OMG MADSTONE IS SO OP! As Udyr, YI, and Xin i can solo dragon (without using ult) with this build. In the Jungle wait to back until you have about 1.2k,so you can buy spirit stone, madreds, a ward,and a few pots. After that go strait to dragon and solo it, if not already taken. Plz use this build its so op (unless your on the enemy team when im playing :P)

I've truly upped my jungle game with goin' madstone on master yi. More than half the time I don't even need any kind of boots to jump in and participate in ganks since master yi's base movement speed is pretty hefty.
Getting feral flare at 15 mins in and dominating enemy team with a lot jungle presence is well worth the small amount of extra money you have to spend.

Granted, you do need to make sure you have a competent team that can lane well against the enemy team and doesn't 100% absolutely need your ganks to function, which can be a pain when playing with randoms.

Madstone has its uses, but I would definitely base the decision on my team. If you get Madred's Razor and Spirit Stone, you don't really have many combat stats and so you don't want to be fighting champions. I see too many Udyrs go madstone, then die during early ganks because they are to squishy and don't do much damage.

If you have a team with several late game champions, you may be better just ganking for them early to try and get them ahead or keep them even instead. If you get farmed with madstone but the enemy jungler crushes your lanes, you probably can't carry it. Just, see how the game is going before your first back and decide whether you can afford to farm jungle pretty much exclusively until 15 minutes.

I agree, I always try and let my teammates know that I won't be available a whole lot for ganks in the early game and ask if they're cool with that.

Madstone is really, really good on junglers who have respectable early game clear times. Early game, it allows you to run dragon stupid early, get feral quickly and stay in jungle forever. Mid/late game you'll have Feral built with multiple stacks and if you ever get low on hp, you run a few camps and you're at full hp and mana again.

Worth every penny.

It is broken as hell. Your clear speed is so fast that you can get a feral flare by like 12 minutes and farm until you have like 3 full built items (by 20 minutes) its really broken, and riot needs to fix it.
