Hey guys! I absolutely love Shaco and his abilities, however whenever I play him (Except 1 time) my KDA is like 5 18 7, with me being the lowest level and having most deaths.

I have played him about 10 times and maybe improved a little bit but really not at all. Most of my games I loose.

I have watched loads of high tier vids on him and I try to do what they do but all my ganks fail.

This is my usual path thing:

1. Stack boxes at red (3)
2. Put fourth at the wraith ( I think that's what they are called)
3. Kill red smite it
4. Go to wraiths place another box kill 3 minis leave the big one
5. Try to gank mid or if I can't I go to my blue
6. After blue I go b or try gank mid/top
7. Try gank a lot

I think my main problem is that I don't farm enough and gank too much which most I fail :/ How much should I be ganking compared to farming?

Thank you so much!

Clear your first buff as you stated. Go to the enemy buff and steal that and or place a deep ward. Most of the time you may be able to draw first blood off the enemy jungler. Gank lanes as you go in-between each jungle quarter.

You're level 19.

You have to remember that level 30 people have 30 mastery points and full rune pages of tier 3 runes. (you haven't even unlocked tier 3 runes yet).

Runes and Masteries help ALOT when jungling.

You should be upgrading your machete to a Madreds on your first back.

Looking at your games you seem to have over 10 deaths on most champions you play. Don't think its a Shaco thing. Think you just need to learn more about how to play in general bud. Don't worry about it buddy. I'm still terrible and i've been playing for a while now.

To answer your question, Shaco is strong early because of his ability to go invis and pop up randomly in lanes.
He should Gank a lot early (like 2mins - 6mins).

Also don't be afraid to find the enemy jungler in their jungle if they are playing a weak jungler

Stack 4 at buff, then either wraiths/wolves, then other buff.
go gank
ping that you are going in to gank
deceive in from Fog
ping attack while your moving in
get behind enemy your ganking
place box in their escape (behind them towards their tower)
auto them for crit (try to do from behind cause extra damage)
use shiv to slow them while they go over box
kill

or

they flash
walk into fog again
wait for cooldowns
they come back to lane with <50% hp
repeat
