I'm only level 15 right now so I can't jungle.
I play on solo queue mostly too.
Okay, so thing is, why do I have a hard time struggling with using Shaco?
Whenever I try to gank, they just CC the **** out of me, and then I end up dying.
My build so far is Sapphire Crystal + pot > berserker greaves > sheen > madreds bloodrazer > bloodthirster > phantom dancer > infinity edge

Should I just go Lantern > Boots of Mobility > Infinity Edge > Phantom Dancer > Blood Thirster and top it off with a tri-force?

Or is there another recommended build for laning Shaco.

The entire point of Shaco is knowing when to go in. You go in too early, you die. You go in too late, nothing gets done. It's a weird balance.

Farming is essential as shaco, otherwise he will be quite useless in team fights.

Shaco can't do much in team fights, but to act as an assassin.

Let your team go in b4 you do. When you go in, find the enemy carrys/squishys and take them out quick. Now you can either leave or keep helping your team.


Build looks ok, since it is difficult to junlge.. yet.

Your build is definitely one of your problems..

Try this!

Cloth Armor (then the rest of your money in pots HP/Mana, USE ALL YOU CAN. Dont buy 1 of each and say OK THERE IM GOOD)
Lantern
Any boots you want, I go off enemy team..
Madreds Blood Razor
Banshee and Guardian Angel (See which one you need first depending on enemy team, remember lantern and madreds give u armor, so IF you cant choose cuz the enemies are even on AP/AD, get Banshee first)
Last item is what ever you want.. I tend to go for Black Cleaver.

y the survivability?
You said it yourself, u get CCed and pwned, building MORE damage isn't going to fix that..

+rep if this worked out for u :D
