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.
Shaco is one of the most dificult champions in the game,and it have 2 mode of game: AP Shaco (its the more usuall) and AD Shaco (like this build).
This is a build for AD Shaco I always use it in 5v5 at top lane or bot lane and it has been very successful, I hope to serve you try it. Below the explanation of why the items, spells etc order skills.
Why Ignite and Exhaust?
I like very much this skills because you can approach to your enemy with Sheive skill, ten a punch, then with Exhaust you make him slow and kick his ***, and if he can escape you throw ignite and Two-Shiv Poison and its all.
Another good skill can be Flash and Ghost, because with Flash, Sheive and Ghost nothing can kill shaco without stun.
In my opinion Sheive its very good skill at first because you can run fast in the first's ganks and you can approach to your enemy very fast.
Then you must take the dager to harm your enemy and make him slow.
You must take hallucinate ever you can
I dont like much Jack in the box because without AP they dont make much damage, but are good to stun and to make it in the herb, or kill lots of minion in your town, thats why i take it in lvl 4.
And then lvl at max lvl the knife, the hallucinate ever you can, Sheive and at last Jack in the Box.
At first I ever take the Doran Blade, beacuse it have attack damage, lifesteal and others to survive the first step. If you need go base to heal you at first, you can buy some heal potions (I do it ever).
Then I buy vampiric for lifesteal and with potions you dont need go base a lot of time after.
Then I buy Berserk Greaves for the attack speed and the movement speed is necesary
The phantom Dancer is important because with vampiric your lifesteal is too good and phantom has too much critical, but if they have 3 or more off tanks, or 2 tanks i do madred blozahoor instead phantom
Then of Madred Blozahoor or Phantom i do the Bloodthirster for the Attack Damage, the Lifesteal and the stacks it have, is very good, and with Phantom Dancer its a good combination.
Then i Do Last Whisp for the armor penetration it have. With it, if you make a critical it be very very powerfull.
And then Infinity edge, youre critical are more powerfull and you have a lot of Attack damage.
If the game is too large ( 50 minutes) you can do the items you think you need, but a Phantom is a very good election, for more critical and more attack speed
The Strategy at the begining of the game, you must go fast to the herb with your budy. Then you must exhaust an enemy and attack him with your parner, use sheive to aproach him if is necesary, or to escape if they are too strong, and use ignite to finish and be the first blood.
At lvl 2 you approach to you enemy with sheive, then use the knife to slow him and attack, if you have exhaust without cooldown use it and finish with ignite and other knife.
At lvl 6 and later is the same but you can do your hallucinate, it is very usefull confusing your enemy and doing too much damage.
If you need escape ever you can use sheive and run to the jungle.
I hope my guide will help you and give you fun with Shaco (:
