Introduction

If you like AP and Mid you should play AP SHEN, and all they will cry and flame when you destroy them in a instant.
Shen will do all you want: kill, escape, heal, laugh in her faces and save your girlfriends. Why? Cause is AP SHEN!!!.
Your mates also will flame you, but you must say: RELAX!

Runes

You're thinking:
-Hey Geo why no Magic Resist? They will f**k you in lane!!! You are so f**kiing silly OMG I will shot in my pe**s and suicide.
-No man don't do this. You have Feint for auto atacks and Shadow Dash for dodge all.

I can be serious:

Runes

Greater Seal of Armor
9

Greater Mark of Magic Penetration
9

Greater Glyph of Scaling Ability Power
9

Greater Quintessence of Ability Power
3
These runes are basic for an AP Mid champion.
-Seals of Armor in order to not have problems with minions or enemys ganks.
-Marks of Magic Penetration for dont be useless building AP.
-Glyphs of Scaling AP for damage in late game.
-Quintessences of a basic AP.

Summoner spells

I generally prefer Ignite in order to kill faster and secure some kills.
But my traductor Destokado prefers Teleport to gain

A LOT

of mobility in the whole map.
With this spell you can splitpush more and faster, and also, YOU HAVE 2 teleports! Stand United
You can also pick both, Ignite and Teleport, you also have a gap closer and a way to scape with Shadow Dash, so you can pick both or get Barrier or something like that

Items

Why this items? Here you got the answer:

STARTING ORDER
The order is simply, start with Amplifying Tome and Health Potion ( Doran's Ring is useless), continue with Haunting Guise for more healt, and start Sheen for Lich Bane, now buy Sorcerer's Shoes and finish Lich Bane, next buy the enchant you want,but i prefer Enchantment: Homeguard.
Now the order is completly free.

CORE ITEMS
Lich Bane Thats essential for shen because his pasive gives you extra damage, buy this item first, if you dont buy lich bane in the game.
Liandry's Torment This will give you extra AP and HP, his pasive is too usefull and will increas your pasive damage Ki Strike and Vorpal Blade pasive, so you got too much more resistance in lane.
Deathfire Grasp This will be give you coldown reduction and extra AP for use more faster abilities and his pasive to shut down their carry/ap mid.
Sorcerer's Shoes + Enchantment: Homeguard You will arrive so fast to your lane and don't lose too much farm and if you're using Stand United from the base can save your mates and catch enemys so easy.


Guide Top

Farming

Farm with Shen is easy, simply do last hit and if the enemy dont let you farm use Vorpal Blade and Feint to avoid damage from enemys, you can heal with Vorpal Blade hitting auto to enemys.
You should do splitpush if the game is going bad for you and your team, you can use your ult to scape so. What?


Guide Top

Teamwork

Your objective in teamfights is to kill the enemy carry, but never lose your mind, if you are in a bad position, never engage full to the carry, remember that you are not tank! your spells will do the enemy carry useless in teamfights and this will win teamfights. You must should save your carry with Stand United and taunting enemys with Shadow Dash.
When you play shen, is preferible to be premade, or DuoQ in Ranked, you can easily say when your ult is ready and your friends will say when you should use your ultimate.

Pros / Cons

Pros:
-Too much resistance in lane.
-Easy to save teammates.
-Multiple taunting in team fights.
-Disables the enemy carry.
-Great for recibe and do ganks.
-No mana.

Cons:
-The energy disappears too quickly
-When Vorpal Blade and Vorpal Blade is used you don't have more offensive spells.
But your Deathfire Grasp is made for this situations!
