Lycan's Lore

Banehallow was noble-born to the house of Ambry, the greatest of the landed castes in the old kingdom of Slom. Before the Fall, as the King’s wants grew strange, and his court grew crowded with sorcerers and charlatans, the house of Ambry was the first to rise against the avarice of the throne. No longer willing to pay homage and fealty, they instead sent six-thousand swords into the capital, where they were wiped out in the Massacre of the Apostates. And then came the teeth behind the old truth: When you strike a king’s neck, you had better take his head.

Enraged by the betrayal, the king exterminated the vast Ambry bloodline, sparing only the lord of the house and his youngest son, Banehallow. Before all the royal court, with the disgraced lord chained to the ornate marble floor, the King bade his magicians transform the boy into a wolf so that he might tear out his own father’s throat. “Do this,” the king said, “so that Lord Ambry will understand the bite of betrayal.” Powerful magic was invoked, and the child was transformed. But though his body was changed, his spirit remained intact, and instead of biting the exposed neck of his father, he attacked his handlers, tearing them to pieces. A dozen of the King’s knights perished under the wolf’s teeth before they managed to drive it off into the night. Lord Ambry laughed from his chains even as the King ran him through with a sword. Now the heir to the lost house of Ambry, Banehallow wanders the trail as the Lycan, part warrior, part wolf, in search of justice for all that he lost.

I love Lycan... more devastating version of mini-nature's prophet :D. Push this lane, bring down tower. Enemy team comes, tp out to other lane or run away at 650 ms. Push that lane. Take down tower. Enemy team comes. Tp to another lane or run away at 650 ms. Repeat until all enemy towers and barracks have fallen. Then fountain dive with mega creeps :). GG! (team serves as a distraction so Lycan can continue pushing :D)

PLEASE MAKE AN UPDATED GUIDE FOR 6.83 JUNGLING


Why? There was no recent change to jungling Lycan. The only change there ever was to Lycan jungle dates back from version 6.75, all the changes that happened since then were only nerfs to his push and to his escape ability.
Any guide that was made after 6.75 is up to date essentially.

(the posts above date from 2012, this is the only thing that's outdated here xD)

Jungling with wolves is still viable and advisable.

It's harder than before, but it's still doable. Lycan would have to take a few more hits himself in the jungling process, but once you get Vladimir's Offering it becomes almost like pre-patch.

Otherwise, Lycan would have to lane, which is still a bad idea for him, as he will have no power over the lane with his lack of CC and overall power until he reaches Level 6; at which point, he'll still have to rely on slows or stuns.
