What Changed

Boots now cost 25 gold less. Dorans Ring costs 400 gold now

If an enemy is behind a wall, Hecarim can to hop OVER wall example video

Golems, wraiths, wolves will spawn @ 1:55 (NOT 1:40)

Golems, wraiths, wolves will respawn faster: 50 seconds (17% faster! … more jungle farm)

Blue & Red camps now give 20% more XP start blue, no wraiths, smite red for  FAST LEVEL 3!

Alistar!

Alistar by chris bjors

Jungle Alistar is back!  but shhh keep it a secret  `-^

Start boots + 4 pots Q-E-W. Get smiteless red/blue (use 2 pots) then do blue/red (use 2 pots & E), now GANK top/mid!

You will be level 3, mid/top will be level 2  ^-^

GANKING: wait in bush, until enemy moves in to harass/lasthit, then RUN in until you can FLASH + Q. Now Auto-Attack, and then use W to let the solo’er finish him!

After that, stay between the enemy and his tower so his flash is useless (remember you have red buff!). It’s a guaranteed kill if you land your flash combo Runes  Masteries

R.I.P. Wriggles

Morellos Wriggles

Now costs 25% more gold (2000 g), in exchange for +10 AD & +5% lifesteal.

Wriggles’ ward now lasts 90 seconds!

For that price, you might as well buy a bloodthirster (3200 gold, 100 AD, 18% lifesteal)

The only good news is: the bonus damage to monsters is no longer random: 100 magic damage per hit

Junglers to try Now

random

level 3 ganks  – – – –  Alistar, Jarvan, Lee, Maokai, Xin

farm more, gank faster  – – – –  Evelynn, Lee Sin, Volibear

farm more, control dragon  – – – –  Sejuani, Shyvana, Zac

underplayed in solo ranked  – – – –  Evelynn, Nocturne, Skarner

Note: Sejuani’s slow durations have been nerfed, but she benefits from jungle XP and respawn buffs

see Stonewall’s Lissandra Era tier lists for the best Fighter, Bruiser, Tank, Support, AP junglers before patch 3.8

Runes

Dont feed cassi

Always bring flat Magic Resist (MR) or MR per level glyphs.

AP Mids now have the option of buying Dorans Ring + 2 pots. If you plan to gank a strong mid you’ll need MR.

If you plan to start with boots on alistar, also use Movement Speed runes (they will multiply the bonus from boots)

LJTD 4.2 – Advanced Minimap features and bugfixes

Hey guys, first of all I didn’t want to write another Post so fast but…

there were sooo many changes within this version that made it so necessary, sorry therefore 😉

Download Version 4.2.0.0

Info & Changes

Well there were so many guys asking why does my CTRL key not work properly with Write2Chat. So we decided to simply not offer it anymore. That was the easiest way because it was just buggy and we were not able to fix the bugs coming within. You can now still use it for timing ONLY. Furthermore there have been some name changes to prepare LJTD to be understood also by new users. Have a look on the History to see what they are.

We also wanted to make sure that everybody is being informed by just having a look on the program and without reading stuff like our FAQ section. So we added some exclamation and question marks for optional information.

Bugfixes

We noticed the Ward Timer bug – from the previous version – some days after publishing it. But we decided to wait with an update to avoid spamming updates and getting some more bugs fixed, too. Most of them are concerning the Advanced Minimap which in this version will give you much more freedom.

There has also been updated the RESET and SAVE button for a simpler configuration of your Settings. Some huge embarrasing bugs like loosing focus on the Settings finally got fixed.

The really important fix is the change of the Team Button. Clicking on the button will not restart your Buffs anymore. So you can still change the sides if you forgot it at the start!

Features

The main feature is that you got more freedom on the Show Duration feature for the Advanced Minimap. Now it’s possible to change the size and also individual locations. This will be useful if you want the text on a non-default location. This is an professional feature and needs some time to configure!

LJTD 4.2 -Advanced minimap

Another amazing feature is that you can now change any Buff you want. Up to now you only could setup Blue & Red buffs as one. Furthermore that you can now set the seconds so that replacing a buff as the summoner spell Flash is now possible.

TL:DR; as always have a look on the History page for a summary.

Summoner, now you’re Ready to Jungle!

LJTD v4.1.0.0 – reworked Advanced MiniMap

We are back from a longer break summoners and have some good news for you.

With this release v.4.1.0.0 you will  get again a new cool feature and also a performance optimization within the Advanced MiniMap.

Download Version 4.1.0.0

Performance optimization

If you have followed our topics on Facebook there has been a problem with the Advanced MiniMap when many matchups are played and more and more buffs where timed.

So on slow PCs the CPU might have dropped to about 5% CPU usage after 5 games. We completely reworked the system and now we are under 1%, no matter how many games.

Advanced MiniMap changes

As you can see from the picture below, there are some new labels showing you the seconds when a buff will be available again.

Advanced MiniMap Update

Of course you can decide whether you want this or not! So there are three ways getting informed by LJTD:

  • Ping signs / setting up duration
  • Ping sounds
  • Show durations (remaining seconds of running buff)

Advanced MiniMap in Config GUI

The durations are 8 pixels tall and in the colours of the relating buff.

What to watch for in this version?

Just import your old config file and start LJTD. Now open Config GUI and hit save, it doesn’t matter which tab. Your config file is now updated and running.

TL;DR Visit the History page for an overview of changes within this version.

Summoner, now you’re Ready to Jungle!
