  • The recharge timer reduction for Smite is granted when it is used on an enemy monster. The bonus gold and move speed boost are granted when that monster is killed.
    • The monster can be killed at any point after smiting it and still grant the bonuses.
  • Dragon Dragon is part of the blue team's jungle.
  • Baron Nashor Baron Nashor is part of the red team's jungle.
  • Art was reused with a slightly different color scheme for the Season 6 Tracker's Knife Tracker's Knife.
  • This enchantment was removed because it was only considered useful when counterjungling, and even then, other jungle enchantments would actually help more with counterjungling, in addition to bringing more utility to the table. For this reason, Poacher's Knife was almost never purchased.
