Hey all. I just had a question about jungling at lower level ELOs. I know that for competitive play, Trundle is considered a strong jungler just because he's an excellent counter jungler and can do it safely because he disengage at will. Skarner is also considered a good jungle just because he's so freaking tanky and his teamfight initiate is top notch.
I'm finding, however, that in normals and lower elos (~12-1300 in ranked) these champions don't seem to be as useful as some of the more CC or DPS focused junglers like Shyvana, Jax, Nocturne etc.
I'm not sure if I'm not playing Skarner or Trundle right, but it just seems like neither of them do nearly enough damage during the laning phase to ensure successful ganks. Even if you catch a stupidly over-extending laner by surprise, your friendly laner is usually sleeping or is oom due to spamming. Sure, you force the enemy out of lane, but with Shyvana, if you come up from behind an enemy laner with 2/3 health, they're usually gonna die because he whole kit causes damage.
