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.
Hello my name is Grannytrannies and you are here for one thing to learn how to make ***es throb.I want to tell you that this is my 1st guide and I started on 2/3/13 (MobaFire).
Items (Jungle AD)
Now the Machete and the Potions are average starts for jungling and I think you should get madred's razor because hell it adds speed to your jungling and when it mixes whith them crits.Get boots after that to speed up ganks you in general and the speed in the jungle.
Wigglers lantern is a great sustain in the begging however when I complete the rest of the build i switch it out with the bloodthirster. My favorite item in this build is the static shiv its like the phantom dancer but it shoots ****ing lighting. After that you get the Infinity Edge not only cause of the attack damage but also because it changes the crit damage from 200% to 250% wich will make a huge difference.I know most people get the Phantom Dancer but instead i get the Zephry what it lacks in the crit bonus it makes up for in speed and CD and i think it makes a difference however sometimes i will change to the phantom dancer depending on the tank they have.
Deceive-Shaco instantly becomes invisible for 3.5 seconds and teleports to a near by location, if he attacks an enemy while in stealth he deals crit damage40/60/80/100/120% bonus damage.
Jack In The Box-Shaco put down a box that will turn invisible with in 2 seconds and when an enemy comes within (300) range it will pop out and fear an enemy and deal 35/50/65/80/95+(20% ability power)
Two Shiv Poison-Shaco throws a shiv that poisons an enemy and slows them up to 30% for 2 seconds but also has a passive that states when two shiv is ready Shaco's attacks slow his enemies and deals 50/90/130/170/210(+100% ability power).
Hallucinate-Shaco stealths for half a second and creates a copy of him self that deals 75% of damage that Shaco does and takes 50% more damage however when the clone dies or wares off it explodes doing 300/450/600(+100% ability power).
Backstab-When Shaco is behind an enemy he deals 20% extra damage.
Ability order and Why (Jungle AD)
Now why you would start is that the boxes tear through the jungle for you taking damage and giving damage.Shiv and Deceive are switchable for levels 2 and 3. How ever i would advise taking Deceive if they have already countered you it makes it easier to travel in the jungle.When you finish maxing out Shiv don't be scared to max out deceive i know some people max out the boxes but they wont be enough to help in a team fight were if you used deceive it increases crit damage.Hallucination is used for to things attacking and dodging.Say Ashe uses her ult and fires that cold arrow up your ***.Simply use Hallucination to turn you in to dust for a quick second but be careful to time it right.
You should make a combo with Deceive (Q) and Hallucination (R).But be careful to execute Deceive right or your enemy will run.
Greater Mark of Attack Damage
Greater Seal of Armor
Greater Glyph of Critical Damage
Greater Glyph of Scaling Magic Resist
Greater Quintessence of Attack Damage
I chose these because they have to do with what he needs crits attack and something to make him less of a squishy piece of troll.
Pros/Cons (Jungle AD)
Passive needs a specific area of the enemy (Its cool though)
Can be horrible in team fights
Summoner Spells (Jungle AD)
Other good ones
Flash -Helps leap over walls if ya **** up
Ignite -If you are awesome you know how to play with murder in one hand and genocide in the other.
Listen im new im not gonna spend the time to look how to make it pretty so.
The reason Shaco is countered by Lee Sin because his E reveals invisible enemies when used and also cripples as-well. Not only that he also has more mobility and is a bruiser.
With these he smashes Shaco and disables his escape mechanism.
For Riven she is a pretty good counter her W is good against his boxes not only that since she mainly tops a squishy Shaco is a dead Shaco. If she jungles she has better ganks and clear time.
For Olaf I mean comeone he might aswell be a counter for almost every champ between spaming his axe, his true damage, and if you were to counter jungle he can duel any champ
face it he will stamp bromasia on your ***.
Warwicks ult can be a pain for every one even for Shaco the only way to have a good chance to negate away is if some how for some reason a box will fear him and yes it can happen.Not only that if you have I think 50% health or less he can see and gets bonus MS so be careful when there is a Warwick.
These are the top 4 that will kill you easily.
Champs you are strong against
Amumu can be easy to counter in the jungle early game not only that Amumu is great in team fights and better than you so try to kill him alot early game and it will be very, very easy for your team and remember take his blue or his red.
Say your in a team fight or you gank when Xerath gets his W he stands still back exposed
deceive his *** to death.
Now some people think pfft... burts damage she has will take care of Shaco no problem. Well let me tell you good luck your ult is useless so there goes your burst damage. If I can get behind you your ****ed ult me I will deceive or ult when I do this you are done.
Face it Rammus is not the best tank his power ball is easy to dodge. His ball curl can be a little difficult to deal with but not to worry it will be a little difficult. The one thing that will be difficult is his taunt but dont worry deceive is a *****.
These are the top 4 champs you will destroy.
Champs that you want to be with you
Now that Shaco has been nerfed some people have trouble trouble catching up his hook and your boxes are a death combo for any champ.
Listen we all hate taunts some times thats why he is perfect not only that his shield helps alot for survival these two moves help Shaco butt rape every one every thing. Yes even the turret.
Agsin the nerf can be a pain but with Teemo blinding,stunning,and slowing your opponent it shouldnt matter if you get the kill or he gets the kill it will hold the enemy back.
For Yorick to be with Shaco it confuses you witch one to focus they can both add teamates in to the fight and both are ADC so it will be tough during fights.
These are the top 4 champs that will help you but rape everyone.
Remember this is my first guide I hope you like it.Please comment I need to know what I need to improve on.
