Why no boots?
You may say that you should be building boots early on for the mobility, however this is incorrect.
Boots cost 325 gold which is just way too much out of a junglers budget, so you should just rush elder lizard and triforce so you can do as much damage as possible.
Aren't you meant to build tanky when behind?
This is a common misconception. You want to build damage - in this case triforce - to brutally overwhelm your opponents. There are no exceptions to this rule, carry on struggling through the zeal, sheen and phage till you build that triforce. Even if you have a kayle and a kog'maw on your team it is irrelevant. You simply cannot rely on teammates to do your damage. Remember to climb out of elo hell and to get to my ranking you have to do it yourself.
You should only have two options when you are in champion select and are forced to jungle
Clearly Malphite is the superior jungle pick but if your teammates threaten to go AFK because of it you will be forced to play Vi. Not much you can do about those misinformed scrubs eh?
