I have used many shaco builds previously as he is one of my favourite chars in LoL- AP, AD etc.
The AP build never takes advantage of Shacos decieve as does not damage enough.
The AD build does not take advantage of JITB and Shiv
The Hybrid build is the best build for shaco as Shacos abilities need both damage and attack power to be effective
- Two Shiv (AP)
- Hallucinate (AD)
Buy Sapphire Crystal and 2 HP pots and run to get the golem buff by taking the golem you will level and get a headstart, and possibly a FB.
the buff will allow you to spam abilities
If you are up against aggressive opponents, then let them push until they are at your tower, and Decieve/Shiv for huge amount of dmg thanks to the crit runes.
With proper harass during the first few lvls you will show that this lane is YOUR territory, and any attempts at trying to take it will result in death.
IF you on the other hand are getting pushed back, with your lanepartner doing little to nothing, then just stay defensive.
This is the time where shaco can shine. when people group up and start team fights, go into lanes that do not have any champions and attempt to push a tower.
join teamfights but do not initiate. come in from bushes and get in get out quick then attack again. DO NOT GET TARGETED. Finish your builds and rape.
As a side note: this build will not make you an amasing shaco player, it is the person who makes the champion.
