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.

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. Unlock Duskbringer for his first ability as it deals considerable amounts of damage and boosts Nocturne's attack damage as long as you stand on the dusk path. As you reach level two, unlock Shroud of Darkness because it gives Nocturne a lot of bonus passive attack speed and path towards the Krugs camp. Once Krugs are dead, the Raptors camp is next and it grants you 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 now allows you to clear Murk Wolves, the Blue Sentinel and Gromp which grant you level four so upgrade Duskbringer. Lastly, kill Rift Scuttler and then rotate into a gank or steal enemy jungler's camps in order to gain as much XP as possible.
  • This Nocturne Jungle Clear is currently the most popular Nocturne route on the Red Team because it paths towards bottom lane, but it's great on Blue Team as well due to early Void Grubs.

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— upgrade Duskbringer and that's when you start pathing towards the Rift Scuttler on that side. 
  • 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.
