For jungling, Hecarim or Vi?

I heard great things about Vi in terms of clear speeds and gank potentials. But Hecarim seem so godly in roaming.

Hecarim is weaker early on, but can carry harder.

Vi is pretty solid though.

From what I've seen from Vi, she can carry pretty hard. She can cross over terrain for ganks, has a great clear time, and does lots of damage even while building tanky.

Hecarim's ult tends to be better, though.

They are both great.

Vi is better early, Hecarim is better late.

Hecarim starts out kind of weak but snowballs crazy hard off of a few kills. If you get the upper hand in laning phase, expect to have a monsterous influence in mid and late. Not only can Hecarim put out godlike aoe damage and cc constantly, but his W also makes him obscenely tanky. My Core Item Build on Hecarim is Machete/5 pots start > Boots+ spirit stone first back > Merc treads > Spirit of the Elder lizard > Spirit Visage > Iceborn Gauntlet > Captain's boot enchant > whatever I feel I need/can afford. My most common last items are Warmogs, Atma's, Mercurial Scimitar, and Maw of Malmortius.

Vi's clear times are awesome early on. Her ganks are pretty solid too. From my experiences playing her, her main problem is her lack of ability to properly stick to people. I remedy this by taking move-speed quints in my rune setup. I usually also build Frozen Mallet or Iceborn Gauntlet for the slows. I've noticed that she works best with a Spirit of the Elder Lizard as one of her main damage items. Makes her W procs do insane damage to jungle creeps. Having a little bit of cdr is a must on Vi so you can Q and R more often. My go-to items for that are Black Cleaver and Iceborn Gauntlet.

Vi is permabanned in ranked and Hecarim is not. Personally, I prefer Vi but I don't get to play her soooo..
