The Jungle meta has drastically changed after a large set of system nerfs in Patch 11.21. Several AP skirmishers have risen to prominence after being ignored for months. So which champs should you pick to climb with Jungle in LoL Patch 11.21? Find out in our Mid-Patch Jungle Tier List!
Unfortunately for our friend Fiddlesticks, it's reign of terror only lasted a brief period of time in high elo across the world. Fiddlesticks is still a viable choice, but several other champions are just outperforming it in Patch 11.21. Surprisingly, Poppy has journeyed her way to A tier after multiple performances at Worlds 2021. It's also notable that the Goredrinking Assasins: Qiyana and Talon have severely dropped in win-rate as well as pick-rate. We just wish it happened sooner, as LP is hard to regain!
Who Are Our S-Tier Junglers in LoL Patch 11.21?
These champions are the most dominant Junglers in high elo solo queue across the world. If you can pick up a few of these champs, nothing will stop you on your way to Challenger! Our S-Tier picks of LoL Patch 11.21 are:
- Graves - Win Rate: 52.10%, Pick Rate: 19.61%
- Elise - Win Rate: 51.54%, Pick Rate: 6.97%
- Nidalee - Win Rate: 49.84%, Pick Rate: 12.44%
- Ekko - Win Rate: 50.57%, Pick Rate: 11.49%
The S Tier Junglers in high elo KR server solo queue are sporting some absolutely ridiculous pick rates! Graves, Nidalee, and Ekko have all become the standard go-to picks in Korea. Graves is always in and out of meta for his versatile kit, hyper-scaling, and early game dominance. Ekko is a little too strong off of recent buffs so he's being abused. As for Nidalee, she's a fantastic answer to these other champions because of her ability to match powerful early game champions and win skirmishes.

Who Are Our A-Tier Junglers in LoL Patch 11.21?
These particular champions fall just below our idea of S Tier in the Jungle. They're still all extremely competitive in the current meta and completely viable to play. Don't worry, you won't be trolling if you play these guys!
- Poppy - Win Rate: 51.54%, Pick Rate: 6.26%
- Shaco - Win Rate: 51.40%, Pick Rate: 4.21%
- Kha'Zix - Win Rate: 52.15%, Pick Rate: 5.40%
- Lee Sin - Win Rate: 47.49%, Pick Rate: 25.58%
- Kayn - Win Rate: 49.56%, Pick Rate: 6.34%
So obviously one of these champions is a huge outlier in both winrate and pick rate. Lee Sin is still being valued a ton with a 25.58% pick rate, that means he's in a 4th of all games! He isn't strong enough to perma-ban out, but players still feel he's great in many situations. Poppy is a new addition to this list after being played at worlds, as was mentioned earlier. She's gained a ton of popularity, have you seen this yordle in the Jungle?
Who Are Our D-Tier Junglers in LoL Patch 11.21?
Now for the worst of the worst in Patch 11.21. These group of champions just stink, you shouldn't consider playing them unless you're an OTP or just really really good at the game.
- Rengar - Win Rate: 48.27, Pick Rate: 0.7%
- Trundle - Win Rate: 50.10, Pick Rate: 1.5%
- Shyvana - Win Rate: 49.06, Pick Rate: 0.9%
- Rumble - Win Rate: 46.91%, Pick Rate: 0.6%
Trundle being on this list is going to ruffle a few feathers, but hear me out! The way the current meta is going, Trundle is going to become more of an outdated pick. Predator is being taken more often in combination with Ingenious Hunter, thanks to the recent buffs. Trundle will have no way to deal with champions like Hecarim, Gragas, Warwick, and Lillia. All of these champions have been popping up with new builds being innovated with across the world, so I think Trundle is on the way out!
