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.
So you decided to play AP shaco
Mjeehh, this is lame, people are gonna call u a *****. The reason to play AP Shaco for me is just for the laugh. There is no greater feeling in LoL than to see some carry walk in to 6 or 7 of your straticly placed boxes and die.
Patience is very important is you are playing AP shaco, but I got some tricks where to place boxes, en wich area's are most likely to get you a kill.
Items and your combo
Okay so basicly you want to rush deathfire asap. But buy your boots in between voor the movement speed. As soon as you get your dfg, its on! Place your boxes in a brush or somewhere in your lane where minions cant get to it. when you see your victim walk into your stacks of boxes, stealth in with your q. if you can crit him, but otherwise throw your 2 shive. Finish with the active from dfg and ignite and if nessesary, flash out.
Sounds easy right? Thats only because it is. If you stack AP you can take out a full HP carry with just 2 or 3 boxes. Early game it requires patience, but it will pay off.
Low HP: attack of the clone
So now you are screwed. You are low on HP and there is a full HP squishy running around. You know if you try your combo you will die.
Hide in the nearest brush and let your low HP clone run into the carry like a maniak. When it dies it does a ****load of damage to your victim. Then invis with q and do the usual combo as i said before.
Teamfight: Shaco, the finisher (rd: KSer)
This is gonna piss your teammates off. In a teamfight you are basicly like gangplank in teamfight. Run in, do 1 attack, than run out. But you have an invis skill so its easy to get close. Like an evelynn try to finish off low HP's, and than gtfo (try to gtfo in the direction of your boxes for another cheap kill)
Fear the boxes
Places to stack your boxes:
5. The brush in your lane (obvious)
4. The brush in your teammates lane, when you go back, walk through the river and when you are in the gank spot, q and walk across invis. Place boxes in the brush and walk back invis, keep in mind that the enemy can see your smoke. But if your teammates are pushing the tower, the enemy wont even know you were there.
3. the little narrow street between the jungle and the rivir on mid, it gets used a lot.
2. The brush near the baron/dragon, classic.
1. THEIR BLUEBUFF! As soon as you see its up, go and place as many boxes in the brush near their bluebuff as possible.
Counter jungle with boxes.
when you have a jungler against you its most likely they start at the bluebuff. Place your boxes in between their bluebuff and the wolf camp, the enemy jungler is low op hp from the bluebuff and will die from your boxes, free kill and bluebuff for you.
thats pretty much it, enjoy! and remember: any time spent not boxing is time better spent boxing, the joke's on them!
