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.
Roam shaco??? your crazy! probably what you're thinking right now. Well trust me, there is alot of ways you can actually play shaco but you actually need some experience on playing shaco before you decide to roam with him. For example, knowing how to gank very basic with shaco. I will still explain the skill order and all. anyways please enjoy and review.
Ok starting off is our basic 21 0 9 masteries taking attack damage, armor pentration, attack speed and life steal under the offense tree. I dont take any defense masteries for the simple fact, shaco needs to deal as much dmg as possible and contiune to fight and escape with his life especially when your roaming. Finally, I take 9 in utility taking, mana per level, improve recall by 1 second, movement speed, and longer buff durations. Even though your laning shaco theres many ways you can start off but i wont get into this until later.
For runes i take armor pentration marks, mana regen per level, Cooldown reduction glyphs, and armor pentration quints. I think this helps in jungling and also fighting agaisnt tanks that are on low hp. This how I usually shaco jungle aswell.
Like I said in my masteries discussion, there many ways you can start of shaco such as early lvl 1 gank, by picking up decieve or maybe even JITB and just stack them in a brush but i wont get into that just yet. Usually I start off with JITB, then pick up two shiv, and my decieve at lvl 3 for the early gank, I max out two shiv first because its the most important ability shaco has, basically allows shaco to chase because of the slow movement on the active and deal damage at the same time. I then get my JITB maxed out since the fear is probably the most important thing you will ever use when playing shaco, if your jungling or your just trying to get a quick kill on a gank by placing the JITB behind your enemy, Finally i max out decieve last because it is not that important since u will have ghost to escape but the auto crit is still very good for shaco.
Start by taking blue first by placing a JITB at 55 secs behind where the golem spawns, then take it and head to wolves, u shud get your decieve when you hit lvl 2. Now you have to 2 options one you can try to gank only if they are really over extended and pushed or you can contiune your standard jungle.
Plan D BAG
I call this plan D bag, make sure they have a jungler and one of your teammates have CVfind out where the jungler started and wait on the opposite side of there jungler in a brush placing JITB start to place them at 1:45 by the time they finsish red/blue they will come around and you will fear them with jitb and kill em taking there red/blue then you can either A steal some of there jungle, or B go help out one of your lanes till you are lvl 4 and can start to roaming with shaco
