Jungle Start

Sp I usually start with doing Gromp (be sure to smite it to get the poison buff) and then do my Blue buff. You should be able to get your smite up in time to use it on your Red Buff to get some life back and be able to finish it without any problems. After you've done those you'll need to back and buy your Jungle item.

Jungle Item & Upgrade

So firstly I wanna talk about the different jungle items.

Ranger's Trailblazer is a good item to start with after you've done your first 3 camps (Gromp, Blue and Wolves). Ranger's Trailblazer is good for farming and it's smite passive will help you clear camps easier early. When you have enough gold to buy your enchantment I would swap the Ranger's Trailblazer out for a Stalker's Blade since you won't have such a hard time clearing camps anymore and Stalker's Blade us more effective in mid - late for catching up to people.

Stalker's Blade is in my opinion the best item on Gangplank in the jungle. The nerfs to it in patch 5.1 made it alot weaker than before reducing the movement steal from 50% to 20% (You make them move 20% slower and you move 20% faster). It's still the best option out of the 4 in my opinion because your ganks as GP is not really that greate if you don't have your ultimate up, the slow makes it easier to catch up to targets and get that E damage.

Stalker's Blade - Warrior enchantment is probably the best upgrade for your jungle item to go for since it gives you Attack Damage and Cooldown Reduction which will make u able to use your Parrley more often.

Combat Items

So first about the main combat/damage items for Gangplank jungle.

Statikk Shiv is the item you will rush after your jungle item upgrade is done.
Statikk Shiv gives you both clear speed and insane damage with crits.
Because your Parrrley can crit and you want attack speed to get as many auto attacks of with your Raise Morale this is pretty much your best bang for the bucks in an early game scenario. Combo this with an Infinity Edge and you will have so much damage it's just insane.

Infinity Edge works great with your Parrrley and Statikk Shiv which you will be getting before Infinity Edge. The damage is real with this item.
This and Statikk Shiv are your main damage items that you will be getting there for you will need to get these before you build into something else like a Banshee's Veil or Frozen Heart if that's what you need.

Jungle Route

your Default jungle route would be as shown in the pictire.
1. Do Gromp and ask for a leash, 2. Blue buff, 3. Wolves.
Afer Wolves you would wanna back and buy your jungle item ( Ranger's Trailblazer)
and then continue the route from golems to Red buff.
After you've done Red you can take your raptors or gank a lane it's up to you.
