Introduction

Hi all, this is my first guide so far, i hope u guys like it. It is a bit of a Hybrid Shaco, because i always buy Nashror's Tooth.
Please read this and comment + rate so i can learn from it ;)


Thank you ;)!!


Guide Top

Runes

I pick Greater Mark of Insight, because you will deal some more damage with Two shiv poison.
Greater Seal of Replenishment is cheap, good in early game, and i feel the difference in late game, where it is not so much nescessary because you buy Archangels. It is good to have when u can't pick your Blue buff all the time.
Greater Glyph of Potency is just flat AP, nothing more, nothing less.
Quintessence of Insight is the same story as the Mark of Insight.

Pros and Cons

Pros:

    Nice damage output
    A flash ;)
    Easy early blue buff
    Nice traps
    OP dance

Cons:
    Squishy
    Depending on blue buff in early game
    Late-game jack in the boxes requires quite much skill
    Hard to play


Guide Top

Masteries

Well, the Offensive tree is obviously the standard AP build.
No defense nescessary ;)
Utility: With the runes you have, you'll never run out of mana, if u play your spells smart.
You have the blue buff 30% longer in start of game, thats nice to spam your Two Shivs.
Cd is always nice, and especially with Shaco: Movement speed, Epic.

Items

Amplifying Tome --> Gives more dmg to your Jack in the Boxes, and will help u vs enemmies.
Health Pot --> When your Jack in the Boxes target wrong creature, and vs agressive enemies.
Sheen --> Massive dmg with Deceive behind enemies.
Boots of Speed --> Duh...
Blasting Wand --> Will help u get Morello's earlier
Sorcerer's Shoes --> Magic Pen ftw!
Morello's Evil Tome --> Gives a nice AP boost, and has 20% Cooldown.
Nashor's Tooth --> May be good in 1v1, then ur dmg doesn't only depend on your amount of AP
Rabandon's DeathcapRabandon's Deathcap --> Just a nice AP boost
Lich Bane --> Will help u in 1v1 fights vs other AP Champs.
Archangel's Staff --> Will give u a nice AP boost, and solves your eventually mana problem.


Guide Top

Skills

Start with Jack in the Box to get your blue buff. Max out Two Shiv Poison ASAP.
Deceive maxed out will help you run away vs a gank, or kill someone stealthed easily.
Jack in the Box is only nescessary to prepare a nice gank, and in early game to get your Blue buff.
Hallucinate is a nice ult. When u get ganked, just press ur R button, then ur Q button, and Shaco has left the fight! Also, when u need to push a tower quickly, dont mind pressing R and destroy it.

Summoner Spells

Recommended:

Heal. Recommended with such a squishy chamoion.

Nice to finish off champions in stealth.

Good enough:

Exhaust is also quite nice, but you have your Two Shivs.

It can be use when deceive is on cooldown, but with all those items?

Ghost can be use vs very fast dpsers ( Xin, Yi) But it is not nescessary.

ONly if u have the feeling you are gonna be vs ccers.

Meh:

Not really my thing...

No jungling in this guide, but you can do it i think.

Dont pick:

Dont play like ur dying all the time.

Blue buff + Runes = NO CLARITY ;)

Shaco tank? Nah ah

...

Facepalm.

How to play with this guide.

Go to blue buff before the minions spawned, if you are not sure if you can handle it alone (like when you got no runes or masteries) you may want to ask a teammate to help you. When you arrived at your destination, spam your W spell which you have of course picked first. You will be able to place 5 or 6 boxes. When u got your buff and u are missing health use your health potion, and go backwards via the bushes in the river, if you did the buff by yourself you probably have ur E spell ready, you can choose to place a few jack in the boxes in that bushes in case you get chased. Just walk to them use E and walk back to your boxes. When they chased you: Probably kill. When they don't, repeat it until you can pick up a easy well harrassed enemy kill. When you gained some gold you must rush sheen
and sorcerer's shoes. Then just follow the next items and steps in this guide. When you got Morello's evil tome, and maybe blue buff you are ready to gank big time. Just this spell combo: >> >> >> Spam And repeat your
