You can't catch up to Vi!

The quicksilver sash removes all debuffs from Vi, such as slows, snares, or stuns. So you activate that and then hit randuins when the opponent is close and it slows them enough for your Mobi Boots to active and you get away. Many people do not favor the mobi boots, but this is a must for a jungler. The extra speed buff can get you into banking position on all lanes faster, which can decide the outcome of a lane.

Pros / Cons

Most people do not agree with this build style because they choose to build vi full on tank, however in my experience the jungler needs to be able to dash in, do as much damage as possible, and dash out which is why I build Vi offensively instead of straight Armor and Magic Resist. The cons to this build are that you have to be able to use the active abilities on the items, that is what keeps Vi alive. You have to be able to use the item actives as though it was just another move at Vi's disposal.

Ganking

Vi has two gap closers, one being the skillshot with her q and the other being her ultimate. The gap closer with her q enables her to bank at level three as opposed to junglers like Warwick, Fiddlesticks, or Shyvana, who have no gap closers until they get their ultimate at level six. Vi dominates the jungle because of her ability to shoot through walls with her q making it easy to get away for her, and hard to get away for her opponents.
