I am finally well enough to be writing again and thus I am able to bring you the next part of the "Top 5 Junglers to Start With" series. The first one was Elise which is a champion that offers plenty of versatility and safety all while teaching a slew of mechanics in one go. The second one was Cho Gath who is more of a defensive type of champion who teaches players forms of teamwork, patience and how malleability. The next champions is Aatrox who is a jungler who represents one of the purest forms of an offensive mindset. He, like his lore would suggest, is heavily combat oriented and is a great choice for learning junglers who needs to add a carry type jungler to their library. It is unfortunate that he costs quite a bit of IP in order to unlock but he is well worth the investment.
I state once again that I value versatility and efficiency quite a bit and Aatrox is on par with other top versatile champions. He is very straightforward offensive champion but his builds are versatile in that they can be mix of offense and defense while still taking advantage of his combat abilities. His versatility goes further as, much like Lee Sin, he is a champion that can change the focus of his build while in game and suffer very little for doing so. If he intended to be pure tank but somehow found himself fed and farmed early, he can alter his build into an offensive build and take that gamble with less severe reprecussions than most junglers. This will be explained a bit later when his abilities are detailed. Aatrox, in a sense, allows a player to suffer a little less for making build mistakes which is likely to happen to people learning how to jungle. It is also always a plus to be able to have a jungler who can go pure tank and pure carry and fit multiple teams as a result.
