Under construction!!

Its not ready yet,it will be waaay more longer so be patient.Tommorrow program is to explain some items(i have to learn to my English language exam).One of my frinds said,its not a bad guide,but it has a serious problem,the champion what i wrote about:Shaco.Its not played,thats why i wrote a new build to him what works,i want people to play this champ again.But maybe he was right,an ap shaco guide has no future on mobafire....I dont know what should i say,i feel some people just f*cking me up for no reason,or not reading the whole guide,or just dont try it they just say:Oh,AP Shaco WTF??NOOB!!VOTE DOWN!

Introduction

Hi Guys and Girls :)

This is my first build ever,so be a bit patient with me.I tried some days ago this AP/Hybrid Shaco, and it worked well.You dont think "ooh,its another crazy ap shaco,staying in the brush and putting boxes down,not farming at all,or doing anything,build a paper "champion" who is useless without his boxes".No.I want to make a Hybrid shaco with some AP and magic pen.So lets read a bit :)


Guide Top

To know your champion

Shaco is a really annoying and slippery champion with this Q and R.You need to know how much damage you can do.I reccommend toplane instead of midlane,because on toplane you can use the brushes better,you dont really need to ward that much,just put down a box and you are a bit safer.Use your knife as many times as you can.Dont forget you passive.You do 20% more damage when the enemy shows his back.Its not just bonus damage with you autoattack,but also with you skills.Use the brushes.If you stay in the top brushes,and sometimes run out for a E,your enemy wont follow you in the brush because he thinks there are a lot of boxes(maybe yes,maybe not).It makes you harrassing the enemy a lot easier(but with this tactic you lose farm...)You can use your ult to dodge spells,such as Karhus or Caitlyn ult,or Ashe W so use it.

Pros / Cons


Pros

Good assasin
Stealth
Funny :)
Nice mid game
hard to gank

Cons

Dont have a lot of HP
Not that good lategame
Dont have too much burst
Your cooldowns wont be lower,despite of you level up the spell(expect ult)


Guide Top

Summoner spells

I usually take Ignite and Flash,but if you are brave enough you can try for example Ignite Teleport,or Ignite Exhaust,since you Deceive is like a Flash.

I recommend these masteries,its agressive a bit but you will make a lot of damage.This is the most used masteries for AP Carries.

You can also go 9/0/21,magic pen in offense and cooldown reduction in utility,with some runes you will have a nice amount of CDR early,but i will explain it in the rune section.

Skill Sequence

Ability Sequence
1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18

I usually take boxes first because it can give you an easy first blood or you can take enemy jungle camps.If you are scared of the enemy jungler(for example Lee Sin)you can take deceive first.I dont like maxing W because enemies wont run into the bushes like mad.


Guide Top

Abilities

Passive: Backstab

When the enemy champion or minion show its back to you,you do more damage
In my opinion:This is a good skill for bonus early kill damage,in late game it doesnt count that much.Lot of player dont know this,or know but they just dont care about it.For example i use my E on the enemy toplaner and he run back=i deal more damage

Q: Deceive

You jump for a short distance and you are stealth after the jump for a short time(3.5 sec).After the jump your next basic attack in 6 sec your autoattack will be a crit.
In my opinion:Maybe this is what makes shaco an annoyig and almost uncatchable champ.You can jump through walls and after that you are stealth.Its great escape skill isnt it?Well,after the jump your autoattack will be a crit.IT IS OP.Its good as an ap shaco too,mostly for the early 3-4 level(the crit with passive is huge)That is why for ad shaco you usually build an infinity edge.

W: Jack In The Box

You play a box what after a short time is stealth and stays there for a min.When an enemy minion or champion walks near it,it fears him and start shooting for 5 sec.After the 5 sec or if its destroyed,it dies.
In my opinion:It is the first skill you take with jungle shaco,and ap shaco aswell.Its a good damage,cc,and helps to "ward" your lane,also a good tool to counterjungle or to escape.Lot of ap shaco's main tool,to stay in the brush and stack 3 or 4 box and wait for an enemy.Against a clever enemy,or maybe against a not hard ****** enemy he wont go into brushes in lane,but good to have on eye on the jungler.After this chapter i will show some pictures,where you should put down boxes.

E: Two-Shiv Poison

You throw a knife,what slows the enemy.Also if your knife isnt on cooldown your autoattacks slow the enemy.Another "passive" is that you have the chance that the enemy minions and monsters miss there attacks.
In my opinion:In my ap shaco build it is you main damage dealing ability.Its a good tool to harass,run out of the bush and throw a knife,good damage,but "big" cooldown,thats why you need CDR.The passive slow also nice despite of you are not AD.

R: Hallucinate

You make a clone from yourself,it deals 50% less damage than you and dies after a short time.If it dies or he dont have more time,he throws knives around and deals aoe damage.
In my opninion:Its a good and usefull skill,some enemies doesnt recognise its just the clone,and uses up ingite,all skills or like this.It deals a lot of aoe damage,and also a funny ability.In team fights you send the clone in and it deals nice damage.With AD shaco the clone autoattack damage is more important,and it can be used to splitpush/backdoor as AD and as AP shaco aswell.And dont forget,you can dodge some skills with it(also with your Q),because when you use ult,after a half sec you cant be damaged.You can dodge for example Garen ult and Karhus ult too.Lets see saintvicious at 2:44

where to place you boxes

Level 1 jack in the boxes

Red-When you are at the blue side
Blue-When you are at the purple side


Guide Top

Items

I usually start with Doran's Ring and two Health Potion,because i like the extra AP early and manaregen. Boots of Speed also can be an option against some champs who has skillshot,for examp Lee Sin or Jayce .
Haunting Guise is a good first item because of the extra HP,Ap and Magic Pen(if you have money you can also buy a 2nd Doran's Ring ,but its not that important). Fiendish Codex is a good item for CDR and you can also build it into Nashor's Tooth or Deathfire Grasp .I always decide,how fed am I.If i am fed i buy Deathfire Grasp for the extra burst and AP.If i am behind or have just a small leade i buy Nashor's Tooth.After this,you have a lot of option.You can buy a Hextech Gunblade for the active damage and slow and the damage,a Zhonya's Hourglass , Guardian Angel for an almost sure escape after you died.If you want more HP I would reccommend Rylai's Crystal Scepter for the slow and healt,but with a hybrid shaco you have a lot of option.


Guide Top

Ranked Play

I only tried it in Silver and Gold and it worked well,i dont know how good it is in Diamond,but i dont think it is a bad pick.


Guide Top

Early game

Use your boxes to pressure toplane and ward,farm and harass with you E as soon as it comes back from cooldown,with the manaregen runes and masteries you wont really run out of mana.Care with ganks,because you dont have a lot of HP.


Guide Top

Mid game

You have some items now,CDR,magic pen,AP,HP.You can go a bit more agressive but dont go like a crazy man.Kill your toplane enemy if you can or gank mid or the enemy jungler.And farm.


Guide Top

Late game

Late game is a bit tricky for you.You need to be very carefully,use your E and W properly,and you clone to dodge spells,or to send in the fight and do some nice damage.Late game shaco is not that OP,it is good but not like a ryze or like this,but if you have feed you can 1 combo their ADC or AP carry.


Guide Top

End

It was a bit short,maybe i will update it but its too late now.I hope i could help to somebody,or at least you will have some funny games with this champ.Show me your ideas,and write comments about this "guide".Sorry if i failed english somewhere,but I am hungarian,and it very late(or very early?i dont know)
