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.
Shaco is a meelee ad champions who specialises at making his opponents rage quit.I play shaco as a jungler even though i use the enemies jungle more than mine.In teamfights what i try to do is ks the ad carry and make my clone take all the damage for me.
i get the offense tree till the armor pen and spent the rest of the points to the defense tree
i try to get a mix of damage and critical chance through my items with a small dose of durability. Wriggle's Lantern is a must have item for all ad junglers. Boots of Mobility give shaco a lot of movement speed so he can chase and backstab people or escape 5 man gangs.Homeguard is just cool. Infinity Edge gives you critical chance that you need on shaco and damage. Guardian Angel gives you armor and magic resist.It also gives you the ability to come to life and murder more people. Statikk Shiv gives you more critlical chance. Trinity Force gives basically damage ap mana health critical chance attack speed and all this cool stuff.IF YOU DONT BUY THESE ITEMS SHACO WILL COME TO YOUR HOUSE AND KILL YOU
max Deceive first as this is going to be your ganging weapon and your main damage source since your are playing ad shaco.Then max your Two-Shiv Poison for the slow.Last max your Jack In The Box as you ll need only at the jungle.Take points at your Hallucinate when ever available
if you want take Ghost
Pros / Cons
high mobility champion
strong at early, mid and late game
lets be honest!Shaco has no cons
Creeping / Jungling
just set a bunch of Jack In The Box down and wait
sent in the middle of the team fight your clone while focus the enemy adc with your Deceive and after that try to ks your team as much as possible
forgot to troll
Like many other junglers Shaco is an anti-carry.From my experience i know that Shaco can quickly focus and shut down the enemy ADC.APC though that have lots of CC and durability will have no problem facing Shaco. Shaco 's biggest weakness are the tanks.[[shaco] is just not made to fight heavy tanks.
Deceive will teleport Shaco to a near target location and his next basic attack is guaranted to crit.
Jack In The Box is a box that Shaco places on the ground.After 2 seconds it becomes stealth if an enemy walks near the box it will cause it to wake up and hit him dealing magic damage.After it wakes up it will die after a short delay.The box lasts 60 seconds.
Two-Shiv Poison has a passive and an active effect.Passively Shaco's basic attack will slow the target's movement speed and will make some of the minions basic attack to miss.Actively shaco will throw his knife to a nearby enemy and deal magic damage.It will also apply a really strong slow.
Hallucinateis Shaco's ultimate.Shaco creates a copy of hiself that will follow him for the next 30 seconds and will attack the enemies that Shaco does dealing the same ammount of damage as Shaco would.If the clone is killed or his time runs out it will explode dealing damage to nearbuy enemies
AP MID SHACO
This may sound stupid but ap shaco still works.Start by taking your jungler's little golems for the xp advantage.With your Jack In The Box you wont take any damage.
I ll go over this really fast because it's simple. Faerie Charm and health potions is going to be your starting items so you can poke a lot without worrying about mana problems.Then get a bit of durability and a lot of AP.
