ONIC Esports’ Kairi “Kairi” Rayosdelsol may not have won the M4 World Championship crown, but he left a lasting legacy by playing one of the most unique jungle picks in the tournament.

Up against North America’s The Valley in the decider, the 18-year-old jungler picked Jungle Lunox for the first time in the competition. It was a risky pick, for the hero is usually played in the midlane.

But he proved that anything is possible, and had one of the best performances in the series that eliminated the sole North American representative of the competition. Here’s how he did it.

In the fourth game, The Valley banned five heroes Kairi is proficient with, which prompted the Jungle Lunox cheese pick in the final stage of the draft. Lunox is typically played alongside Grock and Lolita, two of the best initiators in the current meta.

The Filipino jungler went for Elegant Gem as his first item, greatly increasing his healing capabilities in the first five minutes. Grock and Lolita were also positioned around him in the first jungle wave to prevent invades.

He went for kills once he reached level four, using the hero’s Power of Chaos ultimate to gank The Valley’s EXP lane Gloo twice in the first five minutes.

With Lunox securing most of the kills and the initiators backing him up, Kairi snowballed and already almost had a full stack of Clock of Destiny in the midgame.

After Clock of Destiny, he went for magic penetration items such as Divine Glaive and Genius Wand to ramp up his killing potential.

Whenever he was caught in a tough spot, he would use the Power of Brilliance to escape. He would then counterattack with Power of Chaos to get the easy pickoffs.

It was such a one-sided affair that Kairi finished with a flawless 7/0/5 KDA by the end of the game.

  • Arcane Boots
  • Clock of Destiny
  • Lightning Truncheon
  • Genius Wand
  • Divine Glaive
  • Holy Crystal

In order to succeed on the hero, you need to have a good early game. Getting a few kills is great, but the main priority should be completing Clock of Destiny and at least one magic penetration item within the first 10 minutes of the match.

That is evident when Kairi went for Secret Shop in his emblem set, which reduces the price of items in the shop by a certain percentage.
