FAQs About Ivern

Is Ivern good at counter jungling?

Yes. Ivern is great at counter jungling. Counter jungling is when you invade the enemy jungle to take their camps away from them. It's especially effective if you can take away their buffs. Ivern can steal camps quickly using his passive and smite.

How can I use Ivern's artificial brush, effectively?

Ivern's brush can be used like smokescreen to deny vision of your teammates from the eyes of the enemy. Additionally, it can be used to hide that you are taking down objectives like the Baron or the Dragon. Even if the enemy team has vision of the dragon, they won't be able to spot you in brush, and so your attack will be hidden from their minimaps. Unless they look directly at the dragon, they will likely miss it.

How should I build Ivern?

Ivern is a very versatile champion. He can grant active buffs through his shield; he can buff his AP or AD to deal more damage; and he can build tanky items to maximize his survivability to increase his CC threat.
