Not Updated For Current Season
The masteries shown here are not yet updated for the current season, the guide author needs to set up the new masteries. As such, they will be different than the masteries you see in-game.
this is MY build,you are NOT immortal, you should be smart and careful, shaco is a assasin, not a tank, you are a glass cannon.
teleport: for fast relocations, fast shop, on twisted treeline i use ghost, cos its a smaller map
exhaust: when a shaco appear behind you that you do? run. thats what we want, shaco deal 25% more atack from behind (backstab), exhaust = more time = more damage, use exhaust only when your target is trying to run.
jack in the box (JBX): fine to kill some minions, excellent for aoe fear on team fights and excellent for delay your opponent we you are running from them, remember, after enter a fight ALWAYS put a JBX on your escape route.
deceive: excellent for chasing and scape, and to start your atack, try to use the bonus crit + backstab for more damage
two shiv-poison: nice for fights(passive) and for chasing (active - slow)
hallucinate: excellent ultimate, u can use it for tower dives, extra damage (on team fights this can save your as*!) u can deceive(not the skill) disables sending your clone first and then deceive(the skill) into the fight, use alt + right mouse button for control it, u can use it to help your scape (clone and real on different paths or u can order the clone to atack your opponent(he can a: atack the clone or b:run to your and the clone will damage him, you can always deceive+backstab if his life is low enough for a deceive+backstab+2sp(two shiv poison) combo kill.
try lane against non-tankers and non-disables, use your mana carefully, u should have deceive if need a scape, put some JBX in the bushes if the enemy use it a lot, JBX can deal some damage and lower your enemy life,use 2sp ONLY against glass heroes early for harass, or you can last hit minions if needed, when your enemy is with about 1/4 hp left u can hide in the bushes, deceive+backstab and exhaust if needed, remember to use the 2sp for more slow
gank is the key, eye on the map, gank all enemy with low life, and remember, if u push your lane, put some JBX in your scape route, always think on your scape route, and NEVER EVER forget your mana for deceive!
stay with your team, never start a team fight, always focus non-tankers first, use JBX for mass fear.
play smart, play some mind games with your enemy.
here 2 normal combos for shaco:
deceive+hallucinate after your enemy focus your clone, backstab and if he run, 2sp (recommend combo against disables that u know he will fight back, dont waste your clone if he dont fight back)
deceive+JBX+backstab+2sp (its a fast combo, and careful with minions, they can fuc* the JBX extra damage, with JBX fear, 2sp its only a nuke)
shaco is a squishy champion, but deals massive dps, tiamat+hallucinate can give you a fantastic AoE damage output against 1x2 fights or team fights, some times you can win a 1x2 fight, but u can trust luck
