Not Updated For Current Season
Hi guys, this is the Shaco, I have been playing a some time. He is building in critical, so, in some early, crit strke we can get a easily first kill. As the name of the build, he is not a OWNAGE, or something like that. His work in the team is to get the enemy champion with more dmg. Normally I was getting Ryze, Ashe Karthus and others. The problem, you don't get any survivability, so is be quick or be dead.
For itens, I get a Saphire Crystal at beginning for the mana, to spam some dagger. You can take more than 200 in one crit and shiv strike after, so early game he can be very good. Try to lane with someone with CC, prefer Stun or Snare or Fear. Be cautious ever, as someone in this forum has alredy said, the unique thing that can kill Shaco is you. Deceive is a very good way to flee from your opponents.
From Itens, I take Boots of Swiftness to get after these little fast squishes. Triforce for the dmg and the more survivability. Then Infinity that is a item with the name shaco behind it, and then depends on the game. Black Cleaver just destroy many enemies. Yumuu for the Armor Penetration and the addtional attack and survavibility. And then Bloodthirster for more dmg. They have so many mages that they **** me! First, you have to take out at least 1 of them, this is your work, if you cant a Banshee Veils can take a one or two seconds that you need to take out the squishes of they party.
More two things, NEVER be the first in a battle, wait for your target use his CC and them Deceive-> Attack -> Ult -> JitB behing the line -> Atack -> Dagger in his back when he wil try to flee. Last one, don't try to take anyone 1x1, yes, in late game you can, but if they trap for you, you will be dead in 0,5s.
Ghost and Exaust are my choices for the survivability of exaust and then Ghost help when a enemy use a Flash ou any littie TP.
Yes my Shaco can't survive many things, but this is my vision, I have to help the team, Take the char that can take my team in a battle, and then (if I can, take a little of another or run) the rest is for your team. Another thing is that I don't take Sword of The Occoult because you die frequentely in late game, and in more than 80% of the cases a Bloodthirster is better (In this build, in another I think that is a great Item).
To play with Shaco you need trust with your team.
