Ivern is probably the jungle champion with the worst fate in the League of Legends arena, let’s find out the disadvantages that make players forget about this champion.
Zeal is a Jungle champion that has been around for a few years, but the rate of appearance in the rank of the tree god is too low, which proves that League of Legends players do not appreciate this champion. So what is the reason? Let’s find out why a versatile, forest-friendly card like Ivern is abandoned by gamers.
Ivern’s kit doesn’t look like a jungler
Zeal is a quite unique champion, although born in the role of the Jungle, but Ivern’s gameplay is very similar to a Support, although the Jungle Support champion has also made waves many times (Morgana, Blit), but This meta doesn’t last long in the meta. And since Ivern’s playstyle is similar to a support, he only focuses on playing covers.
Ivern was too weak in the early game
Zeal like a support in the woods. His entire skill set was built by Riot just to cover his teammates, so at the beginning of the game this champion looks very ‘lazy’, unable to create many mutations. And especially the skill set lacks mobility, so the ganking also becomes worse than other champions.
Because of these shortcomings, Ivern is very easy to fall behind in the early stages of the game. Something that players usually don’t want from their jungler.
Ivern is very easy to ‘counter’
Because the power in the early stages is somewhat bad as mentioned above, Ivern will be very countered. If you pick Zeal the enemy jungler will immediately pick strong early game champions like Olaf, Lee Sin or Rek’Sai. People who can use their power to overwhelm you from the start.

Depends a lot on teammates
One final reason why it seems like no one likes to play Ivern is because this champion only plays covers, not ‘cannibals’. Although Ivern’s skill set is quite good and has the potential to be extremely strong in the mid and late game after having a few necessary items, it is still too dependent on teammates – the type of play that most the ‘face-blood’ players are often disliked, Ivern will of course be estranged. Especially in a solo queue environment where anything can go wrong leading to defeat in seconds of carelessness.
‘toxic’ teammates and turbulent solo queue environment League of Legends will not ‘favor’ anyone who uses a pacifist ‘support’ jungle champion like Ivern. That’s why this champion’s pick rate is always ‘bottoming out’ at single ranks.
