Introduction

Heya everybody, Infinity Toast is my name.

I present to you, my dear readers, my excellent hybrid Shaco guide.
and please try before you vote because you'll never know how effective this build is.SPACE
Hybrid is pretty unique style on fields of league but the Shaco + hybrid combo will work great!

"What will hybrid Shaco do?"
Well... i'll tell you some pros and cons if you build as hybrid Shaco

______________________________________________________________________________________________


Pros
  • viable late game
  • Shaco's clone scales 1:1 on attack speed, thus makes Shaco's clone much stronger.
  • Shred's magic resist to help casters like Anivia, Annie
    or Brand deal better damage to your targets.
  • Has a huge amount of armors.
SPACE
Cons

  • Low hp.(I resolved this with hp per level runes)
  • Low sustain from Vampiric Scepter at early game because of his low amount of attack damage.
  • Shaco is top focus and very buggy, nuff said.

Runes and masteries



greater mark of desolation for better jungling and ripping armor stacking players.

greater seal of vitality Shaco has terrible hp base stats so let's increase it.

Greater Glyph of Scaling Magic Resist special rune to counter strong mages Annie Anivia!

greater quintessence of vitality see greater seal of vitality.
______________________________________________________________________________________________


"why don't you pick 21/0/9 WTF?"

well i say some reasons at every mastery why i pick...

Good picks
Offensive
______________________________________________________________________________________________
Utility
  • i take two points into Utility Mastery because you're a jungler and the leftover points into Meditation . "I pick Greed cuz it's good!" "1gold per 10sec, 6gold per 1min and you've only 180gold every 30min... never take this mastery unless you got leftover points"
______________________________________________________________________________________________
Bad picks

Viable summoner spells for Shaco


Good pick

  • Smite helps you to speed up jungling.
  • Ghost best escape summoner spell on Shaco in my opinion, because it grants 27%(+6% mastery) speed, 10sec(1,5sec+ mastery) and ignores unit collision. (you can use Ghost while Deceive without breaking stealth!)
  • Exhaust increases your win chance on 1v1 fight.
  • Ignite some extra damage would help you finish off low hp enemies and you can use it while Deceive without breaking it.
  • Cleanse is pretty solid spell to get rid of crowd control.

Bad pick
  • Revive "yo guys! i'm dying alot so i take this"

  • Promote removed No worry! it will be added again at dominion mod!
  • Rally trash tier summoner spell...

Way 2 build as Shaco

What most junglers take is Cloth Armor, 5 Health Potion and Madred's Razors if you got 700 gold.

I take Boots of Mobility at early game for moving around the map easier and you can switch with Mercury's Tread later.

For some sustain i took Vampiric Scepter on early game but i'm not sure what i could built into at last item, you can switch it with Warmog's Armor or The Bloodthirster whatever you like.

For Wit's End i took Recurve Bow as first, if you got some problems with casters then pick Null-Magic Mantle first.

then Malady with 2 Dagger Dagger first and finish Madred's Bloodrazor

if Shaco enters late game then i takes Guardian Angel becuase it would give you a chance to escape of lost teamfight with Deceive

last pick is your choice

Shaco's skillz

Backstab

This passive makes Shaco an effective anti carry by hitting enemies behind to deal maximum damage.

Deceive

A close gap ability but i would save it up if Shaco enters back of the teamfight (where mostly carries Ashe Caitlyn Tristana or supporters Soraka Sona Taric stand) then there's no need to use close gap!

Jack In The Box

An ability to jungle, map awareness and crowd control enemies, for experienced Shaco players i suggest to max Jack In The Box first because Jack In The Box gives crowd control and damage at once.

Two-Shiv Poison

Sort of free Frozen Mallet to make enemies harder to escape, i would suggest you to save up Two-Shiv Poison till your target ran out Shaco's melee range.

Hallucinate

This "i make 2v1 noaw" ability will make enemies cause to confuse, increase damage output and blocking some abilities like Nidalee's Javelin Toss, Caitlyn's Ace in the Hole or dodging Requiem by using Hallucinate!


Guide Top

Jungle routes

Aggresieve way (pull red, be lv2 and GANK!) or continue jungling ^^ most effective way, safe and easy!


Guide Top

Ganking

"This is the most effectivest way to gank as Shaco with Deceive, and you can easily avoid sight ward so Nasus bot didn't notice Shaco gank"
"same way as gank one"


Guide Top

Hallucinate, double problems!

Hallucinate has many uses!

  • Hallucinate can be casted while Deceive without breaking stealth, forces enemies focus clone first.
  • and much much more, discover em all!


Guide Top

conclusion

_______________________________________________________________________________________________
Thanks for reading my Shaco hybrid guide and please try first before you vote & comment.

Also one role what you always schould fill as Shaco is destroying carries Ashe Vayne and supporters Soraka Sona!

How patch notes affect Shaco

Note: i only show patch notes that affects Shaco(above 1.0.0.120)
______________________________________________________________________________________________
http://leagueoflegends.wikia.com/wiki/V1.0.0.123
______________________________________________________________________________________________


Mordekaiser

Mordekaiser no longer clones Shaco's clone with Children of the Grave.


Shaco
This bugg fix affects Jack In The Box AI which made Shaco unpossible to jungle.

Jack In The Box now no longer aggros neutral targets untill they aggro you or your teammates and will choose random targets.

You can jungle by putting Jack In The Box behind red or blue and attack the big one and atleast one Jack In The Box choices random target.


General
  • Fixed a bug where clones did not show items in their inventories
Makes harder to detect real Shaco
