Jungle-Creeps.jpg

      The Jungle refers to any area of the map that is not a lane or part of either team's base, including the river that divides it. Junglers rely on killing neutral mobs in the jungle to keep up with their laning teammates in terms of gold and experience. In a standard 5-on-5 game of Mobile Legends, 4 players on a team will be Laners, and 1 player will be a designated Jungler. Jungle Creeps are exclusively showcased in the Imperial Sanctuary Map. Jungle creeps are very strong in the early game and thus a jungler is needed to clear them efficiently. The team shares the jungle from the top and bottom areas. Some heroes are more suitable to Jungling than others, especially Assassin Assassin Icon.png and Fighter Fighter Icon.png, due to their ability to deal a large amount of damage early game to clear jungle camps and/or to gank lanes quickly in the early game.

      The purpose of the jungle is to gain buffs such as the Purple Buff, the Orange Buff, the Gold Buff, etc. The monsters are scattered throughout the jungle area in order for you to kill in return for gold, exp and various bonuses without interfering with your team's lane minions. At the beginning of the match, the monsters and the Cyclone Eye are spawned at different periods. A jungler with the battle spell Retribution and Jungling Equipment is significantly faster at Jungling than other heroes. There are several types of buffs given by killing specific jungle creeps. These include the Purple Buff, the Orange Buff, the Gold Buff, Walkie Grass. Killing the Turtle or the Lord will give a certain amount of gold and exp to the side that kills it. The Turtle also gives a shield to the hero that killed it which increases their Physical Attack and Magic Power. Magic Power is increased more than Physical Attack. When the Lord is killed, he will be summoned from the side that killed it. The Lord will charge down the lane with the least amount of turrets or turret HP and attack anything in its way, while enhancing the minion waves on all three lanes. After the 12 minutes mark, the Lord will turn into a Luminous Lord which gains the ability to use a charging skill on the first turret it encounters, dealing true damage and disabling the turret for a few seconds.

Jungling Tips

Jungling is a reference, to when you leave the lane, stay in the jungle to level up and help your teammates by doing occasional surprise attacks, during group fights. The basic idea here is that your team will be relying on you for game ganking. You should always be on the move, clearing jungle camps after camp and looking for opportunities to gank. Constantly check the minimap and try to camp at the lane nearest to the current objective to secure it more easily.

As a ganker and jungler, it is imminent to never reveal your location. Going near to an opposition lane or using your skills on minions, will reveal your location to the enemy. So, it is always advised, that you should always stay in the shadows and work your business, only from there. Try to anticipate the enemy's movements and plan your attack strategy, accordingly. However, keep an eye on the enemy jungler and keep your team updated about his/her activities. Even when there are enemy heroes near your tower, the only thing preventing them from taking offense on your tower is the thought that there might be a hidden ganker, who might jump on them, at any moment. So, being stealthy and letting the enemy walk into the trap, is highly necessary and advantageous.

Another task as a jungler, for you, is to slay the monsters and get buffs for both your team and yourself. Slaying the Lord or Turtle can grant epic buffs for the entire team. Target for last hits on the monsters with Retribution. It is important for you to have a thorough knowledge of the complete map so that you don't have to spend needless time, exploring and finding monster spawning places. Use the in-game pings to communicate with allies quickly to gank, group up for an objective or to retreat if you cannot help them at the moment.

One last thing you should keep in mind is that, as a jungler, you will level up and farm much faster in the jungle. So try to give the lane minions to your teammates, since it is their only source of earning gold and leveling up.
