase Dive and his passives and who can easily engage in fights. He can also take off again when things get tricky.
His ultimate - Chronobreak is another movement tool in your kit and can also be used for stealing objectives. It's easy to do because you can teleport out of the situation unharmed and heal yourself at the same time.
From Level 6 on, Ekko gets a strong power spike and can easily burst enemies down. You are a powerful player if you manage to be in the lead. Ekko's weakness lies in the early game when he can be punished for mistakes.
You should get Stalker's Blade as soon as possible and work towards the Hextech Protobelt-01 - these items give you extra sustain and a little more movement.
4. Master Yi (Win Rate: 51.0%)
Master Yi offers you fantastic mobility thanks to his Q - Alpha Strike and his ultimate - Highlander. He actually has the highest basic movement speed in the game, which makes him a very good hunter.
His kit allows him to clear monster camps quickly and cleanly, as Alpha Strike marks four enemies that he instantly attacks. In the meantime, he is not targetable, which can save your life. His passive causes every auto-attack to reduce the cooldown of Alpha Strike by 1 second.
With the true damage buff of his E - Wuju Style, you can mow down even tank champions. His skills ensure that Master Yi is strong in the early game (especially from level 3 onwards) and he has the potential to become a hyper-carry in the late game as well. You can do this by going for crit or on-hit builds.
For this, you should get items like Guinsoo's Rageblade, Skirmisher's Sabre, and Bloodrazor. If your W (Meditate) is on cooldown, Master Yi can't take a lot of damage, so watch out.
3. Hecarim (Win Rate: 51.7%)
Hecarim has such good mobility that with the right items he can become the fastest champ in the game. That is exactly what you should aim for. An AD Hecarim that relies on movement speed is not only really fast, but also really strong - and all thanks to his passive - Warpath. This ensures that you get 15%-30% (depending on the level) of his bonus movement speed as attack damage.
Get the summoner spells Ignite or Ghost and Smite and you'll really get into it. Some of the items you might be interested in are Trinity Force, Skirmisher's Sabre, and Sterak's Gage. With these items, you can push your movement speed and your damage quite a lot. Note that with that build you'll be basically a glass cannon.
2. Kha'Zix (Win Rate: 52.2%)
Kha'Zix offers you mobility, burst damage, and a lot of potential! With the right build, you can one-shot enemy carries and have a huge impact on the course of the game. Kha'Zix is especially strong in the late game, which means you can't fall behind, or it will be hard to get back in.
To prevent his weakness against CC skills you should get items like Edge of Night and Mercury's Threads. Otherwise, you should really go for Lethality damage and upgrades like Duskblade of Drakharr and Youmuu's Ghostblade.
The best synergy is between Kha'Zix and Yuumi, as the Magic Cat gives you the peel and support you need to survive while dealing burst damage. That's why champs like Elise are also strong counters against Kha'Zix, as she can dodge his strongest skill Leap (E) through her spider form.
1. Kayn (Win Rate: 51.8%)
If you are looking for a unique champ, you have found him in Kayn. He offers you mobility, an ultimate during which you cannot be attacked, and a kit that helps you support your teammates perfectly. Kayn even goes so far that you will have to work with him towards his second form to fit into the team composition for better synergy. The two transformations are completely different from each other, which means that the items you have to get are also different.
The first form is his Shadow Assassin, and as you can tell from the name, you take on the role of an assassin and go for Lethality damage with items like Stalker's Blade. You'll want this form if you see that the opposing team is mostly champs who are less resilient. You can easily shred them.
You take the transformation to Rhaast if the opponent team has several tanks or a lot of CCs to offer. You will then be able to take more damage and have good CC yourself to support your teammates.
You want to get items like Black Cleaver and Skirmisher's Sabre here. One core item you always need is Duskblade of Drakharr. It works perfectly with Kayns ultimate.
