Threats to Shaco with this build
|Udyr||Had problems with him in the past. As long as u get first blood on him and stay ahead you'll be fine :)|
Shaco is a fun assassin that can pretty much escape any disengage he likes if played right. He has a weaker starting game than most junglers but, if you follow my build you'll be three shotting in no time. This is my very first build so bare with me :)
Jungleing with shaco is pretty simple and unique. At the start of the game you do not need a leash so let your teammates know. Ok, now that you have told your teammates figure out what buff the enemy jungler is starting. If he is starting his blue that means you need to start your red vise versa. For example, the enemy jungler is starting their blue ,so you would start your red. At aproximately 1 minute into the game start setting down boxes at your red un til you have 2 boxes down. Wait till your buff spawns then set down another box immediatley for the double fear smite whenever nesessary. When you have AA the little minions and they die gain a point in your Q and run through the river near the enemy junglers wolves (bush). Set down a box in the middle of the three way intersection and Q over the wall. Try to get behind your enemy to get the extra 20% damage bonus. Ignite them immediately and AA them till they die. :) P.S. This strategy does not work with the enemy starting their red buff. If they do then do your red then do a small camp such as wolves or wraiths then do blue. :)
As a Shaco you need to maintain your allies lanes. This means Shaco is made for ganking. After you gain the first blood or finish doing your blue then check out your ally lanes. If an enemy laner is pushed up and has no wards placed then run over to that lane.(Bush) Q into lane behind the enemy. Set down a box at his exit then use your E on him for the slow. Attack from behind if you have the chance for the bonus damage. Remember to tax your ally laner about 2 minions before leaving his/her lane.
Objectives are a big part of this game. Make sure you and your team cooperate and ping for objectives. As Shaco and any other junglers you play at pre level 9 make sure to kill the skuttle crab or simply ward the dragon pit. Same with the baron. The skuttle crab is more intimidating to the enemy jungler because he can see you have vision of him and his teammates. (Skuttle crab=better than ward)
