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.
Ladies and gentlemen, welcome!
I wanted to make a League of Legends guide a long time ago, but I wondered, wich champion? Well,
no other than Shaco!
1 - Why a Shaco guide?
R: Well, Shaco is my main since the day I bought him. Is awesome ability to deal damage and
escape made me fall in love with this evil guy.
2 - Why is Shaco always banned in Ranked match?
R: If he is not, just try a game with or agaisn't him, you'll see by yourself.
3 - Will this guide be updated alot?
R: With every update that will affect our lovely jester.
(13/02/2011): Guide published, not totally finished.
(14/02/2011): Guide renamed and the build as been remade.
Shaco, the Demon Jester
Most would say that death isn't funny. It isn't, unless you're Shaco - then it's hysterical. He is Valoran's first fully functioning homicidal comic; he jests until someone dies, and then he laughs. The figure that has come to be known as the Demon Jester is an enigma. No one fully agrees from whence he came, and Shaco never offers any details on his own. A popular belief is that Shaco is not of Runeterra - that he is a thing summoned from a dark and twisted world. Still others believe that he is the demonic manifestation of humanity's dark urges and therefore cannot be reasoned with. The most plausible belief is that Shaco is an assassin for hire, left to his own lunatic devices until his services are needed. Shaco certainly has proven himself to be a cunning individual, evading authorities at every turn who might seek him for questioning for some horrendous, law-breaking atrocity. While such scuttlebutt might reassure the native inhabitants of Valoran, it seems unimaginable that such a malfeasant figure is allowed to remain at large.
Whatever the truth of his history might be, Shaco has joined the League of Legends for reasons only he knows. He is a terrifying figure, typically shunned by both his fellow champions and the media at large. Only the summoners in the Institute of War know why such a creature was allowed into the League, but most Runeterrans suspect it to be a means that allows the power that be to keep an eye on the ever-elusive Shaco. Unsurprisingly, this champion is popular in places where madness can openly reign, such as among the power-hungry summoners of Zaun and Noxus.
Whatever you do, don't tell him you missed the punch line.
Runes and Masteries
Some may say that my Rune build is wierd, but I like it for one thing: It let you survive longer in lane, give you more Attack Speed and some nice Armor Penetration for those Tank on the enemy team.
Marks - 9 Desolation (1.66 Armor Penetration)
6 Desolation, 3 Alacrity (1.66 Armor Penetration, 1.7% Attack
Seals - 9 Alacrity (0.76% Attack Speed)
Glyphs - 9 Alacrity (0.64% Attack Speed)
Quintessences - 3 Fortitude (26 Health)
3 Strength (2.25 Attack Damage)
Then comes the Masteries, wich is a normal build. There are different way of making it,
you can go:
21 / 0 / 9
21 / 9 / 0
9 / 0 / 21
0 / 9 / 21
I take the 21 / 9 / 0, as it make you deal more damage and sustain longer in lane without backing up to base.
The skill squence is pretty simple, you take Two-Shiv Poison first, for harass/damage and then a point in Deceive for escape and ganking. Finally, you take a point in Jack In The Box, for those who dare to go in the bush. After those , you go with this formula:
Two-Shiv Poison > Deceive > Hallucinate > Jack In The Box
Pretty simple, isn't it?
When you get into combat, there is two way to start. Or you deceive, hit in his back than r*ape him hard, or you start with a Two-Shiv Poison, THEN, deceive and kill him.
