Threats to Shen with this build
|Jarvan IV||Even if Jarvan is an armor penetrating champion he is weakest of all. Doesn't matter if he is kept down.|
|Yasuo||You can avoid his basic attacks with your Spirit's Refuge which are important weapons for him against you.|
|Katarina||You can easily end up her ultimate with your taunt. Then she will be unarmed.|
Hello everyone i'm ChrusherNinja. Despite my new participating to you I have decided to make a guide for Shen which is my main League of Legends champion.
I'm going to give you some directions with my build recipe. I wish it would help you to learn how to be a Chrusher Ninja as I aimed you to profess.
Please pay attention to directions below and when you have finished to read and used it in game, tell me my wrong directions and faults by making comments with fair words.
Because, not only me but also other authors making enormously effort to give you something helpful.
I have said too much lets get started. :)
Greater Seal of Armor
Greater Mark of Attack Speed
Greater Mark of Attack Damage
Greater Glyph of Magic Resist
Greater Quintessence of Cooldown Reduction
Greater Quintessence of Movement Speed
Greater Quintessence of Attack Speed
If you have ever played Shen once or twice you must know which values getting improve his power in game.
Seal class runes' prominent speciality is armor, you know.
Greater Seal of Armor: We have to give our Tank Champion some armor in case he complete team fights succesfully in other saying don't be slayed easily.
Mark class runes' featured speciality is attack functions.
1. Greater Mark of Attack Speed
His Twilight Assault gives him attack speed and really big magical damage. This is an awesome skill fortification that gives Shen immediate superiority on fight. If we increase our starting attack speed with runes it gives us chance not being have to buy items including attack speed on market.
2. Greater Mark of Attack Damage
Shen is a Fighter-Tank Melee Champion, as you know. It makes him a needer Champion to have starting more AD point than base AD point. He needs it when slaying minions early game too.
Glyph class runes's featured superiority than other runes is magical improvements.
Greater Glyph of Magic Resist: As I always say our champion is a tank. This make him a needer Champion to have Magic Resist too.
Firstly I had to say; this class of runes has most powerful superiority than other runes. And we want to benefit levelly. (Balanced Ninja Voice Tone)
1. Greater Quintessence of Cooldown Reduction: It makes Shen more survivable with his passive.
2. Greater Quintessence of Movement Speed: It makes Shen more mobile when we want to use his Twilight Assault's effect against his enemy.
3. Greater Quintessence of Attack Speed: It gives Shen more superiority when he could active his Twilight Assault's effect against his enemy.
Thats all about Runes on my guide lets go another chapter. :)
Fury to buff him with attack speed effect being given by Twilight Assault
Feast for Lane Durability
Natural Talent to buffBasic Attacks and Skills being improved by Ability Power.
Oppressor to buff his basic attacks damage which are improved by Twilight Assault's effect against his enemies.
Unyielding Our champion is a tank and it is necessary to tank champions for durability in fights.
Tough Skin more for durability against minions otherwise, less value of damage of against champions.

Perseverance for durability and regeneration after fights having too much damage.
Swiftness for keeping away and not being slowed when chase by enemy champions

Why we should buy this? Which item provides how much superiority?
It is the core item of Shen
It provides both +50 armor, +500 HP and magic damage based on level per second as well.
This item provides to improve your last attacks while slaying minion with it's magic damaging (to enemy units around) per second passive.
His Shadow Dash's damage is increased by Maximum Health Point so Sunfire Cap's providings fit Shen's kit with all of these.
It is another important item for [Shen]
It provides to him +%10 cooldown reduction. It means using more Ki Barrier.
It gives him +500 HP. It means increasing his Shadow Dash's physical damage.
It provides him an improvement all of his health restorations (like HP regeneration, lifesteal) with it's unique passive.
It gives him +55 magic resist it's necessary for being tanky.
It is not only agressive but also a tanky item.
It provides to Shen +450 HP. It means an increment on physical damage of Shadow Dash
It provides extra physical damage depending on % of Max. HP.
It provides base health regeneration. It means more durability on lane.
It adds physical damage to your next basic attack, in a bigger cone than passive effect, after being actived.
It provides health regeneration. It means more durability on lane.
It has a passive giving you impressive regenaration.
It gives you +800 HP. It means an increment on his Shadow Dash's physical damage.

All of this are important (even can being said core) items that improving Shen's skills, power and effectiveness in the game.
To select this Summoner Spell gives you more map activity and roaming with your ultimate Stand United.
It provides to him making combinating tricks with his Shadow Dash.
Not recommended but it sometimes can useful against using less one of all restorating effects (HP regenerating, lifestealing, spellwamping) champions.
Pros / Cons
|-With his passive Ki Barrier he has very much durability against enemy top lane player.
-With his Shadow Dash he can taunt his enemies. With his Twilight Assault he can slow enemies.
-With his ultimate Stand United he can protect his teammates even if not being beside them.
-With his Spirit's Refuge you can provide self protecting and your teammates safety from every basic attacks coming to you and your teammates.
|-His energy is sometimes counted as a pro, sometimes counted as a con.
-If you have responsible teammates when you use your ultimate Stand United you hardly ever complete fight unsuccessful but if not, you will be disappointed by your teammates.
-Not having a fighting ultimate is always a matter when you have reached level 6 and your enemy has opened his/her not global ultimate on 1v1.
-Leaving your own lane frequently makes sense at earlier parts of the game.
While playing Shen you can use his Stand United on your teammate to dive under turrets to get an important kill or fight. Till Shen's focusing time has filled, enemy at the middle of aimed fight would be dealing with your teammates. And you would use his Shadow Dash on your enemy/enemies as soon as appoint immediately.
-Starting a Team Fight-
As both of team's champions positioning and looking for a formation mistake from enemy team before the fight, you would be looking for a positioning mistake too. And your first aim would be catching enemy team's AD carry. As soon as you have found out your assault chance you would move to taunt enemies(especially AD carry) with Shen's Shadow Dash and get your kill at the right time. Not to forget to active his Twilight Assault to gain extra basic attack magical damage and his Spirit's Refuge to protect yourself and teammates from enemies' basic attacks during 1.75 seconds as soon as you make the first move.
Flash+Shadow Dash Trick
Usually while we are playing Shen and chasing our enemies even if we use [flash] and Shadow Dash we can't get at our enemies. At this time we can use our [flash] not to past your enemies but onto your enemies during our Shadow Dash's animation. This would be more helpful. I'm going to try to show you with little icons how can you use this fancy trick as much as i can. Riven is going to be a target model of our lesson below.
Greetings again my friends. I'm CrusherNinja and I tried to transfer all my experience about this awesome guy which is my main champion ( Shen). I wish it would help you in game or within a discussion about Shen in a social group at least. I did make a lot of effort and I wish you don't remember to honor with your comments and upvotes. If I made a mistake during my expression please let me know what is it.
''Stay with balance.''
