Jungle Nautilus - SBSTP
Hello! For all your fellow League of Legends amateurs this is my jungle Nautilus guide.​
Short Intro
Right now, I would consider Nautilus as "over powered". This big guy has a ton of crowd control. Firstly, his passive makes it that when Nautilus attacks a target, he does bonus damage and stuns the target for a short time. The passive has a short cool down. Secondly, his Q ability is a very long range hook. Nautilus throws his anchor and if he hits a target, the target is pulled towards him. Thirdly, his W ability is a shield which gives him a very high amount of absorption. Additionally, his shield gives him a ton of damage as well as splash damage. This is what allows him to jungle so well. Fourthly, his E ability is an AOE slow which deals decent burst damage. Lastly, his ultimate, R ability, is a knock up which follows the target. You cast it on an enemy and it creates a wave of water which knocks up every enemy it hits until it hits the selected target. Here's the champion spotlight of Nautilus which will show you his abilities way better than I can explain.​
Skill Order
There is not many ways of building Nautilus when jungling. The W is what you want to max. The shield, bonus damage and splash damage is all what you need to jungle. Therefore, I recommend maxing in the following order: W-E-W-Q-W-R-W-E-W-E-R-E-Q-E-Q-R-Q-Q-Q, basically you max W first, then E while putting at least one point in the Q, I recommend at level 4.​
In the Jungle
While mana is not a big need for Nautilus in the jungle, I recommend starting at blue so you can give the blue buff quickly to your mid lane. Basically, you start at wolves at 1:40, then aim for blue buff at 1:54. After, you go for the Wraiths, Double Golems, Red buff and finally Wraiths again. After doing the Wraiths the second time, you should hit the level 4 (if your allies did not steal experience) and be ready to gank, probably mid lane since you are near it.​
** Make sure that your allies damage the wolves at 1:40 at leash the blue at 1:54 **
While being a strong tank, nautilus has a huge damage output. For your starting items, you want to look into

At your first back, you want to get

The rest of the items are depend on what team your opponents have. However, here's a list of items I recommend getting:
This is what I use for runes, there might be better ones though.​
For the masteries, I don't pick anything special, just a normal 9-21-0​

    News portal has been retired. Main page of site goes to Headline News forum now
  • The Helper The Helper:
    I am working on getting access to the old news portal under a different URL for those that would rather use that for news before we get a different news view.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    Easily done
  • The Helper The Helper: is a link to the old news portal - i will integrate it into the interface somewhere when i figure it out
  • Ghan Ghan:
    Need to try something
  • Ghan Ghan:
    Hopefully this won't cause problems.
  • Ghan Ghan:
  • Ghan Ghan:
    I have converted the Headline News forum to an Article type forum. It will now show the top 20 threads with more detail of each thread.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    See how we like that.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    I do not see a way to go past the 1st page of posts on the forum though
  • The Helper The Helper:
    It is OK though for the main page to open up on the forum in the view it was before. As long as the portal has its own URL so it can be viewed that way I do want to try it as a regular forum view for a while
  • Ghan Ghan:
    Yeah I'm not sure what the deal is with the pagination.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    It SHOULD be there so I think it might just be an artifact of having an older style.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    I switched it to a "Standard" article forum. This will show the thread list like normal, but the threads themselves will have the first post set up above the rest of the "comments"
  • The Helper The Helper:
    I don't really get that article forum but I think it is because I have never really seen it used on a multi post thread
  • Ghan Ghan:
    RpNation makes more use of it right now as an example:

    What do you think Tom?
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    I will have to get used to this.
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    The latest news feed looks good
  • The Helper The Helper:
    I would like to see it again like Ghan had it the first time with pagination though - without the pagination that view will not work but with pagination it just might...
