Introduction

Hey, I just wanted to say that this is my first build that I have posted, so if you dont like anything or you want to have more information, please contact me at adri445@hotmail.com.

P.S. Sorry for any spelling mistakes, and for the lack of a good rune build. <---Dont have any runes so I just put random ones.:(

Masteries

The magic penetration, the cooldown reduction and the ability power are all very helpfull at the beginning of the game, harrassing and eventually killing your lanning opponents even though you arent building ap. The tank masteries are there to obviously help you with your role as the tank.

Skill Sequence

Maxing vorpal blade first is extremely important with Shen's early game because this is most likely the only time you will get kills with non-ap Shen. Vorpal blade is extremely annoying and deals a great amount of damage too squishies and even there tankier champions without their items. The reason you want to max out your shadow dash second is to fullfill your role as a support tank. Your friends getting wrecked by a Graves? Taunt him at the beggining of the team fight and problem solved! the taunt is also the reason why I recommend adding a thornmail somehere in your item build if the other team has a powerfull ad.

Items

This item build is my favorite Shen tank build because it gives you ALOT of survivability, starting very early in the game with the aegis of the legion. Remember you dont need to get the sunfire cape first. As I said before, if there are alot of powerfull ad's on the other team, slip in a thornmail to shut them down.

Pros / Cons

Pros:
Great survivability early, and late game.
Awsome harrass game in laning phase.
Great support for your team throughout the game.
Can really shut down the enemy carry.
With teleport and your ultimate, push towers while never missing a team fight.
Cons:
Very low damage dealt late game.
Your shield is almost useless.

Team Work

Shen is the best support tank and so if you have a good team, there is no doubt Shen is the tank to go. His ultimate, his taunt and is vorpal blade are all great support spells.
