Not Updated For Current Season
The masteries shown here are not yet updated for the current season, the guide author needs to set up the new masteries. As such, they will be different than the masteries you see in-game.
This is my first build guide and the one that has worked out the most for me,enjoy!
Btw pots are necessary to keep you alive.2 health and 2 mana are best after your boots of speed.
These runes are primarily attack to help early game domination 19+ to get fed but its all around helpfull.Magic resist is a easy way to destroy spell casters in mid,top or bot.Its saved me more than you would think
My main idea is to add onto my runes for more damage and also mid game with phantom and IE you get crits pretty easily.I increase damage to minions beacuse shaco isnt a really good farmer early game.I also increase defense because it adds onto your 13+ magic resist and just good to have.
The dorans blades are an easy way to get more damage faster over your opponents,and a early set of boots is a easy way to chase down people.The zeal helps with speed and the bf can get you some easy kills.Then a phantom so your very speedy and a bloodthirster to help with your hp,then the infinity edge with phantom can get you some easy kills.With hp stealers/regens like ww,fid,olaf,xin ect. a madreds can shut down thier lifesteal or health regen.By that time if the game isnt over then just get another bloodthirster.You already have a easy win with these items.
if they start to ever get away without flash ect. or allys just get frozen mallet.
With exhaust and ignite your pretty much good to go on your 1v1 or 1v2's but flash and ignite can catch up to people who use flash alot.Still you can take a educated guess and track them down.
Pros / Cons
Great in any lane
Can deal devistating damage
Easy to slip out of tight situations
Great laning partner
Easy to change the build when necessary
Has to rely on pots in the begining
Best to go with a dps or a hard hitter but if they ks u enough it shuts down the entire build.
Feeders can easily ruin the build
Not a strong junglier
Creeping / Jungling
Not best for jungling ill leave that to ww but still creeping is not shaco's strong suit.
Easily able to own the field by boxes for any situation and crits can deal massive damage to help your allys get kills.Your clone can also tower dive do some good damage and then your allys finishes off.
With boxes loading the bushes is a give in at top and bot but i also want to stress how important it is for that sidebush to get boxes for any type of gank or anything like that.For mid however get the side bushes and the pathways leading to mid.Will destroy any type of easy gank and helpfull for escaping allys or enemys.
Mid game when your chasing or anything like that put a box in the bush bc the guy your chasing will probably come back with allys or his fleeing allys. When your entering a 1v1 or a 1v2 go in with a decieve and a backstab,box the area ahead of you and shiv em. more than likely you will probably fear them or stear them onto a harder path to kill them.
now certain box placements are different like if its yi who will fight u the box place he will got o a stear him into it or for baits and ganks.
Now players can predict where the enemys will go trust your judgement its 99% correct.
like if i am chasing xin through the jungle imma box behind me quickly or in front of me whereever you are.
My other shaco builds include tank shreder witch is on teh far left. What sword of divine is,is basicle a mix of phantom dancer and madreds.great for early game armor shreders.Also there are the ranges and mage destroying builds.If the majority of it all is mages or ranges, go with one build if the majority is tanks, go with my other build if the majority is dps'es.
Word of advice nothing as far as runes,items, or masterys are concered i just max out my shiv first.
