How to Jungle Loki
First off you should learn how to jungle with any jungler then you can start worrying about jungling Loki. To start off with loki jungle you need to start at speed buff because you dont have much a base speed and neither morning star nor assassins blessing give you movement speed so you need it. Also as loki you can invade if your a single level behind because you can always escape with ult or 1. so from speed buff I like to hit xp harpies(side camp then middle camp) then i like to gank middle if its open. following up from that I switch sides and sit on the dual lane side for a few minutes and clear those buffs. By then you should have your speed buff up again and from there you just repeat. You also need to remember there is another jungler depending on who it is and how much they got you can out "box" them. Just be cautious about your level positioning and enemy positioning. Also if you want to be a real jerk gank dual lane after you get speed buff.
In team fight loki can be usefull he just has to be played well. There are several ways to go about playing loki in a team fight such as saving your one to escape ulting the mage(if not the "squishiest" person) basic attacking then using your 3 then basic attacking again to finish him. after that use your 1 to escape then wait for your 1&3 to get off of cooldown(Thats why you built cdr) then go back and start poking. You could also engage with your 1(although a little more risky) and do it that way.

Counter Play God Bye God

How a game should look (This is in minutes not levels)
1-5: YOU SHOULD always grab your speed buff first followed by the near xp camp then go to the middle xp camp and possibly gank middle lane or help clear middle lane then follow the route lower in the description.(just follow the how to jungle section)
6-10:Now you should have your ult and can start ganking solo lane and middle lane and can switch to the mid game route made for rotation.
11-20:Team fighting should start around here give or take a few minutes now you need to utilize your abillitys and be highly aware of everything. You are going to be able to change a team fight instantly so be careful. Follow the team fight section to learn more
21-Whenever the game ends:There is alot of team fighting and split pushing in this section so look at the team fight or the How to jungle parts to learn more.
That pretty much sums it all up for the game you can change it if you wish this is just if its a good game.
OK How to basically do loki in a couple of paragraphs. First Practice as with any god you need practice, Second you need to read other guides im not the only source availible, Third Have fun. Ok to start with loki you need to buy him (there is no point in not) Then you need to join a conquest and call jungle. wait for the game to load and then buy the starting kit(as seen above). After that you must move to your speed buff. Once you have taken the speed buff Hit up some camps and if your a Higher level than the other jungler try to invade. If the invade is succesfull spam VEW. Following that Attack Middle lane and mess up the other mage. Rinse and repeat from there. Now ill tell you what to do when 1v1 the other jungler. First i want you to know your Jungler. Are they aa based or ability? Do they have there ult ready or no. Do they have any ccs? Do they have an escape? These are all important questions that must be asked. Because loki is an aa god he cant do anything without his Auto Attacks. So if the Opposing Jungler is lets say camazots be careful because if he hits you he can see you while cloaked and he cam easilly attack you. Next know your team you need to know your team before you pick loki because he doesnt have much cc so pick wisely.
