Introduction

Hello, this is my guide to create a more or less successful Shaco AP guide utilising his JiTB (Jack in the Box) and his Two-Shiv Poison to take out enemies. I don't recommend using this Shaco build in the middle lane because his JiTBs aren't as effective.


Guide Top

Masteries

I set my masteries to a basic 9-0-21 giving me cool down reduction, ability power, magic penetration and mana regeneration.


Guide Top

Summoner Spells (S.S.)

For my S.S. , I chose to use Exhaust and Ignite due to the fact the Shaco can teleport/flash FREELY (approx. 10 sec cooldown) and in addition, his teleport/flash stealth's for a short period.

Some optional S.S. :
- Teleport
- Flash
- Ghost (If you choose ghost, it's recommended that you activate it then Deceive for maximum effect)

Other S.S. aren't recommended but if you're capable of playing with them, then go for it but Exhaust is a must.


Guide Top

Items

The goal of my build is to have
- Reduced cooldown time
- Mana & Mana Regen.
- High AP
- Magic penetration

Note: If you feel to vulnerable to attacks, you can switch the either of the Rabadon's Deathcap or with Morello's Evil Tome with the Rylai's Crystal Scepter. Also note that the Deathfire Grasp has a very useful UNIQUE ACTIVE.

Runes

Like most people including myself, you will not have enough IP to afford all the runes, unless you used RP to buy champs, or if you're just in to the game.

Pros / Cons

Pros:
- High damage output
- Stealth
- Fear and Slow
- Deceive(Another version of Flash)
- Ability to take out carries easily
- Survivability
- JiTB can be used as wards (Be sure they don't activate when enemies pass)
Cons:
- Your JiTBs may be easily avoided (you may also plant the JiTB in battle (One is often enough!)
- Your JiTBs may attack nearby minions if they're too close


Guide Top

Tips

- Use you JiTBs as 90 secs vision wards (Be sure they don't activate when enemy units approach)
- If you think there's something lurking in the brushes, send a JiTB in there
- Deceive is your way out so don't waste it because the dool down time is long enough for you to die a few times
- Use you Two-Shiv Poison to slow enemies down if you choose to get Rylai's Crystal Scepter it'll be more effective


Guide Top

Team Work

Usually you might want to have a few of you team mates to support in case your traps don't kill them or if they can survive your JiTB(s) (Don't worry most of the time, you'll get the kill). You might also need them to lure the enemy to your traps.


Guide Top

How To Kill

You want to...

- Have a few JiTBs (3-4) pre setted in the brush (You could always improvise in mid-fight by placing some around)
- Exhaust the enemy a bit before they enter the kill zone (If your in mid-fight exhaust when the JiTB starts attacking)
- Unleash your ultimate while the enemy's feared (The main damage in your ultimate is the explosion cause when your clone dies)
- Save your SHIV and your DECEIVE in case the enemy starts to run
- Ignite/Deathfire Grasp(UNIQUE ACTIVE) if necessary

Note that the Deathfire Grasp deals 30% of the target's current health (Min. 200 damage) so it's best to use it during the start of the battle.


Guide Top

Skill Sequence

Basically, the goal of my skill sequence is to max out JiTB first, Two-Poison Shive second, and Deceive last (Also acquiring the ultimate ASAP). If you feel too easily killed or unable to escape at LV 4, get Deceive at LV 2-3.

Summary

To end this guide I'll give you a quick summary of everything:
- Stack JiTB beforehand (You could place them in mid-battle)
- The main power of your ultimate is in the explosion
- Use the passive of the Deathfire Grasp
- GetRylai's Crystal Scepter instead of the Rabadon's Deathcap or Morello's Evil Tome
- Side lanes
