Introduction

Well, first of all i want to greet all of you, this is my first Guide i create, and i will accept all reviews and will use them for improve.

Shen is in my opinion one of the best tanks in LoL, he has a Taunt, like Rammus, and nice helpful abilities like Stand United than can save lifes to your match mates.

Hope you like the guide, and remember I am noob at guiding!

Why this masteries?:

Well, i use this tipycal tank masteries with some customs, for example:

1 Point to : Summoner's Wrath , Ignite will help you to win in your lane, and obviously for getting some kills. Exhaust this will help you in top aswell, and in teamfight, for using it on a hard enemmy and make teamfights more light.

1 Point to : Siege Commander , well, this is a point that i didn't know how much to use it, so i think in pushing and it's usefull for destroying towers fast and go back if there's any danger.

I think he points in Utility doesn't need to be explained.

Skills

Ki Strike :

Every 8 seconds, Shen's next attack will deal 8% of bonus health point as bonus magic damage (base damage of 10). Each time a champion hits Shen with an attack, Ki Strike activates 2 seconds quicker.
15 extra damage at level 1. Solid passive ability. Also lowers its cooldown when you get hit by any source of damage. You can maximize your damage with this passive up before taunting someone and using Vorpal Blade. Also great for side pushing a lane.

Vorpal Blade:

Deals 50/90/130/170/210 (+65% of ability power) magic damage to target unit. That unit becomes life tapped for 5 seconds, healing any champions who attack it for 10 / 20 / 30 / 40 / 50 (+20% of ability power) health over 3 seconds.

Cost 70 / 65 / 60 / 55 / 50 energy

Range 475

Feint :

Shen enters a defensive stance, shielding the next 50 / 100 / 150 / 200 / 250 (+60% of ability power) damage. Lasts up to 1.5 seconds.

Cost 45 energy

Range 20

Shadow dash:

Shen rapidly dashes to a target location, Taunting enemies he collides with for 0.8 / 1.1 / 1.4 / 1.7 / 2 second(s).
Restores 50 Energy if you hit a champion.

Cost 120 / 115 / 110 / 105 / 100 energy (Care with this! Don't use it so much times or you won't have enough energy when you need it)

Range 25000

Stand united:

Places a shield on both a target allied champion and Shen, absorbing 200/475/750 (+100% of ability power) damage for 7.5 seconds. After channeling for 2.5 seconds, Shen teleports to the target's location.

So helpful ulti, think on using it for saving lifes to your allies!

Cost 50 energy

Range 25000

Items

Here goes my item's build for Shen:

Item Sequence











Boots of Speed
300

Mercury's Treads
1100

Giant's Belt
1000

Warmog's Armor
2850

Phage
1250

Frozen Mallet
3100

Sunfire Cape
2900

Randuin's Omen
2900

Guardian Angel

All this items gives you HP, that boost Shen's skills like Ki Strike and Vorpal Blade and gives you armor and magic resist.

Why don't get Thornmail :

Well, i don't usually buy it because i have Exhaust and i normally use it on champs like Caitlyn, Vayne, Tryndamere, or Master Yi, for example.

Summary

Well, here ends my guide for Shen, as you can see, simple, and usefull (i think), please, rate it, place a comment and tell me what's wrong, what you will improve on it, and if you give me +rep will be an incentive for working harder each time.

Thank you so much for reading this, and remember that you are a tank, let your team get the kills and die if neccesary.

Thanks to jhoijhoi and his Making a Guide guide that explained me clearly how to make this.

Love ya all <3
