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.
Ahh, it's Shen again.
I've been playing Shen for a long time now and I've been checking out several builds going from 3 sunfire capes to a 3 warmog armor's build, a health regen build and even a couple of dps builds but in the end I created this build which works well for me.
When the game starts I mostly start off throwing my vorpal blade around alot. Even though it's damage output isn't frightfully high many opponent's do tend to run away from you every time you throw it at them, which gives you an edge in minion killing.
In mid game I'm mostly busy saving team-mates from certain death. I do so by teleporting or just walking in and taunting all the enemies around and then run away. It's a simple way to help your friend run away and thanks to your own tank build you still have a fair chance to run away yourself (I mostly succeed, unless they have stuns or slows).
Finally you have those tanking skills you want, this is the time for team fights Taunting many opponent's at once and still surviving, note: don't use vorpal blade to much because you will want that energy for your feints when 5 opponent's are attacking you all at once at late game, and one of the most important parts of tanking: Turret Tanking!
I chose teleport because as an assist Tank I like to add Teleport to Shen's Stand United, giving me 2 teleporting skills to jump over the map for assist Tanking, also you can go back to turret defending emediatly after recalling.
Exhaust was my choice because without it Shen has a very low killing chance and because it degrades enemy damage even further
Hopefully you will be able to make great use of my build and if I'm lucky, you'll have a couple of extra tips to make it better.
