Nocturne or shaco? Not which is better at what, but as an overall jungler who has more potential? I feel like shaco is a little squishy but good assassin. But nocturne is a good bruiser with gank potential.

Nocturne has more overall value in teamfights. Shaco does great early and into mid game, but he falls off late game comparitively.

Nocturne fills the role of a bruiser on your team, allowing top to play however they want to, where Shaco is a more of a type of AD carry, but not nearly as capable as say Yi or Tryn in late game. From a ganking standpoint, Shaco is way better due to his stealth / teleport, but a single Pink voids this for you. Nocturne becomes extremely good at ganking after level 6 due to his dash, plus he is better at chasing. Finally, from a jungle clear time, Noc is better due to his overall sustain. Yes, Shaco can quickly shred camps with his boxes, but Noc will be safer in the long run. The only hard thing on Noc is knowing when to R and when to let them get away. R can put you in bad situations where you are behind enemy lines or in the range of towers so you have to be careful.
