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 there, my summoner name is Widal and I will be bringing to you a new look at Shaco. I found this build out one day while playing with my friend and I was just messing around. I came to find that it was an amazing build that was also fun and new to me. I hope you could use this build yourself and have a great time playing LoL.
I take flat AD red, flat Armor yellow, and flat attack speed blue. My quints are flat AD, because I do not like to wait for the levels to build up my power, but you personally could use per level runes and quints. You could also go with attack speed yellow, AP yellow, or CD reduction yellow in place of the armor yellows. I just pick armor yellows incase I want to jungle at the last second. You could also do armor pen quints and armor pen red if you would like, but I found that personally I don't like it.
The reason I go 21/0/9 is because it gives me the bonus to all the AD and AP damage and I still maintain the quick leveling up in the utility tree with a little longer bonus time to monster buffs. If you also play akali you could use that mastery page for this build, because that is what I based this mastery build off of myself.
If I am not jungling and this is a big difference, I get two shiv poison first. The reason is because of all the other full AP not hybrid, but full AP shacos out there, the whole boxes in bush thing is over rated and hard to pull off at higher levels. If I am jungling however, I will pick up jack in the box first and go to my starting point. Now for jungling I do the route of putting 1-2 boxes by golems and 3 by red buff. Then I smite the big wraith (the purple one) and run over to the golems and kill them. Make sure to always put a box behind your monster and as close as possible, that way they will turn around and you get your passive bonus. After golems go to red buff and kill it. I forgot to mention that I start off with 5 health pots and cloth armor. After red buff you can now either gank or go to base then gank. The rest of the forest is cake you kill wolves then blue buff and repeat. If you are good you can also counter jungle if you want. Back to lane shaco now. You get two shiv poison first and go into a lane with a partner, not all of us can go into a 1v1 or 2v2 lane and win with shaco so know your limitations please. At level 2 get Deceive and at level 3 get your Jack in the box. Max two shiv first followed by Deceive and JITB. Also get your ultimate at level 6, I hate it when I see a different shaco get his ultimate at other level like 8 or 10(trust me it does happen on occasion).
I personally take Exhaust and Ignite for lane. I will take smite and exhaust for jungle. The reason for this is because shaco already has a built in flash that will stealth him so you should not fear flashing away from people most of the time. If you are still learning shaco then by all means pick flash if you want too. If you want any other summoner spell you should make sure it will be worth it and not a waste. For example never get clairvoyance, This is the job of the support character and if you do not have one then do not try to be the hero and pick it as a spell because it will mess you up for the rest of the game.
NEVER TANK A TEAM FIGHT. You may have 3k health, but this does not mean you can tank. All this means is your a healthy huge damage dealing monster that everyone on the enemy team will want to kill. So in team fights let the "tank" initiate then follow in and use your ult automatically. I normally use deceive then my ult then two shiv, drop a JITB, and repeat as my abilities come off CD. This will normally result in you either dieing and doing crazy amounts of damage or it will result in you getting a double-penta kill and aceing the enemy team. Unless your team mates are complete idiots or the enemy team knows you are raping their face, you will win. When I discovered this build, the teams I was one were horrible and never did much in fights.
Can do a lot of damage
not too squishy
very easy to escape
Enemies will go for you first
Hard to counter CC's
This build allows you to have a lot of HP and huge amounts of damage. In the end you will normally win and end up with a score ranging from 10/5/7-20/4/15. It is just that crazy. I really wanted to let this be known, but did not know how untill I made an account with moba. Hope you enjoyed the guide and maybe some day I will have more detailed guides for other champions and footage of games or screen shots.
