Introduction

Shaco is a stealth assassin and extremely fun to play with.although most of shaco players build him attack damage,speed and lifesteal, lately I begun to play shaco as ap and had some good scores with the build that I'll show u next.


Guide Top

About the abilities:

Deceive:use it cautiously while u have low mana capacity and it costs a lot.use it as an escape mechanism* and chase also.

*when running away with low life aim the exact different direction from which u are running away from so that u trick them.cAuse remember u are the demon jester

Jack in the box: jacks are shacos' best friends use them defensively as u run away so that u fear chaser but mostly use them for ambushes.

*if u play pro-like shaco try placing jitb one over the other so all jacks will aim same target when firing.later on I'll tell where to place them.

two shiv-poison:that's a great chasing/slowing/last hitting ability(that's all)

Hallucinate(ultimate):this ability is your reputation
U can scout u can "kamikaze" people,trick people and "ulties"*

*u can counter ignite,exhaust,ashes's arrow,kartus's lase and etc

The tricky part with shaco is to make your enemies comet bushes or wherever your jacks are.to achieve that u need experience.u will have to dmg yourself intentionally in order to attract your enemies

Item explanation:

I like to begin with an amplifying tome and a up potion for survivability in my lane till reach enough money to buy boots of ludicity.

I choose this boots because of the cooldown(15%)
Next item is friendish codex. With this item your mana issues are over and have 10% cooldown also(15+10=25%)Later buy narshors touth and also have 40% cooldown.that means jitb every 9sec
Now do the math:90 sec(maximum time of life of jacks):9(cooldown of jacks)give u 10 jacks

Each jack fires for 5sec about 8 bullets each one dealing 115
So
8 times 115 is 920
920 times 10 is 9200dmg+ap
Now lts let's say some of the bullets miss+armor+magic.resist+end of the fear duration
About 3600 dmg(if placed correctly)enough to kill any1


Guide Top

game stages

Early game:
while your first ability is jitb u have no escape mechanism no boots no nothing.for that reason u must be very careful and conscious About your actions.if u have no ranged champ in your lane try not to overextend.finally place all your jitb in one place so that ur chances of killing s1 will be maximum

Mid game:
This is when your enemies will fear you when they see you in your minimap,and they will start to plan 5v1 gangs try to Chang lanes as I said before so that they will have a hard time to focus you.

Late game

Stealth stealth stealth
Kill kill kill
Run run run


Guide Top

Shaco's best allies:

-blitzcrank
-singed
-alistar
-lee sin
-fiddle
-(and mostly anyone who can grab,fear,taunt)


Guide Top

Tips:

-try play with shaco in 5v5 while he dominates in late and early game if played correctly

-try change lanes (from upper lane to down lane and vice versa).thats because when they see your score they will start to play very cautiously and will not fall in your ambushes

Item explanation:
I like to begin with an amplifying tome and a up potion for survivability in my lane till reach enough money to buy boots of ludicity.
