Welcome to my Shaco ad build.

Guide Top


Well my rune choice is very simple:i take 6 Greater Mark of Desolation and 3 Greater Mark of Attack Speed for more dps and to kill tanky enemies easily.My glyph runes are all Greater Glyph of Attack Damage ,it looks kind squishy but its up to you what you will take.I prefer 3 defensive seals Greater Seal of Armor and 6 Greater Seal of Health because shaco has few hp because he is a massive dps jungler usually.Quints are all Greater Quintessence of Desolation because i can kill the squishy tanks easier.

I have used a mastery tree of 21/9/0.I prefer using offense and using some defence just for bonus health,armor and magic resistance.However you can use a different tree depending on your playstyle.

I usually start with Boots of Speed so i can kill and escape easier and i get 3 Health Potion because i want to have some sustain early game.Then get a Ruby Crystal for sustain reasons especially if you are in top lane.Then upgrade your boots to Berserker's Greaves for bonus attack speed.Then upgrade your Ruby Crystal to Frozen Mallet.It is a good item because you gain a 700 hp sweet bonus,a 20 ad bonus and most of all a cc(crowd control).Each basic attack slows the target and make you easier to kill someone.After that buy a Madred's Bloodrazor because it gives you ad,attack speed and armor and an amazing passive that makes you kill minions and monsters easily.Then buy an Infinity Edge to make your q better and of course your e your ulti and your basic attacks because of the critical chance and the sweet 250% crirical damage.Buy a The Black Cleaver also because you gain more attack speed,ad and to reduce your enemies armor up to 3 stacks.So if you do the math its 3 stacks and each one reduces the enemies armor by 15.So its 45 armor reducement,that means that you can make a Thornmail has much less defensive power.But still dont get so happy because it reduces the enemys armor by 45.That DOESNT MEAN that you cannot die.So pick your fights carefully,play smart and try to avoid going 3v1 or 2v1 because you think you are chuck norris.And the last thing i rarely reach that far is a Guardian Angel.Don't underestimate it because it can turn a 1v1 fight easily.For example you go against an enemy master yi.You die and he has 100 hp left and your guardian angel is reviving you.He will probably fall back so that will save your life or if he is squishy he may want some more.So punish him with a kill so he wont do the same thing.And it gives some armor and magic resistance.NOTE:THIS BUILD WAS MADE BY ME BUT YOU CAN CHANGE EVERYTHING YOU WANT IN YOUR MATCHES.You dont have to follow it step by step.

Skill Sequence

Oh the skills.I prefer starting with the Jack In The Box because it can deal damage and can be used as a ward too.Then i unlock my Deceive because i can teleport and be stealthed too.But after that i ugrade my Two-Shiv Poison so i can deal more damage from far.Thats all from the skills but keep in mind that you must use your Hallucinate in smart ways.For example you can ulti inside a bush and send your clone outside and he may believe that you are the real Shaco.So he will attack the clone and kill him and lose much health.Then teleport and use your Two-Shiv Poison to slow him and then kill him if you can.But even if you scare him thats fine too.

Summoner Spells

The summoner spell Exhaust is very good and Ignite is very good because it can deal true damage per second.What does an ad shaco need more than this?
Also Flash is a very good spell but i dont take it because shaco has already a built in Flash,but if you need something more to escape and chase pick Flash.Also I would recommend Ghost because it gives you movement speed.
