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.
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 .
