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 guys, this is my first build, hope you will like it as me ;)) . Build is for nice dmg from back, with awesome crits and autoattack damage. He dont need mana so we wont buy items for mana and ap. Just Infinity Edge and something for attack speed (life steal too). This build helped me a lot, many people think, that AP Shaco is better but truth is, that this build will help you win many games. I decided to make guild to help other people with mastering Shaco to show you, that this build is so nice. Just try it, and u will see that you will win all games (if you have good team) .
Pros / Cons
-Passive for +25% damage - Backstab
-Great late game damage
-Best for killsteals,ganking and for 3vs3 matches
-Also good jungle
-His Code: Jack In The Box is nice antiganking spell (90sec camper :D )
-So small survivability
-Weak hp, armor, resists (But Frozen mallet can be good choice)
Masteries + Sum.Spells
Masteries i choosed 21/0/9
ATTACK : For crits, exhaust, penetration and damage.
UTILITY : For better hp/mana regeneration, exp gained and neutra buffs length.
Best for you is Exhaust that help you to catch ur enemy and good combination with Ignite that help you if your enemy runs from battle with low hp.
You also can use :
Flash - This help you running out from battle or cathing enemy.
Ghost - Same use as flash.
Teleport - Good spell only for 5vs5 if you need get fast to your lane or ganking.
Smite - When u are jungling, but this build isnt created for this type of shaco ;)
I choosed here runes for Armor penetration, crit. chance and CD reduction.
So Greater Mark of Desolation will nice help you with first blood for penetrate big armor champs. Needed for all melee dmg hereos.
Greater Glyph of Scaling Cooldown Reduction is for CD reduction, that will almost help you if u are jungle (when u are placing Jack In The Box. Or for faster recharge of ulti.
Greater Seal of Critical Chance is for increase your crit. chance.
Greater Quint of Desolation is again for Penetration, very good for shaco.
Playing + Items
So Im starting with Boots of Speed 2x Health Potion and 1x Mana Potion. Run into the bush and place as many Jack In The Box as you can, and wait with teammates for enemies. I still get FB cause first get feared and fired by these jacks. After fb try to avoid spell/attacks of enemies and stand on line long. Then go buy Boots of Mobility and go back to your line. When u reach 1850 G or 2300 G .. go and buy B. F. Sword and Vampiric Scepter for lifesteal.
In lvl 6 u can start ganking. Shaco is very good kill steal heroe, so u farm and get feeded alot if you know play him good. When u reach your Infinity Edge you can go kill dragon with teammates. You still cant solo him cause u dont have enough speed (or u can solo him with your clone). When your EQ is : Boots of Mobility, Infinity Edge, The Bloodthirster and Phantom Dancer u can try Frozen Mallet for +700hp and +20dmg. It will grant you more survaviblity and attacks that slows other champs. Last slot is on your choice maybe next infinity or something for armor/resist.
Then just try to avoid 1vs2 cause u loose anyway, shaco is weak in this battles. You can do 1vs1/2vs3/3vs3 etc. Dont risk, play smart and let go off your ego, OR u will just feed enemy team.. If you are going to die, just Deceive out of battle and if enemy hp is low, come back and finish him with bonus crit.chance.
Shaco is very good farmer too. With his passive backstap spell +25% damage (from behind) and your crits, you can nicely kill minions with last hits from behind. Also you can use your Jack In The Box this will help u nice with farming.
Jack In The Box - Place in into all bushes, when its not on CD. It will save your life many times. But dont forget on your mana.
Wins with it - 95% of my games played
These games were made today, that was in a row 4/4 with shaco.
Here i was bored :D ... i feeded a little :(
But Madred's Bloodrazor is also good item for armor and dmg to big HP tankns.
Guys, hope you like my guide for Shaco.My first try of making the build.
Please comment end vote, thanks. (After trying it :) )
Play for fun ;P
