Introduction

Oh Hai tharre! i see you want to learn how to play Shaco, unfortunately you have come to the wrong place, this is not supposed to be the ultimate guide of l33t Skllz, but a little tiny string to pull you in, what i concider, the right way. i hope you enjoy your read, and leave consatructive criticism when you're finnished!

Runes

First lets kick of with Runes


Greater Mark of Desolation = Pretty standard for a Physical DPS, Need i say more?

= Some may find this an odd choise, but i like em, and they help against shaco's manaproblems really good, there may be better opptions, but this works for me.

= i concider this to be the best choise for Shaco, it gives great CDR, and the more you can use your stealth the better. Now, you may ask why i don't use flat CDR Glyphs, and there is one simple answer: i don't belive that i need the CDR early on in the game and at lvl 13 the CDR per Level runes are equal to the flat runes.

Items

Now this is the good part, this is where i tell you which items you need to win, and if you don't buy these exact items you will fail! * end of meaningless rant*

No, if you want to be good, you have to learn to adapt to the fight, a good exaple is the you want to build these after how the enemy is set up, versus a beefy team you want Madred's Bloodrazors and if the enemy is full of squish, just build a , now the items i have suggested tend to work very well alover, but as i said, you need to adapt.

An item i would very much recomend is Sheen, the increased damage on you next attack after an ability is used is pretty sexy, and it also boost your Boxes a bit

Team Work

There is a couple of things i want to tel you about working with a team:
Rule 1. You do not initiate a team fight
Rule 2. Focus their Squishies, especially those delicious carrys.
Rule 3. Place as many JitB as possible during and before a team fight


And a little tip: this may be wrong, but it seems that your clone always apply on-hit effects

Summary

So this has been my little page of hints and tips for shaco, hope you enjoyed it. remeber to rate and comment if i did something wrong or if you want to give me a tip or two.

i may do an UPGRADE!!! in the future, but for now this is as far as this guide gets.
