Easiest champ to learn jungle: Warwick. Not the most viable jungler, but hes really safe. The top ones are Lee, mundo, skarner, udyr, noc, maokai, but those are a bit harder to learn than ww, specially lee, which i cant play at all.

To learn solotop, probably Cho Gath, Mordekaiser, so, champs that can clear waves fast so when you are losing, you can still defend the tower.

Honestly, solotop is all about counterpicks, and winning trades.

There you go. Just get all the 1350 champs for solotop role, then a few of the 3150, like Gangplank and Olaf. You can now play solotop against anyone, as long as you know your champ.

To be honest, Solotop is one of the easiest roles in the game. As MaxiBeca said, it's more about counter-picks and learning the various matchups than anything else. The only thing you have to really worry about is getting ganked by their jungler. Because of the location of the lane, it's a lot harder to escape from a gank if you are overextended than if you are in Mid, and level 2 ganks are very popular.

As a solo top player, you need to have good lane control, so you can either freeze the lane, or push it depending on the situation, and then you just farm up as much as you can, and supporting your jungler if he needs help.

Jungling on the other hand is a lot harder. You need to be flexible on what you do, because no game is going to go the same way as another. Depending on how the lanes are, you might need to gank more often, or less. Also depending on the enemy jungler, you might want to counter-jungle more, or play more defensive. The best thing to do is to watch the streams and study the top junglers like TheOddOne, Dan Dinh and CLG Snoopeh to see what they do.

To jungle effectively, you need to know pretty much everything about any champion on the enemy team. Before you initiate a gank, you need to know if you are capable of achieving anything in it, because the last thing you want is to go in for a gank and get destroyed by the enemy because they are naturally stronger than you at that point.

As Solotop you should ask for ganks when your opponent has pushed the lane.
As Jungler you should expect to be badgered about ganking.

I think the very best champion for learning jungling is Warwick, because his gank are really great especially with his ultimate. Also ww could be a good counter against other jungler here especially with his passive. So try it out and i hope you'll have fun.

I agree on most departments, exept for solotop being one of the most easy roles.

as stated by many pros and now me: solotop is one of the hardest roles to play, if you dont understand this its fine, im not taking my time to elaborate myself but I can tell you being a good top isnt easy.

I dont think there are any "easy" roles in LoL but instead "safer roles" Playing mid and top you are not as safe as bot because your alone if a gank comes your way , on the other hand if your bot and a jungler comes to gank and lets say you get grabbed by an enemy Blitz you will die almost instantly, LoL is a team game , the better your team mates are the easier your lane will be :P
