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 for watching MY Shaco-Guide. I hope some will go here out with new ways playing this Champion I like so much. Please read it through beacause I made this as Free-User and spent much time on it to explain my opinion how you should play him.
PLEASE WATCH OUT WHAT I AM ABOUT TO SAY!
I start by the Red-Buff so I can gank bot/top or mid right after I killed the Lizard and the Wraiths (the Ghostlike monsters) or the Golems. With this Method you can even prevent a Gank by your Red-Buff because nearly no Shaco-jungler starts by the Red-Buff and later you can safely get your Blue-Buff after the Gank (where you maybe were able to get an assist or even a kill) and after you used your Blue-Portion.
After you got the Blue-Buff you can start jungling like you allways would to as Shaco.
My Masterie is like you see a 20/1/9, focusing on fast and strong attacks with high CD, because i think even as AD-Shaco you will need this high CD on your Abilities, witch will demolish the enemy.
Attackspeed so you can speed up your Time you need to jungle.
Armor per lvl so you can hold out longer, longer the game takes.
CD so you can nearly spam you Abilities.
Life so you can hold out the early ganks.
Why this Items and not others... Therfore I have only one Answer: I personelly would prefer them BUT what you, as the Readers, are going to change so it matches your playstile doesn't interest me cause i think he is a Silent Assasin who demolishes lonely persons with high AttackSpeed and annoying tricks so he can stay alive even if the prey is something like a nasty Tank.
Now what you surely want to know: Why not Infinity Edge?!?
I won't say that Infinity Edge is a bad or good choice but personelly i think only Carrys can profit from it because they do lategame allways hit with crit. In this build with Shaco it will burst his Q but further only the Crits will profit which will happen from time to time cause of the low Crit-Chance.
Many Shcoplayer know this but there is no real plan to let Shaco go along with other players. He is in my opinion more like a Champ which goes for lonely enemys and attacks only here and there in a big Teamfight because he can't hold out long enough.
My opinion is that you let the Sololane being pushed as long as you are not there. By the time you get to the Sololane the enemy should be rather far away from his tower so your teammate needs then to go aggro and attack some second before you actually reach the lane so you can jump in and start an Surpriseattack on the enemy.
This was my opinion how you can play Shaco in a decent way. Hope you learned something new so it will improve your way of playing.
Good Luck and Have Fun guys by playing pranks. ;)
