Even with a decent leash, and arranging my clear so smite is up for both buffs, I can't actually take both buffs. I either have to back before I start the second buff, or it executes me.
It can't be my items - I use boots pots, and while I realize cloth 5 pots would be slightly safer, and I've heard of people taking regrowth on him, I've seen him jungled with boots pots at a professional level, so that doesn't seem to be the problem.
I doubt it's my abilities - I start W, then E, then Q, which as far as I can tell is the standard start for Mundo. I only have E on when absolutely necessary - it's not like I'm running between camps burning health. Yet I still have practically nothing left.
Similarly, I doubt it's my masteries - I'm using quite alot of blue, with a small amount of green, giving me all the early armor and health regen, some damage reduction, and extra health. Offensive masteries don't seem like they'd help - I feel like I lose more HP from my ability cost then from the camps themselves, since they die alot faster then against my other jungle champs who don't have health issues.
I have to assume the problem is runes - I'm using my default jungle page with flat AD, flat armor, and MR/level, with MS quints. Is there something more effective for mundo, the way AS supposedly helps Nocturne(can't afford AS runes just yet, but I've been told they help him finish first clear with much more health then I do with my page), like max health or health regen?
