properly is step 1. This being said, it should also be noted that Fenrir
is probably the most flexible jungler there is in terms of how he can be built. But in this guide we're talking about Damage Output
. Something that needs to be accepted right off the bat is this:
Fenrir's ability damage falls off Mid-Late game!
Moving Mid into Late game, Fenrir's ability damage mostly becomes incredibly irrelevant and, if anything, makes you an easy target for the other team.
Ability based Fenrir
is obviously fun, anyone who's played Fenrir could probably tell you that. But if you're playing competitively, or against anyone who slightly knows what they're doing at that, you need to convert from ability into an auto-based build.
~ The absolutely necessary starter item for ANY jungler. This item gives extra health and mana, true damage and extra power against jungle camps, and restores health and mana for clearing the camp.
~ Both Bluestone and Death's Toll are completely viable and it is a matter of preference. The way I see it, Bluestone allows for early aggression with the power buff and extra damage, where as Death's Toll allows for better sustain, granting initial lifesteal.
~ The obvious choice of boots for most Physical gods. This item gives decent initial power and the necessary movement speed. Pretty self explanitory.
~ Jottun's Wrath is the perfect item for ability based Assassins, granting additional physical power, CDR, mana, and most importantly, early penetration. This item is crucial to get on Fenrir
right after boots. Some people have argued that Hydra's Lament
might be better to build before, but not in Fenrir
~ As I said before, when you're getting Mid-Late game is when you need to start converting to auto-attacking vs relying on your abilities. When you build this as 3rd item, you're most likely still going to be ability based. But it is important to build this 3rd so you can get the stacks up and be at full potential when you do convert to auto attacks. This is, with almost no doubt about it, the best lifesteal item you can get. Using this combo'd with Seething Howl
, there aren't many gods who will be able to outbox you.
~ Titan's Bane
is pretty self explanatory. Especially because we're going to be selling Jottun's Wrath (we'll get into that in a moment), this item is essential for its percentage penetration.
~ Item #5, you're going to sell Bumba's Mask
for what you choose to purchase here. When you're building auto-attack based, you're going to need something that grants attack speed. While The Executioner
is an acceptable substitute here granting even more percentage penetration on top of Titan's Bane
, I believe Qin's is better because of the strong passive, dealing extra damage equal to 4% of the target's maximum health on every basic attack, as well as the little bit of extra power it has over Executioner.
~ Item #6, you're going to sell your second starter item for what you choose to purchase here. We're at the last item, and most people think of the last item as the item slot that is 100% situational. But in this build, that is not necessarily the case. In this item slot, I strongly recommend a crit item. It will just make your lifesteal go through the roof on top of Devourer's Gauntlet
and Seething Howl
. Any crit item will do fine here, but I like Wind Demon
because it grants even more attack speed on Critical hits, as well as a 20% crit chance.
~ Item #7? ... When you make it to late game, like I said before, your abilities become irrelevant. This means that the Jotunn's Wrath
you bought becomes somewhat useless. You no longer need the CDR, you're maxed out so the mana is unnecessary, and 10 penetration is nothing at this point. THIS is the item slot that is 100% situational and you build whatever you see fit. Sell Jotunn's and build whatever you're missing. More times than not I build Magi's Blessing
because it's more or less a free Purification Beads
, but again, this item slot is 100% situational. If you're ahead you might even consider going more attack speed or penetration (ex. The Executioner
) or maybe even more crit (ex. Deathbringer
