Have you tested Jungle Maokai builds out yet? I've gotten it to about 4:28 post-Lizard, so far, without building a really stupid build.

Still working out the particulars (I'm using Heal, since it's already in the Spotlight), but I could probably get it to ~5:00 with a B and I'd be able to gank with Boots and two CCs.

Edit: Replaced Heal with Ghost, B before Lizard, finish at ~4:38 with both buffs. Maybe I'll video it, if I can find my FRAPS.

Edit 2, results:

ArPen Reds, flat-Armor Yellows, CDR Blues, AP Quints. 1/16/13 Masteries. Smite/Ghost. EQEW.

T-Shirt + 5 Pots, start at Golem, Wolves, Mini-Golems, Wraiths, B, Boots + 2 Pots, Lizard. ~5:00 with ~50% HP and a 2 Pots to spare.

Wraiths, which are the usual weird-jungler hangup, get EATEN by Maokai at 3. Throw Sapling in, run in to punch big Wraith, Q, all the little Wraiths die, auto-attack big Wraith once more and it dies too. Then you B. Total time to do Wraiths, about 4 seconds. Damage you take: Maybe 20.

Well personally I prefer a jungle question to be answered by Stonewall008 rather than ImTheBestPlayerEverCusISaySoEvenThoughIHaveNoProofAndDontListenToAnyCriticism008. Or in other words 95% of the forums here.

Maokai is better off in a lane, imo. Sapling spam is just too strong in a lane. He's like Xin, only jungle if you have no better options, because he is so much better in a lane.

It'd be pretty funny if Jungle Maokai chucked random Saplings from the jungle in to the lanes, though, while he was jungling.

He is universally considered THE person to judge a champion's jungle viability. He has tested and theorycrafted every jungler extensively and documented a lot of it with videos and mathematic support.
