Not Updated For Current Season
The masteries shown here are not yet updated for the current season, the guide author needs to set up the new masteries. As such, they will be different than the masteries you see in-game.
This is a guide to how to play AD Jungle Shaco (do not use in ranked GAMES!!)
The main purpose of shaco is to be the clean up crew and to help your carries get fed.
I gave the core of my item build. There are variations. If you need more health pick up a frozen mallet. If the other team has many Cc's get a Banshees veil. If you don't need survivability get a phantom dancer
At the start of the game grab your items and go to the golem. Place 4 boxes on golem (not in bush) and 1 more when Golem spawns. Make sure your team is covering you and get away vefore you kill Golem so they do not take any of your XP. If you do this right you will not need to use a health potion. Next move to the wolf camp. Proceed by placing a box behind one small wolf and focusing on the wolf your JiTB is attacking. Move to the wraiths and place behind the big wraith a JiTB. Use a hp potion on these two areas. Move to the golems and place one Jitb in front of one golem. Deceive behind him and kill the golems while using a health potion. You should be lvl 3 now and its time to gank. Look for someone who is low on health or is pushed far out. Once you have one kill (or assist) look for other opportunities to gank or jungle or go back to base. Keep ganking and helping team mates while jungling. Remember to place in-between dragon and blue.
If you want you can counter jungle. Get a vision ward/ boot/ potion and Ghost over to the enemies blue. Place a ward making sure your enemies don't see you do it. Go away and wait for there junlger to get blue and kill him.
As Shaco you have to be aggressive but reserved. Always place your JiTB in bushes. Try not to enter Battles with deceive but save it to KS champs/ chase Champs/ or get away. In team fights never engage. Aim carries first and make sure the other team is distracted fighting other people. Place JiTB at every moment to fear enemies and cut off enemy routes. Before you enter a team fight make sure you have good placement. Always try to be behind the enemy in the enemies territory.
There are so many tricks to Shaco. Your Hallucinate gives you a 1 second invulnerability. USE THIS! If you time this right you dodge Karthus's ult, Zil's time bomb, Towers auto attack and more. Also remember your clone does damage when he dies. One trick that i love is killing teemo with this. For example, a teemo who was invisible had 100 hp on his tower. I deceived through a wall and hallucinated. I ran away from the tower leaving my clone there. My clone died and exploded killing teemo. You can do even more. Say you engage an enemy. Hallucinate and deceive, they will kill your clone and then you go behind them and BAM! a kill.
