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.
Well , hi, this is my first guide, so i hope you Njoy it, English is not my Lenguage, so sorry if you dont understand something or i write something wrong.
I´ll start saying that Shaco was one of my first Champ on League of Legends, but i must be honest, and say that i start to play AP Shaco when Dominion came D: , i was lvl 30 Already, but i must say that AP shaco is the funniest Champ to play, i learn how to play with him very quickly and with this build you will get Tons of fun, also Kills and Asist.
Why this Masteries?
Simple, this build have been made for CDR ( Cold Down Reduction ) , soo , thats why i pick this Masteries , with the Utility Tree , and the Magic Dmg from the Offense Tree.
Greater Mark of Magic Penetration + Greater Seal of Ability Power + Greater Glyph of Ability Power + Greater Quintessence of Ability Power
Well , not much to say , ur AP Shaco , and this Ability power is nice at the beginning , also the MP ( Magic Penetration ) , this will help you to get mostly squishy Champs ( you can finish them with ur Ignite Spell ), you can also change this runes, if u want more CDR , or Mana per sec , is your choice.
As i Say it, this build is for CDR , so you can use ur skills whenever u want, this is why i get Ionian Boots of Lucidity , then i pick Morello's Evil Tome , with this 2 items , and your Masteries:
Deceive = 6.6 sec CD
Jack In The Box = 9.6 sec CD
Two-Shiv Poison = 4.8 sec CD
Hallucinate = 60 sec CD
very nice :) , the other item.. not much to say about, ur AP, so Rabadon's Deathcap is always a nice Item , HERE!!! you can start purchase your own Items , if you want to slow your target, specially when they get hit by your JiTB, so they can get more dmg , get Rylai's Crystal Scepter , or you want a burst on your Auto atacks, get Lich Bane , or some Magic Penetration? get Void Staff , you can also get some defence Items like Zhonya's Hourglass or a Guardian Angel , is all your choice, just remember the 3 main Items, Ionian Boots of Lucidity , Morello's Evil Tome and Rabadon's Deathcap
Why Two-Shiv Poison first?
Well, with AP Shaco you can do alot of Damage with this skill , so alows you to kill Champs, or, why not, run away when they are chasing you, spacialy when your Deceive is on a CD, and the enemy Champ is fastest than you.
Jack In The Box
Ill put images soon, where i put my JiTB , to Freak out the enemy team , and of course get kills (i love to see Ashe dying because my JiTB, or GP, Caitlyn, etc, is always fun LOL)
Why Deceive last?
Well, i use this spell when im in danger, if you gonna die, get gank or something,use Deceive and run away, thats why i get it at lvl 4, and then max at end, you can also use it, and get stealth, then use your Two-Shiv Poison and kill some enemy with low HP , try it :).
Well, it hits alot when he explote, so , you want to use it being smart, (if you dont know, you can controle your Clone with Alt key) when an enemy is defending some point, Hallucinate on a brush or aout of his vision range, and send your Clone to atack him, (of course if your allies going too, so they gonna think that your Clone is you) you can Hallucinate on the brush next to the points, just remember that your Clone cant go that far from you, so sometimes you must Deceive and run stealth, so your Clone can do his Job,
I dont know how to put Image Or videos, Ill try to put some soon, specially the JiTB position on Crystal Scar Map, a good JiTB can save you and your Allies.
Allows you to kill some Champ with low HP, so you can Ignite him, and atack some other Champ, while the Ignite Champ get kill.
Well.. i dont know what to say, you can chase, run, defend more quickly with this spell, is the best spell for Dominion.
How to Play
on Early Game, i start with the Ionian Boots of Lucidity, and cap Mid (Left or right), then i ghost to get top as soon as possibly, when you are on the Speed Burst, you gonna LvL Up, get Deceive so you can go Stealth to the top Point (Remember that Neutral Points give Steath detection for both teams), if your team get the point, put a Jack In The Box close to the point, push the other Mid point (i dont remember the name of the points srry xP), and when you get money for your Fiendish Codex , Recall and buy it, the return Top, and Defend or Push , remember to put your Jack In The Box and work with your team.
IF your team not get the Top Point, you will get dead, haha, you can choice here, you can help bot, and get the enemy Bot Point, or you can push top with your team, always being smart, remember that AP Shaco cant do much with Auto Atacks, use ur Jack In The Box to push enemy team, stack some Jack In The Box ( between the Top Point, and Mids points ( clear? lol) )so the enemy team cant get help from his partners, without getting hurt.
you can also Defend Very well, with your Jack In The Box and your Deceive + Two-Shiv Poison combo, you can atack and stealth, from distance ( I dont use Auto-Atacks on AP shaco, i can Freak out enemy team with my Skills) and get safe, remember you are pretty squishy.
Well, hope you like this Build, is my first one, so sorry if im not explaining that much, or if my English suck, i try my best, please rate this, but first try it, any suggestion, name it, thats all, peace :).
