Nocturne Jungle Tips and Tricks

  • Nocturne is a great champion for climbing in SoloQ because of his incredibly strong spell kit which allows him to duel most enemy junglers, invade and gank as early as he reaches level three. He doesn't really have many weaknesses other than a well coordinated enemy team.
  • Umbra Blades and Duskbringer allow Nocturne to farm jungle camps with ease while being an ever-present threat to all enemy lanes due to Paranoia. Even if you're not in range to dash towards an enemy with Paranoia, it can still be worth to cast it in order to obstruct an enemy's vision and make them panic. This can help your teammates to pick off a target, or run away if they're in immediate danger.
  • Duskbringer's path grants bonus movement speed which can come in handy when you're chasing, or running from enemies. It also grants a substantial amount of bonus attack damage which increases Nocturne's damage to Turrets.
  • The proper use of Shroud of Darkness can turn fights in your favor because it can be used to block a dangerous spell which could finish you off or cause a lot of CC.

Master Nocturne Jungle Clear

Pro Nocturne Jungle Path —full clear with a Red Buff start 

  • The Pro Nocturne Jungle Path features a full jungle clear with a Red Buff start. The Nocturne player unlocks Duskbringer for his first ability as it deals considerable amounts of damage and boosts Nocturne's attack damage as long as he stands on the dusk path. As Nocturne reaches level two, pro players tend to unlock Shroud of Darkness because it gives Nocturne a lot of bonus passive attack speed and they path towards the Krugs camp. Once Krugs are dead, the Raptors camp is next and it grants Nocturne level three— unlocking Unspeakable Horror, his third skill. At this point the Nocturne is a force to be reckoned with and will win most duels. Pathing to the Blue Buff side allows the player to clear Murk Wolves, the Blue Sentinel and Gromp which grant him level four. Lastly, Nocturne has to kill rift Scuttler the get the full clear done and it usually is not a problem as his clear speed is very quick, allowing him to be in time for the rift Scuttler spawn.
  • This Nocturne Jungle Clear is currently the most popular Nocturne route because it ends at the river side with the outmost priority, allowing the player to gain vision over the Scuttler and ambush the enemy jungler if they facecheck the river brush.

Jungle Route Summary

Beginner Nocturne Jungle Path —six camp clear with a Red Buff start 

  • The Beginner Nocturne Jungle Path is perfect for players which aren't experienced in the most optimal jungle clearing tactics such as— pulling camp aggro as far as possible and finishing monsters with the jungle item's passive burn. This route starts with Nocturne on Red Buff and him unlocking the Duskbringer skill. At level two, when the Red Buff is dead, the Nocturne player unlocks Shroud of Darkness & clears the Raptors camp. After doing those, the Blue Buff side: Murk Wolves, Blue Sentinel and Gromp are next. This places the Nocturne on level three, allowing him to unlock Unspeakable Horror. Having Unspeakable Horror and clearing these camps allows him to move onto the Rift Scuttler and after the Nocturne kills the Scuttler he can rotate into a gank onto one of the lanes connected with the river.
  • This Nocturne Jungle Clear reaches the Scuttler on time even with no clear speed min-maxing, making it perfect for any beginner who wants to get better at Jungle Nocturne.

Jungle Route Summary

Nocturne Jungle Path —full clear with a Blue Buff start

  • This Nocturne Jungle Path is a full clear with a start on the Blue Sentinel. You will once again start with Duskbringer for your first ability. With the Blue Sentinel dead, you'll unlock the Shroud of Darkness at level two and kill the Gromp & Murk Wolves. This grants you level three, allowing you to level up Unspeakable Horror & start moving towards the Red Buff side of the map. There you'll kill the Raptors, Red Buff and Krugs (in this particular order). Doing so will level you up to level four and that's when you start pathing towards the rift Scuttler on that side. Depending on your clear speed, you might be late to the Scuttler which might result in a Scuttler fight with the enemy jungler. In some cases the Rift Scuttler might already be dead, at this point you can gank the middle lane and path towards the opposite Rift Scuttler instead. 
  • This Nocturne Jungle Clear is an alternative to the pro jg route, and which one you pick will primarily depend on the jungle matchup & which of your allies have lane priority.
