Passive spells :
Why use ghost and ignite ?
At the beggining of the game , u need to take some advantage .
If you want to take first blood u can easily ambush your enemy , ignite him , hit him a couple of times and voila , ur on your way to farm ! :)
If you dont buy items like zeal , phantom dancer etc. it will be very hard for shaco to catch running oppopnents , so in that case u use ghost , u easily catch enemy , kill him and run away very fast before the others get there .
Why not take FLASH ?
In fact , flash has the same effect as deceive , so you dont really need it , u can also use decieve to go through walls :)
Why not take HEAL ?
Shaco is great in escaping , so you dont use heal .
Why not take SMITE ?
You shouldn't be taking this , unless you want to jungle with shaco .
Why not take EXHAUST ?
Shiv poison is as good as exhaust .
Why not take CLARITY ?
As you buy sheen , your mana increases , and abilites dont drain much mana , so this isn't needed .
Why not take FORTIFY ?
This u dont need definetely , leave this to the tanks .
In fact , Ignite and ghost are everything you need .
DURING THE GAME !
At the beggining , play defensive , dont rush ur enemies , except they are low hp or n00bs :)
Use deceive always u can to critical strike .
Put Jack in the box in grass , so if enemies enter it , u will be able to see them .
If you are alone against a stronger opponent , use Hallucinate .
Btw , buy on hit equip items , like phage to make your hallucinate ' clone ' stronger .
