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, and here is my 3rd and last Shaco guide. In this guide i will show you how to play him AP and how to dominate your enemies. Before we start i gotta say that i dont play this build alot in ranked since i like the other builds better, but really if you want a fun game and just get massive pwnage then you should try this build out!
Extreme damage (Highest nuke ingame!)
Jack in the box can be the reason you win teamfight
Clone 1k+ AoE dmg
Really, really hard to play (Much harder than other Shaco styles)
You need kills!
Not good farmer/jungler
I found these items very good because you will end up with 900AP + which makes you able to onehit champions and able to have 3k dps nuke with jitb's !
Other great items for AP Shaco, Deathfire Grasp, Rylai's Crystal Scepter, Morello's Evil Tome, Zhonyas Hourglass and Voidstaff.
For runes i just take very aggresive AP and magic pen + some mana reg, but some hp or cdr would be fine too :)
I take ignite for more nuke, and more kills on lane
2nd spell i take heal, and dont underate it it's really usefull, and you dont need other escape abilites since decieve is the best escape ability in game, and you are not spamming it as AP.
Other things could be - flash or exhaust.
Try to pick up golem by simply placing 5 JITB'S behind it. Now to lane and harras with dagger and place JITB's in the bushes. You should be able to get a kill with JITB's or decieve-dagger-ignite combo. Try to farm some few minions, but focus on killing :)
Buy Mejais and try ganking mid, junglers or so ..
Place many jitb's in bushes around the mid where champions usually run around, you can be lucky to get double, tripple, quadrakills.. (i even made pentakill with him!)
When doing this JITB spam, you should have elixir, golem/blue-buff or both.
Keep ganging and build up items and stacks.
You wont be able to do big help in teamfights without a spam of jitb's, so try spam and chat with your teammates to draw opponents over there. Other things to do is focus carri'es with your Two-Shiv dagger (It should do 600-1300 dmg at the moment) And send clones into teammates since it will do 1k+ AoE dmg.
Video/Proof of ownage
I have many insane scores with AP Shaco through the time ive played LoL.
I tried 34-2 22-0 19-1 .. many sick scores, here's a video of AP-Shaco gameplay..
Have fun with this build, you will need to practise it sometimes for sure :)
