Purge's Guide to Jungling Enigma
By pudge
Enigma is a very strong jungling hero who can safely jungle quite rapidly. Use Demonic Conversion and some slight micro to kill camps and quickly farm a Soul Ring. After Soul ring, you can either gank the safe lane for your carry with at least 2 levels of Malefice, or you can continue to jungle.

I recommend maxing Demonic Conversion before Malefice because Malefice ganks can fail, and lv. 4 Eidolons help you farm, push, and kill heroes!

Build Mek for sure, then Blink or BkB for preference!

How good would Necrobook be on Enigma? seems like he could do some hefty damage with it with Black Hole (not to mention the archer aura increasing the DPS of eidolons)

You have a magic stick as a core item.. is it not worth buying a magic wand?

Would arcanes be better than treads on enigma?

I enjoy Purge's videos, but this guide is terrible. Items do not match up at all with how the game uses item builds.

If you would read the guide he explains why blink is not in the core section.

@ak frankly,blink is not an absolute must in all scenarios. often, farming a fast mek will help your team a lot more than a blink initiation every 200 seconds (black hole cooldown). Also, if the opposition is on par with cancelling out the enigma ult or preventing it altogether, then a BKB is the necessary first item. You must always consider the opportunity cost of getting an expensive item, and ofc the team's necessities are most important. I mean sure, if you don't need bkb and someone else on the team can farm up a mek, or if your team desperately needs the initiation from the enigma, then by all means the blink could be the right choice.
