Introduction

hi guys!
My summoner name is Numsehul(euw) and this is my guide of how to play shaco. I have played a lot of RANKED Shaco games in season 3 and lots of normal in season 2. im 2,3k elo ( diamond )
What got me into playing shaco is, he is fun and can juke easily. He had stealth and have a difficult playstyle.

This is a guide about how to play shaco as a squishy AD assassin, who can delete an enemy adc and win by juking and outplaying your enemy.

Season 3 statsSeason 4 stats atm

Jungle Changes

Shaco is one of the fastest jungle clearer with his JITB but shaco has manaproblems and lack of sustain + the jungle changes have made the first clear hard to survive with over 50% hp for a decent shaco player, but if you let you tank the first hit, and let the box tank the next 2 hits. You will manage to almost take no hits by buff.
- patch 4.1 the jungle items now gives sustain.

The new camp in s4 is the Wight. You shouldn't be doing the Wight as shaco in the early stages of the game, because you will lose too much hp. Instead just kill Wraiths and wolves and counter jungle ur enemy or gank. Shaco is dependent on ganking, he needs to get gold. You can get gold in jungle too, but you will lack in sustain unless u got ur lizard, but why farm when u easily can kill ur enemy.

SHACO - Early,mid and lategame

Shaco is a very fun champion, he is a champion who needs to be there, when the enemies least expect it. Shaco is very squishy, so he can be taken down fast, if focused.

In early game Shaco should put pressure on lanes and on the enemy jungler. He should try to get himself fed and his laners. Around 10 min or when he has lizard, he should be able to solo dragon.

Midgame you should try forcing objects, - splitpushing or teamfighting, which one u are best at. try get easy kills by killing enemy squishy targets, when they are alone

late game : Splitpush, if not so fed - if fed go for mage or adc


Guide Top

Ganking

When you gank, you have to stay enough far away, so your poof/smoke doesn't get seen by the enemy
(bad picture, but this shows you can gank from purple side and reverse if blue)

Splitpush shaco

What is splitpush.
plit pushing revolves around the idea of your team keeping the attention of the enemy team while one of your teammates is pushing a lane (usually one of the side lanes) as far and as fast as they can before the enemy team realizes what's happening and comes after them.

The idea is to stall the enemy team at some location while one of your teammates pushes a lane takes a tower or two and maybe an inhibitor and when they come to defend their tower, your team will make a move in mid or smething. IF the enemy dont respond to your pushing just push to their inhib/nexus

Another splitpush tac are, when you split and you force an enemy come top, then u run to ur team and start a teamfight, which u most likely should be able to win since its 4v5
