After realising my orginal Shen build was well out of date (pre Shen nerd), Shen - You tank they die, I decided to see if anyone had made a half decent one. After looking around I found that the sunfire cape Shen build was the highest rated and I just laughed, its a good build if your not planning to tank!

If you want the reasons behind my masteries, runes etc take a look at my other guide ->

Flash / Cleanse because flash works far to well with Shens dash to not have it and cleanse along with merc treads and banshees veil makes you undebuffable.

Other choices are run, ignite and exhaust if it suits your team

The items for Shen

Start out with a dorans shield and an hp potion

Next you want to buy merc treads 99% of the time, if the enemy team is pure melee feel free to grab ninja tabis. The magic resist and the debuff resist is amazing so buy merc treads.

Randiun's Omen will be your next item for solid defence and an aoe slow for intiating team fights (click the item)

Bansees Veil will be next for the magic resist and the debuff resist

The next item or items you want to get are purely situationally based, I have listed a bunch of possible items that I would buy. As you play Shen more you will find out which items work in different situations against different teams.

If they are caster heavy grab a Force of nature or if their melee is doing alot of damage to you grab a thornmail or sunfire cape. Frozen mallet gives nice hp and some damage and the guardian angel gives reasonable tanking stats and it will revive you after you die.

Remember theres no perfect tank build but there are good tanks, those are the players that have tried everything, played around with builds to find out what works best in situations.

NoNos on Shen

Warmogs - one day you will find out why you just don't do it

Aegis of legion - mixed thoughts about this but its really not a good tanking item, make the support get it eg Kayle Soraka etc

Dps items - Shens not a carry build him as he is made to be played please

If your wanting to learn tips to become a good Shen check my build below, it has every tip and trick in the book on there.
