Welcome to my Nocturne guide. Nocturne is my favorite jungler. He has never been the most popular or the strongest pick for several seasons, but he is still a fun, viable champion with a long history in the League. Nocturne is a late-game auto-attacking carry jungler who specializes in assassinating, punishing mispositioned enemies, and disrupting the enemy team. With a cohesive kit with unique abilities and a proper build and strategies, Nocturne will live up to reputation as the Eternal Nightmare.

You will take slightly more damage if you ran [img=runes/Greater-Seal-of-Scaling-Armor.png] instead of [img=runes/Greater-Seal-of-Armor.png], but that won't be a problem with the proper jungle path. Start at red side double golems. Work your way through the jungle, clearing every camp as you move towards your blue side. After the blue buff golem, head to the river and kill a scuttle crab before to restore some hp through lifesteal and passive leveling. You will have enough hp to take down Gromp (the blue side frog). Congratulations, a perfect clear! You will have enough gold to [img=items/skirmishers-sabre.png], and be well on your way to finishing [img=items/skirmishers-sabre-enchantment---devour.png] within 2-3 recalls. Avoid skirmishes in the jungle at all costs. Nocturne is at his weakest in the Early Game, as he has no items. Don't forget to buy [img=items/vision-ward.png] for vision.

Farm, farm, farm. You're a Devourer jungler. Avoid ganking until [img=skills/nocturne/r.png] is available or extraordinary ganking opportunities arise. Don't forget to take Rift Scuttlers (crabs in the river) which gives two stacks of Devourer and free healing (base healing reward upon killing it + lifesteal against monsters thanks to [img=items/hunters-machete.png].)

As a late-game carry, do what you need to do to carry your team to victory. After at least 4 items, you can comfortably duel anyone. 5-6 items lets you 1v2 with ease and potentially carry the game. Feel free to ult and kill overextended splitpushers isolated from the rest of their team.

Prioritize carries first, especially those out of position separated from the rest of their team. Cast [img=skills/nocturne/r.png] to see the chaos unfold in enemy lines as they dread whom you will target first.
