Hey guys this is my first build on Mobafire. I play Shaco Quite often but have not yet learned to jungle. I created this build myself and because of Shaco's great early game and strong mid-game he is exceptional at laning. He's moderately squishy but his moves allow him to be quick and agile and escape near-death. Shaco is fun to play, but a little difficult to play.
-Slippery character easy to escape with
-High damage output
-Good early and mid-game
-low ult cooldown
-Easily can take down squishy characters like Yi or Teemo
-Great for ganks
-Jack in the box has long cooldown
-mana runs out easily
-Runs funny :P
-Bad late game
I take Armor Pen. marks as late game he needs to be able to take down the more armored characters. Armor seal because it increases his durability and takes away some of his sqishiness. Mana regen glyphs because Shaco easily runs out of mana when stacking turrets or harassing with two shiv poison and always having Decieve is helpful. Attack damage quints because it makes him able to take down people in pre-minion bush wars.
I choose these items for a strong late game Shaco. Although Thornmailcan counter his High damage output. He builds straight AD so that his crit is high because he gets and automatic crit when using decieve. If their team is all AD try building thornmail. Ap nukes? Banshees Veil or Hexdrinker.Never follow builds exactly. use them as a guide to your build but you can add or get rid of things that seem useless.
I get Two-Shiv poison at level one and max it at 9. Jack in the box at Two and max it second. Then Decieve at 4 maxing it last. Hallucinate I get at 6,11, and 16 of course. Two-SHov poison passively slows unless its activated in which case it will slow upon contact but not continue to slow with each basic attack until off cooldown. Two-shiv poison is great for finishing kills and dealing high damage. Stack jack in the boxes in bushes or areas where minions wont trigger them. Stacking 4 or 5 could easily kill a champion in a matter of seconds. Decieve is great for escapes and surprise attacks. Hallucinates low cooldown makes it an Ult that you can pop to get away or to attack. The clone can be nontrolled by Alt-clicking and when turret diving send him in first. Hallucinte has a moment of .5 seconds where shaco disappears and them him and a clone reappear. in that .5 seconds Shaco is invulnearable. Able to dodge Ezeal ults Ashe Arrows, and Karthus's ult.
Smart casting is a must! Go into options, key bindings then scroll down until you find smart cast 1-4. Then assign your Q,W,E,and R. Smart casting is like shift clicking but easier. You hover over the champion and press the button to use the ability. Dashes or Toggles you just click it to activate and you'll dash to the cursor. Smart casting is the best way to go. It eliminates the gap between clicking and targeting your ability.
Decieve is basically flash so flash isn't needed. You can also use Teleport or Ghost for Shaco.
