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.
Welcome to Dominion summoners! And thank you for looking at my guide:3 Yes I'm going to say the lame thing "Shaco is one of the best ******** champions out there". But hell, it's true brah. And yes. I'm going to do the troll language like that often. Anyways please enjoy my guide.
AD versus AP
When I play 5v5 or 3v3, I normally go mostly AD with a little AP. The reason being is that Shaco's boxes WILL get you many kills in your career. But they also have there disadvantages. The major disadvantages are that they only last 90 seconds, have a small range, minions trigger them often, high cooldown. Except they still have major advantages. Major advantages are the fact they fear, which can really screw someone over, they do decent damage, and I can tower dive with them whenever someone is at 1-6 bars left. I personally prefer, in dominion, strictly AD. The boxes in that such intense environment are the last things on my mind. You can't really chill in one place with no consequence and just keep placing them. My main damage dealer is my Q crit, my melee attacks, and my E spell, which BTW, brah, I spam that **** like I don't have mana to worry about. (which you do and its important to monitor it before you go into a big fight.
Since I go strictly AD my runes are mostly just damage and crit with some speed on it. I have the cooldown down, because, well, Shaco's cooldowns are REDUNCILESS! You can do whatever you want with the rune's but this is what I do.
Again, with the AD approach, I go Red offense tree for damage, crit, speed, armor pene, and more damage. I also go into green tree for the health, mana regen and the extra exp to get ahead.
AD: go for attck speed, damage, and crit. Shaco is a mixture of all of them so I go hybrid in the AD items. I start off with zeal so i go faster, attck faster, and crit more at the beginning. I then go for boots to make me go like speedy gonzalez on their arses. Vampiric is next for the Lifesteal which is perfect with damage and speed. UPGRADED BOOTS!!! Now your like a 5 year old on crack jus running around in circles raining death on your enemies! Phantom Dancer.. NOUGH SAID. Then for the rest of my items i just mainly go damge to compliment my speed.
I personally like the combo i have above because they can be used offensively and defensively. Exhaust is one of my other favorites to go with ghost. Main line is that Ghost is a must.
When they are defending. Poke the **** outta em. pop in with a deceive so they dont see you coming shiv drop down a box outta range of the tower so if they chase they get feared.
When they are attcking. chill in the jungle. your decieve can pop you over the wall for a surprise attack and then the tower pwns their ***es.
Team fight. Pop in and out. YOU ARE SQUISHY LIKE SPONGE! dont be the tank. jus run in shiv drop box deceive towards the weakest or the farthest player get behind them and rape in the ********.
When you meet someone in jungle place a box, go invis, get behind them, do a crit behind, shiv as soon as you attck, then pop your ult. By this time your box would have feared them and is hitting em and when you go ult on them, you have .5 sec to 1 sec of untargetable (NOTE THIS OFTEN!!!)
yes its short but whtcha going do? most people wont even read this... most will jus look for the items and the skills and be like "I know how to play him/her now! LE's GO!"... so yea for those of you out there who will read this sorry i did not go into depth.:P
